NEWS ROUNDUP Ver 4
WARNING!! POSSIBLE SPOILER AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE
Hampton Fancher is in talks to return to write the sequel to Blade Runner, which he helped write the original as well. Now there has been talks about the sequel or reboot for the film for years it's nice to see that something might come from it finally. And that finally has been confirmed as being a sequel with Ridley Scott possibly returning to direct as well!
With work already starting on the Avengers' sequel, it turns out that the studios wouldn't mind having Joss Whedon back to direct again. I myself would love to see this happen, yet I also know if the studio doesn't like the asking price Whedon asks for they'll get a different director. I hope that doesn't happen as we won't have scenes like Hulk cold-cocking Thor out of blue because their earlier fight which added so much levity to a very serious situations in the film.
THE GREEN INFERNO
Eli Roth it seems is getting back into directing this fall once his new film starts shooting in South America. The plot isn't out yet, but I'm sure it won't be long before we know the story.
SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
Even though production hasn't even started on the Sin City sequel, the studio has already given it a release date. So I guess we can say that all the principles are in place to start right away. Oh, the release date is October 4, 2013.
THE 4TH REICH
What type of week would it be without mentioning a Nazi zombie film. This one has been in development hell for over years but it looks like it's finally going forward into production. As a side note since Sean Bean just joined the cast I think I can safely say that it seems like Bean will add to his impressive list of in movie deaths once again, but I don't care because it's Sean Bean. He got stabbed last year and instead of going to the hospital like most people would do, the man instead went to the pub for drinks.I just have to say that is the definition of a bad-ass.
The online book by Hugh Howey about a future where the remnants of humanity live in a silo underground but the criminals all volunteer to go clean the air filters on the outside even though it's a death sentence and the sheriff who wonders why they all volunteer openly. Ridley Scott and Tony Scott bought the rights to make the movie based on Wool. I think I want to see it already just based on that.
For those that missed the more spoilerific thirty second promo, count your blessings as it without a doubt it spoils at least one bit in the film and I thank 20th Century Fox for pulling it almost right away. As you can see above the international poster for Prometheus has been released as well. Now I can't say if it really spoils anything but then again it seems the makers of the marketing campaigns for films just suck now as the usually spoil at least half the movies that come out or just don't get the films at all. The really interesting thing about the above poster though for those that didn't notice it is the date. It looks like America might get to see the film two days earlier maybe.
