This article discusses what to expect from the next installment of the Shawshank Redemption movie. It covers whether or not it's going to be a remake, a sequel, or a prequel to the movie. If you want to be informed about any new developments in the Shawshank Redemption film franchise, I suggest that you read this article right now.

The new movie will most likely be called 'The Shawshank Redemption 2', although there is a chance that it may actually be a prequel to the first movie. The idea for a sequel came from Joel Schumacher, the director of the first movie. When asked about a sequel, he said:

"Well, of course, we'll make a sequel but not immediately. We want to do our own thing and let people understand why we chose to make a sequel to the original. That will give people more appreciation for our story."

The sequel may be a remake, a prequel, or a reboot, depending on how you look at it. Based on Schumacher's statement, the only way to really tell what's going to happen with the next movie is to wait and see what happens. And when you see the movie, you will realize that the movie wasn't meant to be a prequel or a sequel at all.

In the movie, we can see how Frank (Bruce Willis) had been wrongfully incarcerated in the first place. We also saw the brutality that criminals could inflict on one another. However, the movie wasn't about this, it was actually about redemption.

We were introduced to Red (Morgan Freeman) who wanted to change his past and redeem himself. He wants to go back to prison so he can be with his daughter. However, despite his best efforts, he gets locked up again, this time in a rural prison.

We are told that in order to escape, Red must find the key to the First Mississippi prison and bring it back to the prison. With the help of his lawyer and Reggie Ledoux (Samuel L. Jackson), Red sets out to complete his mission.

The Shawshank Redemption movie will most likely continue where the previous movie left off. The gang in prison is going to continue to hold everyone hostage. The actors have all been busy shooting scenes that are part of the storyline for the second movie.
