Hollywood’s retro-love is still in full swing, even if it takes some projects a little longer than others to complete the process from concept to completion.  Long-time writer and director Chris Columbus is out on the press tour for his new movie, Pixels, that opens this week (look for my review at Noon EDT Wednesday here on the site), and he gave us media types a little more info on where the reboots of two major 1980s products – Goonies and Gremlins – stand.



Found filed under LET’S DO THIS, comes news of Double C tackling the 2 G’s! Can we be honest here? When you’re named after a famous explorer, life expects you to be super ambitious. That’s Chris Columbus‘ burden in life: to get awesome things done. What’s he doing awesome these days? Oh just working on two movies that absolutely need to get made: Gremlins and Goonies sequels.

It’s been a long-ass time since the first Goonies flick hit the screens and there have been rumors flying around in recent years about the possibility of a sequel coming. Now it looks like the vague rumors may be solidifying into maybe-possible rumors. The director of the original, Richard Donner, has stepped up and said that a return to the Goonies is on its way.

Jonah Hex Trailer


Josh Brolin firing a stick of dynamite from a crossbow and mowing bad guys down with chainguns mounted on a horse, Now that sounds like something straight out of my writing. Makes me tingle all over. You throw in some Meghan Fox,  John Malkovich and more explosions then a Michael Bay film and you got DC’s new entry into the superhero lineup.
Set to be released on June 18th, a lot of people may not be super familiar with Jonah Hex. He is a lot like Ghostrider in description and storyline, with some reversal of course, for instance in the scene where the dead, lifeless dude is in the cage and Jonah touches him, giving him life. On the contrary Ghostrider would do the opposite and drain them black. I think the film looks nice and gritty, with a solid Josh Brolin always doing what he does, delivering a stoic, brilliant performance ala’ Brand in the Goonies.
Jonah Hex Never Says Die.
