I think the age of the sequel might be coming to an end.  

Now there is a Berverly HillS Copi IV.  I am not sure that would pay to see that.
Lately, I've been wondering what is happening with the sequel to "The Italian Job" - named "The Brizilian Job". In the Imdb website, their date states 2009!! It was supposed to be out this year!

Anyway, I found a very recent article that explains my question...

Quote:
Brazilian Job Still On.
Heist follow-up awaiting script.

by Paul Davidson

US, May 2, 2007 - Following the success of The Italian Job and a new-found romance with caper films in Hollywood, it wasn't long before a sequel was proposed. The Brazilian Job, as the follow-up was tentatively named, was expected to be given a fast green light and reach theatres by 2007.

Along the way, however, the process stalled. One significant culprit for the delay has reportedly been the screenplay. David Twohy of Pitch Black fame was hired to pen the picture, but from the sounds of things he still hasn't turned in a story everyone is happy with. According to the UK's Northern Echo, lead Mark Wahlberg won't sign on until the movie gets past that stage.

"They're trying to get the script there," explained Wahlberg, the star of The Italian Job. "I like that they're willing to get it there, but I'm not willing to risk it without having it on the page."

The Internet Movie Database currently projects a release date of 2008 for the heist adventure, which means production would have to begin sometime this year. Unless we hear further progress updates in the next few months, however, don't count on it.

Twohy's only other project on the go at the moment is the thriller A Perfect Getaway, which he plans to direct himself. Wahlberg is preparing to star in M. Night Shyamalan's new sci-fi drama The Happening. He also recently starred in The Shooter, an action flick about a presidential assassination plot.

I suppose since Spider-Man 2 had the "Happy Peter" sequence with Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head playing, it made it a turkey as well.

The best I can come up with is the "Raimi Formula", using another popular trilogy of his.

Evil Dead: 100% Serious
Evil Dead 2: 75% Serious, 25% Comedy
Army of Darkness: 50% Serious, 50% Comedy

Spider-Man: 100% Serious
Spider-Man 2: 75% Serious, 25% Comedy
Spider-Man 3: 50% Serious, 50% Comedy

Now, Spider-Man 2 IS the best out of these three, but what about the "Dead" Trilogy? Don't most people consider the goofy Army of Darkness as the best? Didn't they not say so at first?
Sorry about that, but considering Spider-man 3 has already been out for more than a month, I presumed all of you interested have already seen it, so there is no need for me to spoiler what I said.

I'll spoiler next time I do something like this again, sorry about that.

I trust you mean Superman III... Otherwise we got a fight on our hands... Tongue


Yes I did, thought I had typed the third "I". Superman II is one of my all time favourite movies. Superman III only has two things that make it worth watching, Chris Reeve and the Clark/Superman junkyard fight. Superman IV is just awful.
Dude... Spoilers...
Yep. I with you Cheddar J. Cheese, the worst sequel of the Superman series is III. Richard Pryor? What were the producers thinking?! BORING!

Anyway, I'd also like to state the fact that I really enjoyed Spider-man 3. I thought it was cool how the producers brought in not one, but 3 villans Spoiler Then again, they weren't exactly villans. Some evil powers and experiments were forced upon them. I just wished they hadn't killed off Harry Osborn, just when he found out from his trusted butler that Peter Parker/ Spider-man was telling the truth about how his dad (Harry's) died.

I enjoyed Spider-man 3 a lot. It's not like it's anywhere near as bad as Superman II or IV are, it's close to the quality of the first movie. I don't see why Sony should stop making sequels, the series is still a viable franchise, making lots of money and there are quite a few good villains can would be great on screen.

Don't worry, they'll all eat their words in a few years with the DVD. It gets better with each viewing, although most people won't "waste another boring 2 and a half hours" watching it.

But really though, how many people who said it sucked, both on here and in general are gonna go out and buy the DVD when it comes out? Quite a lot I suspect.

It didn't, but whatever.

Well I was hoping since the last one stunk the place up so bad...

Not really news, but ok.

Quote: Lucasfilm and Paramount today confirmed the casting rumors of Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone, and John Hurt in Indiana Jones 4. While doing so, they also confirmed that Sean Connery will not return as Indy's father in the film.

Here's what Sir Sean had to say about it:

Sean Connery said: I get asked the question so often, I thought it best to make an announcement. I thought long and hard about it and if anything could have pulled me out of retirement it would have been an Indiana Jones film. I love working with Steven and George, and it goes without saying that it is an honor to have Harrison as my son. But in the end, retirement is just too damned much fun. I, do however, have one bit of advice for Junior: Demand that the critters be digital, the cliffs be low, and for goodness sake keep that whip by your side at all times in case you need to escape from the stunt coordinator! This is a remarkable cast, and I can only say, 'Break a leg, everyone.' I'll see you on May 22, 2008 at the theater!

Quote: Also...Frank Miller, author and artist of the graphic novels upon which the Sin City movies are taken from, has spoken out concerning Sin City 2 and he says that it's simply been delayed.

Yes, because of Angelina Jolie I believe. That's the rumour isn't it? She held off because she was pregnant and attached as Eva Lord? Well anyways, the current rumour is Rachel Weisz. I don't know the characters at all, all I know of Sin City is the movie from 3 years back, but I think she could pull the role off nicely. A very talented actress.

Spiderman 4!!!!!!!NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Who are the villians going to be? Vulture? Hydroman? Kraven? They have nearly run out! Mysterio and Scorpion together might be interesting? If Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst do not come back it will be even more pointless!Not sure about Jaws 5, Gremlins 3 and Goonies 2?! No Donner or Dante makes it lose its majik big time! Apart from the Goonies why would Warner and Universal go back and do more sequels to movies ie Jaws3-4 and Gremlins 2 that frankly stunk? Shame about Connery's announcement! How old would old man Jones have to be if the movie is set in the 50's?

gremlins 3?  i herd that JAWS 5 is a rumor

Here's a couple upcoming DTV sequels for you:

American Pie 6/American Pie Presents: Beta House, Lake Placid 2, Jaws 5, Gremlins 3, Goonies 2, White Noice 2: The Light, Van Helsing 2, Pumpkinhead 4: Blood Feud, Creepshow 3, The Lost Boys 2, House of Re-Animator, Re-Animator Unbound!, Re-Animator Begins, Return of the Living Dead 5: Rave to The Grave, Half Past Dead 2: Justified, Walking Tall 2, Walking Tall 3, Starship Troopers 3, Return to House on Haunted Hill, Into The Blue 2, Legally Blond 3, The Craft 2...





Into the Blue 2???

I liked the first one, but I think they should lure Jessica and Paul back for a real sequel.

Jaws 5, Gremlins 3... man, it will be a odd thing to see sequels like these go direct to DVD.  Still a new offical Jaws movie would be neat and could not be worse than part 4.
A source very close to the Re-animator films tells me that the UnBound and Begins have gone out of production and the only one on the table currently is House Of Re-Animator; which is going to happen.
More sequel news...Point Break 2 is being written into a script right now, with production to beigin at the end of this year....

Peter Iliff Helming Point Break 2

Source: Variety

May 15, 2007

Peter Iliff (Patriot Games) will write and direct Point Break 2, a 20 years later sequel to the surfing crime thriller that he co-wrote in 1987 and was a hit for Largo Entertainment in 1991.

Variety says the new film will be set in Southeast Asia and uncover the fate of the surfers' leader Bodhi who was supposedly killed by a giant wave. The action follows a surfer-turned-SEAL on the trail of a criminal gang. Locations being scouted include Indonesia and Singapore.

The film is being set up by Singapore-Australian talent management and production firm RGM Entertainment as a $20 million-$30 million independent production.

Production schedule sees filming starting by the end of current year with delivery for late 2008. RGM's CEO Devesh Chetty said casting will include English-language and Asian male leads and Asian female love interest.

I really want to see a Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day. There has been a lot of talk starting it, and the script is written, but you know how Troy Duffy is.
Personally I don't think they should make Spider-Man 4. This is because by the looks of it 3 would be as awesome as 2. Also remember that Spidy 2 was the best reviewed comic book films of all. I'd say hit 3 and keep it as possibly the best comic book franchise ever made.

As for now, I can't wait to see 3.
More sequels?
Just when I thought Spider-man 3 might be the end of the series, I read in Yahoo movies that the producers have already started writing the 4th! Unbelievable!

And there's even a new Mummy movie coming! Brendan Fraser will be back minus his on screen wife played by Rachel Weisz, as I heard she's busy with other film commitments.

Does anyone want to add any sequel news here? Please do!
