Sue and Mark are singing these fun movies on the way and in the works….
( Under the Sea…..) , Sofia Coppola is in negotiations to direct “The Little Mermaid” for Working Title and Universal. Caroline Thompson will rewrite the script with previous drafts penned by Kelly Marcel and Abi Morgan.
Not much is known about how this take will compare to previous versions of the Hans Christian Andersen novel, which followed a mermaid who wished to become human after falling in love with a man she saved from drowning.
( Who Ya Gonna Call….) , The third “Ghostbusters” installment is happening – just not with Ivan Reitman at the helm. The “Ghostbusters 1-2″ director says he’s officially turned down the opportunity to direct the long-awaited follow-up, which he says will likely begin production in early 2015 with an all-new cast of spook-hunters.
( Daaaaa….Daaaaa, Da Da Da Daaaaaa. Da ) , A new Star Wars film is getting closer by the day, and Lucasfilm and Disney have just announced some new information on the status of the production. Episode VII — co-written and directed by J.J. Abrams — is set to begin shooting this May at Pinewood Studios in London. For the first time, however, the team is giving an indication of what fans can expect to see when the film hits theaters in 2015. According to today’s release, it will take place 30 years after Return of the Jedi, which capped off the original Star Warstrilogy, and “will star a trio of new young leads along with some very familiar faces.”
