30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
Percy Jackson & The Olympians
The people behind the Percy Jackson films were riding on the wave of franchises like Harry Potter, but these movies never came across the same levels of success. They did alright with both critics and audiences, but the studios behind the films seemed to realize that, after two were developed, there was no real need to make a third. The stars were aging out of their characters, and the public just didn’t seem all that interested.
As it turns out, they really weren’t. 20th Century Fox stepped away from the franchise at the right time, realizing that they would likely lose money if they tried to make a third film.
