Are you ready for the second biggest party of all time? Project X’s performance at the box office this past weekend has ensured that a sequel is in the works. Though it didn’t make a lot of money by Will Smith needs an 11-story motor-home standards, it did do pretty well for a found footage film.

It’s unknown whether or not the film would revolve around the original trio of nerds or if producers Todd Phillips and Joel Silver will find brand new people we’ve never seen before in our lives. Co-writer Michael Bacall is already at work for a treatment on the sequel which likely reads like so… “Guys drink beer… hot girls kiss one another on neck… lasers… Skrillex…” Sounds like a go picture to me. (THR)

Sarah Shahi To Play Stallone’s Very Hot Daughter http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sarah-shahi-to-play-stallones-very-hot-daughter/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/sarah-shahi-to-play-stallones-very-hot-daughter/#comments Tue, 21 Jun 2011 16:04:09 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=217064 She got her looks from her mom.

Sylvester Stallone is about to become a very proud papa. Sarah Shahi is joining one of his upcoming action flicks. Based on the graphic novel A Bullet To The Head and directed by Walter Hill, the story stars Stallone as an older New Orleans hitman who teams up with a young NYC cop to avenge the murders of both of their partners.

Shahi had better be careful. If Stallone movies have taught me anything, it’s that the bad guys always come after what he loves the most. Which means it’s likely we’ll see Shahi and Stallone outrun an explosion. Preferably after she’s gotten out of the shower. And in slow-motion. Walter Hill, we are counting on you. (Variety)

That ‘Bullet To The Head’ Movie Just Got A Lot Kangier http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bullet-to-the-head-movie-just-got-a-lot-kangier/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/that-bullet-to-the-head-movie-just-got-a-lot-kangier/#comments Sat, 11 Jun 2011 16:47:19 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=215810 Sweet, Kangy goodness.

Sung Kang, who you might know as one of the stars of Fast Five, is blowing up right now, and in a way that few if any Asian stars have been able to do here in the States. He’s apparently replacing Tom Jane in the untitled Sylvester Stallone thriller that used to be called Headshot (based on the comic Bullet to the Head), where he will be an even younger counterpart to the aged Stallone (I’m sure he’ll be referred to as “the aged Stallone” in all the press materials).

This is apparently happening due to a mandate from producer Joel Silver casting “mixed race” leads in his pictures. It will be cool to see a charismatic star like Kang in an action movie where he won’t be doing any martial arts. Or they’ll just add a bunch of martial arts to the movie. Either way, progress!

Yeah, Sylvester Stallone is reuniting with the Expendables crew for a part 2, but Jason Statham and Jet Li aren’t the only guys Rocky will be re-teaming with in the near future. He’s now set to partner-up with his Demolition Man producer Joel Silver. Though Silver will probably not be joining in for any on-screen kill fests.

Stallone Stabs At Banter For A Change In New 'Expendables' Trailer

Silver is producing a new Stallone hitman action movie under his Dark Castle Entertainment banner. Stallone plays an older New Orleans hitman who teams up with a young NYC cop to get some vengeance. Badda-bing badda-whoa, those two types are way different. However, vengeance supersedes all cultural differences and unites us all… as people.

The story is based on the graphic novel Bullet to the Head, written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson. Walter Hill is attached to direct.

Barbra Streisand To Fulfill All Your Fantasies In Stripper Musical ‘Gypsy’? http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/barbra-streisand-to-fulfill-all-your-fantasies-in-stripper-musical-gypsy/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/barbra-streisand-to-fulfill-all-your-fantasies-in-stripper-musical-gypsy/#comments Tue, 22 Mar 2011 01:27:09 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202859 Apparently Universal is mounting a version of the famous musical with Streisand as the awful stage mom who loudly sings "Everything's Coming Up Roses."

When you think sexy, you think Barbra Streisand. They go together like peanut butter and jelly, or massive headaches and Barbra Streisand. So it’s no surprise that she might star in a new big screen adaptation of the famous musical Gypsy. It’s about the life story of famou burlesque dancer Gypsy Rose Lee, before the term was co-opted and destroyed by Cher.

Though Gypsy writer Arthur Laurents recently said he won’t allow another film version to go forward, cause the last one in 1962 took a big dump on his story, reports say otherwise. Apparently Universal is mounting a new version with Streisand as the awful stage mom who sings “Everything’s Coming Up Roses,” along with Joel Silver as producer. The purported deal gives Laurents and lyricist Stephen Sondheim a big say in casting, as well as deciding on a screenwriter and director. (The Playlist)

Warner Bros. Starting ‘World War X’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warner-bros-starting-world-war-x/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/warner-bros-starting-world-war-x/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 World War IV is barely underway, but Warner Bros. just can’t help itself from jumping the gun. The studio is already planning the launch of World War X, a film "centered on a man recruited by a team of government agents to stop a terrorist from the future who is using time travel to reshape history." As my colleague Wookie Johnson pointed out, this film smells an awful lot like Time Cop, which actually smells a lot like a Belgian hooker's dirty panties, which smells a lot like overused cologne. I think there’s a Van Damme joke in there somewhere. (Coming Soon)
