Why Ruin a Good Thing? 10 Proposed Movie Sequels You’ll Be Glad Were Never Made

Next >

Can you imagine a sequel to ET? What about Forrest Gump? With umpteen Mission Impossible movies (and let’s not forget Rush Hour or The Expendables), it’s no surprise that Hollywood takes a cheap shot in agreeing to movie sequels with the hopes of easy money and larger audiences. But, if you’re like the rest of us, sequels, trilogies and even series are often frustrating as they lack the quality of the original in everything from casting to the storyline itself. In fact, sometimes, Hollywood should simply leave well enough alone.

Horrible sequels are a dime a dozen but we can’t deny that there are still a few quality sequels on the silver screen such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Godfather Part II and The Dark Knight that do justice to their originals. Sequels like these are actually well planned and executed unlike the countless others who are scrapped, chopped or trashed (and thankfully so) before they ever get to the casting call!

As you can imagine, the list of scrapped sequels is incredibly long but, we found a few almost-made sequels that will most likely shock you because of their box office hit originals. In fact, these mistakes in the making would have easily ruined the legacy of the originals that the world has grown to love. Which movies had sequels and why were they scrapped? Here’s our top 10 list of movie sequels that we are thrilled to have never seen!
