War of Gods, 300 Follow-Up, Hobbit, Cloverfield 2 and More!

For more info on the film... watch the interview.

The other bit of news is on "300." They announced they're working on a new Blu-ray edition of the film and they dropped a bomb... they're trying to make a sequel/prequel to 300.

At first I didn't believe them, but later in the night I spoke to Zack Snyder again (interview will be posted tomorrow) and he confirmed what they said. He said Frank Miller is working on a new story of some kind and if they all really like it they'll make it! Crazy news....I know!

We're almost exactly two years away from the release of Columbia Pictures' The Green Hornet on June 25, 2010, but the Sony-owned studio has already released the logo for the comic book adaptation that will star Seth Rogen in the title role. The action adventure, co-written by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, will bring to life the story of the masked fictional crime fighter and his similarly masked Asian manservant Kato.

Cohen Pulls Off Wild "Bruno" Sketch

Originally posted by Inactive User
Out filming his new comedy "Bruno", Brit comedian Sacha Baron Cohen managed to ensnare a former Israeli spy and a Palestinian academic into an interesting sketch reports The Sun.

Dressed in his gay Austrian fashion presenter persona, the comedian was granted an interview with the pair in Jerusalem's Old City under the guise of shooting a youth documentary.

During the interview he posed questions and statements about the Arab-Israeli conflict such as - "Why don't you settle the conflict with a time share on the land?", "When will you Jews return the pyramids?" and "Your conflict is not so bad. Jennifer-Angelina is worse".

The pair finally cottoned on to something being wrong when Cohen "made them hold hands for a crazy song about the war". Bruno will hit theaters on May 15th 2009.

Jon Favreau Signed for Iron Man 2
Originally posted by Inactive User
Deadline Hollywood Daily reports that director Jon Favreau has reached a deal with Marvel Studios to direct Iron Man 2, which is targeted for an April 30, 2010 release.

Robert Downey Jr. had a sequel clause in his contract so he's on board. We assume that Terrence Howard and Gwyneth Paltrow will return as well.

Budgeted for about $140 million, the first film has earned a massive $563.8 million worldwide.

Robert Downey Jr. is Sherlock Holmes!

Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) is set to star in Sherlock Holmes, the drama that Guy Ritchie will direct for Warner Bros. Pictures, says Variety.

Downey has committed to the film, which begins shooting in October, after Ritchie turned in a polish of the latest version of the script, written by Anthony Peckham.

Joel Silver, Lionel Wigram, Susan Downey and Dan Lin are producing.

The trade says that Sherlock Holmes will take advantage of Downey Jr.'s physical skills as the character displays brawn as well as brains.

The basis for the film is Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tales, but also the comic book "Sherlock Holmes."

With Downey aboard, the film will go into production before a comedy that just coalesced at Columbia Pictures, with Sacha Baron Cohen playing Holmes, and Will Ferrell playing his crime-fighting partner Dr. Watson.

Wanted 2 Already in the Works
Originally posted by Inactive User
Variety says that Universal Pictures has reupped Wanted producer Marc Platt for five years, keeping Marc Platt Productions on the lot through late 2012.

The deal comes as Platt begins work on Wanted 2 with director Timur Bekmambetov and writers Michael Brandt and Derek Haas.

For Wanted 2, Platt acknowledged that the creative team is still working on the challenge of continuing the story after most of the principal characters ended the original in no position for an encore. But the film was designed as a potential franchise, Universal production president Donna Langley said. The intention is to get James McAvoy back.

"The writers are at work already, and those creative discussions are taking place," said Platt, who is producing once again with Jim Lemley.

That duo also is teamed with Bekmambetov on a Universal adaptation of the Christian Gossett sci-fi graphic novel The Red Star, which has a script draft by Matthew Sand.

Platt also just set up a remake of the 1973 rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar, and Platt and the studio are taking formative steps toward a screen adaptation of "Wicked," the stage musical that Universal co-finances and Platt produces with David Stone. Book writer Winnie Holzman will write the script.

Reeves, Wachowskis Re-Team For "Plastic"?
Originally posted by Inactive User
Keanu Reeves and the Wachowski Brothers may be re-teaming for a film based on the comic character "Plastic Man" reports CHUD.

The talk comes from a Berlin radio interview with producer Joel Silver about the upcoming action feature "Ninja Assassin".

Silver apparently said that "Reeves will be playing Eels O'Brien (the real name of Plastic Man)" and that the Wachowskis haven't chosen a project to follow-up the flop of "Speed Racer" making this the likeliest possibility.

The brothers shopped a script about the character, a man suffering an accident allowing him to stretch his limbs and body to superhuman shapes, around town back in the 90's.

"Lost Planet" Game Becomes Film

Warner Bros. Pictures is adapting Capcom's hit video game "Lost Planet" reports Variety.

Released early last year, the game revolves around an expedition to an ice planet that harbors an energy source with the potential to save mankind.

David Hayter ("Watchmen") will pen the screenplay. The game sold over two million units and a sequel is believed to be in the works.

Capcom is also developing new film versions of their games "Street Fighter" and "Onimusha".

Leterrier Talks "Titans" Remake
Originally posted by Inactive User
Louis Leterrier ("The Incredible Hulk") talked with ECranLarge about the early stages of his new project - the "Clash of the Titans" remake.

The good news is that he's a big fan of the previous work and sounds like he wants to honor it. He called director Stephen Norrington ("Blade," "LXG") who was reluctantly attached and asked his permission to take over helming duties.

Leterrier says the film will not be shot green screen or CG-stylized ala "300", saying "it will be photo realistic" and much of it will serve as a homage to stop-motion pioneer Ray Harryhausen who was responsible for the unforgettable work on the 1981 original.

He confirms that the Kraken will definitely be returning, but also says there will be differences - namely setting up the film as the first in a potential franchise using Perseus as the hero to take on other Greek mythological stories.

The aim is to do the story with a new point of view, not a direct remake but a new version - much like his "Hulk" and Ang Lee's "Hulk" are different takes on the same character.

As for the status, he's working with Lawrence Kasdan on the script right now so the project remains a while off. No mention if the acclaimed Medusa sequence (seen below) will be redone:

Woody Harrelson Joins "2012"

The story deals with an apocalypse in the year 2012 which coincides with the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21st 2012.

Harrelson says his character is "a sort of modern version of the Greek Cassandra, a prophet nobody believes... I play a guy who's been talking for a long time, the whole world thinks he's crazy. But he's been talking that there's gonna be hell to pay for what's been going on ecologically and everything."

He joins John Cusack, Danny Glover, and Amanda Peet in the release which begins filming shortly in Vancouver.

The storyline is being kept under wraps, but stars John Cho and Kal Penn are expected to reprise their roles as the potheads as the studio has options on the actors for the third installment.

Greg Shapiro will return as producer. Warner Bros. will likely distribute the third "Harold and Kumar."

Aronofsky Officially On "Robocop"
Originally posted by Inactive User
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM) has signed Darren Aronofsky to direct and David Self to write a new installment for its "RoboCop" franchise. Aronofsky, the director of The Fountain, and Self, the writer of Road to Perdition, make a formidable creative team, fast tracking the RoboCop motion picture and spotlighting it as one of the most anticipated new films for 2010.

The announcement was made today by Mary Parent, Chairman, Worldwide Motion Picture Group, MGM. In making the announcement Parent said: "Darren is undeniably one of the most talented, original and visceral film makers, and David is one of the greatest writers in Hollywood. All of us at MGM couldn't be more excited."

Phoenix Pictures' Mike Medavoy, Arnold Messer, Brad Fischer and David Thwaites will produce "RoboCop." Cale Boyter, Executive Vice President Production at MGM will oversee the project for the studio.

Phoenix Pictures' Chairman and CEO Mike Medavoy said: "After making the first 'RoboCop' at Orion more than 20 years ago, I'm thrilled to be helping to return this character to the screen with our partners at MGM and through the eyes of Darren Aronofsky and David Self."

Phoenix co-presidents Brad Fischer and David Thwaites added: "With a filmmaker of Darren Aronofsky's vision and imagination and a writer of David Self's caliber, we are poised to bring to the screen an entertaining and provocative film, which will now be under the creative guidance of two of the best storytellers working in our industry today."

The original RoboCop, which premiered in 1987, was "part man, part machine and all cop." The film's storyline focused on the future of law enforcement as a terminally wounded cop returns to the police force as a powerful cyborg haunted by submerged memories. The original film was nominated for two Academy Awards -- Best Film Editing and Best Sound.

Legendary Finances "Gears of War"

Legendary Pictures is coming on board to co-finance and co-produce the "Gears of War" movie based on Microsoft and Epic Games' hit vidgame reports Variety.

Len Wiseman is directing with Chris Morgan writing the script based on a draft by Stuart Beattie. "Gears" centers on a world beset by aliens known as the Locust and a team of soldiers fighting to retake the planet.

A sequel game is coming out in November. Originally planned for Summer 2009, the film is now unscheduled.

Wasikowska Is Burton's "Alice"

Disney Pictures is in final talks with Australian actress Mia Wasikowska to star in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" says The Hollywood Reporter.

Based on a script by Linda Woolverton ("The Lion King"), Burton's new take on Lewis Carroll's classic fantasy novel will be shot with live-action and performance-capture footage and presented in Disney Digital 3-D.

Wasikowska started in the Aussie medical drama "All Saints" and became a regular on HBO's "In Treatment". She's also in a few upcoming films including the Daniel Craig WW2 thriller "Defiance" and the Hilary Swank-lead Amelia Earhart biopic.

Shooting begins in November.

Tyrese Gibson a Thundercat?

Superhero Hype! got a chance to speak with rapidly rising star Tyrese Gibson at the Death Race junket in San Diego on Sunday. We'll have the full video interview soon, but he did fill us in on another big project for him that will hopefully be happening the near future: Thundercats!

Tyrese said that he's been very involved in the attempt to bring the classic '80s cartoon series to the big screen and seemed to hint that a deal is very nearly complete. We asked him what character he'd be playing and he just smiled and said that there's a number of options on the table.

Late last year, the project was announced as a CG-animated feature at Warner Bros. Pictures that would be directed by video game veteran Jerry O'Flaherty. Whether that still stands is unknown.

Look for the full interview soon!

With the latest entry in the Batman franchise, The Dark Knight, doing record business at the box office, it's only to be expected that the Hollywood bigwigs would be planning their next Gotham City venture.

And the news today is that they may well have lined up Angelina Jolie to play Catwoman in the next installment.

Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the 1960's Batman TV series, says Angelina is perfect for the role:

"Angelina would own the part ... my industry friends tell me she has already made enquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman's one true love."

The reports are not clear on whether Angelina would play the villain opposite Batman or if she would star in a spin-off akin to 2004's critically panned Catwoman, which featured Halle Berry.

Rumor: Keanu Reeves as Spike in Cowboy Bebop Movie?!

Just last week we discovered that Fox is developing a live-action Cowboy Bebop movie based on the popular anime series. Remarkably, the project still isn't officially announced and Fox is still keeping it under wraps. However, a good friend inside the industry who is a very reliable source wrote in to tell me that the film is being fast tracked inside the studio and will most likely be out by 2010. He also revealed that Keanu Reeves has been attached as the lead character Spike for over eight months now and is still set for the role. Unfortunately there isn't a writer or director attached yet, but with some new forward momentum coming from last week's announcement, I don't think it will take too long.

Exclusive: No Pablo for Bardem?
Originally posted by Inactive User
An interesting development at today's press junket for Woody Allen's romantic comedy Vicky Christina Barcelona when ComingSoon.net spoke to the film's star Javier Bardem and asked him about Joe Carnahan's Killing Pablo, for which the Oscar-winning actor was attached to play the title role of drug kingpin Pablo Escobar.

It was reported by Variety last October that the Yari Film Group was fast-tracking the film with Bardem playing the lead role and Christian Bale to co-star. When ComingSoon.net spoke to Carnahan earlier this summer, he was already talking about his trip down to Colombia to start preparing in order to shoot the movie in the fall. (At the time, he said nothing about the casting.)

In February, the National Ledger cast some doubt on whether Bardem would play the role, but it seemed more like Bardem hadn't decided what he wanted to do yet, saying "Those credits are up in the air" even though Bardem was still listed to play the role on IMDb.com, having presumably been Carnahan's first choice for Escobar.

With that in mind, ComingSoon.net asked Bardem today how he was preparing for the role, to which we were informed that it was "a mistake" and that it "wasn't true" he was going to play the part in Carnahan's movie. Since we presumed everything was in place for casting with the Variety report and Carnahan's own progress on moving into production, we'll have to wait and see who Carnahan gets to fill the role if Bardem is out. There's been no word from Bale on his own part in the movie despite having spent the past few weeks doing press for The Dark Knight.

^^you speak the truth, no more remakes. keep it original.

Very true... but I wish to be ORIGINAL now, would be attempted because its nearly impossible now with the globe full of writers & directors that change up old movies & call it something else!!
I read somewhere, I think IMDB, that even a "classic" like Ben-Hur was a remake! So apparently, re-making films has been done since the very start! Who knows, somebody one day will just revolutionize how a film is directed or something?!?!

Harry Potter 6 Pushed Back to Summer '09!
In making the announcement, Mr. Horn stated, "Our reasons for shifting 'Half-Blood Prince' to summer are twofold: we know the summer season is an ideal window for a family tent pole release, as proven by the success of our last 'Harry Potter' film, which is the second-highest grossing film in the franchise, behind only the first installment. Additionally, like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers' strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films

The trade says Marvel had no comment, but sources close to the deal said negotiations with Howard fell through over financial differences, among other reasons.

Marvel, which had wanted to work with Cheadle, then decided to take the role in another direction and approached the actor, who is shooting Antoine Fuqua's Brooklyn's Finest.

Justin Theroux is writing the screenplay for Iron Man 2, coming to theaters on May 7, 2010. Jon Favreau is returning as director, and Robert Downey Jr. is expected back as Stark/Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow also is expected to be back as Pepper Potts.
