Last week, we reported that actor Keanu Reeves is providing the narration for his longtime friend Alex Winter's new documentary Deep Web, which debuted at the South by Southwest Film Festival this past weekend. Both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, who starred in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, appeared at SXSW yesterday, where Alex Winter gave an update on their long-awaited sequel Bill & Ted 3. The project has been in development for several years, and although now it is closer than ever to happening, Alex Winter revealed to Yahoo! Movies that if production doesn't start soon, the sequel may never happen. Here's what he had to say below.
"We're really close. We're just about there. In Hollywood parlance, [that] means we'll either be shooting soon, or it's never going to happen."
Although Alex Winter retired from acting in 1993 to focus on documentary filmmaking, he will »
Justified: Episode 602 “Cash Game” Directed by Dean Parisot Written by Dave Andron and VJ Boyd Directed by Dean Parisot Written by Dave Andron and VJ BoydIn last week’s premiere episode of Justified, we were left with the chilling image of Boyd (Walton Goggins) watching over a sleeping Ava (Joelle Carter). How much does Boyd suspect her? Does he love her so much that he could overlook a betrayal? Think about their relationship and how much they’ve confided in each other. Nearly all of Boyd’s remaining family (and cronies) betrayed him and Ava appears to be the one woman to […] »

The sixth season of Justified keeps humming along with "Cash Game." Written by Dave Andron and VJ Boyd, and directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), the episode's crisp storytelling is reminiscent of the show's superior, even-numbered seasons, which laid out a series of parallel-seeming subplots that converged with wit and grace. Here we saw Boyd's bank robbery, Ava's informing on Boyd, the machinations of the big-bearded real-estate fixer Ty Walker, all converging. As was the case last week, we got the sense of an endgame in progress, not just for all the main characters' stories, but for Harlan County as established in the previous five seasons. Everything is changing; an old way of life is passing away. The obsession with land, ancestry, and old grudges always simmered in the background, but now it's in the foreground.The key scene might've been that conversation between Boyd and Raylan near the end »

Justified, Season 6, Episode 2: “Cash Game”
Directed by Dean Parisot
Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX
Truth be told: not a hell of a lot happens in “Cash Game.” Despite the fact that it only has eleven more episodes to go after this one, Justified is still Justified, and this has never been a series that’s felt the need to hurry up its seasons’ first acts. Instead, it uses its time to sell us on this season’s cast of rogues, as well as indulging in a pleasant number of comic asides, reminding us that, at its core, Justified is a fun series, though that has been difficult to remember throughout some of its recent, darker patches.
Much of the action this week directly follow’s from Boyd’s apparently failed heist last week, including the introduction of the mark, local »

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)
