DIE HARD 6

It looks like hybrid movie McClane (Die Hard 6) is being pushed back out of development, for now.

Lorenzo di Bonaventura was out doing media interviews this week for Pet Sematary and sat down with Slashfilm to discuss many of the franchise sequels he’s involved in that are in the works.

He says there’s no start date as yet for McClane, the sixth and likely final Die Hard film and he doesn’t know what’s happening there because of the Disney-Fox deal: “My sense is that we won’t know much about it for a while… I don’t know enough about their plans really to have any point of view.

ARMY OF THE DEAD

Dave Bautista has joined the sequel to Dawn of the Dead (2004).

A lot of people will agree that Dawn of the Dead (2004) was one of the few good remakes out there, which by the way followed Night of the Living Dead (1990) which was also a good remake.  Zack Snyder originally intended to film a sequel, Army of the Dead, which was cut off because of his Watchmen project.

Of course the 2004 movie got a de facto follow up, but no-one, rightly, wants to even remember that.

The script of Army of the Dead was written by Zack Snyder and Joby Harold. Filming for Army of the Dead was to start once they got a director as the producing studios had approved the script. Also according to Deborah Snyder, the film was set in Las Vegas, and the town had to be contained to stop the outbreak of zombies.

The new film will see a band of criminals try to pull off a heist, as everyone else is fleeing in panic.  Makes I suppose, someone would definitely do that in that scenario.

AN HONEST THIEF

Here is a picture of Liam Neeson who will play An Honest Thief, a movie about a man who meets the love his life in Annie (Walsh), a worker at the front desk of a storage facility where he hid $7M in stolen loot. They fall head over heels, and he resolves to wipe the slate clean by turning himself in. When the case is turned over to a crooked FBI agent, everything becomes more dangerous and difficult.

From Mark Williams, who co-created the fairly good Ozark, Jeffrey Donovan, Jai Courtney and Anthony Ramos also star.  The film will supposedly have a budget of around 30 million.

RAMBO V

Here is Stallone talking about Rambo V.  He says the end of the film will surprise people.  Maybe Rambo will die?  Although it’d better a good death… will we hear “Here lies John Rambo, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, survivor of countless incursions behind enemy lines. Killed for vagrancy in Jerkwater, Mexico”.

But seriously, it’s going to be good to see Rambo stab sex traffickers in the heart, as has already been confirmed.
