Ok, busy news day today folks, so we thought we’d throw together a news roundup something like we used to do. Sitting comfortably? Good, then here we go…
The Wrap has confirmed that Ryan Reynolds if off the Highlander reboot/rehash/reimagining/rewhatever, leaving Summit Entertainment with an idea but no actor, director or hope at getting it done. Part of us is quite happy. Our bad?
Prometheus 2, despite a few weeks ago it looking like there was no direction or writer for the sequel, has now got a writer. Now, according to aintitcool, 20th Century Fox are looking to Jack Paglen to write it. Apparently Ridley Scott likes Paglen’s idea for the sequel and has given it the go ahead.
Paglen is still a relative unknown with only Wally Pfister’s upcoming and little known about Transcendence under his belt. But we must assume he’s a new voice to be reckoned with
Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
Bad news for you Sin City fans tonight as it has just been announced that the sequel has been delayed by ten months. Apparently the problem is with the special effects and not the script, acting etc. Phew.
This Tweet was the news breaker:
Ken Levine, co-founder of Irrational Games and creater of the Bioshock franchise, is Warner Bros choice to script the remake of Logan’s Run.
Aintitcool are reporting: In a 2008 interview with Eurogamer, Levine cited the 1976 LOGAN’S RUN as an artistic inspiration for Bioshock.
Given the quality of the Bioshock games and the story telling, we can only assume this is good news all round…
