Mean Girls 2?

08.21.2008

Paramount has launched a new direct-to-DVD company titled Paramount Famous that will look to launch sequels to popular (or perhaps not-so-popular) Paramount titles for DVD. Among the movies being sequelized under the new company are MEAN GIRLS, GREASE, BAD NEWS BEARS, THE NAKED GUN, ROAD TRIP and WITHOUT A PADDLE (?!). In true marketing speak, the practice of sequelizing properties with crappy films is described as "further enhancing our robust portfolio." Uh-huh. Apparently there is big business in bad DVD sequels as the many BRING IT ON movies have sold as many as 2 million copies each. What I find somewhat interesting is that half of the projects listed already have sequels. Normally I'd feel pretty confident saying that none of the original talent will return for these movies but I don't think I can say for sure that Lindsay Lohan wouldn't return for a MEAN GIRLS 2. The WITHOUT A PADDLE sequel has actually already wrapped filming and will hit shelves later this year. Can a STRANGE WILDERNESS sequel be far off? Have we learned nothing from the LOST BOYS 2 debacle?...

Extra Tidbit: FACE/OFF 2 anyone?

I like the idea of more direct-to-DVD sequels. Just the existence of sequels to some movies is entertainment enough because of how rediculous it is. It's not like it ruins the originals. I say bring them on. I might even netflix a few of 'em. Whatever.

Sequel

I heard that they were making a direct to DVD sequel for Face/Off. Nic Cages toupee would star and so would Bill Shatner's rug. It will be called Hair/Off!!!

Ehh...

Haha mutant_.

Face/Off please no. Woo is a awesome director (will keep Paycheck and Broken Arrow aside for now.), go watch 'Hostage' with Clive Owen..awesome. Im pretty sure i need to put my two cents on Hard Boiled.

After disney practically whored out all their movies for crappy direct-to-DVD sequels, i knew other studios couldn't be that far behind. Not that I care, since i pretty much ignore anything that is direct to dvd. I just wishes studios would not waste money on this crap, and instead finance a potentially good film.

Actually the Face/Off sequel thing is the sort of idea I'm surprised hasn't been done yet. It's the sort of premise that could lend itself easily to a bunch of crappy sequels, with inferior talent, who will subsequently show up again and again as the same character(s), to met out reverse justice and chaos.

A Face/Off sequel should be called Face/On or even better, Face/Off Again.

I thought they were going to do a REAL sequel to Mean Girls called Frienemies. Oh well. More crappy DVD sequels. And Strange Wilderness sucked hard.

Strange Wilderness was amazing. Let's preserve it's shiny rep by keeping it singular.

if LAcey Chabert returned to Mean HGirls 2 i may give it a watch, considering i think she is the hottest female alive! And i would watch most anything with her in it (never watched Party of Five, which is why i say Most)!

Nope!

Naked Gun 3 wasnt great. But it was still funny. I'd hate to see an awful part 4 be addded to the series.

Also Mean Girls was a really good flick. A sequel is unneeded. Especially a no budget sequel in the vein of American Pie 4-10.

Even if Linds returned I still wouldn't give 2 shits about it...Maybe if Tiny Fey came back to write but I doubt it'd happen...
