This week, Hollywood really took some time off from making announcements in the days in between Christmas and New Year's. So, it's time for the obligatory Yearly Ketchup; twelve major stories that broke this year, one for each month. This doesn't necessarily cover all of the big stories that broke this year, as some months were bigger than others. An emphasis was made in this particular list to focus on either new projects, or ones that got new life after years of development. And finally, in addition to the potential big blockbuster type movies, I made room for the new projects for a couple of major directors, as well as a couple of projects that some will definitely think are "Rotten Ideas." These are the news stories that made the Weekly Ketchup all the more fun to follow along with each month.
This Week's Ketchup includes new projects for some famous directors (Peter Jackson, David Cronenberg), new details about X-Men: First Class, James Bond 23 and Machete, news of a Marvin the Martian movie, and a 1980s teen remake that Taylor Lautner might star in.
This Week's Ketchup includes director news for X-Men: First Class, remake news for The Brood, The Borrowers and The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and new roles for Leonardo DiCaprio, Mel Gibson, Laurence Fishburne, Tina Fey and Steve Carell.
This week's Ketchup includes a remake of Fantastic Planet, a crazy Spider-Man 4 rumor, new roles for Natalie Portman, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston and yet more movies riding the coattails of The Twilight Saga.
This week's Ketchup include news of plans to remake The Amityville Horror (again) and Disney's The Black Hole, a new project for acclaimed director Paul Thomas Anderson and new roles for Johnny Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gwyneth Paltrow and one of the stars of The Twilight Saga: New Moon.
Hollywood has mostly taken the week off for Thanksgiving, so that they can all enjoy their vegan turduckens down by the pool, no doubt. Nature abhors a vacuum however (even Hollywood follows MOST of the laws of physics), and so even in a light week there's still news to report, such as franchise news for Zombieland, Kull and The Howling, and casting news for The A-Team, UFO and Thor.
This week's Ketchup includes casting news and rumors for Thor, Spider-Man 4, The Hobbit and Guardians of Ga'hoole, new sequels in the Jackass and Underworld franchises and potential new movies for Brad Pitt and Eddie Murphy.
This week's Ketchup includes new movies for the directors of Moon and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, as well as casting news for Jake Gyllenhaal, Jamie Foxx and two of the stars of The Hangover.
#1 WILL THE BLACK CAT JINX PETER PARKER IN SPIDER-MAN 4?
The comic book site Mania.com is reporting that director Sam Raimi is currently casting for Spider-Man 4, and this early information gives us new insight into a possible new character.
This Week's Ketchup includes news about movies based upon Micronauts, Arabian Nights and The Berenstain Bears, as well as casting news for Sir Anthony Hopkins, Johnny Depp, George Clooney and Owen Wilson; and a new movie for the director of Slumdog Millionaire.
#1 J.J. ABRAMS WANTS TO PLAY WITH YOUR OLD MICRONAUTS TOYS
Hot off the success of his reimagining of Star Trek, J.J. Abrams is in negotiations to produce a movie based upon the popular 1970s-1980s Japanese toy franchise Micronauts, which was also a long-running Marvel Comics series. Micronauts was a series of interchangeable science fiction heroes, robots and vehicles (sort of imagine a cross between action figures and LEGO) that collectively told the story of alien warriors in the grip of an intergalactic war. The best part was that they have crashed on the strange world of Earth where they find themselves just the size of little toys. Among the most popular Micronauts figures were Biotron, Microtron, Acroyear and Baron Karza.
This week's Ketchup includes news of sequels for Paranormal Activity, Mad Max, and Men in Black franchises, as well as casting news for Sir Anthony Hopkins, Matt Damon, Keira Knightley, Tom Cruise, and Adam Sandler.
This Week's Ketchup includes casting rumors for Green Lantern and Thor, movie plans for two hit Broadway plays (Miss Saigon and Rock of Ages) and new roles for Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kirsten Dunst. On top of that, we've got the usual roundup of Rotten Ideas, which this week include a possibly not-quite-so-rotten Disney adaptation of a retro-futuristic themed novel, a sequel to the urban dance movie Stomp the Yard, a tweenier repurposing of Mel Gibson's What Women Want from the female perspective, and the most Rotten of all, a new movie entitled Monster Squad that not only has nothing to do with the 80s fan favorite, but is also brought to us by various people involved with Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigalo and Wild Hogs.
This week's Ketchup includes the expected franchise reboots - both involving espionage types Jack Ryan and Matt Helm - potentially starring Chris Pine and Bradley Cooper, as well as new projects for Will Ferrell (in a serious role, no less), Matthew McConaughey (as an attorney - wait, wasn't that A Time to Kill?), and Clive Owen (being awesome as usual). On the Rotten end of things, just wait until you find out what Hollywood (namely Roland Emmerich and 20th Century Fox) wants to do with Moses and William Shakespeare - suffice it to say they might very well be turning in their graves.
This week's Ketchup includes new movies for Leonardo DiCaprio and Hugh Jackman, sequel news for Kill Bill and Transformers, two CGI animated movies about the weird twists and turns of evolution and a surprising amount of news of English language remakes of foreign movies most of us didn't see (and one that a lot of us did, and loved).

This Week's Ketchup had so many rotten ideas, that Greg couldn't settle on just one. So we're breaking this week's top ten stories into the "Fresh Developments" and their opposite number, the "Rotten Ideas of the Week". The Fresh Ideas include new projects for the directors of The Wrestler and Ice Age, as well as Marvel-ous news for Thor and X-Men.
