The Future Of Hollywood: Remakes, Reboots, Sequels, & Biopics
Hollywood either hates us, or they really know what dipshits like, because by looking at the schedule of films coming for the next four years, most every huge studio tent-pole project is a sequel, a reboot, or a remake altogether. On the plus side, they have plenty of cool biopics in the works with some big names that are like nerd catnip for us.
Big-screen version? Yes, please.
We did an advanced search on IMDB and scoured film blogs to see what was up the sleeves of sleazy producers and Tom Cruise. It appears that some sort of copyright is about to run out on the Wizard Of Oz, because we noted about five or six projects dealing with the characters created by L. Frank Baum.
Remember most of these, thankfully, will not see the light of day as they are still mostly in development stages without casts or directors yet. We'd like to think most of them are only listed on IMDB to scare creatives into making original movies for us to watch.
The Dark Knight Rises
This is all any of you care about, as far as 2012. How Anne Hathaway will look in her Catwoman suit is all I think about when I go to bed at night, second only to Tom Hardy as Bane. What? It's 2011, grow up.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit 2
It's being fashioned with the same CGI work that gave us Robert Zemeckis' works like A Christmas Carol and Beowulf. Kinda excited about seeing Jessica Rabbit again. I sure would hate it if Christina Hendricks got to play her, I tell you what.
Men In Black III
Bad Santa 2
The Expendables 2
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2
Sin City 2
Star Trek 2
Midnight Run 2
American Pie 4
Given the timeline of probable events since the 1999 original, someone is going to be dealing with a GILF or three and pregnant sex, mark my words.
Indiana Jones 5
Bad Boys 3
Die Hard 5
This is going to have Daniel Day-Lewis starring as Honest Abe and it will be directed by Steven Spielberg, insuring at least a million Oscar nominations. Somewhere, method actor Day-Lewis is no doubt living in a log cabin in the Illinois wilderness.
Directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Rachel Weisz, this Jackie O biopic will cover the former First Lady's life after JFK.
Christian Bale is working on this one before he suits back up as Batman.
J. Edgar Hoover
This is the movie that forced Emma Stone to dye her hair blonde for filming. It better be worth it. The Social Network's Andrew Garfield is playing the young Spidey in this reboot of the franchise.
A big-screen version of the hit Fox series is one of the most coveted films in 2012, or any year. Expect everyone to come back, except narrator Ron Howard, according to recent interview.
