To pair with my "Remakes of sequels" thread, I thought it'd be interesting to consider if any remakes have ever had sequels. There must be some, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. Can anyone else?

And stuff like Batman Returns wouldn't count - yeah, there was an earlier Batman movie before the one in 1989, but we can't consider it to remake the Adam West flick - they both simply share the same source. An iffier case could be made for something like the 1988 Bourne Identity TV movie. Should we consider the 2002 theatrical flick to be a remake? I wouldn't, since both came from a novel, but it's up for debate.

So let's hear some!

Some Godzilla movies probably count as both sequels to remakes and remakes of sequels.

I'm not sure where you'd fit U.S. Marshalls.

Is Father of the Bride II a remake of Father's Little Dividend or not?

Ocean's Twelve is probably the most obvious one.
Jay's Movie Blog - A movie-viewing diary.
Transplanted Life: Sci-fi soap opera about a man placed in a new body, updated two or three times a week.

The same place you'd fit Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleased. I guess it depends on whether one considers a film version of a TV show to be a "remake".

I wouldn't. It goes back to the Batman equation. I only want sequels to remakes of MOVIES, not adaptations of comics, TV shows, etc.

Excellent call!

BTW, Colin, is the following phrasing what you intended:

From the thread title, I was expecting "if any remakes have ever had sequels".

:b I confused myself with the two threads!

Yes, the thread title is correct - I wanted to know about sequels to remakes. Whoops! I'll edit my original post...

If one considers A Fistful of Dollars to be a remake of Yojimbo, then I suppose For a Few Dollars More would qualify.

Hammer films of the 50's & 60's i.e. their Dracula, Frankenstein & Mummy series had plenty of sequels that ran off of the remakes.

King Kong Lives! would be another. Posted Image

oh & The Fly II

Remakes rock! If the first film were good why would it need a remake? And sequels are even better beacuz more=good + not too much. Just look at all the good sequels there are to already great remakes... The Mummy Returns, King Kong Lives, who could forget The Fly II? I wonder when Lost in Space 2 is coming out? It was so much better at what it tried to be then that black and white tv show. STAR TREK lasted longer then THATPosted Image

That would be true except that I don't consider the new MUMMY to be a remake as the plot is entirely different from the original film. It's more a case of reusing a title.

Lots of good titles mentioned here - can't believe I forgot all of them!

I would consider 1999's Mummy as a remake, if just because I see a remake as a movie that exists in an attempt to redo a prior film. It doesn't have to be terribly true to the source, but it must be BASED on that source in some way. Would Mummy 1999 exist without Mummy 1932? No, so it's a remake...

An article at moviepoopshoot.com reports that Paramount is starting a sequel to "The Italian Job".

There's the sequel to The Ring coming out next year (which apparently will not be a remake of Ring(u) 2).

This one's iffy: Abel Ferrara's 1993 Body Snatchers seems much more like a loose sequel to Kaufman's '79 Invasion rather than a remake of Siegel's original.
