Trevorrow Not Directing STAR WARS EPISODE IX

Image
In what some would call a shocker, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow, who was attached to direct and co-write Star Wars Episode IX, has departed from the project.  Word has it that his vision didn't quite line up with what Disney and Lucasfilm had in mind.

The best guess as of right now is that Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi director) could be a logical substitute.

Image
After a slew of hopefuls, Gavin O'Connor has been chosen to write and direct Suicide Squad 2.

From Variety:
Gavin O’Connor is on board to write the sequel to “Suicide Squad,” and is also in talks to direct the film that stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Jared Leto.

The movie is a top priority at Warner Bros. and looks to be one of the two DC properties (the other being New Line’s “Shazam!”) to begin production next year. Given the ensemble’s busy schedule, the shoot wasn’t expected to start until fall of 2018. So while there’s still time, the studio is eager to get someone on board to pen a script.Suicide Squad 2 will most likely hit sometime in 2019.

My thoughts:
Back in the day, I absolutely hated JGTH.  But as time has passed and after a few more viewings, the film has definitely grown on me.

AMERICAN REUNION (2012)

Image
I've been on a bit of a teen comedy kick lately, which led me to rewatching the American Pie movies.  I'll get to recapping the others, but for now, this is 2012's American Reunion.

Breakdown:
Over a decade has passed and the gang return to East Great Falls, Michigan, for the weekend. They will discover how their lives have developed as they gather for their high school reunion. How has life treated Michelle, Jim, Heather, Oz, Kevin, Vicky, Finch, Stifler, and Stifler's mom? In the summer of 1999, it was four boys on a quest to lose their virginity. Now Kara is a cute high school senior looking for the perfect guy to lose her virginity to.

My thoughts:
This was definitely one of the few sequels that I was super excited for.  I love the characters and I love the movies.  And, really, AR is a great follow-up/conclusion to the series.
