Brad takes a liking to her, and the boyfriend must try to win her back.

Release Date: TBA 2004

Deep Blue Sea 2
Killer sharks invade a flooded town.
Release Date: TBA

Dr. Seuss' The Cat in the Hat Comes Back
Before the original Cat in the Hat movie even hit theaters, word of this sequel began to spread. The original cast (including Mike Myers as the titular Cat) will return, and the story will follow Sally and her brother as they try to clean a stain on mother's white dress left by the Cat, who snuck into the house to eat some cake. This time, he brings a bunch of smaller felines with him.

In this remake of a remake (David Cronenberg's 1986 version followed the 1958 original), a scientist is working on a project called the TelePod that will enable people to teleport from one location to another. But when he tests the prototype, a fly enters the TelePod with him, and their DNA gets spliced together. As a result, the scientist slowly turns into a fly-like creature.
Release Date: TBA 2005/2006

Footloose
Movie fans will no doubt recall Kevin Bacon's star-making 1984 hit, the story of a city kid who moves to a conservative small town only to find that dancing, his favorite activity, is outlawed. This musical retelling of the story is from the producers of Chicago and features new versions of the hit songs from the original soundtrack.
Release Date: TBA 2005/2006

A flamboyantly gay secret agent (Brendan Fraser) has much success in the world of espionage, thanks to his great dancing and style.
Release Date: TBA 2005/2006

Gladiator 2
Ridley Scott will likely direct this sequel to Russell Crowe's blockbuster swords-and-sandals hit. But Gladiator 2 won't see Crowe back in action; his character didn't survive the first film. The story picks up with the next generation of characters, focusing on the political side of Roman history.
Release Date: TBA 2004/2005

Release Date: TBA 2006

Miami Vice
Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx slip in to pastel suits and boat shoes to assume the roles of Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs in this big-screen adaptation of the '80s TV smash hit. Director Michael Mann (who was a co-exec producer on the original series) has modernized the story a bit, focusing on one big drug lord and the way the Vice boys go about taking him down.
Release Date: July 28, 2006

Yes, Hollywood must be dead, as cash-in sequels and novelty ideas have only just been invented and have not been around for as long as movies have existed.

I enjoyed the first WarGames, the next one could be fun. I'll end up seeing most of those films once they appear on rental. I guess I'm part of the 'problem'.

How is this the death of Hollywood? Like DonnachaOne said, sequels are neither new nor should they be surprising at this point.

"Paper Man" doesn't sound too bad and i am interested in "Magneto".

I'm wondering why the world needs another "The Blob"...wasn't this already remade in the late 80's?

You forgot Revenge Of The Nerds. (2006)


Hollywood really is running out of ideas.

Every film now is either a sequel or a remake.

It wouldn't actually surpise me if they made a remake of "Weird Science"

I forgot Bruce Almighty 2 and Police Academy 8.

Half of those movies aren't even in production and will never see the light of day. The Gangsta MD thing confuses me. It says Gangsta, then the description says gangster. Obviously those are two different movies (gangsta = thug, hip hop, etc, gangster = Godfather, Goodfellas, etc.) The Gangsta thing sounds like a bad Wayans brothers movie or something.

Again: is this surprising? Or did you think every sequel so far was justified and based on a great film?

Is this actually true?! There's still a lot to be said about the Bush presidency, and perhaps even by Michael Moore, but that title really has to go. Really. What next? Fahrenheit (pi)*r^2 ?

Nice title. Rub a little more shit in Ray Bradbury's eye (sorry, I'm reading the book right now ).

And another version of The Fly? Even though I don't like Cronenberg's as much as the original, most people consider it a pretty good remake.
