"...In February it was announced that Blomkamp would be directing a film to be set at some unspecified time after the events of the then-still-up-in-the-air Prometheus 2 story, and Alien director Ridley Scott was set to produce for 20th Century Fox. No story or script was ready at the time, but Blomkamp indicated on social media that it would be a proper installment of the Alien series.
A change of vision on Scott’s part might have had something to do with putting Blomkamp’s film on hold. As initially conceived, Prometheus 2 would have followed the further adventures of Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw as she seeks to uncover more about the events of Prometheus. However, Scott eventually set those plans aside, revealing in a recent interview that Prometheus 2 is going to be more of a proper prequel to Aliens, saying that “it’s going to be Alien: Paradise Lost.” That concept isn’t the same, but it is a bit closer to where Blomkamp wanted to go. More information about the future direction of the franchise presumably will come later.
Either way, Bloomkamp’s Alien movie appears for all intents and purposes comatose for now, while Prometheus 2 is slated to go into production in early 2016."
"Jean-Claude Van Damme and director Ernie Barbarash (Falcon Rising) are joining forces for the fourth time in Antwerp Heist, a Belgian-Canadian co-production that starts shooting in March (via HLN).
The film is presumed to be loosely based on the real events of the 2003 Antwerp Diamond Heist, dubbed the “heist of the century,” which was the largest diamond heist in history – with stolen jewellery valued over $100 million.
Van Damme and Barbarash previously collaborated together on 2011′s Assassination Games, 2012′s Six Bullets and 2015′s Pound of Flesh."
"News broke recently that Underworld director Len Wiseman has signed on to helma sixth Die Hard film, tentatively titled Die Hard: Year One.
It's rumored that the film will be a prequel set long before the events of the first Die Hard, and may only featurelongtime star Bruce Willis in flash-forward scenes.
ET caught up with Willis at the New York premiere of his new film Rock the Kasbah on Monday, and the 60-year-old action star said he's excited about revisiting the franchise.
"It's a very good idea, a really tricky idea, and I'm very happy about it," Willis shared. "It's a really cool idea, because it's the origin story. It's gonna happen at the beginning of this. We're going to bounce back and forth."
In 1988, Willis was the right man in the wrong place at the wrong time as the iconic hero cop John McClane, who put his life on the line to save an office building full of innocent people from murderous thieves in the original Die Hard.
McClane then found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time over and over again across a series ofincreasingly wild and crazy misadventures, until his most recent romp through Russia in 2013's A Good Day to Die Hard, the fifth installment in the series."
Who wants to bet that the adventure of young John McClane ends up being far crazier then the first Die Hard movie were he's supposedly just an average cop?
