Disney’s Tron #3 Sequel Canceled!

HEADER - Trasnsparent

In case some were not aware, it has been confirmed by Walt Disney Pictures that their upcoming Scifi sequel, “Tron 3” has now officially been canceled by the studio. This shocking announcement comes on the cusp of it’s post production moving forward as the movie was said too be on the fast-track by the studio for an upcoming 2017 release date. Word is that the fledgling project was scrapped after Tommorrowland failed to bring the response & acclaim the studio was looking for at the box office and with it’s fans . .

Disney Pictures being the reactive and by-the-number’s studio they are, a sequel to “Tron: Legacy” was never really a sure-fire bet to begin with. The movie landed soft in theaters in 2010, and while it did eventually gross $400 million worldwide, the film cost near $200 million to make. Take in normal theater cost and other normal expenses and that’s not a very good sign that a follow up film will indeed happen.

Also the film’s original star Garrett Hedlund hasn’t really become that much of a major Hollywood presence in the ensuing five years since the movie’s release, as his original casting by the studio was an investment in his upcoming stardom.

While ‘Tron: Legacy’ was decently received and has its fans, is the general moviegoing public dying for a sequel? That’s certainly a very debatable question . .

The Muppet Show Returns . . . . Again!

Muppets-transparent_space

It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. And it’s time for another round of The Muppet Show. The Muppets will officially return to prime time with a contemporary, documentary-style show that, for the first time ever, will explore the Muppets’ personal lives and relationships, both at home and at work as well . . .

ABC describes the newer take as a more adult Muppet show, for kids of all ages. The recent pilot presentation, as it’s been told through the media, received a standing ovation when it screened for ABC executives a couple weeks ago. Bill Prady and Bob Kushell are co-writers and executive producers alongside Randall Einhorn and Bill Barretta.

Now doubt this is Disney’s reaction to the big success of the most recent Muppet movies ( 2011’s “The Muppets” & 2014 “Muppets: Most Wanted” ) at the box office. And since the mouse house own ABC as most already know, so it was only a matter of time until we see the beloved characters on the small screen once again.

ABC’s “The Muppet Show” comes to television nationwide next fall. No exact date or schedule has been given at this time. Well keep you posted as more comes in on this story . .

Disney Confirms New Indiana Jones Film In The Works!

HEADER - Trasnsparent

As part of their June Star Wars cover story, Vanity Fair had a chance to speak with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy about Star Wars: The Force Awakens and got her to confirm that in fact a new Indiana Jones movie is in the works to relaunch the franchise, although it’s not something that will happen in the immediate future . . .

“In buying the company, Disney also got rights to less-storied Lucasfilm properties, among them Willow and Radioland Murders. A bigger prize is the Indiana Jones franchise” Kennedy then confirmed rumors that another Indy movie, . . .”Will one day be made inside this company. When it will happen, I’m not quite sure. We haven’t started working on a script yet, but we are talking about it.’”

Kennedy was the executive producer on all four of director Steven Spielberg’s previous Indy films, so one can expect that a relaunch of the franchise is definitely going to be in the cards at some point. It’s been rumored for months that Chris Pratt would eventually don the fedora, but we might not hear anything more about that until Lucasfilm has a script and director in place. Well keep you posted as more comes in . .

Director Reveals Two Superheroes That Were Cut From Sequel!

HEADER - Trasnsparent

Well it seems Marvel Studio’s former man-with-a-plan let the cat out of the bag recently in a candid interview to Empire Magazine, as he let rapid Marvel fans know that originally there were even more superheroes on the roster for his latest blockbuster sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron in theaters now . . .

The director goes on to too talk about how the original idea for the big end credits scene, as well as the movie was much different and featured, as you might have you guessed it . . . . . Spider-Man and Captain Marvel. The word is that Whedon originally wanted Captain Marvel to actually be featured in the sequel and Spider-Man to appear as a new Avenger in the end credits sequence. He’s a brief summary from the interview . .

“I would have put both Spider-Man and Captain Marvel in the movie, but neither of the deals were made final at that time. And then later the Marvel guys were like, ‘We’re making a Captain Marvel movie now and we’ve also got ‘Spider-Man’ as a property now too,’ and I’m like, . . . ‘I’ve already locked my film down you F******! Thanks for nothing.”

Of course, it’s not the directors fault as those heroes were not available at that time & really are still being worked on by the studio. So one cannot blame Whedon for wanting those beloved heroes on his last big screen outing with Marvel. The studio doesn’t seem to move an inch on it’s characters unless final ink has been shed. As always, well certainly keep you movie-buff’s posted on any future stories  . . .
