sequels part 6We continue with Part 6 of our Look at Upcoming Movie Sequels. Check out Part 1 to see where we started.

Now You See Me: The Second Act

Filming has already started for this film that is due out in June of 2016. Jon M. Chu is the new director and Daniel Radcliffe has been added to the cast. Lionsgate is so confident in the success of this film that they’ve already started laying out the groundwork for a third movie to be released in 2018.

Ouija 2

The original low-budget movie was a hit and amassed of $80M in the box office, so of course a sequel was ordered for release in October 2016. Even if this one bombs, they’ve already come out way ahead of the game.

Oz the Great and Powerful 2

Based on the Frank L Baum series as a followup to the 2013 movie. It’s been two years and not even a rumbling, so whether this will ever happen is anyone’s guess.oz the great

Pacific Rim 2

Legendary Entertainment changed studios and the sequel will not be distributed by instead of Warner Brothers. Guillermo del Toro has been working on the script and will be once again at the helm. Lead actor Charlie Hunnam will also be returning to star in this film due to theaters August 4, 2017.

Paddington 2

There is no official release date on the sequel, but producer David Heyman has confirmed that they are working on plans for a sequel. Whether they will get the director or the voice actors back remains to be seen.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

This is well under way with its sequel already in development. Due to hit theaters in July 2017, Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow. There are several familiar faces returning including Orlando Bloom as Will Turner and Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa.

Pitch Perfect 3

With the success of Pitch Perfect 2 you knew they had to be looking at another in the series. Pitch Perfect 3 is coming to theaters July 21, 2017. We know that Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Elizabeth Banks will be returning.

Predator 4

In 2014 we were told that writer and director Shane Black was working on a script that will be sequel. Rumors have Emma Stone and Tyrone Magnus, but I think it’s too early to determine a cast.


The Princess Diaries 3

Rumors were circulating that Disney was making a third in this series, but those rumors have been cleanly squashed. When numerous stars have stated that there is nothing in the works. If there is something in the works then those involved will dance around the issue. There is no screenwriter, there is no storyline and there are definitely no actors on board for it.

Project XX

A teen comedy, the likes of which had not been seen in a generation. It was a very low-budget production that made a lot of money so Warner Bros is getting a sequel which is due out August 19, 2016. We don’t have a plot or casting, but I’m certain they will continue with the low-budget and manage to pull something out at the last-minute.

Prometheus 2

Coming to theaters March 2016, this film is set to be the prequel to Alien. It is supposed to pick up where Prometheus ended and lead up to where Alien starts. Ridley Scott is the producer this time around and director has not yet been chose.

The Purge 3

Apparently there have been two other movies in this series, but I have never heard of it. James DeMonaco is writing and directing again, and the movie is slated for a July 2016 release.

Puss In Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves

The highly popular Shrek spin-off is set for release in December 2018. Antonio Banderas will return to voice the lead character and Chris Miller will direct.puss in boots

Rambo: Last Blood

Apparently action heroes can’t die, or even fade away. Stallone is once again dusting off a character from his heyday and giving John Rambo another go. Stallone is making this a one man show by writing, directing and starring in it.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Milla Jovovich returns as Alice in the sixth Resident Evil film. Writer-Director Paul W.S. Anderson wrote this script which is apparently filming this summer in Australia. We can expect to see the movie in September 2016.

The Return of the Killer Klowns from Outer Space in 3D

After almost 30 years this cult classic makes a return and the clowns once again try to take over our planet. The original Chiodo Brothers will write produce and direct the film.

Riddick 4

Back in January 2014 Vin Diesel told us that there would be a fourth movie in the franchise, but with his busy schedule this seems to have taken a back seat as nothing more has come of it.riddick

Ride Along 2

This film has a release date of January 15, 2016 and is in post- production. Both Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are back as well as director Tim Story.
