If I stepped into a time machine and went to the year 2050, I would not be at all surprised to discover that Ben Hur Part 7 was just being released. Maybe it'll be the seventh sequel to the original, or the seventh sequel to a remake of the original, or the seventh sequel to a remake that was then retconned into the timeline of the another sequel they made to the original. It is now plausible. Don't believe me? We're getting a sequel to It's Wonderful Life is getting a sequel.
