Steve Martin Aims to do Two More "Pink Panther" Flicks

by | June 21, 2006 | Comments

Despite the fact that I’ve been a huge Steve Martin fan for well over two decades, I strongly believe that his "Pink Panther" remake pretty much stunk on toast. And despite the fact that mostly everyone seems to agree with that opinion, Mr. Martin is planning to go back for a sequel or two.

From Dark Horizons: "Steve Martin is rumoured to be doing not one, but two sequels to his god awful "Pink Panther" redux for MGM and Sony. There is one good bit of news, the people behind the camera seem to be improving. Martin is apparently now polishing a script by "Dodgeball" writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber and Mike Saltzman that sees Inspector Clouseau placed on special assignment with Scotland Yard.

Former S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens is one of the names rumoured for the female lead. Kevin Kline, Jean Reno, and Emily Mortimer are not expected to return for the sequel. Thurber is also expected to fill the director chair instead of Shawn Levy ("Cheaper by the Dozen") this time."

OK, so the removal of Levy and the addition of Thurber is definitely a step up, and look at it this way: There’s not much chance that the sequel will be any WORSE than the original. (Well, actually the "original" was a remake, so scratch that.)
