Eyes Wide Shut

Eyes Wide Shut 2

Stanley Kubrick’s final movie before his death was the controversial Eyes Wide Shut, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. It came out in 1999, which was an amazing year for movies, with so many classics coming out that year. But will there be an Eyes Wide Shut 2? Or do we have to settle for this one being a one-off thriller? Here’s what we know at the time of writing:


What is Eyes Wide Shut about?

A doctor in New York City embarks on a night-long odyssey after his wife’s admission that she feels unfulfilled.


Will there be a sequel to Eyes Wide Shut?

No, Eyes Wide Shut 2 won’t happen for a very straightforward reason: the story has already been told. The original film was regarded as an entirely self-contained, stand-alone narrative. Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman had an acrimonious divorce many years ago, and would definitely not reunite for a sequel, especially not as lovers.


What could Eyes Wide Shut 2 be about?

As we previously said, an Eyes Wide Shut sequel is highly unlikely, especially given Stanley Kubrick’s death. However, even if there won’t be a sequel, we can’t discount the possibility of a TV or movie remake of Eyes Wide Shut starring different actors.


When could a sequel be released?

The sequel would have at least been discussed if it were in the works. However, since there is currently no information regarding Eyes Wide Shut 2, it is best to avoid getting your hopes up, as the likelihood of one is extremely low.

Of course, this is all speculation and if anything changes, we’ll be sure to update you!
