  • Sequels/Reboots of movies from the late 70s, 80s, and early 90s

    Lately there has been a number sequels of movies going into production, or have already been released, of movies that were released in the late 70s, 80s, or early 90s. I thought it would be interesting to compile a list of what has been released, what is in production, or what is rumored or in pre-production.






    Already released:
    • Rocky Balboa (2006)
    • Rambo (2008)
    • Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)
    • Live Free or Die Hard (2007)
    • Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (1999)
    • Star Wars Episode 2: Attack of the Clones (2002)
    • Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith (2005)
    • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008)
    • Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
    • Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
    • Halloween (2007)
    • Exorcist: The Beginning (2004)
    • Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist (2005)
    In production:
    • TR2N (Tron 2) (2011)
    • Race to Witch Mountain (2009)
    • Power of the Dark Crystal (2009 ??)
    • The Terminator: Salvation (2009)
    • Star Trek (2009)
    • Poltergeist (2009)
    • Friday the 13th (2009)
    Rumored or in pre-production:
    • Top Gun 2
    • Goonies 2
    • Ghostbusters 3
    • Jurassic Park 4
    • Beverly Hills Cop 4
    • Indiana Jones 5
    • Rambo 5
    • Alien 5
    • The Terminator 5
    • The Terminator 6
    • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (reboot - live action sequel)
    • Short Circuit
    • The Twilight Zone
    • Child's Play
    • A Nightmare on Elm Street
    • new Muppets movie
    I’ve left off ongoing series movies like Batman and James Bond. It's also interesting to note that there was a Goonies cartoon in the works but it got cancelled. I think it may have been Star Wars that kicked off the return of all these franchises.

    If anyone knows any others, feel free to add.

    I think it's brilliant that they want to reboot Ghostbusters and pretty much have the original cast hand off the reigns to a new generation of ghostbusters. Great idea there since there is so many possibilities in such a reboot.

    Terminator really isn't a reboot and I wouldn't say Alien is, either. I mean, look at the amount of time between Aliens and Alien3. I'm a HUGE Alien fan so I really hope this goes through. Plus, I'm really looking forward to Terminator: Salvation.

    Jurassic Park 4 has been in and out of development hell for a long time so we'll see if that ever really occurs. I'd see it, though.

    Here's the one's I know of...

    (Reboot) Friday The 13th
    (Reboot) A Nightmare On Elm St.
    (Reboot) Poltergeist

    Dont get me wrong. I personally dont like the amount of reboots/remakes but they're not always bad. Perfect example: Batman Begins / The Dark Knight. F'in phenomenal.

      The new Terminator trilogy starting with next year's Salvation, are sequels.

      I completely forgot about all the recent horror movie reboots as well. Even Child's Play is supposed to be getting rebooted.

      The other good reboot besides Batman: Casino Royale. But I didn't include 007 on the list as it has been ongoing since the 60s.

        Guess the date of the release of the remake of Friday the 13th? But since that series of films never bothered about details such as a coherant through-story (it's the mother! it's him! it's a monster! it's a cyborg!) its one franchise that would benefit a reboot (and none of them were masterpieces now were they?)

        But a new Dark Crystal movie? That's news to me! Although you ommitted to mention to rumoured/in pre-production new Muppet movie (possible remake of the original?)
        WDW - 1987 & 1991
        DLP - 1996, 2004, 2006 & 2007
        DLR - October 2011

          I just heard about the Muppets the other day. Not sure if it's a reboot or a sequel. I'll add it to the list.

          As for Dark Crystal, it's been in the news for at least the last two years. If you Google it you can see some production art for it.

            So was Herbie a sequel or re-boot?

              Herbie was a sequel unfortunately.

              The new Muppet movie will be in the style of the original (let's put on a show! not Muppet random Location/Famous Story) but not a remake.

              Also Footloose (2009) and the new Fraggle Rock movie (2009?) could be added to the list.
              I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

                Don't count on Goonies 2 happening. It's been a rumor for a long time and more than once, various members of the original cast have said it's all wishful thinking.

                  Also, not sure if you could count "The Hobbit" as a sequel ... well, really a prequel to Lord of the Rings.

                    There was a Hobbit cartoon:
                    The Hobbit (1977) (TV)

                    Jason Segel is writing the new Muppet movie. That makes me happy.

                      There are actually many other movies you didnt mention. But, their not that famous of movies. At the top of my head is The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3...which is a reboot

                        Footloose is only a remake in as much a the recent The Producers and Hairspray movies were: - movies based on stage musicals based on movies.

                        And although I love the Muppets, I think that new Muppet, Fraggle Rock and Dark Crystal movies within a short space of time may be a bit much for a set of franchises that many believe to be dead-in-the-water following the sad passing of Jim Henson.
