This one’s too good to hide after the break, so let’s begin this roundup of sequel news with a killer quote from Nicolas Cage. The actor often seems to go off the deep end with respect to movie roles, and one of his crazier ones in recent memory is the Neil LaBute remake of The Wicker Man. There’s no way to sum up the madness of the film; if you haven’t seen it, get that sucker now.

During a recent web chat with Empire, Cage was asked about revisiting old characters, and he said

I would like to hook up with one of the great Japanese filmmakers, like the master that made ‘Ringu,’ and I would like to take ‘The Wicker Man’ to Japan, except this time he’s a ghost.

Hideo Nakata is the director of whom he speaks, and it took me a couple extra seconds to call his name to memory as my mind was busy exploding. Was Cage serious? Hard to tell of late, given the other films he’s been doing. But I would watch that Ringu Man movie, whatever it turned out to be, without thinking twice.

After the break lurks a variety of news about an incredibly disparate collection of films:  the theoretical follow-up to Before Sunset; Grown Ups 2;  a possible R.I.P.D. sequel, and Riddick. Read More »

Rising French stars Léa Seydoux (Midnight in Paris, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Tahar Rahim (A Prophet) are set to lead Grand Central, a France-set contemporary romantic drama by Rebecca Zlotowski. Rahim will play a danger-addicted man whose nuclear facility job exposes him to deadly radiation levels. He’s transformed by a forbidden affair with a woman he meets at the plant (Seydoux).

Grand Central marks a reunion for Seydoux and Zlotowski, who previously worked together in Zlotowski’s directorial debut Belle Épine. Seydoux was also recently cast in Michel Gondry’s The Foam of the Days, and will next appear opposite Diane Kruger in March’s Farewell, My Queen. Rahim starred last year in Jean-Jacques Annaud’s Black Gold, and has just wrapped Joachim Lafosse’s Loving Without Reason. Grand Central is expected to begin filming this summer. [Variety]

After the jump, Riddick adds to its cast and Sex Bob-omb frontman Stephen Stills boards an indie.
