After the mixed reception of “Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events,” one would have thought that it was the beginning and end of a possible film franchise of the popular books. Well, not so fast.
Speaking at the Australian premiere of “Land of the Lost,” director Brad Silberling said that he wouldn’t rule out a follow-up film. Silberling told CineFools;
“There was a period of time, about a year ago, where I would have said “Oh, good luck” because it was mired in so many things. It was a co-production between Paramount and Dreamworks and there were studio politics and I actually think it’s going to see the light of day. and I, he’s the writer of… is very friendly with Mr. Snicket I should say, we stay in constant touch about it, because I would love nothing more than to do that and we’ve been hoping to, so I think there will be a chance it may take a wildly different form but I think it will probably happen.”
