A gaggle of lovely but short movie news...

Hear, in one nice simple post I have for you not 1, not 2 but 4 lovely little bits of movie news for you!


T4

No not that Sunday morning music compilation of much crapness on TV, but the fourth in the Terminator franchise. The news is that the new young Chekhov from the Abrams Star Trek film (Anton Yelchin) is going to be playing the young Kyle Reese.

In McG's film (yeh that is the 'name' of the director), Reese is a survivor of the man-vs-machine war who becomes friends with an early edition of the Terminator cyborg. His grown-up son (Christian Bale), whom he fathered in the past with a rather easy Sarah Connor, is also now involved in a fight to save robot ravaged civilization from machine control.

Sounds cool, and it also sounds like McG is taking things under control and really going for the franchise all guns and lasers blazing! Though I don't really think Yelchin looks anything like the bad-ass Reese.

Justice League Mortal

First off, yep that's the name for the new film, read into that what you will. It, might make sense when we find out more about the plot.

It seems that the film has 90% chance of heading away from Australia after the film was refused the 40% "New Film Production Rebate" that WB was hoping for.

Director George Miller said, "A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Australian film industry is being frittered away because of very lazy thinking." He continued, "If that's going to be the final decision, they're throwing away hundreds of millions of dollars of investment that the rest of the world is competing for and, much more significantly, highly skilled creative jobs."

So that's the JL... M news.

Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk

Robert Downey Jr. said this:

“It happens to be a scene where I basically approach [William Hurt’s character, General Ross], and we may be considering going into some sort of limited partnership together,” So Iron Man will be in the Incredible Hulk.

Downey added “The great thing is he — and I don’t want to give too much away — but he’s in disrepair at the time I find him. It was really fun seeing him play this really powerful character who’s half in the bag.”

He also said that that one unnamed star would “probably appear in the end credits” of Iron Man. Ooh. We already know that Hillary Swank is making a cameo, so could this be Sam Jackson as Fury, damn I hope so?

The Wolfman

Finally here are the first two pictures from The Wolfman. These are indeed the excellent Benicio Del Toro in full on freaky make up. Very cool, and hit the link for much more!
