Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

Thoughts of the day

RoboCop

RoboCop

I’m glad to hear that MGM’s new Robocop movie will be more of a sequel and not a remake – that according to Bloody-Disgusting. Like I said when the re-launch of this franchise was announced, it would be a big mistake for the creative team involved to act like Paul Verhoeven’s 1980 original didn’t exist. The film is just too good. The site also reports that the studio is close to signing director Darren Aronofsky (The Fountain) to helm the project. Hopefully all involved will keep the same tone and thought provoking creativity that the Verhoeven original had and produce a film with the R-rating that this franchise should maintain.

Will Ferrell

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Will Ferrell (Talladega nights) has attached himself to what sounds like a pretty interesting high concept comedy titled “2-Face”. It’s described as an edgy story about a guy with a split personality; one a racist and the other a bleeding heart liberal. This sounds like a project with a lot of potential.

Megan Fox

Let’s touch on an interesting story making the rounds about the fact that actress Megan Fox was ordered by director Michael Bay to gain ten pounds before she started filming the sequel to Transformers. According to Fox News, evidentially Ms Fox lost too many pounds and looked a wee bit thin after being asked to lose weight for her last film, Jennifer’s Body. I don’t know what to say about this, other than it gives me a chance to post a picture of her on the site and when I do that the world always seems to be just a little bit brighter! Oh, by the way, Transformers 2 hits theaters next summer!
 
Finally, today I must admit I’m excited because I’ll soon be reporting on the film everyone’s been talking about for what now seems like forever – and that’s SPACE CHIMPS! Sorry I mean The DARK KNIGHT. Fresh from the Midnight Opening I’ll be giving you my thoughts today.
