There Could Be A Lemony Snicket Sequel

I was actually a fan of 2004’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. With the growing popularity of childrens book franchises being turned into movie franchises it seemed like Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events wouldn’t have much trouble turning into a successful franchise itself. However, a disappointing showing at the box office pretty much killed any news about a sequel to the film (I actually really liked Jim Carrey as Count Olaf in this flick).

But hold on… word from the director of the film says talks of a Lemoney Snicket sequel are alive again. The folks over at Dark Horizons give us this:

“There was a period of time, about a year ago, where I would have said “Oh, good luck” because it was mired in so many things. It was a co-production between Paramount and Dreamworks and there were studio politics and I actually think it’s going to see the light of day. and I, he’s the writer of… is very friendly with Mr. Snicket I should say, we stay in constant touch about it, because I would love nothing more than to do that and we’ve been hoping to, so I think there will be a chance it may take a wildly different form but I think it will probably happen.” 

 

Interesting choice of words. Not sure what he means by “it may take a wildly different form”. Is he talking about a totally different story direction? Totally different cast? Animated perhaps? I think my enthusiasm for the possible movie would take a bit of a hit if Carrey wasn’t back as Olaf.

What did you think of the original? Would you be excited or indifferent to a sequel?
