In one of the worst bits of news I can recall hearing about in the last several months, The Wrap has reported that The Weinstein Company is focused on making a sequel to Swingers, one of my most beloved films ever, amongst other titles. This was briefly rumored not long ago but now it appears to be closer to being confirmed. This pic lists some of the titles that they have in production for 2011.
The report also lists sequels to Amityville Horror (a sequel of a remake, yay!) and Bad Santa as those on the top of the Weistein’s list. The Weinstein Company is devoted to rededicating themselves to making independent films, which I think is a great idea, but don’t ruin what is an amazing film by attempting a sequel to it, in Swingers. I am curious to see what Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn have to say about this news. Devastating if it is indeed true.
