Good News: Peter Jackson is in talks with New Line to turn the two Hobbit films into a trilogy. Jackson told Comic Con that there was so much great material in the appendices that they could easily put together a third film. And surely New Line won't turn away potential for a third box office fortune? Then again, the logistics of signing up cast and crew for eleventh hour additional scenes would be a nightmare. This one could go either way. But if anyone can, Jackson can.
Bad News: director Marc Webb does not look set to return for Amazing Spider-Man 2 after doing such a good job on the recent reboot. Columbia Pictures bigwig Doug Belgrad has hinted that Webb encountered difficulties during filming, especially with the Lizard CGI transformations. Plus, Webb is attached to direct Jesus Christ Superstar so his schedule would be tight for the planned 2 May 2014 release date.
Mad News: not only are Sony Pictures planning the 21 Jump Street sequel (whoop) and another Men in Black (sigh) but they are also considering a Jumanji re-imagining (say what!). Doug Belgrad from Columbia said: "We're going to try and re-imagine Jumanji and update it for the present." What does that mean?! Are we throwing out the dice? Will the new Jumanji game be a computer game... or a smartphone app?
Bond News: new Skyfall photos have been released. It's Daniel Craig on a bike! Judging from the spelling of taxi, Bond appears to be tearing around the streets of Turkey. Definitely a contender for Film of the Year.
