Ghostbusters III
Thursday, 31 December 2009 04:40

Ghostbusters writer and original star Harold Ramis has commented as to the status  of Ghostbusters 3.

word from Ramis is that the film will in fact be shooting in the Summer of 2010 , releasing sometime in 2011.

Ramis said, "Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 …."

The Black Hole

Director Joseph Kosinski and producer Sean Bailey will remake Disney's 1979 sci-fi film The Black Hole. This new version will be a "reinvention" (or a reboot or whatever you want to call it) and is being written by Travis Beacham, who worked on the Clash of the Titans script.

The Hunter

Another new comic book adaptation in the works. THR announces that Scarlet Fire Entertainment will produce a feature adaptation of Dare Comics' series The Hunter. Written by Adam Hamdy, The Hunter is about a CIA agent named Gabriel Mot with extraordinary powers. He's tasked with finding those responsible for coordinated attacks on America, and reveals a hidden world of dark beings with tremendous destructive powers. "In a world where monsters walk the Earth, nothing is what it seems." Sounds a bit like the B.P.R.D. or something Guillermo del Toro should direct. Hamdy will create an original Hunter story for the movie.

"We're extremely pleased to be working with Scarlet Fire," said Hamdy, who founded Dare Comics. "They understood The Hunter immediately, and saw in it the potential to create a compelling new universe that loyal fans and newcomers alike will love seeing come to life on the big screen." Scarlet Fire's Steven Pearl and Allan Loeb, the co-writer of 21 and Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, will produce along with Hamdy. "He's succeeded in building a new superhero brand virtually single-handed in a market that is dominated by big companies with very deep pockets," Pearl said.

Originally announced as a sequel way back in 1997, the new project is being helmed by writer-producer Roland Emmerich  in partnership with James Cameron's Lightstorm Entertainment.

Published by Jeff Leins

NutcrackerRobert Zemeckis is planning yet another Christmas-themed motion capture movie.

The director of The Polar Express, Beowulf, and A Christmas Carol is considering a 3-D animated adaptation of E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original novel, “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.”  According to Pajiba’s source, it will not be a re-creation of the Tchaikovsky ballet.

Instead it will be a period piece set in 19th century Russia about the origins of the Nutcracker and the battle between the dolls and the mice.

Alita is a creation from an age of despair. Found by the mysterious Dr. Ido while trolling for cyborg parts, Alita becomes a lethal, dangerous being. She cannot remember who she is, or where she came from. But to Dr. Ido, the truth is all too clear. She is the one being who can break the cycle of death and destruction left behind from Tiphares. But to accomplish her true purpose, she must fight and kill. And that is where Alita's true significance comes to bear. She is an angel from heaven. She is an angel of death. Written by Anthony Harmon

Set in the 26th century, the story takes place 300 years after a societal collapse caused by a major war. In that society, it's a technological dark age following a pinnacle of achievement far beyond where we are right now. Cyborg technology is a way of life. People are augmented a lot as workers, so being a cyborg is not unusual. The main character is a cyborg. She has an organic human brain, and she looks like she's about fourteen years old. She has a completely artificial body and she's lost her memory. She is found in a wreckage and reconstituted by a cyber-surgeon who becomes her surrogate father
