WILD HOGS 2 rides off into the sunset


"Variety reports that Wild Hogs 2: Bachelor Ride is the third high-profile that Disney has scrapped since Rich Ross took over at the studio, joining Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Wedding Banned on the halted list.

The trade says the sequel was targeting a production start next summer, with Walt Becker back as director, and John Travolta, Tim Allen, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy reprising their roles.

Original screenwriter Brad Copeland had written the sequel script, and new writers were in the process of being hired. That ended this week, when word came down that the picture wasn't going to get made."

Thank you Old Dogs, for killing a potential sequel. At least, Wedding Banned still has a potential pulse.

Here's the deal on Wedding Banned

"After halting Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea last month, new Walt Disney chief Rich Ross has also dropped the romantic comedy Wedding Banned from its slate. The film was to have starred Robin Williams, Anna Faris and Diane Keaton.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio has put the project into turnaround, and the production company, Mandevile Films, is free to shop it around town.

The movie centers on a long-divorced couple (Williams and Keaton) who kidnap their daughter (Faris) on her wedding day to prevent her from making the same mistakes they did. The parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.

The movie was in development for a shoot next year."
