A sequel of "Repo! The Genetic Opera" has apparently been thought of. In a recent interview with Moviehole, the rock musical's director Darren Lynn Bousman has teased that he is planning to start on the production of a second movie by 2009. Of it, he fessed up, "I want to start a sequel next year."

"But again, everything-I'll end my whole thing on a soapbox, which I love to get on," the man behind three installments of "Saw" franchise further explained. "This movie is all about support from the Internet, and support from fans. This is not a movie where you'll see billboards or bus stop ads or trailers on TV. It's a movie that exists in a grass roots kind of a fashion. It exists when fans go and see it, and they go on message boards and talk about it."

Moreover, he said that he wants to do the follow-up movie because the movie "was conceived as a three-part movie". Despite his enthusiasm, he admitted that he still has to do another project first stating, "But I'm doing an action film next. I can't say exactly what it is yet. It'll be announced next week. But I'm doing a big action film next, which is really exciting."

"Repo!" follows Shilo Wallace, a locked down young woman due to her rare blood disease. Able to escape her confinement, Shilo searches for the cure of her disease and information about her parents' past. In her effort to do so, she is sucked into the world of GeneCo, the biotech company providing the organ transplant for a price.

Starring Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton, Paul Sorvino, Anthony Head and Sarah Brightman, this Lionsgate Films movie is scripted by Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith. It has been screened in limited U.S. theaters on November 7.

I believe this first show will fantastic and I adored the music however it is something I stumbled on due to lack of advertising in UK but would love to see a continuation to the story and maybe even more blood and guts

There must be a sequel! I can't be the only one wanting to know more about the Graverobber.

Yes! I just bought this movie and someone told me there was possibly going to be a prequel made, but only if there was enough fan support to watch it in theaters and/or buy it. I would totally support you if you made the prequel. Please do so!

I loved repo and would love to see a sequel. It is my favorite rock opera

ABSOLUTLEY!! I need to see a sequil and the idea of a prequil is very much a tease. Im am obssesed with this movie, for some reason it put a metaphoric hook in my mouth and I have no intention of removing it. You MUST create a sequil!! Feed our addiction! I have some organs that need repossed ;)

i seriously want a sequil and prequil to this film. i mostly want a sequil to see what happens to shilo. alexa vega is about 23 now... could there possably be a pair up between shilo and graverobber? then again i really would like a prequil so that there may be more build up on the whole story.

I've always loved the ida of Shilo and that Graverobber in a relasionship!

I would love to see a sequel. I really want to see the aftermath and how much Amber screws GeneCo over. A prequel would also be awesome `cause I want to see more of Marni and Mag before her eyes. I might even die if the story doesn't continue. The music is so epic and it's my favorite musical!

Prequel and sequel? Has to be made <3

Prequel and Sequel please? ouo Prequel for more Largo action. I love that deranged excuse for a family, especially Pavi~ >u< Sequel because I want to know what happened to Shi? What happened to the Graverobber? are the Largo kiddies destroying GeneCo like Rotti said they would? I MUST KNOW. >o<

I think there should definitely be a prequel and a sequel, the first time I saw Repo! I was raving about it for weeks, and I can't stop watching it; I just watch it over and over again and it only gets better every time. Everyone I've talked to about it thinks both a prequel and a sequel should be made, and it would be wonderful!
posted by MrsRepoman on Oct 03, 2010
Needs to be done! Absolutely needs to be done. I have NEVER been able to say that a movie is my favorite, but Repo! The Genetic Opera is my all-time favorite movie EVER. A sequel NEEDS to be done. I want to know, like everyone else, what happens to Shilo! Gah! I am excited just thinking about it! =D hurry! Ya need to make it!

please please please!!! make another movie, i saw the preview and had to watch this movie after months trying to find it and rent it i finally did i bought it the next day. i watch the movie constantly
posted by UNKNOWN on Mar 07, 2010
OK. I'll admit hat I haven't seen the movie yet but I've seen many many videos on youtube, but when the next time i get paid I intend to buy it!! I've told all my friends that they should see and so far I've gotten 6 people obsessed with it!!I told them about the sequel that may or may not come out, depending on the fans, and they all agree with me that either a prequel or a sequel should and has to be made, even both!! Just keeping the Characters, or at least the main characters the same is what they're worried about. Without Alexa, or Anthony, there is no REPO! Just know that we All support you and we can back you up all they way!!

I just recently saw Repo the Gentic Opera and now I'm completely OBSESSED! I'm so annoyed I didn't hear about it before this. The day after I first saw it I went out and bought not only the movie but the soundtrack as well. There needs to be a sequel ! ! ! !

Hey guys! Support 'Repo! The Genetic Opera' by Liking and leaving a comment saying "I support the production of Repo! The Genetic Opera 2!" I know as of right now the movie is not very popular of well known. If you haven't seen the movie go out and buy it, rent it, buy it on blu-ray! Spread the word! To your friends, your friends' friends and maybe your family! Remember, the production of a sequel or a prequel of Repo! The Genetic Opera all depends on the popularity of this movie and the fans! Thanks a bunch!

A prequel to Repo would be absolutely amazing!! Marni and Nathan's story needs to be told, and as another obsessed fan I'm just dying to know what happened to Shilo! So in short my answer is; YEEEEES!!!!!! Repo! The Genetic Opera=<333333333

So,this movie completely took me by suprise! Just like everyone else, I too have become obsessed with it! Ive watched it many times in the last week since I first saw it. My friends had told me for months that I "MUST" watch it. Musicals arent my cup of tea, but finally I broke down and pressed play. Since then I cant get it out of my head! What a beautiful thing! The score is beyond amazing (as is the storyline). I cant wait for more REPO!!!! ps, anyone know where to score some Zydrate ;)

I saw repo just two weeks ago and since then have bought the movie and have been obsessing over it since then. I've been yapping my friend's ears off about it.. convinced two to buy the movie. ;D I'm a total junkie for sequels. THIS MUST BE DONE.

BEST MOVIE EVER, can's get enough of it. Paris Hilton finally useful for once. On the edge of my seat waiting for the sequels!!!

Seriously, this was the best musical I have ever seen. I loved it more than I did Sweeny Todd and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Loved it FAAAR more. And I don't tire of it. A sequel would be amazing. This is the best musical I have ever seen with such interesting characters and an amazing plot! The music is phenomenol! And I've been suggesting it to everyone I know/just met. Repo is a MUST SEE! :)

it would be sweet to get a sequal
posted by ToxicCraving on Sep 03, 2009
I honestly have mixed feelings about there being a sequel. It could either be something utterly brilliant or burn and crash to the ground going up in flames.
posted by merylz on Sep 01, 2009
This movie rocked. I would really like to see a sequel with a lot of familiar faces from the first one. I bet it'd do good.
posted by Hannah on Aug 19, 2009
It would be amazing if both a sequel AND a prequel could be done. Nathan and Marni's story needs to be told in more detail - lots more gore And a sequel would be amazing, with all of the back story over and done with i NEED to see how everything is going to work out, I mean, the ending was AMAZING and left so much to the imagination. STOP KILLING US WITH SUSPENSE!!!
