because there’s no formula Hollywood can’t beat into the ground

A sequel to Valentine’s Day had already been just about greenlit last week, before it raked in $63 million this past four-day holiday weekend, according to Mike Fleming at Deadline Hollywood:

Little wonder Warner Bros’ New Line is in love with the Garry Marshall-directed Valentine’s Day because of its formula of cramming more than a dozen stars into a film and keeping the budget below $50 million. Now I’m told there’s a sort-of-sequel underway. Valentine’s Day scribe Katherine Fugate has turned in a draft of New Year’s Eve, which Toby Emmerich and Richard Brener are reading this weekend, with Warner Bros bosses to follow shortly.

Now that the movie is a bit hit, that sequel is all but assured.

How long before we get Flag Day, Secretary’s Day, and Lazy Day?

This has been your WTF Thought for the Day.
