Warning: This Post is the Mass Grave of Random News About Sequels
Here's that actual news though.
First, Paranormal Activity 3 was announced! And it even has a release date! It'll be Oct 21, 2011, thus officially taking over the mantle of Saw as the yearly Halloween horror franchise release, the main difference being that the Paranormal Activity movies have actually been good. It will be curious to see how much longer they can pull off the suburban-house-wired-with-cameras trick though with a straight face. Of course, they did legitimately both stick to what worked in the first film and move an overall story forward in the second film, so they get the benefit of the doubt for the third one, for now at least.
Second, Spider-Man 4 (yeah, fine, it's a reboot not a sequel, but there's already a movie called Spider-Man, so until they give me an alternate title, this one's getting labeled with a "4" in my book) has announced that Denis Leary is in talks to play Gwen Stacy's (played by Emma Stone) father.
Third, Men in Black 3 started filming yesterday. It's got a weird shooting schedule, as they're taking a two-month hiatus in the middle of it in order to wait for summer to come back and apparently for some tax reasons. A big part of the plot involves a time travel bit in 1969, with Josh Brolin playing a young version of Tommy Lee Jones. I just don't understand why we're getting a third iteration of the poor man's Ghostbusters before we get the third iteration of Ghostbusters. I do find it hilarious though that Brolin is only 22 years younger than Jones, yet will be playing a 41-year-younger version of him.
