Wolverine Sequel in the Works

Is it any surprise that H’wood is already working on a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine?  The movie more than paid for itself over the weekend, prompting 20th Century Fox to begin development on the story that will be set in Japan focusing on the samurai/Yakuza storyline. I think the biggest problem with this idea, is it’s a 20th Century Fox idea.   The best Marvel Comics movies that have come out in the last decade have been the movies produced and distributed through Marvel.  I don’t know how much money 20th Century Fox would want in the deal, but Marvel…

Your Turn: React to Wolverine

So the movie officially opened this past weekend, and brought in an estimated $87 million in the United States.  For those who saw it in the theater, now it’s time for you to tell us what you thought?  Better or worse than expected?  Would you see another Wolverine feature film? And for those that illegally downloaded the film (and the FBI knows who you are), did you also go and see it in the theater?  Was it radically different than what you downloaded? It’s your turn to chat it up!  And if you want, give us a call at the…

Swine Flu Hinders Wolverine Premiere in Mexico City

20th Century Fox is already cranking up the PR machine, citing the recent swine flu outbreak as a potential reason for the movie not performing well this weekend.  The movie studio postponed the premiere of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine in Mexico, but still plans to move ahead with the rest of the openings. At least one school in New York shut down after students were diagnosed with the malady, and with the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control amping up the fear factor over this outbreak, it wouldn’t surprise me if more people stay away from the…

Who Leaked Wolverine Online? This Guy Did

If you believe it. Sounds like a hoax, especially when he starts to complain that the special effects community doesn’t get a share of profits of the film.  Almost like someone  someone doesn’t know the difference between an Above the Line and Below the Line position.

Robert Rodriguez Brings Machete to the Screen, Relaunches Predator Series

Variety is reporting Robert Rodriguez is taking the Machete trailer from his Grindhouse film, and turning it into a feature length movie.  Danny Trejo will play the lead character, with Rodriguez expected to start filming in June. Machete is a Mexican ex-Federale with a gift for wielding a blade, who hides out as a day laborer, who is double-crossed by a corrupt state senator. In addition to that bit of news, Variety also reports that the producer/director/editor/graphic artist/musician/grip/gaffer/catterer/fill in any other job Rodriguez does himself here has written the script for the relaunch of the Predator series for 20th Century…

Fox Closes Fox Atomic Production Label

Variety floats out a report that has been circulating around H’wood since Friday – 20th Century Fox has closed down Fox Atomic, the production company responsible for 28 Weeks Later, The Hills Have Eyes II, and many other films in the genre. Atomic was hoping to make its biggest mark later this year with two potentially commercial films: the July 10 opener “I Love You, Beth Cooper,” directed by Chris Columbus and starring Hayden Panettiere, and “Jennifer’s Body,” the Diablo Cody-scripted, Karyn Kusama-directed horror film that stars Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried. That film will be released Sept. 18. It’s…

X-Men First Class – The Movie?

You’ve already seen young Cyclops in the trailer to May’s Wolverine movie, and you may be seeing more of him in the near future (providing he doesn’t agree to appear in a DC Comics movie).  In an interview with Fox Movie Channel, franchise producer Lauren Shuler did say the X-Men: First Class movie was on the way and would be a flashback flick featuring the young versions of the mutants we’ve all come to love. It is the first class of Xavier’s school, way back when, so it’s young Scott, young Jean, young Beast and that’ll be really fun… I…

Sad News for Canadians – No More Simpsons

Hoping to cut costs and keep the company afloat, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. not only announced it may cut 800 jobs, it is also canceling orders for The Simpsons and The Martha Stewart Show.  Martha I can understand, as that seems to be more of a method of torture than entertainment, but to deny our America’s Hat brethren the antics of those silly yellow people, is simply no way to run a television network. The pubcaster also said it will lower license fees and order fewer episodes of such popular Canadian TV series as “The Border,” “Being Erica,” and “Little…

I Love It When A Plan Comes Together? A-Team Gets Film Treatment

H’wood is once again throwing originality out the window and diving into your childhood to bring the A-Team television show to the big screen.  Ridley Scott, Jules Daly, and Stephen J. Cannell are all on board to produce the film with Joe Carnahan set to direct. Carnahan and the Scott brothers say they will use the original premise of the series as the template for an action film. In the original, four Vietnam vets convicted of armed robbery escape from military prison and became do-gooder mercenaries. The Middle East will replace Vietnam as the place the four did their tour…

Wolverine Promo Pic Ignores the Fat Guy

Who’s missing in this picture? Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool; Taylor Kitsch as Gambit; Hugh Jackman as Wolverine; Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth and Lynn Collins as Silver Fox.   Where is the love for the Blob?  A fat guy that rips your guts out and eats them on panel can’t get a little love?

Human Target Gets Pilot Nod

Fox Television is close to giving the DC Comic series Human Target the television treatment as it begins to announce the pilots for the new television season. Based on the cult DC Comics book and written by “Jericho” co-creator Jonathan Steinberg, it centers on a mysterious security expert who goes undercover to protect clients in danger. Will admit I’ve never read the comic, but the premise doesn’t sound any worse than other shows Fox has greenlit.  Prison Break anyone? via THR

Watchmen Details Emerge

Details are beginning to emerge on the settlement between Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox over the Watchmen movie. The film will still open on March 6 Warner Bros. will pay between $5 million and $10 million in the $1.4 development fees Fox claims it invested in the movie when it had the rights. The rest of that load will cover the legal fees. Fox gets a percentage of gross sales – somewhere between 5% and 8.5%. Fox also gets a percentage of gross for any sequels or spinoffs. I don’t know if that includes video game revenu or not.…
