It's not possible for Haggis to get any license. They've sold 18 pinball machines.

Settle down people.

As an aside, isn't it funny the staying power that advertising for bad sequels to memorable movies have had over the decades?

Both "just when you though it was safe" (Jaws 2) and "They're Back" (Poultergeist 2) have survived in the pop culture consciousness for 40 years, while the terrible movies are forgotten.

Quoted from TreyBo69:

More than Dutch when they licensed TBL from Universal
Pretty sure they mostly care about the check cashing. There's all sorts of Jaws merchandising crap. It was one of the first major movies to get heavily into licensing random junk.

Dutch had an industry veteran securing the Licensing for them. Licensing games isn't as easy as just snapping your fingers and cutting a check.

You need to convince them you know what you are doing and won't embarrass the brand. Some Australians nobody's ever heard of swinging hammers around...I just don't know man.

Quoted from TreyBo69:

So...Haggis could pay Roger Sharpe to help...
It's not a Herculean task to go hire a consultant to get it done. It's just a question of having the capital to pay for it.

Do you think they have the capital to pay for it?

Quoted from Manimal:

"Back in the water" quote was JAWS 2....they are signifying a remake.

Jaws 2 is bad but it's still the best Jaws sequel by a large margin. It's got some memorable moments.

My favorite one is probably when Jaws eats the helicopter.

Quoted from screaminr:

How many games had jjp sold when they got WOZ .
They say The Beatles was a million-dollar licence , let's just say Jaws is half of that , so if they put $1,000 on each game and limited it to 500 games , they would sell them easily and cost would be covered .

Lol @ haggis making 500 games
