Ever watched a movie and thought to yourself that it really needs a sequel, or found yourself pondering why a classic movie has never had the remake treatment? If the answer is no then, let’s be honest, you’re probably not alone. Yet the comedy potential for thinking up these imaginary blockbusters is huge. That’s probably why Chris Lumb from Shoe Cake Comedy Club (who ordinarily run a monthly show at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre) created Prequel Sequel Requel, a panel show alongside Discount Comedy Checkout pals Eddie French, Natalie Smeaton and Phil Smith, that dares to go where no film producers have gone before (and probably with good reason).

Prequel, Sequel, Requel is accessible through its Facebook page during restrictions and throughout the next couple of months the team have a varied bunch of movies lined up, promising something to suit everyone’s movie taste: sci-fi adventure Flight of the Navigator (31st May); Martin Scorsese’s iconic Taxi Driver (7th June); 80s cult classic The Lost Boys (14th June); action-packed crime flick Point Break (21st June); and beloved fantasy romance Edward Scissorhands (28th June). As well as getting the opportunity to laugh at the concepts that never were, audience members can also chip in, voting for their favourite idea from the panel and getting the chance to posit their own titles too. Future events will focus on Pretty Woman (5th July), Scarface (12th July), Mannequin (19th July), Super Mario Bros (26th July), Weird Science (2nd Aug) and The Princess Bride (9th Aug), ensuring that silver screen-based shenanigans continue throughout the summer, no matter where you happen to be.
