YES! If Marvel could release a series of Workplace Sensitivity Training Videos starring The Hulk, I might actually stay awake through one. :^)
That’s interesting. I’ve divided my time over the last 16 years over deep ocean exploration and filmmaking. I’ve made two movies in 16 years, and I’ve done eight expeditions. Last year I basically completely disbanded my production company’s development arm. So I’m not interested in developing anything. I’m in the “Avatar” business. Period. That’s it. I’m making “Avatar 2,” “Avatar 3,” maybe “Avatar 4,” and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them. I’m not interested in taking scripts. And that all sounds I suppose a little bit restricted, but the point is I think within the “Avatar” landscape I can say everything I need to say that I think needs to be said, in terms of the state of the world and what I think we need to be doing about it. And doing it in an entertaining way. And anything I can’t say in that area, I want to say through documentaries, which I’m continuing. I’ve done five documentaries in the last 10 years, and I’ll hopefully do a lot more. In fact, I’m doing one right now, which is on this, the Deep Sea Challenge project that we just completed the first expedition. So that’ll be a film that’ll get made this year and come out first quarter of next year.
*sigh* So he's "not interested in taking scripts", huh? So Cameron, what boring ass, cliche ridden, overdone script are you going to blatantly steal for Avatar 2?

No time for quick puns or jokes here, just a quick sitdown to share news of a project that movie nerds everywhere have been rabid over for years – Deadline Dorset reveals that the long-anticipated third film in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg‘s Cornetto Trilogy not only has a plot in place, but it also has a planned start date. That’s like, this year.The outlet reports that Working Title and Wright “have set a September start date for The World’s End,” which will serve as the final film of the trilogy that also includes Shaun Of The Dead and Hot Fuzz. As with the first two films, Wright will direct from a script that he’s penned with Pegg. Pegg will again star alongside Nick Frost in the film which, while total no-duh news, is so exciting to see in print that it’s a bit dizzying. The current plan is for the film to hit theaters in spring of next year, which is thrilling enough to make fans go a bit cross-eyed. Universal Pictures has not green lit the film just yet, but is “expected” to (again, duh).So what exactly is The World’s End going to be about? We’ve known that Wright and Pegg completed their script last month, but details have been scarce on its actual content. But no longer!Deadline reports that the plot of The World’s End is as follows: “20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.”Let’s see – pals, a pub, and a classic movie struggle wrapped up in Cornetto-flavored package? Sounds about right.
Sounds like a 2012/Day After Tomorrow end of the world type flick.
Quote from: Monty on May 09, 2012, 05:53:12 PMSounds like a 2012/Day After Tomorrow end of the world type flick.That's just the title.Although if they parody an apocolyptic thriller, without actually any end of the world stuff, that would be hilarious.
"Wet Hot American Summer" stars Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler are coming together to reteam with director David Wain on "They Came Together," a romantic comedy parody that will be produced through Lionsgate's microbudget division.Wain and his longtime collaborator Michael Showalter wrote the script shortly after "Wet Hot American Summer," though the project never got made, as Universal put the project into turnaround. Lionsgate is now gearing up for a July shoot. Showalter will produce, while Wain will exec produce. Lionsgate exec Matt Kaplan will oversee the project for the studio.When Joel (Rudd) and Molly (Poehler) meet, it's hate at first sight; his big corporation is the one that threatens to shut down her quirky knick-knack store. Story, which follows their predictably on-again/off-again relationship, features rom-com staples such as the jealous ex-girlfriend, the office jerk, scary in-laws, a boring dentist, a wise dog and beautiful shots of New York City in autumn.Both Rudd and Poehler participated in a table read of the script at the San Francisco Sketchfest back in January. Rudd has also been recurring on Poehler's NBC series "Parks and Recreation."Rudd has appeared in all of Wain's movies, including "The Ten," "Wanderlust" and "Role Models," the latter of which was a modestly-budgeted Universal comedy that went on to gross $92 million worldwide.Rudd will next be seen in Summit's high school pic "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and he also stars in Judd Apatow's "This Is 40." Thesp is attached to star in Paul Weitz's "Admission" and Lynn Shelton's "Laggies," as well as Adam McKay's highly-anticipated "Anchorman" sequel. Rudd most recently wrapped Phil Morrison's "Lucky Dog," which co-stars Paul Giamatti.Poehler recently wrapped Black Bear Pictures' comedy "A.C.O.D." and is currently filming Matthew Weiner's "You Are Here," in which she plays Zach Galifianakis' sister.
The actor-comedians spar as rival politicos in The Campaign, an election satire directed by Jay Roach, which just released its official trailer following an amusing double feature of mock political ads.Ferrell recycles his SNL-honed George W. Bush impression on incumbent U.S. congressman Cam Brady, who has a twist of John Edwards-esque sleaze. "My hair could lift a car off a baby if it had to," he brags while gazing at his reflection in the mirror.His foil in the race is Marty Huggins, a twee family man with a Ron Swanson mustache, portrayed by Galifianakis , who shoots an arrow in Brady's direction in one scene.The film premieres Aug. 10, and co-stars Jason Sudeikis, John Lithgow and Dan Aykroyd.
