I’m sure many of you remember at some point seeing the classic Robin Williams movie, Ms. Doubtfire, where the actor poses as a nanny to spend time with his family after his wife divorces him. Basically Robin Williams just playing a woman. It is a comedy classic but came out a long time ago in 1993.
Well, it’s apparently going to receive a sequel 20 years later. That’s right, supposedly Fox is pushing forward with Ms. Doubtfire 2 with both Robin Williams and the original director, Chris Columbus, both on board. This is really interesting, but just seems super unnecessary because the original film is a classic that should just be left that way. Don’t try to fix what’s not broken, I believe, is the saying I’m looking for, but seriously.. why now? What makes Ms. Doubtfire so special that the studio feels the need to make this movie so long after the first was released?
This seems really ridiculous to me, and honestly, I have no interest in whatever they put out because I feel like any sequel they try to release in the near future will just be a junk comedy that gets dumped into the same category as the other generic bad comedies that are released each year. We’ll see if any real official information about the project is announced, but this is apparently happening…
Well, some news from Slashfilm has come out that We’re the Millers will be receiving a sequel that is beginning to come together. The movie was only made for $40 million and grossed $270 million worldwide, so the announcement for a sequel is no surprise.
Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, and Will Poulter are all expected to return along with director Rawson Marshall Thurber, but Adam Sztykiel (Due Date) will be penning the sequel.
An article has come out from Screenrant that can be found here about Karl Urban and the future of a possible sequel to the 2012 movie Dredd.
It doesn’t seem like much, but according to Urban, a second movie being made is relying completely on the fans to make it happen and prove that its cult status would bring a crowd to the theaters.
There was a comic sequel that recently released called Dredd: Underbelly that picks up where the film leaves off. I’m about to read it actually, and I’m really excited to see the story continue, so it would be awesome for another to be made. Alex Garland, who wrote the screenplay of the first, claims to have a trilogy thought up and already. Underbelly is not written by Garland, so this movie’s story would presumably be different.
I would love to see a Dredd sequel come out. I know this is just very little talks about it, but I guess there is a chance! I thought the movie was awesome and a fresh action movie with the large sci-fi influence. Did you enjoy Dredd? Would you like to see them create a sequel?
