    Howdy folks I've got some interesting info about some direct-to-DVD gems coming our way.

    1. Jaws 5

    Word has it that Universal Studios will pull a Superman Returns and ignore Jaws 3 and Jaws 4. Sounds like they may be in talks with Roy Scheinder or Richard Dreyfus. Or they may do a prequel and focus on a younger WWII era Quint and the USS Indianapolis.

    2. Gremlins 3

    Needs to be a prequel and explain the origins of the Mogawi.

    3. Goonies 2

    Most likely a new group of characters with little or no connection to original cast.

    4. The Lost Boys 2

    Involves surfing vampire adolescents. Too bad they are not using the original director's (Joel Schumacher?) premise of the Frogg brothers starting their own vampire extermination company. Even the Lost Girls concept from a few years back sounds better than this.

    5. Deep Blue Sea 2

    Eh...

    Further Observations On The DTDVD Revolution-

    My guess is a Last Starfighter sequel might be doable. Also Terrorvision 2, Space Camp 2, Top Gun 2, Mad Max 4, E.T. 2, Mac'N'Me 2, Little Monsters 2, Night Of The Comet 2, Maximum Overdrive 2, Christine 2, Back To The Future 4, Commando 2, Deerslayer 2, Mommie Dearest 2, Ghostbusters 3, Tron 2.0, oh and for Pete's sake a remake/sequel to Disney's Black Hole.

    I keep hearing rumblings about Ghostbusters 3 - last I heard was a CGI Ghostbusters with some of the original cast providing the voices. CGI because the original cast is getting too old to reprise their characters.

    Tron2.0 would rock. Black Hole definitely needs a remake.
