Sony Spawns Several Superfluous Sequels
Jul 12, 2005

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) --
A quick game to see if you have what it takes to be a studio executive:

Which of the following films is most in need of a sequel?

1) Rowdy Herrington's 1989 honky-tonk landmark "Road House"

2) Danny Cannon's already textually unnecessary 1998 sequel "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer"

3) Paul Verhoven's 2000 invisible man saga "Hollow Man"

4) All of the above

5) None of the above

If you didn't answer "All of the above," there's no place for you at Sony Pictures Entertainment. The studio is moving forward with sequels to all three movies, though it remains unclear which of the follow-ups would be eligible for theatrical release and which go straight to DVD.

On an estimated production budget of just under $100 million, "Hollow Man," which starred Kevin Bacon, only made $73 million domestically, though it brought in an additional $118 million around the world. Douglas Wick's Red Wagon is producing the sequel, which reportedly focuses on a Seattle detective and a biologist who are doing battle with an invisible assassin. Joel Soisson wrote the script, which will be directed by Claudio Feah, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

August should also see the production of "Road House 2 -- Last Call," written by Miles Chapman. Scott Ziehl ("Cruel Intentions 3") is in talks to direct and an offer is out to Johnathon Schaech ("That Thing You Do!") to star.

Michael D. Weiss ("Octopus II: River of Fear") wrote the latest installment of "Last Summer," rumored to be dubbed "I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer." The film will revolve around an entirely new group of young, attractive characters who become involved with a killer who claims that he has knowledge of how they spent the summer months. Slashing will ensue starting in Utah in the late summer.

Hey, Kate - still no X-Files 2.

No doubt.

What a joke!

When I first heard about this, I thought it HAD to be a joke. I guess not. How bizarre. I liked the first Roadhouse okay (I can't bring myself to say anything bad about Patrick Swayze)...but a sequel? Really?

Hey, Kate - they just wrapped on the filming of a sequel to Save the Last Dance...without Julia Stiles as the lead actress...

Save the Last Dance 2: Stepping Up was shot in Toronto and the surrounding area and continues the story of Sara Johnson, the girl from a Chicago ghetto, who now attends Julliard to pursue her dream of becoming a professional ballerina. At the prestigious arts academy in New York, Sara must prove to herself and others that she is cut out for the competitive world of ballet.

We need to make a low budget film about Kate, a diehard X-Files fan who is frustrated by all of the sequels coming out of Hollywood and yet still no X-Files 2.

:idea:

Hey, Kate - thought you might enjoy this movie while you're waiting for the X-Files sequel. :D



The Cutting Edge: Going for the Gold

Available March 28th on DVD.

Christy Carlson Romano stars as the young and beautiful daughter of the original skaters from 'The Cutting Edge' who is reluctantly teamed up with a handsome but aimless inline skater to begin training for Olympics pairs figure skating. As they train for the Olympics, neither of them will admit their need for their professional relationship to work. Nor will they admit their growing feelings for each other.

Rated PG-13 for sexual situations, nudity and language.

Special Features include commentary by the cast and crew, a photo gallery, a movie montage with music by Christy Carlson Romano and more...
