‘Dr. Horrible 2′ is Coming–Slowly But Surely

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog was judged by yours truly to be the nerdiest musical ever made. If you have not seen it, then look it up…NOW. It’s only about 45 minutes long–I’ll be here when you’re finished.

Aren’t you glad I made you do that? Want more? Of course you do. And while it’s old news that a sequel is in the works, there hasn’t been many updates from the filmmakers. Which is understandable, as Joss and Jed Whedon have been ridiculously busy as of late.

Follow the jump to read what Jed had to say to Entertainment Weekly about the further adventures of Nerddom’s favorite lovelorn evil scientist:  (more…)

Cameron Talks ‘Avatar’ and How it Will Be ‘Godfather’ Epic

- 12-16-13Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

So James Cameron is talking again about the Avatar sequels. You’d think with two years till the scheduled release of the first movie in the Avatar sequel trilogy that Cameron would be busier putting the whole thing into actual production rather than talking about it some more, but here doing more press. No big deal, because Cameron’s always got something interesting to say, and this time he kind of stepped in it when he dared to imply that his trilogy could be compared to The Godfather. I realize this isn’t as bad as if he were to say “the original Star Wars trilogy,” but it’s still quite a statement. (more…)

If you’ll recall, in June it was announced that Warner Bros would be trading away the rights to both the next Friday the 13th flick, and the sequel to the South Park movie for a portion of Chris Nolan‘s upcoming Interstellar to Paramount. A condition of the deal was that Paramount must produce and release an F13 sequel within 5 years. Soon after it was announced that a new Friday the 13th–with a found-footage angle (ugh) was in development…and then what happened?

Jack squat, that’s what–until now.

As Nerd Media has been eagerly reporting, Beetlejuice 2 is well on the way to being summoned forth into the land of the living. Star–and ONLY actor who could possibly play the “Ghost With The Most”–Michael Keaton and director Tim Burton have both essentially confirmed their presence.

(and please remember my use of the word “essentially” if/when this information is denied/disproved)

Now it appears Winona Ryder is following suit.  (more…)

Michael B. Jordan Could Co-Star in ‘ID4′ Sequels

- 09-26-13Film Posted by James Daniels

 

Michael-B-Jordan-550x333

Friday Night Lights, The Wire and Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan is reportedly under consideration by director Roland Emmerich for a role in his Independence Day follow up: ID Forever, Part 1

The Wrap reports that the actor (who is also being eyed for the new Fantastic Four reboot, AND–allegedly–Star Wars Episode VII) met with Emmerich, who liked him very much. While nothing has yet to be said regarding who Jordan would play, it seems likely he’d take on the role of Dylan–stepson of Will Smith‘s Capt. Steven Hiller (who reportedly will not be returning for the sequels). Emmerich has previously suggested that Dylan would play a major role in the new films, which involve the aliens returning for some payback to an Earth that has been rebuilt with salvaged extraterrestrial technology.

ID Forever, Part 1 is scheduled for release in Summer 2015, though Emmerich has suggested it may get pushed back to 2016, to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Independence Day‘s release.

Will Smith to Return for ‘Independence Day 2′ After All?

- 09-05-13Film Posted by NickBungay

It’s been seventeen years since aliens invaded America and were welcomed to “Earf” by the fist of Will Smith and the computer talents of Jeff Goldblum in Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day. With a sequel, the brilliantly named sequel Independence Day 2, announced this past June you would expect the starring cast to return, but right from the start Emmerich confirmed Smith would not be coming back.

Well, it now appears that Emmerich might have convinced Smith to return. In an interview with Digital Spy, the ID director said he’s arranged a meeting with Smith about hopefully reprising his role in the sequel saying:

“I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen,”

He’s not lying there. Independence day ensured Will’s credit as an action star after his work in Bad Boys and it would be a bit of a shame not to see him return for the sequel. Even if he were to return in a smaller, possible cameo role towards the middle or end of Independence Day 2 it wouldn’t feel right to not have him included.

What do you think of the possible return?
