Showgirls Sequel???

Oct. 5, 2009by:

Lizzy Berkley in SHOWGIRLS

If you ever, EVER wondered in what kind of universe a sequel to SHOWGIRLS would happen, well wonder no longer: you're living in it. Scared shitless aren't ya? Get a diaper, 'cause it won't get better.

According to German publication/site Extratipp, writer/director Marc Vorlander has been developing a follow-up called SHOWGIRLS: STORY OF HOPE, one centered on the original's minor character Hope played then -and now- by model/actress Rena Riffel. Actress being a loosely used term.

The project, says the trade, is so "good" it attracted two Hollywood producers and a $25M budget for production in Frankfurt. Wish I could tell you who those producers are and what kind of f*cked-up weed they smoke, but my German goes as far as Google Translation's... The darn thing did manage to get me a "decent" plotline decrypted though: "It's about stripper who died from a dose of contaminated cocaine. Her brother comes to Frankfurt to find the responsible and revenge." Biting my nails already.

Obviously I can't say I'm a fan of the original, not even in a love-how-its-bad way, so I'd call on those who are to weigh in. What do you guys think?

Thanks to "Mario" for the heads-up.

Showgirls is a masterpiece of awful cinema. I have spoken to Rena quite a bit this year and she has hinted at this, not sure if she did any writing for it or not. She's actually a really lovely person.

The original was total garbage, not even all the boobies & ass could save that ship wreck. A sequel.....I guess that cannot do any worse than the first one, or can they??????

I enjoy the original but this is not going to be as entertaining. It's obvious they're only doing this because of how notorious the first one is.

How can anyone be against this? It's not like you watch the first one for the story or the acting.

OH NO IT WON'T BE AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL!!!

Is there another writer's strike going on that I don't know about?

I had a nightmare about this recently. Maybe it was a prophecy about the End of Days....

Whose career did it hurt most?

Whose career did it hurt most? How about all those poor teenage boy movie projectionists furiously abusing themselves in small town theaters. They never got to be manager after that.

It wasn't a great film but after watching saved by the bell for many years, that pool scene kept me warm on many a night.

Of course, then my father found it and took it to throw away and we kept finding it in his room years after that, hmmm......

I'm not really game for a sequel to Showgirls, but I guess it could work.
With that said, I really enjoyed the
heck out of Showgirls, and no, I don't think it was so bad it's good, I really
really liked it, but then I am easily pleased.
