Stallone confirms Demolition Man sequel likely to happen

May 4th, 2020 by Marc Comments

One of my favourite action movies from the 90s may finally be getting a sequel!

Sylvester Stallone, answering fan questions on Instagram (below), was asked about making a sequel to the movie which starred him, Sandra Bullock and a wonderfully Joker-eaque Wesley Snipes.

“We’re working on it right now with Warner Bros. and it’s looking fantastic,” Stallone said. “So that should come out, that’s going to happen.”


The original movie saw Stallone play a tough police officer from 1993 called John Spartan who was imprisoned (wrongfully) for killing a busload of people – he was set up by his nemesis Simon Phoenix ,played by an insanely energetic Phoenix and they are both imprisoned in a revolutionary prison that allows them to be put into a suspended animation while they are programmed to be productive members of society. However, when Spartan is thawed out in the future – and meets the unbelievably cute Lenina Huxley – all hell breaks loose.

At the time, the movie was a study of what exactly an action hero was and what their role is in a society that has no need for them. Until it does.

The world it showed, rather than a Blade Runner-like dystopia, is a near-utopia where eveyone is happy, there is no violence or murder and the police are basically caretakers in LA. However, given the world we live in now, this could be a tongue-in-cheek look at the over the top political correctiveness running rampant in the world today and how such things often have a rotten underbelly.

Or, you know, it could just be a fun 90s throwback action movie.

Either way, I’m in.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
