The elongated bullet-time-like wait is over. Lana and Andy Wachowski are planning a return to making awesome sci-fi action films. The siblings have set up Jupiter Ascending at Warner Bros.. Plot elements are being kept under wraps but we do know this is an original project from the Wachowskis and they are now discussing which A-list star to will lead the cast.

Lord only knows what film technology they’ll invent next. They’ve already raised the bar on the genre pretty high with the crazy sequences they composed in The Matrix and Speed Racer. Whatever they end up bringing to the table will have to be fresh and inventive. And, most importantly, easily copied in future Scary Movie films. (Deadline)

Hollywood Is Quite Taken With Science-Fiction Lately http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hollywood-is-quite-taken-with-science-fiction-lately/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hollywood-is-quite-taken-with-science-fiction-lately/#comments Thu, 17 Mar 2011 20:13:23 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202213 Roger Ebert's mortal enemy 'Battle: Los Angeles' has screenwriters everywhere adding lasers to their specs.

Thanks to Battle: Los Angelesmelting the face of the box office this past weekend, studios are falling all over themselves to pick up scripts with laser noises appearing in the scene description.

A few sci-fi pitches were picked up on Monday, and now there’s word that two more fictional scientific stories have been bought. Fox ignored the existence of Jurassic Park III and went ahead and bought a pitch from Jurassic Park III writer Peter Buchman. Meanwhile, Paramount has bought a pitch from Apollo 18‘s Brian Miller. There are no details available about either. So don’t even try to copy them.

I’m all for more science-fiction stories as long as they are good. Maybe we should run them by Roger Ebert so he doesn’t go house again like he did with his Battle: Los Angeles review. Otherwise, I’m concerned the studios are setting themselves up for failure by jumping on the wrong trend. Ask yourself, was the real star of Battle: Los Angeles the special effects or Aaron Eckhart’s chin crater? (via /Film)
