Terminator Salvation: McG talks Sequels 2 and 3 and TSCC…

terminator-salvation-poster

Great interview over at Comic Book Resources. This bit caught my eye:

So would you say that “The Sarah Connor Chronicles’” struggle is not evidence of a disdain for the Terminator franchise, but rather just that particular series?

Yeah, but that’s a tricky business. You know, the state of television is in the toilet. It’s hard to throw stones at any one show here or there. I mean, the show does well enough, it just finished season two and you know I’m going to call those guys at Fox and see what their intention is as far as the future of the show. I hope they keep it on the air but they got a tough business. They got to do what they got to do. So we’ll see where that takes us.

Truthfully, we were sensitive to [the fact that there was already a Terminator show on TV] early on but there just hasn’t been any data that would suggest that one is related to the other.

Have you started to discuss what the sequels to this film will be about and if so, can you tease us with the films possible titles?

We do indeed have the titles of the second and third picture and I’m telling you, what we’re going to do with the second one, should we be able to make it, I can’t tell you how excited I am about it. Let’s just say it involves time-travel and it involves John Connor once again trying to galvanize the forces of those who think he’s crazy. I’m just not going to tell you what period it takes place in.

Save TSCC.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: Where the film splits the book….

SciFiWire:

Empire Online reports that the upcoming two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows movie will split at a cliffhanger moment.

The magazine spoke with star Daniel Radcliffe and franchise producer David Heyman.

“We’ve played around with a couple of places,” Heyman told the magazine. “And ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it’s not necessarily where one might expect. You want to give a sense of completion, on one hand, but a sense that there’s another piece, more to come. We tried one, and then Steve [Kloves, the screenwriter,] came up with the idea to try it another way, and when we tried that, it felt just right.”

Radcliffe added that the split is “at a very tense cliffhanger”, which may be a bigger clue for fans.

Stimulus Unemployment Update: TX and AZ legislature move on changes for funding…

AZ Capitol Times:

The Senate suspended rules April 20 to consider amending two bills to ensure that Arizona collects federal stimulus money for Medicaid programs and for extended unemployment benefits.

Today, the Senate Commerce and Economic Development Committee is scheduled to hear the strike-everything amendments to S1102 and S1322. The plan is to pass the measures this week. Both bills contain an emergency clause and would require a supermajority to pass…

…S1322, meanwhile, would allow Arizonans to receive extended unemployment benefits at no cost to the state through the end of the year. …the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act made several temporary changes to the extended unemployment benefits program to say the federal government will pay 100 percent of the program’s cost – instead of the usual 50 percent.

First, though, the state must change statute to reflect that the federal government will cover 100 percent of the program’s cost through the end of 2009. Other technical changes also must be made.

Existing state statute provides for a 13-week extension of unemployment benefits if certain “trigger points” are met based on unemployment factors in the labor market.

Department of Economic Security spokeswoman Liz Barker said the trigger points have never been reached. It is unlikely they will be reached in the current economic downturn without statutory changes, she said.

TX: News-Journal.com:

Senators just voted 19-11 for Sen. Kevin Eltife’s bill to expand the state’s unemployment insurance program in order to draw down $555 million in federal stimulus dollars. The bill would ignore Gov. Rick Perry’s wish that the state not receive the stimulus dollars for unemployment…

…Eltife said the federal dollars will cover the cost of changes to the program for nine years and result in the state borrowing less money to keep the state’s unemployment trust fund afloat.

Perry has said he thinks the current unemployment program in Texas works just fine, and that increasing the benefits will increase unemployment taxes on businesses once the federal money runs out….
