The week after Memorial Day Monday is traditionally a little slow for movie development news, and 2014 was not much different. Our biggest story (Marvel's Ant-Man and its lack of a director) actually broke out late last week, for example. Other movies addressed down below include Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight, biopics for athletes Joe Namath and Jesse Owens, and remakes of Cliffhanger and Stargate.
This week's Ketchup covered a week with both Cannes news and pre-Memorial Day blockbuster planning. Included in the mix were Godzilla 2 (and 3), the first Star Wars spinoff movie (whatever that is), prequels for both Harry Potter and The Shining, and the toy adaptations Ninjago and Monster High.
This week's Ketchup comes to you during the Cannes Film Festival, which means we were deluged with lots of announcements from the film market there.

The mix also includes new roles for Michael Fassbender, Aaron Paul, and Daniel Radcliffe; and new projects for directors Kathryn Bigelow, Derek Cianfrance, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Ridley Scott.
This week's Ketchup includes movie development news stories about The Flintstones, the 1990s kids show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Stephen King's The Stand, and reboots/remakes of Lethal Weapon and Private Benjamin. There's also new roles for Chris Hemsworth, Angelina Jolie (and Brad Pitt), Liam Neeson, and Channing Tatum.
This week's Ketchup comes to you on the release date of a big superhero movie, and with all of that buzz, we also had a week of big, Big, BIG movie development stories concerning Star Wars Episode VII, directors Steven Spielberg and Baz Luhrmann, and comic book properties Justice League, The Sinister Six, and The Fantastic Four.

This week's Ketchup may be covering the last seven days and the first day of April, but there are no April Fools Jokes here. Actually, what we will find are a surprising number of movie development news stories involving Academy Award winners like Amy Adams, Mel Gibson, Brad Pitt, and Meryl Streep.
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?
In the same week when much of the online news buzz was about March Madness and missing Malaysians, movies mustered much attention as well. Included in this week's Ketchup are news stories about upcoming sequels like Cars 3, The Fantastic Four 2, Ghostbusters 3, The Incredibles 2, Jurassic World, and The Wolverine 2.
The Weekly Ketchup celebrates Pi Day by... mentioning it here and then never again. That's because the rest of the column is devoted so thoroughly to discussing the merits (or lack thereof) of movies like Captain America 3, the Fletch and Peter Pan reboots, the remakes of Explorers and Something Wicked This Way Comes, and other new roles for Kevin Hart, Ed Helms, and Guy Pearce.
This week's Ketchup covers a sort of slow news cycle, post Academy Awards. The stories that did break include a few potential blockbusters for Sony Pictures, including a movie version of the video game The Last of Us, and a "gritty" reboot of Zorro. There's also a T. Rex movie, giant insects, and a possible remake of West Side Story.
This week's Ketchup is chock full of almost 10 varieties of sequels, including follow ups to such movies as We're the Millers and (maybe) Space Jam, threequels in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man 3 and Ghostbusters 3, and even a second Steve Jobs biopic.

We're now halfway into January, but Hollywood had another slow news week, possibly because so many movie industry types were preparing for their annual skiing vac... err, make that "the wonderful celebration of independent filmmaking known as the Sundance Film Festival." Movies that made the cut this week include Marvel's Ant-Man and Doctor Strange, and Magic: The Gathering.
