I think the fact people actually think the sequels will be made at all is too funny.
The movies will never see the light of day. And friends who have read the books say its a good thing, that the squels are just boring.
i wouldn't say they're boring...just not as good.
There is always the Swedish trilogy which was completed if an English trilogy is never filmed...
Also here is a pretty funny review which compares this series to the Star Wars OT.
