Peter Chattaway somehow came across some Google news stories about Drew Barrymore and Steven Spielberg discussing a sequel to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial that would focus on a grown-up Gertie.
I’m guessing this merely represents Barrymore trying to find something to give her failing career momentum a boost.
Let’s not forget what happened last time Spielberg decided to make a sequel… The Lost World: Jurassic Park 2. And since it seems we’re doomed to see another Indiana Jones film, it would be a shame if Spielberg continued to revisit past ideas instead of exploring new ones. (I can’t wait to see his film about the terrorism of the 1972 Munich Olympics.)
