Is there anything greedier than a true Hollywood producer? Most of them remind me of the glutton in Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life who explodes when he eats the after dinner mint.Any reasonably successful film will produce a sequel (unless everyone dies at the end and the ship sinks like Titanic, but I’ll bet there were ideas floating around Hollywood for a sequel). Some of them have nothing to do with the first film, but retain the title. Some are another episode in the character’s life. Some are a real continuation of the story.And then there’s Evan Almighty. It doesn’t really continue the story, but it has characters from the first film (Bruce Almighty), it’s not the main characters, but they did retain the word “almighty” so you know it’s a real sequel.
