Tom Cruise To Star, Produce MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: 4

More of this...

Tom Cruise is set to return to Mission Impossible: 4, and will team with J.J. Abrams (director of MI:3) to help produce the film, according to Deadline. Meanwhile, scribes Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec (frequent writers on Abrams’ Alias TV series) are hard at work on fleshing out the screenplay while Cruise and Abrams are searching for a director.

Thanks to Collider, we also have a planned release date as well, according to the recent press release: Memorial Day 2011.

...and less of that.

While I have enjoyed the last two MI films, the second was rather silly. I still think the first was the best, and can only hope they return to that kind of writing and tone. For all the hate Cruise gets, I still am a fan of his work so I will definitely keep yall updated on where the film goes.

Nolan Working On DARK KNIGHT Sequel, SUPERMAN

Christopher Nolan, more god than man in many fans’ eyes, is reportedly working on the planned rehash of Superman by WB, while his brother (Jonathan Nolan) and frequent collaborator (David S. Goyer) are carefully crafting ideas for the next Batman film, according to Deadline. Now, let’s get two things straight: Nolan hasn’t signed on to direct either of the films, and he hasn’t signed on for anything involving the possible sequel to The Dark Knight.

However, these are steps in the right direction, and Nolan’s involvement in the next Superman film can only benefit it, directing or not. The sources for Deadline state that Nolan isn’t likely to direct the next Supes flick, but his edgy, gritty little mitts are likely to show up all over the film in its production qualities. Remember that Nolan likes to base things more in reality and get away from the campier take that many comic-book adaptations take.

I can see a healthy balance of the past Superman flicks and the more gruff comics version in terms of tone for the next film. The movie will also have nothing to do with the Bryan Singer adaptation of a few years back, so stay tuned.

ZOMBIELAND Scribes Talk Sequel…In 3-D!

Time to nut up, or shut up

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have been quite the hit lately, coming on board for the upcoming Deadpool film and the G.I. Joe sequel, but they haven’t forgotten their first love—Zombieland. Just released on DVD and Blu-ray last week, the hilarious zombie romp is powered by a spot-on performance by Woody Harrelson as Tallahassee, and has a great cast around him as well.

The sequel is already in the works, and with all of the principal cast, director, and writers on board, and this time the film will be in 3-D. They spoke with MTV recently to discuss their plans, including adding a love interest for Tallahassee, and you better get ready for some flying fluids. More after the jump.
