Daily Movie News

Saturday, April 3, 2010

  • Marvel Studios confirmed that Chris Evans is indeed playing Steve Rodgers/Captain America in the highly anticipated The First Avenger: Captain America. Also, It is reported that Sebastian Stan (Gossip Girl) has been cast as Captain America's side-kick Bucky. I like Caps casting, but do they really need Bucky at all. The film hits theaters on July 22, 2011.

  • XXX: The Return of Xander Cage is finally getting made and it's in 3D. Rob Cohen has got signed back on to direct after leaving to direct the then and now stalled Medieval. Cohen has returned because of the many things to do with 3D. The film should be released in late 2011 or early 2012.

  • Directors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar 1 and 2) will be directing American Pie 4. No cast have resigned yet, but the film will bring back original cast. Also, this means they won't be directing A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas. This is good and bad depends on how you look at it.

  • Director/creator Joss Whedon (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer) is rumored to be on the "short list" to direct Marvel's The Avengers. The only other director on the list is Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk) and has a release date of May 4, 2012.

  • The beloved classic 1938 book Mr. Popper's Penguins may get a big screen adaptation with Ben Stiller and director Noah Baumbach in-talks to star and direct receptively.

  • Look Who's Talking is getting remade. I can't agree if it should be remade or not, but I love the original. No Director or writers have been hired yet.

  • Also, in talking baby news, the taking E*Trade baby is getting his own movie. I feel Hollywood is going downhill. The film is being written by Katie Dippold (MadTv).
