Completely Unnecessary Bull Durham Sequel Coming
When Kevin Costner says he thinks a movie doesn’t need to be made, you have to listen to the guy. I mean, he thought Waterworld and The Postman were necessary works of art— can’t we trust him when even he’s willing to show restraint? But apparently Costner’s contention that Bull Durham doesn’t need a sequel is no match for some producers, who are hard at work getting Bull Durham 2 ready to shoot next summer.
Moviehole picked up on a story in the The Durham Herald-Sun, the hometown paper of a city clearly glad to have movie crews returning. Because the script is still in the works, apparently none of the original cast have been contacted, including Costner, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon.
I don’t think I need to tell you my exact feelings on a sequel to a 20-year-old movie that seems to have done OK standing on its own over the decades. Good for the people of Durham for getting some film industry money, but do the rest of us really have to be faced with yet another unnecessary sequel?
