    Deadline ^ | January 18, 2018 | Mike Fleming Jr.
    Hot off directing back to back pictures in the Oscar contender The Post and the upcoming Ready Player One, Steven Spielberg is now figuring out his next two directorial vehicles. There are several percolating, but sources say he is eyeing Indiana Jones, and then would either precede or follow quickly with another pic. I’m hearing that one might be his dream project, a new version of West Side Story. Spielberg’s camp had no comment on his plans. Deadline revealed back in 2015 that Spielberg had his eye on his Jurassic World star Chris Pratt to be a central part of...

    Mel Gibson confirmed he's working on a sequel to his 2004 film "Passion of the Christ." "And you know, it's not the 'Passion 2.' It's called 'The Resurrection,'" Gibson told evangelist Greg Laurie at SoCal Harvest, according to Gibson explained that the sequel will focus on Jesus' resurrection. "Of course, that's a very big subject and it needs to be looked at because we don't want to just do a simple rendering of it — you know, read what happened," the actor added. "Passion of the Christ" screenwriter Randall Wallace told The Hollywood Reporter that "there's a lot more...

    A Monday piece in IO9 contained some revelations about the upcoming sequel to 1996’s “Independence Day,” which is entitled “Independence Day: Resurgence.” 20 years after the great alien invasion flattened many of Earth’s largest cities and killed untold millions of people, the world is still united in building up its defenses against a return engagement. These defenses apparently include a moon base.

    The second "Sharknado" film doesn't premiere until this summer, but that hasn't stopped Syfy from plotting a third installment of the cult, social media-driven franchise. What we know is that more sharks and tornadoes are expected to follow in the third movie, but a cast and location have yet to be announced. The first film found sharks and storms wreaking havoc on Los Angeles, and the second one, titled "Sharknado 2: The Second One," is set in New York City. It debuts July 30 -- a year after the first movie premiered. Actress Vivica A. Fox, Billy Ray Cyrus, Sugar...

    The History Channel tapped into an underserved market and came up with a blockbuster miniseries earlier this year in The Bible. The rumors of a sequel understandably peaked after the reception of the original; Hollywood likes nothing more than Roman numerals after a title, which is a bit more ironic than usual in this case. This time, though, the sequel moves to NBC, which outbid The History Channel for the follow-up: The Bible is making the jump from cable to network TV, as ComcastÂ’s (CMCSA) NBC said it has struck a deal for a sequel to HistoryÂ’s surprise spring hit....

    "Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Spock"? The first photos from the set of the sequel to 2009's "Star Trek" have leaked, and from what we can see it looks like it will be just as action-packed as its predecessor. What's more, the shots give us the first look at the villain from the film currently in production. The photos show Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana returning to the roles of Spock and Uhura, along with new cast member Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays their still-unnamed adversary. The actors were photographed while they rehearsed and shot a fight scene on a...

    Those of us of a certain age will remember the cheeky-faced young man who burst onto our screens and encouraged us all to ditch school for the day. Now, almost three decades on, that irresistible truant Ferris Bueller, the sausage king of Chicago, is back - and this time he's taking a day off work. Matthew Broderick is set to reprise his most famous role after a ten-second clip was posted on YouTube, showing the actor, now 49, acting a famous line from the 1986 film - with a 2012 twist.

    NEW YORK ( -- They're not calling it Stimulus 2, but the Obama administration wants to extend the life of several Recovery Act provisions by building them into the federal budget. The president's $3.8 trillion budget for fiscal 2011, unveiled Monday, calls for giving states more money for Medicaid and infrastructure projects, as well as renewing tax breaks for workers, small businesses and municipalities issuing bonds. It also requests additional funding for Obama's educational reform initiative, Race to the Top.

    When J.J. Abrams and his team first signed on to resurrect "Star Trek," Hollywood insiders questioned whether sci-fi fans still cared about the franchise. After a $76.5 million opening this past weekend the previous franchise record-holder was "First Contact" with a mere $30 million — you can consider "Trek" successfully rebooted. And as you read this, a whole new series of sequels are being planned for this new alternate reality. "One of the obstacles that we found ourselves butting up against [when we took on the job] was this idea that we already knew the fate of the characters," writer/producer...

    It was described as a “phantasmagorical cocktail of inventions”, a “masonic plot” and a “pot pourri of lies”. Now a nervous Vatican is braced for the sequel to The Da Vinci Code and the return of its nemesis, Dan Brown. Angels & Demonsis the latest Brown thriller to be turned into a film, and already the Catholic Church is agonising over how best to respond: to urge the faithful to boycott the film, or to ignore it? The Vatican and the Italian Catholic Church condemned The Da Vinci Codein its book and film version, but some church officials argued that...
  • Kindergarten Legislature: A Schwarzenegger sequel?

    When Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, the old "Kindergarten Cop" himself, accused the Legislature of acting like kindergarteners when the special session on the state's financial mess ended Tuesday in a rash of partisan name-calling and finger-pointing, he wasn't exactly being fair. The legislators were acting like politicians, who, unlike many 5-year-olds, really don't play well together. Take, for example, the Democrats' plan to raise money to close the budget gap. Schwarzenegger, after years of opposing any new taxes, had finally admitted that cuts alone couldn't solve the problem and braved the outrage of his fellow Republicans by proposing a 1-1/2 cent...

    Giant shape-shifting robots invaded the Antelope Valley this week as a production crew for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" shot scenes for the action sequel at a Palmdale quarry. The crew arrived Monday and was slated to stay through today, filming at Service Rock Quarry, at Palmdale Boulevard and 75th Street East, and at Antelope Valley Aggregate on Avenue T in Littlerock. The quarry is doubling as an excavation site in an action sequence featuring a helicopter, pyrotechnic explosions, wind machines, debris and gunfire. "Transformers" crew members are occupying a large base camp with rows of trailers, trucks and cars,...

    LOS ANGELES ( The team behind "10.5" has reassembled to once again disassemble the North American continent. Filming on "10.5: Apocalypse," the sequel to NBC's successful 2004 disaster miniseries, began last week in Montreal, with Kim Delaney, Beau Bridges and David Cubitt reprising their roles and the same behind-the-camera team in place as well. There's no official word on an airdate yet, but given the start date, "Apocalypse" could possibly be ready to go by November sweeps. "We are shooting this sequel on digital, which is allowing us to achieve a whole new level of visual effects and style that...

    Among those in their glory Monday at the capture of Saddam Hussein was movie director John Milius, an unapologetic traditionalist who has long contended he is blacklisted by liberal Hollywood for his love of the military. The Army's 4th Infantry Division, which used 600 troops to capture Hussein, apparently borrowed the operation's code name — Red Dawn — from Milius' 1984 Cold War drama of that name. In the flick, Soviet troops invade America, only to be repelled by a resistance movement coordinated by a group of Colorado high school students.

    LOS ANGELES, July 15 — Miramax Films will take the unusual and potentially risky move of releasing "Kill Bill," the much-anticipated Quentin Tarantino martial arts action-adventure film, as two movies, the first to open in the fall. Miramax will in effect be taking a three-hour film with a 200-page script and turning it into a serial. Harvey Weinstein, a co-founder of Miramax, which is financing the film, said in an interview on Monday that the first installment would be in theaters on Oct. 10. The second release date is in still being negotiated, but it could be two to six...
