-In the same interview, the head of Legendary had this to say about Pacific Rim 2:

I was literally just with Guillermo on the set of Crimson Peak*. We talk about it and have some pretty great ideas. If they come to fruition and we get a great script, then we’re open to it. Fans seem pretty passionate about it and working with Guillermo. So, we’re open to it.

I’ve heard a lot of contradicting things about the sequel. I saw a report that Guillermo Del Toro had already written it a year or two ago, but from that quote that appears not to be the case. We’ll see.

*I am so excited about Crimson Peak. Tom Hiddleston, Doug Jones, Jim Beaver and Jessica Chastain in a scary GDT film. Yess.

Sam Raimi wants to adapt popular video game The Last of Us into a movie. I’m not familiar with the game, but this could be interesting if done right. Sam Raimi does horror well, but considering how much of a disaster Spider-Man 3 was, I’m not sure. (empire online)

Idris Elba cast in “live action” remake of The Jungle Book. I say live action with quotation marks because while it is going to technically be live action, a lot of the animals will of course be CGI. (/film)

Heroes to return in 2015

Break out the Wendy & Lisa, Heroes is coming back. Yes, really. During the Olympics last Saturday NBC showed the above teaser with the Heroes logo and “Heroes Reborn” on the bottom. I happened to be watching and immediately googled it, but nothing came up until a few minutes later on Variety (and then it was everywhere, you’ve probably seen it somewhere already). Thankfully, it will be the original creator working on the new series:

Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept.

I really liked Heroes, season 1 and maybe 2 are included in my all time favorites. However, I do agree that it really went downhill after the second season (during the second season?). I agree with this person, who says that it is a good idea to revive Heroes:

What’s been forgotten is how exciting Heroes was in that first year, and how ahead of its time the series was—especially if you consider the rash of superhero concepts currently being developed for the small screen in the wake of Marvel Studios’ dominance at the box office. Reviving Heroes make a lot of sense for NBC beyond any nostalgia element, if only because it’s a superhero franchise that mainstream audiences are familiar with that NBC already owns outright. Why not try to bring it back right now?

The new stuff is going to be a 13-episode miniseries also combined with a digital series. It will feature new characters but, as NBC says, “we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
