Paramount plans more direct to DVD sequels

It looks like Paramount is going to start churning out more direct to DVD sequels, and some of the titles may surprise you. We get the skinny from our friends at cinematical:

Paramount Famous Prods. announced plans to raid the libraries of Paramount, Paramount Vantage, DreamWorks, MTV Films and Nickelodeon Movies in search of source material to sequelize, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Projects already in development include sequels to Mean Girls, Road Trip, The Naked Gun, Bad News Bears and Grease. First out of the gate will be Without a Paddle: Nature’s Calling, due out in early 2009.

Some of these films already have sequels, I guess they will just keep adding on the numbers or alternate titles. With all of the above projects – I am not sure how they can pull the films off without the original cast, nor do I see why you would want to try. With the Naked Gun film in particular, if Leslie Nielsen isn’t in the picture – I will yell “blasphemy” from the rooftops. On the other hand, if he is involved it would be the only direct to DVD film of the bunch that I would be interested in seeing.

International Friends, from the above list, which films (if any) do you look forward to?
