An empty stage. A single spotlight. A squirrel tail appears from behind the curtain.
Kit walks on from the wings, looking at the tail, confused.
Dramatic music begins to play.
Louis pretends to play the violin.
The curtains open…
A large sign reads: The Squirrel Detective: Season 2
Rebecca appears, singing “Auld Lang Syne” like an out of tune piano.
Nothing makes sense… And then…
A body drops from the ceiling.
Across the body’s back is “Percy Jackson”.
The trio rushes over, feeling for a pulse.
Is it dead? Is it alive?
Kit, Rebecca, and Louis begin to sing an operatic Adele-esque number.
“Let the bodies fall, when they tumble…
*The song suddenly becomes Rihanna*
“So what nowwwwwww, please tell me! What nowwwwww!”
*We interrupt this badly written crime drama to bring you what you actually came here for*
Rebecca: We’re back and I must say we look more fabulous than ever… Or at least that is what I can imagine. Tuxedos, sparkly dresses, and squirrel tails. Maybe even a bowler hat. Did anyone miss us? But to the point, we’re back and here to discuss the future of Percy Jackson in Hollywood. It has been 10 months since the release of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and little has been said if Titan’s Curse will be made into a movie.
LivelySparrow97: I pass this hand. Player to my left is Kit.
Kitkatgirl200: *Unintelligible squirrel noises*
LivelySparrow97: In all seriousness, I don’t really see The Titan’s Curse ever coming out. Which is sad.
Kitkatgirl200: Does anybody really? I don’t think there is a whole lot of hope.
Rebecca: Just to refresh memories, Sea of Monsters brought in $199,850,315 which seems like a heck of a lot more to justify making a third movie, but without an announcement, I don’t see Titan’s Curse happening with this long of a delay. Another delay like this will be at the cost of losing more fans which will lose even more of a profit.
LivelySparrow97: That’s true, especially when enough fans hate the current film franchise enough.
Kitkatgirl200: Well aren’t we all just rays of sunshine. I can see why the fandom would make them a bit nervous to make another. We haven’t necessarily been quiet with our complaints.
LivelySparrow97: I would love to see either a reboot or a TV show. I think a TV show could work and actually be faithful to the books. (TV show idea credited to Rebecca King’s April Fools prank.)
Rebecca: I agree, to save Percy Jackson, he would have to be revived as a reboot. And thank you, Louis! I find the idea of a TV series to be very cool!
Kitkatgirl200: I think it would make a good live-action or animated tv show.
Rebecca: Even Logan Lerman doubts it will be happening, but would be on board for a third one, but… he is getting bigger roles and I think the longer Fox waits, the less of a chance it is that he’ll even have time to do it. He is under contract though. I think our best bet now is a reboot. I think doing another live action movie would be a mistake. I just really wish Fox would just come out and say yes or no to a third movie!
LivelySparrow97: Personally, I’d rather see a TV show than any sort of film reboot. Then we might have a chance at seeing The Heroes of Olympus. It would be hard to picture anybody other than Logan Lerman as Percy Jackson though.
Kitkatgirl200: I think the main thing that killed the movies was the complete lack of respect for the story in the first movie. And then we got people that really seemed to understand what the books were about, but they got screwed over by previously established nonsense.
Rebecca: So in other words, I think we can all agree Percy Jackson will not continue with Logan Lerman as Percy. However, we can hold out hope for a reboot.
The lights fade.
Dramatic string music.
The single spotlight appears again on the lone body.
Watson, Irene, and Sherlock stand over the body.
