This is a long one, so I'll start it off with a little sadomasochism...

Everyone's FAVORITE video game to film director, Uwe Boll, gets three... yes THREE new directing jobs. Hunter: The Reckoning, Fear Effect, and Far Cry; Surprisingly, they're ALL based on video games. (Will the horror EVER end?)

Ralph Bakshi return to theaters (I hope) with a new film called The Last Days Of Coney Island. It's about an aging NYPD officer who patrols Coney Island. Great to see him still doing films.

One of my all time favorite horror films is getting remade, THE OMEN. Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles is starring so it might not be all THAT bad.

Another one of my all time favorite horror films is getting a sequel, Bloodsucking Freaks. It'll be straight to DVD/Video for this one, I'm afraid.

Another week, another SPIDER-MAN 3 villains rumor. NOW it's being said that Hayden-Church is playing Sandman, James Franco will take on the Hobgoblin costume, and (HOPEFULLY NOT!)Topher Grace is going to be Venom. I think I'm giving up on the Spidey 3 stuff until it's set in stone or on the screen.

Live Freaky! Die Freaky! (livefreakydiefreaky.com) looks like something the SOUTH PARK creators would love to do. While I'd probably pass on seeing this, look at who alls doing voices for this. Who'd ever thought that the singer from Rancid would be in a movie? Billie Joe from Green Day also does a voice!

STAR TREK: THE BEGINNING is the working title of the next big screen Trek film. The script is completed and is awaiting the green light. It takes place after ENTERPRISE but before the Kirk and Spock era, so it'll probably suck.

30 DAYS OF NIGHT gets a director... and it's NOT Uwe Boll! It's David Slade... who did a few music videos. (Ugh!)

Steve Carell gets even MORE love! He'll be starring in EVAN ALMIGHTY, a sequel to BRUCE ALMIGHTY. He'll be building an ark and waiting for the flood, like Noah.

SCREAM 4 is getting made without Wes Craven being involved. Neve Campbell is starring.

SIN CITY is getting two sequels. They begin filming in February.

...and to finish this off, here's a list of sequels or remakes that some of you might want to see and some of you probably don't really care all that much about.



28 Weeks Later (28 Days Later sequel) (2007)
The 39 Steps (2006)
The Aristocats 2 (2007)
Bambi 2 (2006)
Bean 2 (November 2006)

Evan Almighty sounds like a cool idea, and since Steve Carell's in it, I bet it rules.

Scream 4 will probably suck, especially without Craven, but I'll still probably give it a try. Even if it's terrible, I can just stare at Neve Campbell for an hour and a half. And, I want more Dewey (he didn't die in the third one, did he? I don't remember. And yet I consider myself a horror movie buff. Sad).

The list of sequels is a joke, right?

Right?

Evan Almighty should be all kinds of awesome, though.



"He is the most overrated piece of crap in the league. He bitched and whined after he got his ass beaten in New England last year, so the NFL changed the rules. Then he got his ass beaten in New England again. Every year he's the top MVP candidate. Every year he's supposed to be the best. Every year he's going to carry the Colts to the Super Bowl. And every single year he goes to New England and gets his ass beaten. And his brother's a whiny little bitch." -A friend of mine, on Peyton Manning

If they wanna do Scream 4 right, make Sidney the killer. They should have did that with Scream 3, it would have made sense.


And whoohoo Sin City sequels.

Old School 2 ... Hmmm ... all I can say is that I really hope that Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson & Will Ferrell are in it.

On the subject of Spidey 3, I read somewhere (I can't for the life of me remember where) that Topher Grace was having to add some bulk to his frame for his role in the movie. Of course, he probably only weighs 90 lbs soaking wet.

Is that 'Aristocats 2' or 'AristoCRATS 2'? Since there is rather a world of difference.



On the flip side, congrats to ABC for hiring Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to "I like it, I love it" for every halftime highlight show throughout the "Monday Night Football" season. Just last week, my buddy House and I were discussing Cosell's classic highlight narratives in the '70s, and how nobody had approached them since, and I told House, "Only one thing could ever come close, and I know it's a long shot, but what if ABC hired Tim McGraw to tailor the lyrics to 'I Like it, I Love It' for each week of NFL highlights throughout the season?" And wouldn't you know, it happened! See, dreams can come true. --- Bill Simmons, www.sportsguy.net

Land of the Lost? Woo, I'm so there.

Undisputed 2? That movie with Wesley Snipes about prison boxing? That flick didn't make any money. Why would there be a sequel? Weird.

I'm a little torn on Hobgoblin instead of Green Goblin in Spiderman 3. Unless the Norman's making an appearance, why not let Harry pick up the monicker like in the comic? It'd freak Spidey out more seeing the original more than a knockoff. Sandman should be fun in CGI. Venom... well, there's such a thing as overkill. Look at how Bane, who should have been a major player in the Batman movies, just got tossed in there with Ivy and Freeze? That, and the symbiote is going to require a little too much explaining, I'd think.

Anyway, I'm probably the only one (besides the people making it, I guess) that thinks a new TMNT movie could really be fun. I loved the 1st and 3rd ones from the previous live actions. Gimme a ruthless Shredder and that should keep the Turtles themselves from going too off-the-wall goofy.

Can't wait to see what they do with Transformers as well.

Under Siege 3? I wasn't even aware there was an UNDER SIEGE 2.

Why are they making a second MR. BEAN movie? Who really wants that? The first movie was terrible.

Scary Movie 3 was really good; I hope the same people are working on number four.

I'm guessing Bambi 2, Cinderella 3 and Toy Story 3 will be direct to video efforts for Disney. Especially if the rumours are true and most of the voice talent in TS are abandoning the project if it's not produced by Pixar.

Who's slated to direct Spider Man 3? I think it's gonna suck; especially if they require more than one bad guy. Come on...three?

Under Siege 2: Dark Territory. It's one of those movies I'll watch every time it's on TV (and it's on a LOT). Eric Bogosian is the main bad guy, and Stephen Segal just happens to be on the train he hijacks. And then he uses a satellite to make earthquakes at a Chinese chemical weapons lab and shoot down stealth bombers. Oh, and he'll shoot his earthquake ray onto the Pentagon (or White House, maybe), that secretly has a nuclear reactor in the basement, so like the entire east coast will be wiped out.

Raimi again. I think the villian rumors are just wild speculation. And I thought Raimi has talked of his hatred for the Venom character in the past. I trust in all things Raimi, though, so I can't imagine he'll screw it up too much.

Evan Almighty sounds stupid. Remember what happened last time they did a sequel to a Jim Carrey movie without Jim Carrey?

Scream 4, ridiculousness.

I guess its cool that Sin City getting sequels. However I heard they are making a story specifically for Jessica Alba's Nancy. I think that's a bad idea considering that she was the worst part about the first movie.

Personally I found Rosario Dawson's Gail to be the weak link in Sin City. Hartigan and Nancy's interaction was interesting. Dwight and Gail's was not.

Are you referring to Dumber and Dumberer or Son of Mask? Actually, nevermind, either way you're right.

What? No new Land Before Time this year?

That is. . . a lot of sequels. Scream 4? Evan Almighty? I think I'll pass. Was there really that clamoring for the Santa Clause 3?

However, I will be watching Old School 2. That should be awesome even if it won't be out for another two years.

Did I hear that Tim Allen and Tom Hanks weren't doing the voices for Toy Story 3? (And call me crazy, but I liked the original Toy Story).

I agree. My wife and I went to see it in the movie theatre with no kids and have watched it numerous times with our kids. It is a great movie. No shame in liking it. But plenty of shame in not admiting you liked it.

I'm guessing that the first Mr. Bean movie did really big in the U.K. and possibly elsewhere outside of the U.S.

I tried watching a few times, but the only episode I enjoyed was the Christopher Reeves one. It will last five seasons, because besides Charm, a show can only go five seasons on the WB ie Buffy and Angel.
