The Amazing Spider-man: Some wild Spider-man sequel rumors are abound tonight. Let's see if we can't clear things up.
E! Online is claiming that Robert De Niro might be playing Spider-man's adversary in the next film. His character, none other than Doc Ock. And according to their article, if De Niro passes on the gig, the runner up for the role is Billy Bob Throton! Check out what they had to say:
Should De Niro pass on Doc Ock, I hear Raimi pal Billy Bob Thornton is on standby--just in case. Another Raimi buddy, Bruce Campbell (The Evil Dead), long-rumored to be lined up to play the Lizard, may sit out Spidey 2. Especially with screenwriter Michael Chabon (Wonder Boys) on board. I hope Chabon sticks to a one-hero/one-villain concept instead of going the dismal way of the overcrowded Batman & Robin.
But, don't get too excited (or bummed for that matter) because Stax over at IGN Filmforce did some checking tonight and found out that these are nothing but wild rumors:
IGN FilmForce contacted Spider-Man 2 producer Laura Ziskin who advised us that she "can safely deny all of those rumors!" Incidentally, while Bruce Campbell has confirmed that he'll have a role in the sequel he says the part has yet to be determined.
The German TV Magazine "TV Spielfilm" and Moviemagazine "Cinema" talked with Arnold Schwarzenegger about T3.
Schwarzenegger: "The Movie will be awesome! Mostow has done a great job. And I´m sure the Fans out there would´nt be disappointed."
Further in the interview he said: "We´ve done so many stunts and there will be a lots of action sequences. Its really incredible. Things that you´ve never seen before"
And what about the female Terminator better known as the Terminatrix that goes up against the Terminator?
Schwarzenegger: "Oh! She will kicks ass. A person that you never want to meet in your life because she is more than devlish! She had Plasmaweapons(!) and try to kill me with them. With these specialweapons she can destroy everything that she wants. Our fight scenes are really extreme. With the Plasmaweapons the TX destroy almost a whole city and I must prevent that. But it's hard to do this. More at this point i cant say. Its really top secret!"
And what about the Script? Is it true that it was revised?
Schwarzenegger:" Yeah! The first Script wasn´t so good. They made a second Script and this one is really good!"
Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets: According to Variety, there's something a little tricky being tacked onto the credits of the new Harry Potter film:
Near-epic running time, which filmmakers might rationalize as necessary to accommodate all the essential incidents of the novel, might prove wearying to some, but won't be a barrier; at 161 minutes, the picture is nine minutes longer than "Sorcerer's Stone," although final credits run a full 10 minutes.
At the end of them is a very short filmed coda revealing the humorous fate of one of the principals.
Lights Out gets to catch a screening of the flick Saturday morning so stay tuned for a complete review!
