Industry News and Rumors:


01) The Great Gatsby will arrive on Christmas day 2012. (If we make it that far, right?)

02) Shawn Levy is attached to direct a project called The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto, which is a prequel to Pinocchio.

03) Ashley Miller and Zach Stentz (X-men: First Class) writers are officially on the Top Gun sequel. It’s said to bring Air Force pilots into present day. No word on who may or may not return.

04) Juan Carlos Fresnadillo was going to direct The Crow. Now he’s gone as well.

05) Here’s some video of destruction from Resident Evil: Retribution from Milla with some commentary.

06) Featurette of Breaking Dawn - Part 1.

07) Taken 2 will arrive October 5, 2012 and will have Rade Sherbedgia as the villain (the father of the villain in the first one).

08) Oscar Isaac will play the lead in the Coen brothers next movie Inside Llewyn Davis.

09) A more detailed look at Superman.

10) Patty Jenkins (Monster) will direct Thor 2, which will hit theaters November 15, 2013. Portman and Hemsworth will return.

11) Rob Brown (Finding Forrester, Coach Carter) has joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises in an undisclosed role.

12) Pacific Rim will arrive two months earlier on May 13, 2013.

13) Stop start stop start. Lone ranger has moved on again and Feb 12, 2012 is the expected start date for production.

14) February 14, 2013 is A Good Day to Die Hard.

15) Arnold, Stallone and Willis on set for Expendables 2 in expanded roles. Will also have Chuck Norris, Liam Hemsworth and Van Damme!

16) Some clips from The Adventures of Tin Tin.

17) Jim Carrey is looking to star opposite Steve Carell in Burt Wonderstone.

18) Geoff Johns is hopeful for a Green Lantern sequel. The current one cost 200 million plus marketing costs and has seen about 217 million worldwide so it’s seen as a failure for the moment. Dvd and blu ray come out soon so that should help.

19) Teaser and poster for The Devil Inside.

20) John Singleton may take over as director for the new Tupac movie.

21) Interesting article concerning Warners acquiring Rome, Sweet Rome (user submitted, thank you very much).


01) Boardwalk Empire will get a 3rd season.

02) Do you like The Ringer, Heart of Dixie and Secret Circle? Ok you get a full season.

03) Like CW and Netflix? Fine, you’ll see CW shows on instant stream.

04) Here’s a look at Keifer Sutherland’s Touch.

Jesus Christ, if it's true that Chuck Norris will be in Expendables 2 the world really is going to end in 2012.

SO EXCITED for the Gatsby movie. It is by far my favorite book and I even have plans to get a sleeve based on the book. I have enough faith to believe it will be a good movie.

I'm pretty excited to see how they work the Skrulls into it. And apparently it's leading into either the secret war or civil war for Avengers 2.

The nerd in my is going fucking apeshit.

Sequels that will suck: Thor 2, Taken 2, Green Lantern 2

First movies that sucked: Thor, Taken, Green Lantern

Great Gatsby is gonna be amazing though, and new Die Hard news is always welcome.
