Inspired by this thread, in which it appears that some of the worst sequel ideas in history are currently under production in Hollywood.
Think of the crappiest possible idea for a sequel you possibly can. The worse the better. Then we can sit back and refer to this thread and see if Hollywood actually picked one of our terrible ideas.
I’ll start the ball rolling:
Casablanca: Lazlo’s Rescue Lazlo’s plane gets shot down on the way to Lisbon, and Lazlo gets captured and Ilsa escapes. Ilsa recruits Rick and Louie and together they stage an elaborate rescue. I’m thinking love triangle, great F/X, maybe some nudity. And lots of laughs. Ashton Kucher as Rick, Brittney Murphy as Ilsa, somebody older as Lazlo…how about Vince Vaughn? And I love Chris Tucker as the wise-cracking Louie. This baby’s got Bruckheimer written all over it.
The Shawshank Recapturing Capt. Hadley makes a plea bargain and tracks down Red and Andy in Zihuataneco. They’re sent back to Shawshank, and together they stage an elaborate escape. We need a name that pops for the new Warden. How about Christopher Walken? Of course, we’d need Morgan and Tim back. I like PT Anderson as director here.
The Perfect Storm: Andrea Gail Returns We never really saw if they survived that big wave, did we? Same cast, they just have to make it home. Can we see if Michael Bay is available?
Maine: Rose’s New AdventureRose is once again trapped on a sinking ocean liner, and survives! This time we can kill off the Billy Zane character. I know we can get Kate Winslet, all we need is…what’s that? Whatever - how many people know the exact dates of sinking ships from 100 years ago? What? OK, so she joins the military. Work with me, people.
