Central Intelligence hasn’t even gone into production yet, but it seems as though New Line could have a potential heavy hitter on their hands. It’s being reported that Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart will step in front of the lens for Rawson Marshall Thurber in the spring. Hart will play a high school sports star-turned-accountant who’s gearing up for a class reunion. Prior to the event, he’s contacted by an old classmate (Johnson) who was the school bullies’ prime target back in the day. Now, however, Johnson’s character is a CIA contract killer and he winds up recruiting Hart’s character to help him stop a plot to sell military secrets. It's a good thing those behind the film took their time with this one, whether it was intentional or not. There's no way a Dean Parisot-directed rendition with Ed Helms in Hart's role »

With 'LexCorp' villain 'Lex Luthor' confirmed as one of the super-villains appearing in the "Man Of Steel" sequel, "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", other DC villains continue to wait patiently on the sidelines for their live-action moment in the DC movie universe, including 'Brainiac' and 'Bizarro':
'Brainiac', who will appear as the 'Bag Bad' in Zack Snyder's "Justice League" feature, debuted in DC's "Action Comics" #242 (July 1958), created by writer Otto Binder and illustrator Al Plastino, as an extraterrestrial android, responsible for shrinking and stealing 'Kandor', capital city of Superman's beloved home planet 'Krypton'.
Due to complex storylines involving time travel, cloning and revisions of DC's continuity, several variations of Brainiac have appeared, with most incarnations depicting him as a green-skinned being in humanoid form, with a set of diodes protruding from his skull.
His name itself is a combination of the words 'brain' and 'maniac', which squares him nicely into the super-villain category. »

Ryan Gosling has managed to be one of the most popular and well-liked actors in the biz, and all this without being in any superhero/comic-book blockbusters. But that could change very soon. The actor is in talks to play the lead role in Doctor Strange. He's also being courted for Summit's The Secret Life of Houdini: The Making of America's First Superhero, and David Ayer's Suicide Squad, which is about a super-villains team, set up at Warner Bros.
Ever since it was confirmed that Joaquin Phoenix would not be playing Doctor Strange, actors like Gosling, Jared Leto, Justin Theroux, Ethan Hawke and Keanu Reeves, have been hoping to land the lead role. Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but the film is still slated for July 8, 2016.

With Warner Bros announcing a slate of super-hero films connecting to "Man Of Steel" and "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", count on another popular DC Comics anti-hero, waiting patiently on the sidelines for his live-action cameo in the DC movie universe:
The loveable 'Bizarro' was created by writer Otto Binder and illustrator George Papp as a 'mirror image' of Superman debuting in "Superboy" #68 (1958).
Since then, Bizarro has appeared as an antagonist to Superman.
His origins started with a scientist demonstrating a newly invented 'duplicating ray' to Superboy...
...but an accident causes the ray to duplicate the teen hero, as a flawed imitation with chalky white skin and childlike erratic behavior.
Bizarro is depicted as having all the abilities of Superman...
...although in some incarnations several of these traits have been reversed.
These powers include 'freeze vision' instead of 'heat vision', 'flame breath' instead of 'freeze breath', 'vacuum breath' instead of 'super breath', »

Having resisted joining superhero tentpoles in the past, and showing a decided reluctance to sign up to multi-film deals, actor Ryan Gosling may be changing his mind.
Heat Vision reports that the actor has had meetings with Marvel Studios to discuss playing "Doctor Strange," and is being courted to star in David Ayer's film take on the DC comics title "Suicide Squad".
In regards to the latter, the likes of Will Smith, Tom Hardy and "The Wolf of Wall Street" actress Margot Robbie are all reportedly fielding offers to hop onboard. Gosling was previously keen on playing Hal Jordan in "Green Lantern" but balked at the contract which called for sequels.

One of the many actors notorious for not giving into the franchise machine is Ryan Gosling, but that may change as three major studios are courting him for three big movies, including Doctor Strange, Suicide Squad and The Secret Life of Houdini.
In the recent past, Ryan Gosling has refused to give into the temptations of a super hero movie, especially one that would require him to sign on for sequels. But the actor may be softening his stance on that, unlike Joaquin Phoenix who walked away from the Doctor Strange role.
The actor is confirmed to have met with Marvel for Doctor Strange, and he has an offer out for Summit's The Secret Life of Houdini, which is now subtitled The Making of America's First Superhero. Sources close to the actor also reveal that he is being aggressively courted for a role in the DC villain ensemble action-adventure Suicide Squad, »
According to THR, Warner Brothers is already looking at actors to fill the roles in their recently-announced Suicide Squad film, which will be helmed by Fury and End of Watch director David Ayer. The studio is reportedly looking to fill the film with A-list talent, and have already approached Will Smith, Ryan Gosling, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy.
Despite the fact that the project is still in early development, the actors are “fielding offers” as we speak as the studio is “making overtures for what is to be an A-list ensemble piece filled with colorful anti-heroes.” Yep, sounds like the Suicide Squad!
Gosling is also eying the lead in Dean Parisot’s Houdini, while Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) is currently enjoying a nice, busy schedule with high-profile projects like David Yate’s Tarzan and the Ghost in the Shell adaptation. Whether or not either of them will »

During a promotional interview for his latest film John Wick, Keanu Reeves has given an update on the current state of the planned third outing for Bill S. Preston Esq and Ted “Theodore” Logan in Bill & Ted 3, which has Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) attached to direct from a script by original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon…
“We have to get the script in the right place,” Reeves tells Coming Soon. “Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place. What is the reason to make this movie besides nostalgia or the love of these characters. Where can they be in their life that can be a story that is worth telling or has something in it and is funny? They have that. It didn’t help that the first script that they brought in was probably budgeted at $150 million dollars. »

Bill and Ted, the two slackers that could...survive. With Alex Winter (Bill) bemoaning having to produce this project at the slow Hollywood pace while still in the public eye, it's a constant reminder not to get too excited, just a little excited.
Well, Keanu Reeves might have blown all of that and turned up the excitement level revealing that Bill & Ted 3 with have paradoxes, wormholes and much ado about a fated song. First, he talks about the ongoing process looking for a financier for a potentiially $150 million dollar script for a property that has no international appeal, Then he got down to the coolness.
Coming Soon got the scoop:
Reeves: Yeah, Dean's re-read it and I think he likes it. It's kind of like… I call it "gravity," you »
There is a trio of Part III sequels currently creeping towards becoming a reality that we constantly hear about. Last week, Ghostbusters finally took a giant leap ahead, confirming director Paul Feig along with its completely rebooted all-female concept. While Ron Perlman failed to provide any substantial update on Hellboy 3 over the weekend at New York Comic Con, John Wick star Keanu Reeves did have an update on Bill & Ted 3. He was able to give new story details and some interesting time twists, extrapolating on what co-star Alex Winter had to say earlier this month. There will be wormholes!
Keanu Reeves claims that Dean Parisot is still attached as a director. He may be best remembered as the driving force behind Galaxy Quest and he was at the helm of last summer's sequel Red 2. Reeves also confirms that the story will still revolve around the creation of the greatest song in the world, »
I'm just one of many fans that would love to see this Bill & Ted 3 movie happen. The script for it has been in development for a couple of years already, and one day they'll get it to a point where it will be able to move to the next step. During an interview with Comingsoon.net, Keanu Reeves discusses the film in great detail. He talks about where it is in development; some of the hold ups that it has been having; director Dean Parisot; and the story. He even describes a scene from the movie, which sounds hilarious.
"We have to get the script in the right place. Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place. »

It seems like it's no closer to arriving on screen, but Bill & Ted 3 is still very much happening. In a new interview over at Coming Soon to promote his upcoming movie John Wick, Keanu Reeves has given an update on the film, and the work of screenwriters Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson.
"Chris and Ed have been working really hard over a couple of years to get the draft in the right place", Reeves said, revealing that getting the screenplay to lock where it needs to be has been the prevailing issue. The challenge: "what is the reason to make this movie besides nostalgia or the love of these characters. Where can they be in their life that can be a story that is worth telling or has something in it and is funny? »
The last word we got about the long-developing sequel to follow Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey had Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot attached to direct, but beyond some hints from Keanu Reeves about the plot of the film, we haven't heard anything new about the sequel. But Reeves' co-star and Wyld Stallyns bandmate Alex Winter recently caught up with Yahoo and he says it's still in the works, but it's just taking awhile to get the script in perfect shape. But the good news is that producers and financiers are already on board, but the script is still getting in shape to go into production. When asked about the long road Bill & Ted 3 has already had, Winter said: “The thing we had going against us is that word got out. That was kind of a bummer. It just takes a long time to put a movie together. »

It feels like Bill & Ted have really just been in the air recently. My twitter feed the past few weeks has been ripe with references to both Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey. The saturation got to the point where I even rewatched the former film earlier this week and found it surprisingly sharp. So it's with no degree of displeasure that I report that there appears to be some forward momentum on Bill & Ted 3. Several years ago we learned that a script for the film had indeed been completed by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon but when you're trying to get a third installment of a twentysomething-year-old franchise off the ground that's the least of your problems (especially considering the fact that the original two films, while profitable, weren't box office juggernauts). But, according to Alex Winter, there's some real movement on the project, which will be directed by Galaxy Quest »

Remember before Keanu Reeves was a badass in The Matrix he was that doofus in a ’80s comedy about time travel that probably isn’t as good as you remember it? You know, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure! It was totally excellent and featured life lessons to live by like “Be Excellent to Each Other” and “Party On Dudes” as eloquently delivered by Abraham Lincoln in a high school auditorium. Yeah, it was totally excellent and probably ruined your ability to pronounce “Socrates” correctly.
The film was so popular that it also got a sequel and children’s cartoon, and now 23 years in the making, people are still talking about Bill & Ted 3, even though George Carlin is dead and you’re not quite sure what happened to Alex Winter.
Now Winter has revealed additional plot details for the third film to Yahoo, saying the characters will be all-grown up and »

We've been hearing about "Bill and Ted 3" for many years, but according to Alex Winter, the project is still happening with director Dean Parisot (Galaxy Question), as well as Winter and Keanu Reeves. "It just takes a long time to put a movie together," said Winter. "Now we're having to build this thing in public, which is fine. I just feel bad [the fans] have to get dragged through this long, boring, protracted process." The actor went on to say that the movie will feature Bill and Ted in the 40s. "It's all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up. It's really sweet and really f*cking funny," he explained. "It fits very neatly in the [series]. It's not going to feel like a reboot. The concept is really funny: What if you're middle-aged, haven't really grown up, and you're supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, »
Fasten your seat belts – Bill and Ted are going on another ride.
In an interview with Yahoo, Alex Winter finally gave an update on the long journey to a third feature film in the Bill & Ted franchise. A 23-year journey, to be exact. Winter played Bill S. Preston Esq. in the original 1989 science fiction comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and the sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey two years later in 1991 opposite Keanu Reeves as Ted “Theodore” Logan. Now, everyone’s favorite time traveling slackers have gotten a little older.
” will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, »

Bill & Ted 3 is comparable to Ghostbusters 3 in that it's a long-awaited sequel to an 80s franchise that we often hear about, but may never actually see. Bill & Ted 3, though, may be a little closer to happening as it actually has a completed screenplay. Star Alex Winter, who has helped guide the story along with co-star Keanu Reeves and writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson, has offered us an update on the movie, revealing that we will see 'many versions' of Bill and Ted in this outing.
It's been 23 years since we last saw Ted 'Theodore' Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq. in 1991's Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, and a lot has changed since then. Except that Bill and Ted didn't save the world as they thought they would. And the pair haven't quite grown up.
Alex Winter, explains:
"[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it's all about Bill and Ted grown up, »
Wyld Stallyns groupies will be happy tonight as Alex Winter has been sharing details about the forth-coming Bill And Ted 3. Considerably lesser known than his on-screen partner, Winter played the Bill half of the duo. Ted of course was played perfectly by Keanu Reeves. The first film, Bill And Ted’S Excellent Adventure saw two slackers travel through time in an attempt to pass their history class. A cartoon series (which was fantastic) and a sequel, Bill And Ted’S Bogus Journey, followed but that was all the way back in 1991.
Fans have long wanted a reunion with their favourite air guitarists, and after Reeves expressed an interest it seems like the project is inching ever closer. Here’s what Winter had to say about how things are progressing:
“Me and Keanu and [original writers] Chris [Matheson] and Ed [Solomon] are all very close and have remained close over the years,” says Winter. “We »

We have been hearing about the potential Bill And Ted 3 for years now (23 to be exact) and it still seems that we are on the cusp of it actually happening. After numerous rewrites and changes, Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves both still seem very invested in making it happen. So what is the hold-up? In an interview with Yahoo Movies UK, Winter explained that despite the screenplay being completed in 2012 and Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot being involved, there was still a need to draft it »
