While doing press for his latest, upcoming film Sicario, director Denis Villeneuve very recently revealed that principal photography on the Blade Runner sequel will begin next summer, although he wouldn’t divulge any specific plot details quite yet. During an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival, the filmmaker revealed that his follow-up will answer the question fans have had for decades: is Rick Deckard ( Harrison Ford ) in fact a “Replicant”? Here’s what he had to say on the subject . .

“Now that I am on the other side of the fence I cannot answer that. The thing I must say is that I love a good mystery. I love shadows. I love doubts. I would just want to say to the fans that we will take care of that mystery. I will take care of it.”

The director recently revealed that he was incredibly hesitant to take on this project, which was written by original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. He also said that this sci-fi sequel will be “autonomous” to the original, while still maintaining some connection to the sci-fi classic.

While principal photography will begin next summer, the exact locations have not been determined yet. The project still doesn’t have a release date set at this time, but will most likely hit theaters in 2017, which would coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original. It isn’t exactly known what time period this movie will be set in, but now that a production schedule is in place, hopefully we’ll start learning more details about the anticipated project . . .

Warner Studio’s Untitled Blade Runner Project comes to theaters across the country in 2017.

Muppets-transparent_space

Last month, it was widely reported that Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy had called it quits. They made the break public, releasing a statement to the press just as their new show “The Muppets” is set to debut this fall. The new series, which is described as a fresh take on The Office, will show the lives of these various Muppet animals and creatures. And as expected, we’ll be getting a bird’s-eye view into the dating woes and romantic relationships of everyone’s favorite Pig and Frog . .

ABC has leaked early photos of Kermy’s new fling. Her name is Denise. And to be honest, she’s a real pig. Kermit and Miss Piggy have been together for over four decades. Though their split was amicable, it didn’t take long for the green man to start hitting the field. Kermy is rumored to be dating an ABC employee he met on the set of his new series. She is apparently the head of marketing, making her a co-worker of sorts. Check out the latest press release from Kermit to his fans.

While Kermit getting a new girlfriend might not have been such a big deal, it certainly has many fans a little bothered here and there. With his ex of forty years always just a few yards away from him, it’s bound to blow-up in his face at some future point in the series. With everything being documented, you can guarantee that fans will get to see all of the most awkward moments, warts and all . .

HEADER - Trasnsparentspace bar

It’s now being reported that star Tom Cruise is set to ramp-up yet another of his successful franchise vehicles from Paramount Pictures in the form of the follow-up to 2012’s action / thriller “Jack Reacher”. No title has been officially released as of yet, but the upcoming film is said to be on the fast track by the studio for an October release next fall . .

Jack Reacher 2 reteams the mega-star with Oscar-winner Edward Zwick, who last directed Cruise in the critically acclaimed, “The Last Samurai” over a decade ago. Also joining the cast is Agent Maria Hill herself, Cobie Smulders, in what has been touted as a “more grounded” outing for the eponymous ex-military investigator.

The upcoming sequel is reported to be based on “Never Go Back” – the 18th Jack Reacher novel written by Lee Child. Jack Reacher 2 finds the investigator caught up in a mystery involving a commanding officer at a Virginia army base ( Smulders ), and a teenager named Samantha, who might, in fact, be Jack Reacher’s daughter. The first Jack Reacher was a mystery / action / thriller involving a convoluted conspiracy, but the sequel is said to be more comparatively straight-forward, with its focus more on Reacher’s relationships with Susan and Samantha.

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment’s untitled Jack Reacher Sequel is officially set to arrive in theaters on October 21, 2016 . .
