NEWS ROUNDUP Ver 6
NEWS ROUNDUP Ver 6
In just the completely wrong category, the remake of The Exorcist has been green lit. But, it won't be in theaters. Instead it is going to be a mini-series on TV and concentrate more on the "emotional" impact of what is happening. Enough said of this one......
In some good news in response to the previous story, Gary Oldman has joined the cast of the Robocop remake. His role will be the creator of Robocop who has a moral dilemma between helping the machine find it's lost humanity and the needs of the corporation backing the project.
In some casting news for the now in production Thor 2, and movie that adds Mads Mikkelsen to it's cast automatically gets better right away. His supposed role would be for the Executioner, the constant companion to the Enchantress. For the Loki fans, he is scheduled to be in the film as well.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
On another Marvel comic movie front, there is rumor going around for a Guardians Of The Galaxy film now. The basis for the group is they came together after two back to back wars in the reaches in space left a void that is easily filled by conquerors to keep that from happening. I don't care what the team will be, but if they don't have Rocket Raccoon, the foul tempered, anthropomorphic, gun loving raccoon I'm not watching it!
Charlize Theron let slip in a interview recently that filming for Mad Max: Fury Road will start next month. I just have to say after this film has been in pre-production for the past five years, it's about damn time!
What looked like a nice thank you from Cartoon Network on April Fool's Day could have possibly been a test run for the return of Toonami starting tonight. Two new animes are joining the line-up as well. These are:
A young boy in the future is convicted of slaughtering his class and is sentenced to life imprisonment in a massive theme park like prison.
A cyborg with no memory of the past is on a quest to find out what happened to the world that has become full of poison and how the human race is almost extinct and how he might have caused it.
