The Random – xXx 3, del Toro’s Pinnochio, Robotech, The Champions, Monsters of Florence, Battle: Los Angeles

Posted by LiveFor on November 17, 2008

xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, obviously has Vin Diesel returning as the character who I thought died. Rob Cohen returns and it is going to be written by Michael Ferris and John Brancato who wrote Terminator 3. Variety have more on the story.

Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Smallville)are writing the screenplay for Robotech. This is a manga / anime tale of humans reverse engineering the technology of an alien spaceship that crashed into Earth and the alien race arriving to take it all back by force and invade the planet, Lots of giant robots and shouting basically. The Hollywood Reporter have more.

Christopher McQuarrie is set to write both The Monster of Florence and The Champions big screen outing. The Champions was a television series way back in 1968/69 which featured three government agents who were in a plane crash in the Himalayas and were nursed back to health by an advanced civilisation and given amazing abilities.

Blood Disgusting scored the exclusive news that Guillermo del Toro is working on a stop-motion version of Pinnochio together with artist Gris Grimly and The Jim Henson Company.

Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight, Thank You For Smoking) has signed on to star in Columbia Pictures’s big sci-fi action film Battle: Los Angeles. Chris Bertolini’s spec screenplay tells the story of a Marine platoon’s battle against an alien invasion in downtown Los Angeles. Eckhart will play the platoon leader.

James Bond is back and bigger than ever before with “Quantum of Solace” raking in $71 million for its three-day opening weekend. The amount easily shatters the $60M estimates made by the studio, the $40M opening of the previous film “Casino Royale”, and the $47M opening of the previous record holder “Die Another Day” in 2002.
