It was a massive that most were not expecting and it wasn't long for sequel talk to follow. Throughout much of last year various rumors surfaced, culminating in talk last fall of new celebrity cameos which co-writer Rhett Reese quickly debunked. And ever since, word has gone quiet. Earlier this year, Harrelson was cagey about the prospect of a sequel saying, “I’m sure...
