Lots of sequel news


This comes from Moviehole...

The Hangover 2 Those boisterous blokes at the center of the 2009 hit might be headed to Thailand next time 'round, according to CHUD. Funnily enough, writer/director Todd Phillips had written a sequel to "Old School" which would've also taken place in Thailand. I guess since that's seemingly not happening anymore (Will Ferrell wasn't keen), Phillips is free to shift both the locale, and some of the gags no doubt, over to "The Hangover 2". Meantime, Heather 'Rollergirl' Graham tells E! she's got some ideas for the sequel (likely too late love, sounds like Phillips has his script complete). "I think Stu should get her pregnant, and that she should do a pregnant strip dance. I know it sounds so wrong, but it sounds so right. That'd be really cool. Seriously, I wish. We need to get someone to write that script."

Sherlock Holmes 2 A few months back word got around that Brad Pitt might've been approached to play the villainous Moriarty in Guy Ritchie's "Sherlock Holmes". The plan was, according to plausible-enough rumour mongers, for Pitt to make a surprise cameo at the end of the first film, setting up his appearance in the inevitable sequel. The Hollywood Reporter later confirmed the rumours - well, the bit about Pitt doing the sequel, anyway; they never confirmed the 'special appearance' in part 1 whisper. Unfortunately, there's no Pitt cameo in "Holmes" - though Moriaty does appear, kinda, in the pic - but that doesn't mean there won't be a Pitt/Ritchie reunion (they did "Snatch" together) later on. Ritchie, asked by MTV whether or not Pitt has been contacted about playing the role, said : "I can't tell you that. Maybe Moriarty will surface again .... I'm not allowed to say anything." So, do we consider that confirmation that Pitt's onboard the sequel!?

Hoodwinked 2 Won't be ready for release in January, as planned. Boo-Hoo... Not. TWC's David Glasser tells The Los Angeles Times that the pic, originally set to premiere the weekend of Jan. 15, now will debut in February at the earliest. Why? the sequel to the fairytale farce just isn't ready. Hmm... sounds promising!

Wild Hogs 2 Since his appointment as the CEO of Disney, Rick Ross has canned a McG film ("Captain Nemo : 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"), a shifty-sounding Robin Williams/Anna Faris laffer ("Wedding Banned") and now, the sequel to "Wild Hogs" (Starting to like this guy already!). Despite having re-recruited John Travolta, William H.Macy, Tim Allen, and Martin Lawrence for the follow-up to the 2004 hit, Ross seemingly felt like he'd, again, be doing us all a favour if he aborted it. Merry Christmas back at ya, Sir! (MTV)
