Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

(2004)

Based on the bestselling book series by Daniel Handler, the "Snicket" saga revolves around a pint-sized trio of orphans named Sunny, Klaus and Violet who find themselves fobbed off on a series of odd people, including Lemony Snicket, who narrates each of what has grown to a series of eight books since Handler debuted the first title in 1999. The recurring bad guy is a distant family relative named Count Olaf, who initially takes in the kids but clearly is trying to separate them from a family inheritance.

‘Lemony Snicket's a Series of Unfortunate Events’ Sequel Still Possible?

It seems that we might actually be seeing some more unfortunate events at a theater near you in the future. CineFools recently spoke with director Brad Silberling, on the red carpet for his new film Land of the Lost, where he revealed that a sequel to Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events may actually happen after all.You know it's really funny there was a period of time, about a year ago, where I would have said "Oh, good luck" because it was mired in so many things. It was a co-production between Paramount and Dreamworks and there were studio politics and I actually think it's going to see the light of day. and I, he's the writer of... is very friendly with Mr. Snicket I should say, we stay in constant touch about it, because I would love nothing more than to do that and we've been hoping to, so I think there will be a chance it may take a wildly different form but I think it will probably happen.

There was no word from either studio involved as of yet, but we'll be sure to keep you posted on any and all updates regarding a Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events sequel.

The DAILY SPIN: Count on it!

This is the last Daily Spin column of the week. Sad, I know. You see; the Daily Spin week only consists of five days. Why is that, you might ask? Well, because Friday and Saturday are for getting drunk, and we here at Movieweb couldn’t care less about what those studios are hollerin’ down in the holler when the weekend rolls around. The Daily Spin likes to have as much fun as the next guy. Guaranteed. We’ll pick up the slack come Sunday...

I did get to view the first disc of the South Park season 5 box set. It’s pretty tight. This is one of their best year-runs to date, and it contains some luminous episodes. Trey and Matt really lost their minds this time out. Towlie is a classic, and Scott Tenorman Must Die is horrifying and, quit simply put, a bit disturbing. I can’t wait to check out the rest of these shows. I’d only seen a couple of them during their original cable run. The topical episodes are my favorites. These two guys really know how to hit a subject on the head. Sad, really, that I hated their Team America: World Police so much.

Inside ‘Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events’

Jim Carrey, Emily Browning and director Brad Silberling talk Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events!

Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events is obviously a vehicle for Jim Carrey to go crazy. He’s got characters in heavy makeup and the license to go wild, but the look of the film is equally the star. With dark, gothic and retro sets of houses, shanty towns, train stops and more, Carrey was in as much wonder of his environments as kids will be with his performance.
