We’ve got news for you on several sequels today, some more realistic than others. On the “coming soon to a theater near you” end, there’s a new synopsis for G.I. Joe: Retaliation; meanwhile, projects like Gremlins 3 and Pineapple Express 2 have been rumored for ages but as far as we can tell they’re still just a twinkle in some studio exec’s eye. After the jump:
- Warner Bros. registers domains for Green Lantern 2 and Gremlins 3
- Seth Rogen discusses the possibility of a Pineapple Express sequel
- G.I. Joe: Retaliation gets an official synopsis
- Paramount moves forward on a Mission: Impossible sequel and Top Gun 2

Over the weekend I attended a discussion between director JJ Abrams and composer Michael Giacchino held at the Hammer Museum. For those of you reading this that live in Los Angeles, note that Hammer holds simular events on a regular basis and tickets are free (first come first serve, which means waiting in line for an hour or two). The entire hour and a half discussion will go online later this week hopefully, and I’ll post it on the site when it does. Nothing insanely newsworthy came from the discussion, but JJ did speak briefly about how Brad Bird‘s upcoming Mission: Impossible IV – Ghost Protocol. Abrams gpraised Brad Bird as a live-action director and gushed about the IMAX footage. Read the quote, after the jump.

What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn’t make the front page of /Film. After the jump we’ve included 26 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It’s like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might’ve missed that you think should go in /Film’s Page 2 – email us!

Just Jared has published photos of Brad Bird (Iron Giant, Ratatoullie, The Incredibles) and Tom Cruise doing location scouting for the fourth Mission: Impossible film, which plans to shoot under the working title Aries starting on December 6 and going through early March 2011. The film is set to co-star Jeremy Renner as Brandt, Paula Patton (Precious) as ‘a young operative who works with Cruise’s Ethan Hunt character’, and Simon Pegg reprising his role as Benji Dunn. Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec wrote the screenplay. Not really news, but i thought I’d share the photo as today’s Photo of the Day.
This story is, to some extent, just an incremental step forward from one we ran a couple weeks ago. Specifically, Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) was said to be in talks to direct Mission: Impossible IV. He was on a shortlist with a few other guys. A couple of them can’t (Edgar Wright, Ruben Fleischer) or won’t do the film and now Bird has emerged as the lead candidate, and is seriously negotiating with Paramount to make the film. Read More »
