taken from wanderingpeanut.blogspot. I'm assuming these are genuine...

-

The Brazilian Job: the follow up to Paramountís US remake of The Italian Job is still on the cards, and itís got a 2009 release date marked. Jason Statham, Mos Def, Mark Wahlberg and Charlize Theron are attached, as is director F Gary Gray.

I, Robot 2: All we know on this one is that itís in the scripting stages still, with a potential 2010 release date planned in. No news on Mr Smith's involvement.

I Am Legend 2: Warnerís huge Christmas 2007 hit could also have a follow up, although itíd be interesting to see if Will Smith returned to it. A 2010 release date is also being mooted for this one.

Beverly Hills Cop 4:  If Die Hard can still do it at the box office, why canít Axel Foley? Er, because the third BHC movie was crap, and a flop. Still, itís not stopped development work going ahead on number four. No further news than that, though.

National Treasure 3: Not a huge surprise, but as the Nic Cage Indiana Jones knock off franchise has proved to be quite a juggernaut, youíll only have to wait until 2011 for the third film in the series.

Cars 2:  We spotted this on AintItCool Ė is Pixar really looking to make a sequel to its weakest film? Apparently soÖ

Toy Story 3:  This one, after lots of umming and ahhing, appears to be a goer. It wonít, as was speculated, be a straight-to-DVD affair, and Tom Hanks and Tim Allen are both expected back on voicing duties. Itíll be out in 2010.

Jeepers Creepers 3:  MGM is running the rule over a potential third instalment in the horror franchise, with director Victor Salva still attached. Hmmm.

Shrek 5: The fourth film was a no-brainer after the tepid third outing made so much cash. But a fifth instalment has also been confirmed. No wonder Shrek is the same colour as an American dollarÖ

Night at the Museum 2: Ben Stiller is returning for his most commercially successful role outside of the Meet the Parents franchise. We can wait. No news on the proposed Meet The Little Focker, though.

Crank 2: High Voltage: This is more like it. Crank is a guilty pleasure right up there with Snakes on a Plane, and itís coming back for more. Shooting starts next month, for a 2009 release, and Jason Statham returns as Chev Chelios. As he should. <<< OUT NOW

Transporter 3:  Statham again. Heís making this too, and itís in pre-production. Presumably, heíll go from Crank 2 straight onto this. <<< OUT NOW

Super Troopers 2: A sequel nobody asked for! Hurray! Expect it in 2010, as itís in the early writing stages still, we believe.

Silent Hill 2: Sony is looking at a follow up to the crap-but-popular video game adaptation. 2010 is the current slated release date.

The Descent 2:  We understand that Neil Marshall wonít be directed this one, which has the, er, working title of The De2cent. Heís attached as Executive Producer, with Jon Harris stepping behind the camera (he edited the first film, as well as the more recent Stardust).

The Grudge 3: Yup, itís in pre-production now, for release next year. Thatíll likely be the scariest thing about it.

Ice Age 3: 1st July 2009. Thatís the date youíll need to avoid if you want to miss the next Ice Age movie. Hopefully itíll be better than the second oneÖ

Ghost Rider 2: A surprise hit last year, Marvel is developing a follow-up to the Nic Cage comic book flick, and tentatively has 2009 marked for release. No director is thus far attached.

The Untouchables:  Capone Rising: A prequel to Brian De Palmaís cracking prohibition thriller of, er, twenty years ago. De Palma is back behind the camera, and the project is in the pre-production stages now.

The Thomas Crown Affair 2: Weird, this. Itís taken them ages to do a sequel, and then they draft in Paul Verhoeven to direct a follow-up to someone elseís film. Pierce Brosnan returns, and filming starts shortly.

The People Under The Stairs 2:  No sign of any Wes Craven involvement, though, and release may even be this year. Hmmm. We'd wager DVD will be its home.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor:  Er, thatís what theyíve called The Mummy 3, which is out on 1st August. Brendan Fraser and Jet Li star. <<< OUT NOW

Punisher: War Zone:  Ray Stevenson becomes the third person to play The Punisher on screen. Youíll be able to find out how he did on 12th September this year. <<< OUT NOW

Starship Troopers 3:  Marauder: Casper Van Diem is back, but itís still going straight to DVD, as the p**s-awful second film did. Itís due out later this year.

Pink Panther 2:  Oh dear. And Iím a Steve Martin fan. Itís out on 13th February 2009. <<< OUT NOW

Ace Ventura 3:  No Jim Carrey though, and no chance of it seeing the inside of a cinema. Head to Blockbuster later in the year if you want to catch it. <<< OUT NOW

War of the Worlds 2:  The Next Wave: Another straight to DVD sequel, but this oneís of note because itís directed by Soul Man/Hitcher star C Thomas Howell. Blimey.

Jurassic Park 4: Itís taken them ages to sort this out, but the latest is that Laura Dern is still attached, and that itíll be released in 2009. Donít hold your breath though, as shooting would need to start really very soon...

Toy Story 3- I'm actually looking forward to it.  I loved the first two.
Jeepers Creepers 3- I'm quite shocked, for various reasons.  The biggest is director Silva's past as a child molester.
Night at the Museum 2- I've heard this is in the works.  And it does appear the Fockers movie is too.
Super Troopers 2- First one was great.  I even have a friend nicknamed Chimpo due to it.  Reportedly, it'll be about the Troopers parents back in the '70s, played by the same actors.
Ace Ventura 3- I saw this on a rack at Best Buy.  I was shocked.  It's now called Ace Ventura Jr. and has a fat kid playing Ace's son.

I actually like the third one.  Granted it seemed almost a, dare I say,  family friendly parody of the first two but I had no problem turning my brain off to enjoy it.  I think thats all the Axl Foley I can take though.

Crank 2 just came out, and Transporter 3, Mummy: TotDE, and Punisher: Warzone are already on DVD, so they I doubt they qualify as "upcoming."   Twirling  Maybe when this blog was written, of course.

And the People Under the Stairs sequel has been in production for several years now.  People were talking about this early this decade when I was still a devout GameFAQs message board poster.  I'm sure they'll s**t-can it before long, as they did the Dog Soldiers sequel.

And replace Saw 5 with Saw 6.  Yeah, that's happening.

Transporter 3 has already played here, Pink Panther 2 is in cinemas now, and Night of the Museum 2 is almost out here too.  PP2 and Transporter 3 both got lukewarm reviews/responses from friends mistaken enough to watch it. 

Shame about War of the Worlds 2, that sounds like a great fizzer.

Man I can't wait for Crank 2. It looks so over the top in a good way. It's almost like they're daring haters to see it.

I heard there's a Crank 3 planned where he gets a nuclear powered pancreas that gets sabotoged by the Yakuza and causes hypoglycemia, so he spends the movie running around stealing candy from babies whilst rescuing Amy Smart again. Me= Drink Drink

Oh and I almost forgot: a radio station here is doing a great promo by unofficially screening Ace Ventura 3 as a big event.  This is a national broadcaster essentially trying to get as many B-grade Australian celebrities to attend their 'premiere' since they say that Ace Ventura 3, by going straight to dvd, is just ridiculous. 

Anything to point out the silliness of direct to video hollywood sequels of movies that have no semblence of their original [ace 3 incidentally stars Ace Ventura's 'kid'.]

What is it about Jim Carrey that spawns particularly reprehensible direct to video fodder.  Son of Mask, I'm looking at you here...

Something about Jim not wanting to portray the same character twice.  He only did Ace Ventura 2 cause he helped develop the character/script of the first and didn't, at that time, wanna see another person portraying a character he helped create. 

Also, another bad Jim Carrey 'sequel' is the god-awful Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry met Lloyd.  The first was hilarious, played to the hilt by Jim and Jeff Daniels.  The sequel: too horrible to comprehend why they made it to begin with.

Grudge 3 I saw advertised as coming to DVD from a Columbia House flyer.

Interestingly enough, I have heard of all of them.  A sequel I'm sure no one knows about is Mortal Kombat 3.  Anyways, I don't believe Jurassic Park 4 is going to come out now that Michael Crition has died.  Wouldn't be the same without him working on it.

Mortal Kombat 3 has been in limbo for at least five years, maybe longer.  At one point they were talking to Trish Stratus (former WWE women's wrestler) about playing the role of Sonya Blade.  Robin Shou is supposedly gonna play Liu Kang again (dude's gotta be what, 40 something at this point?)

Ghostbusters 3, just imagine all the things they could do with CGI now. has the potential to be great. (emphasis on 'potential')

BTW, turns out that original list was first posted on the net in June 2008. late?!?!....still a few things in there that have yet to see the light of day, however....
