If you’re wondering what the title of the sequel of Guardians of the Galaxy will be then you’ll be pleased to know it will be simply called, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Marvel Studios head, Kevin Feige let the cat out of the bag so to speak in a recent press interview for Marvel’s Ant-Man, which is due to be released in July. Moments later, director James Gunn confirmed the title on a post on his Facebook page. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to begin filming early next year.
Donald Trump Gets Fired
In a reversal of sorts, Donald Trump received the axe from long-time partner NBC due to a recent string of derogatory statements by the billionaire. Trump earned the ire of some parties after his recent comments on Mexican immigrants in his speech announcing his bid to run for the President of the United States. NBC evidently did not take too kindly to his statement, which resulted in Trump being removed from The Apprentice. The network has also decided to no longer air Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which he runs.
London Has Fallen Teaser
We’ve finally gotten a first look at London Has Fallen, which sees Gerard Butler reprising his role as the tough as nails Secret Service agent assigned to protect the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart). The sequel to Olympus Has Fallen promises to be an explosive affair with terrorists converging unto London and practically turning it into ash. The first teaser trailer sees many of London’s iconic landmarks being destroyed, blown-up and burnt to the ground. We can’t wait to see what the first full length trailer will bring. London Has Fallen opens in cinemas early 2016.
Fatal Attraction The Series
Yet another iconic film is being given the small screen treatment. According to reports, FOX is looking to develop a series based on Fatal Attraction. The thriller that focused on an extramarital affair that turns deadly was a substantial hit in the late 80s. Fatal Attraction starred Michael Douglas, Glenn Close and Anne Archer. It’s unknown what direction the series will take or if it will follow the film closely or if at all but FOX has already assembled former writers of Mad Men to work on the series.
The CHiPs Movie Gets Greenlit
We haven’t heard much about Dax Shepard’s proposed CHiPs reboot for quite a while but co-star Michael Pena has provided an update about the production. “It’s more like a Lethal Weapon where there’s a lot of action and what we wanted to do is if there’s any comedy that we do, it’s not like one-liners here and there, like we’re the guys always being stand-up comedians,” said Pena during a recent interview. We wonder if Shepard has intentionally steered it away from the comedic platform that was used for other 70s and 80s adaptations like Starsky and Hutch and Dukes of Hazzard, whilst giving CHiPs an R-rated treatment instead. Personally, we think it’s the right call but this could limit the box-office potential of the film somewhat.
