The sequels are flying thick, fast and in even numbers it seems with lots of second and fourth chapters in the works for several franchises from the mid-90's and more recent flicks. Today comes rumours from around the airwaves on six such projects:
<strong>Jurassic Park IV</strong>
Looks like the interview with David Boreanaz the other day which mentioned he was in a big movie with 'Four' in it isn't "Fantastic Four" or Indy IV but the next "Jurassic Park". Casting is about to happen on the project and people who've put feelers out have apparently been told Boreanaz will have the lead role.
<strong>American Pie 4</strong> The sequel which revolves around Stifler's snotty brother is moving far faster than expected. Already auditions are underway if not complete for assorted roles like the assorted girls he tries to impress at Band Camp. Shooting takes place in Vancouver. A report up at <a href="http://www.cinescape.com/0/editorial.asp?aff_id=0&this_cat=Movies&action=page&type_id=&cat_id=270338&obj_id=42370" target="_blank">Cinescape</a> indicates the only other character to return is Finch in a cameo.
Harold & Kumar Go To Amsterdam In an interview with Moviehole, Director Danny Leiner confirmed the "White Castle" sequel is in the writing stages right now and they're considering getting Neil Parick Harris back - "I hope he does it, we’re going to write him into it. I think it would be great". The man also confirmed there will NOT be a "Dude Where's My Car" sequel at all due to the prohibitive expense of getting Kutcher & Scott together again.
Unbreakable 2 Countingdown reports that M.Night Shyamalan told Howard Stern that he didn't think the public were exactly screaming out for a follow-up, but that doesn't mean he isn't keen on doing one. Shyamalan also expressed his interested in working with star Bruce Willis again, meaning it's more than likely than Bruno will be back for seconds if it does happen.
<strong>True Lies 2</strong>
Talking on WLW 700AM radio, Tom Arnold spoke about a potential sequel to the 1994 James Cameron action comedy - "It's a matter of finding the right time, right place, and right story - something not so violent. Jim Cameron's going to be invovled but he's too busy preparing another movie for arnold - something real big - so he might only have a supervisory (?) role. Definitely happening soon".
<strong>Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo</strong>
Eddie Griffin spoke with Blackfilm about his role in the comedy sequel. HIs character this time around "is a pimp of he-bitches. He has cornered the market in male prostitution". Griffin confirmed that "Me, Rob and Oded Fehr are the only ones returning from the first film". What should we expect this time around? "Since we didn't do it at Disney, we are going all out. You should expect humor at its purest form and not watered down and PG-13 so the whole family can come. With this film, you can expect to get a gut laugh".
Thanks to 'Christine', 'Martin' .
