Sequel Buzz on "Haunted Hill" and "Fast and the Furious"?

by | April 12, 2007 | Comments

For those of you who were desperately waiting to see a sequel to "House on Haunted Hill," your wait is soon over. Also, raise your hand if you’re interested in seeing a third sequel to "The Fast and the Furious."

Production has just wrapped on "Return to House on Haunted Hill," which will be released direct-to-video by Warner Bros. this September. Producer Joel Silver sees it as a test product of sorts, in that he’ll happily greenlight more DTV sequels inspired by his Dark Castle titles if this one proves popular enough. Which is really great news if you’re a fan of "Thirteen Ghosts," "Ghost Ship," "Gothika," "House of Wax," or "The Reaping."

Written by first-timer William Massa and directed by first-timer Victor Garcia, the sequel will star genre veterans like Jeffrey Combs, Erik Palladino, and Cerina Vincent. We haven’t been given much in the way of plot details, but do we really need any? It’s a haunted house flick!

In other sequel news, it looks like screenwriter Chris Morgan has sold an untitled adventure script to Universal, which is all fine and good, but in the same report we get this information: "Morgan also penned last summer’s "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" for Universal. Based on the global success of "Tokyo Drift," which grossed $158 million worldwide, the studio tapped Morgan to write a fourth installment of the franchise."

Really? Another "F & F" flick? And it won’t be going direct to video? Actually, I’m not that surprised. All you need is a bunch of cars and some photogenic faces and you’re already halfway into production on a "Fast and the Furious" sequel.
