Sequels, sequels, and more sequels. Love em or hate em, that is definitely what's trending in Hollywood, and over at Universal Pictures. Universal chairman, Adam Fogelson, sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about the future pipeline for the studio, and dished on which potential franchises to look out for. So here's the Universal run-down. The first movie up for a part deux is Ted. Ted drew a pretty moderate crowd bringing in 54 million opening weekend, and Seth McFarlene fans are still raving about the comedy starring Mark Wahlberg.. Another sequel that is in the works is for Snow White and the Huntsman. Opening weekend, Snow White brought in around 56 million and starred Twilight's Kristen Stewart and Thor's Chris Hemsworth. and a sequel will likely dive even deeper into their characters. And remember that affair that Kristen Stewart and director Rupert Sanders had? When asked about Sanders being back to direct, Fogelson eloquently said that he probably wouldn't be pursing the job. Oh the Hollywood drama...Back to the sequels If you haven't had your fill of The Bourne franchise you will be happy to know that Fogelson gave a "100% yes" that they will be moving forward with a Bourne 5. But the real question is about Matt Damon's involvement, and that's still up in the air. What would a Bourne be without Matt Damon!?! Fogelson said quote "Matt has talked about the possibility of coming back, and we totally respect that and are excited if and when he wants to have conversations. But I think the last movie gave us a big bunch of options to pursue a next chapter." So it definitely looks like they are considering their option on this one. In this same interview, Fogelson also dished on the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, and said that they are in no rush to produce it, but that the film is a priority and that we could possibly have a release date as early as next summer for the first film! And if you want to know if the movie will be as sexy as the book, well, don't get too terribly excited because an R-rating can only go so far people, but there is a possibility that some of the naughtier stuff will make the DVD/Blu-ray cut...if you're into that kinda thing. So, what do you all think of all of these sequels? Do you think the story lines lend themselves to part 2's and 3's? Or are you of the mindset that the studios are just out to make some easy money? This could get interesting...so leave your thoughts down below, and make sure that you have "liked" our page over on Facebook! Im Erin White, thanks so much for watching, and Ill see you again next time!!
