I found this list somewhere on a hotline server, it looks like it came out a while ago. I doubt it is entirely accurate, as it is mostly based on rumors, but friends with studio connections have confirmed at least half of these as being real. Check it out, and I think you'll agree there seems to be too many sequels and movies based on video games coming out next year.
