He’ll be back! Arnold Swarzenegger set to return to film.

The ‘Governator’ who has not long left office, is said to be reading three scripts already, to which he confirmed with, an Australian publication.
One of these scripts was something he had been thinking about before his term in office involving an older military soldier who is ordered to kill children just before the war ends but doesn’t do it and rather gets the kids to safety at the risk of his own life, and is also based on a true story.

The script itself is written by Randall Wallace (Braveheart, We Were Soldiers) called With Wings As Eagles. If Arnold accepts the role he would be playing a veteran Nazi soldier, something that never really worked out for Tom Cruise in Valkyrie.

Scre4m: Will Gale Weathers scream for the last time?

Scream 4 hit’s the theatres this April 15th which will be set 10 years after the events of Scream 3. Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox Arquette and David Arquette are all reprising their roles and the movie has been confirmed to kick off a brand new trilogy, which will focus on mainly a new cast.

Scream 4 had its own audience test last week, and the feedback had been mainly positive, even some saying it is the best one since the original, and though these comments may come from die hard fans that have been longing for another sequel for years it does show some good optimism for the new instalment.
Even though it received an audience screening luckily not many details have been spilt to ruin it for us, especially when this sort of movie thrives upon guessing who the killer might be.

Friends Together Again?

Back in 2007 work began on a big screen adaptation of the popular HBO series Sex And The City, the following year SATC hit theatres and proved to be a box office hit and a huge financial success.

Ever since the SATC movie was released, cast, production team and fans of the still most watched popular TV show in history, Friends, wondered if they could have the same success SATC had, reuniting Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox-Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer, Matthew Perry and Matt Le-Blanc for the first time since 2004 when the show ended.
