News Update: Will we see Monster's Inc: The Prequel?

  • This is one movie I'm already looking forward to; Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close which is based on the novel by Jonathan Safran Foer.  The cast already includes Tom Hanks, Sandra Bullock and newcomer and Jeopardy! winner Thomas Horn and will now add John Goodman to the list.  Stephen Daldry will direct the film. His previous three films have all been nominated for Best Picture and Best Director at the Oscars.  This is bodes extremely well for this film as well.
  • Upcoming Pixar is reporting that the sequel to Monsters Inc., 2 might actually be a prequel.  The film is set to release on Nov 2, 2012.
  • Jodie Foster will be joining the cast of Neil Blomkamp's next feature Elysium.  She joins Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley who was previously in District 9, which still remains one of the best sci-fi thrillers that takes place on Earth in recent years.  It is rumored that this film also could be another sci-fi feature.  We can't wait.
  • And sadly, Pete Postlethwaite, seen this past year in both Inception and The Town, has passed away from cancer at 64.  A fine actor with a commanding screen presence, he shall be missed.
