Picking up the baton from John Williams (and Don Davis), fan favorite Michael Giacchino will score 'Jurassic World.' Best known for his work on Pixar films and J.J. Abrams' movies and shows, he's clearly on his way to becoming the new Williams, so his hiring makes sense.
'The Flintstones' is being rebooted for the cinema, though this time (back) as a cartoon, with the help of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay. They'll be producing the film, which has already got a writer attached.
Ever since George Lucas sold 'Star Wars' to Disney a year and a half ago, there's been word of sequels and spinoffs in the works. But the production of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' took longer to launch than expected, and so the effort to create those standalone films was put on the back burner. Now that 'Episode 7' is days away from shooting, Disney is beating the drum again, and have announced they'll be at least three new spinoffs coming before 2024.
This weekend 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' hit theaters (making over $91 million at the box office), and disappointed anyone who sat through all the end credits thinking they'd get additional footage about the next movie. We've known for a while the film wouldn't feature a sequel tease, but it's now been revealed that an end credit Easter egg sequence was shot that enlarged the role of Chris Cooper's Norman Osborn
'Pitch Perfect 2' has added some fresh blood to its cast of returning players by recruiting 'True Grit' star Hailee Steinfeld into its a capella choir. And word is that she's being primed to take over the franchise if it becomes a series.
Though the major roles in the reboot of 'Fantastic Four' have been filled, the movie must do some world-building to set up the film's already dated sequel. So it's no surprise that Tim Blake Nelson is joining the cast of the film to play Harvey Elder, who will eventually (though not in the first film) become the Mole Man.
Unless he's caught in a trap and can't walk out, it looks like 'The Great Gatsby' director Baz Luhrmann will be directing a film about the life of Elvis Presley, though it's unknown how much of the king of Rock and Roll's life the film will cover.
With the announcement of the main cast of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' today, it was hard not to note that of the new cast members, only one was female. Some took issue with this, which may be why word has leaked that there's another key female role that has yet to be cast.
It was previously revealed that 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' would not have an end-credit scene, even though the trend has become standard with Marvel-produced films (and though the last 'Spider-Man' movie had one), and would instead feature footage from 'X-Men: Days of Future Past.' Yet now Sony has alerted us there will be a sequence touting future Spider-Adventures, but not the way you'd expect.
With 'Star Wars: Episode 7' scheduled to start shooting in less than three weeks, we're pretty much guaranteed to know who will be cast in the film shortly, and all evidence suggests an announcement will be made some time on or around May 4, 'Star Wars' Day. But even with shooting right around the corner, the latest rumors add 'Inside Llewyn Davis' star Oscar Isaac into the mix and suggest that Harrison Ford has a huge role in the film.
After having to spend a year trying to figure out who exactly owns it, Fox is now working on a 'Flash Gordon' reboot and have hired the writers of 'Star Trek 3' to build on the work already done by 'The Bourne Ultimatum' writer George Nolfi. The question is: Will the new Flash save every one of us?
Steven Spielberg has hired Tony Kushner to adapt David Kertzer's religious period drama novel 'The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara' for the big screen, which suggests that the director may eventually make it. But it seems that it won't be Spielberg's next effort, even though he doesn't have his next film lined up.
The trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' showcases one of the Oscar-winning actor's strangest choices of material in a long time. Sure, we expect Clint to make Westerns and Oscar pictures, but a full-blown musical? This could get interesting.
