Rambo 4: UK's The Sun is reporting on what might be the next Rambo film, as Sylvester Stallone sees it:

Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone is returning as the warrior hero after writing a script himself.

Rambo VI is expected to hit cinemas next year, featuring action in Afghanistan and battles with the Taliban. A movie insider said: “The original story had Rambo killing bin Laden single-handed, but even Sly thought that was beyond the imagination. “Instead he will be the brains behind bin Laden’s downfall.” The idea has been talked about since the September 11 attacks. But bosses at Miramax, makers of the original Rambo, have only just agreed to the project.

Catwoman:Dark Horizons got some news from a scooper about the proposed Catwoman project:

"The talk of Ashley Judd being replaced by Halle Berry for "Catwoman" is true. Pitof hopes to have Berry locked in shortly for a Fall start. There's nothing major as to the reason of Judd's outing - simply said, it was a time-factor and Judd's busy as hell. And yes, Halle's definitely a bigger star action-movie wise these days. Anyway, it's almost a done deal. If it doesn't come off - there's a chance it'll pushed back, and they'll wait for Judd. Owen Wilson has signed to play a new character called Tom Lone, and Ellen Pompeo signed to play one of the film's vixens. There will be no Batman in the movie. John Rogers has done some amazing touch up work on the script too".

The Blair Witch Project 3:Moviehole talked to Haxan Film's, Dan Myrick, yesterday about the proposedBlair Witch 3 project:

"The fact of the matter is, Ed and I have an existing deal in place to write a "Prequel Script" for Artisan, but they have yet to decide whether or not they want to exercise this deal, so we've put it on the back burner for now and have since moved on to other projects. Ed is tweaking his script, "White Trash" and I'm in the process of trying to set up my "Tomorrow Man" project.", explains Myrick.

"We'll just have to wait and see what Artisan decides to do with the Blair franchise." Thanks to 'Clint'

Die Hard 4: Die Hardest:The Mirror and Hello Magazine are both reporting that Britney Spears might be up for the role of Bruce Willis' daughter in the film, who gets kidnapped, and therefore has to be rescued.

The Passion: Bill O'Reilly from The O'Reilly Factor at Fox News recently spoke with Mel Gibson about his latest directorial project, The Passion, which depicts the death of Jesus Christ:

O'REILLY:
Mr. Gibson, I understand the movie you're shooting right now about the death of Jesus of Nazareth is pretty graphic, pretty explicit.

MEL GIBSON, ACTOR/DIRECTOR:
It is, yes. I've never seen a rendering that equals this for reality. The versions I've seen either suffer from bad hair, inaccurate history, or not just being real. And somehow, because of that, I think I think you're distanced from them somehow. They're more like fairy tales. And this actually happened. It occurred. I'm exploring it this way, I think, to show the extent of the sacrifice willingly taken.

Thanks to DH for the scoop.

The X-Files Movie Series: Last week Gillian Anderson appeared on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs to talk about her upcoming projects, including that of further X-Files adventures:

"When asked by host Sue Lawley about the X-Files, Gillian Anderson seemed to break with her recent habit of trying to play down the show (indeed, she seemed slightly annoyed that Lawley's research was so bad that she had no idea that not only had Mulder and Scully become more than friends, they'd actually had a baby). Anderson then raised the future of the franchise and said that she would really like to do not just one but several films: she even talked enthusiastically about going back every couple of years to revisit the character and really establishing the X-Files as an ongoing cinematic concern. All in all, she seemed far more positive about the whole idea than she has in a very long while."

Thanks to a listener over at Dark Horizons.

Final Destination 3:Fangoria recently spoke with Final Destination 2 director, David R. Ellis, and producer, Craig Perry, to talk about the possibility of a 3rd film.

Ellis: "Well, they've got me already as an option to do FINAL DESTINATION 3 if they decide to do it," admits Ellis. "Truthfully, I think a twist would be to come back and do it as a comedy and spoof the FINAL DESTINATION movies. It might be interesting. We've left it wide open for a sequel, and I feel—and New Line feels—that the movie is going to be successful, so I'm sure there will be a third film, whether it's a comedy or a serious bloodbath."

Perry: "You know what, we don't know what that movie is, but we didn't want to paint ourselves into a corner where we could never get out of it," says Perry. "So, we came up with, I think, a very clever, consistent way to give us flexibility while delivering a satisfying ending that doesn't make you go, 'eeehhh, farkakte.' "

Look for Brian's Final Destination 2 review on January 31st!

The Simpsons:According to FOX News, Fox Television announced a deal Friday to renew the cartoon for two more seasons, taking it at least through May 2005. That will push The Simpsons past The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet, which aired on ABC from 1952 to 1966, as the all-time longest-running situation comedy.

"There was a general sense in the creative part of the group that things were chugging along creatively," Berman said. "You don't have the drama that you've had with other programs."

No word yet on the proposed Simpsons movie. We'll keep you updated.
