15 Movies that we think need sequels!

With the recent news that we will be getting ANCHORMAN 2, a long desired sequel, movie fans will finally get a follow up film they actually want to see. With the glut of unnecessary and just plain bad sequels out there, here is a list of movies that actually deserve a second round on the big screen. Feel free to add your own desired sequel ideas in the talk back below.

#15 True Lies

Since James Cameron has publicly stated that AVATAR will be his movie-making future, it looks incredibly doubtful that we will ever see the sequel to TRUE LIES. Damn Arnold and his gubernatorial duties! I was hoping to see the future adventures of Harry Tasker and a pole-dancing Jamie Lee Curtis. Every single one of you reading this better not lie and admit that Jamie Lee's dance scene was hot as hell. Hopefully Cameron will give his blessing for a competent filmmaker to continue the story, maybe having Arnold take over the eye-patched Charlton Heston role. One can dream.

#14 Willow

While Willow was not a box office success, it was still the first high quality fantasy epic that didn't have LORD or RINGS in the title. This is the movie that gives me hope that Ron Howard could handle the fantasy aspects of THE DARK TOWER series. A sequel should have been easy! George Lucas even went ahead and wrote two follow up novels so that a screenwriter's job would be simple! Come on, give us more Madmartigan!

#13 Ghostbusters

This one is a no-brainer. GHOSTBUSTERS 3 has been in development hell for years. The fact that Bill Murray won't be in it pretty much means it won't happen (and shouldn't without him). But, we can hope that Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd can put together a good enough script to finally get the team back on the big screen. Cartoons and video games are just not enough when it comes to GHOSTBUSTERS!

#12 The Professional

Luc Besson and Natalie Portman have discussed making a sequel to THE PROFESSIONAL featuring Portman's Mathilda as an adult. However, disputes between Besson and his prior studio Gaumont Film Company have pretty much nixed this project. But, couldn't you just imagine Natalie playing a badass hitwoman? I would pay to see that.

#11 Gremlins

Much like GHOSTBUSTERS, we got two GREMLINS movies. One was obviously better than the other and we have spent decades waiting for another. Director Joe Dante has not done that much in recent years and would be welcome back behind the camera. But even if you rebooted the story while keeping Gizmo as the central character (no CGI, please!), this would be an awesome story to see back in theaters.

#10 Big Trouble in Little China

If Harrison Ford was able to don the fedora as INDIANA JONES again, there is no reason why Kurt Russell cannot don the wife-beater and portray Jack Burton again. The movie doesn't even have to be focused on Chinese mythology, just drop Burton into a different scenario. There are countless ways you can use the same character and his smarmy, sarcastic demeanor in another funny adventure movie.

#9 Grosse Pointe Blank

GROSSE POINTE BLANK is hands down the best John Cusack movie of the nineties after BEING JOHN MALKOVICH. The movie took all of the classic Cusack roles of the eighties and added the black comedy twist of making him a hitman. The supporting cast of Dan Aykroyd, Hank Azaria, and Jeremy Piven truly made this movie feel like a semi-sequel to a Cusack high school movie. Minnie Driver was cute as hell and it would be nice to see the same cast return for a look at where they are at another reunion (25 years, maybe)?

#8 Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

When I saw WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? in the theater, my brain nearly exploded with how awesome it was. My seven year old brain almost shut down at the fact that cartoons and humans were existing in the same plane, not to mention the fact it was Disney and Looney Tunes characters together. I also wondered why I was getting funny feelings whenever Jessica Rabbit was on screen. Since 1988 there have been rumblings of a sequel and yet we have not seen a single real hope at Roger Rabbit returning to theaters. With movies like ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, THE SMURFS, and HOP combining CGI and humans, why could they not create a movie where the 2D cartoons must try to survive in a Hollywood where their computer generated counterparts are getting all the work? Make a new Roger Rabbit, now!

#7 District 9

I am sure many of you are going to cry foul on this one seeing as DISTRICT 9 stands very well on it's own. But, wouldn't you like to know if Christopher returns to rescue his race? While director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley have both said a sequel/prequel will happen, their schedules are so full of upcoming projects that this sequel may just fade into oblivion.

#6 The Breakfast Club

Another movie that will probably make most people pissed for being included on this list, I still think a sequel to THE BREAKFAST CLUB would be a great idea. Here is how I envision it: the members of the club are pulled back together when their high school aged children are caught pulling a senior prank. This forces the parents back together to revisit the friendships they forged during that detention session almost thirty years before. Come on, wouldn't it be awesome to see Anthony Michael Hall as a rich, smarmy a-hole and Judd Nelson as a failed alcoholic in a role reversal from the original? There are countless ways that this would work as well as countless where it would crash and burn. The fact that John Hughes is no longer with us is reason to not mess with a classic, but I am just saying it would be a pretty cool blast from the past.

#5 The Goonies

If you don't love THE GOONIES, you are dead to me. This is the ultimate kids movie even though it is not appropriate for all kids. I am counting down the days until my sons are old enough to watch this movie so that I can watch the look of suspense and wonder on their faces seeing kids their age find a pirate ship, booby traps, and treasure. A sequel to THE GOONIES has been bandied about for years with no success. Most of the cast has moved on to Hollywood success (Sean Astin, Josh Brolin) while others hunger for a chance at more big screen success (ahem, Corey Feldman). At this point, a reboot is more likely but I still hold out hope of a sequel with the original cast returning as parents to the new Goonies.

#4 The Evil Dead

So they are filming the reboot in New Zealand as we speak, but that is not and will never be THE EVIL DEAD 4. No one is Ash except for Bruce Campbell. Having had the honor of meeting The Chin in person, I can tell you there is no difference between the man and the character. Sam Raimi proved he still has the chops for horror when he directed DRAG ME TO HELL. The window is closing as both director and star are getting up there in age, so hoping for a Campbell cameo in the remake may be the closest we ever get to seeing the boomstick on the big screen again.

#3 Trainspotting

Another case of already having the plot ready to go, author Irvine Welsh wrote the sequel to his novel TRAINSPOTTING, entitled PORNO, a few years ago. Rumors had many cast members and director Danny Boyle contemplating getting the band back together but no progress has been made. Ewan MacGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, and Robert Carlyle are all committed to movie and television projects so this may be another case of everyone being too old to make a proper follow-up. At least we have the novel.

#2 Unbreakable

My favorite M. Night Shyamalan movie is the one that was pretty much on track for a sequel when the director shit the bed creatively. Shyamalan had made the best superhero movie before the genre was revitalized by SPIDER-MAN a few years later. The director has already stated the planned villain he created for the sequel has been incorporated into a different film he is writing, but that does not mean UNBREAKABLE 2 cannot still be made. Both Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson have shown they would be up for it still. I want to see what prison will do to Mr. Glass and whether Willis' character continues as a superhero after the credits rolled.

#1 The Incredibles

I love this movie. I absolutely love it. I mean, this was essentially WATCHMEN for kids. This is the most perfectly executed origin movie out there and is perfectly setup for sequels galore. I know that we would not want to dilute the quality with a weak sequel, but it has been eight years since it was released (CARS and CARS 2 were only released five years apart). I would kill to see what happens when the superheroes return to this world. The best thing about the prospects of a sequel are the fact that it is a cartoon, so you don't have to worry about the cast getting old! THE INCREDIBLES is too good of a property for Disney to not follow up. I think this is the most likely one on this list to actually happen, let's just hope it happens sooner rather than later!

Hell...NO!

I love this movie to bits and can't count the number of times I've watched it!! It was nicely done and wouldn't call the ending ambigoius or cliffhanging but more of Open-Ended as in, draw your own conclusion and its so rare for a movie to do that nowadays.

But if they do come up with a sequel I'd like to see another story that will make little or loose references to the first movie or Wikus' legacy.

The pole dancing scene was more funny than sexy since she wasn't very good at it. That said, I will begrudgingly admit, that while she has a terrible face, Jaime Lee has a very fine body. And yes, this is definitely a sequel I would LOVE to see happen. Please, James. Forget about your Avatar crap and do THIS instead! Please, pretty please with sugar on top? :(

I could see a reboot turning into something like the Footloose reboot. Yes I know the original Footloose was about dancing but you know how they like to put a fn' "twist" on everything these days.

I was under the impression that a sequel was going to happen, even without Murray.

This is the kind of sequels that can survive without it's original cast because the concept is strong enough. The problem is that Aykroyd, Ramis and Reitman haven't done anything good in a while and they don't look like they can pull it off.

Gremlins is my #1 favorite movie of ALL TIME. And as a HUGE fan (of both) I wouldn't, at this point, even mind a remake even though I highly doubt it would be able to capture the magic of the first one.
But I'd definitely prefer a sequel with the original cast back.
Either option, no CGI. AT ALL.

I've never really wanted to see a follow-up. I'm still a little iffy on the Director's Cut which shows a much more morally ambiguous treatment of Mathilda. I always liked that Leon was sort of trying to shield her from it all. Plus, I'm not 100% sure I could take Natalie Portman seriously as an assassin.

it's funny how most of these have "sequels in the works" or sequels that were planned and never happened.

No.

I don't think that Goonies should have a direct sequel like that. I would much prefer a separate film trying to make the same kind of film. Not a reboot but a spiritual successor.

It's been awhile since I read the book, but I'm fairly certain it was only supposed to be 10 years later. You're telling me that in 16 years the actors don't yet look 10 years older? I'd have to disagree. I don't think the story was as good as trainspotting but I'd still love to see it.

I'd love to see Kurt Russel back at something like this. BTILC is one of my favorites. But it is a weird ass movie that would be hard to duplicate. Cult Classics like this almost happen on accident and I am not sure if Carpenter was high or what cause it is like a strange brew of nonsense that all ends up blowing up into awesomeness. I love me some Kurt Russell. Kurt and Carpentar should be forced to make more movies together.

Update with Bill Murray

Bill Murray was on Letterman just last night and he got the GB3 question thrown at him. He does his usual hem hawing about it, but just says that he's dragging his feet about it, and that it needs to be a really funny script. Here's the link: [link]

CGI vs. 2D

Wow, I really like that concept of all the CGI characters getting all the work. There could even be a controversy of where a Toon could go through a computer and become CGI, so you have those that want to change and those that don't. This would also provide a movie with special effects that I'm not aware of that have been done, Live Action mixed with 2D animation mixed with CGI all at once in the same scene.

Breakfast Club 2; Electric Boogaloo??

Are you friggin' serious? The Breakfast Club? Why!!?? What possible good would come from that? When has a sequel to a dramatic comedy ever been a good idea? Annie Hall 2; Kvetch Harder? Steel Magnolias 2; Southern Discomfort? It ended with John Bender's fist raised in triumph. THE END. If any Hughes movie might lend itself to a sequel it was Ferris Bueller.

Ehhhh...

Yes on the Incredibles and Evil Dead. Maybe on Roger Rabbit and the Professional.

The rest is of an era and best left unmolested.

Instead get me sequels to Source Code, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Fighter, Pineapple Express, and Serenity.

I say they need to revisit the 80s, specially since we are lacking the bad-ass action movies like Cobra or Commando. Even action comedies like Tango & Cash deserve a second chance for a comeback

I'm on board if..and only if another director is attached to it. Shyamalan proved with Devil that he is effective in a Writer / Producing role, which at this point in his career he seems to be better suited for. I say continue the storyline with a fresh look.

Wasn't it called STAR WARS or something... Or was it just a SF reboot... Or maybe was it the other way around... Can't tell any more !!

Huge fan of Big Trouble in Little China, but it's a stand alone movie. In his own words, Carpenter is too lazy to write scripts these days (see The Ward) which means handing over the reigns to another....which in turn means just leave it alone so the original isn't tarnished.

This could be good...

With today's standards they could make a pretty dark hard-R Gremlins movie that I'd be first in line to see...but as you said, NO CGI!!!!

Let's start with the extended cut, including the infamous scene Cameron describes as the better acting Arnold ever did (in a movie, Politics not included).

I dunno. I'd wanna see Eddie in there too. I feel like they kinda waited too long to really capitalize on it. The Disney and Looney Tunes characters aren't what they were even in the '80s. And there's just so many ways it could go wrong.

Some of these I agree with

...but this sounds like an example of trilogy addiction. Some of the best stories leave this ambiguous or unanswered. Not everything needs to be set in stone with sequels. In fact - there's a strong argument that can be made for movies standing up to more rewatching, when they don't answer all their questions.

but then he decided he never wanted to work with Judd Nelson again.

Too old? Exactly the opposite.

Boyle said a few years ago (I forget where) that he definitely had plans to do Porno, just as soon as the guys, and I'm paraphrasing here, "are up there in age".

John Carpenter hasnt really been himself since Vampire$ came out (actually since Ghosts of Mars) but what we REALLY need is more Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai: World Crime League

Sorry lelekPL... War Inc was not a sequel. Disney didn't want to make a sequel, so when Cusack wrote War Inc, it was merely 'inspired by the feel' of GPB. War Inc is a sequel to GPB as much as Made is a sequel to Swingers.

It's crazy how awesome of a character Ash is and he comes from a movie a kind of hated, now Evil Dead 2 is much better and I love Army of Darkness so I'd love to see him in another movie, however I had to red this for you saying Drag Me to Hell is good, I hated that movie so much I was actually angry that I watched it.... and that has never happened to me before and hasn't happened since.

I only wanted 2 of them. The others were a definite no and a who cares.
Incredibles is #1 though and I also wouldn't mind seeing a Who Framed Roger Rabbit sequel.

Not me. Brad Bird has yet to create a story for The Incredibles sequel that satisfies him, and Pixar won't make the movie without him. Cars 2 was developed by John Lassiter, who had an idea immediately after the original Cars, to do a spy theme. Therefore, Cars 2 was made, even though it was poorly received, because the creative force of Pixar, Lassiter, had a story, and The Incredibles 2 was not, because the creative mind on that has been working on other projects. Simple.

I disagree: I think The Incredibles is one of the few Pixar films that "belongs" to the writer and director. Sure, it is a Pixar property, but Brad Bird is the brain of the project. He came from outside of Pixar and brought this idea with him, so this is "his baby." Pixar is respecting this fact and consider it Brad Bird's property, so the lack of a sequel is on Brad, not Pixar.

I remember watching this with my dad as a kid on VHS. When the stripping scene came on, he would turn it off and fast forward saying "when I'm older I can watch that part". Since it was vhs, and he had it off while fast-forwarding, he had no idea when to turn it back on, so he randomly turned it back on thinking it was past the scene. It wasn't....my childhood changed from that point on.
