Call us crazy, but “Shakespeare in Love” doesn’t really scream “movie franchise.”
But then again, we’re not running The Weinstein Company or Miramax, the two studios that have launched into a partnership aiming to make a sequel to “Shakespeare in Love," among other films.
According to a statement, the idea is to create follow-ups to “some of Miramax’s best-known properties," along with TV shows and home entertainment products.
This team is planning to also bring you sequels to “Bad Santa” and “Rounders" as well, and they're contemplating creating sequels - or perhaps TV series - for films like “Copland,” “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “Swingers,” “Clerks,” “Shall We Dance” and “The Amityville Horror.”
The two companies are already working together to bring you additional installments of other franchises that just won't die, such as "Scream" and "Spy Kids." Each of those film series has a fourth chapter due out on April 15, 2011, and August 19, 2011, respectively.
