A possible spin-off that focused on Jewel Valentine (Liv Tyler) was never considered due to the death of screenwriter Stan Seidel. If so, a "Jewel Valentine" spin-off film could reveal the femme fatale's origins and detail how Jewel met Utah and became his partner in crime and their other crimes they committed prior to McCool's.
