10 Movie Sequels That Should Have Happened But Didn’t
As spoiled audiences of Hollywood sequels, we always dream of a follow-up after watching a great movie. Sometimes our dreams didn’t come true, because sequels, as they are so common these days, still take a lot to make. Here are 10 movie sequels we desperately want to see, but due to a variety of reasons, none of them ever happened.
10. Mrs Doubtfire
The Movie: Robin Williams dresses up as a Scottish nanny in order to get close to his kids after separating from his wife (Sally Field).
Why It Should Have Happened: The sequel’s plot had Mrs Doubtfire returning after Williams’ daughter goes off to college. Sounds fun.
Why It Didn’t Happen: A decade after Mrs Doubtfire became a runaway family hit, Fox decided they wanted a sequel. Bonnie Hunt was hired to write a script. Robin Williams signed on. Then he opted out, saying the script was too weak.
9. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
The Movie: David Lynch steers his cancelled TV series onto the cinema canvas.
Why It Should Have Happened: There’s nothing out there quite like Twin Peaks. Sure, some argue Lynch over-played his hand, but we’d still kill for more Peaks action.
Why It Didn’t Happen: Fire Walk With Me was part of a deal Lynch cut to create a trilogy of Twin Peaks films. Sadly, most of the show’s cast refused to sign on and so the film alienated both fans and non-fans with a confusing redo of the Laura Palmer mystery.
