The Host 2 – First look at the new beastie

Posted by LiveFor on September 3, 2009

Here is our first look at the monster from the sequel or prequel to the brilliant Host (Gwoemul).

Filmstalker have the news that the film will be set years before the original story but will have more than one creature.

io9 say that none of the original team who made The Host will be back for this sequel which is a bit of a shame.

All seems a bit weird as that seems to mess with what happened in the first one.

The Random – X-Men: First Class, Captain America, Pirates of the Caribbean 4, The Host remake, The King of Kong, Suicide Squad, Tremors 4, Hellboy 3

In May Gossip Girl, Chuck and The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz let it slip that he was writing a young X-Men spin-off. 20th Century Fox has remained mum, but now Variety has confirmed the project and is reporting that Schwartz declined an offer to direct the film. It will be called X-Men: First Class and will focus on some young mutants at Xavier’s school. Don’t think it will be a prequel think like the comic book of the same name.

The Chronicles of Narnia scribes Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are in negotiations to write the screenplay for Marvel Studios’ The First Avenger: Captain America.

David Cohen on Variety’s Thompson On Hollywood Blog says that Disney is probably planning to release a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film in Digital Disney 3D.

Universal Studios has signed a director to remake Bong Joon-ho’s 2006 Korean monster film The Host. Commercial film director Fredrik Bond will helm the project, based on a script by Smart People scribe Mark Poirier, and Gore Verbinski will produce.

Seth Gordon has a couple of things on the go. The King of Kong remake he’s directing andthe other is Suicide Squad, about a desperate con man, out on the latest of many paroles, who recruits a crew of amateur criminals to rip off the Kentucky Derby. The latter has the same name as a DC comic book but looks like it has nothing to do with that.

According to Cinema Blend Universal are looking at another film in the Tremors franchise, and it’s going to be set in Australia and called Tremors: The Thunder From Down Under.

Quantum of Solace is is being pushed for a number of Oscars, not only Best Editing, but also Best Picture, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Actor.

Rumours are spreading that there could be a Nutty Professor 3.

Jennifer Tilly would like to play the Marvel super-spy, The Black Widow.

Guillermo del Toro spoke to this week. When asked if he’d be willing to give up the “Hellboy” franchise considering the workload he’ll be undertaking once production officially begins on “The Hobbit,” del Toro replied, “I would love to do the third one and finish this incarnation of Hellboy the way we started it, consistent with the way we started it. But, it’s up to them. The reality is that those are not decisions under a director’s control.”
