Worst Previews wrote:"John Carter" Reboot in the Works, Disney Not Involved

Over the years, there have been many attempts to turn Edgar Rice Burroughs' "John Carter of Mars" into a feature film. Then in 2012, Disney took on that challenge and invested a whopping $250 million to make it happen.

Worldwide, the film grossed $280 million, but when you factor in all the expenses, Disney admitted that it lost over $100 million. So despite the fact that there was a plan for many more "John Carter" installments, the studio decided to abandon the franchise and simply return the rights back to Burroughs' company.

Now comes word from Edger Rice Burroughs Inc that it is "seeking a new studio to continue this seminal sci-fi adventure as chronicled in the eleven 'Mars' novels Burroughs wrote." That's right, the plan is to make another "John Carter" movie. Stay tuned.

Yep, I liked the Disney film and I hoped there would be a sequel but you never know. Could still happen. ;)

Collider wrote:Universal Assembles “Writer’s Room” for Cinematic Monster Universe; WOLFMAN, BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN, and More Reboots Planned

I’ve written before about how this new “interconnected universe” approach to franchise filmmaking is a bad idea. Approaching the film medium like a television series scales back the individualized nature of each film in favor of a serialized, streamlined approach, but Marvel movies make a ton of money so this trend continues to catch on, and Universal is going one further by assembling a literal writer’s room for its Monster Movie Universe.

Screenwriters Alex Kurtzman (Transformers) and Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious franchise) are spearheading Universal’s reboot of its classic monsters, with The Mummy on tap to be the first film out of the gate in 2015 with Kurtzman directing. But now the duo is getting some help in shaping the Monster Movie Universe, as they’ve assembled a brain trust of screenwriters that includes Prisoners scribe Aaron Guzikowski and Men in Black writer Ed Solomon to develop subsequent features.

Per Heat Vision, three writers have joined Kurtzman and Morgan to help shape the Cinematic Monster Universe: Noah Hawley (the creator of FX’s Fargo), Aaron Guzikowski (Prisoners), and Ed Solomon (Now You See Me). We learned about Hawley’s involvement a couple of months ago, but the hiring of Guzikowski and Solomon is a new development. The idea is for the team to “have a hand in each other’s movies and offer help as needed as they work on a model of serialized storytelling.” Essentially, Universal is approaching its interconnected Monster Movie Universe exactly like a television series, breaking the stories of each film as a group and then assigning specific scripts to certain writers.

Guzikowski will take point on a new The Wolfman picture, but Hawley and Solomon have yet to be assigned specific projects as the plan is still coming together. Universal recently announced an April 2017 release date for an untitled monster picture, and seeing as how The Wolfman is the only specific project confirmed outside of The Mummy, it’s probably a safe bet that Wolfman will be the second film out of the gate.

The other planned movies in Universal’s interconnected universe, per Heat Vision, include Dracula, Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, and Van Helsing. Disappointingly, The Creature from the Black Lagoon is nowhere to be found.

I remain unconvinced that this serialized approach to franchise storytelling is a good idea. Marvel Studios has undoubtedly turned out some good films from its cinematic universe plan, but they sacrifice individual identities in favor of a streamlined approach that makes the writer/producer (ie. showrunner) king and the director a bit of a hired hand—same as in television. With Universal now hiring a group of writers to spearhead its monster universe, we can likely expect more of the same. It’s probably futile at this point, but I still hold out hope that Guillermo del Toro gets to make his long-planned adaptation of Frankenstein under this umbrella given his relationship with Legendary—now housed at Universal.

So now that we know which movie reboots are on tap, which filmmakers would you like to see take them on (assuming they have some degree of creative freedom in this “cinematic universe” landscape, that is)?

Worst Previews wrote:Quentin Tarantino Interested in "Django Unchained" and "Zorro" Crossover Film

During this year's Comic-Con, Quentin Tarantino revealed that he was working on a comic book sequel to "Django Unchained" that would team Django with Zorro. The comic was released in November, and now comes word that Sony Pictures is interested in turning it into a movie.

According to leaked emails, Sony Pictures chief Amy Pascal told Tarantino that she's thinks the comic book is "super cool" and would like to "talk about 'Django/Zorro.'" Tarantino replied that the film "could be really fun."

The comic book is set several years after the events of "Django Unchained." In it, Django and his wife Broomhilda settle down in Chicago. Django goes back out on the road to look for work, where he meets Diego de la Vega (aka Zorro), who is the first man Django has met that does not care about the color of his skin. He takes a job as Zorro's bodyguard and is drawn into a fight to help locals break free from their indentured servitude.

At one point, the film was listed as a 2017 release. No word if that's still the case.

Worst Previews wrote:Neill Blomkamp Unveils Concept Art For His "Alien" Sequel

Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) has unveiled several pieces of concept art from an "Alien" film that he was working on. He said that it has nothing to do with the studio, which makes it unclear if this is for a movie, video game or possibly a comic book.

The concept art features Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley and Michael Biehn as Corporal Dwayne Hicks, as well as an Alien Queen, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, and a Xenomorph-style helmet. Check everything out below.

Blomkamp is a massive fan of the "Alien" franchise, but said that he's no longer pursuing the project, which is why he decided to publicly release the concept art.

At least Blomkamp was willing to bring back "Michael Biehn". The original Kyle Reese. Would have been good to see.

Worst Previews wrote:Mark Wahlberg Working on "Boardwalk Empire" Movie, Wants Martin Scorsese to Direct

"Entourage" fans know that the TV series is loosely based on the life of Mark Wahlberg, who is also an executive producer on the show. Wahlberg has been able to complete a successful run of "Entourage" and is now waiting for the release of the "Entourage" movie, which is set to hit theaters on June 5th.

Wahlberg is also an executive producer on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" TV series, which is co-created by Martin Scorsese. And apparently the "Entourage" movie is tracking well, because Wahlberg is now talking to HBO about turning "Boardwalk Empire" into a movie as well.

"My next goal now is to get the movie made and start talking to Martin Scorsese about directing it," he revealed, adding that there are ways to undo all the things that may make it difficult to continue the show as a movie. "We can always go back."

Superhero Hype wrote:Milla Jovovich Confirms August Start for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Last August, actress Milla Jovovich announced that she and her husband Paul W.S. Anderson were expecting their second child together, thus delaying the shooting of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Now she has taken to Facebook (tip of the hat to Bobby Napoli) with word that she is already preparing to return as Alice for the revived shoot in August.

Says Jovovich, “I’m really proud of myself for not gaining the same amount of weight that I did with our first child (75 lbs.) because I have to be ready to start filming ‘Resident Evil- The Final Chapter’ in August of this year and I will also be nursing an infant simultaneously.”

Shooting was initially being prepped for Cape Town, South Africa, which will be one of several locales used for the sixth and (supposed) last part in the long-running Resident Evil franchise. The last film to see release was Resident Evil: Retribution in 2012.

Targeting a September 2, 2016 release date, Anderson returns for his fourth outing as director and writer of the Screen Gems release Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, with actor Wentworth Miller reprising his role as Chris Redfield from 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife.
