Unnecessary Sequels

Posted in Nothing Really with tags , , , , , , on 1 October, 2008 by Ally

It was recently announced that Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer is writing a sixth book in Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, entitled And Another Thing… Also, my friend Den just linked me to an article regarding a potential sequel to Blade Runner. The rumours on that one have thankfully been debunked, but it got me thinking about other potential unwelcome sequels:

Citizen Kane II: Raising Kane
After being raised from the dead by a Voodoo priest, Charles Foster Kane goes on a murderous rampage in a desperate attempt to find Rosebud. He still won’t tell anyone what exactly Rosebud is though.

To Kill Another Mockingbird
Scout, who has grown up to be a lawyer, defends a man accused of killing a mockingbird.

Kiss Me Deadly II: Hammer and Tongs
Hardboiled private eye Mike Hammer undergoes extensive surgery to remove a pair of barbecue tongs from his digestive system.

Duck Soup: A Second Helping
Freedonia is under strain from the “Credit Crunch”, after Harpo spreads the economy on a cracker and eats it. There’s only one thing to do; 75% of the population must be culled. Will Zeppo be first against the wall?

On another note, the new Ben Folds album is deeply disappointing.
