Daily Movie News

Thursday, February 25, 2010

  • Latino Review broke news yesterday that David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, FlashForward) is attached to write the next Superman movie. The movie is currently titled The Man of Steel. He is the only person attached it at the moment. Also, the story will involve Lex Luthor and Braniac and isn't a origin story. Superman himself Brandon Routh will not star and Brian Singer isn't expected to direct. That's awesome with Goyer writing, but it sucks without Routh as Superman.

  • Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover, Youth in Revolt) is going to star in a buddy supernatural/comedy called Miracle Workers. Zach will play a man posing as an exorcist with a pal. The buddies think they got it good until they are faced with a real menace. Sounds like it could be funny.

  • Mickey Rourke has officially signed on the Conan movie to play Conan's father. Also, MMA fighter Bob Sapp has signed on to play Ukafa. Filming starts on March 15th. This movie could be cool.

  • Writer Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2) is reportedly in talks to direct Zoolander 2. He will most likely to write it with Ben Stiller. No news on Owen Wilison returning, but Jonah Hill is in negotiations to play the villain. Zoolander was awesome and with Hill playing the villain this could be good or bad.

  • Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds have been cast to star in a 3D CG/comedy called The Croods. Dreamworks Animation has hired Chris Sanders (Lilo & Stitch, how to Train Your Dragon) and Kirk DeMicco (Space Chimips) to write and direct the film. Cage is just selling himself to make back some money he loss. 

  • Action movie star Bruce Willis announced that he his going to be working on two anticipated sequels next. He announced that they are going to make Die Hard 5 maybe sometime as close as next year and he will contribute in taking McClane worldwide. Also, Willis wants Live Free or Die Hard director zlen Wiseman to return. His other film is the sequel to the M. Night Shyamalan directed Unbreakable cleverly titled Unbreakable 2 (for now). He talked to Night over the holidays and they decided not to do a fight film between Willis and Jackson, but instead an origin story. He also stated he will return if Sam Jackson does. So I can't wait for both of these movies.
