Highlander Reboot Will Be Fast & Furious

22 September 2009 1:04 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Way back last year we brought you news that Iron Man scripters Art Marcum and Matt Holloway were penning the script for Summit Entertainment’s Highlander reboot. Now we finally have news about who is directing and producing the 21st Century Highlander update. Here’s a clue - they’re Fast and they’re Furious.

Yes - Fast and Furious director Justin Lin and blossoming super-producer Neal H. Moritz will call the shots on the Highlander remake.

The original Highlander told the tale of a 16th Century Scotsman - a highlander - who is immortal. He and other “immortals” fight through the ages in order to win “The Prize.” The only way that they can be killed is to be decapitated. Highlander starred Christopher Lambert and screen legend Sean Connery.

 

Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman of Summit Entertainment had this to say :

Jackman, Seed Looking to More 'Wolverine'

5 May 2009 3:30 PM, PDT | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

According to Variety, Hugh Jackman and Seed Productions partner John Palermo are developing several projects for the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star, perhaps not surprising, given that Jackman's film clawed in close to $90M at the box office during its opening weekend.

First up, 20th Century Fox and Seed are in development on a sequel to Wolverine. The Seed partners have begun planning the sequel, in which they are squarely focusing on the samurai storyline originated in the comic series.

The trade reports that Fox has also just closed a deal to acquire Personal Security, a spec script by Matt Lieberman. Jackman will star as a tough New York police detective forced into bodyguard duty for a spoiled teen heiress who is receiving kidnapping threats.

While Jackman has not set his next star vehicle, he is revving up over Drive, a Seed-produced adaptation of the James Sallis novel set up at Universal. »

Hugh Jackman Working on Wolverine 2, McQueen-Esque Actioner

5 May 2009 12:49 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Variety is confirming today that Hugh Jackman and his Seed Productions partner John Palermo are already developing a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which took the top of the box office in its opening weekend. Jackman has admitted in the past that he has already been talking to writers about storylines, concepts, etc -- including possible conversations with Slumdog Millionaire scribe Simon Beaufoy -- but this is the first official word we've seen about a sequel. As you might have noticed, there is a lot of energy from producer Lauren Shuler Donner around potential spin-offs for Deadpool and Gambit. Wolverine 2 -- which would focus on the samurai storyline that originate in the comic books series, one that sees Wolverine traveling to Japan -- is the next logical step if you ask me. The spin-offs could get some traction, but if this past weekend's box office says anything for the franchise, it »

Hugh Jackman’s Next Projects (Including Wolverine 2)

5 May 2009 12:09 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Last week Screen Rant reported on the fact that Hugh Jackman would like to see the Wolverine sequel involve the Japanese saga from the original comics. But at that point it was just the wishful, albeit informed, thinking of the Wolverine actor and not actual confirmation that that’s the direction a sequel would go.

Seed Productions, which is a company started by Jackman, Deborah-Lee Furnass and John Palermo (and is associated with 20th Century Fox), has started ramping up several projects for Jackman to star in. And, yes, one of which is the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Seed are planning to focus squarely on the Japanese storyline that Jackman wishfully spoke of last time he was interviewed about the sequel, which is set to continue on from the after-credits sequence [possible spoiler ahead] that saw Jackman in Japan, speaking the lingo. Seed will produce the film, as they did with Wolverine, »

Fox, Jackman Developing Wolverine Sequel and More

5 May 2009 9:25 AM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

20th Century Fox and Hugh Jackman’s Seed Productions are already in development on the sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. An “easter egg” scene following the credits this weekend showed Wolverine/Logan drinking in a Japanese bar, suggesting the possible new location for him to remove his shirt.

The confirmation from Variety reports no writers have been hired yet, but Jackman has been talking with potential candidates about using the Japanese samurai saga from Marvel’s Wolverine comics. Simon Beaufoy, the Oscar-winning writer of Slumdog Millionaire, was rumored briefly but has publicly denied his involvement.

The follow-up decision was inevitable after the summer movie made $158.2 million worldwide in its first weekend on a production budget of $150 million.  This is on top of the estimated millions the studio lost when the movie leaked on the Internet. Maybe Fox can make it to the sequel’s release without it being downloaded over a million times first. »

Wolverine Sequel Already in the Works, and More Plans for Hugh Jackman

5 May 2009 3:28 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Earlier today, Empire reported that plans for a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine are already underway. The story will take place in Japan, with Wolverine learning the ways of the Samurai and falling in love with the daughter of a Yakuza family.

Empire also reported that Hugh Jackman has a slew of projects forthcoming. These include Drive, in which he'll play a race-car driver/getaway man; Personal Security, in which he'll play a thick-skinned detective serving as a bodyguard to a spoiled teenage girl; and Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical Carousel, in which he'll play the male lead, Billy Bigelow.

Wolverine Sequel Goes Into Development

5 May 2009 1:42 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

In perhaps the least surprising news ever to follow an $85 million opening weekend, work has begun on a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and star Hugh Jackman is also considering a whole raft of other films, including thriller Drive, Personal Security, and a new adaptation of musical Carousel. He'll also be returning to Broadway in Houdini.Let's take those one-by-one, shall we? The Wolverine sequel is - chorus it with us now - to be set in Japan, and will focus on the samurai / Yakuza storyline of the comics, wherein Wolverine trains in the way of the samurai in order to control his feral nature, and falls in love with Mariko Yashida, heir to a Yakuza family.But that's not all. Jackman's also considering a role in Drive, about a racing driver who moonlights as a getaway man, and Personal Security, about a tough New York detective forced into bodyguard »

Hugh Jackman Already Developing 'Wolverine' Sequel

5 May 2009 12:53 AM, PDT | GetTheBigPicture.net | See recent Get The Big Picture news »

Well, isn't Hugh Jackman the new busiest man in Hollywood? The star of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and his Seed Productions - a regrettable company name when you think about it for four-and-a-half seconds - have been lining up multiple projects in the past couple of days.

First there was the graphic novel adaptation Ghostopolis, and now Variety reports that Jackman might pick up the rights to Personal Security, which sounds a lot like The Bodyguard, and, oh yeah, they're making another Wolverine movie.

Those moves come in addition to a couple other films, Drive and a re-staging of Carousel which might co-star Jackman and Anne Hathaway. But the big news, expected as it might seem, is the Wolverine sequel. »

Jackman's Seed Set to Spawn 'Wolverine' Sequel and More

5 May 2009 12:36 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Just yesterday I reported on a story regarding Hugh Jackman's production company, Seed Productions, getting ready to produce Ghostopolis in conjunction with Disney, a family friendly feature for Jackman to star in. Today it appears that's not the only thing Jackman and Co. has their eye on. First off, Fox and Seed are working on a sequel to the box-office topping X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As for storylines, they are squarely focusing on the samurai storyline originated in the comic series, and whose Japanese locale was teased as one of the film's final credit Easter eggs. A writer has yet to be hired. Next is Personal Security, a film Jackman will star in as a tough Gotham police detective forced into bodyguard duty for a spoiled teen heiress who is receiving kidnapping threats. Matt Lieberman (Dr. Dolittle: Tail to the Chief) wrote the script. A film Variety seems to believe »

What does Hugh Jackman Do Next (other than 'whatever he wants')? -- Plans for Wolverine 2, Rogers & Hammerstein's Carousel, Personal Security, and Drive

4 May 2009 | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Written by Matt Goldberg If the quality of a film rather than its box office receipts determined the future of its players, Hugh Jackman would spend the rest of his life struggling to do dinner theatre as penance for the sin of "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (have I mentioned that I did not care for the movie?). But an $87 million opening weekend is more powerful than even adamantium bullets so Hugh Jackman, who also worked as "Wolverine's" producer, now has a slew of projects at his disposal both as a producer and potentially as a star. Yesterday, we wrote about his adaptation of the graphic novel "Ghostopolis" and now Variety is talking up even more projects. First up is the inevitable sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" which would see the character's Japan arc. I really hope they bring in Lady Deathstryke and continue »

Boos! and Whoop-doos!: Pirates, Pigs, and Twitter? Oh, My!

27 April 2009 7:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Pirates, pigs, and Twitter? Boo!

Barreling down the I-5 with my check engine light on and the radio tuned to 640 am, I realized we are indeed in the midst of a crisis. It's like I've stepped into a George A. Romero movie, and I can't get out. Reports of a pig virus are sweeping the nation, and each incoming news alert hits like the background noise in a Dawn Of The Dead flick. We are in the first stages of something awful. A pandemic. One that could eat the entire human race and all of this weekend's box office receipts. If X-Men Origins: Wolverine underperforms, it's not because every fanboy on the planet has already downloaded the marginally entertaining fourth film in this longstanding franchise onto their computer. Its because we're afraid to leave the house. That's what Variety is claiming in a new article about the sudden and unexpected emergence of The Swine Flu, »

First image from Neil Marshall's Centurion is a real beauty

16 March 2009 9:17 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Neil Marshall is my boy. The guy's not only into all the same movies as me but he's never let me down with his own output and Centurion couldn't sound any cooler. You just know it's going to be a brutal, hard edged, in-your-face adult Roman combat film.

I was under the impression that Centurion was getting made after Marshall's urban thriller Drive but with the release of this first image of actress Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) as "Etain" in furs on some snowy mountain it would appear that we'll be seeing historic mayhem sooner than expected. According to Empire who broke the pic, the film should be premiering sometime this year. Snap! Here's what Marshall had to say about the character who's out for revenge.

“Etain is kind of revenge incarnate. Her family were butchered by the Romans, she had her tongue cut out by the Romans, she »

Hugh Jackman Says No to Singing, Yes to Voice Work

2 January 2009 8:30 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

2008’s “Sexiest Man Alive” is also one of the busiest men in Hollywood.  After starring in three movies in 2008 (including Baz Luhrmann’s almost 3 hour epic Australia), Hugh Jackman is wasting no time in lining up his 2010 schedule.

Jackman recently announced he has removed himself from discussions to star in Steven Soderbergh’s 3-D rock musical Cleopatra/Cleo.  Maybe it has something to do with it being a strange blend of 3-D, rock music, and Egyptian/Roman love story.  Or maybe it’s the weird mixture of Catherine Zeta-Jones Douglas.

The production is looking for a new Marc Antony.  Meanwhile, according to Variety, Ray Winstone is in talks to play Julius Caeser.

Jackman’s exit from the project is attributing to scheduling conflicts, which is usually PR speak for “he wasn’t interested.”  Though he did recently join the voice cast of Guardians of Ga’Hoole, an animated film from »
