Movie Movie Sequels That Never Happened

Here you can list whatever movie sequel ideas you know of that never came to be. I'm curious to see how many sequel ideas out there never happened and the info. about them.


There were plans at one point to have "The Mask 2" starring Jim Carrey.


Jim Carrey is not a fan of starring in sequels but he was forced to do Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995) under contract.

After that movie he made a statement that he is not doing any more sequels so, despite being offered $10 million to do "The Mask 2", he declined the role and the original sequel plans were scrapped.


Sometime in the mid-90s Nintendo Power magazine even held a contest where the winner would receive a walk-on role on "The Mask 2".


A sequel did come about a decade later with Jamie Kennedy in Son of the Mask. It was a huge flop and received attrocious reviews.

Before he finally made Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Hooper had a totally different idea for a sequel which he had titled Beyond the Valley of the Chainsaw Massacre

Buddy Giovinazzo(writer/director of Combat Shock) and Joe Spinell(Frank Zito in Maniac) were working on a sequel to Maniac. Maniac 2: Mr Robbie, they got as far as making a promotional short, but Spinell died before they could make a feature.

Buckaroo Banzai vs. The World Crime League was the planned sequel by the studio, but Buckaroo Banzai didn't make enough at the box office so the idea was scrapped.

"Mac and Me" was intended to have a sequel, but since the film was bad enough...it never happened!

Lord Of The Rings 2was the planned sequel to Ralph Bakshi's 1978 animated adaptation of Tolkien's books. Rankin/Bass Productions(who also did the animated version of The Hobbit) sort of did a sequel with Return of the King(1980)

Before Rob Zombie did his re-imagining of John Carpenter's Halloween there were plans at one point for a 9th sequel with a working title rumored to be "Homecoming".

Another scrapped idea was to do a "Vs." movie with Michael Myers meeting Hellraiser's Pinhead.

Around 2007 it was announced that "Spider-Man 4" was in development with Sam Raimi, Tobey Maguire, and Kirsten Dunst returning.

A script was then completed and then there was word that John Malkovich, Dylan Baker, and Anne Hathaway were coming onboard.

Sam Raimi then decided to step down from the project due to his doubt that he would be able to make the planned May 2011 release date.

Sony then offically scrapped "Spider-Man 4" and announced a reboot project that will focus on Spider-Man in his high school years set for a July 2012 release.

There were plans at one point for a sequel to Arnold Schwarzenegger's Commando (1985).

A script was completed but Arnold was not interested in the project.

The script then had a little work done to it and it was turned into Die Hard (1988).

The Odd Couple II might as well have been the 3rd Grumpy Old Men movie, since it felt more like one of those films than the original Odd Couple.

The Forrest Gump (1994) sequel called "Gump and Co." was scrapped because of 9/11.

Screenwriter Eric Roth had a script completed based off of the second Forrest Gump novel.

The story of the script was called "no longer relevant anymore" by those who were planning the sequel because the world was changing.

Yeah, there was word a while ago that a third film called Shanghai Dawn was supposed to be coming out. Nothing has happened with that

Yeah, what happened with Home Alone is that the third film was pitched around the same time as the sequel with plans to release them back-to-back but FOX did not allow that.

Then the plans for a third film came in the mid-90s and the idea was pitched to Macaulay Culkin about him reprising his role as a teen. He was not into it at all because he grew tired of the role and at the time he became frustrated with acting.

So they went with a whole new script and whole new cast for the unrelated third film that came out in 1997.

A fourth film in the Sleepaway Camp series was being made in the early 90s called Sleepaway Camp IV: The Survivor.

Production and filming had to come to a stop due to the company producing it going bankrupt. Only 34 minutes of footage was filmed.

On the box set "Sleepaway Camp: Survival Kit" the footage from the unfinished film was made available on it.


A fourth sequel did eventually come years later in 2008 called Return to Sleepaway Camp.

Though these weren't planned sequels, I like it when movies advertise fake sequels at the end.

The best being the trailer for History of the World Part 2 at the end of Part 1.

Others that did this-

Chainsaw Nurses hinted at the end of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers
Hedges "Just when you thought it was safe to trim" at the end of Blades '89

I remember watching that years ago with my grandmother. I don't really remember it as I've haven't seen it in a LONG time.
