From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Sir John Hurt, recently knighted for his services to drama, revealed today that he has been diagnosed with early stage pancreatic cancer. He is undergoing treatment, says he is optimistic about it, and intends to continue working.
Celebrated for his work in films like The Elephant Man, Midnight Express and Alien, the 75 year old actor recently appeared alongside Dways 'The Rock' Johnson in Hercules and is currently filming The History Of Love with Gemma Arterton and Derek Jacobi. He spoke with us last year about his lengthy career and the fun he had on the set of Snowpiercer.
Pancreatic cancer affects around 9,000 people in the UK every year. The most obvious early symptom is pain in the abdomen, but many people have no symptoms at all until the diseases has »

From Academy Award® nominated director Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena) and producers Working Title (The Theory Of Everything, Everest, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), comes the true story of the meteoric rise and fall of one of the most celebrated and controversial men in recent history, Lance Armstrong.
Based on the award winning book “Seven Deadly Sins” by David Walsh, and featuring a stellar cast including Ben Foster, Chris O’Dowd, Guillaume Canet (Tell No One) and Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), this tense and suspenseful thriller looks at how one of the greatest deceptions in the modern era was uncovered while Armstrong convinced the world he was a hero, winning the Tour de France seven times.

Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of many guises. Since his meteoric rise in recent years, he is an actor that no one would dare accuse of being typecast, and in every new role he proves that there is nothing he can't do.
The wild animal (Classified - Penguins of Madagascar)
In Penguins of Madagascar, Cumberbatch gets a chance to show off his beastly side. We're not talking about him looking like an otter (not this time), but his role as Classified in the animated sequel.
He voices the grey wolf leader of the animal spy agency North Wind, who take in the four intrepid penguins when they find themselves lost on the streets and waterways of Venice.
The mythical monster (Smaug - The Hobbit trilogy)
An ancient and powerful dragon demands an air of gravitas, »
Lance Armstrong went from an American hero to the most hated man in America when it was revealed that he had blood doped and cheated in order to win his record seven Tour de France titles, but had also lied to everyone while off the bike that he was clean. It culminated in a revealing interview between Lance and Oprah and a documentary film called The Armstrong Lie by Alex Gibney.
Now for the first time Lance’s story is being told in a dramatic fiction form, exposing his lie and all that led up to it. Will Stephen Frears’s movie help the cyclist earn some of his credibility back, or will it make him even more of the villain?

In the film, 90s-era detective Bruce Kenner (Ethan Hawke) investigates Angela’s (Watson) claim that her father committed something terrible – but she can’t remember exactly what. Thrown into a horrifying mystery, Kenner must wade his way through lies, threats, and suspicion before he becomes the next victim of a national conspiracy.
Though we’d really, really like Watson to regress (ahem) into her Bling Ring character’s La drawl – imagine Regression’s Angela confessing to Ethan Hawke, “I think this situation is a huge learning lesson for me.” – just the sheer fact that Emma Watson has a new movie out is enough to have us already in line at the box office.

Certainly, in the more than 400 years since its first publication, it has been one of the most frequently adapted; revived regularly on stage and re-envisioned time and again in the age of cinema and television.
In his review, Guy Lodge (Variety) praises the director’s “thrillingly elemental new adaptation. Fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it’s a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period.”

It is ITV’s latest production sector deal, following investments »
London — ITV Studios Global Entertainment, the international distribution arm of U.K. TV network ITV, has acquired a minority stake in Monumental Television, the indie recently founded by producers Alison Owen and Debra Hayward.

The best thing about Wayward Pines, the new, short-run effort coming to Fox, is watching how it attempts to learn from the mistakes of similar shows that have come before.
From the less-than-stellar “remake” of The Prisoner with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen, to the largely goofball Persons Unknown (which was, sort of, The Prisoner 2: The Group), and everything else in the “trapped in a town” genre, the story can’t work if the characters are empty plot devices.
Wayward Pines is a rare example of setting out with the tropes and traps of a genre in order to dodge the pitfalls inherent in telling a type of story that can never fully distance itself from the fact that it’s pretty goofy. The problem is that while the show clearly tries to look at what made other efforts fall apart, and do those things differently, it isn’t »
