Daily Movie News

Wednesday February 10th, 2010

  • Writer David S. Goyer and Jonah Nolan announced that they are currently writing the next Batman movie in the Christopher Nolan series. No news on villains,plot details, or anything.

  • Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens has finally settled on a release date of July 29, 2011. The announcement came after Universal moved Peter Berg's Battleship from that date to May 25, 2011. The only other film set to be released on July 29th is Sony's The Smurfs

  • Another change in the release date for Priest. This time it has been pushed back to January 14, 2011 for a release in 3D. This movie just cannot keep a date set and now it's in 3D (WOW).

  • Fox is developing a reboot for the Daredevil franchise to keep the rights to the property. Screenwriter David Scarpa (The Day the Earth Stood Still) is rumored to be writing it. So, maybe it will be better then the Ben Affleck movie, even though it's not a bad film. 

  • Director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) is rumored to be helping with the production of the next Superman film is some way. He probably won't direct it, but he may help with character development, casting, and production. Who cares what he helps with because it's effing Chris Nolan.

  • Animated film company Imagi International has gone bankrupt and their film in production CG-film Gatchaman is safe for now. The anticipated film is being outsourced to mainland China to get finished. So you fans can breath again.

  • Twilight star Taylor lautner will star in Stretch Armstrong. Stretch is based on the hit 70's toy from Hasbro that was relaunched in the 90's and is getting a feature-film treatment from Academy Award winning producer Brian Grazer and Steve Oedekerk has written a screenplay for it. I just don't know how a skinny kid will play a hulking beast of a man. I just don't see it.

More news later and maybe a name change. I just don't have time to do "Daily Movie News", so maybe Just "Movie News".
