J.J. Abrams Talks About CLOVERFIELD 4 and Says it’s a “Crazy Movie”

J.J. Abrams seems to be enjoying his Cloverfield franchise and the mystery that surrounds it. The Cloverfield Paradox made a surprising debut on Netflix after the Super Bowl. The movie was met with a lot of mixed reviews. Some people downright hated it. A lot of people wondered what the fate of the fourth Cloverfield film would be after Paradox was released.

That film is tentatively titled Overlord and it’s already done shooting. As of right now, the plan is to release it on the big screen. Abrams recently spoke with Digital Spy about the project, but first explains that it was fun to release The Cloverfield Paradox without anyone knowing:

“It didn’t really feel like it was any fun to release [The Cloverfield Paradox] with everybody knowing that it was coming. Could we possibly do this and keep it a secret and release the thing in the way we did? That felt to me like that’s the spirit of these movies, that’s the spirit of the series. So to talk about what the next one is and what’s going to happen sort of feels counter intuitive.”

Here’s an interesting bit of Star Wars trivia that I didn’t know until today! Solo: A Star Wars Story co-writer Lawrence Kasdan recently revealed in an interview with EW, that he was actually developing a standalone Han Solo film with George Lucas before Disney bought Lucasfilm.

If George Lucas wouldn’t have sold Lucasfilm to Disney, there’s a good chance that he was on the road to launching his own Star Wars expanded cinematic universe, which is pretty cool. According to the report:

Even before Lucasfilm was sold to Disney in 2012, launching a renaissance of galactic storytelling, Lawrence Kasdan had signed on to put together a Han Solo-centric movie.

Using toys like building blocks, plastic buckets and shovels, and game board pieces, Andy has designed the perfect setting for this land that includes two major new attractions.

Slinky Dog Dash is a family-friendly coaster that will send riders dipping, dodging and dashing around turns and drops through the world of Andy’s toys. Guests can also spin around with little green aliens aboard Alien Swirling Saucers and quick refreshments will be on tap at Woody’s Lunch Box.

Weta Digital Begins Work on Avatar Sequels, Cameron Teases Further Innovation

Weta Digital Begins Work on Avatar Sequels, Cameron Teases Further Innovation

Fresh off of their latest triumphant work, War for the Planet of the Apes, Weta Digital has announced (via Variety) they’ve officially begun work on the upcoming four sequels to James Cameron’s Avatar.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms “I’ll Be Back” in the Next TERMINATOR Movie

Good news for Terminator fans, Arnold Schwarzenegger says he will once again play the cybernetic killing machine. In a recent interview with Screen Daily, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he will star in a new Terminator film produced by James Cameron.

“It is moving forward. He [Cameron] has some good ideas of how to continue with the franchise,” the actor added, “I will be in the movie.”

This is exciting news because Cameron has not been involved in any Terminator films since Terminator 2: Judgement Day and we all know everything after T2 was somewhat disappointing. It’s going to be interesting to see how this develops because Cameron is slightly busy working on the next four Avatar sequel films. It was previously revealed that Deadpool director Tim Miller would be working with Cameron on developing the new film.

What do you think about Cameron and Schwarzenegger teaming up once again? Is late better than never?

Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 is Dead, Says Ridley Scott

Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 is Dead, Says Ridley Scott

In late 2015, it was revealed that 20th Century Fox‘s plans for Neill Blomkamp‘s proposed Alien 5 were in a holding pattern pending the release of Ridley Scott’s prequel Alien: Covenant. Now that we’re weeks away from Covenant‘s May 19 bow in theaters, Scott has been asked by Allocine about Blomkamp’s fivequel and he suggests it’s no longer an active project at all.

“There was never a script,” Scott stated bluntly. “It was an idea that evolved from, I believe, a 10-page pitch, and I was meant to be part of the producers on that. It didn’t evolve. Fox decided that they didn’t want to do it and that was it. I’d already done ‘Prometheus’ and I was planning ‘Covenant’ so I dunno.”

When pressed to say if he thinks the sequel would ever happen, Scott said, “I don’t think so, no.”
