A sequel too far

With Top Gun 2 (more than 30 years after the original) and Indiana Jones 5 (nearly 40 years after Raiders) in production, it seems Hollywood can never tire of a tried and tested franchise.

So can we have suggestions for a sequel too far (to any franchise), where it's getting pretty obvious either (a) they've squeezed all the life out of the franchise, or (b) the main star has one foot in the grave .

For example...

Indiana Jones and the Care Home of Doom
Saw 10 (the antagonist runs out of characters to torture, so turns their attention to the film crew)
Died Hard (Bruce Willis' character finally keels over)
Great Grandson of Godzilla (Apparently there have been 29 Godzilla films over the years - even "Son of Godzilla" (1967), "Godzilla vs Space Godzilla" (1994) and "Godzilla: Final Wars" (2004) somehow failed to extinguish the franchise)

As the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only left-handers are in their right mind!

I work in that town!

and let me tell you this, they will milk a 'name' till it gives no more!

as for dying?

I have been on set and had actors and directors die on us....more than once! And that was not from accidents!

One of my good friends thought she had the world by the tail. She had the contract for Armand Hammer's birthday parties and was getting over 200k for doing them---then when she was setting up party #2 in his name---the sucker dropped dead! She was a little upset!

To be fair, Indy 5 won't be quite 40 years after the first one -- more like, well, 38.

"Top Gun 2: Flying desks towards retirement."
"Home Alone 6: living in Mom's basement." (Yes, there WAS a "Home Alone IV" and even a V.)

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

Pirates of the Caribbean 20: We stuff the dead Jack Sparrow and make him part of the ride!

Ohh that has been done???

and in Transformers 10---his Crew would kill him in part 7 or so---all his crew hate that guy! Michel Bay that is!

I recommend putting Voltaire in charge of the sound track for that one. Better yet: make it a musical.

I dunno, while Cruise can certainly cover that kind of role, if I were casting someone to play a disaster these days, I would get Jared Smith, Will Ferrell, or maybe Lindsay Lohan. I suppose Charlie Sheen or Mel Gibson could do in a pinch.

OTOH, if you wanted to have a disaster movie... well, those first three will do, if you get M. Night Shyamalan or Uwe Boll for director... no, wait, I hear someone was insane enough to be talking about letting Michael Cimino get behind a camera again! He'd be perfect! Give him a budget of $1.25 billion!

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!
