All Upcoming Movie Sequels (2021 - 2025)

by dimantha_j | created - 06 Sep 2013 | updated - 4 months ago | Public

Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are.

With that in mind, here's a list of your favorite titles all preparing to get new installments. Some of them are deep into pre-production while others have barely gotten out of the pitch stages, but you'll be salivating at the thought of some of these sweet babies finally making their way to the screen.

Recent movies announced & added to the list : Joker 2, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, Tomb Raider 2, Hotel Transylvania 4, Legally Blonde 3.

14. Machete Kills in Space

Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi | Announced

Voz flees to outer space after attempting to start a nuclear war on Earth and there is only one man who the President can trust to take Voz down: Machete.

Director: Robert Rodriguez | Star: Danny Trejo

The second Machete movie, Machete Kills, is now inked in for release in September 2013. Danny Trejo is back in the title role, and Robert Rodriguez is directing. The pair are set to make one further Machete movie though, with the previously announced Machete Kills Again... In Space! set to complete the B-movie trilogy. Rodriguez won't get to that until he's done with his Sin City sequel though.

15. Real Steel 2

Action, Drama, Family | Announced

Plot is unknown.

Robot boxing movie Real Steel didn't make masses of money at the box office, but it did seem to make enough ($300m worldwide). As such, director Shawn Levy has been insistent from the start that he's planning to make a follow-up. Last we heard, work was underway on the script, although Levy is a busy man, so further updates have been thin on the ground. It still appears to be an active project though. And Hugh Jackman isn't averse to sequels.

16. Rush Hour 4

Action, Adventure, Comedy | Announced

The plot is unknown at this time.

Star: Chris Tucker

Both Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan are seemingly keen to reprise their roles in the Rush Hour franchise for a fourth instalment in the massively successful franchise. Chan and Tucket are reportedly developing the project, although we're not sure at the moment as to whether director Brett Ratner - who has made all three Rush Hours to date - will return as well. Ratner's immediately priority will be his Hercules movie, which he's making with The Rock for release in 2014.

17. Salt (TV Movie)

Action, Crime, Mystery | Announced

The continuing adventures of CIA agent Evelyn Salt.

After looking like it had fallen off Angelina Jolie's slate of projects, it looks as if Salt 2 is back up and running. After a long period of nothing being heard, a new screenwriter was hired back in December 2012, with Becky Johnston now rewriting Kurt Wimmer's original draft. Phillip Noyce is unlikely to direct again, but we expect Salt 2 to head into production by next year at the latest, if it is indeed going to happen.

18. Wanted 2

Action, Crime, Thriller | Announced

Plot is unknown.

Since we started doing this annual sequel round-ups many years ago, Wanted 2 has been a mainstay. It's a project we remain unconvinced will happen, and yet every few months that an update that seems to suggest it's actually live and kicking. The latest came in the autumn of 2012, where it was revealed that the film will definitely not feature - for understandable reasons - Angelina Jolie. Derek Haas and Michael Brandt were last heard to be working on a new draft for the script, and we wonder if D-day for Wanted 2 is coming shortly. Sooner or later, someone will have to make a call on it one way or the other.

19. Yogi Bear 2

Animation, Comedy, Family | Announced

Plot unknown

The Dukes Of Hazzard director Jay Chandrasekhar is the surprising choice to direct Warner Bros' Yogi Bear 2, which is pressing ahead at the studio. We can't raise much enthusiasm to tell you a great deal more about it, save that it's expected to hit cinemas next year. If it has a poster as memorable as the one to the first film though, we'll be sure to let you know.

20. Disenchanted (2022)

Animation, Adventure, Comedy | Post-production

Ten years after her happily ever after, Giselle questions her happiness, inadvertently turning the lives of those in the real world and Andalasia upside down in the process.

Director: Adam Shankman | Stars: Amy Adams, James Marsden, Yvette Nicole Brown, Patrick Dempsey

Just as we thought that a follow-up to the delightful Enchanted was entirely dead, James Marsden re-expressed his interest in the film just before Christmas. At one stage, a director was in place, with Anne Fletcher appointed to steer the project. But time is ticking, and Marsden and Amy Adams are getting no younger. You get the sense that if Enchanted 2 doesn’t get moving this year, then it’s not going to happen at all.

21. The Fighter 2

Drama | Announced

A follow-up to the 2010 film about boxer "Irish" Micky Ward.

Mark Wahlberg is planning to reprise the role of Micky Ward for a sequel to the Oscar-winning The Fighter. The bulk of the original film’s cast are likely to return, and the second film will focus on Ward’s fights with Arturo Gatti. David O Russell is set to produce, but it’s not clear yet whether he’ll resume directorial duties, too.

22. The Karate Kid 2

Action, Drama | Announced

After the sudden death of Dre's old Kung Fu Instructor, Mr. Han, young Kung Fu Champion, Dre Parker must learn The Dark Stepstones of how to become a good Instructor and teach his old fellow enemies a little more than respect.

The reboot of The Karate Kid generated both a surprisingly decent film, and really good box office numbers. A sequel was mentioned very quickly afterwards, but it’s only recently that it appears to have gained much traction.

Both Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith are set to return for The Karate Kid 2, with Harold Zwart expressing an interest in directing again. Zak Penn, whose most recent work has been on the impressive TV show Alphas, is penning the script.

23. Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

PG-13 | 130 min | Action, Drama

78 Metascore

After more than thirty years of service as one of the Navy's top aviators, Pete Mitchell is where he belongs, pushing the envelope as a courageous test pilot and dodging the advancement in rank that would ground him.

Director: Joseph Kosinski | Stars: Tom Cruise, Jennifer Connelly, Miles Teller, Val Kilmer

Votes: 276,603

At first, when talk of Top Gun 2 resurfaced, it was dismissed as something of a joke. After all, plans for a Top Gun follow-up had fallen apart more than once before.

Yet it appears that Top Gun 2 is deathly serious. Script work is being undertaken, Tom Cruise has spoken positively about the project, and director Tony Scott is keen to be involved. Blimey. What next? Cocktail 2: Electric Boogaloo?

24. Beverly Hills Cop 4

Action, Comedy, Crime | Pre-production

The plot is unknown.

Director: Mark Molloy | Star: Eddie Murphy

Eddie Murphy may once again earn his actor’s street cred back! The lovable foul mouthed actor took a detour in his career to become the not as lovable family film actor who relied mainly on fat and fart jokes aimed at subhuman midgets; children. Seems he is going back to the good stuff though with the announcement that Beverly Hills Cop 4 is indeed rolling forward!
