Project X Journey 2

With one booze-soaked franchise coming to an end (Warner Bros. is wrangling to get the The Wolfpack back for "The Hangover 3"), it seems the hit R-rated hijinx of "Project X" has the studio excited that they may be able to keep the good times flowing.

THR reports that "Project X" co-writer Michael Bacall is already at work on a treatment for a potential sequel. It's early days, and there's no word yet if the largely unknown cast will make a return, or if they're even optioned (probably so), but it's clear WB is very happy with the $21 million opening for the low budget movie. Of course, who knows where the story will go next, but for those who were paying attention to the debauchery on screen, they'll remember that **SPOILER** the drug dealer who torched the neighborhood after the trio stole his garden gnome filled with Ecstasy is still alive at the end of the movie, and we'd guess he could still be on the hunt for them. **END SPOILER** Either that or one of them will be getting married/having a kid/graduating from college or something leading to a party of epic proportions. Whatever works.

We figure those three no name dudes will be back (though we wouldn't be surprised if Oliver Cooper, who plays the engaging Costa, gets ringed up for bigger movie roles), and at the very least, it will prevent Joanthan Daniel Brown (the fat kid who talked extensively about fingering) from falling back on his porn career.

Meanwhile, "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" has turned into a monster hit collecting $85 million at home, but a whopping $185 million (and counting) overseas. What the fuck? Anyway, the trade also reports that New Line wants a sequel fast, and have signed on Brad Peyton to return to the director's chair, with writers Brian Gunn and Mark Gunn to pen "Journey 3." In this case as well, no word yet on who (if any) of the cast will be back. We kind of guess the answer is no. Dwayne Johnson is now moving onto a bonafide action career, so we presume another lead will be found. Maybe they can entice Brendan Fraser to come back -- he'll be more affordable than The Rock anyway, right? Guess we'll find out soon enough as this is on track for a 2014 release, in 3D of course.
