indiana jones 5

And now we pivot to a sequel you have definitely heard about. While Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull isn’t anyone’s favorite movie from that series (to put it mildly), there have been talks of an Indiana Jones 5 for years now – it just depends on when or if the principal players can hash something out. However, you shouldn’t ask producer Frank Marshall for details (via Fandango):

That’s still in the thinking stages. I don’t know, because that’s one I’m not involved in until they come up with the idea and the plan of where they want to go, then I get involved.

In other words: “Go bother Steven Spielberg or something. I know nothing!”

Speaking of Fandango scoops on upcoming sequels to Harrison Ford movies, they interviewed Ryan Gosling and he says they filmed for months on Blade Runner 2049 before Ford arrived on set. Take this however you want, but this certainly implies that Gosling is the proper lead of the movie, with Ford’s Rick Deckard only playing a supporting role.

Will Smith recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote his new movie, Collateral Beauty, but the conversation eventually shifted toward Bad Boys 3, which has been on the cusp of getting made for years now. Smith promised that they film was close to being a thing that exists:

It is very, very, very close. It is very, very close. It’s very close. […] We do one a decade!

Of course, Bad Boys 3 is actually called Bad Boys For Life and it’s being written and directed by Joe Carnahan, who is stepping in for the ever-buys-on-Cybertron Michael Bay.

Bad Santa 2

What does the box office and critical failure of Bad Santa 2 mean for Broad Green’s shift from prestige and indie film to more mainstream affair? The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the company was hoping that the sequel to the 2003 comedy would pave the way for a slew of new movies:

A great deal was riding on the sequel, which revived foul-mouthed antihero Willie Soke, who became a cult icon when the original film launched in the same Thanksgiving frame 13 years ago. Given the original’s $16 million bow and $76 million total haul, Broad Green founders Gabriel and Daniel Hammond were hoping to use the sequel to jumpstart their upcoming slate, which includes Bring It On-esque sorority dance-off movie Step Sisters as well as the Ron Shelton-helmed two-hander comedy Villa Capri, starring Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones. Also on the horizon are a pair of films that represent a throwback to the company’s original art house mandate: a Buena Vista Social Club sequel and an untitled Terrence Malick drama starring Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman.

Let’s close out this edition of Sequel Bits with an image from the set of the Jumanji remake, which features Dwayne Johnson flinging someone in the general direction of stone pillar, a position that no mortal human should want to find themselves in.
