Ben Affleck Is The New Batman!!!!! He’s Taking Over As The Dark Knight In 2015’s Man Of Steel Sequel!
Are you kidding us? We certainly hope not!!! And Argof**kyourself if U R!!!!
Because this is incredible!! This is AMAZEBALLZ!
Warner Bros. just announced that Ben Affleck will play Batman in next summer’s Man of Steel sequel!!
As sad as we are to see Christian Bale move on to greener pasturers, we’re totally …
Already set to spin-off a CBS series starring Ari Graynor, 2011’s Bad Teacher will now also get a sequel, because that’s what we demanded by ignoring at-best-middling reviews and giving it $ 216 million worldwide. Cameron Diaz is reportedly not yet signed on to continue her poor instruction, but director Jake Kasdan and writer Justin Malen are said to be developing with an eye for her return despite her–spoiler!–not being that bad nor a teacher by film’s close. She also didn’t get the chest enlargement she was considering. So, in summation, there will be a film about a completely reasonable guidance counselor with similarly adequate breasts. Can’t wait!
Only seven more months until Arnold Schwarzenegger shows us that learning computers, too, grow old to eventually die alone! Speaking to fanatics at TheArnoldFans(dotcom) (via), he has confirmed that the long-discussed fifth Terminator film will finally begin production in January, with Schwarzenegger starring “as the Terminator,” however that works.
Arnold also said he’s still planning another Conan movie and, most crucially, he’s been told he’ll be getting the script for his Twins sequel, Triplets, in just two weeks. “That character was a fantastic character,” Schwarzenegger added, referring to whoever his character is in Twins. It will hopefully be written in the script.
Following these reveals, the actor added, “I feel very proud of that. I feel very happy and I’m looking forward to doing those films.” For a man who provided the most insane audio commentary ever recorded, that’s still a pretty crazy thing to say.
It’s been just over a year since we heard that Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher was returning to script the sequel, offering hope that with director Ridley Scott, the two septuagenarians might recapture at least some of the magic they can remember of the original. But evidently that screenplay was not up to the high standards of the producers of Dude, Where’s My Car, P.S. I Love You, and What To Expect When You’re Expecting, because today brings news that Alcon Entertainment is working on bringing in Michael Green for a rewrite. Green recently did new drafts for Spielberg’s indefinitely postponed Robopocalypse and the Moses film Gods and Kings, and assuming this writer Michael Green is the same as this one, he’s dishearteningly one of several guys credited on Green Lantern. Plot details for the film aren’t known, but Harrison Ford is not expected to return. So there goes the theory Green will just be adding in variations of “I’m gettin’ too old for this runnin’ shit.”
In Sony’s first move in re-positioning their Crackle video service as the Hulu of warmly mocking poor hillbillies, the company today announced their first venture into feature-length films will be with a sequel to 2001’s Joe Dirt.
They’re reportedly calling the project “the first digital movie sequel to a hit motion picture”–dubious in both its ambition and claim, as the David Spade comedy wasn’t even really a hit. It opened at number four, and made only $ 30 million worldwide over its entire run. Its most notable, enduring accomplishment is the honor of sitting at the top of Ebert’s Most Hated list. Yet this won’t even be the first time someone has tried to mine more comedy from the literal and figurative piles of shit within Joe Dirt: back in 2010, TBS was developing the film into an animated series.
Despite the allure of doing it cheaper as Spawn of Dirt, Sony promises the sequel will again star Spade and, despite a dozen years having passed, “pick up where the last one left off,” before Joe’s inevitable decline into meth addiction.
Sony also promised a martial arts film with Jon Woo and sensei Danny Glover, and renewed Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, promising next season’s episodes to include Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman, and David Letterman. You know, if you’re into that sort of thing, where people talk like human beings and no one has a mullet wig.
Though Roland Emmerich has been keeping himself busy fucking up the White House with Channing Tatum, the director hasn’t forgotten his promise to let aliens once again fuck it up too.
Speaking to FilmStarts (via), Emmerich still sounded uncertain if his long-promised sequel(s) to Independence Day would not go quietly into the night, but he did offer some clues as to what the future holds if negotiations between 20th Century Fox and a reluctant Judd Hirsch ever do work out.
Firstly, there would be a pair of sequels, with the studio packaging them together in a deal that’s proving “a tough battle between the studio and the actors.” Second, while the director calls himself a “3D skeptic”–rather surprising, for a guy whose reputation is built upon CGI rubble–a plan is already in place to convert the films to 3D, allowing Will Smith’s welcome-to-Earth punches to truly permeate the audience. And finally, Emmerich offered up some titles to these would-be sequels: ID Forever, Parts 1 and 2! It’s unclear if perhaps a punny “ID4-Ever” may be the true intention, merely lost in translation, but either way: TODAY WE CELEBRATE OUR INDEPENDENCE DAY SEQUEL TITLES FOREVER.
Disappointing fans of the literary and big screen success “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” the planned sequel will not arrive in theaters until after 2013.
Screenwriter Steve Zaillian is still working on the script, halting further progress. No director has been attached to the project, but David Fincher, who directed the first film remains the first choice.
A source tells Entertainment Weekly that the movie is still moving forward, although there is no rush and no release date.
It’s shaping up to be a good week for those still clinging to the high-concept sci-fi-comedy glory of the late ’80s. Following news that an ALF movie is happening, now comes word that the long-promised, belated second sequel to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure is still somehow a real thing, and now has a director attached.
Alex Winter (Bill) assured us in March, original writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson have a script already completed, and Keanu Reeves remains more enthusiastic about the project than solemn photos of him eating a sandwich would imply. There is still bogus news, however: MGM, the studio that owns the rights to the characters, has yet to give the film the go-ahead. The package is now being shopped around to other studios in the hopes that they might strike up a co-financing deal with MGM that may finally secure a greenlight. In the meantime, keep thinking of outdated surfer slang that might be paired with a term for an escapade. Bill & Ted’s Tubular Shenanigans? Bill & Ted’s Heinous Hijinks?
This guy is getting pretty desperate to keep his chest exposed.
According to THR, the21 Jump Street star and brief G.I. Joe 2 presence Channing Tatum is in talks to star in and produce a film based on Life of Evel, the 2008 Evel Knievel biography from Stuart Barker. Tatum’s Iron Horse Entertainment partner Reid Carolin–last responsible for fleshing out the actor’s stripping anecdotes for Magic Mike–will write the script about the late stuntman famous for his 433 broken bones and willingness to drive motorcycles over things so that we didn’t have to.
And on the subject of Magic Mike, also we’re getting another one of those. With the male stripper film already grossing $ 70 million over its $ 7 million budget, Glamour (via) logically asked Tatum if a sequel was a possibility, to which he replied:
“Yes, yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger.”
This time Magic Mike is being tried for murder–in EUROPE! Or maybe they’ll figure out a way to work some more male stripping in. We’ll see. In the meantime, go save the White House, Channing Tatum.
