Bruce Almighty - How about Part 2

Postby Cambridge » Thu May 13, 2004 3:56 pm

Can we have a sequel? Maybe its because we fall in love with the character and don't want to resort to videos for instant replays of perfection. Some of us fans are so into the moment of surprise!<br> <p></p><i></i>

Something about the second time around... I missed so much. I felt like I had to experience it all over again! <p></p><i></i>

I wouldn't mind a sequel since it is probably my favorite Jim movie. But I wouldn't hold my breath because Jim hates to do sequels. Besides, I don't know how you could make a sequel to Bruce anyway. Everything was pretty much solved in the movie. What would you have left for the sequel? <p></p><i></i>

Bruce Almighty 2

Postby wondertwin » Thu May 13, 2004 8:31 pm

Just a possibility... What if God decided to teach Bruce about the Bible and 'its the darndest thing Bruce...' I gave a book on how to do life with simple charaters to show by example and humans haven't figured it out. Then just to be fun and exciting "Christmas Carol-esque" Bruce can Cliffnote it to expedite the process of ... And he would reply, "What are my children doing?"<br><br>Something like that. I like Bruce! Like to see more of him. He's... well, a lot like me. Thank God for Jesus, we can make mistakes (sin) and have redemption. "I love ya Bruce." Whats that thing they do - neck bob. "Thats why its not all that complicated, follow the rules. At least do your best, you're human. You're not God, thats my job." <p></p><i></i>

Oh dear god! Cambridge, you may actually get your wish!<br><br>This is from Variety today:<br><br>Godly sequel to 'Almighty'<br>Carrey circles 'Ark' for laffer follow-up<br> <br>By MICHAEL FLEMING<br><br>Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal Pictures and Spyglass are in talks to mount a "Bruce Almighty" sequel based on the Bobby Florsheim/Josh Stolberg script "The Passion of the Ark."<br>Talks are just getting under way, but the plan is to court Jim Carrey to reprise and to have Tom Shadyac return as director.<br><br>Though Carrey almost always turns down sequels -- he starred in "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls" -- he has left the door open for another installment after the first proved to be the biggest-grossing hit of his career.<br><br>Carrey and Shadyac have also scored with "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective" and "Liar Liar." Scribe Steve Oedekerk will be enlisted to refit "Ark" into a sequel, sources said. The "Ark" script could work with another actor, who'd play a widowed writer who's chosen by God to prepare for the second great flood.<br><br>Early plan calls for U to run production and likely distribute domestically. Given that "Bruce Almighty" grossed $485 million worldwide, the U/Spyglass talks to share are surprising. The key is the Florsheim/Stolberg script that, when shopped in April, was flooded with seven-figure offers.<br><br>In a deal worth $1.5 million against $2.5 million, the script went to SPE and producer Neal Moritz, with Dave Phillips and Matt Luber exec producing. It is believed to be a record for unproduced writers.<br><br>Shadyac, who was part of an unsuccessful "Ark" bid with Universal, was in contact with SPE brass because he's circling the comedy "Twist of Fate." Shadyac's enthusiasm sparked the studios to begin talking. SPE and U have partnered in the past on such films as "Erin Brockovich" and Spyglass partners Roger Birnbaum and Gary Barber recently took a deal at SPE.<br><br>Turning a free-standing script into a sequel is not unprecedented. After fruitless attempts to make a third installment of "Die Hard," Fox finally took the Jonathan Hensleigh's script "Simon Says" and redrafted it as a vehicle for Bruce Willis' John McClane cop character.<br> <br>Date in print: Fri., May 14, 2004, Los Angeles<br> <p></p><i></i>

this story looks hoaky. i wouldn't believe it. i think this is what people mean when they say "Don't believe everything you read". this sequel won't make it even if it was made. <br><br>it's repeating History. kinda like Ace Ventura 2, and Free Willy 2 and 3. . . come people! THINK!<br><br>when Jim says no, he means it. later! <p></p><i></i>

I could be wrong but I thought on the Bruce dvd Tom says a scene that got cut out of Bruce Almighty was going to be used for Bruce 2. I haven't watched the commentary in a long time and I have hearing problems sometimes but I thought that he mentioned a Bruce 2. <p></p><i></i>

Re: Bruce the Second Coming?

Postby mrsjec17 » Sat May 15, 2004 12:31 am

Wow! I don't know what to think of this. I don't think it would be a bad idea, only if they could get Jim, Jen, Morgan, and Tom all back. It would be silly if one or more of them was missing. I would like a sequel if the story was good enough and the whole cast came back. Tom is a good director and if he can make it work and Jim would agree to it then it would be ok with me. Bruce is my personal favorite Jim movie anyway. I think this sotry might have some truth to it because it is also on ET Online and the stuff on there is usually true. It says on there that if Jim doesn't do it then it will be played by another actor who will play a widowed writer. So it sounds to me like if Jim does it then they would re-write the script for him and make it be Bruce. The original script calls for a widowed writer, Jim wouldn't play a widowed writer if he did it, he would be Bruce. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. Jim does hate sequels though. We'll see!<br><br>Melanie <p></p><i></i>

If you hadn't figured it out, it was a post it! <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START ;) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/wink.gif ALT=";)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> Now, we know. I have not idea who Mr. Carrey is but he's a wonderful actor, artist and I wonder if he knows how to play hide and seek? Its Waldo and she's in wonderland in an enchantmen cottage going in for a... I was wondering if it ah, oh... uhm, I, oh well this is post-it and there is no laws about it so, ah... just breath. Are you in this wonderland of over the rainbow or in the oh- wow just glad to hear from overtly covert in the poetic art of repetoirez hummm... she grins sheepishly. Its a harlequin and its under rated. Oh God you devil...<br>GD:ekc<br>God created man and woman in his image, the woman was to be a helper, created from the rib of a man (its the funny bone) God obviously had a sense of humor- who writes this stuff anyway... Who devines inspiration? Give Him the credit - He's a wonderful boss and great benefits! Next time you go outside, let the breeze caress you, its God giving you a hug! Its makes all the difference in the World. How do you hug him back? Hug yourself first, then pay it forward! <p></p><i></i>
