We already know that director Paul Feig will be reteaming with Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, and Judd Apatow for a new movie – but it turns out Feig has another mysterious project on the horizon as well. Feig spilled the beans in an interview with Moviehole, where he said the following: “There’s actually something in the fall that… is a sequel to a movie that people know but I can’t really talk about it yet; we’re still trying to finalize it. That would be fun. It’s something I’ve wanted to with some actors I’ve wanted to work with.”
Feig went on to say that the sequel in question is not a sequel to Bridesmaids or even, technically, a sequel — rather, the mystery project will be a “reboot” of a well-known franchise. He added, “I want to talk about it but it might not happen because of actors deals and so on so I better remain mysterious.” Care to take a guess at what Feig might be talking about?
After the jump, possible sequels for two very different ’80s flicks.
