The latest and greatest… Not a lot worth reporting, but here goes.

 

         “Iron Man 2” – Apparently, Marvel wants to start shooting next year and release the movie in 2010. Add to that the fact that the CEO doesn’t want to pay director Jon Favreau the regular director’s fare, which is great when the guy took a pay cut to make a movie for Marvel that has now grossed near $1 billion. According to other sources, Marvel thinks that “Iron Man” sequels will stand on their own, irregardless of the director. Yeah, right. Let’s not forget the fact that it took almost 3 years for this movie to come out. Why spend three years when you can do it in 1? Quality assurance I’m sure…

         A stuntman was killed on the set of John Woo’s new movie, “Red Cliff.”

         Sony/Columbia Pictures have now signed to do a movie based on “The Smurfs.” Insert your own “Smurfy” comment here.

         “Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen” has commenced production.

         Will there be a “Spider-Man 4?” The studios are asking for it, and a script is being written. Closed-door talks are underway with the main subject being possible “re-casting.” Sam Raimi is quoted as saying that he would like to direct again…

         Pixar is gearing-up for “John Carpenter from Mars,” based on the character created by Edgar Burroughs.

         Leo DiCaprio is going to play Atari founder Nolan Bushnell. No word if yet if he has to do research by spending hours playing “Pong.”

         “Capricorn One” is the next to go through the Hollywood Remake Machine.

         F. Gary Gray will be directing the new Marvin Gaye biopic.

         Ben Kinglsey will play the main villain in the new “Prince of Persia” movie (based off the videogame).

         Adam Sandler has now created a horror division called Scary Madison so he can produce his new movie, “Shortcut.” It’s about two brothers who find the perfect shortcut in their congested town until they find out why it’s never been used before…

         Guy Ritchie (the patron saint of “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels” and “Snatch”) will be re-booting the Sherlock Holmes franchise.

         Brian DePalma will be helming a movie about the “Boston Stranglers.”

         “Halloween 2” is looking for a new director.
