Stuff You May Have Missed #2

Or, possibly more appropriately named, stuff we didn’t tell you about.
Sorry for that.
But you see, we do have full 9-5 Mon-Fri jobs, and so it’s hard for us to post about stuff exactly when it comes out. We do try, but sometimes we don’t get the opportunity, so, here goes – let’s catch up:

Emilia Clarke has secured the coveted role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot, according to Deadline.
She will be teaming up with former GOT-alumni Alan Taylor, who has directed several episodes of the extremely popular series. Jason Clarke is rumoured to be current front-runner for the role of John Connor.

– Mega-moguls Disney have just acquired the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures. Variety reports that under the new arrangement, Disney gains distribution and marketing rights to future films, in addition to retaining the ownership rights it secured when it acquired Lucasfilm. Paramount will continue to be responsible for distribution of the first four films in the franchise and will receive a financial participation on any future films that are produced and released. So what does this mean?
Are we likely to see another soon? Harrison Ford expressed only a few weeks ago whilst promoting Enders Game on the Graham Norton Show that he would do another Indiana Jones film “In a New York minute”. Lets hope that it doesn’t involve aliens again, cause seriously that ending was a copout.

Hitflix is reporting that Don Cheadle will be reprising his role as War Machine/Iron Patriot in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, with his character apparently having “a key role in the conflict with Ultron that is the main focus of the sequel.”

Peter Jackson has spoken about the upcoming TinTin sequel, stating that once he is free from his current Hobbit responsibilities, he will direct the sequel to the Spielberg film.

– Several writers have been sourced to script the third Star Trek film, though a director has yet to be announced. Writer Roberto Orci will be joined by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne after Orci’s regular collaborator Alex Kurtzman passed on the third film. Star Trek 3is aiming for a 2016 release date which is why JJ Abrams is unable to return to the directors chair as he will be working on the upcoming Star Wars flick.

Ben Whishaw is confirmed to play Freddie Mercury in the upcoming biopic, having taken over the role after Sacha Baron Cohen, who was attached the role for several years, dropped out due to creative differences with the remaining members of Queen. The film is rumoured to follow Mercury’s journey from the formation of the band in the early ‘70s, through to their famous Live Aid set in 1985.
