Turns out, Murphy’s still a funny and engaging guy and he dropped some bombshells about his plans for the future too.
Fox will reportedly team with Sony Pictures Television to launch a new half hour series based on the 2009 film Zombieland. Should the series get fast-tracked for a 2012-2013 TV season spot, the film sequel would be scrapped. Which would you rather see? A Zombieland sequel or a TV series based on the original movie?
It seems unlikely that anyone who saw the original The Fast and the Furious would have guessed the film would be the starting point for one of Universal Pictures’ biggest franchises. Now comes news that it may get even bigger.

While it seems like all of Marvel Films’ attention is currently being lavished on its large scale production of The Avengers, the comic studio is also hard at work prepping multiple other projects for its post Avengers schedule. Studio head Kevin Feige even outlined some of those potential plans, some of which may surprise you.
Mel Gibson is reportedly developing a film about Jewish warrior Judah Maccabee for Warner Bros. This is quite ironic, since Gibson’s public downfall began after he made a series of anti-Semitic remarks to the officers arresting him for DUI back in 2006. Can Gibson resuscitate his career?

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller appear to be serious about getting their Sin City sequel up and running after years of discussions – and now they’ve added an Oscar-winning screenwriter to their roster of creative talent.

Universal, who dropped the adaptation of Clue a few weeks ago, has now put their Ouija Board movie into turnaround.

If sci-fi fans thought life couldn’t get any better when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to the Alien franchise with his new film Prometheus, then today’s mega-news is something they’d better sit down to hear.
