'The Ring 3D' In Talks

Image
This comes from Moviehole...A few months back Bloody Disgusting announced that development had started on a second sequel to [Gore Verbinski's U.S remake of] "The Ring".Today, Heat Vision added that the flick will be in..... 3D! (Yeah, I don't know why I just added an exclamation point there - maybe I should've just typed that whole last sentence in CAPITALS since that's usually someone's way of letting others know that they're pissed off with something - so I'm told by my fellow typists - and, well, I'm definitely not smiling about this seemingly unremitting 3D trend).

David Loucka (''Dream House'', ''House at the End of the Street'') has been tapped to write the screenplay for "The Ring 3D", with Paramount apparently aiming to attract more of a "Final Destination" (the 3D being the first tip-off, the second being the 'teen-centric' script Loucka's apparently working on) crowd t…

Dr. Gordon Returns In 'Saw VII'

Image
It has now been officially confirmed that Dr. Gordon will return in the seventh installment of the Saw franchise. Some of you, after so many sequels, may be asking yourself, "Who's Dr. Gordon?" Well, you have to go all the way back to 2004, in Saw I...remember, Dr. Gordon is the guy who sawed his foot off. Well, he's back!

This information was made available to me through the official, and annoying, Saw newsletter via e-mail.

'Friday the 13th Part 2' = Dead

Image
When asked about the long delayed sequel to Friday the 13th , Producer Brad Fuller responded (via twitter)...

"it is dead- not happening"

Bloody-Disgusting checked in with fuller who had this to say

"Right now there is no movement on Friday 13th: Part 2."

Robert Downy Jr. To Headline 'Wizard Of Oz' Spinoff?

Image
This bit of news comes from Moviehole...and it's pretty interesting as well...Robert Downey Jr is off to Munchkin Land. Maybe. Possibly.
The comeback King - whose "Iron Man 2" opens in a weeks time! - is being courted to star in director Sam Mendes' "Oz The Great and Powerful", a spin-off of the timeless classic "The Wizard of Oz", says Production Weekly.

In the flick, Downey would play 'The Wizard', a man who, like Dorothy, was apparently swept up from Kansas and plonked in the fantastical world of Oz. The film would explore how the humanly visitor came to power in the land of witches, unoiled tin-men and cowardly lions.

Mendes is attached to shepherd the next James Bond movie, but as you'll have read yesterday that's been put on hold for the time being, so this might potentially be the filmmaker's - and maybe Downey's - next gig.

'Star Wars Episode 7' In The Works?

Image
This utterly AMAZING news comes verbatim from Moviehole...Finally, the more dimish inmates of the South Naboo Penitentiary can discover what lay ahead for Luke, Leia, Han and pudgy Wicket after the events of "Return of the Jedi". The rest of us, being able to read and all, have known for years what happened to the Skywalker siblings and the rascally smuggler - Han and Leia, of course, produced twins (later Jedi's themselves), the rebels faced a further battle with the Empire - trying to save the planet Coruscant (the character of 'Wedge' plays a big part in this arc of the story), and Grand Admiral Thrawn replaces the recently-departed Darth Vader as the galaxy's big bad.

Despite his determination to exploit the "Star Wars" in any other which way, writer/director/producer George Lucas has sworn black-and-blue that he'll never put Episodes 7, 8 and 9 to film - no way, no how. Frankly, I'd say it's got more to do with Lucas's fear of a…

Geena Davis Talks A Little 'Beetlejuice 2'

Image
Geena Davis recently spoke to Moviehole about the possibility of a Beetlejuice sequel. This is how that article went...Out stumping her new film "Accidents Happen" in Sydney (where the Andrew Lancaster-directed comedy was shot), screen vet Geena Davis mentioned she'd be interested in hearing more about the oft-rumoured "Beetlejuice" sequel.
Davis, who played one-half of the recently-departed Maitland outfit (Alec Baldwin playing her hubby), says she'd be definitely keen to tap into her, er, 'spiritual' side again.
"It's funny, [another journalist] just asked me about a sequel to Beetlejuice - which, though I haven't heard anything about it, might be interesting", Davis told me yesterday. "I would do that!".
"Thing is, do ghosts age?", asks Davis. "Wouldn't we be stuck in the age we were? Alec [Baldwin] and I would have to look as we did then - who knows, maybe we could? I better get in touch with Tim B…

Jamie Kennedy To Return In 'Scream 4'

Image
The casting news for Scream 4 just keeps getting stranger and stranger. Back in 2008 it was rumored that Jamie Kennedy might be reprising his role as Randy in the third sequel to the mega-hit Scream, and just a few weeks ago Liev Shrieber was rumored. Remember, both of these characters met their maker in previous installments. Here's what CHUD is reporting...When Jamie Kennedy's Randy was killed in Scream 2 it was both a brilliant move - he was the audience identification character, and so we felt his death - and a bummer. I always thought that Randy was one of the better movie geek cliche characters, and his presence was missed in Scream 3.

But could he be back in Scream 4? Sources very close to the production tell me that the producers of Scream 4 are talking to Kennedy about returning to the franchise. The problem is that I can't get anyone to tell me how. Will it be Randy, back from the grave? Randy's twin? Or will the film be going meta, as some have suspected,…

Patrick Lussier Talks 'Halloween 3-D'

Image
Patrick Lussier recently spoke to MTV about his new movie Drive Angry. And, of course, the topic of Halloween came up...The film that we wrote took place, like, the next frame after Rob's 'Halloween II' ended and immediately went into stripping Michael Myers back to his John Carpenter roots," Lussier said, referring to the creator of the "Halloween" franchise. "That's what we did very quickly. And then you pick up the story a year later as Halloween rolls around again. Everybody's back in the fray. That was our goal.

'American Pie 4' Tidbit

Image
Here's a little news on American Pie 4, a direct sequel to American Wedding, courtesy of Moviehole and THR...In addition to writing the film, "Harold & Kumar" creators Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossber will be directing the fourth "American Pie" movie. As a consequence of the duo's anointment to the "Pie" reboot, they've had to hand the directing reigns on "A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas", filming this Summer, over to MTV alum Todd Strauss Schulson (Risky Business). Yummy.

'Look Who's Talking' To Be Remade

Image
And the remakes just keep on a-rolling...this comes from Pajiba...Funny thing about scoops: Breaking the story that 20th Century Fox was developing a movie based on the E*Trade talking babies yesterday actually had the effect of breaking loose another story. A related story. A story as bad as, but probably no worse than the E-Trade movie.

It is this: Neal Moritz (Prom Night remake, I Am Legend) is producing a Look Who’s Talking remake. Yes: The king of the talking baby movies is returning. The one that started it all, racking up nearly $300 million worldwide and spawning two sequels. They’re remaking it. Making it again. Doing it over.

Is there nothing sacred?

I think TK said it best after I told him about this: “Why would they remake Look Who’s Talking? Why? Didn’t we already have three perfectly shitty movies to live with?”

You can never have enough perfectly shitty movies, I guess. And now a whole new generation of parents can suffer the pain. And millions of children can see the…
