Movie News: Might them find treasure?

New Treasure Island movie

The same Sherlock Holmes producer who's making a new Three Musketeers movie is also planning a Treasure Island remake. He's working hard at being my new Favorite Person in the World. [/Film]

Pirates 4 Casting Spoiler

Who is this woman playing in Pirates of the Caribbean 4? Check /Film for the answer, but be warned that there's a small spoiler in the revelation.

Avatar 2: The Oceans of Pandora

"The Oceans of Pandora" isn't the Avatar sequel's sub-title, it's just what the movie will likely be about. According to James Cameron, "Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest." He's quick to add though that "I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well." [/Film]

Ka-Zar movie?

It's hard to tell which specifics in this CHUD article are based on fact and which are speculation, but while talking about Marvel's plans to follow up their blockbuster movies with a bunch of smaller-scale ones, Ka-Zar gets mentioned. For those who don't know, Ka-Zar is Marvel's take on Tarzan, only with a booty-kicking jungle wife, a pet sabretooth, mutant cavemen, and lots and lots of dinosaurs. How can this not be a movie?

CHUD doesn't mention it, but I also have to wonder if that long-rumored Shang Chi movie might finally get made now.

Demon guns, cursed cowboys, Black Widow, Oz the Great and Powerful, and Star Wars after the break.

A Thousand Guns

Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air) is going to star in a supernatural Western about the wife of a missionary who goes after the men who used a demonic gun to shoot her husband. [/Film]

See Jonah Hex

Speaking of supernatural Westerns, this is the first good look I've seen of Josh Brolin in full Hex make-up. [/Film]

High Res Widow

I may have shared this before, but I don't remember seeing a version of this image that's this high res. /Film has others from Iron Man 2 as well.

Oz the Great and Powerful

Details are sketchy (there's hope that Robert Downey Jr may star), but - as someone whose Oz familiarity is limited to that one movie - I'm intrigued by the idea of a movie that tells the story of the Wizard's arrival in Oz and rise to power. [/Film]

Star Wars Uncut

This is a partial result of the project that asked Star Wars fans to make homemade versions of their favorite scenes that could then be edited together to recreate the entire first movie. It actually did me a lot of good to watch this and see the love that people still have for that film.

Han Realizes

You can see the joke coming, but play it through anyway. The delivery is awesome.
