Five years after "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" hit the big screen, words on potential sequel are rushing in. Asked by CineFOOLS at the premiere of "Land of the Lost" whether or not a sequel is looming, director Brad Silberling seemed optimistic that a follow-up movie is likely to be happening.

"It was a co-production between Paramount and Dreamworks and there were studio politics and I actually think it's going to see the light of day," the filmmaker gushed. "[Name removed for privacy reasons] and I, he's the writer very friendly with Mr. Snicket I should say, we stay in constant touch about it, because I would love nothing more than to do that and we've been hoping to, so I think there will be a chance it may take a wildly different form but I think it will probably happen."

The first movie, "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events", is a loose adaptation of the first three books in the series. Released on December 17, 2004, it earned $30.06 million in its opening weekend and went on to collect more than $200 million worldwide. It features Jim Carrey as the villainous Count Olaf with Emily Browning, Liam Aiken as well as twins Kara and Shelby Hoffman as the three Baudelaire children.

I don't care if they make the characters, but use the same actors!(apart from Sunny) If Disney can get a 32 year old to play a 17 year old, then they can use the same people with this v_v
