The Round-Up

June 19, 2009

The pick of this week’s internet rumors, rumblings and total fabrications. A famous hat pops back up on the radar, the remakes keep on coming, the Rounders boys take a seat back at the table (sort of) and Tom Cruise may be mending fences with Paramount in order to take another Mission Impossible.

Indiana Jones and the Next Big Hit

Shia Le Beouf announced in a recent interview with the BBC that Steven Spielberg had just finished a first draft for the next movie in the Indiana Jones franchise – big news for Indy fans, whether you liked the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls movie or not. Check out the full interview here.

Rounders Writer’s Cash In Some More Chips

Looks like the writing team that brought us Rounders is set to bring another poker story to the big screen, with their story about online casino’s in Costa Rica being picked up by Paramount, and with Leonardo Di Caprio (and his production company) attached. Ain’t it Cool have the details.

The Remakes Are Getting Stranger…

Bride of Frankenstein is this week’s favorite unlikely rumored remake, with Director Neil Burger being the man tagged to get the project rolling. Turns out this is only one of several Monster flicks Universal are pushing at the moment, with the Wolf Man set for release soon, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon also set to go into development. Hokey 1950’s style horror…here we come!

Mission Impossible Now Very Probable

In a move that surprised many, considering the nature of his departure from the studio after a 14 year relationship, Tom Cruise looks to have made amends with Paramount, and is getting set for another addition to the Mission Impossible franchise, under the guidance of JJ Abrams.

Red Dawn Moving Forward

Red Dawn is starting to shape up, and Comingsoon.net has the latest on some key announcements. Writer Tony Gilroy (the guy who did the Bourne series) has been hired to pen the re-make of the 1980’s classic (Go Wolverines!).

Some key casting announcements as well – Josh Peck has been hired to play the role of Matt Eckert (the role oringinally played by Charlie Sheen), whilst Adriann Palicki will play Toni (the role first played by Jennifer Grey). Don Bradley is still set to direct what should be a very, very interesting update.
