Samuel L. Jackson wants to make a sequel to 'Snakes on a Plane' - 'Snakes On Crack'.

The 'Pulp Fiction' actor loved shooting the scary serpent movie so much that he is keen to make a sequel.

However, Jackson insists that if a second film does get the go-ahead the snakes need to be bigger, badder and madder.

And then the snakes could team up with Samuel L. Jackson, and together they could fight an even bigger, badder, and madder monster, like a dragon or Godzilla!

No ,one that looks like Godzilla, but due to international copyright laws - it's not.

Still, we should run from it as if it were Godzilla! ...though it isn't.

Considering that the first film kinda tanked at the box office, not sure this will go ahead. On the other hand, it may make some of that up in international revenues and DVD sales, and it probably wasn't all that expensive to make, so...if Jackson wants to do it, someone may well accomadate him.

Any better title suggestions for a sequel?

"More Snakes on a Different Plane"
"Sons of Snakes on a Plane"
"Snakes, But Not on a Plane This Time"
"Samuel L. Jackson on a Plane, And Also Some Snakes"

It's not an apostrophe. It's a very, very small snake.

Why not a documentary "The Real Snakes on a Plane".

Just 2 hours of watching snakes wriggle about and seing how they cope with take-off and landing. It would be funny to watch them try to open a boiled sweet to avoid the effects of the changing pressure [Razz]

Failing that, I like 1958Fury's suggestion. It has attitude, it has sass... and it rhymes. What more do you need from a film title?

I second that suggest from 1958Fury. Any reference to the electric boogaloo is gold.

As an aside, what is a boiled sweet? Is that like a hard candy?

You are correct, it is indeed a hard candy.

I don't know why they don't give them out on planes anymore... well, any plane that I've been on recently. They definately help with the ear-popping thingy [Roll Eyes]

Not exactly true - http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=snakesonaplane.htm

True, it did have a lousy opening weekend, but it's up to 45 million, a nearly 15 million dollar profit since it only cost 31 million to make. And it made back it's budget in the domestic market. Strictly speaking, while it wasn't a Summer blockbuster, it was a success, both finanacially, and IMO, as a film.

ETA - And as of yesterday it's still in over 2,000 theatres, not counting foreign markets. Admittedly it's doing lackluster at this point, although counting the foreign market it could still make it to double it's budget (which is what people say a movie is supposed to do in order to make any real kind of profit after marketing - although that is probably not true for SOAP, as the internet marketed this movie on it's own.)

Bleh, a SOAP sequel must not have a colon in the name. >_<

I vote for a simple switch of vehicle with the same critters. So, Snakes on a Boat is born. The obvious choice, IMO. And with SOAP, the obvious choice is best. ^^

I was about to say what Midgard Dragon said. And future sequels would be simple enough: Snakes on a Train, Snakes on a Bus (when the budget gets really tight), Snakes on a Spaceship (for the sci-fi touch, when the budget goes back up), perhaps a period piece called Snakes on a Zeppelin (the real reason the Hindenburg caught on fire...), a family comedy called Snakes in a Motor Home, a cold-war thriller called Snakes in a Submarine (or the WWII version, Snakes in a U-Boat -- hmmm, might be tricky to work Samuel L. Jackson into that one....), Snakes on a Stagecoach (a western)....the possibilities are staggering.

I don't know "Snakes in a Colon" sounds scary to me. The plot could centre around an attempt to get at a famous surgeon by putting poisonous snakes up a patient's rectum.
