I couldn't find any topics on this, but I thought I'd post it here.
I'll be open-minded about The Descent 2. I was even willing to be open-minded about Dog Soldiers: Fresh Meat before it got canned. Something tells me this will be another Grease 2, or maybe even another Matrix Reloaded.
I did hear somewhere that this will be a prequel, but I still don't feel enthused to go see it. I suppose I'll have to wait for a trailer, but the idea of this just makes me want to scream. The first movie felt so definitive and final that doing another would just be unnecessary, even in the case of a prequel.
And what is it with prequels? It's like they couldn't think of any good sequel ideas, so they decided to go back a step. I hear they're doing the same thing with The Host 2 and The Ring 3 (which kind of makes sense, since I'll most likely be a remake of Ringu 0: Birthday), and a few other movies that I cannot remember. I think I even heard somewhere that Dario Argento was toying with a Three Mothers prequel.
I'm not going to say let's march in the streets and get this turkey canned. I am saying that I'll wait for a trailer before making any judgments, but the idea just seems atrocious, like doing a prequel to Cemetery Man (no, one is not in development).
