  • Director Brad Bird has been keeping his Damon Lindelof scripted Tomorrowland hush-hush as far as plot goes. Finally, they gave the scoop to HitFix:
  • "A teenage girl, a genius middle-aged man (who was kicked out of Tomorrowland) and a pre-pubescent girl robot attempt to get to and unravel what happened to Tomorrowland, which exists in an alternative dimension, in order to save Earth."

  • Seth Grahame-Smith's novel "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" may yet become a movie. The rights have been floating from director to director since 2009 when Lionsgate snagged it. David O. Russell, Mike White, and Craig Gillespie were all attached at one point or another and only Russell's script is still in the mix. Panorama Media now has the film rights and hopes to get a director to stick.
  • A horror film that actually frightened me, Sinister, is getting a sequel. I do not want to spoil anything for those of you that haven't seen the film, but I will say that it will be easy to pull a sequel from this movie. Hopefully enough will stay the same to feel like a true continuation of the story while also being different in ways that will keep the viewer engaged. Robert Cargill and director Scott Derrickson, who wrote the original, will also pen the sequel. Derrickson will not be directing this time, however.
  • 300: Rise of an Empire has released an image. The sequel to 299 300 is supposed to be released this year. The movie takes place before, during, and after the original. The IMDB logline reads: "The Greek general Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes." Uhh.

  • Sam Raimi has said that he and his brother Ivan will begin work on Evil Dead 4 this summer. I think I've heard this tune before, but I will probably still nod my head to it until it fades away. Then I will be relieved, because I don't know if they can top Army of Darkness.

  • Steve Carell announced on The Tonight Show that Anchorman 2 has begun production. He also stated that Brick will still be a moron. Joining the previously announced cast additions are Meagan Good as Ron's new boss and Dylan Baker in an unspecified role.
  • Omar Sy (The Intouchables) has become the first black actor to be officially cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, we have no idea who he will play and with the way information about the film is seeping out like it is, we might have to wait until June of next year to find out.

      Nothing can top Army of Darkness!

    • Robert

      It'll be easy enough to create a Sinister sequel. The question is whether or not they can do anything new or if they just Paranormal Activity it with the same beats and everything.

    • Blamer

      re: X-Men... Bishop??? :D

    • Javier

      My thoughts exactly.

    • Blake

      Omar Sy cast in X-Men - My moneys on Darwin... Sorry Edi Gathegi.

    • 'Omar Sy (The Intouchables) has become the first black actor to be officially cast in X-Men: Days of Future Past'

      So that means that Omar Sy has also signed on to be the first character to die in X-Men: Days of Future Past? Good for him

    • Blake

      Or resurrected? Darwin!

    • How does no one realize he is playing the time-traveling, curly haired, head of District-X's Mutant Unit? BISHOP for the win.

    • Bert_McGurt

      How does robot puberty work, anyway?

    • VonnegutSlut

      The sheer fact that they described it/her as "pre-pubescent" sounds vaguely creepy...like in a bad touch way. It's weird.

    • Natallica

      Even more when you know a "middle-aged" genius is also involved

    • Bert_McGurt

      Wait'll you find out why they kicked him out of Tomorrowland.

    • Natallica

      Are we sure this is not actually some kind of sci-fi fantasy revolving around the Doug Hutchinson-Courtney Stodden affair? I mean, the "robot" part certainly suits her.

    • Quatermain

      It probably involves sudden antenna extensions and emissions of hydraulic fluid in the night.
