Movies from the 2000s That Need a Sequel

Movies from the 2000s That Need a Sequel
With many of us longing for simpler times, it's sometimes easy to overlook things from the recent past. As of late, I have been mired in lists from decades ago about films that never got the sequels they deserved. Well, no longer! Nowadays, it seems like it's never too early to miss something, so why not long for movies from the 2000s? We are in 2018 after all! So some of the films on this list that deserve sequels are almost 20 years old.

You're going to think I always say this, but this is a list that is different than most. Why? Because some of the films mentioned here actually have sequels. However, for one reason or another the sequel was so poorly done, or the film in question just needs a third film to make it a complete trilogy. So lets just say that you're going to have to forgive

Steven Moffat is bringing The Time Traveler’s Wife to HBO

Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is set to adapt Audrey Niffenegger’s novel The Time Traveler’s Wife, with Deadline reporting that the project has received a straight-to-series order from HBO.

HBO to tackle The Time Traveller’s Wife for TV series

  • HeyUGuys
HBO are embarking on a TV adaptation of Audrey Niffenegger’s novel The Time Traveler’s Wife.

Former Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat has been set to pen the script and also serve as executive producer. Sue Vertue and Brian Minchin will also serve as executive producers.

The debut novel of Niffenegger is a love story about a man with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably, and about his wife, an artist, who has to cope with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences. Niffenegger, frustrated in love when she began the work, wrote the story as a metaphor for her failed relationships.

‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ Is Being Turned Into A TV Series By Steven Moffat

Steven Moffat, the genius behind the likes of the recent Doctor Who seasons and the BBC’s Sherlock, will bring a TV version of The Time Traveler’s Wife to screens, so reports HBO, who are backing it.

The original book, which was then turned into a film with Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams, followed a librarian named Henry De Tamble (Eric Bana) who suffers from a rare genetic disorder that causes him to drift uncontrollably back and forth through time. On one of his sojourns, he meets the love of his life, Claire (Rachel McAdams), and they marry. But the problems and complexities of any relationship are multiplied by Henry’s inability to remain in one time and place, so that he and his beloved are continually out of sync.

Moffat released a statement after the news of the TV version was aired:

Sherlock Showrunner Bringing The Time Traveler’s Wife TV Series To HBO

Steven Moffat was once one of the busiest men on television, as he helmed two of the biggest British dramas in Doctor Who and Sherlock for many years. With the latter now on indefinite hiatus though and having handed the keys to the Tardis over to new showrunner Chris Chibnall, Moffat’s free at the moment to work on some fresh projects and his latest has just been announced: an adaptation of The Time Traveler’s Wife for HBO.

The sci-fi romance is a 2003 novel by author Audrey Niffenegger and was previously brought to the screen in the 2009 movie of the same name starring Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams. Unlike the acclaimed book, however, the film was met with mixed reviews – though it does have its fans – so it makes sense that HBO’s keen to mine the novel for its full potential.

Selma Blair Quits Twitter in Solidarity With James Gunn: ‘So Long’

Selma Blair Quits Twitter in Solidarity With James Gunn: ‘So Long’
After using the social-media platform to defend James Gunn, Selma Blair has quit Twitter altogether in solidarity with the fired “Guardians of the Galaxy” director. Disney severed all ties with the filmmaker after offensive tweets from years past were dug up by alt-right activists, which hasn’t sat well with many of Gunn’s colleagues and friends. In a tweet that, along with her account, no longer exists, Blair wrote simply, “So long. You can find me on Instagram. #Istandwithjamesgunn.”

Blair previously said of the situation, “If people are punished despite changing, then what does that teach people about owning mistakes and evolving? This man is one of the good ones.” Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer in the “Guardians” films, has similarly defended Gunn.

“I thank you for your talent, your decency and your evolution as a man,” Blair also wrote. “You propped me up when I was in a scary place,

Lantern Entertainment To Create $8.75 M Fund For The Weinstein Co.’s Unsecured Creditors

  • Deadline
Lantern Entertainment has agreed to create a fund for The Weinstein Co.’s unsecured creditors, a group that includes co-founder Harvey Weinstein’s accusers as well as the actors, directors and others in Hollywood who say they’re still owed money for their participation in the bankrupt studio’s films and television shows.

The Dallas-based private equity firm pledged to contribute $8.75 million to an escrow fund to pay participation and other claims, according to documents filed late today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware. That sum is in addition to the $289 million purchase price for The Weinstein Co.’s assets.

It is unclear how far this amount will go toward making Weinstein’s alleged victims, and Hollywood actors, directors and producers, whole. The debtors will determine how these funds will be allocated, sources say.

Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Quentin Tarantino, Others Raise Objections to Weinstein Co. Sale Provisions
A slew of A-list stars are raising objections to the Weinstein Co. bankruptcy sale, out of fear that they will see only a tiny fraction of their backend profit payments from Weinstein films.

The company hopes to win court approval for the sale to Lantern Capital on Wednesday and close the deal on Friday, just two days before its bankruptcy financing expires. Quentin Tarantino, Brad Pitt, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray, and many others filed objections to the sale on Monday.

Each claims that he or she is owed profit participation payments from various films. The stars’ attorneys are raising concerns about a deal reached last Friday between the Weinstein Co., Lantern, and the committee of unsecured creditors. A provision of the agreement gives Lantern another four months after closing to determine which Weinstein Co. contracts to assume. The remaining contracts will be relegated to the Weinstein Co.

Some of Hollywood’s most prominent actors, directors, producers and writers are objecting to the sale of The Weinstein Company to Lantern Capital, raising fresh questions about the Dallas private equity firm’s willingness to make good on the bankrupt company’s contractual obligations.
