Welcome to another edition of Newsbites with a roundup of some of the news, gossip, new posters, pics from the movie world direct from the World Wide Web.
Thesedays if there’s going to be another movie from a franchise thats not had a movie for years and when talk starts of making another movie from that franchise, these days it’ll either be a remake/reboot or its going to be a 3D movie. So the lastest franchise is GREMLINS 3. The movie is according to Marketsaw in development but the talk is all speculation, but watch the internet and press as rumours get out of hand.
Who will direct it? Joe Dante who made the previous 2 is counting himself out and I dont blame him.

STAR TREK 2 TO BE MORE BAD FOCUSED
From what Cinematical have learned from Orci & Kutzman the writers of the Star Trek reboot, the new movie will focus on the bad guys. At the recent Screenwriters Guild Kutzman said to fellow writers. “Because while [in the first one] the villain serves to bring the crew together, the second one I think has to be a true challenging of what that family is about. That is why Wrath of Khan was so amazing. Khan tested each one of them and ultimately asked for the ultimately sacrifice, and that is why that movie held up so well.”
With the oscar nominations just around the corner your mind might wander to why the pair are talking about movie 2 now as they are possible winners for the recent remake? continue reading
