Summer in the North, Winter in the South – either way, there’s a bunch of films getting production going in the middle of the year. Let’s see what’s up!

Top Gun: Maverick

The long-awaited “Top Gun 2” is getting underway this July, with director Joseph Kosinski at the helm. Omega Underground has the scoop, reporting that Paramount/Skydance will get the project rolling mid year, with a release date of July 12th, 2019. Further casting news is still yet to be seen, but the film is said to explore Maverick’s role in modern military.

The Expendables 4

The fourth instalment of the “Expendables” franchise is said to start production in August, according to The Arnold Fans, who note a comment from co-star Randy Couture:

“I’m excited about Expendables 4. Right now, we’re scheduled to start filming in August and hopefully we’re able to stay on schedule. It sounds like we’re coming back to Bulgaria, which is exciting. I’ve spend a lot of time in Sofia and Varna and I’m excited to come back. I love the people (there), I love the food and I’m excited to come back.”

Franchise-veteran Sylvester Stallone will return for the flick, though the remaining cast have a big fat question mark over their heads.

Terminator 6

The same site has a comment from Arnold Schwarzenegger, from their interview with the “Terminator” star, regarding the 6th film:

“We are starting to shoot Terminator 6 in June to the middle of October, so I am in that. I am looking forward to coming back as the T-800 model. It’s gonna be great with Tim Miller as the director and Jim Cameron is kind of supervising the whole thing.”

Paramount is yet to announce an official release date for the film, which originally was slated for July 26, 2019.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Moving away from the super action films, the “Sonic the Hedgehog” live-action film will get rolling in July in Atlanta, Georgia, Omega Underground reports. The film was recently given a release date of November 15, 2019, just in time for a very Sonic-y Christmas.

Jeff Fowler is set to direct the film, and let’s hope some casting news comes soon. I wanna know who gets the title role! (I’m available for Tails, fyi).

Coming through on it’s promise to spend more time perfecting the title character’s look, Paramount has delayed the “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie until 2020.

After the release of the recent trailer, fans of the SEGA-game freaked on Twitter over the blue animal’s human teeth, calling them “creepy” and “nightmarish.” The filmmakers went into immediate damage control, promising punters they’ll fix the look.

The pic, starring Jim Carrey, is now moving from its November 8 release to February 14, 2020 next year so the blue guy looks better for y’all.

Rocky 7!?

Sylvester Stallone says he has a “great idea” for another “Rocky” film

While we’ll unlikely see Creed belting his glove again, Sylvester Stallone says Rocky Balboa isn’t out.

The actor  made the revelation today at the Cannes film festival, where his long career and latest ‘Rambo’ film are under the Croisette’s spotlight.

While ‘Sly’ hints that his participation in the “Creed” franchise might be two and out, the 72-year-old says a seventh “Rocky” film could be on the cards.

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different”.

“It’s like a magician,” he continued. “Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed any more. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work.” he said.

Stallone didn’t say whether it’d be Balboa, who we last saw in 2018’s “Creed II”, training the immigrant.

The actor had intended for 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” to be the character’s swansong but returned to the role when the idea for the “Creed” films were presented to him.

Stallone was at Cannes to attend a a 4K restoration screening of his groundbreaking actioner “First Blood” and promote its fourth sequel “Last Blood”, which sees the long-suffering vet going up against cartels in Mexico.

“He goes out there and bad things happen,” Stallone said. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people are going to get killed.”
