Star Trek: Nemesis: Screenwriter John Logan was interviewed by DreamWatch magazine recently where he addressed why Spock or Sela will not be appearing in the new film:
"We had a great deal of discussion about Ambassador Spock and how he may or may not have played into what's happening," Logan notes. "Because of the way the plot developed there wasn't really a need for him. As much as I love Spock - and what writer in the world wouldn't want to write Spock - there was just no way to make it work elegantly, so it wouldn't just seem like we were throwing Spock in there."
The Amazing Spider-man: Ted Raimi, brother of Spider-man director, Sam Raimi, spoke at the Mid-Ohio-Con last weekend about the new film:
"Spider-Man 2 has begun shooting already, and we don't even have a script," Raimi said, laughing. "That's very typical Hollywood. 'Let's shoot it!' 'What are we shooting?' 'I don't know, roll cameras! Get Tobey Maguire in here, where is he?'"

The Polar Express: Many things were revealed this week by The LA Times about Robert Zemeckis' next, The Polar Express, due in theaters in 2004 or 2005:
The plan this time is to create a live-action movie without filming any true "live" action.
All of the scenes in "The Polar Express" will be shot with digital cameras in front of a blank screen, with sets to be filled in later by computers. The actors will be covered in motion-capture sensors so that each move of an arm, each flicker of an eyelid and each wrinkle of a lip will be stored on a computer and used as guide for the digital animators who will create the actual movie footage.
The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen:IGN Filmforce has an article running right now about a few pages of the script that 'were' online. They have since been taken down, but IGN' s report is still giving away some key spoilers.
This particular scene (pages 117-119) not only reveals the film's final moments but a MAJOR SPOILER about the fate of one of the main characters as well. The coda introduces Campion Bond as "an elegant gentleman" who greets the League after their climatic battle with the villainous "Fantom."

"It's in the story phase. I'm meeting with Ridley [Scott, director of the original film] and talking about what it should be and sort of flushing it out," Logan reveals.

After decades of peace with the Cylons (robots built by humans but with enough intelligence to turn against their designers), the humans of Kobol are virtually annihilated in a sneak attack. With a small remnant of humanity surviving aboard the last remaining Battlestar, Commander Adama and President Laura Roslin opt to make a run for it in the Galactica, hoping to reach the humans' legendary homeworld of Earth, while pursued through space by the fanatical, now humanoid Cylons...

Clone Wars Cartoon:The Force.net has the latest word on the The Clones Wars cartoon we reported on last month. Seems money troubles might have hit the ill fated show:
Unfortunately, everyone here is talking about the Clone War series in the past tense. As in, not going to happen. The project was going to be expansive - the Cartoon Network wanted some of a toy line and merchandising based on the new sub-franchise themselves, and Six Flags even wanted to make rides centered on them. This was going to be a huge operation, possibly as big as the movies themselves. "Event animation," not some cheap cartoon.
All that exists in all actuality is some concept art floating around offline and a short pilot type of episode - really at best described as a story demo reel that looks alot like Tartakovsky's stuff. Character elements look somewhat handdrawn, but it is completely CGI and very few people have been priviy enough to see it. And the now defunct Feature Films Division at ILM (Frankenstein) are responsible for the project so far, which is going to also pose a problem since they no longer exist, being disbanded months before this took off. But the bottom line is that everyone on this end really wants to do it - but wants more that Lucasfilm will offer. As always, it seems to have boiled down to money unless someone blinks first.
The Force.net is hoping that this is "part of the process". Of course we all hope to see a highly detailed Star Wars based cartoon hit the boob tube, but for now, it looks like we'll have to wait!
