One of 2012's most pleasant surprises was Christopher McQuarrie's 'Jack Reacher,' which starred Tom Cruise as the titular bad ass. As it was based on a series of books by Lee Child it seemed ready to spawn a franchise, but the film's modestly-hyped Christmas release suggested that Paramount didn't know if they had a winner. The film was a modest success, and now Paramount is working on developing a sequel.
When George Lucas sold his 'Star Wars' empire to Disney, there was a question of who then would control Indiana Jones, as the films were made by Lucasfilm but distributed by Paramount. Today it was ironed out that Disney now controls the rights to all future Indiana Jones adventures.
Ben Stiller's 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' has already screened for numerous critics, which shows that Fox and Stiller think (or thought) they have an Oscar picture on their hands. Which may be why they've released multiple trailers to get audiences familiar with Stiller's Mitty and his flights of fancy.
There have been a number of Young Adult adaptations made of late -- arguably too many -- that focus on the growing pains of becoming an adult while dealing with a dystopian future, or magic, or vampires and werewolves. But though these movies have had their jokes, none have been pitched as comedies, and that might be where 'Vampire Academy' succeeds.
Two days ago, it was announced that the revered holiday classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' was up to get a sequel called 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story.' But today, Paramount, who owns the rights to the original film and the short story on which the film was based, have said that it can't happen without their involvement and they're willing to get litigious over it.
Last we heard, three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson wasn't totally retired, but the 76-year old had become so choosy about his work that it's possible 2010's 'How Do You Know' could be his last feature film. Well, not if Tom Cruise has anything to say about it, as he's wooing Jack to star along with him in 'El Presidente' for his 'Edge of Tomorrow' director Doug Liman.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties, it's possible that the original cast may no longer have a role in the production. Former Jedi Samuel L. Jackson has spoken to Mark Hamill about returning as Luke Skywalker, and revealed that Hamill hasn't spoken to Abrams.
In what could be the strangest modern development in the comic-book universe, a poster has been revealed that hints at a 'Wonder Twins' movie starring two veterans of 'That '70s Show,' Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis. There are a couple options for what this could mean, but it's more than likely we're being Justin Biebered.
The two names that have popped up most as the contenders for the lead roles in 'Jurassic World' have been Bryce Dallas Howard and Josh Brolin. But while Howard recently confirmed her involvement, it appears that Brolin won't be making a trip to Isla Nubar, and his shoes may be filled by Chris Pratt.
Considering that 2015 is looking like one of the biggest movie years in the history of cinema, it's surprising that studios aren't as afraid of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' as they were of 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.' Currently 'Episode 7' will open December 18, the same day as 'Warcraft,' and now 'Mission: Impossible 5' has announced that they'll be hitting theaters a week later on Christmas Day.
