From the Eighties, Nineties and up through today, this edition of sequel bits spans the decades. After the jump read about the following:

  • Gremlins‘ star Zach Galligan joins the cast of Hatchet 3.

  • Michael Dorn, aka Worf in the Star Trek universe, was asked to be in Star Trek 2.
  • We’ve got a list of films that Scary Movie 5 is likely to parody.
  • Four clips from Prometheus are now online.

And the debate rages on. After a very reputable Star Trek source said they’d confirmed Benedict Cumberbatch was indeed playing Khan in J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2, one of the film’s stars, Simon Pegg, has now come out and flat out stated that is not the case. Who should we believe? We discuss after the jump. Read More »
