In my mind, traveling to Italy and consumption of peaches has skyrocketed since Call Me By Your Name, the movie where Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet spent a summer frolicking around an Italian mansion while wet humping and demonstrating how dancing was not taught in the Hammer household. Director Luca Guadagnino indicated he was looking into doing a line of sequels. Even André Aciman, the author of the novel of the same name, said he was down with more movies and was even writing a sequel to book. But now Armie is all, “Nah.” I guess he’s still waiting to make another go at The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Divorce attorneys don’t pay themselves, so Angelina Jolie has once again paired her sainthood and goodwill work with a big-ass budget feature film to keep her children fed and pay those publicists, er, sources who blab bad shit about Brad Pitt to TMZ. The sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, has already finished shooting and Disney has announced when it’s coming out. Since the first one did so well, Maleficent 2 was scheduled for Memorial Day 2020 – but now that’s been moved up to Halloween season this year! I guess Angie needs that back-end deal to kick in sooner than later!
Eddie Murphy has announced that he’s in the process of bringing us a sequel to 1988’s Coming To America, and though I am somewhat intrigued, I’m also a bit annoyed. Why does Hollywood keep digging up old movies and try to love them back to life like their Celine Dion? Some things need to remain untouched like sleeping alligators and you auntie’s favorite bar-hopping wig. Unfortunately, that rule doesn’t seem to apply to films from the 80s so this sequel will more than likely happen.
My bad, you guys. I went to see A Quiet Place in the theater and now because of me they are making a sequel. My $11 must have pushed it over the edge of profitability. According to The Hollywood Reporter, beardy Jim from The Office shushing people has turned out to be a lot of people’s kink. The movie starring and directed by John Krasinski only cost $17 million dollars to make (with an assist from John’s wife Emily Blunt) and it’s still pulling in big numbers, “meaning it will be hugely profitable”. And of course, that’s all that really matters!
I was a full grown adult woman in 2000 so I’ve never seen Life-Size, the TV movie where Tyra Banks plays a Real Doll magically brought to life by Lindsay Lohan, and for that, I am truly, deeply sorry. How could I have missed it! Understandably, it’s become a bit of cult classic so it’s no surprise that Ty Ty has been trying to abracadabra a sequel to life since 2012! But for that kind of dark LiLo R’hllor shit to work, she knows she needs the help of The Red Priestess herself. And according to Entertainment Weekly, Ty Ty’s wish is Lilo’s command!
Jesus Christ portrayer Jim Caviezel has some very exciting news to share. He got interviewed by USA Today! But that’s not even the most exciting part. Jim says we’ve got to hold onto our pants because Mel Gibson is going to raise his career from the dead by making a sequel to 2004’s The Passion of The Christ. So no, apparently Mel has not been cancelled. The lucky bastard got his bullshit grandfathered in.
