Care for some sequels?
Facts: 1 - Harrison Ford is not getting any younger; 2 - you can't argue with success. Last installment of Indiana Jones grossed over 700 million over the world and I don't think it includes all DVD, Bluray and merchandising sales. I personally liked the movie a lot, it was solid entertainment done with extreme virtuosity. So when I hear official reports about another sequel, I can only put my thumbs up. When will we get to see the film and who will participate is unknown right now, since the screenplay is not yet written. But you can be sure that Ford and Labeouf are in.
The plans for sequel to Hitman are moving forward. Reports are saying that the writer was hired already, and that it will be produced by the same people that were responsible for the first movie, which frankly was piece of garbage on all levels. Timothy Olyphant may return to reprise the role of Agent 47, but I doubt we will see Kurylenko or director Xavier Gens return there too. And it's definitely for the best.
Tom Cruise is a very busy guy with 10 (!) projects in works. One of them will be Mission Impossible 4, a franchise that he will continue to milk until no more juice left. The plans are to release the new film in 2011 with JJ Abrams, that directed previous segment, as producer. No words who will direct it, but it will be some major name. My bet is on Pierre Morel, the guy that directed Taken, only because he fits the pattern of Cruise's previous choices. But, of course, he will have to convert his religion to Scientology first.
Speaking of Pierre Morel, his next film From Paris with Love, action flick starring another member of Super Adventure Club John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, has a poster. The movie is in post-production and will be released next year. Unofficial trailer is circling the web for a long time now, and it looks quite intense. You can watch it here.
And finally, concept art and actual actors in costumes and makeup from the upcoming Tim Burton's extravaganza Alice in Wonderland.
