Sylvester Stallone is very well known for making comebacks to some of his most well established franchises, whether it involves taking up the mantle as Rocky Balboa again or having one more adventure as John Rambo. Now it seems like that moment is coming yet again as Stallone made the announcement that a sequel to his 1993 cult classic Demolition Man is in the works.
Stallone announced the sequel’s development through his Instagram page during a Q&A session in response to someone asking about a follow up to Demolition Man. He replied that the film is in the works with Warner Bros right now, stating “It’s looking fantastic. So, that should come out, that’s going to happen.” Of course, this is still early on and not much else has been revealed about the film outside of Stallone’s involvement. Therefore its unknown if director Marco Brambilla will return nor any of the original film’s stars, including Sandra Bullock and Wesley Snipes.
Demolition Man has gained a cult following in recent years due to its cultural relevance and, in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even produced some odd foreshadowing to our own future, most notably how the three seashells have ultimately replaced toilet paper. Hopefully this sequel will see the light of the day in a future that isn’t quite as reflective of the one seen in the original film.
