SciFiWire: Spidey4 dropped!, Raimi and Maguire out! on to WoW!! and hey how bout EvilDead 4!!?!?!?!

Sam Raimi at San Diego Comic Con 2008

Oh! Can we get the World of Warcraft movie now instead?! Awesome!! Oooh! and Evil Dead 4??? Please??? This is like freeing Whedon of Dollhouse, free Sam Raimi! more fantasy! more horror!!

SciFiWire:

[Updated: Sony has confirmed this news. The new Spider-Man reboot will take the story back to high school and could compete with the next Star Trek, which is due in the summer of 2012! See the full announcement below.]

Seems like the problems hanging up Spider-Man 4 are more serious than previously reported: Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood is now reporting that director Sam Raimi and his entire cast, led by Tobey Maguire, have dropped out and that Sony Pictures will reboot the series with a new director and new cast for 2012.

Wow.

Here’s how Finke reported it:

Mike Fleming and I have just confirmed that Sony Pictures decided today to reboot the Spider-Man franchise after franchise director Sam Raimi pulled out of Spider-Man 4 because he felt he couldn’t make its summer release date and keep the film’s creative integrity. This means that Raimi and the cast including star Tobey Maguire are out. There will be no Spider-Man 4.Instead, Mike Fleming is told, the studio will focus on a reboot script by Jamie Vanderbilt with a new director and a new cast. All this took place today at meeting on the lot today. An official Sony Pictures news release about it is expected.

Fleming also hears that Raimi could now move on to his proposed World of Warcraft movie, or a film based on Dennis Lehane’s The Given Day….

Go read the entire piece to see Sony’s press release.

The franchise is dead. Long live the franchise!! Weinstein Co. to bring Halloween to 3D in 2010…

Halloween montage created by hitmanyr2kHQ

Well! I am SOOOOOOOO glad Rob Zombie did not manage to kill the franchise. It should NOT have to go out with the dreck that is the H2 remake as its last hurrah.

I have read in several places that the Weinstein Co. is having some financial issues. I think ‘Halloween’ may have the lure of the Kavorka! No seriously though I guess that is why they are turning to tried and true box office like Scream and Halloween. Whatever it takes to let the franchise recover from being ‘Zombied’, I am all for it!

SciFiWire:

Further establishing a trend for 3-D genre pictures of a kind not seen since the 1950s, Weinstein Co. co-Chairman Bob Weinstein has announced that the next movie in the rebooted Halloween franchise will be Halloween 3D, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Rob Zombie, the director of the recent Halloween and this past weekend’s strong opener Halloween II, is currently developing a second remake of The Blob and will not be attached.

Okay good news is Zombie is not involved, bad news is Zombie is going after another classic the Blob, Why? Why you do this to me Demme Zombie? The Devil’s Rejects, although not my kind of film, was clearly what he wants to do, so why keep reworking old horror/scifi and pixxing people off? Ahh maybe THAT is why, he LIKES to pixx people off and maybe doesnt get enough juice from the originals? Nah, more likely it is that dopey producers will not underwrite anything without it being YARM today….

Recall the Kevin Dillon The Blob YARM in the 80s? I mean when you are YARMING YARM you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel creatively aren’t you?

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Speaker knows: Pelosi finds the villain of the piece…

Dems miss the SELF-imposed August recess deadline on health care reform. Who, who can be to blame!? Not the Dem leadership, not TOTUS, but who? The Shadow Nancy knows, BWAAAAHAAAAAA Muhuuuuhaaaaaaaa!!!

Of course, they’ve been immoral all along,” she added. “They are the villains in this, they have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening and the public has to know.. They have had a good thing going for a long time at the expense of the American people and the health of our country.”…

This is the opening of The Shadow, played by the legendary Orson Welles. This episode is “The Circle of Death”, which originally aired November 28, 1937. It’s only fitting that this is being played over my 1936 Zenith console radio you see. This was given to me by a friend, and I have restored it to working condition. Hope you enjoy it!
