The 2009 romantic comedy The Proposal helped launch star Sandra Bullock's career comeback and raked in over $314 million worldwide. Fans loved it and Bullock notched a Golden Globe nomination for it -- and, if The Blind Side hadn't overshadowed it with its Oscar honors, that would have been reason enough for Bullock & Co. to toast a successful 2009. So why would Disney want to pass on developing The Proposal 2?
Not that I'm a proponent of Hollywood's sequelitis, but following up the hugely popular and profitable flick seemed like a no-brainer. I mean, did you see that scene where Bullock runs headlong into Ryan Reynolds, only both of them are butt naked? Hilarity! Well, apparently someone at Disney didn't see the potential in franchising a series of nude-on-nude pratfalls, because as New York Magazine's Vulture blog reports, the folks at Disney have a whole new game plan – and it doesn't involve projects like The Proposal 2.
