“Ghostbusters 3” is still moving forward and Jason Reitman (Ivan’s son) is directing it… my thoughts…

So Sony just hired Jason Reitman to be the director of “Ghostbusters 3” which is still in the works. Jason Reitman was the director of movies such as “Juno” and “Up In the Air”. He’s also the son of Ivan Reitman who directed the first two “Ghostbusters”.

Dan Aykroyd has been desperately trying to get GIII made for a long time now ever since the second one. Dan’s original plan for Ghostbusters was the passing of a “torch” kind of movie, the original Ghostbusters passing the torch to young ones. Dan’s been trying to push GIII to get made ever since the 2nd but there has been some setbacks ever since. The biggest setback the film suffered was that Harold Ramis passed away and then Ivan Reitman stepped down from directing GIII ’cause of it. Then Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot happened which was a box office failure.

It seems that Sony is moving forward with GIII still… a third film from the first two original movies.

Will the surviving members of Ghostbusters reprise their roles for the third one? Ya know… will Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray return? We’ll have to wait and see. I think there’s a big chance those guys will be coming back.

A lot of people want to be quick to hate on this since Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” all-female thing was a flop but don’t be so quick to judge.

I think Jason Reitman could do Ghostbusters justice and give the fans exactly what they want. I’m sure Jason will be getting plenty of help from his father Ivan anyways even though Ivan won’t be directing. I think this one could be better than the all-female reboot.

I’m gonna give Jason’s take on “Ghostbusters” a chance. I think he could do a way better job than Paul Feig. I haven’t seen the all-female reboot and don’t think I’ll see that one at all. I just hope Jason makes the next movie more like the first one. Hopefully the original cast comes back: Ernie, Dan, Bill, Rick Moranis, Sigourney, etc. Jason said that this is a continuation of the original series so there is a great chance that everyone might be coming back. It would be nice if Louis Tully returned though ’cause that was a great character.

Report: “Evil Dead” remake gets the greenlight by Sony Pictures and Film District…

Announced earlier today, Sony Pictures and Film District have teamed up with Ghost House to make, the “Evil Dead” remake. Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell will help produce the film. Diablo Cody had a hand in re-writing some of the script.

Read the full press release, here.

They should start with the casting soon, now that they finally found a studio. Now the question is, who is going to play Ash? Will Bruce Campbell reprise the role? If Bruce only signed on to produce the film and not act, he probably isn’t going to return, but you never know. Maybe they’re keeping his return a secret for now? They’re probably gonna go for a younger actor to play Ash.

Honestly, I don’t care who plays Ash, as long this film stays true to the originals, I’ll go see it. It still needs to be a low budget B-movie like the first two.

You know what? Since found footage movies like “Paranormal Acitivity” are getting so popular, I think it would be interesting if they would take that direction.

It would be great if Bruce returns as the lead! So I hope he does sign on. I love the Evil Dead films and a Bruce Campbell fan as well. If Bruce doesn’t star in the leading role, I hope he’ll get a cameo for a different role at least. There can’t be an Evil Dead movie without him!

Report: Team Bigelow on the hunt to acquire rights for killing Osama Bin Laden movie…

Sony Pictures announced today that they are on the hunt to acquire U.S. and Canadian distribution rights for Kathryn Bigelow’s movie on killing, Osama Bin Laden.

Read the full story, here.

I really liked, “The Hurt Locker”, but will this be a better movie? I hope so. Kathryn Bigelow is great at making war films, so hopefully this film will have a good script and a good cast. I hope they don’t get Jeremy Renner to star.

The question is, who will play Bin Laden in this movie? I’ll imagine they’ll get some unknown Arabic actor to play him. They won’t get a big name for Bin Laden for sure.

Report: Will and Jaden Smith to re-team for M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi action adventure flick…

M. Night Shymalan’s last couple of movies, “The Last Airbender”, and “Devil” have both bombed in the box office terribly. Look like he’s trying to do whatever it takes to be a box office success again, by having Will Smith and his son Jaden Smith to star in a film together. M. Night Shyamalan will direct a sci action adventure movie, which will be about a young boy who crashed his spaceship on an abandoned planet, his father was onboard the ship, they navigate the planet while there.

Deadline, reports.

This film is gonna suck no matter how hard M. Night tries to save his failing career. I only liked two of M. Night’s films, “Unbreakable” and “The Sixth Sense” were both excellent films but the rest of M. Night’s films are total garbage. Plus, M. Night is overrated.

Report: Tom Hanks will play Capt. Richard Phillips for Somali Pirate Saga…

The controversial story of the, Maersk Alabama, cargo ship hijacked by Somali Pirates in April of 2009, have made huge in the news. Sony Pictures is finally moving forward with the big screen movie based on this story. Look like Tom Hanks have said “yes” to starring as Capt. Richard Phillips for the role.

What do you think? Do you like Tom as Capt. Phillips? Tom would have to gain a little more weight. He would also have to grow a beard and mustache to match Capt. Phillips look. The makeup and hairstylists can make Tom look like Capt. Phillips easily. Knowing how great of an actor Tom Hanks is, Hanks can easily make his speaking voice sound exactly like Capt. Phillips’s speaking voice. I’m pretty sure Tom will nail this role with no problem.

I actually like Tom as Capt. Phillips and it’s a good choice!

See the full story here at, Deadline.

Who are they going to get for Andrea Phillips, Richard’s wife? They probably will get a big name actress for her too, just don’t get Julia Roberts please, anybody but her.

Report: First, “The Karate Kid” remake…now Will Smith is moving forward with the “Annie” remake starring his daughter, Willow Smith…

Announced today, Overbrook Entertainment has teamed up with Sony Pictures to work with Will Smith and Jay-Z on bringing an “Annie” remake to the big screen. They have already signed, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett’s daughter, Willow Smith to play the leading role. In the 1982 original, Aileen Quinn, played the Annie role, it looks like Willow will be playing that role. Oliver Warbucks was played by the great, Albert Finney.

Read the full story at, Deadline.

So what we’re getting is an “Annie” version for blacks? There will be rap and R&B songs being sung throughout the film? That’s what it’s looking like.

What black actor will land the Oliver Warbucks role? It wouldn’t surprise me if Will Smith himself signs on that to that role. Wonder how they’re gonna do the B&O Bridge scene at the end of the movie? They will obviously change the “Annie” name of the leading character, to give it a black feeling.

I’m not trying to sound like a racist or anything but I don’t like this idea. “The Karate Kid” remake they did was actually a very good movie, but this one is going to suck. I used to be obsessed with the “Annie” movie when I was a kid. Used to watch it all the time. Do the black people really want an “Annie” remake? This might be popular with black children, but the adults I can’t see them getting into this.

Report: Frankenstein on his way back to the big screen, will be written by Craig Fernandez…

Well look like Mary Shelly’s “Frankenstein” is getting another remake but this time it will be a contemporary version, being written by a screenwriter named, Craig Fernandez. Read all about it, here.

I hope the new movie will stay true to the 1931 “Frankenstein” movie with Boris Karloff, but I’m having this bad feeling that this new “Frankenstein” movie Deadline is reporting, maybe another boring CGI popcorn fest and it might be in 3D. It should be a serious horror film with acting talent and good film making.

BREAKING NEWS: Rhys Ifans officially casted as new “Spiderman” villain…

Rhys Ifans, an actor from Wales, has been officially casted by Sony Pictures as the main villain, for the next “Spiderman” reboot. The studios are refusing to say what villain he is playing, however, so let the guessing games begin.

See the article here at, Deadline.

I hope they won’t start the reboot with the Green Goblin again. That’s already been done when Willem Dafoe played the Green Goblin for the original “Spiderman” movie with Sam Raimi, Tobey Maguire. I didn’t like, the Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, “Spiderman” movies. They were very badly done. Sam Raimi made those movies way too cartoonish for me.

Hope they do the next, “Spiderman” movie good ’cause the cast is looking interesting so far. I’m actually glad Tobey Maguire is no longer Spiderman ’cause I never liked him as an actor anyways.

I’m gonna go with Doctor Octopus.
