Wrong Turn 8 & 9

While reflecting on the original film’s 20th anniversary with Entertainment Weekly, Wrong Turn creator Alan B. McElroy revealed he’d still like to make an additional two sequels to the 2021 Wrong Turn reboot.

I had planned two more films, so there would be a trilogy, based around this idea of the Foundation and these characters.

I’d love to finish it and see it all come out the way I wanted.

The Flash 2

Though the film will likely no longer enter production under James Gunn’s regime at DC, Variety reports David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick (Aquaman) has completed a script for a potential sequel to The Flash reuniting Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen with Michael Keaton’s Batman and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl.


Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom

Relatedly, James Wan revealed to THR his upcoming Aquaman sequel wasn’t “affected too much” by the DCU’s upcoming reboot.

I’ve had to make adjustments all along the way. The DCU has been through lots of different versions, and one of the things that was challenging about this film was keeping track of what’s going on. “Fortunately, the Aquaman universe is pretty far removed from the rest of the world. We’re going to many different underwater kingdoms that are not necessarily related to what’s happening with the other movies and characters, so we’re stand-alone in that respect. So I can just tell my story on its own without being affected too much, but at the same time, I have to be mindful of what’s been happening.

Beetlejuice 2

During a recent interview with Empire, Michael Keaton confirmed Beetlejuice 2 will use practical effects “exactly like” the 1988 original.

Beetlejuice is the most f*ckin’ fun you can have working. t’s so fun, it’s so great. And you know what it is? We’re doing it exactly like we did the first movie ... There’s a woman in the great waiting room for the afterlife literally with a fishing line – I want people to know this because I love it – tugging on the tail of a cat to make it move.

[Burton] and I were talking about it years and years ago, never telling anybody. I said, ‘If it happens, first of all, we’ve both said we’re doing it many times. We both agreed, if it happens, it has to be done as close to the way we made it the first time. Making stuff up, making stuff happen, improvising and riffing, but literally handmade stuff like people creating things with their hands and building something. F*ckin’ great. It’s the most fun I’ve had working on a movie in I can’t tell you how long.
