No. No it's not.

This could be awesome...

oth the stars and writers of poker's most enduring film say a sequel is a realistic possibility.

"Everybody would probably come back," Rounders star Matt Damon told PokerListings. "The actors all had a really good time working together. I know Edward would want to do it; we had a blast working together. [Director] John Dahl I'm sure would like to do it. Maybe someday it will happen.

"The only reason to do a movie like that would be if we had a great idea. If the two writers suddenly said eureka! We have a great idea. Then everyone involved would be interested in exploring it."

According to one half of the David Levien and Brian Koppleman writing team, who penned both Rounders and the casino caper flick Oceans 13, that "eureka" moment may not be far off.

"We've been concentrating on Rounders 2 lately; Ideas are percolating," Levien told PokerListings. "It's great to know that all of the original players want to come back and do another one."

The Hollywood rumor mill recently had Leonardo DiCaprio set to star in a Rounders sequel using a Levien and Koppleman script based on online casinos.

Levien confirmed that project is in the works, but its association to Rounders is circumstantial at best.

"We did just set up a project centering on the world of offshore online casinos with Leonardo attached," Levien said. "It's a little ways down the road, but we've started researching."

"It's a great world. Some of the countries where online casinos are based are like the new version of the Wild West, and with so much money on the line there is lots of drama attached."

All right, quick roundup from different sources

IMDB wrote:Disney Proposes Enchanted Sequel

Amy Adams looks set to cast a spell over cinema audiences again - film bosses at Disney are moving forward with an Enchanted sequel.

The redhead stepped into the role of a Disney princess to romance Patrick Dempsey in the 2007 live action fairytale.

The film, which also starred Susan Sarandon and James Marsden, was a major success, grossing more than $340 million (£212 million) at the box office worldwide.

And Disney bosses are keen to breathe life back into the story with a follow-up - The Proposal director Anne Fletcher has been hired to direct the sequel and the original cast members are expected to return, according to Variety.com.

We've been hearing for a while now that Universal was looking for another installment of THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS franchise - now that's on the way to happening.

Aiming for a 2011 release, Justin Lin (TOKYO DRIFT and FAST & FURIOUS) will direct FAST FIVE (a working title, or a real title?) from a screenplay by DRIFT/F&F writer Chris Morgan. Vin Diesel and Paul Walker will return.

And...

Variety wrote:Columbia Finds Symbol

Columbia Pictures is moving forward with "The Lost Symbol" -- the third pic in the "Da Vinci Code" franchise -- and has tapped British scribe Steven Knight to adapt.
Based on the Dan Brown thriller of the same name, "Lost Symbol" finds protag Robert Langdon summoned to Washington, D.C., where he begins decoding the symbols of the Freemasons.

Tom Hanks, who played Langdon in "The Da Vinci Code" and "Angels and Demons," has not yet committed to reprise the role, though he is expected to. Imagine topper Brian Grazer and John Calley have signed on to produce the latest installment.

Though "The Da Vinci Code" grossed $758 million worldwide in 2006, "Angels and Demons" fell short of that mark last year with a $486 million worldwide haul.

Still, the studio has high hopes for "Lost Symbol," which was a mammoth bestseller last year. The Doubleday book sold more than 1 million copies its first day in print in September.

Sony was eager to work with Knight again after acquiring the scribe's screenplay "Pawn Sacrifice" last year.

That project, which centers on American chess icon Bobby Fischer leading up to his historic world championship match against Boris Spassky, is being produced by Tobey Maguire.

Knight, whose credits include "Dirty Pretty Things," also penned drafts of two upcoming pics: Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island" and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."He is repped by CAA.

Joblo.com wrote:Christopher Nolan to develop Superman reboot

How's this for some shocking news for your Tuesday morning?! Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Christopher Nolan has agreed to develop a SUPERMAN reboot at Warner Bros! Nolan, it appears, will not write or direct the film but will be actively involved in "mentoring" the production and acting as a "godfather" so-to-speak to the creative team. Deadline is referring to the film as SUPERMAN 3.0 though it's likely that's just a cheeky reference to this being the third time the franchise has been started.

As they stress, and I would like to reiterate, this SUPERMAN project is in the very nascent stages of development. (So please NO "Emily Blunt as Lois Lane!!!" rumors for at least a few months.) While the film would "definitely not" be any kind of follow-up to SUPERMAN RETURNS, they claim that neither director Bryan Singer or star Brandon Routh have been giving their walking papers yet (YET...). They claim that there really isn't a plan yet for what they want to do just an agreement that Nolan will be helping them do it.

Their report also includes word that Nolan has officially hatched his concept for the third BATMAN movie and that David Goyer and Jonah Nolan are busy working on the script. So I guess that means the rumors about "Emily Blunt as Catwoman" can start again. Oh well, I guess you gotta take a little bad news to go with the good!

Tom Cruise back for MI:4

After a few months worth of negotiations, Paramount was able to get Tom Cruise to sign on the line that is dotted. The actor will return to star in MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE 4, which he will co-produce with JJ Abrams. Abrams, who directed the last MISSION film, will not step behind the camera again but the search is already on for a director who's ready to take on the challenge.

Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec, who were hired to write a draft back in August, are still working on the script and whatever they have concocted, it was enough to garner the interest of Cruise, who can be a tough guy to nail down when it comes to movies. Deadline is reporting that despite rumors to the contrary, MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE 4 won't team Ethan Hunt up with a younger agent or make him some kind of Mr. Miyagi to a new IMF team.

Paramount expects M:I4 to be Cruise's next film with a Memorial Day, 2011 release date planned. Filming is expected to begin this summer. Cruise can be seen next in another action/spy flick KNIGHT & DAY this summer.

Having not seen any Madea movies, are they sequels? Or are they just using a re-occuring character? I would not consider the bond films sequels per say.

Madea's films aren't sequels (AFAIK).

I've only seen Madea Goes to Jail and I Can Do Bad All By Myself, and while the latter did reference the former, they weren't sequels but just shared characters. Sort of like Kevin Smith's View Askew-niverse, only much crappier.

The Madea/Joe/Brian characters pop up in most of these films (again AFAIK) but that's just because Perry's fans find them funny for some reason so he keeps going to that well.

SciFiwire wrote:Superman news! Goyer writing; Brainiac, Luthor!

When news first broke that The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan would godfather a reboot of the Superman franchise, the natural question became: Who will write it?

Well, duh: How about Dark Knight story guy David Goyer himself? Who better than the guy who reinvented Blade and Batman for the big screen, a guy who is a big-time comics expert?


Today, Latino Review reports that Goyer—who recently stepped down as show runner of his ABC TV show FlashForward—will write the script for the new Superman.

(What about the third Nolan Batman movie, you ask? Latino Review says Goyer won't write it, but will rather just help with the story, as he did with Dark Knight.)

Other details:

♦The movie will be called The Man of Steel, not Superman.
♦The story will rely on John Byrne's 1986 reboot of the character in the DC Comics, which he once described as "taking Superman back to the basics ... It's basically Siegel and Shuster's Superman meets the Fleischer Superman in 1986," according to Wikipedia.
♦The story will feature Lex Luthor and Brainiac, but is not an origin story.
♦Brandon Routh, who starred in Bryan Singer's Superman Returns, won't be back, nor will Singer.

Justin Theroux Handling Zoolander 2 (from Empireonline)

here are those of us who have been waiting for a sequel to Zoolander since the credits stopped rolling on the original really, really, ridiculously good looking film. Now, Derek and his Blue Steel might actually be back, with Tropic Thunder/Iron Man 2 scribe Justin Theroux working with Ben Stiller on a follow-up.

According to Deadline Hollywood, Paramount has set Theroux to write and direct the sequel and that he’ll head to Paris Fashion Week to “immerse” himself in the world of current haute couture. Can’t he just watch Bruno? On second thoughts…

There’s no official word on plot or casting yet, though Stiller will clearly return and the studio is hoping to snag Owen Wilson as Hansel once more, though they haven’t set a deal yet. And Jonah Hill is apparently in negotiations to play the villain this time out, which makes us worry that he won’t live up to Will Ferrell’s superbly OTT Mugatu.

Oh, and it’ll need to be made for a relatively low budget – while the original made plenty on DVD and is a consistent seller on digital downloads, it didn’t exactly fly high at the box office (in fairness, it came out just after September 11, 2001, when America was not really looking for comedy) – with Paramount aiming to keep it under $50 million. Pay cuts for all!
