The Hangover III
Director Todd Phillips tells Screen Junkies that he has an idea for a third “Hangover”. “It’s certainly not in the same template that you’ve seen these movies,” Phillips said. “Obviously we always envisioned it as a trilogy as you can imagine. The third would be very much a finale and an ending. The most I could say about it, what’s in my head, and I haven’t discussed it with these actors, is that it is not following that template but very much a new idea.” Phillips even suggests spin-off movies. “Listen, I love this world that we’ve created,” Phillips said. “I love every actor in these movies, even all the ones that aren’t here today as well. Who knows, we do a Mr. Chow movie, I haven’t talked to Ken [Jeong] about it but Chow is definitely a man of mystery much like Austin Powers. He obviously has a web that is woven deep in crime and women.”

Avatar 2
Stephen Lang was questioned by MTV about a possible return to Pandora. “I can’t talk about that with you,” he answered with a knowing grin, adding this little gem: “I could, but then I’d have to do away with you.” Lang, who is out stumping his new Spielberg TV series, said “Anything’s possible on Pandora,” he conceded, “but today, it’s all about ‘Terra Nova.’”

Bridesmaids 2
Director Paul Feig says they’ve been talks to follow-up the surprise hit. Speaking to Vulture, the filmmaker said “Who knows? I mean, it depends how we do in the next couple weeks, but I know there’s definitely … it’s already been brought up,” he said. “So, um, you know, when you get a group that’s this deep and this good, it’s a crime to not use them again. You just want to make sure that you do it as well as you did the first one and try to make it better, even. So, we’re up for the challenge.”

Thor 2
Is a sequel already underway!? Cinema Blend have heard from an inside source that Paramount may already be greasing the wheels on the Norse God’s return. Says the site, ”Our source tells us that while the Thor 2 project is still in very early stages and they don’t expect to start actually writing the script until the end of the year, internally producers are kicking around possible villains. In contention to face off against Thor are two characters named The Enchantress and The Executioner. ”
