New Sequels Confirmed For Enchanted, The Fast and the Furious, and Da Vinci Code Sequel The Lost Symbol

Sequel News: The Fast Enchanted Code

One good flick deserves another, right? Franchise-happy Hollywood has a block of sequels in the works, and today's three include one that makes me groan, one that's actually fun, and one that we all saw coming.

  • Fifth time's a charm: The Fast and the Furious's next installment has been confirmed, with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel attached yet again. At least the title, Fast & Furious: Fast Five, is a more creative title than the fourth's. This time, Dom and Brian's characters are fugitives on the run from authorities. I bet they have the perfect getaway vehicles in mind.
  • Get Enchanted all over again: Disney is going full steam ahead with a sequel to the 2007 fairy tale. There's no news about the story and none of actors, like Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey, are attached yet, but Variety reports that Disney "will likely try to bring [them] back." A new director has been hired, though: The Proposal's Anne Fletcher.
  • Da Vinci's Third Decoding: Finally, Dan Brown's latest book about Robert Langdon, The Lost Symbol, is also getting the film adaptation treatment. No shocker here, since its predecessors The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons did so well at the box office. Tom Hanks is not yet confirmed to reprise his role as Langdon, though I can't imagine he won't.

Personally, I think that The Lost Symbol's movie future was a total given, while Disney always finds a way to extend its fairy tales, and Enchanted's delightfulness almost begs for more to the story. But I'm kind of reeling that The Fast and the Furious is getting another sequel. I thought the fourth, such a close replay of the first film, was its swan song — and kind of unnecessary itself. What more can be said about these men who love fast cars? Do you want to see more of Paul and Vin, driving furiously?

Yeah, I wouldn't say no to another F&F sequel. My sister and I loved the first one so much, we saw it at least 10 times at the theater! Well it was the $1.50 theater but still! It was just easy summer fun. I liked the most recent installment, I'm not really sure where it would go but who cares? Hot guys and hot cars = fun!

Actually, I'm a woman and I'm interested in the Fast and Furious sequel. I generally don't like sequels and it is a blockbuster type movie. However, I missed the reunion of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in the last one and I remember being in high school when the first movie came out and it just brings me back to being young and care free, out to see a fun flick on a Friday night (and so on). So I'm looking forward to it, I hope it's fun and I hope I get to see it. BTW, I saw with a whole gaggle of girlfriends the first time (no boys) and we enjoyed it, it also didn't hurt that the girls kick butt in that movie too. Enchanted was pretty fun the first time around, part of me thinks it should be left alone...but it was a clever movie with a lot of spirit so if they can get back the original stars and offer as good a premise I'm game for that too. DaVinci code I've not ever seen it nor read the books so I don't have a comment there.

Sam, since this site is geared toward young(ish), women, you'd be right; a woman (probably) wrote this! Imagine that! I mean, would women expect a writer on askmen.com to be excited about the Enchanted sequel?

the fast and the furious is ever entertaining...i'd never pay to see it, but to have another sequel to half-listen to while doing something else on a saturday night on tv in 4 years is fine by me...they obvoisly keep making money so why not do iti've never seen enchanted but Amy Adams makes me want to kill myself every single time i see her on screen (i've never seen a full one of her movies but the previews are enough to make me want to die so that's enough for me)and obviously, re: the davinci code series...no comment
