Remo Williams: The Adventure Returns?

By  · Published on July 10th, 2009

I’d love to take credit for this… I did after all call for a sequel to Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins three months ago in a post about movies that actually deserve a sequel. But apparently Fred Ward shouldn’t be expecting a call just yet…

The original movie was based on a series of books called “The Destroyer” from authors Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir (and others later on). Per THR, the first book in the series which introduces the Remo Williams character is heading back to the screen. Which I guess makes this more of a reboot anyway. The movie is being scripted by Charley and Vlas Parlapanides (War of Gods) with the hope that it will be the beginning of a new franchise. There are currently over one hundred titles in the book series…

Can it top the Fred Ward/Joel Grey original in the fun department? Doubtful.
