Iron Giant 2: Brad Bird rules out sequel

31 August 2015 10:37 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Vin Diesel may have hinted at The Iron Giant 2 - but director Brad Bird says it's not going to happen...

Vin Diesel is a busy man with sequels right now, given that he's planning to shoot xXx 3 starting this December, before moving onto Fast & Furious 8. On his Facebook page over the weekend, he seemed to tease another one too.

He wrote that "I have been very lucky to have played so many interesting characters ... one of the first and one of my favorites is... the Iron Giant". So far, few people would be disagreeing with his choice. If you've not had the pleasure of watching The Iron Giant movie, then that's something well worth remedying.

Diesel then added "P.S. Don't be surprised when you hear WB announce the sequel".

Surprised? We'd be flat-out shocked. Appreciating that author Ted Hughes also penned a follow-up book, The Iron Woman, it »

Vin Diesel Suggests The Iron Giant 2 Is On The Cards At Warner Bros.

31 August 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fresh off announcing news that he would revisit a role from yesteryear with a sequel to cult actioner xXx, Vin Diesel has taken to his ever-popular Facebook page to tease the potential return of another character. Long before Groot struggled to string more than a few syllables together, Diesel lent his vocal chords to Brad Bird’s directorial debut, The Iron Giant.

Not only did it prove to be a role that would ultimately inform his reticent turn in Guardians of the Galaxy, but the actor’s towering, wholly misunderstood machine carved out an audience to call its own, and even to this day the heart-wrenching animation is considered to be some of Diesel’s finest work. Imagine our excitement, then, now that the actor has quietly dropped a megaton via his social media page that seemingly suggests Warner Bros. is at the very least considering The Iron Giant 2.

Brad Bird's The Iron Giant Is Coming Back to Theaters, Remastered, With New Scenes

30 August 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Director Brad Bird has put together a pretty [puts on sunglasses] incredible body of work so far, including two beloved Pixar films and the histrionically fun Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol. But before he was given mammoth budgets to make what are essentially live-action animated movies, Bird directed the gorgeous The Iron Giant, an animated movie with shades of Stand By Me and The Day the Earth Stood Still. Vin Diesel voices the Giant, giving a genuinely moving performance. (Diesel recently hinted that a sequel may one day happen, but nothing substantial has surfaced yet.) Though lovingly made and impeccably animated (a mix of computer and tradition animation), the film sunk like a heap of scrap in the sea, earning $31 million on a $70 million budget. Now the movie is being rereleased in theaters, remastered and with two new scenes in a "Signature Edition." It'll hit theaters for two »

Vin Diesel Hints At "Iron Giant" Sequel

30 August 2015 8:05 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tiff 2015 announces Kids and Discovery Programme, and adds to overall lineup

26 August 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While the Toronto International Film Festival looks around the world and in all genres to find features for its annual incarnation, one area that receives focus is films aimed at children. With the understanding both that quality cinema is not dependent on its target audience, and that cinephiles can begin at any age, the festival’s Kids Programme highlights such features.

The Discovery Programme, on the other hand, brings together films from first and second time directors, with an eye on emerging talent. The festival has now announced the lineups for both Programmes in the 2015 incarnation of the event, along with further additions to the Cinematheque and Vanguard lineup. The Discovery lineup joins previously announced Canadian features. The films, with their official synopses, can be seen below.
