MONDAY, MARCH 5

THE RAZZIES---the 2018 Golden Raspberry Awards were announced. The Worst Film was THE EMOJI MOVIE. The Worst Actor was Tom Cruise (THE MUMMY). The Worst Actress was Tyler Perry (BOO 2!: A MADEA HALLOWEEN).
A new category was announced: The Razzie Nominee So Rotten You Loved It with the winner being BAYWATCH. Dwayne Johnson posted his response, “Here’s the cool thing: the movie was so bad that they actually had to create another category. The new category is a movie so rotten you eventually fell in love with it. I’m not kidding! Which means the s**t sandwich you’ve been eating is so bad that you eventually started to like it.
We made Baywatch with the best of intentions, it didn’t work out like that, but I humbly and graciously accept my Razzie. And I thank you critics, and I thank you fans.”




LOGAN'S RUN---Warner Bros. remake underway of the 1976 sci fi movie that starred Michael York and Jenny Agutter. The remake will be directed by Simon Kinberg (X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX) with a script by Peter Craig (THE HUNGER GAMES).





PAST MIDNIGHT---Keanu Reeves is the top candidate to star in this Netflix vigilante superhero movie. Anthony and Joe Russo (CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR) are the producers. Rick Famuyiwa is the director.





STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI---Mark Hamill commented on his death scene, “I refuse to believe that he’s gone. My theory is he just teleported to somewhere else and left his robe behind. He teleported to a nudist colony, that’s what I’m hoping.”

MAGNUM, PI---Perdita Weeks (PENNY DREADFUL) will play Juliet Higgins, the ex-MI6 agent in the CBS reboot pilot. John Hillerman played the male version of the character in the original tv series.





STRANGER THINGS---Maya Thurman-Hawke, daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, has joined the cast for Season 3. She will play a bored girl who, "...seeks excitement in her life and gets more than she bargained for when she uncovers a dark secret in Hawkins, Ind.”





THE WALKING DEAD---Scott R. Gimple, who will oversee the AMC franchise, said new spinoff series are being planned, "I’m hoping to do a variety of different projects that are probably more in line with what we see on TV but maybe in different rhythms and formats and things like that. We’ll still continue to come out with great digital content but I’m excited about the kind of stuff we can do. But I really am talking about all sides of it and I know we’ll have more to talk about soon on that.”
Also, Pollyana McIntosh commented on fan rumors that Jadis will be Alpha after Negan's main villain reign and the 'All Out War' saga ends after Season 8, “Well, I’m not gonna tell you! [Laughs] But, no, he’s [Gimple] said publicly and to me, ‘It’s a completely different thing. It’s not you.’ And I say, ‘Fine, okay.'”

HERE THERE BE MONSTERS---Joachim Ronning (PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES) will direct this monster movie. No plot details were released.

BAD BOYS---Jessica Alba will co-star with Gabrielle Union in the NBC pilot based on the movie series. Alba will play “Nancy McKenna, Burnett’s [Union] partner. McKenna joined the Army out of high school and spent most of the 2000s in Iraq and Afghanistan. Women weren’t allowed in combat, so she joined the military police to get closer to the action. McKenna is now a detective raising two preteen step-kids with her husband.”

FEAR---remake of the 1996 movie that starred Reese Witherspoon, Mark Wahlberg and William Petersen. Jonathan Herman (STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON) is the writer.

Alan, who graduated from the University of North Carolina, and Marilyn have worked with composers such as Michel Legrand, Jerry Goldsmith, John Williams, Quincy Jones and Dave Grusin.

This guy is a riot. One of the most quotable celebs out there today. smile

They really screwed him over in my opinion. It's pretty clear he returned on good graces (and yeah for the pay check) but they just pooped on the legacy of his character. To late, but Hamill should've demanded a full outline for the new trilogy before signing on. Of course they didn't have one to begin with.

Yeah, been in production for 15 years now. Don't hold your breath.

Magnum.............. it's just ............. it's ........... it's just depressing and sad. Go on folks, go the whole hog and make Magnum a transexual. T.C. can remain black but he now to is a she, a lesbian invalid from the gulf war, and Rick is.... ah........ whatever.

D.S.

I've been saying all along that there's a good chance that he did NOT die at the end of TLJ, and if J.J. knows what's good for him, he'll have Luke coming back, NOT as a "force ghost", but as flesh and blood, and explain that Luke DID just go somewhere else, to avoid detection by Ren and his clan. It IS DOABLE!

RE : MAGNUM REBOOT

Soooo many possible storylines that could be written with the original ( and only, and best) actors reprising their original roles (and confronting where their lives have taken them)...but no, let's rehash another classic show. Don't get me wrong, Selleck's Magnum wouldn't still be running around in his white shorts but a survey of tv fans would, I believe, much prefer a one-off movie with these guys (starting with them unfortunately getting together at Higgins' funeral) than a new show. Anyway, too late for any of this of course but bloody hell, leave the great shows alone.....and who wants Wahlberg as Steve Austin?? Wrong, wrong, wrong.....tantrum now over...

Sure, no one dies for good in films anymore. If the winds blow ($$$$$) they'll bring him back some way. But I don't think there's any question his physical form died in TLJ. It's how Ben and Yoda went.

My biggest question though is this, when they pass away their bodies dissolve but they leave their clothing behind, but when ever they return they have their old cloths back on. How'd they get them back?!

As to the new Magnum PI, I was like: OK, PC BS demands a female character (I was hoping for Rick if they had to), but they decided to go with Higgins and again I was thinking, Judi Dench made a fine M in the James Bond movies so that could work if they get a great, seasoned actress, but this actress is younger than the new Magnum actor so the professor/student Higgins/Magnum dynamic of the original show that was so much fun has just been thrown in the crapper. So what now, sexual tension between Magnum and Higgins?! Just awful....

Same with the new Lost in Space I had some hope for....

I'll believe there's a remake of Logan's Run when they actually start filming it. Warner have been tooling around with this project for years. It's been decades since I read the book, as I remember it's an exiting & occasionally violent, but straightforward story, I'd have thought any good scriptwriter could knock off a decent script in no time at all. The seventies film is a flabby mess, but I've got a soft spot for it.
