National Treasure 3 to shoot within the next two years

22 October 2013 3:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

National Treasure 3 may actually be happening. The last entry, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, was released in Christmas 2007 and it looks like the franchise may now become a trilogy.

Director Jon Turteltaub and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have been optimistic with the script and now Turteltaub has announced that he aims to begin filming sometime over the next two years. While on the press junket for his latest film Last Vegas, Turteltaub revealed to Collider that "we want to do the movie, Disney wants to do the movie. We're just having the damnedest time writing it. I’ll bet that within two years, we’ll be shooting that movie."

"I’d say we’re about half-way there," he continued. "It’s not only writing a great historical mystery, but we’ve gotta write something that has nothing to do with anything we’ve done before. The goal is to always have an original sequel, »

‘The Lone Ranger’ Writer Terry Rossio Hired to Pen ‘Masters of the Universe’

8 October 2013 3:42 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »









By the power of Grayskull! There are massive changes for He-Man.

Columbia Pictures recruited Terry Rossio to write a new draft of “Masters of the Universe,” based on the Mattel toy line.

Rossio wrote the screenplays of several movies including a few “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies, “The Legend of Zorro,” “National Treasure: Book of Secrets” and this past summer’s “The Lone Ranger.”

It was also announced that Jon M. Chu (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”) is no longer attached to the project.

The Hollywood Reporter did not state the reasons re-starting the project. Hopefully, this is for the better.

Masters of the Universe Loses Director Jon M. Chu

7 October 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Jon M. Chu is no longer attached to direct Universal's Masters of the Universe adaptation, although the project has gained a new screenwriter with Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger) signing on.

No reason was given for the director's departure, but he had been attached to the languishing project since July 2012. The filmmaker signed on to direct G.I. Joe 3 back in June, and we also reported in August that the filmmaker was being sought to direct another Paramount sequel, Star Trek 3.

Prior to Terry Rossio's involvement, the Masters of the Universe script was worked on by Richard Wenk (The Expendables 2) and the writing team of Alex Litvak and Michael Finch (Predators).

Little is known about the story, which was previously called Greyskull, except that it will be set on He-Man's home planet of Eternia, which He-Man defends from Skeletor. The original He-Man and the Masters of »

NBC Nabs CIA Drama From Sony TV, Davis Entertainment & Greg Poirier With Penalty

13 September 2013 11:30 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: NBC‘s The Blacklist, a drama about a criminal working with the FBI from Sony Pictures TV and Davis Entertainment, is among the hottest new series this fall. Now NBC, Sony and Davis Entertainment are teaming for another hourlong project about a criminal, this time set at the CIA. Written by feature writer Greg Poirier (National Treasure 2), Wolfe, which has received a script commitment with penalty, is described as a tongue-in-cheek high-stakes show that sends up the spy genre. It centers on an enterprising criminal who discovers the CIA’s biggest agent, Westley Wolfe, is actually a fake, an invented hero meant to distract the public from their recent failures. The criminal assumes the spy’s identity and steps into his sexy world-travelling life. The CIA can’t out him or else they’d be outing themselves. Poirier and Davis Entertainment’s John Davis and John Fox executive produce. »

You May Be An Adult by the Time Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Comes Out

12 September 2013 1:00 AM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

Update: Actually...Disney decided to wait to put off releasing Pirates of the Caribbean 5, which is believed to be titled Dead Men Tell No Tales for a year. The fifth installment will hit theaters summer 2016. Basically, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer decided there was no reason to rush it. The first movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, came out in 2003 meaning that any kid who saw the first movie in the theater will be in college by the time the fifth one comes out. 

May 29, 2013 - Norwegian directing team Espen Sandberg and Joachim Ronning (Kon-Tiki) will helm Pirates of the Caribbean 5. The film is scheduled for release July 10, 2015.

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: The no-consequences car chase

31 July 2013 2:37 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

I’m going to start off by saying that I love action flicks; my girlfriends and I giddily chat about the newest 2 Fast and 2 Furious Drift x 5 (that’s the official title, right?) trailer, I scrambled to sign up for the Action in Cinema class in college before it got filled up with those boys who think that Die Hard is a classic right up there with Citizen Kane (Ok, I kind of agree with them), and I often do work while casually watching 300 in the background. Done right, the action film offers up the perfect amount of drama, one-liners, »

Sequel Subtitles: Can We Just Bring Back Numbers, Please?

29 July 2013 11:00 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

When Marvel unveiled its surprise announcement at the end of its lengthy panel at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, it felt like something of an anticlimax, and not just because Tom Hiddleston had just been on stage moments earlier in fully Loki regalia (wouldn't have been more exciting if he had come out dressed as his character from "War Horse?") Joss Whedon, the balding, brilliant whiz behind the $1 billion-grossing "Avengers," trotted out on stage in what appeared to be hand-me-down sneakers, to announce the title of the "Avengers" sequel, due in theaters in 2015. The movie would be called "The Avengers: Age of Ultron."

Uh what?

For those who were not born with a lifetime subscription to Starlog Magazine, the puzzlement sent in almost immediately. Who (or what) is Ultron? Why is this a whole "Age?" How long is this movie supposed to be? For those of us who own a »

Weekend Box Office Report: March 22-24, 2013

Croods rule! There hasn't been much in theaters this year for the kiddies, so crowds flocked to the first big family offering, putting the new computer-animated release The Croods at the top with $44.7 million. Audiences also gave an 'A' CinemaScore to the caveman clan fronted by Nicolas Cage (aside from Ghost Rider and National Treasure: Book Of Secrets, it's the biggest opening of anything the actor has been associated with).

Nicolas Cage Gets a Nic

20 February 2013 2:12 PM, PST | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"Nicolas Cage Awards are given out for distinguished performances in Nicolas Cage movies."

That's a loaded statement that leaves a whole lot of room for context, but the Nicolas Cage Awards, as imagined by College Humor, definitely delivers on that front, honoring a cinematic genre that specializes bursting with "range, diversity, and fearless originality." From "Ghost Rider" to "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" to "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance," Nic Cage has certainly claimed his place in Hollywood as an acclaimed actor-cum-crappy-blockbuster bait.

The Nicolas Cage Awards rewards Nic Cage-y things like wifebeaters and regional accents, characters who give up retirement for all-out capers, and a plethora of Nicolas Cage tropes. And it's pretty dead on, especially if you can count all the "Demon Guy" villains on one hand.

Also, remember "The Wicker Man"? Us either. »
