It's not only geek fare that gets the sequel love. In a fairly surprising twist, The Hollywood Reporter posts that Paramount is looking to develop a sequel to the 2005 thriller, Four Brothers. Mark Wahlberg, who starred in the original alongside Tyrese Gibson, Andre Benjamin, and Garret Hedlund, is credited with scheming up this sequel idea with the first film's writers -- David Elliot and Paul Lovett. Now Lorenzo Di Bonaventura is back to produce, the pair are writing the script, and it will be called ... Five Brothers, which makes no sense.

If you recall, the original saw these four adopted brothers coming together to avenge their mother's death. Spoiler alert -- not all of them make it. So four brothers, partially depleted, and then sent into a sequel called Five Brothers? The plot is being kept hidden for the time being, and THR rightly notes that it's not clear whether any of the actors would return. I mean, how could they and have the plot make sense? Most families don't gain a few brothers after mom dies. Then again, this is Hollywood, so anything is possible.

The original cost $45 mil and made a decent gross of $92 mil worldwide. Will that translate into another success? Is this really a film that warrants a sequel? Me, I'd much prefer a new sequel that has Wahlberg reveling in nothingness while smashing balloons into his face. But what about you? Sound off below.
