Another interesting rumor from MarketSaw says the Lizard could be the sole villain in Spider-Man 4. This would make sense with Dylan Baker back for more Dr. Curt Connors. Along with Sam Raimi stating he wants to "get back to basics" with the fourth film. Having an established character like Dr. Connors becoming The Lizard makes perfect sense. Let's hope Bruce Campbell's role in the film sets him up as the 5th film's villain.
IGN has an interesting casting rumor for Guy Ritchie's Lobo. They say Clancy Brown could play the intergalatic bounty hunter. Brown is best known for genre roles in Highlander and Starship Troopers. He seems the Ron Perlman type so if he is willing to sit in a makeup chair for the film I'd cast him.
MarketSaw is under the impression that Avatar 2 won't be set on Pandora but a new planet. I'm sort of happy that there is a chance Cameron could try something different for the sequel.
Things are heating up on Paramount's reboot of Dune. There are rumors that Peter Berg has left the project to focus on Battleship for Universal Pictures. The two directors who are rumored to be in mind to replace Berg are Niel Marshall (Centurion) and Niell Blomkamp (District). I'm actually glad Berg is off this film, either Marshall or Blomkamp could do a lot better.
The upcoming high profile racing movie Go Like Hell seems to be attracting some high profile acting talent. Brad Pitt, Josh Brolin and Matt Damon are been rumored to be circling the film.
Martin Scorcese's Sintra biopic seems to be further than expected as actors are being rumored. Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney are all being in the running to play Old Blue Eyes.
Woody Allen's next film finally has a title and somewhat of a synopsis. It will be titled You Will Met A Tall Dark Stranger and it revolves around different members of a family, their tangled love lives and their attempts to try to solve their problems. The film will be released sometime in 2010.
Broken Lizard's Slammin' Salmon is getting a December release date.
Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds) and January Jones (Mad Med) will star alongside Liam Neeson (A-Team) in Unknown White Male.
Paramount Pictures is considering on making a sequel to Paranormal Activity.
Sly Stallone has revealed plans to make Rocky VII after Rambo V. The film could be a drama focused on Rocky growing old. I have a feeling this film won't involve a boxing match.
Billy Connolly (Boondock Saints) says he might have a role in Troy Duffy's next film The Good King.
Shane Black (Lethal Weapon series) is writing a new Doc Savage film. Based on the pulp comics of the 30s and 40s.
Plans for a Saw 7 & 8 have been made official and Jigsaw star Toben Bell wants a shot at directing. I'm shocked how Twisted Pictures hasn't asked Saw 7 helmer to return.
Starting in November you'll be able to instantly view Netflix rentals via your Playstation 3. Another move to edge out other competitive video game consoles.
