Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel

Ridley Scott Talks Alien Prequel
Ridley Scott is going back to where it all started and will direct the prequel to his "Alien".  He recently spoke to MTV and gave us some great insight to the upcoming film.

Here's what Scott had to say about where the production is currently at.

As we speak, I've got a pile of pages next to me; it's like the fourth draft. It's a work in progress, but we're not dreaming it up anymore. We know what the story is. We're now actually trying to improve the three acts and make the characters better, build it up to something [we can shoot]. It's a work in progress, but we're actually making the film. There's no question about it, we're going to make the film.
He goes on to explain that he is working on getting the screenplay complete so they can find out how much is will cost to make the film. He's also got people working on the films designs. The story is set, the characters are in place, and here's hi…

Bret Michaels In Serious Condition

Bret Michaels In Serious Condition
Bret Michaels is in critical condition suffering from a brain hemorrhage, his publicist said Friday. Joann Mignano confirmed a report on People magazine's website Friday that said the former Poison frontman was rushed to intensive care late Thursday after a severe headache. The report said doctors discovered bleeding at the base of his brain stem.

Mignano said tests are being conducted and that no further information was available.

The 47-year-old reality TV star had an emergency appendectomy last week after complaining of stomach pains. He said on his website that though the surgery "has taken its toll," doctors expected him to make a full recovery.

Michaels starred on the VH1 dating show "Rock of Love" and is a contestant on Donald Trump's NBC reality show, "The Celebrity Apprentice."

Trump said in a statement Friday that he was "deeply saddened" to hear of Michaels' condition.

Green Hornet Pushed Back And Going 3D

Green Hornet Pushed Back And Going 3D
Another film will be converted to 3D. Sony has announced that they will release the upcoming  Green Hornet film in 3D. The studio also  announced that the film is being shifted from a December release to January.

If you saw Warner Bros. Clash Of The Titans and were disappointed with the 3D conversion then you might be disappointed in this upcoming film. They are using the same technique for Green Hornet.

Since director Michel Gondry and star/writer/producer Seth Rogen have yet to start editing the film, and none of the visual effects have been put in place, the 3D process can happen a lot more naturally than taking a finished movie and painting over it in green and red (that’s how they did it on Clash, right?)

"He always kind of shot it having the possibility of having it in 3D in mind," Sony’s Rory Bruer said of Gondry in a statement. "It's got a lot of depth and amazing visuals." And the move isn't necessarily a dang…

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Is Ready For Some "Protection"
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is attached to star in the action-thriller "Protection," replacing Clive Owen in the lead role, an individual familiar with the project told TheWrap.

Simon West was previously attached to direct Paul Walker in the project, which was formerly set up at Warner Bros.

The script by Brandon Noonan follows a disgraced former Special Forces soldier who takes on a Mexican cartel in an attempt to rescue and protect a judge's 21 year-old daughter, who has been targeted by the cartel for agreeing to testify against one of its members after she witnesses her father's murder. The action will reportedly play out on both sides of the border.

Friday The 13th Sequel Is Dead

Friday The 13th Sequel Is Dead
Jason is really dead?  You can never say never with this guys but it sure looks like there will not be a sequel to the 2009 Friday the 13th remake.

@Mayroth_Tucker3's tweet asking Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller, "Hows the F13 sequel coming along?"

Fuller replied,
"it is dead- not happening."
Bummer news after hearing that New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. were aiming to have the film in theaters for August 13, 2010.

BD checked in with Fuller who added,

"Right now there is no movement on Friday 13th: Part 2." Please Leave A Comment- Source-BD

Kristen Stewart Replacing Angelina Jolie In Wanted 2?

Kristen Stewart Replacing Angelina Jolie In Wanted 2?
Kristen Stewart better hop her ass into the gym if she wants to tackle this role. I just don't see her as a bad ass assassin, but I have been wrong before.

Kristen Stewart maybe replacing Angelina Jolie as the female lead in the Wanted sequel along side James McAvoy. Not a whole lot to go on now. Our insider says Kristen was approached to fill Jolie's hot-woman void in the franchise and met at least once with Timur Bekmambetov, the director of the series.

Kristen is set to start filming Breaking Dawn possibly as early as October, while the Wanted follow-up was originally slated to start shooting around the end of August.

No production date has been set in stone for the final Twilight flick(s), which is making it difficult, we're told, for many of the actors involved in the vampire franchise to figure out their schedule allowed for outside projects.

Who isn't a fan of the Bad Boys films? Well we got an update on what might or might not be happening.  And please please do not make this film in 3D, I know it's trendy right now to make films in 3D, but not this film.

 "It's real realistic," the comedian revealed , addressing rumors that he'll re-team with Bay and the former Fresh Prince once again. "We've talked about 'Bad Boys 3.' "
"Any time you can get Big Willie to come out and talk about doing a third installment of a hot movie like 'Bad Boys,' you have to take notice," Lawrence explained. "I met with Michael Bay, and he said he's onboard too — so it's real."
Writer Peter Craig is putting together a script for Columbia, and the "Bad Boys" team is ready. Now all they need to do is get the green light from Jerry Bruckheimer then it is really real.

Shrek Forever Clip Featuring Overweight Puss In Boots

Shrek Forever Clip Featuring Overweight Puss In Boots
The sight of a tubby, bloated, lazy Puss In Boots (or rather, Puss With A Pink Ribbon) is a chucklesome one and it’s obvious that Antonio Banderas had fun playing the overweight, under-inspired former hero.


Shrek (Mike Myers) has become a domesticated family man. Instead of scaring villagers away like he used to, the grown-reluctant ogre agrees to autograph pitch forks. Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre," Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking dealmaker, Rumpelstiltskin (Paul McCartney). Shrek suddenly finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where ogres are hunted, Rumplestiltskin is king, Donkey (Eddie Murphy) is an intellectual, Lord Farquaad (John Lithgow) is still alive, and Shrek and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) have never met. Now, it's up to Shrek to undo all of Rumpelstiltskin's mischief in the hopes of saving his friends, restoring his world, and recl…

Men In Black 3 To Be Shot In 3D

Men In Black 3 To Be Shot In 3D
Barry Sonnenfeld told Showbiz 411 that in fact “Men in Black 3-D” is ready to roll. Will Smith has signed on, Tommy Lee Jones is in, and a script is awaited.

Sonnenfeld says it is so. Why not? Everything else is, and this is one movie that might be cool in the process.

Nevertheless, you can bet Sony is juiced to get this puppy moving since “Spider Man 4″ fell apart. They are in desperate need of a blockbuster for next Memorial Day May 2011. And “Men in Black” is like money in the bank.

Avatar 2 Will Go Under Water In Pandora

Avatar 2 Will Go Under Water In Pandora
We have some interesting news about Avatar and it's sequel. First up James Cameron says a longer version of the film will be back in theaters in August -- and that the franchise will return with a seagoing sequel.

Cameron outlined where he sees the adventures of Jake, Neytiri and the rest heading in future films.

“We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film.
“Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rainforest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.”The sequel, according to Cam…

Samuel L. Jackson Confirmed For Captain American And Not Thor

Samuel L. Jackson Confirmed For Captain American And Not Thor
Our friends over at Latino Review sent out super reporter 'El Guapo' is his name (make sure to follow him on Twitter, the guy is pretty witty,)  to cover the press junket  for the upcoming film "Mother and Child" which stars Sam Jackson and you know what was on everyone's mind and my man got down to business to find out.

Here is his interview with Mr. Jackson:

Are you happy with Nick Fury's role in Iron Man 2?

Jackson: I'll tell you at the junket.

Are you disappointed you/re not going to London for that?

Jackson: Actually, I had a plan to go to London, I had two suits I had to pick up so I was looking forward to going there so I could pick up my suits. Go to this West Indian restaurant that I really like. So I'm sorta bummed I won't be there. But I just got out just as the volcano was erupting. Got out before they shut everything down or I wouldn't be here today.

Well I know you've…

Next James Bond Film Delayed

Next James Bond Film Delayed 
Don't hold your breath for the next James Bond film, looks like it's been put on hold for the time being. Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, today announced they have suspended development on the next James Bond film previously scheduled for release 2011/2012.

"Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on 'Bond 23' indefinitely. We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of 'Bond 23,'" stated Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli jointly.
EON Productions have produced twenty two James Bond films since 1962.

HIGH School Trailer

HIGH School Trailer
First off I would consider this to be a Red-band trailer with all the F bombs that they let off during the trailer.  So you have been warned.  HIGH School debuted The Sundance Film Festival. And wouldn't you know it, they released the trailer on 4:20.  How ironic since the premise of the film surrounds marijuana.

The trailer give you a hit of what the movie is about without giving to much away.

The film was directed by John Stalberg, and stars Adrien Brody, Michael Chiklis, Colin Hanks, Sean Marqutte, and Matt Burke.




Synopsis:

So it’s the end of the school year, and smarmy Principal Gordon (Michael Chiklis) has suddenly instituted a zero-tolerance crusade against his nemesis, the reviled marijuana. A mandatory drug test for all students is to be administered, failure of which will result in immediate expulsion. Normally, this would be of no consequence to straight-arrow valedictorian Henry Burke, except he just tried ganja for the very first time. With his col…

He is hired to track down Quentin Turnbull, with whom he shares a troubled past. Early rumors emerged about a zombie army or Quentin trying to rewin the war, but these were dismissed when producers said "Quentin is more of a terrorist upset about the outcome of the war not someone trying to fight and rewin it."

Kick-Ass Slays The "Dragon"

Kick-Ass Slays The "Dragon"
As of Sunday night I was pretty nervous that Kick-Ass lost the number one spot to "How to Train Your Dragon".  It looks like it was a close race but Kick-Ass ended up on top.  Not taking anything away from Dragon, which was a great film.

If you haven't seen the movie you need to make a trip out to the theaters and spread the word. I am really hoping that word of mouth about this film will give this movie legs with all the new films coming out.

Despite preliminary reports, "Kick-Ass" took home the top spot at the domestic box office.

Grossing $19.8 million, Lionsgate's superhero action pic edged DreamWorks Animation's 3D kid pic, "How to Train Your Dragon" ($19.6 million) in a closely contested race.

Gatchaman / G-Force Production Trailer

Gatchaman / G-Force  Production Trailer
Being raised in Japan, I have very fond memories of Gatchaman, watching the show, and playing with the toys as a kid. There has been talk about this film being made since 2007, when TMNT director Kevin Munroe and writer Paul Dini had a say in the project until they left due to creative differences.

The trailer does get your hopes up for an upcoming film, but I wouldn't get to excited. Reason I say that is Imagi Studios was to put out this film but got shut down in February of this year. So unless another studio picks this film up, I just don't see it happening.



Originated in Japan in the early 1970s as the television series “Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.” Aired in the U.S. as “Battle of the Planets” and “G-Force,” it soon became a widely popular syndicated TV series.
The story is set in a future world grappling with environmental and technological issues and it focuses on five reluctant heroes whose remarkable genetic code makes them …

Star Wars Saga Coming To Blu-Ray
The film that the entire world wants to see on Blu-Ray is coming.  Lucasfilm Director of Fan Relations Steve Sansweet, at the Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this weekend, revealed great info for the whole world.

“We have been at work for a couple of years working on – I won’t call it the Ultimate Set because we keep finding stuff – but, a very full set of all six movies on Blu-ray with lots of extra material,”“We’re finding all kinds of scenes from dailies that have never been seen before. Beyond all of those things that you know about… there are some real treasures.”
I know this is one Blu-Ray that most people would be willing to buy, and now that we have news it's coming out\,You ask how soon.

Steve tells us:

“it won’t be in the too distant future.”
My guess it will be in stores around Thanksgiving or Christmas of this year. A fanboy can hope. Right?

Stan Lee's Thor Cameo Revealed
Stan Lee has had a cameo in every Marvel produced film, and Thor is no different.  We got news from fanboyweb what his cameo will be in the upcoming Thor film. Here’s the description of the particular scene:

Thor’s hammer ( Mjolnir ) is found in the middle of a road somewhere inside a crater by the army. The Army try’s to remove it but can’t because it’s way too heavy. They decide to bring in a truck to help. The army men tie Thor’s hammer to the back of the truck with chains hoping to pull it of the road. The truck driver accelerates to pull the Hammer. The back half of the truck falls apart from the front and the front keeps going. Finally,there’s a focus on the driver it reviled to be Comic Legion Stan Lee.

Sacha Baron Cohen To Play Walter Mitty?

Sacha Baron Cohen To Play Walter Mitty?
The next twist in the long development of a remake of The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty has just struck Hollywood – Sacha Baron Cohen is the latest name rumored to be starring in the film, according to Pajiba.

Adapted from 1947’s Danny Kaye comedy, Walter Mitty is one of those movies that attracts major talent, but can’t ever seem to make it to the screen. First mooted in 1994 with Jim Carrey starring for New Line, it’s been passed like a brightly wrapped present at a child’s birthday present between studios and directors, with Paramount and DreamWorks both involved, Ron Howard briefly attached and Steven Spielberg making it one of the 73,000 films he’s planned to direct over the years.


Carrey dropped out, Owen Wilson became attached, and Spielberg just couldn’t find the time (he is, after all, a very busy man). And not to mention the screenplays – half the script doctors in LA and beyond have had their paws on it.

Now 20th Century Fox, which has …
