Talking to Wall Street, Jon Feltheimer has hinted that he'd happily call action on more instalments or spin-offs from the series, if the authors of the original books approved.

"There are a lot more stories to be told, and we're ready to tell them when our creators are ready to tell those stories," Feltheimer told Variety

Feltheimer has also re-ignited the ongoing debate about the speed in which movies make their home-entertainment debut.

It's long been a debate among studio heads about how to speed up the process and stop piracy by ensuring everyone has access to movies a lot quicker than the current release climate, as well as catching more parents who are unable to get to the movies because of commitments to the kids. He's optimistic a deal could be struck which could help save Hollywood.

"If it were possible for us all to get in a room together and have exhibitors and studios and digital distributors all get in a room together, I've seen enough research to really believe that it's really something that would be good for everybody," said Feltheimer.
