8 Movies We Thought Would Never Happen, But Are Actually Coming
Hollywood is a wild place. Every day it seems like we hear about new film projects on the horizon. However, just because a writer or director says they plan to make a thing, that doesn’t mean that thing is ever actually going to happen. Movies get stuck in development hell often, and a lot of the time, that’s exactly where they stay. Casts and crews move on to other projects and that film you were super excited about quietly dies.
We’ve been so sure that various film ideas were never going to happen that we’ve written about those concepts we were sure we’d never see, no matter how much we wished otherwise. For the most part, we’ve been right. Those movies have stayed dead, but every once in a while, a movie we were sure would never happen somehow gets resurrected.
Here we stand, in a post-Bad Boys For Life world. After nearly two decades and more promises from Martin Lawrence that it would happen than we can possibly count, we actually got the movie. So with that in mind, here are eight more movies we were sure we’d never actually see, and yet, we will, and some of them quite soon.
Bill And Ted Face the Music
The first two Bill & Ted movies came out fairly close together, and while nothing about the way the second film ended necessarily required a third film, that’s certainly the way these things usually go. Alex Winter, who played Bill. S. Preston, was seemingly always interested in going back and making a third film, and while talk started to heat up back in 2014, we just never saw much forward momentum. The fact that so much time had passed, that international audiences had no association with the characters, and even that George Carlin had died, all made it seem like a trilogy would just never happen.
