Carrie remake, Terminator 5, The Walking Dead, The Machine
MGM and Screen Gems are moving forward with a new big screen version of Carrie, that’s said to be less a remake of the 1974 Brian De Palma film, and more of an adaptation of the original Stephen King novel, reckons Deadline. Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa – who wrote the rewrites on the troubled Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark – has been brought aboard to draft the screenplay.
Schwarzenegger Puts Terminator 5 Plans On Hold
Arnie’s personal traumas (secret baby, divorce, etc) have scuppered plans for him making any immediate return to acting, thus scuppering any immediate plans for another Terminator movie. “Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters,” said a representative in an official statement, “and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, the Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.” But what about The Governator? That’s what we really need to know.
The Walking Dead Season Two
TV Guide has a scoop from creator Robert Kirkman on the second season of The Walking Dead. Kirkman, who penned the original comics, reveals that Andrea, played by Laurie Holden, will have a stronger presence by taking her pain and turning it motivation to become one of the protectors of the group such as she did in the comics. “Andrea very much wanted to die in the CDC, so we’re going to be dealing with that. She’ll be learning some guns, and she might not quite get to a certain level, but we are definitely going to be going down that road.” Hopefully, this will address some of the criticism aimed at the first season that the female characters were all a bit too passive.
Vin Diesel In Comedy Robot Movie
According to Deadline, MGM, has hired Diesel to star in and produce an action comedy called The Machine. Diesel will play “a human-like machine created in secrecy by the Pentagon to be the world’s first ultimate weapon. Some 20 years after the machine was decommissioned and buried, The Machine is discovered, reactivated and befriended by a kid. When the government learns that The Machine is back in operation, the ultimate weapon’s mission becomes to protect the family that is harbouring him.” It’s been written by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at the Museum, The Pacifier). Diesel previously played a robot (well the voice, anyway) in Iron Giant.
