MCG TO DIRECT AN EPIC ON CHRISTOPHER "COLUMBUS". JAMES FRANCO AND ANNE HATHAWAY MIGHT JOIN RIDLEY SCOTT'S "ALIEN" PREQUEL. MEL GIBSON WILL BE A BANGKOK TATTOO ARTIST IN "HANGOVER II"

According to "Deadline", adventurous billionaire Richard Branson is negotiating to acquire the script for COLUMBUS written by T.S. Nowlin for his new production company. If he succeeds, infamous director McG (TERMINATOR SALVATION, CHARLIE'S ANGELS) will helm this epic about the equally infamous Christopher Columbus and his famous voyage to America apparently in a Zack Snyder's 300 style.

For some reason, Ridley Scott's future sf horror project, the prequel to ALIEN,  is a hot topic these days around the net, probably because of the possible stars who might end up starring in this film which Scott wants to make as an R-rated flick. Natalie
Portman
was already mentioned as a female Marine general in the film, and the latest possible additions to the cast include James Franco and the totally unexpected Anne Hathaway in unknown roles.
I must admit I haven't watched the first HANGOVER, since such comedies aren't really my cup of tea, but this new detail about its sequel HANGOVER 2 , coming out next, year is just super hilarious:  according to "The New York Post" Mel Gibson will be playing a Bangkok tattoo artist in it but it still isn't clear whether he would be playing himself as an actor hiding out in Thailand, or if he would be playing a character not at all associated with his own public image. What's even more crazy is that there's another disgraced guy who might appear in the sequel - no other but Tiger Woods :)

  1. Tiger Woods!? Surely, you jest. Mel, I can understand, but Tiger?

  3. Alien Prequel would be the movie I'm looking forward too most, can't believe Anne Hathaway might be in it, I do like her, like James Franco even more ha ha. Gibson for Hangover 2? I think him playing himself might actually be a good idea, could bring back some of his fans, who knows. Thanks for the gossip Dez

  4. The Hangover is hilarious; I'm not always in for raunchy humor, but it's pretty side-splitting. Can't wait for a sequel!

    I hear you brother, I was also shocked that Anne might appear in this film. Hope she won't play the alien itself :))

    @Summer
    and it seems it will be a helluva sequel :)

  6. OMG! You always get the scoop! I will pass the hell out if I see Mel's crazy ass lmfao! Just with that info I'm down to see it regardless!

  7. Tiger Woods kinda makes sense, since the first Hangover had Mike Tyson in it. I recommend the first Hanger movie to everyone, it's just bonkers but it's so much fun!

  9. I've always liked James Franco's acting, but I had no idea he was such a genius until I heard him interviewed on NPR the other day.

  10. Anne Hathaway in a Sci-fi film? Alien prequel? Interesting... very very interesting.. Intriguing too for sure :).
    Hangover is one totally hilarious and entertaining film, can't wait to see what will be shattered by those four rascals in their second show :)

  11. That Columbus flick sounds like it could be pretty awesome. Richard Branson is a frickin genius if you ask me. He has created quite the empire. Hangover II I'm a bit leery about. Loved the first one, but I don't know how a sequel will go over. I do like the news about the Alien prequel though. You know how I like me some Natalie Portman :)

  12. I would be interested in Columbus if it were a fact based recounting of history and not merely a agenda driven smear on Columbus. We can see in retrospect that a lot of what the early explorers and entrepreneurs did was mishandled and immoral, but we should also understand that they were seeing things from a very different perspective at that time than we can see from our vantage point. I liked the way Ridley Scott handle the story in 1492: Conquest of Paradise. Things aren't always just all good or all bad like some propagandists would like to portray.

  13. Hangover 2's got Mel and Tiger? Well, sounds like art imitating life & vice versa... seems fitting that these two are involved in one movie. I think the tagline should be Hangover 2: Cheatin' hearts.

    As for McG making an EPIC Columbus... I'll wait for the trailer before making my judgment. As Arlee Bird says, if it's fact-based (or as close to it as possible) then I'm interested.

  14. If Mel OR Tiger appear in The Hangover 2, I'll be there on opening day to check it out....

  15. Mel in the Hangover 2? Sounds a lot different than the original. And maybe a little too close to real life?

    oh, sis, I didn't know Mel gets you so excited :PPP

    @Jamie
    did Tyson bite anyone's ear off in the film?

    @Budd
    I see you know your alien-terminology :)

    @Matt
    he is? That's nice to hear

    @Jaccsy
    the rascals will get into some action for sure

    Brenson really is one cool billionaire who knows how to live his life :)

    @Arlee and Flixy
    indeed, as with any other historical film this one should follow the historical facts as much as it is possible and not just continue the propaganda we've seen so far.

    @Andrew
    glad you like the news

    @Alex
    maybe, maybe ... although I'm not sure he deserves the chance but ...

  18. I think hangover2 is a movie to miss. But I like the names in the Alien prequel. That's exciting.

  22. Love Anne Hathaway, not sure if I will like this role, but the actress I like. Tiger Woods??? Wow, really? (I'm still a fan of Tiger regardless of his personal life)
