When George Lucas sold his 'Star Wars' empire to Disney, there was a question of who then would control Indiana Jones, as the films were made by Lucasfilm but distributed by Paramount. Today it was ironed out that Disney now controls the rights to all future Indiana Jones adventures.
Two days ago, it was announced that the revered holiday classic 'It's a Wonderful Life' was up to get a sequel called 'It's a Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story.' But today, Paramount, who owns the rights to the original film and the short story on which the film was based, have said that it can't happen without their involvement and they're willing to get litigious over it.
Last we heard, three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson wasn't totally retired, but the 76-year old had become so choosy about his work that it's possible 2010's 'How Do You Know' could be his last feature film. Well, not if Tom Cruise has anything to say about it, as he's wooing Jack to star along with him in 'El Presidente' for his 'Edge of Tomorrow' director Doug Liman.
It seems like 'Iron Man' director Jon Favreau needed to lick his wounds after the fiasco that was 'Cowboys and Aliens,' as that film's failure may have led to a number of his follow-ups falling apart (he was once set to direct both 'Magic Kingdom' and 'Jersey Boys'). But after directing the lower budget 'Chef' it looks like he'll be helming a new franchise as he's up for the new adaptation of 'The Jungle Book.'
The primary cast of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy have all but guaranteed they'll be showing up in the J.J. Abrams-directed 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' though there was a question if Harrison Ford would return. The latest report is that not only will Ford be back, he may be in for all three films in the new trilogy. And supposedly part of the deal to get Han Solo to return involves work starting on 'Indiana Jones 5.'
Dealing with Charlie Hunnam's recent departure, the makers of '50 Shades of Grey' had to make quick work of finding a new actor to play Christian Grey. The replacement has been found. It's Jamie Dornan.
UPDATE: Now with a bonus, international trailer below, with tons of new footage!
Why would a man have a bag of bowling balls and a scorpion terrarium in his car? Well, that's Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) for you. And if the first full trailer for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues' didn't hit as many high notes as one might hope, this latest trailer delivers and then some.
For those playing the Oscar guessing game at home, please update your playing cards as George Clooney's 'The Monuments Men' has bowed out of the 2013 Oscar season. It was just announced that the film has been pushed into 2014, likely to be released in the early months of next year.
