Movie Sequel News Including MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 5, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS 2 and GREMLINS 3


Let’s face it: the holidays are here and most people’s brains are already on vacation. Since it’s just too hard to come up with an original movie idea right now, a lot of talk has turned to potential sequels. Some franchises, like Gremlins and Mission: Impossible already have more than one movie in the books while others, such as Colombiana and Pineapple Express are open to sequels just because they can be. So we’ve ransacked the internets to find some updates on sequels you’ve been dying to see and others you never dreamed of being produced. Hit the jump to check them out.

First up comes the most plausible of the above-mentioned sequels, Mission: Impossible 5. While the current iteration, Mission:Impossible 4 – Ghost Protocol, is now in theaters , MovieHole reports that Paramount is eager to go ahead with plans for the next installment. Anthony Marcoly, head of Paramount Pictures International had this to say:

“We are absolutely thrilled with the MIGP start internationally. The filmmaking team has provided us with an exceptionally playing film that moviegoers around the world are embracing. With two and a half weeks of school holidays still to come, we are positioned extremely well as the must see event over the Christmas season.”
Now, the rumor is that Skydance wants to move forward with both M:I-5 and, speaking of sequels, Top Gun 2 and that Paramount is on board for both. While I was originally under the impression that any future Mission:Impossible films would feature Jeremy Renner taking over the franchise from Tom Cruise, apparently that’s no longer the case. As Simon Pegg put it:

“I think that might have been the plan earlier on, but as the film progressed and we enjoyed it so much I think the idea of Ethan Hunt retiring fell by the wayside. Tom suddenly remembered why he loved doing these films so much and suddenly thought ‘well maybe I do want to do more?’ It’d be nice to see them go into a mission a little better equipped and prepared and have some things that actually work.”
As for director Brad Bird, it’s possible that he may be back for the next installment as well, if we can take his following quote seriously:

“Hey man, what a good idea! cross pollinating the bad robot films!”, Bird says of bringing Leonard Nimoy’s ‘Paris’ back from the classic series. “I’ll bring that up with JJ. I’ll be sure to discuss it.”
Now, for other sequel news, MovieHole also reports that Warner Bros. has renewed the domain for Gremlins3.com which, if nothing else, supports the studios interest in keeping the franchise alive. As to whether it would be a true sequel or, more likely, a reboot (owing to the advances in motion picture technology, ie CGI vs puppets), that has yet to be determined. For those keeping score at home, Warner Bros. also renewed GreenLantern2.com and TheHangover3.com.

In “news you probably never considered,” MovieWeb unearthed the possibility of a sequel when talking to Colombiana star, Michael Vartan, who was quoted as follows [with spoilers]:

Spoiler:
“I was joking with our director Olivier Megaton that this movie sets itself up nicely for a sequel. I’m not sure that would ever happen. But at the end, there are a lot of loose ends that have not been tied. It would be interesting to…Look, I was pushing the whole time to reveal my character as a villain at the end. I don’t know why he didn’t kill her if that was his assignment. He had many opportunities to do so. Who knows? That’s what writers are for. It felt like they did set this up for a sequel. I have never been part of a movie that allowed me to reprise a character. That in itself would be awesome. But it definitely felt like, if they wanted to, there was a lot of creative freedom there. It wouldn’t feel forced. A lot of times, a movie is written as this one time thing. I makes $300 million at the box office, and suddenly, everyone is going, “Sequel, sequel!” Then, when they make that sequel, you can tell that everyone is just forcing stories that clearly weren’t developed, or wouldn’t naturally happened. I think this one has a chance at a good sequel. So, let’s start a campaign!”
Not sure if any of you out there were asking Santa for a Colombiana sequel, but well, there it is…maybe.

Finally, E!Online has some interesting news on a potential reunion for Seth Rogen and James Franco in a sequel to Pineapple Express. Rogen laughingly gave E! the following quote:

“I don’t think it’s so precious that I wouldn’t want to ruin it with a sequel. So yeah, I would be [into it]. We talk about it. We joke around about it.”
Maybe Pineapple Express 2 has a real chance, or maybe Rogen’s just blowing smoke.

Pineapple Express barely had enough in it to sustain a single movie, let alone two.

As for Gremlins, Dante has said repeatedly that he would do it, but only if it can be done without CGI, and WB doesn't want to spring for the budget that would entail.

That youtube from the dude in France shows how relevant the puppeteeering can be in making the film nowadays. WB should definitely take Dante up on it if he's able to make a good film.

Just mix CGI & puppets for Gremlins. Use puppets for upper body shots & heads but if they want a bunch of gremlins running down a hall totally in the shot, use cgi.

I'd be up for MI5. How about keep the same team this time. Each movie has a new team with Ethan being the constant.

I was pretty sure M:I 5 would happen that franchise prints money for Paramount. I'd rather have The Green Hornet 2 over Pineapple Express 2 if I had to chose. Neither really deserve sequels though.

No CGI + Phoebe Cates = Gremlins 3

What he said. I don't need PE2, and I definitely don't need to see a Gremlins 3 CGI shitfest.

I'm all for a new GREMLINS movie, provided it's dark like the original GREMLINS, and not some "let's parody everything we can think of" mash-up like GREMLINS 2. In other words, if they announce GREMLINS GO LAS VEGAS, I'll be staying home.

I beg to differ. GREMLINS is a classic B-horror movie (or at the least, a homage to them). GREMLINS 2 is Joe Dante just taking all these "cute" ideas he has and throwing them at us...it's like an SNL version of GREMLINS - a bunch of skits, but no cohesive storyline.

I'd see Mission: Impossible 5 and probably Gremlins 3 for sure. Pineapple Express 2...meh. The first one is an okay stoner movie to watch once but it's not something that needs a sequel.

I enjoy Gremlins 2 more just because there isn't much setup needed for the story.

Gremlins 2 was awesome! I never understood why they stopped making more. It could've been an awesome franchise. Did the sequel tank really bad at the box office?

I prefer the first movie. None of the crazy stuff that was in the second movie.

Daffy (mogwai pictured) was the reason why I loved the sequal. The scene where he's throwing food had me in tears laughing so hard.

Gremlins 2 is a great live action, feature length Looney Tunes. And that is exactly why it's my favorite.

I'm with you on that one. It is a live action Looney Tunes movie (circa 1946 or so).

Gremlins 1....2...I don't give a shit. Just give me a 3. For fucks sake it could be 3D. C'mon Warner, 3 and 3D. It's like fucking jelly to peanut butter. It's all set up.
