I know that a sequel for this film is near impossible but it's nice to dream. If this would've been a box office success, I should still be watching brand new episodes of Firefly right now or would have a sequel that would either continue or conclude the Firefly storyline. Even without the television show, Serenity's content such as its story, characters and mythology were good enough for a sequel and it is evident right at the end that there might be a one.
The Iron Giant (1999)
The Iron Giant's happy, cliff hanger ending is so good that it just begs for a sequel. There are so many possibilities in this film that could guarantee a sequel. You could set up where the giant and the boy could get into a new adventure or maybe going into the back story of the giant itself or set it a couple of years later and see how it set itself up to something new.
A Scanner Darkly (2006)
A Scanner Darkly has a lot of great ideas hanging with it. Along with it's bitter-sweet open ending, I would like to see what happens to Arctor and whether or not he recovers from rehab and see if the drug distributor disguised as a rehabilitation clinic would be dealt with. I'd like to see and explore more of this dystopian world and focus more on how the drug epidemic affects society, not just on individual characters.
No Country for Old Men (2007)
This is one of the few films where you follow the villain instead of the hero because he is just so interesting. Going into spoilers, Anton actually gets away in the end but I just want to follow him and see what other murdering escapades he's going to do. Maybe put in new characters to come cross his path and create many scenarios that involves him trying to get to his goal with a ruthless apathy. Fun fact: shotgun silencers actually don't work because the sound doesn't come from the muzzle .
Lost in Translation (2003)
One of the things I love about Lost in Translation was its themes of loneliness and depression but executed in a quirky way and I believe that this can be used over and over again. It would be a very interesting if they use the same themes but tell a different story with different characters and a brand new location or maybe set it in the same time but with different characters with different backgrounds.
The Incredibles (2004)
If you're going to end with an open ending where there are new villains and possibilities of a brand new story, why are you still delaying Mr. Bird?!? Nah, I'm kidding, take your time but seriously, The Incredibles' universe is so good and so open that you could make one or two sequels for it. You could expand on how the super hero business affects the Parr family, maybe set it a couple of years later and we see how the kids developed after they learned that they're heroes, I mean there is a lot of potential story lines here.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
I could see this as a new Lethal Weapon like franchise where Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer go around getting in trouble, solving many different and mysterious cases while having many hilarious banters. Honestly, I just want Downey Jr. and Kilmer to work together again, I mean their on screen chemistry was just so amazing and a Kiss Kiss Bang Bang 2 would definitely make my day.
Army of Darkness (1992)
I know that there will be a remake of The Evil Dead and to be honest, I don't really care for it. Yeah, it looks very practical and sometimes scary but the only thing I want to know is what happened to Ash at the end of Army of Darkness? Yeah I know that there are comic book sequels but it just doesn't feel right since you don't get to see Bruce Campbell playing him again and still, you can't just leave such an awesome and iconic character on a cliffhanger, it's just plain annoying. For many years I have been waiting for the 4th film in the franchise but it looks like that may not be possible.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
It would be cool if a sequel to the biggest property crossover of cartoons ever in film. It could be a brand new story in the same era or It could take on a newer generation of cartoons, preferably from the 70's to the 90's. Maybe do a story where it deals with the relevance of of the older cartoons in modern times or a maybe a brand new case to solve. And I wouldn't mind seeing Jessica Rabbit again.
One of the biggest problems I have with zombie films is that the characters are generally uninteresting and unlikeable, with few exceptions like Shaun of the Dead or Zombieland. Shaun of the Dead doesn't need a sequel because it is a contained story and well, most of the characters are dead. Zombieland I hope should have a sequel. Not because all the main characters are alive, but their chemistry with each other is so good that you'd just want to see what happens to them and it would be interesting where their travels lead them through a zombie infested USA.
In no particular order. These are the films I think that truly deserve a sequel. Whether its because of it's open ended feeling, the story is really well thought out or because its universe and ideas are so good , it would be very interesting to see a continuation of these films. Films that already have planned sequels do not count e.g. How to Train Your Dragon. May contain spoilers so be careful of what you read.
