Simon West Lines Up New Project With The Who, Says He Would Make 'Con Air 2' If It Took Place "In Space"

2 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

When your directorial debut is “Con Air,” that one-time TNT staple with Nicolas Cage sporting a sweet mullet, you’re pretty much guaranteed to continue working in that lower-tier Jerry Bruckheimer mold. Director Simon West, however, seems intent on bucking that trend with a very curious project. ScreenDaily is reporting that the “Stolen” director is currently developing “a TV series about London’s music scene in the 1960s” and he’s somehow roped The Who into helping him do it. The show – tentatively called “Mods and Rockers” – will take some inspiration from the English band’s sixth studio album, the rock opera-cum-double-album, Quadrophenia, which is set in 1965 London and Brighton, and founding members Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend are eyeing to co-produce the show as well as handle the music duties. As West describes it, the show “will also cover the rockers’ side of the story and spills out into the wider. »

Con Air 2 Might Take Place In The Most Ridiculous Location Possible

12 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Set the bar as high or as low as you want: one of the great American action movies of the nineties is Simon West's Con Air: a bombastically ridiculous slice of Jerry Bruckheimer excess where one man must stand alone against a plane taken over by vicious convicts. Simon West took what was, on paper, another Die Hard variation (Die Hard On A Prison Plane!) and loaded it with brutal R-Rated thrills, outsized characters and a self-mocking sense of humor that set it apart from its peers. For years, fans have speculated about the follow-up. And so has director Simon West, it seems. Now all we need is an executive crazy enough to make Con Air 2. Simon West spoke to ScreenDaily about his new project Salty when the conversation turned to a potential Con Air 2. And West was prepared. Oh, was he prepared. "There are always rumors about »

Con Air director Simon West stated he would like to direct Con Air 2

12 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Not exactly one of Jerry Bruckheimer crowning achievements but a beloved cult classic none the less (like Patrick Swayze's "best" film in the fictional town of Jasper, Missouri). Love it or hate it, Con Air did rake in $223 million at the box office worldwide. Regardless of the critics, director Simon West wants to direct a sequel...in space.

In an interview with Screen Daily he says: There are always rumors about a Con Air 2. I would do it if it was completely turned on its head. Con Air in space, for example – a studio version where they’re all robots or the convicts are reanimated as super-convicts, or where the good guys are bad guys and the bad guys are good guys. Something shocking. If it was clever writing it could work.

This type of mindset should not come as complete shock considering he has been entertaining audiences with »

Con Air Director Simon West Says He’d Like to Make Con Air 2 a “Con Air in Space” Sequel

22 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the more curious sequel possibilities floating around the past few years has been Con Air 2.  Director Simon West’s 1997 actioner was a modest success at the box office, grossing $224 million worldwide, and while it was a classic Jerry Bruckheimer actioner with many quotable Nicolas Cage lines and a nutty John Malkovich performance, it was somewhat forgotten as the bigger and more four-quadrant friendly blockbusters of the 2000s started changing the moviegoing landscape.  However, fans of Con Air (myself included) were intrigued to hear back in 2011 that West was keen on making a Con Air sequel, and while the film has obviously failed to materialize, West recently spoke a bit more about what he’d like to do with the follow-up, and the “hook” may surprise you.  More after the jump. Speaking with ScreenDaily about seeking out crowd-funding for his next feature, the action comedy Salty, West spoke about »

The Hey U Guys Instant Watching Guide – July 28th 2014

29 July 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Killing was an American remake from AMC based on the nordic noir show popularised over here by showings on BBC 4. The Us version moved things to Seattle where it rained constantly and revolved around the murder of Rosie Larson. Unfairly compared to Twin Peaks when it debuted, it was nonetheless something of a hit on Channel 4 for at least two seasons. I lost track of it around the mid-point of season two, not because I didn’t like it, I enjoyed it lots despite its grimness but it became impossible to keep up with the weekly scheduled showings and 4Od was, and still is not very good. From what I hear season two wrapped up the murder of Larson and season three moved on to a new mystery which was just as gripping.

The reason I mention this anyway is that like Arrested Development, Netflix has picked up »

24 July 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Dead men tell no tales, but it looks like the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has at least one more story in it. The fifth installment of the film series, Dead Men Tell No Tales, was officially given a release date of July 7, 2017.  Originally, the sequel was set to premiere in summer 2015, but after the $190 million flop that was summer 2013’s The Lone Ranger—starring Pirates’ Johnny Depp and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and co., the same team behind the franchise—the release was delayed [...] »

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Gets A Release Date

23 July 2014 6:21 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Shiver me timbers and blow the man down (other hoary old pirate expressions are available, speak to your local quartermaster for details) – Jack Sparrow is back. Three years after Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides sailed into cinemas, its hull pockmarked by critical broadsides, Disney have officially announced the fifth instalment in the long-running nautical franchise, and it turns out you'll have to wait three more years for it. Plus! Its subtitle is Dead Men Tell No Tales, and uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer has recruited some new blood to helm the series' quinquel.After Gore Verbinski and Rob Marshall, this time the director’s chair will have to be widened a bit to accommodate two microphone wielders: Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. The duo are probably best known for the Scandi-sailing adventure Kon-Tiki, where they proved their saltwater credentials with aplomb.Given that On Stranger Tides eventually grossed over $1 billion »

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 Release Date Set for 2017

23 July 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Captain Jack Sparrow will set sail and enjoy a pint or two of rum once again as Disney has reset the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 release date for July 7, 2017.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was originally scheduled to be released on July 10, 2015. After a series of false starts and delays, it became clear that Disney was not going to hit that date. A tentative summer 2016 release was expected, but now we'll have to wait another three years for Johnny Depp to don the Jack Sparrow makeup and mannerisms once again.

One of the reasons for the delay might have been the departure of uber producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who recently left Disney to explore new waters at Paramount. Bruckheimer produced all four previous Pirates of the Caribbean films that have amassed over $3.7 billion worldwide combined at the box office.

Looking ahead, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 doesn't  have any direct competition on its post-July 4th release date. »

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Now Has A 2017 Release Date

23 July 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Disney has refused to get their ducks in order with regards to Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The last film in the series, the not-well-regarded Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides nonetheless made literally a billion dollars more than your favorite indie movie this year, but aside from hiring new directors and keeping up appearances with Jerry Bruckheimer, this franchise has stayed dormant. Until now... set sail for 2017, scalywags. Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has a release date of July 8th, 2017, says the Twitters! Yo ho, yo ho...box office plundering we shall go! Disney's Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 will set sail July 7, 2017.. Exhibitor Relations (@ERCboxoffice) July 23, 2014 That's three years away, if you're keeping score at home. Plenty of time for Johnny Depp to start grooming his impeccable Jack Sparrow beard. Weirdly enough, Pirates is in sole possession of that »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Will Set Sail In Summer 2017

23 July 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We all knew that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was bad, but none of us imagined that the film’s lack of quality would delay the bankable Disney franchise this much – especially because On Stranger Tides grossed $1.04 billion, the second-highest for the series and the 13th highest-grossing of all time worldwide. To take its grosses another way though, On Stranger Tides was also the lowest-grossing domestically, so perhaps Disney’s alarm bells were somewhat warranted. Regardless, it’s been announced today that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will finally be hitting screens on July 7th, 2017, a whopping six years after the last installment.

Originally, the movie was set to arrive next summer, but it was delayed in order to work on the script. Kon-Tiki breakouts Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg are still set to direct the tentpole, giving us at least one reason to be excited for the fivequel. »

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' will set sail at a later date than expected

23 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jack Sparrow and his many fans are going to have to wait on dry land little while longer before heading back to sea.  Remember when Disney moved "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" from 2015 to 2016? Now, they've decided to puch it back all the way to summer 2017.  "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" is now officially set to open July 7, 2017.  It will face plenty of competition at the box office, opening one week after "Despicable Me 3" and a week before "The Fantastic Four 2." Other summer 2017 offerings will include "The Lego Movie 2," untitled movies from Marvel and Pixar, and, most likely, "Transformers 5," "Terminator: Genesis" and "Justice League." The "Pirates" move is reportedly to allow co-directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg ("Kon-Tiki") and Jeff Nathanson to improve the script, according to Collider. Not much is known about the plot, but producer Jerry Bruckheimer has indicated that »

Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Gets New Release Date

23 July 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

A few days after they announced the release dates for five upcoming Marvel movies, Walt Disney Studios has announced the release date for the next installment in another billion dollar franchise, the Johnny Depp-led Pirates of the Caribbean 5. The fifth film in the hugely successful franchise will be released July 7, 2017. Last May, it was announced that Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg would direct the film and last August, the film's full title was revealed to be Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Johnny Depp, who plays Jack Sparrow, are both set to return. Initially, Bruckheimer had hoped the film would be able to make it to summer 2016, but due to script issues and contract negotiations, it looks like 2017 was their best option. Its release will be sandwiched between Despicable Me 3 (June 30) and Fantastic Four 2 (July 14). It joins »

Disney Dates ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5′ For July 2017

Disney has slotted Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 for July 7, 2017. Right now the pic has the date to itself but will have some competition from Fantastic Four 2, which bows on July 14 that year, and Despicable Me 3, which opens June 30. Disney initially was eyeing summer 2016 to release the latest installment of the franchise, being directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, but the decision was made that it wasn’t worth rushing until the script was right.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Has a New Release Date; July 7th 2017

23 July 2014 8:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

About a year ago Disney pulled Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales from the 2015 release calendar so that Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg would have more time to work on Jeff Nathanson’s script, which they apparently wanted to tweak.  A wise move considering how On Stranger Tides turned out (even if its international box office was higher than its predecessors). But now we have an official new release date for the film.  Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (apparently that's still the official title) will now arrive on July 7th, 2017.  Hit the jump for more on the new Pirates of the Caribbean 5 release date. One of the encouraging things about the delay in terms of working on the script is that this new take may harken back to the superior 2003 original film (I think the franchise has been going steadily downhill »

After a few false starts and delays, “Pirates of the Caribbean 5″ will sail into theaters on July 7, 2017, Walt Disney Studios said Wednesday. The latest rum-soaked installment in the buchaneer franchise has the date to itself, but faces competition from the July 14th release of “Fantastic Four 2″ and the June 30th debut of “Despicable Me 3.”

Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg, who got their sea legs with “Kon Tiki,” will direct.
