Valentine’s Day sequel in the works


A sequel to Valentine’s Day has been announced by New Line – mere days before the film makes its official debut.

Entitled – ahem – New Year’s Eve, the film will focus on some of your favourite characters from Valentine’s Day. Of course, having not yet seen the film, it’s unlikely that you will have favourites yet. Let’s just say, it will be the actors with the most malleable schedules.

VD screenwriter Katherine Fugate has already penned the screenplay and director Garry Marshall will return to direct the sequel to his (likely) hit film.

Valentine’s Day opens this Thursday, and stars Jessica Alba, Jessica Biel, Bradley Cooper, Anne Hathaway, Patrick Dempsey, Eric Dane, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner, Topher Grace, Ashton Kutcher, Taylor Lautner, Shirley MacLaine, George Lopez, Queen Latifah, Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts and Taylor Swift. It follows a bunch of Los Angeleans over the course of the most romantic day of the year.

New Year’s Eve will begin production later this year, and will likely hit cinemas late 2011. Of course, this is all dependent on the success of Valentine’s Day at the box office this weekend. Considering the film’s surprisingly small $US50 million budget and the success of romcoms on this holiest of holidays, I think we can assume NYE is a lock.

Discuss: OK, so Fugate is clearly doomed to write holiday themed romantic-comedies for the rest of her life. Any proposed sequels to New Year’s Eve? How about Foundation Day? Queen’s Birthday? Winter Solstice? Or, for all the Sufjan Stevens fans out there, how about Casimir Pulaski Day?

  1. Oh dear, this looks like the perfect date movie, sickly but sweet….. I've got the perfect antidote. Have you seen 'My Scary Valentine Website' where you can stitch up your mates with a creepy love shrine this Valentine's?
