‘Iron Man 2’ Without Favreau?!?!

Looks like Marvel, the production company, is already starting to act like a production company. Out of the gate with the amazingly great and successful ‘Iron Man’, Marvel has greenlighted (greenlit?) a slew of their comic books to be adapted to films. And now that they’re running a full court press, it seems that they may be slightly more interested in the dollar than they are in the great stories and storytellers they have that put together the films that make them that dollar.

‘Indiana Jones’ 5?

‘Indiana Jones’ 5?

LucasGeorge Lucas knows a cash cow when he sees one. In an interview at Cannes, Lucas told a reporter in regards to an Indiana Jones 5:

“I haven’t even told Steven or Harrison this,” he said. “But I have an idea to make Shia [LeBeouf] the lead character next time and have Harrison [Ford] come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie. I can see it working out.”

Something’s got to pay for Lucas’s boat, right?

That line sent the cold “Star Wars prequels” shiver up my spine. But who knows? Maybe Spielberg knows how to keep Lucas in line (we’ll find out this Friday). Or, better yet, maybe Spielberg will just say no.

‘The Descent’ Gets a Sequel

‘The Descent’ Gets a Sequel

The DescentLooks like that cave has a few more stories to tell. Celador Films will be moving forward with a sequel to Neil Marshall’s horror-hit, ‘The Descent.’ This time Marshall will co-produce the film and the original film’s editor, John Harris, will make his directorial debut with this sequel.

The original film followed 6 women on a cave diving expedition and the personal tension that grows as they discover they may be trapped in there forever. Oh, and some visitors arrive, too. ‘The Descent’ was one of my favorite horror movies of 2006. Hopefully they can recapture some of the magic but make it original enough to stand on its own.

‘X-Files’ Sequel Has a Title!

‘X-Files’ Sequel Has a Title!

X-Files 2Oh fudge. Chris Carter has released the official title for the upcoming X-Files sequel and it is….’X-Files: I Want to Believe.’ That sound you hear is probably the air escaping from my happiness balloon. Now I didn’t really think the first movie’s title, ‘X-Files: Fight the Future’ was particularly inspiring, but at least it had some conviction to it. Despite what comes, they’re going to fight it. This title makes it sound like the movie is going to take a crack at something. Kind of a hit or miss thing. I want to believe, but who knows? Suppose something comes up and I can’t believe. I don’t want to make that kind of commitment.

Now I’m not totally deflated about this movie just because of the title. I’m still pretty excited to see what Chris Carter has up his sleeve. And it’s not that I don’t get the reference to the poster in the television show. But all the same, I think the title is just kind of blah. But I’ll keep hoping. I do want to believe.

Terminator 4 Release Date Announced

Terminator 4 Release Date Announced

Terminator 3 was a complete and utter disappointment.
Granted I’ve really only seen it once, and there have been times where things are better on the second viewing, but nothing about this film inspires me to view itagain.

That being said, on paper, there are a lot of possibilities that
the franchise could be rebooted by putting Christian Bale in
the role of John Connor in Terminator Salvation. However, with McG in the director’s seat, the geek in me is slightly nervous. Can you honestly trust someone with three letters in their name? But seriously, Charlie’s Angels, eh, maybe he can do it, but I would have loved to see someone much darker tackle this.

The story is under wraps, but it is part of a new trilogy, and follows John Connor leading a group of survivors, attempting to stop Skynet, who has destroyed much of the human race. The film is set to begin shooting in May for a Memorial Day Weekend 2009 release.
