Fast & Furious Supercharged Ride

I always thought it was very strange that Universal Studios theme parks don’t feature a Fast and the Furious ride. The films have earned almost $2.4 billion worldwide — Fast and the Furious is the biggest franchise in Universal Studios’ history, yet they can’t even build a ride in the domestic theme parks? Yes, they’ve had that lame stop on the studio tram tour that features a bunch of cars spinning on turntables, a cross promotion for their earlier film The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift. But the tram stop is one of the stupidest parts of the tram tour, and by the way, Tokyo Drift is the lowest earning movie of the franchise — seems like an odd choice.

Finally, Universal Studios Hollywood has announced a new Fast and the Furious ride which will be called Fast & Furious Supercharged (we mentioned the trademark in an earlier Theme Park Bits).  More details on the Fast & Furious Supercharged ride revealed after the jump.

The Karate Kid sequel director hired

When The Karate Kid was released in theaters in May 2010, the box office surpassed all expectations (grossing $176 million domestic and about $182 internationally). Columbia Pictures was quick to announce that the company would begin development on a sequel. Kung Fu Panda screenwriters Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reif were tapped to pen the follow-up, but development of the Karate Kid sequel has not been as quick. In 2012, Zak Penn, the writer of X-Men: The Last Stand and The Incredible Hulk, was brought on to rewrite the sequel screenplay. Two years later and Sony has hired Breck Eisner to be the Karate Kid sequel director.

Goonies Sequel
A Goonies sequel? There have been many rumors over the years, and supposedly a script that fell into development hell, but as Hollywood continues to search for my recycled ideas – The Goonies never say die. Goonies director Richard Donner was approached (err corned with a video camera) by gossip site TMZ and dropped the bomb that “We’re doing a sequel” to the 1980′s classic film Goonies. When asked if any of the stars from the original movie would return for The Goonies 2, Donner responded “Hopefully all of them!” Watch the full video of Donner talking comic book movies and the Goonies sequel, embedded after the jump.
