After Conan the Destroyer (1984) there were plans for a third film called "Conan the Conqueror" set for 1987.

Schwarzenegger couldn't do it because he was under contract to do Predator and he didn't want to form a new contract with director Richard Fleischer after Red Sonja (1985).


The script for "Conan the Conqueror" was later rewritten and made into the 1997 Kevin Sorbo film Kull the Conqueror.

Movie

From IMDb.

Quote:
A sequel, "Earthquake II", was planned, and a first draft of the script was written by George Fox, who wrote the script for "Earthquake", but it never made it into development. The sequel follows several of the surviving characters of the original: George Kennedy; Victoria Principal; Richard Roundtree and Gabriel Dell, as they settle in San Francisco. The multi-tiered plot centers on a group of scientists trying to predict future earthquakes on the west coast, a corrupt builder constructing high rise apartments on unstable land, and the original characters adjusting to new relationships (Kennedy and Principal) and new business ventures (Roundtree and Dell). An unexpected, massive earthquake hits off the coast of San Francisco, leveling the city, as a tsunami threatens to wash the Bay Area off the map. Completed in late-1975, the script went through channels at Universal (up to Sid Sheinberg) and the project was active up until early-1977 ("EQII" and Rollercoaster (1977) were in pre-production simultaneously) but "EQII" project was killed. This original script was newly discovered in 2005.

There was a rough draft written for a fourth Godfather film by author Mario Puzzo.

The general plot of the script was to show flashbacks to Vito Corleone's early years (perhaps to once again be played by Robert Deniro) and to show how his children came to discover their father's "business".

Due to Mario Puzzo's death in 1999 nothing ever came of it.

There were ideas for a prequel to the SAW series that would show John Kramer (Jigsaw) in his early years.

The idea was then rejected because the creators "didn't want to do a movie like that".

The people who were behind the prequel idea, Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton, used the basis and then made their own horror movie The Collector.

Though it did not do well in the box office there were plans for a sequel to Tom Jane's 2004 The Punisher due to its high sales on home rental and DVD. Tom Jane "The Punisher" and director Jonathan Hensleigh were originally said to be coming back.



The sequel was in the writing and planning stages for three years until Tom Jane decided to walk out of the project in Spring 2007.

Tom Jane left the sequel because he wanted to do a more "realistic and gritty approach more in the lines of Taxi Driver" and was not interested in the more comic book approach that the sequel was heading in.

When Tom Jane left due to his creative differences director Jonathan Hensleigh then decided to leave himself.



Due to this the project got a major make-over and new scripts, ideas, and casts were brought in.

Director Lexi Alexander had written a totally new script and everyone then agreed on it. They then casted a new "Punisher" with Ray Stevenson and released a new movie, Punisher: War Zone (2008), which was another stand-alone movie being unrelated to the previous two films.

There are some Saw fans still hoping for a prequel. I can see where a lot of writers and directors don't like prequels. I thought The Collector was a solid movie had a lot of elements from Saw.

If they ever do one it will open the door for a SAW prequel series.

Yeah, The Collector was pretty good.

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

Didn't Airplane II: The Sequel do that with "Airplane III" also?

According to IMDB trivia on Airplane II: The Sequel:

"This film was created with the obligation that its creative team return for a third installment. Expectations were so high that the next film was promised at the end of the credits of this one.

When the film was released to mediocre box office, plans for Airplane III was doomed. But, the ad remains in most prints."

I heard right after "The Breakfast Club" came out that John Hughes had considered the idea of having a sequel to answer the question of what happened on Monday when they went back to school. The fact that this sequel never happened is very good news for fan ficiton writers. I've read some good scenerarios!

There were plans for a third film in the Jack Colton/Joan Wilder series ( Romancing the Stone (1984) and The Jewel of the Nile (1985) ) that was scrapped due to Kathleen Turner's pregnancy.

The title of the movie was said to be "The Crimson Eagle".

There was word that M. Night Shyamalan was in talks to do a sequel to Unbreakable (2000).

Unbreakable was his next directed feature after the box-office smash The Sixth Sense (1999) and it did not perform as well as it did at all.

Studios were at first interested in the idea due to Unbreakable's high sales on home release but ultimately decided not to do it and M. Night Shyamalan went on to do other motion pictures.
