30 Movie Franchises That Started But Never Finished
Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events
Now that it’s a TV series, it seems like a pretty safe bet that the A Series of Unfortunate Events movie will never get a sequel. The film, which adapted the first three books in Lemony Snicket‘s 13-book series, also starred Jim Carrey in a prominent role.
Although it could have been a disaster, the film was actually a modest hit with both critics and audiences. A sequel might have been possible, but corporate shakeups at Paramount put any plans on hold for too long. When you have young stars, you have to act fast before they age out of the parts they’re meant to play.
