Warcraft Featurette

Thrillist has posted a fantastic and brutally honest interview with director Duncan Jones, whose Warcraft was a critical dud earlier this summer. However, the film was a gigantic hit in certain international territories, so he’s asked the big question – would he be willing to devote another couple years of his life to a sequel? His response:

If there were an opportunity for us to make another film in the Warcraft universe I really feel like we did the hard work in the first movie as far as setting the table. I would love to capitalize on three and a half years of hard work and be able to have some fun in that world now that I’ve done the hard work. [So] who knows? Maybe I’m just being a masochist.

In the meantime, Jones is getting ready to film Mute, his spiritual sequel to his debut film, Moon. It seems that a smaller, more personal film like this is just what Jones needs right about now:

Mute is massively therapeutic for me. It really is. I’m equally proud and furious about Warcraft. I love it. I spent so much time on it. I put all my heart into trying to make it work. Parts of it, I think, work, but it also drives me crazy that I wasn’t able to push through everything that I knew needed to happen in order to make the film I knew it could be.

In a new episode of AMC’s Geeking Out, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick revealed that they’re currently writing a sequel to Zombieland:

That is breaking news that we’re on Zombieland 2 right now. We’re sitting with Woody [Harrelson] tomorrow and are going to sort of walk him through some of the stuff we want to do. All the cast is pretty excited.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard news of a Zombieland 2. Heck, we’ve been hearing about it since the first film arrived in 2010. Since then, the project has failed to come together many times. Even a pilot for a potential TV series based on the same premise failed to garner a series order. Then again, Reese and Wernick did just write Deadpool, which was a gigantic hit, so who knows? Maybe they now have the leverage to make this finally and officially happen.

 

After an extended break, the crowdfunded Super Troopers 2 is set to finish filming in Boston. Actor and co-writer Steve Lemme, who played MacIntyre ‘Mac’ Womack in the original, teased the return and the location on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Erik Stolhanske, who plays Robert ‘Rabbit’ Roto, had to celebrate his birthday a little early so he could report for filming. The new round of shooting will also include those who donated extra cash to the film’s IndieGoGo campaign to appear on screen, as indicated by this update:

Cameras start rolling the first week of September! That means, if you’re a Featured Extra, Producer or VIP Set Guest, it’s finally time to make plans! One of our producers emailed all of you earlier this week, but if you didn’t get your invite, let us know ASAP.
