Studios giving the people movies that no-one wants
The latest news from Hollywood is that a Pirates of The Caribbean 4 is being made (with Johnny Depp helming). This isn't necessarily a bad thing as I feel I need to be reimbursed with at least two and a half hours entertainment after suffering the awfulness that was "At Worlds End".
Along with this Disney news is the latest from Warner Bros. They have greenlit an I Am Legend prequel. I don't see how this can be as entertaining as the first. I Am Legend admittedly made money but how much can you squeeze an already dry lemon? For me, both of these upcoming movies are unwanted. What are your thoughts? Do you think we could benefit from an I Am Legend prequel or yet another Pirates sequel?
ANOTHER UPDATE: No sooner do I finish writing this article, do I spot a new one. Lethal Weapon 5 is ready to go. Thankfully it seems that Mel Gibson is reluctant to sign on the bottom line. You never know though: the appeal of acting in a silly movie again might be stronger than another "straight" film
