WEDNESDAY, APRIL 29

SPIDER-MAN---multiple sources say Asa Butterfield (ENDER'S GAME) is the top candidate among five to play Peter Parker in the reboot movie.





SIX BILLION DOLLAR MAN---Damian Szifron (WILD TALES) will write the script for the Mark Wahlberg movie remake of the ABC sci fi series that starred Lee Majors.





STAR WARS---producer Simon Kinberg said there's a possibility that a character from the animated STAR WARS: REBELS tv series could also appear in one of the live-action movies, "Absolutely. There’s been conversation about it. That this story could be a story that crosses over into other films, whether it’s A NEW HOPE or other movies. And that movies could potentially even enter into our timeline and our moment."

JURASSIC WORLD---director Colin Trevorrow said his movie is a direct sequel to the original movie and more or less ignores the other sequels, THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK and JURASSIC PARK III, which are set on Isla Sorna. JURASSIC WORLD and the original movie are set on Isla Nublar. Producer Frank Marshall said, "It was Colin’s pitch that we needed to go back to what we did in the first movie and enter the [Jurassic Park] park in wonderment and joy and happiness… and then it can go wrong."

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD---final trailer released for the sequel starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Trailer link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woHTUsl66BY


THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT---Jeff Daniels is in negotiations to play David, head of the Bureau of Genetic Welfare in PART 1 and 2.

SUICIDE SQUAD---Alex Meraz (THE TWILIGHT SAGA) has joined the cast in an undisclosed role. Also, Ben Affleck was photographed on the set, apparently in his Bruce Wayne garb from BATMAN v SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE, which led to speculation he will have a cameo in SUICIDE SQUAD.





DON'T LOOK NOW---remake underway of the 1973 horror movie that starred Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie.





STARSHIP TROOPERS---producer Neal H. Moritz commented on the status of the remake of the 1997 Paul Verhoeven movie and said it may be a tv series instead, "We're developing it. We've actually been talking about either doing it as a feature or doing it as a television show. So, we'll see."





YOUTH---Michael Caine, Harvey Keitel, Rachel Weisz and Jane Fonda star in this movie about a retired composer and a filmmaker who reflect on their pasts in the Italian mountains.

MERCY STREET---PBS six-part Civil War miniseries about two nurses, one from the Confederate Army and the other from the Union Army, in a Union Army hospital in Alexandria, Virginia. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Radnor and Gary Cole star. Ridley Scott is co-producer.

ZOOLANDER 2---Ben Stiller confirmed Justin Bieber will have a cameo in the sequel.

21 JUMP STREET---a rumor claims Sony Pictures is developing an all-female spinoff movie.

Ah, great, yet another step down in the expectation ladder for this film. I'm actually starting to get ANNOYED by it now, despite my 14 years of immense expectations. That he's ignoring the two sequels -- like Neil Blomkamp does with the new ALIEN film -- is a HORRIBLE idea, and just proves to me what a big turkey this is going to be. I'm sure of it, and I've only seen the trailers! F/"#¤K THIS FILM!

This film doesn't look any better than the two sequels so the notion they are going to rewrite history and make things "good" with the franchise is absurd.

But how would TLW and JP3 really impact Jurassic World in any meaningful way? The only thing would be the revelation of living dinosaurs to the world, and that's clearly accomplished based on previews showing an active, thriving park. There's not a continuity issue there.

I don't think there will be any active "ignoring" of the sequels, just no direct mention to their events. I'd rather there be less callbacks and more in-the-moment dialogue/action anyway, so it doesn't seem so bad to me.

With Alien(s), it does sound like there will be some retconning, and I don't care about that series enough to bother really, but I can see why somebody who does care would be frustrated by that.

If JW takes place right after JP, it means it takes place somewhere around the time of the two sequels. I can't see how the films can exist in the same universe at the same time, since a thriving park at Isla Nublar would be referenced in either JP2 or 3 at some point.

If JW had taken place many years after JP -- and even after JP2 and JP3 (although Trevvorow's statements seem to suggest otherwise) -- it would be much better. Although still somewhat unbelievable, knowing what everyone went through in the previous movies.

I'm not sure if there's something I'm missing, but where is it indicated that JW takes place before the other sequels?

(I've only seen an official trailer or two, but from them, the movie could take place well after TLW and JP3)

Probably too violent for my tastes nowadays, but it does look spectacular and mostly "old school" which is a good thing.

True, it will be a "direct" follow-up to JP, but not an immediate follow-up. There is at least one actor carried over from the first movie, and based on their age (not to mention the technology - weird plastic ball vehicles instead of 90s-colored Jeeps, etc), it will be clear that ~22 years had passed. That's a big empty gap that can easily be filled with those two movies, even if none of the characters directly reference Jeff Goldblum's daughter gymnokicking a raptor in the schnozz, or William H Macy's ill-advised mustache.

Blomkamp was misquoted. He's since confirmed he's *not* ignoring any of the Alien series.

That's exactly what he should have done. If there was ever another "Jaws" sequel, the director of that should do the same thing -- ignore the third and fourth film and make it a direct sequel of the first film. Hell, same with "Men in Black".

But he is. There's no way around it, given the plot and the actors he's using. He corrected himself to appease fans of the franchise, but he's made it pretty clear that he picks up after ALIENS and leaves the other two films to what is basically a 'separate timeline'.

I'd like to see someone explain how the film fits into the existing timeline with an old Ripley and Hicks walking around. Without adhering to wormholes that bend time. Good luck!

Thank you, Thor. Hicks being alive means Alien 3 didn't take place in Blomkamp's version.

Ugh... there is no 'ignoring' JP 2 and 3. Jurassic World just takes place at the same island where the first JP film did.

Jurassic Park - Isla Nublar
Juarassic Park 2 - Isla Sorna
Jurassic Park 3 - Isla Sorna
Jurassic World - Isla Nublar

So while the events of JP 2 and 3 still happened, they just have no direct impact on Jurassic World. We good?

I really don't care. I'm not into these films all that much. But when the guy says we're a direct sequel it implies the existing sequels are garbage and we're going to do it right this time. Which is a bunch of hyperbole.

Any implication that the other sequels are "garbage" is your reading of the director's words, not his intent. I don't read that implication at all.

Jurassic World. Does this have anything to do with the dino 'can' transporter Nedry loses in the first movie? Like, all that dino DNA gets to jumble around while going through the Prometheus Niagara first act, followed by a reversal of any need for regular infusions of lysine, because as we know, there's plenty of it in the captive audience just waiting to go down a treat.

I'm looking forward to the return of the JURASSIC PARK t-rex in this film! I'm a big fan of the first two JURASSIC PARK films, but not the third, or turd.wink

Doubtful. That can only had enough coolant for 72 hours, so those embryos would be dead past that point.
