New direction means Gore Verbinsky is out and the choreographer turned directer Rob Marshal is being sought after. Verbinsky has hacked and slashed his way to 2.67 Billion worldwide gross, so it is a very strange move for the company to make this move. Marshall has directed the films “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Chicago,” which won six Oscars, including best picture. So, who knows, it’s a mystery, I mean, its still gonna swell with white hype and break huge, but you never change a horse in midstream.
Also it has been said that Orlando Bloom will not be returning. I guess the way they tied up part 3, it is reasonable, but they offered it to him and he was roughly quoted aas saying he wanted to spend more time with his supermodel girlfriend….and Lennon said the same about Yoko….
