Cancelled Movies. Wiki

After the release of The Poseidon Adventure, Irwin Allen had conceived of a sequel that was different than the final product.


Unlike the actual sequel, the original plot would have been about the survivors being trapped in a crashed tunnel train while heading to testify the disaster. Following the crash, the survivors must find an escape.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. It would have been impossible to make a movie without the Poseidon.


  • The script was rewritten.
  • The actual sequel would receive negative reviews from critics and audiences. And a poor box office.
  • Elements of the original plot would end up in the 1996 film Daylight with Sylvester Stallone.
