Robopocalypse - Kathleen Kennedy Gives Update on Steven Spielberg's Projects

20 December 2011 7:01 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Steven Spielberg has two movies opening this holiday season, The Adventures of TinTin and War Horse. Spielberg producer Kathleen Kennedy recently spoke to The Playlist (via The Film Stage) and discussed some of their rumored upcoming projects. Kennedy mentioned that they “don’t have a writer yet” for Jurassic Park 4 and stated they are “not writing ‘Indiana Jones’ right now”, when asked about Indiana Jones 5.

The historical epic Lincoln starring Daniel Day Lewis is currently filming, and next on the schedule is Daniel Wilson‘s Robopocalypse. Cloverfield writer Drew Goddard is putting the finishing touches on the first draft of the script, and is turning it in this month. Here is what Kennedy had to say about that project: “Steven was very taken with the story. I think there are elements that are similar to ‘A.I.,’ ‘Minority Report,’ things he’s done in the past, and he just views »

Producer Kathleen Kennedy Talks Steven Spielberg’s ‘Robopocalypse’; To Have ‘Minority Report’ & ‘A.I.’ Elements

19 December 2011 1:30 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Quick! How many superstar directors could get away with opening one blockbuster less than a week after another? Right now that list has one name: Steven Spielberg. As the holiday box office awaits War Horse and The Adventures of Tintin, we’ve seen set pics of Daniel Day-Lewis as our 16th president in Lincoln, and now longtime Spielberg producer Kathleen Kennedy talks about the next project on the director’s eternally-crowded slate: Robopocalypse. [The Playlist]

Kennedy answered a number of question regarding projects that have been rumored (Jurassic Park 4 – “we don’t have a writer yet”), speculated about (Indiana Jones 5 – same story: “We’re not writing ‘Indiana Jones’ right now”), and some of them may very well be wishful thinking (a NeverEnding Story reboot, a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? sequel).

The project she divulged the most details about was the next planned shoot for Spielberg once Lincoln is wrapped (the man »

Producer Kathleen Kennedy Says ‘Robopocalypse’ Will Have ‘Minority Report’ & ‘A.I.’-Like Elements & Says The ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ Sequel Is Stalled For Now

16 December 2011 3:24 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Producer Also Says Remake of ‘The NeverEnding Story’ & The Milli Vanilli Biopic Are In Limbo Besides "Lincoln" and "The Adventures of Tintin" sequels, what else are director Steven Spielberg and producer Kathleen Kennedy cooking for their follow-ups? And what else is Kennedy working on outside of her projects with Spielberg? We quizzed Kennedy for a rapid fire round-up of everything that's on the table and what's being pushed aside at the moment. Despite all the talk recently of "Indiana Jones 5" and "Jurassic Park 4," Kennedy cautioned that the big blockbuster films are far down the road. "We're not writing 'Indiana Jones' right now, and we don't have a writer on 'Jurassic' yet," she said. "We're talking about those, but we don't have writers on those. These projects, we've been talking about them for years and years and years, and something that stands »

Movie News After Dark: Great Gatsby, George Lucas, A Cloudy Sequel and 2011: The Cinescape

13 December 2011 7:30 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly thing about movies. No big deal. We begin tonight with a new image from The Great Gatsby featuring Leo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgerton looking quite dapper. One can only imagine how much more dapper this will all look when we see it for the first time in 3D. I like the word dapper. Last year, The Golden Globes learned that finding a comedian with a bit of edge can be dangerous and good for your ratings. This year, the Independent Spirit Awards is following suit… Or, wait, cancel that. The Indie Spirits are going to be filled with stoner humor. Seth Rogen is hosting. He will undoubtedly laugh a lot, though. In the world of theater there’s a new thing called ‘Tweet Seats’ where you can come and Tweet through a performance. It sounds like an awful idea, as »

Now George Lucas Has Weighed In On ‘Indiana Jones 5′ Talk

13 December 2011 11:00 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

When we last left the saga of the slowly developing [1] potential film, Indiana Jones 5, Steven Spielberg clarified that "It's up to George." He and George Lucas, of course, had agreed on the concept for the film but until Lucas had more story details worked out, the film can't progress. The man with the plan was on the red carpet for his friend's The Adventures of Tintin premiere (which, itself, is structured and feels like an Indiana Jones movie) and offered his two cents. No big surprises here, he's basically just echoing Spielberg but you can read the quote and watch a video of Spielberg talking a bit about the film after the jump. Just to recap, Steven Spielberg did an interview with [2] Entertainment Weekly and after some discussion [3], he basically said this in regards to Indiana Jones 5: It’s up to George. We have already agreed on the [MacGuffin] of the fifth movie, »

'Indiana Jones 5': George Lucas seeks MacGuffin plot device

13 December 2011 1:47 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

George Lucas is yet to settle on a MacGuffin for Indiana Jones 5. The writer/producer said that he is still considering the plot device for the sequel. Lucas told Vulture that partner Steven Spielberg's claim that the concept was settled was not quite accurate. "Actually, I told him I didn't have it yet," Lucas said. "I told him about the story, but I really haven't found the MacGuffin yet. "I mean, I know what it's about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we're working in." (more) »

Indiana Jones 5 Has George Lucas Stumped

13 December 2011 12:54 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Indiana Jones 5 story MacGuffin has George Lucas stumpedIn a recent Entertainment Weekly interview, Steven Spielberg revealed that George Lucas has figured out the genre of Indiana Jones 5, and that they have a concept in mind, but he doesn't know where the story is at.

"It's up to George. We have already agreed on the genre of the fifth movie, we already have a concept in mind. I don't know where George is with the story. There is no Indiana Jones 5 until George says there is."

George Lucas has now come forward to admit that the story has him stumped. While he has figured out a genre and a concept for Indiana Jones 5, he has not yet been able to find the perfect MacGuffin, the device (such as the Ark of the Covenent or the Crystal Skull) upon which to hinge the plot upon. And it may »

George Lucas on Indiana Jones 5

13 December 2011 12:21 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Just recently Steven Spielberg revealed that he and George Lucas have been working on "Indiana Jones 5," and have been able to come up with a general idea for the new film. NY Mag has now caught up with Lucas to get an update. "I told [Spielberg] about the story, but I really haven't found the MacGuffin yet," he said. "I mean, I know what it's about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we're working in." For those not familiar with the term, a MacGuffin is a narrative element that drives the story forward. The "Indiana Jones" franchise already had the Ark of the Covenant, the Sankara Stone, the Holy Grail and the Crystal Skull. Until Lucas figures out the object that Indy will be searching, the fifth movie will not happen. »

George Lucas on 'Indiana Jones 5': 'I Really Haven't Found the MacGuffin Yet'

12 December 2011 10:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

Because you couldn't get away from this slow-news Monday without a bit of updating ("updating") from George Lucas on 'Indiana Jones 5,' here you go: the super-producer doesn't have a cemented idea for the fifth film, despite protestations by Steven Spielberg to the contrary. "Actually, I told him I didn't have it yet," Lucas told Vulture when asked about Spielberg's recent quotes that a concept for film five was decided upon. "I told him about the story, but I really haven't found the MacGuffin yet. I mean, I know what it's about, but I just have to find a MacGuffin that fits into the arena we're working in." Translation: status quo!

10 December 2011 2:27 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

While the Australian film history has been characterized by classics like Muriel’s Wedding, Priscilla and Mad Max, recent Aussie films depend less on rough exteriors and more on contained emotional drama.

Steven Spielberg Clarifies ‘Indiana Jones 5′ ‘Genre’ Comment

5 December 2011 4:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Steven Spielberg was recently quoted in [1] Entertainment Weekly as saying the following in regards to Indiana Jones 5: It’s up to George. We have already agreed on the genre of the fifth movie, we already have a concept in mind. I don’t know where George is with the story. There is no Indy 5 until George says there is. At the time, that statement raised a lot of questions. Was Indiana Jones 5 really going to be a new genre? Had Spielberg misspoke? As predicted, the answers to those questions are "No" and "Yes." Read his clarification after the break. At the New York premiere of War Horse, The Playlist [2] asked Spielberg about this quote, to which he replied: No, no, no. It's not a new genre at all.

Steven Spielberg on Indiana Jones 4 and 5

4 December 2011 10:40 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Steven Spielberg has been chatting more about Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull, and has a brief update on Indiana Jones 5, too...

Back in October, Steven Spielberg revealed to the world that he too wasn’t particularly impressed with the ending of Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull. Citing that it was George Lucas’ story, Spielberg said that “I never liked the MacGuffin”, before adding that “I will always defer to George as the storyteller of the Indy series. I will never fight him on that”.

We'd be happy to, if it helps.

In a more recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, he’s returned to the subject of Indiana Jones. On Crystal Skull he said that “I’m really proud of the movie. I loved bringing Marion back. I love the fact that Indy now has a son. It’s a family action film, »

Spielberg Talks Jurassic Park IV, Indiana Jones 5 and Nuking the Fridge

1 November 2011 8:00 AM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

If you’ve seen the latest trailer The Adventures of Tintin, you may have noticed a certain touch of Steven Spielberg‘s legendary sense of adventure and whimsy. That Spielbergian charm seemed to be somewhat absent from the later installments of the Jurassic Park films, in addition to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

In a recent interview with Empire, Spielberg addressed the forthcoming installments of both of those popular franchises.

“You have to ask George Lucas. George is in charge of breaking the stories. He’s done it on all four movies. Whether I like the stories or not, George has broken all the stories. He is working on Indiana Jones 5. We haven’t gone to screenplay yet, but he’s working on the story. I’ll leave it to George to come up with a good story.”

26 October 2011 1:20 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin doesn’t arrive stateside until Christmas, but it’s already out in Europe and enjoying rave reviews. Indeed, many are calling it a return to form for Spielberg after the disappointing (to say the least) Indiana Jones 4.

Recently, while promoting Tintin, Spielberg also discussed the upcoming Jurassic Park 4 and Indiana Jones 5 – as well as the widely-criticized Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

On the status of Jurassic Park the fourth – courtesy of Empire – Spielberg said:

“The screenplay is being written right now by Mark Protosevich. I’m hoping that will come out in the next couple of years. We have a good story. ...
