Sylvester Stallone Confirms Demolition Man 2 Is Happening
We're living in the age of the remake and reboot - and the next classic to get an unexpected sequel is Demolition Man. The 1993 science fiction film, which starred Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes, is getting a second chapter, and the news came from Sly himself.
Speaking on Instagram in response to fan questions, the Hollywood star revealed that Warner Bros is involved.
When asked about a variety of films he'd been in, Sly read out the question: "Can we get another Demo Man?"
To which he responded: "I think there is one coming. We're working on it right now with Warner Bros, and it's looking fantastic.
"So that should come out, that's going to happen."
Well, you can't really get much more certain than that.
Of course, the finer details are yet to be revealed. With many of Hollywood's productions essentially on hold while we wait for coronavirus lockdown restrictions to be lifted, there's no telling when we might expect to see any further news.
However, the fact he said it's 'looking fantastic' implies the project is some way into its creative development.

In case you're not aware, the original Demolition Man starred Stallone as a Los Angeles Police Department officer called John Spartan.
He leads an unauthorised attack on infamous criminal Simon Phoenix - played by Wesley Snipes - which leads to the death of a number of hostages.
Spartan is then put into prison, alongside Phoenix. It all gets a bit mad from there - both Spartan and Phoenix are cryogenically frozen and wake up in 2032 to a world with no crime.
Lenina Huxley (which some have said is a nod to Aldous Huxley's Brave New World), played by Sandra Bullock, then gets Spartan to help her catch Phoenix - as modern police don't know how to deal with crime.
The official synopsis reads: "With innocent victims caught in the crossfire in Los Angeles' intensifying war on crime, both cop John Spartan (Sylvester Stallone) and violent thug Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes) are sentenced to a state of frozen incarceration known as 'CryoPrison'.
"When Spartan is finally thawed 36 years later, it's 2032, and Los Angeles is now a pacifist utopia called San Angeles. But with Phoenix again on the loose, Spartan must team up with future cop Lenina (Sandra Bullock) to apprehend the killer."
Who knows where it will go from here, but we can't wait to find out.
