Sequel Bits: ‘Wanted 2,’ ‘Step Up 4’ Poster, ‘Tintin 3’ Probably Based On ‘Prisoners Of The Sun,’ New ‘Evil Dead’ Logo

With so much sequel news breaking every day, this little post we call Sequel Bits is becoming a semi-regular feature. That truth probably makes most of us feel like /Film commenter brock_rox who wrote the following after the last installment. “It’s sad that we live in a world where a column especially devoted to sequel news has to exist. We brought this upon ourselves.” Very true, sir. However, the fact of the matter is most of us harbor an unsubstantiated desire for these sequels to live up to the expectations of their predecessors. And while that’s oh-so-rarely the case, as movie fans, you’ve gotta believe. Hence Sequel Bits will exist every once in a while.
Will these films live up to their predecessors? You be the judge. After the jump read about:
- Wanted 2 screenwriters Michael Brandt and Derek Haas are writing the sequel in the hopes Timur Bekmambetov returns to direct
- The second Tintin film will not be Prisoners Of The Sun. It may, however, be the plot of Tintin 3.
- The American Film Market provides our first look at a poster for Step Up 4 and the logo of the Evil Dead remake.
