Even More Sequels and Remakes
Posted on August 19, 2011 at 3:55 pm
2011 has more sequels and remakes than any year in movie history but it looks like the record will be broken soon. This year’s Smurf and Pirates of the Caribbean movies already have sequels underway. Mike Meyers has announced that he will make a fourth Austin Powers film, ten years after “Goldmember.” And now Ridley Scott has agreed to make a sequel (or possibly a prequel) to his own masterwork, “Blade Runner.” There’s a remake of “Wargames” in the works, too. On the other hand, tentative plans for sequels to “Sex and the City,” “I am Number Four,” and “Anchorman” are shelved. For now.
