Movie News Today

Apologies, again, for the lack of content the last couple of weeks. Work this week has kept me out until midnight, don't have as much energy and time to get stuff done that I normally do. I've also been putting a lot of time towards a 7,000 word Dallas Mavericks column that no one is ever going to read. Ah, well. I'll be back to normal next week for sure.

Steven Spielberg is brainstorming, spit balling really, a concept for another "Jurassic Park" film. The last two films in this franchise were average at best but I will NEVER forget the awesomeness of that first movie. Never. So if this happens, I'm in.

Looks like Russell Crowe is going to play Jor-El (Superman's dad) in next year's Man of Steel reboot. Big shoes to fill for Crowe but that's another solid casting choice.

James Mangold ("3:10 to Yuma") will direct the next "Wolverine" movie. Thoroughly unimpressed by this choice.

Meanwhile, Simon West will direct the second installment of "The Expendables." I'm still not so sure that this movie needs a sequel but West, fresh off the much-better-than-you'd-expect "The Mechanic" is a solid choice.

Disney/Pixar has released a poster for next year's "John Carter of Mars." There are a lot of movies I'm looking forward to in 2012 and "JCM" is up there. Very excited.
