AARON JOHNSON IN "GODZILLA"? ABC WANTS "STAR WARS" SHOW? "JURASSIC PARK 4", "STEP UP 5", "DREDD 2", "PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5"! "JACK THE GIANT SLAYER" GIANT POSTERS

Earlier last week I informed you that Warner Bros. wants Henry Cavill for the lead role in their remake of GODZILLA, but during the
weekend the new name which popped up in the run for the role is Aaron Johnson whom you've seen in KICK-ASS and this winter in ANNA KARENINA! The remake is being written by THE WALKING DEAD's Frank Darabont. Another piece of news which dominated this weekend is the one about ABC wanting to do live action STAR WARS TV show, which was deemed too expensive for the small screens. Now that both the network and LucasFilms are owned by Disney, this seems more realistic than three or four years ago when first ideas about the show were revealed. The idea was to spend 5$ million per episode and to make a show which would be similar to a space western. The show which might centre on rival families battling for control of the underworld in the galaxy probably won't be connected with the new STAR WARS film scheduled for 2015.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
And a bunch of sequels is in works in Hollywood: JURASSIC PARK IV has been officially scheduled for June 2014 with Steven Spielberg producing the project, and another sf project DREDD is also hoping to get its sequel
since it was originally planned as a trilogy. Karl Urban film wasn't overly successful at the box office but it did gain army of fans who loved the remake. Pete Travis won't return to the helm.  A film which did score huge worldwide success last year was STEP UP 4 REVOLUTION, and the fresh gossip says that we will be getting STEP UP 5 with the idea to gather all of the stars from the previous parts into the fifth film, including Channing Tatum who starred in the first movie and who became a major star later on. They will apparently all appear in an epic dance number in the end of the film. As you know, Channing didn't only launch his career with STEP UP but he also married Jenna Dewan, his partner in the film. Meanwhile, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 will have TOWER HEIST writer Jeff Nathanson penning the script. Johnny Depp is returning to his role.

JACK THE GIANT SLAYER GIANT POSTERS
The film which was supposed to hit cinemas last year but will premiere this March, fantasy adventure JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is finally getting some marketing. Posters have been released, Fye, Foe, Fumm
and Fallon, showing the mighty giants that Nicholas Hoult will have to slay as Jack. He will have to climb up the famous beanstalk and rescue his princess played by Eleanor Tomlinson. You can read more
about the Bryan Singer directed movie in our spotlight. The cast also includes Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy and Ian McShane.

GOLDEN GLOBES RED CARPET REPORT TOMORROW

  1. Love that pic of Channing. That man is growing on me, especially after I witnessed his epic magic Mike. Now there's a film that deserves a few more sequels and one all about Matt Bomer. LOL And I do think that he and Jenna are cute together.

    Pirates is done for me, I love Johnny, but I can't see where they can possibly take Jack.

    1. Don't ask me, Melsy, I've no idea why they did four previous Pirates in the first place :) Although I should probably watch the last one since it features my dear Sam Claflin.

  3. I just watched Judge Dredd the other night. Full of blood and guts. I love Lena Headey and Karl Urban though -- well, she won't be coming back in the sequel, will she. :P

    And those Giant posters are cool. I saw the trailer on the big screen and it could be fun to watch. Sounds like it may disappoint, though, since they pushed it back to a March release.

    1. I haven't seen it myself, for the reasons you stated, and plus we see no Karl Urban's face in it :(

      GIANT SLAYER will flop because of the horrid fanboys who started the negative campaign last year as they do for all such epic films, they glorify only pure evil and trash like DARK KNIGHT and DJANGO UNCHAINED...

    2. Yes, that was weird not to see Karl's face. All you ever saw was his frown, which he wore the entire movie. :( << like that.

      Such a waste of a handsome face. :P

    1. it will be our fave epic adventure this spring, especially since 2013 will be terribly poor with epic and historical flicks :(

  7. Looking forward to Jack The Giant Slayer. Along with everything else the film has to offer, there is some humour in it as well. The giant chasing that sheep gave me a good giggle.

    Very tired of remakes, but dance movies are usually a pleasure and Channing is a hot number. (I didn't like that Magic Mike thing though. I know, I'm in the minority, but I stand by my opinion on that one)

    1. and it has Ewan, which is a reason enough for us to watch it.
      Haven't seen MAGIC MIKE yet, I prefer Channing's romantic films. There's something interesting in watching a beefy guy like him in a romantic movie :)

  9. Aaron needs to wash his face; he's got some dirt smudges . . .

    I'll be dreaming about Tatum tonight. So fine. I'm looking forward to seeing Jack the Giant Slayer; and Pirates 5.

    You look smashing in your tux Dezzy.

  12. I'm looking forward to Jurassic Park 4, though I'm a little wary as #3 went a little pear shaped without Michael Chrichton's novels to base itself on.
