You know, there are lots of movies out there that I would love to see more of. Master and Commander was a great flick with characters I’d love to revisit. I’m always game for a new James Bond flick, and until a few years ago Star Trek and Star Wars could do no wrong with sequels. Heck, I’m still waiting for the jokingly hinted at sequel to Doctor Detroit. Garfield however, is just above another sequel to The Mask on my wish list.

Unfortunately, a sequel to Garfield is exactly what we’re getting, and the director for the film was announced in today’s Variety. The man behind Max Keeble’s Big Move and Muppets From Space, Tim Hill, has taken on directing the return of the fat cat.

Not that either of those films were really works of genius, but this certainly seems like a step down for Hill. Muppets From Space was one of the better Muppet films since the passing of Jim Henson and was probably Hill’s greatest accomplishment as a director until now (as a writer Hill helped scribe The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie. Max Keeble was pretty much live action cartoon violence, but even that was a step above the Bill-Murray-voiced feline’s first film.

Currently Garfield’s sequel has no slated release date. Maybe we’ll get lucky and it’ll stay that way.
