Bank! Astro Boy! Fight!
The animation studio making Astro Boy
almost went under
thanks to Citigroup pulling investment.
Look, bank. You can make it impossible for us to ever get out of debt. But there will be hell to pay when you mess with our movies with little cartoon boys in short pants.
I Am Not Yet Legend
Francis Lawrence, while working on his new gig, the TV show Kings
says he's waiting on a script for a prequel to I Am Legend
that's more of what it's like to be the last man on Earth. In other words, Will Smith sleeping in the tub with the dog. The same stuff happened, but he wants another hour and a half of it instead of getting to the parts with the fighting. There was no plot-starting storyline yet. They should also do a prequel to Titanic
where the boat sits at the dock and a prequel to Misery
where Kathy Bates reads James Caan's books.
Jericho Movie Talks Offer Hope For Better Tomorrow
producer Jon Turteltaub got another gig on murder mystery series Harper's Island
. Not content with that, now he baits the hapless Jericho
He says the cast is onboard for his development of a Jericho movie, and it "would be the bigger, full on American version of what’s going on beyond the town in Jericho." Put me down for a pound of nuts. Preferably boiled, because if I'm backing a doomed venture, at least I'll have tasty nuts in my mouth.
