Weekly Ketchup: Prometheus 2 Announced for 2016

Plus, news on reboots of Scarface, the Terminator franchise, and The Amityville Horror.

This week's Ketchup includes movie development news stories about sequels like Barbershop 3, and Prometheus 2, and new reboots/remakes of Amityville, Scarface, and Terminator: Genesis. All that, and... Kevin Spacey as Winston Churchill?


This Week's Top Story

PROMETHEUS 2 (WITH MULTIPLE FASSBENDERS) ANNOUNCED FOR 2016

Last fall, we learned that Prometheus star Noomi Rapace was signed to star in a science fiction drama called What Happened to Monday?, in which she will play a set of identical septuplet sisters. This week, we learned that the "mystery Ridley Scott" movie that 20th Century has scheduled for March 4, 2016, is in fact Prometheus 2. And what ties those two sentences together is confirmation that Michael Fassbender's "David" android character will be appearing in Prometheus 2 in multiple forms (sort of like what his costar Noomi Rapace is doing in that other movie). Part of the reason the movie is still officially an "Untitled Ridley Scott" movie on Fox's schedule might be because the title could be completely different from Prometheus 2, in the same way that Prometheus wasn't called "Alien: something." This sequel to a prequel at Fox joins Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which the studio is releasing on July 11, 2014. Michael Green, who cowrote Green Lantern, and wrote several episodes of Heroes, is now rewriting the original draft by Transcendence screenwriter Jack Paglen. Ridley Scott expects to start filming the Prometheus sequel in the fall of 2014.

Fresh Developments This Week

#1 THE NEXT SCARFACE LANDS ACCLAIMED CHILEAN DIRECTOR OF NO

We've known for a while now that Universal's next version of Scarface, which was previously about Italian and Cuban immigrants (as played by Paul Muni and Al Pacino, respectively), would have a new background to reflect a modern 21th century setting. This week, we learned that the new Scarface will be a Mexican immigrant gangster living in Los Angeles. We now also know that the director will be Chilean director Pablo Larrain, whose film No was a critical darling last year, and was also an Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. The script was written by another Academy Award nominee, Paul Attanasio (for Quiz Show and Donnie Brasco). This third Scarface is being described as "a more mythic origin story that explores where Tony's physical and emotional wounds come from and how they shaped him as a man."


#2 ICE CUBE AND FRIENDS RETURNING FOR NEW HAIRCUTS AT BARBERSHOP 3

Depending upon your perspective, the early 00's either feel like just yesterday or long ago, but regardless, time does keep on keeping on. It's hard for this writer to believe that it's really already been ten years since the 2004 release of Barbershop 2: Back in Business (which focused the Ice Cube franchise more on ladies like Queen Latifah and Eve). Well, it has, but MGM (a studio that is sort of making a business of revisiting old movie properties) has plans on going back to the neighborhood. Ice Cube, Queen Latifah, and Cedric the Entertainer are now all in talks with MGM to return for Barbershop 3. Ice Cube, whose movie career is on quite an upstream with the successes of 21 Jump Street and Ride Along, is also on board to produce Barbershop 3. MGM is currently looking for writers for the sequel project.


#3 KEVIN SPACEY TO BRING US WINSTON CHURCHILL'S FINEST HOURS AS CAPTAIN OF THE GATE

Whenever actors of one background sign on to portray a character of another background, it's natural to react with some skepticism. It's a tradition of sorts, however, that goes back to the very earliest days of cinema. And sometimes it works. With that approach, we now ask you to consider this week's news that New Jersey native Kevin Spacey is now attached to star as Winston Churchill in a biopic called Captain of the Gate. It's worth noting that Kevin Spacey, although a U.S. citizen, has been rewarded with a C.B.E. for his work as artistic director for the Old Vic theatre. Winston Churchill was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom twice, and this film will focus on the first term, which took Great Britain through the war years of 1940 to 1945. The project is currently looking for a director to tackle the script by Ben Kaplan, who previously worked on the History Channel documentaries about World War II, Vietnam, and Ronald Reagan. Besides his political skill, Winston Churchill was also quite a master of the English language, so it should be fun to see what Kevin Spacey can do with the role.


#4 PETER DINKLAGE TO TAKE ON CLASSIC VIDEO GAME CHARACTERS IN PIXELS

For a while now, we've been referring to Sony's adaptation of the FX-heavy short film Pixels as an Adam Sandler movie (he's also producing through Happy Madison), but this week, a new cast member signed on that might force us to re-evaluate our opinions. Game of Thrones costar Peter Dinklage is in final negotiations to join Pixels, about video game characters invading the real life New York City, a movie which is looking even more timely following the success of The LEGO Movie. Peter Dinklage joins the already cast Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and Josh Gad, as a group of "video game experts who are recruited by the government to help deal with the threat." Pixels will be directed by Chris Columbus of Harry Potter and Home Alone fame.


#5 ANCHORMAN DIRECTOR TO ADAPT MORE SERIOUS BUSINESS WITH THE BIG SHORT

The move from comedy to serious drama is rarely attempted by famous directors, possibly for a reason, but when it works, you get things like Recount (from Jay Roach) and almost the entire second half of Woody Allen's career (sort of). This week, we learned that director Adam McKay, who recently confirmed that the Anchorman franchise is done and out, is starting to make plans for exactly that sort of shift. McKay is in talks with Paramount Pictures and Brad Pitt's Plan B to write and direct an adaptation of a recent book about the 2000s credit and housing bubble bursting. The book in question by Michael Lewis is called The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. It's worth noting that a previous non-fiction adaptation produced by Plan B went on to become Moneyball.


#6 ARNOLD SCHWARZENGGER CONFIRMS RETURN FOR TERMINATOR: GENESIS

In recent months, as we've heard more official confirmations about casting in Terminator: Genesis, there's been a lingering question about whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger really was returning for a movie that is mostly being called a "reboot." If the movie is a reboot, isn't the usual expectation that none of the original cast members are going to be involved? Well, not so in this case, because Arnold Schwarzenegger is saying that he will be playing the older version of the T-800, with another actor playing the young version. We also heard this week that Dayo Okeniyi (The Spectacular Now, The Hunger Games) has been cast as the son of Miles Dyson, one of the Cyberdyne scientists responsible for creating Skynet. Miles Dyson was played by Joe Morton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Dayo Okeniyi joins Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, and Jason Clarke. Terminator: Genesis, directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones), is scheduled for release on July 1, 2015.


#7 THIS WEEK IN HOUSE OF CARDS PART 2: COREY STOLL JOINS ANT-MAN

The way that Marvel Studios carefully times (or seems to do, anyway) their casting announcements so that there's one nearly every week, the Weekly Ketchup is challenged to parse out how often we give them "Top Story" status. This week, you know, maybe the "mystery character" in question is someone awesome, and history will question why it's not the top story, but hey, Marvel can't have it every single time. Just can't. Anyway, the mystery role in question is in Ant-Man, which will launch Marvel's Phase 3 when it's released next summer on July 17, 2015. Corey Stoll (of House of Cards and Law & Order: LA) is in talks to join the already announced Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas (who both play the lead character... sort of), and Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Patrick Wilson. Ant-Man will be directed by fan favorite Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) from a script he cowrote with Joe Cornish.


THE FULL DISCLOSURE GREY ZONE -- GREG DEAN SCHMITZ WAS ONE OF THE BEARD-OS AND BADASSES

We swear, we like never do this, but this week, we're going to cover a movie that, in the spirit of full disclosure, can't be assigned any category we usually use. The reason for this is because the recently announced documentary Beard-Os and Badasses will cover the early years of online film journalism. Debut directors Geoff Todd and H. Perry Horton will be interviewing 50 to 75 different people, with focus on Patrick Sauriol (Corona's Coming Attractions), Harry Knowles (Ain't It Cool News), Garth Franklin (Dark Horizons), Greg Dean Schmitz (Upcomingmovies.com), and others who were involved in the late 1990s explosion of online film journalism. The movie will shine a light on how "a revolution was launched that changed the entire landscape of American film journalism and criticism."

Rotten Idea of the Week

#1 JENNIFER JASON LEIGH JOINS THE LATEST AMITYVILLE HORROR REBOOT

Almost a decade after the most recent reboot (the one in 2005 with Ryan Reynolds), another Amityville horror movie is being prepped for a release on January 2, 2015. This one will feature Jennifer Jason Leigh, Disney Channel favorite Bella Thorne, and Shameless costar Cameron Monaghan. Jennifer Jason Leigh will play a single mother who moves into the creepy (and infamous) house with her three kids. This new Amityville horror movie will be directed by Franck Khalfoun, whose RT Tomatometer makes this the week's Rotten Idea. Well, here's some good news to finish the column: Tyler Labine said this week that he and Alan Tudyk have been notified that a sequel to Tucker and Dale Vs Evil is currently in development.

Top news:

FINALLY! This sequel to a fantastic film is happening! I hope Neville Page returns as the creature designer for this installment. Also, Fox should title is "Paradise".

Fresh:

1. Meh. I'm not so stoked for this re-adaption since I didn't actually think Scarface needed another adaption, but oh well. I might check it out if it looks interesting as it continued to develop.

2. I loved the first one, but have yet to see the sequel. Not much to comment on this.

3. Yawnville.

4. I'm sorry, but even with Dinkley & Columbus being involved I have NO interest in this. Anything with Adam Sandler (primary reason) in it & Happy Madison distributing it is horse shit baking in an oven alongside 2 week old garbage terrible. And that's the nicest way I can put it.

5. More Yawnville.

6. OMG NOW I'm going to watch this, even if the ideas sound like shit as the continue to come in. But since THE man who made the first 3 Terminators epic is in it I'm hyped!

7. Corey Stoll is fucking sexy, & one great actor. He's the only reason I sat through the Law & Order series he was in (I'm addicted to SVU much better), & now that he's in Ant-Man I have a reason to actually be excited for it!

8. ...what?

Rotten:

1. The Amittyville Horror movies have all been crap. Now that I know that "star" Zendeya from that whore-promoting show Shake it Up from that terrible network is in it this is a guaranteed shitfest. Enough said..

I gotta know what you saw in Prometheus. The sequel alone is pretty much admitting its a typical hollywood blockbuster. "what's this? The only likable Character was David the android!? ALL RIGHT, FOR THE SEQUEL MORE DAVID THE ANDROIDS!!" pfffft.

This person knows who Neville Page is, so I'm going to guess he or she probably puts a little extra stock in a film's visual appearance and automatically gave Prometheus a few brownie points for being extremely attractive and well designed. I watched it like three times despite thinking the story was a mess, just because it's a great looking film.

I'm amazed how some people think I automatically must give films points for being visually crafty. In that case i must give The Last Airbender top notch points for being that fantastic in visuals.

And the story, while intentionally had plotholes in it, is a neat thing to sit through that actually makes one think. Frankly the questions it leaves one asking only makes one think more.

I don't think it makes anybody think. I think it wants to make people think but doesn't. "Our creators are Aliens from Space!" so? If you are indifferent to why you exist the movie falls apart in the credit sequence! Then it just constantly has these "Brilliant pioneers" say the stupidest Shit!

We found? 5 Circles! in multiple caves with tallish looking Men pointing at them.. THIS PROVES EVERYTHING! No! No It doesn't! Why are all these different cultures Drawing the aliens and Galaxy the same way. IF it was Engineers that left this "amazing" message. Why is it so stupid? Why is an intergalactic creator of all life leaving a 2 year olds drawing on Multiple Cave walls!?

Why Robot Medical devices in the future Sexist!? This med device can only operate on Men!!! Seriously? How stupid is that!? ALso if it only recognizes Men why didn't it see her Uterus as an alien contaminant in her body?

Why is Sci-Fi so dumb now is the question I want answered after leaving that film.

I did find it visually stunning though.

Well I guess it's just a matter of opinion. I had some problems with the film but I also felt a couple moments of awe....by the way the med pod was there for the old man..it wasn't sexist...it was supposed to give you the idea that he was still alive...duh...why else would his daughter have it...maybe you should've watched a bit closer instead attacking the films intelligence..we see where yours rates.

The whole "our creators are aliens from outerspace" makes a lot more sense & is frankly a lot more interesting than what some idiot with an outdated book will tell you. In that same case that idea started the theory that Jesus Christ was an engineer who failed his mission, which is why those Engineers wanted the human race dead.

And the machine was for men only because of that dying old man. I had no idea that machines were able to be sexist.

Seriously, both of you thought the WEYLAND IS ALIVE mystery justified the horrible dialogue? Oh, the "It's only for Men" explanation is to clue us in on Weyland being on this ship. Did this matter to the plot? no? Did Welyand matter? well sure, he funded the mission so he could live forever. We just saw the idiot Scientists bring a severed head back to life but hey, why invest in that technology when you can have an Alien prequel (thats not an alien Prequel) right Weyland?

Secondly, we found a rock with a poorly drawn cave painting is far less convincing then a records that span across generations proclaiming the existence of a creator God. I can never get over stupid SCI FI. A rock? You have a picture on a Rock.. Wow.. Can we please have one character who isn't a moron in the SCI FI MOVIE.

Okay okay, being way to harsh. Like I said, it was beautiful and I really did like Dave the Android or at least the performance of Michael Fassabender. That short film on David to promote the film was fantastic. Have you seen it?

Well, look at you, Gregory. Since you don't appear to have a beard, I'll assume you're a badass (unlike Harry Knowles).

The end credits of The Other Guys gives me hope that Adam McKay is capable of adapting The Big Short faithfully.

I'll await further news on Prometheus and Scarface with trepidation.

The Amityville movie shouldn't count as a reboot if they're removing the central character - the father. Just call it a lame cash-in like any of its other sequels (or other Warren projects, ye Conjuring fans fall for).

Excited for "Prometheus 2" I know the first movie was a hate it or love it affair, which I'm the latter.

Scarface doesn't need a "new version." There was a classic film and a rare remake which got most of the things right in translation. I just keep thinking of the new trailer with Push It To The Limit in the background.

Terminator: Genesis? No thanks. Like so many sci-fi franchises it had the classic film, a worthy follow up, and self-parody attempts after that.

Just to crush everyone's dreams...Prometheus 2 is being rewritten by the guy who wrote the Green Lantern. Ha! Yet another shitty film from Ridley Scott. Dude's on a hot streak of terrible films. Hasn't made a good film in what? 13 years? Maybe more?

Finally, some interesting stuff!
Fresh:
1. It could work, I mean, the first movie was a classic, but it depends.
2. I think Ice Cube should at least do the fourth Friday movie with Chris Tucker before he does another Barbershop.
3. Eh, Spacey is great on House of Cards, but I'm not sure about this.
4. I got to admit, even though Happy Madison team is working on it, the idea sounds pretty cool. Maybe they'll make it like a live-action Wreck-It Ralph. I'm a sucker for classic video game characters on the big screen.
5. I'd rather see Adam McKey make more comedies than dramas. I hated Jay Roach when he did Recount, I could barley believe it was the very guy who did Austin Powers/Meet the Parents who directed such a dramatic picture.
6. Great! Finally a Terminator movie worth looking forward to!
7. Awesome! Ant-Man's casting keeps getting better and better!
8. No wonder you don't do something like that ever. I'm still confused about it.
Rotten:
1. God, Amityville needs to end. Two reboots? Seriously, who keeps green-lighting those movies!
