Couple of updates on a few sequel ideas that many are ‘hoping’ happen. Bruce Campbell dropped by to say there’s not much movement on “Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash” and that it’s still in that “nothing to talk about” category. Corey Feldman’s a bit more optimistic about “The Goonies” sequel, saying “Were pushing for it”. On a different subject altogether, checked out a couple of flicks today, Ron Howard’s newie “The Missing” which was good, but nothing stellar, and “Big Fish” which might just be considered worth enough of the aforesaid great. It was a delight. Burton fans will love it. Burton sceptics will swallow their tongues. Look out for it.
