Other Stars Who Derailed Sequels
Angie Didn’t Want More Wanted
Wanted was a hit in 2008, but Angelina Jolie had good reason to decline a sequel: Her character died in the first film. “I…feel like if I die in a movie, I should die actually,” she said.
Will Shelved Elf2
Will Ferrell turned down a whopping $29 million for the sequel to the 2003 classic, worried he’d be attacked for doing a bad movie “for the money.”
Robin Had Doubts About Another Doubtfire
Robin Williams dropped out of a longin-the-works sequel to the 1993 comedy because the unintentionally creepy script reportedly had him spying on his daughter in college.
