If you like to geek out about cinema, you probably already know the story behind Apocalypse Now 2, and why it was never made. But new information garnered by the Intergalactic Business Report reveals that the crazy story is even crazier than you thought.
Below we list seven insane facts about why a sequel will probably never get made.
1. THERE IS NO KNOWN SCRIPT FOR A SEQUEL TO THE MOVIE.
This is maybe the biggest thing holding back production, according to experts. Without a script, it’s very difficult to make a film, because the script tells you what to do. If you don’t have it, then you are kind of stuck with a camera and some guys running around. That just doesn’t cut it.
2. NOBODY HAS A GOOD IDEA FOR WHAT A SEQUEL WOULD BE.
Everyone we talked to says they don’t even know what a second movie would be about. Some insiders even told us we were stupid for asking because, “Who let you into this building? Please leave or I’ll call security.”
3. A LOT OF THE ORIGINAL ACTORS ARE OLD OR DEAD.
The level of challenge in making a movie with dead actors is rated from “very challenging to impossible,” and old actors are slow and weak, according to life. It’s very possible that movie makers decided against creating a film that would feature people who weren’t there or be about grandparents in Vietnam.
4. THE COST OF MAKING A SEQUEL IS VERY EXPENSIVE.
We guess. Probably making any movie is expensive. So this would be no exception.
5. “APOCALYPSE NOW” IS A FINAL SOUNDING TITLE.
Making it seem a little stupid to make it “Apocalypse Now 2” or “Apocalypse Now Part Two.” We assume you’d have to come up with a different title, like “Apocalypse Now: The Next Day” or “Apocalater,” or something like that.
6. THERE ARE A LOT OF OTHER MOVIES.
It seems like there are so many movies already that it’s hard to squeeze in a sequel like this right now. Think about all the movies you’ve ever seen. Then add like a thousand to that number and that’s probably how many there are.
7. WE’RE DONE WRITING NOW. GOODBYE.
At this point, this article has run its course and doesn’t have a lot to add to itself.
