We still don't have much of a read on 'Batman Vs. Superman' (or whatever they call it, it's currently listed as 'The Untitled Zack Snyder Super Hero Film') other than it seems to be a super-sized warm up for 'Justice League.' And with Jason Momoa is in talks to join the cast for an unknown role, perhaps it's actually the 'Justice League' movie after all.
One of 2012's most pleasant surprises was Christopher McQuarrie's 'Jack Reacher,' which starred Tom Cruise as the titular bad ass. As it was based on a series of books by Lee Child it seemed ready to spawn a franchise, but the film's modestly-hyped Christmas release suggested that Paramount didn't know if they had a winner. The film was a modest success, and now Paramount is working on developing a sequel.
Though we're still months away from the release of 'Fast and Furious 7' (which is scheduled to hit theaters July 11, 2014), series star Paul Walker has spoken about Universal's intentions for the franchise, and he seems convinced that there will be an eighth entry in the series.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties, it's possible that the original cast may no longer have a role in the production. Former Jedi Samuel L. Jackson has spoken to Mark Hamill about returning as Luke Skywalker, and revealed that Hamill hasn't spoken to Abrams.
The new studio model for sequels is to call your release date before you have a cast or crew, and often before you have a script. The latest film to get dated ahead of anything else substantial is 'Insidious 3,' which production company FilmDistrict previously announced would be happening after 'Insidious Chapter 2' opened to $41 million.
Though it isn't due out until July 2015, it seems that Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' (or whatever they eventually call it) has done some shooting, and is now auditioning people for the film. The latest scoop is that the film might feature Dick Grayson, also known as Robin or Nightwing.
So much of what's happening with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' should be taken with a grain of salt, but early word was that the film would focus on the children of Luke Skywalker and/or Han Solo and Leia (though expanded universe fiction suggests otherwise, it is unknown if she took his last name, or even if they got married). But the latest casting call suggests that J.J. Abrams and company may be going in a new direction.
The tie-in promotional hit single hasn't been as popular/successful as it once was outside of the Bond movies (anyone remember the Soundgarden song in 'The Avengers'?), but that's not stopping 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' from featuring the new single from Christian Aguilera. To help sell the movie (and the song "We Remain") there's a brand new TV spot.
Though the boom years of Hollywood remaking horror classics from the seventies and eighties seems to have come and gone, there are still some stragglers -- like the recent version of 'Carrie' -- that have yet to be redone. Today there was word of a new 'Pet Sematary,' and -- to keep in the Halloween spirit -- 'Sleepaway Camp' is now up for remaking.
