Oh dear! I fear nothing good will come from this. Even with Ridley Scott's involvement.
Call me pessimistic, but some things are better left alone.
Other "great" sequel material:
- Casablanca 2: Showdown at El Alamein
- The Return of Forrest Gump: This time he's even dumber
- Revenge of the Seven Samurai
- The Downfall 2: Voyage to Argentina
- Apollo 14
- Highlander 2....oh, wait!
Sheer genius. Or how 'bout
The Graduate II: Postdoc Blues
After High Noon, the 3:10 from Yuma
From Here to Eternity, and Even Further
Long Gone with the Wind: a Carpetbagger's Odyssey
Son of Spartacus meets Ben Hur
Citizen Kane, Jr.
To Kill a Mockingbird II: Scout Finch, Freedom Rider
there's a book in this, I think...
