Warner Bros. Pictures send word that the ‘Magic Mike’ sequel (rumored to be titled Magic Mike XXL) is penciled in for a July 3rd, 2015 release date. Greg Jacobs, longtime assistant director to the original’s Steven Soderbergh, will direct. Just last month Joe Mangianello said that the film would shoot in the fall, “…it’s gonna happen this fall. I think they’re going to announce it soon. It’s crazy. I didn’t think that would be my first franchise. I never thought that would ever be the direction of my career. But that said, it’s just proof that I don’t know best, all the time. It was the most fun I’ve ever had, and I can’t wait to get back in and mix it up with those guys.”
The original movie took in $167 million worldwide, against a budget of just $7 million. The likes of Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer, Joe Mangianello, Olivia Munn, Riley Keough, Cody Horn and Adam Rodriguez starred. Expect word on the story and cast for the film shortly.
THR bring word that 20th Century Fox has picked up ‘Superior,’ the comic book series written by Mark Millar and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu, for an adaptation to be produced by Matthew Vaughn. The source material centers on a popular and athletic 12-year-old boy who loses his social life when he is stricken by multiple sclerosis. One night, an alien monkey grants the boy one wish and he chooses to become his favorite superhero, a Superman-like character named Superior. After relishing his new life as a hero, the boy discovers that the monkey is actually a demon from Hell and he must sell his soul if he is to remain the powerful hero – or return to his original body.
The ‘Superior’ comic was published between 2010 and 2012 via Icon Comics, a creator-owned imprint from Marvel. A search for a writer to adapt the material will now begin. Mark Millar is the co-creator and writer of a number of comics that have received the feature film adaptation treatment, such as ‘Kick-Ass,’ ‘Kick-Ass 2,’ and Wanted.’ He also has comics ‘Starlight,’ ‘Nemesis’ and ‘Kindergarten Heroes’ set up at Fox and has ‘The Secret Service,’ an action thriller based on the Millar comic (drawn by Dave Gibbons), that will release in October this year.
From Total Film comes this new still from Lana and Andy Wachowski’s ‘Jupiter Ascending,’ showcasing Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum. Co-starring the likes of Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, Tuppence Middleton, Doona Bae, James D’Arcy and Tim Pigott-Smith, the film opens on July 18th.
From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, ‘Jupiter Ascending’ tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along — her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.

Lionsgate has debuted this new promo image for ‘The Expendables 3,’ which features Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Sylvester Stallone, director Patrick Hughes, Wesley Snipes, Randy Couture, and Jason Statham. Opening in cinemas on August 15th, the film also stars Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Antonio Banderas, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Kellan Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell and Kelsey Grammar.
In ‘The Expendables 3,’ Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney. Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables — but Barney has other plans. Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.

The Weiss family is the archetypical Hollywood dynasty: father Sanford is an analyst and coach, who has made a fortune with his self-help manuals; mother Christina mostly looks after the career of their son Benjie, 13, a child star.
Speaking to Digital Spy on the promotional rounds for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2,’ Hans Zimmer confirmed that he’s been asked him to return for the follow-up to ‘Man of Steel,’ the tentatively titled ‘Batman vs. Superman.’ He’ll reportedly begin working on it once he completes the score for Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar.’ “We’ve already had a couple of chats, and once I finish the movie that I shall not talk about I will probably head over to where Zack is shooting his movie and just hang out a bit and see if we can come up with any ideas.”
Given that Hans Zimmer scored Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, the Grammy and Academy Award winning composer also reiterated his concern over simply repeating Batman’s theme from those movies, and touched on the pressures of coming up with something fresh for this new take on the Caped Crusader. “That’s my problem, that’s my dilemma. I don’t want to betray, if that’s the right word, the Dark Knight movies. That was Christian [Bale], it was Christian’s role. It’s not just that it was nine years of our lives, so you want to stay honest and honourable to that period. So it’s really about, ‘Is there something else I can find that I haven’t tapped into?’ Which I don’t know until I sit down with Zack.”
