Monster’s Ink a sequel deal

Monster’s Ink a sequel deal

Not surprisingly, considering how much cabbage it made not only theatrically but on home video, Pixar’s “Monster’s Inc” is planting a sequel seed.

At the licensing fair in Las Vegas, Disney/Pixar revealed (albeit behind closed doors to buyers only) that original director Pete Docter (“Up”) will return to helm a sequel to the 2001 flick. The original garnered a sweet $62 million on its initial opening weekend in the states.

Despite their original plan to mainly produce original content, the House of Mouse seem to be well and truly on the sequel train now. In addition to “Monsters Inc 2”, they’ve also got sequels to “Toy Story” and “Cars” on their books.

Jim Hill Media, who had the “Monster’s Inc” scoop, also reports that Disney has pushed back Uncle Jerry’s fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, starring Johnny Depp, to 2012 (it was originally earmarked for 2011). By the sounds of it, Bruckheimer and company are putting all their energy into the “Lone Ranger” remake – also starring Johnny Depp – before rebooting their systems for the “Caribbean” sequel. Its OK mate, we’re in no rush – or I aren’t anyway.
