The Colonel's Bullets - October 5th 2010

Mission: Impossible IV
Mission Impossible IV
is a go with Brad The Incredibles Bird directing Tom Cruise, Ving Rhames and Simon Pegg with Jeremy The Hurt Locker Renner, Josh Lost Holloway and Michael Nyqvist from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as Ethan Hunt's nemesis. Expect it Christmas 2011.

Warner Bros. have hired Zack 300/Watchmen Snyder - to bring Superman back to the big screen. Christopher The Dark Knight Nolan will produce, presumably after he directs his 3rd Batman movie, which he is now confirmed as doing.

Underworld 4
Kate Beckinsale
will reprise her role as Selene in Underworld 4 to begin filming in March, but comic book writer and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski has rewritten an original draft by The Shield's John Hlavin. Producers are currently seeking a director for the film, as well as an actress to play the role of Selene's daughter.

Alien prequel
Production has stalled on Ridley Scott's Alien prequel because Scott wants a $250m budget and a hard "R" rating but Fox wants to give him less money and to be able to present it to a younger audience. Let's hope Sir Ridley won't compromise and walk rather than succumb to Fox's nonsense.
