James Cameron May Convert Terminator 2 to 3D
Scoop This: 'Terminator 2' in 3D, Jackman Confirms Aronofsky for 'Wolverine 2' and Mark Wahlberg as 'The Crow'?
Though he's already busy converting Titanic to 3D, James Cameron may not waste any time in revisiting some of his other films and giving them the 3D treatment too. While speaking to the NY Times, he said, "I think that's the true and correct use of the conversion technology, is for movies that are already done and are already beloved films. I want to do it with Titanic, maybe I'll go back to T2," I don't know."
Cameron admits that they're really taking their time with the Titanic conversion to make sure they get it right, and if there's anyone you should trust with 3D, it's this guy. We may not need 3D conversions of Titanic and Terminator 2 (especially since they were never shot with 3D in mind), but if we're going to get them then expect the conversion to be done right.
Are you looking forward to seeing Titanic in 3D, or do you feel it's a waste?
Hugh Jackman Confirms Darren Aronofsky as 'Wolverine 2' Director
Speaking to Vulture recently, Hugh Jackman spoke a little bit about Wolverine 2, calling it a film that will give you "something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure." It's been rumored for a couple weeks that Darren Aronofsky (The Wrestler, Black Swan) would be taking over directing duties on the X-Men sequel, and Jackman has confirmed the deal to be done, adding, "This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. [Aronofsky] is kind of dark," Jackman said. "But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that'll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky's] going to make it fantastic. There's going to be some meat on the bones."
Wolverine 2 will find the X-Men hero in Japan, fighting for the honor of a woman he loves while fighting off crazy samurai warriors. The film begins production early next year, and there's currently no release date set. Will Aronofsky provide the jolt this franchise needs, or is he too strange of a choice to direct a Wolverine movie? Let us know what you think…
Mark Wahlberg Offered Lead in 'The Crow' Remake?
In one of the odder casting stories we've seen this week, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Mark Wahlberg has been offered the lead role in a remake of The Crow. The original 1994 film is infamous because star Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee's son) was accidentally shot and killed during production. Ironically, it starred Lee as a brutally murdered man who returns to life to avenge the murder of his fiancée. Oh, and he wears an all-black leather suit and freaky make-up.
Mark Wahlberg isn't exactly the guy we picture in this role (he's not dark and brooding enough), but he is a star. What do you think? Is Wahlberg the guy for The Crow, or should a role like that go to someone like, say, Robert Pattinson?
