Anything which looks like news

Movie news link sauce with added pepper

Some links to random movie stories (language and links in some of these pages may not always be safe for work)

Enjoy.

Bourne 4?

Although based on the original concept from the Robert Ludlum books, the fourth instalment will follow an original story. Director Paul Greengrass and star Matt Damon will return, and the movie will be produced by Frank Marshall.

If it’s truly as good as the first three, I’ll be happy.  If not, it’ll be a travesty.  Later, I’ll claim that night time is dark because there’s no light.

Oh, and Kevin Smith in space!

It’s cold outside

Hadn’t seen this anywhere until today,

… announced by Robert Llewellyn for Grant Naylor Productions this week at the UKTV seasonal press launch, the project is a short series of brand new specials to celebrate the 21st birthday of Red Dwarf.
Doug Naylor will be masterminding the four half-hour instalments, and the regular cast will all be reprising their iconic roles. They are being made by GNP for UKTV’s free-to-air channel, Dave – our new best friends!

Full details here.  But basically, it’s 2 x half hour real new episodes with the original cast, 1 x half hour behind the scenes thing and 1 x half hour ‘clips’ show.  Check the article for full info.

Empire’s top 500 movies of all time

Empire magazine (online) has published a 500 greatest movies of all time, as voted on by 10,000 readers, 150 random hollywood folk and 50 film critics.

The format is a bit annoying (it means you have to click through lots of pages to see everything), but it makes for an interesting top 500.

You can probably guess #1 without much effort, but there was some surprises in the list (although with 500 movies, that’s a lot of variation in opinion and not much between them).

Lethal Weapon 5

So it looks like Lethal Weapon 5 may soon be in production.  Little bits of news and rumour here and here.

Oh and it looks like the rumours of a Blade Runner 2 weren’t quite as accurate as feared.  Which is good, because I truly can’t imagine a follow-up movie being any good.  I guess if they did an Alien -> Aliens kind of thing where the second one was set in the same world but had a totally different slant it might be worthwhile.
