Movie News Mash 31

MTV News caught up with actor Bruce Willis during the "Cop Out" press junket and they brought up some of his other works including "Die Hard" and "Unbreakable." Willis then stated that a fifth "Die Hard" is in the works as well as an "Unbreakable 2."

According to the Arrow in the Head section of JoBlo, Wesley Snipes is interested in doing "Blade 4." Snipes specified that he was interested but would only do it if the script was right.

Last year we heard some news stating that the plan was to go ahead with another trilogy, a set of spin-off prequels based on the character of Deacon Frost. Frost, played by Stephen Dorff, was the feature villain of the first "Blade" movie where he met his end.

David Goyer, writer of all the "Blade" films and director of the third one, revealed last year that there was some talk behind the scenes about possibly doing another "Blade" movie. He didn’t specify any details and with his other major work lined up with bigger movies like "Batman 3," I don’t know how involved he'd be in a new "Blade."

Back in October, "Lethal Weapon" scribe Shane Black was hired to write the script for a new "Doc Savage" film. Variety now confirms that Black will direct the film from a screenplay he is penning with Anthony Bagarozzi and Chuck Mondry, while Neal Moritz will produce.

Columbia co-president Matt Tolmach said: "Doc Savage is an icon, a character with limitless possibilities. We have had a great experience working with Neal to bring another classic character of the era, the Green Hornet, to a new generation of fans, and we think he and Shane make the ideal team to bring Doc Savage back to the big screen."

Black made his directing debut with "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" in 2005.

One of the most popular characters in the pulps of the 1930s and ’40s, Doc Savage was also popularized on radio, film and TV. Trained since birth to be nearly superhuman in every way, Doc Savage uses his skills and powers to fight evil all over the world.
