In a recent interview, Kevin Costner stated that he has never made a sequel to one of his films and never will. Kevin thinks that sequels are too easy and that, “making sure fire box-office hits would take the excitement out of his work.”
Well I for one have been clamoring for a sequel to Waterworld and The Postman but I'm sure Kevin is correct when he says they would be sure-fire box office hits, and really what would be the fun of that?
I also think that he would suddenly see the light if someone offered him $100M to do a Robin Hood or Bull Durham sequel. Then he would be saying something like, “I wasn't ever going to do a sequel, but when I saw this script, and had the chance to work with such good people, I couldn't pass up the opportunity.”
Until someone decides they want to see a 50 year old man playing Robin Hood or Whitney's bodyguard turned crack dealer, I will just have to keep dreaming of Rumor Has It 2.
