Completely forgot that The Matrix franchise is getting some new cinematic-blood, courtesy of writer Zak Penn. Well, what exactly is the movie going to be about, WriterGuy? Apparently dude can’t say much — understandably — other than it’s not going to be a reboot or a continuation.
Warner Bros. is looking to get back into The Matrix. With a reboot/maybe not a reboot, potentially starring Michael B. Jordan.
I think Ready Player One is deec. It cribs some concepts from better works (IMO~ OF COURSE) and uses them to jack off to the 1980’s. Which is cool. I imagine it was even cooler to those who valorize said decade. Does the novel need a sequel? I don’t know. Will I read it? Yes.
Ready Player One really isn’t that good of a book. (Though it’s enjoyable. Am I equivocating here? I guess.) However, it is a really enjoyable pastiche that pays homage to about 3,000 of my loves. So while I wasn’t blown away by the title, the content and the concept would certainly be awesome to see on the big screen. And Christopher Nolan directing it? Fuck yes. But I think this is more wishful thinking on WB’s part than anything else.
I really enjoyed Pacific Rim. I never thought the movie would receive a genuine sequel, instead having a new installment banished to Endless Wind Cycle of Speculation. Well – I’m wrong again
Pacific Rim 2 may not be definitely happening, but at the very least it’s going to have a script. Del Toro is working on the Rim’s sequel with Zak Penn, who you may recognize from somehow being a contributor on for both X3 and The Avengers. So here’s hoping his work on the movie is far more Avengers, far less “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” references.
