Will there be an Amsterdam 2? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Amsterdam 2

Talking about disappointments for the year, Amsterdam perhaps takes the top spot. David O. Russell’s huge ensemble period comedy could not capitalize on the setting and the talent of the personnel. Neither was it able to inspire box office numbers to recoup production costs, the critics too discarded it as a big shambles. Amsterdam is about the political conspiracy that unfolded in the most scintillating fashion when Frank Roosevelt’s democratic government was almost overthrown by a military dictatorship.

Although the incident could not gain too much international recognition owing to the Second World War, it takes center stage in Amsterdam. Having seen it, you must be wondering if there will be a sequel to the film in the coming times. Here is what we know about a potential sequel that could take place.


Will there be a sequel to Amsterdam?

The answer right now – and most probably even after a lot of time – is not right now. A lot of big studios lost money with Amsterdam and the reason for that was attached to poor word of mouth. Given how bad the reaction and reception to the film were, Amsterdam 2 is most likely not happening.

Russell or any other creative personnel have not guided for a sequel. In fact, there has not been much activity after the release of the film. Apart from promotions, there has been radio silence on that front!


What could happen in Amsterdam 2 and when could it be released?

Well, since the original was based on a true event from history, the possibility of the story continuing is nonexistent. The episode of the Conspiracy ended with General Butler giving his testimony to a Congressional committee and that was it.

However, if the producers were to get enthusiastic about recouping their money, they could come up with a different incident from history with similar bearings and tones. The franchise idea, though, might be a huge risk considering how wrong such projects can go.

The possibility of all of that happening should be postponed until at least 2025. But like we said, do not waste too much of your time chasing this story. Almost impossible for an Amsterdam 2 to happen.
