Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (original plot)
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
- 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.
