Escape From Prequels

Escape From New York
[adrotate banner=”1″]If you liked Escape From New York and Escape From LA, but thought that we needed a prequel remake trilogy, then you are certifiable. And also in luck, because that’s what we’re getting! Studio Canal is working with Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures to bring the new trilogy to life. So far, all they’ve done is a few brainstorming sessions (if that) and dropped the press release to Deadline, but eventually they’ll have a writer and director and a new Snake Plissken cast that will upset 95% of the internet.

There was a prior Escape From New York remake in the pipeline, but I heard it was dead. Maybe America will escape again…

Movie News Droppings

[adrotate banner=”1″]The Spiderman reboot, which looks like they are going to go all Twilight with (sigh…), will also be in in 3-D. So expect sparkly Spiderman shooting webbing directly at the camera while obsessed pale Mary Jane spends large portions of the film sitting in a chair, depressed. Then Werewolf Goblin takes off his shirt.

The remake of Escape From New York is moving forward, as now we got dirty bombs, a non-trashed New York that is still a prison, and Snake rescuing a female senator instead of the President, probably so he can bang her. It will still be terrible.

The Superman reboot will be “Godfathered” by Chris Nolan, of Dark Knight fame. Basically, they will give him a bunch of cash to tell them if their ideas are dumb so they can try to make a billion dollars again, But they probably won’t listen and they’ll make another bomb. Meanwhile, the important news is that Nolan has an idea for the third Batman film, and he and his brother are writing the script.

In non-reboot news, Roland Emmerich is still making Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy, and now it will be 3D Motion Capture, because he can demand more money from YOU! I am officially over 3D, and even the promise of a 3D Mule won’t get me back into it. This news is so bad I wish I had more reboot news…

Foywonder has discovered that Asylum is making Titanic 2. Yes.

Black Dynamite was awesome, and can now be yours!
