Bad news for fans hoping for a new Indiana Jones movie. Last year there were reports that spoke of preparations for a new sequel. George Lucas revealed that he and Steven Spielberg discussed some ideas but couldn't find a MacGuffin. This week, in an interview, Spielberg's long-time collaborator and producer Frank Marshall talked about the status of the sequel, and it seems things aren't looking very good :
"I say, for me, [Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is] the last hurrah. I know that yes, we talk about it, but there’s no idea, there’s no MacGuffin. [About George Lucas] Yeah, no he isn’t [hungry to do another Indiana Jones]. And he’s obviously passing the baton to my wife [Kathleen Kennedy], so..."


Peter Jackson wants to turn "The Hobbit" into a trilogy. His intentions were initially revealed at this year's Comic-Con, but now it's official and he's taking the required steps with Warner Brothers to work out the logistics. This of course means that there will be need for additional filming to add content for a new film that will work as a companion for the two that Jackson is already working on : "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (December 14, 2012) and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" (December 13, 2013). According to some reports, Jackson intends on using the stories from the appendices of Tolkien's books. In a recent interview he stated the following :
"we haven’t just adapted The Hobbit; we’ve adapted that book plus great chunks of his appendices and woven it all together. The movie explains where Gandalf goes; the book never does. We’ve explained it using Tolkien’s own notes. That helped inform the tone of the movie, because it allowed us to pull in material he wrote in The Lord of the Rings era and incorporate it with The Hobbit. So we kept the charm and the whimsy of the fairy tale quality through the characters. Through the dwarves and Bilbo, who is more of a humorous character. He doesn’t try to be funny but we find him funny and find his predicament more amusing than that of Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. That was more serious. So the whimsy is there, but tonally I wanted to make it as similar to The Lord of the Rings, because I wanted it to be possible for the people, the crazy people in the world who want to watch these films back to back one day…"


Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black ("Milk", "J. Edgar") was hired to write the script for "Earthquake", a disaster flick produced by J.J. Abrams ("Lost", "Super 8"). The movie will not be a remake of the 1974 movie of the same name, but will share a similar subject.



"Captain America : Winter Soldier", Marvel's sequel to "The First Avenger", will be directed by Joe and Anthony Russo ("You, Me and Dupree", "Community"). A few interisting tidbits were revealed by Anthony Russo in the following interview :
"I mean, we’re trying to grow him as a character, and certainly he’s come a long way, from where he started in pre-World War 2 to where he is in modern-day America. So the character has room for growth because of that huge journey that he’s been on, Number 1. Number 2, part of the appeal of these movies is the ensemble. Captain America isn’t the only character in the film, there are other characters that are perhaps lighter in nature (...) I can say in general that there’s sort of a darker, edgier sensibility at work there that we found appealing, and that is going find its way into Captain [America] in the modern day (...) [Captain America] is in a very different time and place. For as well as that style worked for his World War 2 experience and the origin of Cap—part of the fun of picking a guy out of one time period and plopping him down in another is that all bets are off. The whole world is different, and that’s part of the struggle of the character and the challenge the character faces."


"Gangster Squad", the crime drama starring Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling, Nick Nolte, Josh Brolin, Giovanni Ribisi and Emma Stone, has been delayed until January 11, 2013, due to the recent shooting that occured at the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises" which resulted in the death of 12 people. The movie features a scene in which a bunch of mobsters start firing on a theater audience through the movie screen and since the scene was important in the structure of the plot, it will require reshoots, which take time, hence the delay.

the campaign teaser poster
Official Synopsis: When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naïve Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about. As Election Day closes in, the two are locked in a dead heat, with insults quickly escalating to injury until all they care about is burying each other, in this mud-slinging, back-stabbing, home-wrecking comedy from “Meet the Parents” director Jay Roach that takes today’s political circus to its logical next level. Because even when you think campaign ethics have hit rock bottom, there’s room to dig a whole lot deeper.

Official Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that’s nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way….
