The Matrix Reloaded: Producer, Joel Silver recently talked to Zap2It about the Matrix sequels:

"I think we won't even have to advertise the third film, we'll just tell people the date, and they'll come, the story is so fantastic."

"You're not going to want to wait for the next movie, so we want to release them as close as we can together," says Silver. "The cliffhanger is so substantial you will want to see it soon, and we're aware of that."

"The boys (the Wachowski's) wanted to release both of them in the same summer, but we won't have them both ready," Silver explains. "So, we'll have one in May and the next a few months later."

xXx 2: Rob Cohen recently talked to the UK's Yahoo Movies about his sequel plans for xXx:

"I have two scripts in development right now, One takes place in South East Asia and involves the Malaka Straits pirates and other things that go on from there. The other takes place in Washington DC, where I think our most colorful character will go up against all the gray men in Washington. And I can see mountain-biking sequences on the Capitol dome, things like that where, in a domestic context opposed to an exotic context, Xander gets to shakeup, well, George Bush and all that he represents."

Jurassic Park 4:The Force.net has transcribed an article from Scottish soundtrack magazine Movie Music Now (issue #11) which included an interview with one of the world's most renowned composers, John Williams. In the interview, Williams let the cat out of the bag that none other then Steven Speilberg himself asked him to consider scoring the fourth Jurassic Park film:

Can you give us a rundown of the film scores you have upcoming?

WILLIAMS: Well, I'm certainly busy as ever, which I enjoy. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is definitely in my future. Star Wars Episode 3 will follow that, which I'm very much looking forward to doing. It's like the completion of an epic journey. Then I'm back with Steven Spielberg for the fourth Indiana Jones, an exciting project that seems to have attracted incredible interest. Steven has also expressed his desire for me to score the next Jurassic Park film, which he is developing presently. It's a genre I would just adore to revisit, so I'll do my best to be available for it.
