The good, the bad, and the downright “why” of sequels being made. This list features sequels- but we still have no idea what they’re about or if they will be made. That is why we put a asterisk (*) after those that may be rumored or that chances are, won’t be made.
This time, it’s Liam Neeson who needs saving when he and his wife are caught back in Europe by the fathers of the men Liam Neeson killed. (Because obviously, when you get kidnapped, you go back to the place where it happened).
In this James Bond movie, (23rd. . .milking it just a bit?), Bond (Daniel Craig) must help M (Judi Dench) when a villain (Javier Bardem) from her past comes for revenge.
It’s not really a sequel, but rather a spin-off, which features the cast of The Lord of the Rings.
Rumored to be the final in the Die Hard series, Bruce Willis must fight Russian terrorists in Russia with his son.
This will actually be a prequel to the 1939 classic, depicting the story of how Oz came to be.
Starring mostly everyone in the first movie, as well as Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson, the movie does lose a few characters, leaving just Channing Tatum. The plot revolves around the idea that the Joes still have to fight Cobra, while the government tries to shut them down.
While the plot is still unknown, it has been rumored that Tony Stark will go to China to fight Mandarin, and that it will most likely be Robert Downey Jr.’s last time playing Iron Man.
Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto return as Kirk and Spock in this untitled Star Trek sequel, which has rumored it will feature Benedict Cumberbatch (a British actor known for Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) as the villain Khan.
Must I really explain this one?
This could be considered a prequel, since it looks at Mike and Sulley’s friendship.
Starring Al Pachino as the villain, the film is to show Gru’s life with the children.
Prequel to 300, it stars new British actors Jack O’Connell and Sullivan Stapleton as Calisto and Themistocles.
This sequel will feature all the characters in the last film as well as Anthony Hopkins as the main villain. It is still rumored that Morgan Freeman will be in the film.
Clive Owen’s character seeks revenge from Ava Lord, the woman who betrayed him, and Nancy must learn to live alone.
Again, having pretty much all of the characters as the first movie, this sequel takes place after the events of The Avengers.
This takes place after The Hobbit, where Bilbo Baggins finds himself in trouble again.
Will Farrell announced on Conan that they are filming the film, and it the details are pretty well kept.
You read that right, they’re making another Kick-Ass movie, and this time, it centers on the identities of the heroes, and the people who knew who they really are.
Taking over from Mel Gibson, Tom Hardy plans to play Mad Max in Fury Road, which will also feature Charlize Theron as Furiosa and Nicholas Hoult as Nux. There is also a rumor that director George Miller will film another Mad Max sequel after this one.
This time, Captain America is in the modern world (if you don’t remember how the first one ended, he was frozen, melted, and placed in the modern Times Square by Samuel L. Jackson) and must take orders from S.H.I.E.L.D. as well as Nick Fury.
Announced before the first movie came out, there is still little known but we are 100% sure the movie will still be made.
While we know it will be made, Michael Bay is trying to cut costs on his budget (too little explosions we suppose) and we put the asterisk because he know for sure it will go over. He stated that the film will most likely go into space and that he wants the past three films to be part of the past, and this one to be a totally different idea.
This is not the “regular” X-Men series, but the First Class spin-off (where we see the young Professor X and Magneto), and takes place after the events of the previous move. Since the title is also the title of a well-known X-Men comic book, we can somewhat guess that the movie will follow the events of the comic. The comic takes place during the 1980s, where an important government official is assassinated, leading to mutants basically becoming slaves.
Ridley Scott has Hampton Fancher , the original screenwriter of Blade Runner, writing the script for this next sequel, which will take place a few years after the first (try almost 20) and will feature a female hero.
Well, since Bond movies are made 2 years apart, it seems logical that another Bond movie will be made in 2014 (despite disagreements between the last 2008 Bond movie and this year). Also, since Craig’s contract states only 3 Bond movies, he might not return as Bond in the 24th movie. Untitled, no synopsis, and rumored actors make this an iffy project. (And that is an actual word).
While some liked it and some hated it, you had to at least smile at the title. The film goes on and off, Jeff Daniels states there will be a sequel while Jim Carrey turned down the role, and the script has never been officially settled on.
Since they already planned a third Hobbit sequel without the first one being released, and since no one has signed on to be cast in this, we will have to wait to see if it will be made.
Again, nothing is known, but the director will be Joe Johnson, and the writers are also the writes from Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
“Confirmed” (more like a maybe)by Tom Hanks, the movie is actually angering fans because they believed the third was the final movie, and when asked, Pixar brings attention to:
Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return to reprise their roles, with Jonah Hill as a unknown role. And for all you True Blood fans, Alexander Skarsgard will return (yes, return .. . he was one of the models killed in the gas scene), making it seem to be a prequel.
Not much is known, although, knowing just how involved James Cameron is with his movies, he plans to film in the Challenger Deep region of the Marianna Trench, which is 7 miles under water, which is also the deepest place on earth.
James Cameron has stated on and off that he will or will not be making the next 3 sequels. Sigourney Weaver as stated that she is filming all three sequels- but what if one bombs? I personally respect Cameron’s decision- he has stated that he will only be making his movies (the ones that he writes) and it is a good marketing strategy since he is taking success of the first film to make 3 more films, instead of waiting for each individual film’s turnout.
The movie will definitely be made (nowadays, sequels are made on success, not on creativity), and it has been rumored to take place after Captain America,. . .so doesn’t that make it a prequel?
While we’re down Pixar memory lane, we might as well address the Finding Nemo 2 sequel. Nothing is known, and we’re not even sure if they’re making the rumor, since Pixar does stay quiet about these things.
All we do know is that Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have signed on for the sequel.
Yes, the film will follow 28 Days later and 28 Weeks Later. While we’re pretty sure that it will be made, we also know they will make a “28 Years Later” and a “28 Decades Later,” and who knows, maybe even a “28 Centuries Later.” Anyhow, there is no one affiliated with it and the director of 28 Days Later (the producer of 28 Weeks Later) Danny Boyle has said it might happen.
Tim Burton has stated that he will make the movie, but only if Michael Keaton will star in it, and only if Seth Grahame-Smith’s script appeals to Burton. Since Smith wrote Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, we can pretty much rule out a second Beetlejuice movie.
I only included this one because I really enjoyed the first one- and hopefully one of you will stick to the very end of this post and go find out some more details. Unlike the other times when I say there is no information, I mean this literally for this case- no people are involved, there aren’t any news articles nor an appropriate title or date. (I’m not going to add it, but they’re making The Blair Witch Project 3)
Dan Aykroyd has basically stated that he’s making this movie so future, younger actors will get to be recast in this series- with a new premise of course. So while it’s being made because of commercial success, Sigourney Weaver stated that her son (in the movie) will grow up to become a Ghost Buster and take over Bill Murray’s spot (since he’s not starring in this one).
Little is known, but it is confirmed that Will Smith and Charlize Theron will return.
What I remember from the first movie is that Will Smith dies saving that mom and son duo who had previously saved him (but also caused him to die in the first place. . so they owe him). While the film will be made and a script is in development, the asterisk is for Smith, since he has stated that he would not like to do a sequel (or prequel?), but if the script is great, than he would do it.
The idea has been around for the past 3 years, Harrison Ford believes he is too old, but wouldn’t mind playing one last time, and the script “has been written and reedited” several times- all while George Lucas must ok it and be the overseer. Honestly, as much as I want another Indiana Jones, I very much doubt that it will bring unexpected hype- I just wish they would cover up the mistakes of the fourth one.
Just like the rest, there is no one involved and it has only been rumored to be true.
Quentin Tarantino returns to end (again, rumored) the Kill Bill series, and the “opening script” on IMDB states that it’s basically a looping revenge story in a looping revenge story. Nikki (the young girl raised) will seek revenge from her mom as The Bride takes revenge from . . Nikki’s mom.
While there is a good chance that the film will be made, there is little known about the film and the only two actors confirmed are Nicholas Cage and Jon Voight.
Just like Terminator 5, there is nothing to account for it, not even a person as the director, actor or even a script.
The film has no official script, cast or director, and the only person who is affiliated with it is James Cameron.
Again, nothing is known, but there will probably be a sequel due to the last film’s success.
Little is known about the project, and we can’t be sure that it will be made.
Vin Diesel returns as Xander Cage, where he is left for dead after an “accident.” He returns to get an assignment from Samuel L. Jackson- who plays Augustus Gibbons.
The odds of a movie happening are very low, as both Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson have stated it will not happen. The writers however have stated that although a movie sequel probably won’t happen, it could become a TV series.
