7 Prequels Hollywood Should Probably Avoid


Hollywood loves a prequel.


But as Alien 5 proves, the studios are starting to run out of flicks that actually need them, and are introducing brand new back stories for films that were totally fine without them.

Because of this, we've decided to get copyright on a bunch of film ideas that are sadly inevitable. So, movie producers, we hope you're reading this. If any of the below flicks get greenlit, we want our cut.

Training Bull


Prequel To: Raging Bull

The Plot: Starring Cam Gigandet as Jake LaMotta, a kid from the wrong side of the tracks, whose rage needs to be channelled into something positive.

Enter Forest Whitaker as Mr Bully, a gruff ex-boxer turned gym teacher with a heart of gold, who sees a spark of talent in Jake, and decides to train him up for the College Golden Glove Championships.

Featuring an in-joke cameo from Cathy Moriarty as the English teacher Miss Thailer.

The Sequel To The Prequel:
Training Bull 2: Angry Bull. Following Jake's College victory, Mr Bully decides that LaMotta is ready to go national.

But the pressure of the competition gets to Jake and his old anger management issues start to resurface...

Featuring a logic-stretching cameo from Joe Pesci as Jake's dad, Joey.
