Cancelled Movies. Wiki

In the mid-2000s, Nickelodeon Movies, Parkes/MacDonald Productions, Paramount Pictures, & DreamWorks Pictures wanted to turn Lemony Snicket A Series of Unfortunate Events into a movie franchise, with the first movie following the first three books. It is unknown how many sequels it would have gotten, but they were to likely follow the remaining ten books in the series.


The sequels would have followed the remaining ten books of the novel series.


  • Jim Carrey as Count Olaf
  • Emily Browning as Violet Baudelaire
  • Liam Aiken as Klaus Baudelaire
  • Kara and Shelby Hoffman as Sunny Baudelaire
  • Jude Law as Lemony Snicket

Why It Was Cancelled[]
