Take this bit of news with a pinch of salt for now because Matthew Vaughn has announced he wants to get back into the Kick-Ass franchise and make a Hit Girl prequel. Speaking to Yahoo! UK, the director chimed in on the franchise he helped get off the ground. “I’m not happily done with the franchise, for sure,” said Vaughn. “We’re working on an idea for a prequel of how did Hit Girl and Big Daddy become Hit Girl and Big Daddy. If we make that, hopefully that will be the sorbet for the people that didn’t like Kick-Ass 2, and then we can go off and make Kick-Ass 3. But I think we’ve got to do this prequel just to regain the love that we had with Kick-Ass.”
A 24 Series Without Jack Bauer
Hard to imagine but there could be a 24 series without Jack Bauer. Kiefer Sutherland, who made the character famous in the series has all but ruled out reprising his role in a new series. “I’m not coming back to do 24 because there are other things I want to do. And when they said limited-series run, I meant it. But I’ve always felt, from Season 1 on, that 24 is such a great idea that this can go on forever,” said the actor. However, despite refuting another series starring role, the actor is nevertheless open to a cameo appearance should it be available.
Disney Looks To Maleficent 2
With the interest behind reimagined fairy-tales as popular as ever, it’s certainly not surprising to find out that Disney wants to push forward a sequel to Maleficent.

Disney is looking to develop Maleficent 2 and they want Angelina Jolie to reprise her character in the film. No word yet if fellow cast members such as Elle Fanning, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple, Sam Riley and Brenton Thwaites will be back if the sequel does get made.

Moviegoers will probably be treated to a return to Genovia for a third instalment to the Princess Diaries franchise. According to reports, Disney is planning to reboot the property which is credited for launching the career of Anne Hathaway. Although the Oscar winner has ruled out a third film, a cameo isn’t totally out of the question. Princess Diaries was released nearly 15 years ago and is based on a novel by Meg Cabot. The film spawned the sequel The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, which co-starred Chris Pine. Its speculated that the sequel will hit cinemas in 2017.
