Reboots, sequels, and remakes have been a very resilient trend in Hollywood the last few years.
But when asked recently if she’d consider a “Miss Congeniality 3,” the film's lead, Sandra Bullock, instantly answered, ‘God no! No, no.”
In fact the actress, reliably relatable in her unfiltered interview style, admitted that she thinks there shouldn't have even been a “Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous.”
That 2005 sequel, co-starring Regina King and William Shatner, was greenlit after the 2000 original was such a big hit. But, as Metro reported, Bullock admitted in a recent interview that that didn’t make her like the sequel any more.
“Two shouldn’t have been done,” she said, “but I’m glad that it did because of Regina, who I just freaking adore. That one should have remained a one-off.’
Dumping on her movie misses has been a thing recently for Bullock, as she went off a bit on "Speed 2" in another interview.
But just as soon as she dismissed "Miss Congeniality 2," she suggested a fun related idea.
“Unless they make a prequel,” Bullock added, “with the young Gracie Hart, with the mustache and the monobrow. Gracie Hart in her 10, 11-year-old life, still acting very much the same as Gracie Hart as an adult, would be cute.”
Hope springs eternal, Miss Congeniality fanatics. But for now, Bullock is far more focused on hyping her recent hit, “The Lost City,” an action comedy co-starring Channing Tatum, Daniel Radcliffe, and Brad Pitt. It’s in theaters now.
You might want to catch it, as Bullock has recently intimated that she's done with acting for a while so she can spend more time with her family.
