139 movie sequels currently in the works

18 June 2015 3:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Maleficent Sequel In The Works; Angelina Jolie Expected To Return

16 June 2015 7:51 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney is moving ahead with a sequel to its 2014 hit Maleficent, it was revealed last night, with news that Linda Woolverton has been tapped to pen the script for a follow-up. The current plan is for Angelina Jolie to reprise as the Sleeping Beauty character, and she’s being kept in the loop with regard to the project.

Setting up Maleficent as a franchise, the stand-alone nature of the film aside, makes financial sense for Disney. Though it was an expensive venture with a reported budget of $180 million, the pic grossed almost $760 million worldwide.

Back in 2014, Jolie teased reporters in China with the idea that she could return as the winged titular character, but plot details remain as elusive now as they did then. The first movie told the origin story for a notorious fairy tale villain, so it’s unclear what additional ground there is for Maleficent 2 to cover. »

'Maleficent' Sequel in the Works, But Will Angelina Jolie Return?

16 June 2015 4:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Disney hopes that one fairy tale sequel will come true.

Deadline reports that things are moving ahead for a follow-up to 2014's blockbuster "Maleficent," which starred Angelina Jolie as the titular enchantress. Disney has hired Linda Woolverton to write the script, and is "keeping Jolie in the loop and that the sequel will be written for her to reprise."

"Maleficent" was a massive success, raking in over $758 million at the box office, and it set off a flurry of live-action reboots of Disney's animated classics. "Cinderella" was a hit this spring, and the studio is working on "Beauty and the Beast" starring Emma Watson.

The biggest question mark, of course, is whether Jolie would reprise her role. As Deadline notes, Jolie isn't high on making sequels; she turned down follow-ups to "Salt" and "Wanted." And as she USA Today of making a possible sequel, "I just feel like we did »

Maleficent 2 pressing ahead at Disney

15 June 2015 10:31 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Angelina Jolie may well be back as Maleficent, as Disney gets to work on Maleficent 2...

One of the most successful transitions of animated film to live action movie that Disney has enjoyed thus far was last year's Maleficent. The movie, which told the backstory of Sleeping Beauty's villain, grossed over $750m at the worldwide box office, and proved to be one of 2014's biggest hits.

Around the time of the movie's release, there was chatter of a potential sequel. And now it seems as though Maleficent 2 is happening.

Deadline is reporting that the studio has hired Linda Woolverton, who penned the first movie, to put together a script for a Maleficent sequel. Angelina Jolie hasn't been confirmed to return, but it's hard to imagine a follow-up working without her. Robert Stromberg, who helmed the original, is not confirmed to return either.

But it's Jolie who's likely to be pivotal here. »

'Maleficent 2' in the Works, Angelina Jolie Expected to Return

15 June 2015 8:34 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I doubt anyone is surprised to hear Disney is moving forward with a sequel to the Angelina Jolie starrer Maleficent, which may have looked like a bit of a risk before its May 2014 release as it carried a budget of $180 million, but after $758+ million worldwide it became quite clear Disney's live action fairy tales were gold mines. Alice in Wonderland brought in $1+ billion in 2010 and Cinderella tallied $532+ million earlier this year on only a $95 million budget. In all likelihood I would expect Maleficent 2 to come in under that original $180 million price tag, though I bet Jolie doesn't come cheap and in order to make a Maleficent sequel you sorta want the star of the original film... rightc Linda Woolverton, who penned the original along with Alice in Wonderland as well as the upcoming Alice Through the Looking Glass, will write the sequel with the intention of keeping Jolie in the loop, »

Maleficent Sequel In the Works at Disney; Angelina Jolie Expected to Return

15 June 2015 4:34 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

In 2014, Maleficent earned Walt Disney Pictures more than more than $758 million worldwide and made the live-action reboot trend a viable option. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Disney is developing a sequel for the Angelina Jolie-led reimagining of Disney's 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty. Deadline reports that Maleficent screenwriter Linda Woolverton is returning to pen the sequel with an aim for Jolie to reprise her role. Woolverton is the only talent confirmed to return at this point, but the report notes that Jolie is "kept in the loop", though her involvement would require a new deal. [caption id="attachment_326851" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Walt Disney Pictures[/caption] The first film was an inversion of the Sleeping Beauty's classic narrative, following the villainess Maleficent, chronicling how she became the vindictive woman who cursed the princess Aurora, and painting her in a sympathetic light. The success of a sequel will no doubt depend on drawing Jolie back, »

Disney moving forward with a sequel to ‘Maleficent,’ Jolie possibly involved

15 June 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Cue the Disney has no original ideas music.

The Mouse House will dig into one of their most profitable live-action entries in awhile as Deadline reports that they are set to move forward with a sequel to Maleficent with star Angelina Jolie possibly returning.

Linda Woolverton will write the sequel. She wrote the first film, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, the upcoming Alice sequel, and the live-action Beauty and the Beast adaptation.

The first Maleficent took a lot to make with a estimated budget of $180 million, but grossed $760 million worldwide. It will be interested with Jolie involved if Disney would allow her to do the sequel, but she could have a lot on her plate with the actress also being courted by Marvel to direct Captain Marvel.

Deadline notes that Jolie has been apart of sequel talks with two of her other hits, Salt and Wanted, but ended up »

What's your favourite Angelina Jolie movie? Tomb Raider, Changeling, Hackers

4 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Angelina Jolie celebrates her 40th birthday today (June 4), and to mark the occasion here at Digital Spy we've rifled through our DVD collections to pick out our favourite Jolie films.

Remember her breakthrough with Hackers way back in the '90s? How about the ass-kicking turn in Tomb Raider or her soulful performance in A Mighty Heart? Read on to find out our Jolie favourites then have your say on her best big screen roles in the comments below...

Tomb Raider - Matt Hill (Deputy Editor)

With Hackers already spoken for, and Morgan Freeman's ridiculous 'loom of fate' ruining the otherwise rather decent Wanted, Jolie's turn as gaming icon Lara Croft looms largest over her career for me – largest in that it's still somehow seen as a rather huge mistake that she inexplicably recovered from. That reputation is one really worth reassessing, though. Sure, Jolie only narrowly missed out »

10 Movies That Were Almost Completely Unrecognisable

13 May 2015 7:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

The road from script to screen is often a tortured one. There will be numerous rewrites, actor changes, problems with the budget or location and a million other issues. Making any movie, even a terrible one, is punishing work.

So it’s no wonder that movies can morph into something almost unrecognisable from their original concept. A script written as a serious drama can turn into a wacky comedy, or an action vehicle written for Tom Cruise can be retooled for Angelina Jolie instead (check out Salt for more information).

Case in point: Edgar Wright had been planning Ant-Man for a decade, getting as far as pre-production and casting before “creative differences” with Marvel boiled up. His script was hastily rewritten and a new director brought on-board, and it seems little if any of Wright’s input will remain. Likewise The Hobbit was originally planned as two movies with Guillermo del Toro helming. »

Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? 10 stars of the hit '90s show then and now

30 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"Do you feel the power of the Gladiators? Can you face the challenge of the champions? Do you have the courage of the heroes?

"Do you have the will or the skill? Do you have the strength, the speed the heart to be a winner? Deep down in your Soul?"

These were the fundamental questions posed by ITV's original Gladiators, to both the audience and brave contenders who dared to take part. While this particular writer longed to be Lightning (her backflips were to die for), all the seemingly superhuman powerhouses were forces to reckon with - only occasionally tamed by strict referee John Anderson.

Originally hosted by John Fashanu and Ulrika Jonsson, Gladiators was what Saturday nights in the '90s were made of.

So as Saracen (aka Mike Lewis) returns to our small screens to tackle the Ninja Warrior UK obstacle course, we pick out some of the »

'Point Break' Remake First Pictures, Bracey and Ramirez are Utah and Bodhi

22 April 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Apparently the first look at the upcoming Point Break remake from director Ericson Core was shown during CinemaCon down in Las Vegas yesterday and with that comes the first looks at Luke Bracey and Edgar Ramirez in the film playing FBI agent Johnny Utah and extreme sports enthusiast and criminal Bodhi respectively. The duo are playing roles made popular by Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in Kathryn Bigelow's 1991 film, and for many this remake is completely unnecessary, but it's set to arrive on December 25 nonetheless. One week after Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, which is to say... we'll see how this turns out. This updated version will follow a similar premise as the first as a young FBI agent, Johnny Utah (Bracey), infiltrates a cunning team of thrill seeking elite athletes, led by the charismatic Bodhi (Ramirez). The athletes are suspected of carrying out a string »

First Look: Edgar Ramirez & Luke Bracey in 'Point Break' Remake

22 April 2015 7:23 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The remake nobody asked for is coming this Christmas with Point Break, a new approach to the 1991 action thriller of the same name that was directed by Kathryn Bigelow and starred Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves. The film has become an action classic, but that's not stopping Hollywood from trying to cash in on its legacy with a new version starring Edgar Ramirez (Deliver Us from Evil) and Luke Bracey (The November Man). Now the first photos have been unveiled after some footage was shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas yesterday, and at least now we know that Ramirez surfs and Bracey runs. That's exciting, right? Here's our first look at Ericson Core's remake of Point Break from Warner Bros. Pictures: Point Break is directed by Ericson Core (Invincible), who is also the director of photography on the film written by Kurt Wimmer (Salt, Street Kings, Total Recall). A young FBI agent, »
