There is a lot of talk and discussion about whether or not Robert Rodriguez will direct the Deadpool movie for 20th Century Fox.  I don’t know whether a comment by Rodriguez at the San Diego Comic Con got everyone in a tizzy, or if the director and Fox have really come to an agreement, but the L.A. Times is running the story that the parties are sitting down for some serious negotiations.  Now negotiations are a far cry from a done deal, especially when there are specific items that need to be addressed by both sides. It would be great

This past weekend, Andrew Stanton, the man behind many of the best animated movies of the last 15 years, said the upcoming John Carter of Mars movie will not be a Pixar movie, but will be firmly under the Disney banner.  Stanton also dismissed rumors that the film would be entirely 3D in nature. The look of the film will be “very real,” and not highly-stylized, due to what Stanton sees as the way the original story has been ripped off by many different movies over the years; it’ll also be a faithful retelling, with Carter remaining the Civil War
