Another movie bites the dust at Disney. At this point the studio is 2 for 3 when it comes to killing off projects that sound utterly lousy. This is a trend I could get to like if I wasn’t certain it’ll eventually affect something good.

Earlier this month, I ranted on how Wild Hogs director Walt Becker was considering a sequel, and why I believed that wasn’t a good idea. Well it looks like Disney is interested. ARGH! Our friends at the Disney Enquirer have alerted us to Disney’s recent web domain puchases:
Wild Hogs has somehow made over $106 million domestically in it’s first 19 days of release. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the film make $20 million by months end. And the DVD sales will probably match the domestic take. How does a movie like this make that much money? I still have not met one person who was even remotely interested in seeing the film. Is it Middle America?
Please Disney, there are some movies that don’t need to be made, and a Wild Hogs sequel is one of them.
