Bill Paxton interested in 3-D Twister sequel

http://popwatch.ew.com/2010/01/08/tw...l-bill-paxton/

Bill Paxton is hoping to revisit 1996’s Twister. ...he explains. “I think you’d still want to have a lot of the dark humor and all of that, with the flying cows and everything. I think you could kind of intrigue people more by getting into a little more of the lore and really understanding. I just think there’s a lot more to explore there."
I love the first one, and would love to see a sequel.

This would be a dream come true.

I have seen it so many times I think it is one of the dumbest movies ever made.

One of the best movies ever, for reasons I will never understand. I'd watch a Twister 2 3-D

I love that movie with an irrational love. I would totally see this, but I'd be afraid they'd somehow spoil it. The first one was just perfect the way it was. (Even with all the nonsensical stuff. Actually, ESPECIALLY with the nonsensical stuff. "Who are these people?!" )

Re: Bill Paxton interested in 3-D Twister sequel

That movie was just silly but I loved it. I think a Twister 2 is about a decade or more overdue to the point that one now would just seem like too much of a gimmick. Doing one now in 3D could be interesting but it'd still need a decent action story to pull it off and it'd need to be the "depth" 3D that works and not the "jut things into the camera and out into the audience" shitty gimmicky 3D that's popular.

On the subject of Paxton movies, a 3D Weird Science remake would be a thousand times better. Best part of Avatar was Michelle Rodriguez, running through the hallway, in 3D...

Helen Hunt in 3D would've been awesome when the first Twister came out. Now, not so much.

That would be awesome. I was just watching Twister the other day and wondering why they never did a sequel. It seems like there's a lot of potential and many ways the story could go.

Re: Bill Paxton interested in 3-D Twister sequel

All the cast is still there, so I don't see why not. I adored the first movie, and have it on Blu-ray. 3D would just be awesome.

I doubt Philip Seymour Hoffman would come back.

Re: Bill Paxton interested in 3-D Twister sequel

The 20th anniversary is in 2016. That gives them plenty of time to write a good script and film and use the best possible graphics & 3D technology.

OMG, I so hope this happens, and PLEASE to be setting it in the Ozarks!

Bah, the first one had nothing to do with the classic party game.

I don't see why not. PSH likes quirky characters.
