Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Is Being Written As We Speak

Even before the release of the newest installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Disney has closed a deal with Terry Rossio to write the fifth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. This will be the first one without Ted Elliott, his screenwriting accomplice on the first four pictures. The studio is also making moves to bring back director Rob Marshall for his second voyage on the franchise. This comes as his first effort, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides , is moving through post-production for a May 20, 2011 release. I'm told that Johnny Depp has a deal structure to return for a fifth film that will clearly be drawn up for him to reprise Jack Sparrow, though it's too early to consider him locked. The studio and Jerry Bruckheimer are consumed with the fourth installment, but Rossio's deal is done. Please Leave A Comment- Source- Deadline

Alien Prequel Retitled Prometheus

The Alien prequel is dead and a new Ridley Scott project has been reborn. Fox has announced that instead of making a much-talked about Alien movie, the project has been reconfigured as an original sci-fi movie, titled Prometheus , with Scott still at the helm and with Noomi Rapace to star. Showing how serious it is about the movie, Fox has set a March 9, 2012 release date. Damon Lindelof is working together with Scott on the new script, which was originally written by Jon Spaihts and based on an idea by Scott. It was under Lindelof that the project morphed into something more original. “While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place,” said Scott in a statement. “The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the s

Dynasty Movie On It's Way

Somebody ought to call Joan Collins , because " Dynasty " creators Richard and Esther Shapiro are planning to bring the iconic nighttime soap opera to the big screen, the duo announced on Wednesday. The news comes on the heels of 20th Century Fox's DVD release of "The A-Team," the latest in a series of popular TV shows that have made the jump to features. That list also includes " Charlie's Angels ," " Starsky & Hutch ," " Sex and the City " and Sony's upcoming revamp of " 21 Jump Street ." “The time is right,” said Esther Shapiro. “Nostalgia has always been big, but we want to take it a step further. We want to go back to the beginning with these characters and use the film to trace their roots. We’re taking Blake Carrington back to his young manhood and when he met Alexis, and setting the movie in the 'Mad Men' era of the 1960s. It will give us the opportunity to start fresh, without the constra

The Kennedys To Air On DirectTV?

The Kennedys is an upcoming eight-hour miniseries chronicling the lives of the famous Kennedy family and the tragedies they have suffered. It will star Greg Kinnear, Katie Holmes, Barry Pepper and Tom Wilkinson among others. The miniseries was directed by Jon Cassar and was to be shown on History Television in Canada and on History in the U.S. in 2011. In January 2011 it was announced that the mini-series would not be shown on the American History channel and that a new American broadcaster is being sought. DirectTV has emerged as a potential savior for The Kennedys, the controversial miniseries that was dropped by the History channel. “We are considering the possibility but no decision has been made,” a DirectTV rep tells THR amid an online report that the network was in talks with Kennedys producers Muse Entertainment and Asylum Entertainment. If a deal happens, the satellite service would air the 8-part mini-series on its Channel 101, solidifying its status as something of

Charlie’s Angels Coming To ABC

Charlie’s Angels  will be coming to ABC next year. The pilot has been greenlit by the network. This move has been long expected, but now the project is firmly moving forward, along with Smallville writer-producers Miles Millar and Al Gough. The new modern-day version of the show will be set in Miami. The producers (Leonard Goldberg, Drew Barrymore, Nancy Juvonen), Sony Pictures TV and Flower Films will now dive into casting to figure out the tricky task of finding TV’s new Angels. We hear there’s an offer out to Mark Piznarski (Gossip Girl) to direct. Are you going to give this show a chance? Remakes have traditionally struggled to find viewers on broadcast, though CBS’ showed with Hawaii Five-0 that you can pull off a primetime hit with a classic title. And Angels is certainly on-brand for a network that has a strong female following with shows like Grey’s Anatomy and Desperate Housewives. But ABC is riding high this fall with its adaptation of another such property, "V,&q

Sources tell Heat Vision that Keira Knightley, Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel are due to test for roles in the Warner Bros. superhero tentpole in the next two weeks. Also testing are relative newcomers Kate Mara and Charlotte Riley . Hot British actress Gemma Arterton has also scheduled to test but, Arterton just landed the female lead in Paramount's Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and might now have scheduling issues. Dark Knight Rises needs to fill two big female roles, a villain and a love interest. Sources say one character is Talia , the daughter of villain Ra's Al Ghul , who was portrayed by Liam Neeson in Nolan's first Gotham-set crime pic Batman Begins. In the comic books, Talia is both Batman's lover and antagonist, ultimately siring his alter ego Bruce Wayne's

TRON 3 Could Be On It's Way Sooner Then Later

Aint it Cool News has confirmed a recent rumour from What’s Playing that a second “Tron” sequel is on it’s way to being greenlit. According to Harry Knowles, “ TRON Legacy ”, released in December to mixed reviews, is “set to cross $300 million worldwide” and “has proved, beyond a doubt that there is an audience that buys this science fiction fantasy.” But it’s not just the film that’s helped the brand biggen – the merchandise (those light cycles; action figures, and so on) and CD soundtrack (by Daft Punk) have also helped Tron’s case. “Disney is beginning to realize, TRON could be a franchise”, wrote Knowles. In December, What’s Playing’s Hollywood Insider column reported that the “creatives and execs involved in the latest film are pushing on under the assumption that the film will make a profit, and for that reason, they’re already brainstorming over the next sequel.” One of the ideas being tossed around for the next sequel includes incorporating the character of Yori, pla

Pictures Of Rooney Mara In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The first official photos of Rooney Mara ( The Social Network ) as Lisbeth Salander in David Fincher‘s take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has arrived thanks to W photo shoot. If you want to read the entire story head on over to W . “Before I read the book, I didn’t think I could do it,” Mara said. She was calling me from Zurich, where the production moved in early December. “I locked myself in a room for a week and read all three books, and decided I really wanted to be Lisbeth. But I thought I had no shot at it.” See more pictures after the Jump.. The script, which captures the novel’s bleak tone (its original Swedish title was Men Who Hate Women), was written by Academy Award winner Steven Zaillian, who wrote Schindler’s List, and it departs rather dramatically from the book. Blomkvist is less promiscuous, Salander is more aggressive, and, most notably, the ending—the resolution of the drama—has been completely changed. This may be sacrilege to some, but Zaillian h

Original Tron Blu-Ray Cover Art

Thehdroom got their hands on what could be the cover art for the upcoming Original Tron Blu-ray cover art. We have known since last fall that Disney is hard at work restoring the original 1982 Tron for Blu-ray Disc and that it would be released alongside Tron: Legacy on Blu-ray in either March or April of this year. While the Tron Blu-ray announcement is still a little ways off, I do have a little treat right off the grid to share this morning. Check out the cover art after the Jump.. Below is what will likely (though not 100% certain as the design could change before release) be the Blu-ray cover art for Tron: The Original Classic. From the cover you can see that Disney will be packaging Tron on Blu-ray with the DVD version and that it has been labeled a "special edition" release. I can't get into specifics right now as to what warrants Tron brandishing the "special edition" tag. I can say that Disney is taking this catalog release seriously and is exp

BOND 23 Set For 11/9/2012

Bond Is Back MGM is announcing that " BOND 23 " is set to go into production in late 2011 and today announced that the 23rd James Bond film will have a worldwide release on November 9, 2012 .  Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan. That script is being kept under wraps but the story begins after Quantum Of Solace leaves off. The reason for the 007 delay is this: Broccoli and Wilson had been in pre-production on Bond #23 for release in 2011 but then it took almost a year for MGM's future to sort itself out what with the failed auction sale of the studio, then the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and eventually Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking. Meanwhile star Daniel Craig filled in the time with various film commitments which he had to finish. The actor began work on the Hollywood remake of the Swedish original The Girl With The Drag
