Movie News Mash 34

20th Century Fox has released another new character featurette from its upcoming film "Predators."

The featurette below focuses on the character "Isabelle" as played by Alice Braga.

"Predators" is due out on July 9, 2010 and stars Topher Grace, Adrien Brody, Alice Braga, Danny Trejo, Laurence Fishburne, Derek Mears, Brian Steele, Walton Goggins. The film is directed by Nimród Antal.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Rob Letterman has been signed to direct "Stretch Armstrong." Letterman has previously co-directed "Shark Tale" and "Monsters vs. Aliens" for Dreamworks Animation. His first live-action film is “Gulliver’s Travels,” a comedy starring Jack Black that will be released later this year. Additionally, Nick Stoller — the director of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" — has also been signed to rewrite Steve Oedekerk's original screenplay.

The movie adaptation reportedly features Stretch Armstrong as "an uptight spy" who is accidentally exposed to chemicals that change his body and allow him to stretch to previously unimaginable lengths; effectively giving him a new weapon to fight evil while also causing havoc in his everyday life outside of espionage.

"Twilight" star Taylor Lautner is cast to play the title role of the stretchy hero.

Showbiz411 caught up with "Men in Black" director Barry Sonnenfeld who told them that Smith is already signed on and, somewhat surprisingly, Tommy Lee Jones will be returning for the sequel which, as can be assumed with any upcoming blockbuster, will be in 3D.

While I enjoyed the first "MIB" film, the second one felt forced and had weak comedy. Hopefully Etan Cohen’s ("Tropic Thunder") screenplay for "Men in Black 3" will be a significant improvement over that of "MIB2."

It is noted by Showbiz411 that Sony would really like to have this film out by Memorial Day 2011 since it lost "Spider-Man 4" and could could use a good money-maker to replace it. A third "MIB" film could be just that.
