Bill & Ted 3
Probability : Excellent! How would a middle aged Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Keanu Reeves) be doing in the 2000s? I’d love to know how they could tie that idea into the existing mythology. Recently both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have recently gone public with their interest in making this movie a reality.
Kill Bill 3
Probability : Unlikely. Everything you need for another movie is set right up for you in Kill Bill Volume 1. The Bride (Uma Thurman) assures the young daughter of Vernita Green (Vivica A. Fox) that she will have her chance for revenge once she is older. Quentin Tarantino comes up with so many sequel ideas all the time (anyone remember The Vega Brothers?) that I doubt he’ll ever settle down and do Kill Bill 3. It’s really a shame though, it would be great to see The Bride reverse roles and become the villain.
Evil Dead 4
Probability : Low. At this point Bruce Campbell’s character Ash is so iconic how could you not want to follow his adventures in another film? Sure there’s been comic book and video game sequels over the years since 1993’s Army Of Darkness, but I want the real deal – Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell. Unfortunately at this point it seems like only a remake of the original Evil Dead is on the horizon.
Mad Max 4
Probability : Filming Soon, But Lame. A few years ago Mel Gibson and George Miller were all ready to give us the 4th Mad Max film, titled Fury Road, but due the troubles in the Middle East filming was indefinitely postponed. Flash forward a couple years and two Mel Gibson meltdowns later the film is again back on track for next year but with Thomas Hardy recast as Max. The rumor is the story will pick up shortly after Beyond Thunderdome. I would have loved to see what 25 years in the wastelands would have done to the original Max but I guess that’s never going to happen.
Taxi Driver 2
Probability : Unbelievably Likely. The New York City that Travis Bickle inhabited in 1976 no longer exists. Everything has been cleaned up and Disneyfied. How would he have handled that change? That question has been on my mind for years and it looks like Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Lars Von Trier are planning on giving us some answers. I just hope they really follow through and get this movie done.
