Two that I read about were ET 2 and Grease 3. If I recall, the rumored sequel to ET was going to have him return and another version I remember reading was they were going to have a sequel with the kids grown and him coming back. Obviously no ET 2 ever happened. The Grease 3 if I recall got to the greenlight stage and Didi Conn (Frenchy)was one of the producers. The plot was about the children of the original cast. The script was reworked and became High School Musical if I recall.

The original film version isn't a horrible movie if you separate it from the book...but I wouldn't mind seeing a more faithful adaptation.

Flowers in the Attic was the only one from the Dollanganger series to get a movie adaptation.

Kristy Swanson mentioned that she was contacted to do the sequel Petals on the Wind but it never reached production.

I'm glad Robert Stigwood never made Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 2 - after forcing the Bee Gees to butcher Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road, he still had the White Album to make another Beatles rock opera from!

The original Sgt. Pepper movie was a disaster, of course. It's worth seeing, though, if your idea of great entertainment is seeing Alice Cooper dunk his face in a cream pie - twice!

A fifth installment of the ALIEN franchise was in talks during the 2000s.

James Cameron was working on a prequel that would explore the origins of the creatures, but this was scrapped when FOX was interested in doing ALIEN vs. Predator.



Then around May 2009 Ridley Scott announced that the ALIEN franchise was going to be rebooted.

The plan ultimately didn't happen and the script was reworked into a new, unrelated film Prometheus which is due for June 2012.

Aileen Quinn was originally under contract to appear in a bunch of Annie movies but when the first movie did less than was expected those plans fell through. It pretty much destroyed her career because by the time she was free from the contract she was pretty much forgotten

Richard O'Brien has claimed he's writing a sequel to Rocky Horror Picture Show ever since Shock Treatment... that's been over 25 years and still hasn't happened...

Labyrinth got a sort-of sequel in comics, so I hear, officially liscensed by Jim Henson productions. Doesn't sound like David Bowie's gonna be in any adaption though.

And Kevin Costner was working on a sequel to The Bodyguard which he planned to make with Princess Diana. The script was in the early development stages when she died so the story was never completed.

An Annie II either made it to Broadway or was on its way to Brodway but it was a flop.

There was an Annie II movie made, but it was several years later and didn't have Aileen Quinn or anyone from the original movie.

There should've been a Mystery Men 2 or a Back to the Future Part 4

Was this that tv-movie made in 1999 with Kathy Bates and Victor Garber, or is this something else?

Author Roald Dahl was very displeased with David Seltzer's (uncredited) rewrite of the script for Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.

David Seltzer was brought on board after Dahl didn't meet some required deadlines and he changed many things around. Dahl felt that the rewrites focused too much on the Willy Wonka character and not enough on Charlie, and that it had sweetened his story's dark tone.

Roald Dahl then disowned the film, refused to allow the movie to be remade again in his lifetime, and did not sell the film rights for the sequel novel Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator.





In 2005, Roald Dahl's estate allowed Tim Burton to remake the film.

Tim Burton has stated that he has no plans on making a sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, however the ending of his movie included some parts from The Great Glass Elevator.

I always wondered why the 1971 movie was so different from the book - for example, Mr. Bucket was alive in the book but dead in the 1971 movie.

I read "Charlie and the Chocloate Factory" when I was seven. I never read "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator." I ought to - even though I'm now 46!

Not a remake, this was an actual sequel. It was called Annie: A Royal Adventure with Ashley Johnson. Personally, I skipped it.
