INDIANA JONES 5

Steven Spielberg has recently talked about filming Indiana Jones 5.  But he also talked about filming his first musical (West Side Story).  Most assumed that the latter would come first, but now THR reports that Steven Spielberg’s next movie is Indiana Jones.

Spielberg has finished up on Ready Player One, which means that Jones 5 could be closer than expected.  There has been talk of Spielberg showing interest in having Chris Pratt appear in the film in some capacity.  One thing is for sure, Spielberg has his work cut out for him righting the unholy turd that was Indy 4.

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT

In the above clip, Tom Cruise exhibits the exact opposite of Walter_B Syndrome by fucking up his ankle at a 60 degree angle, then continuing to film.  This is the kind of thing you have to respect Tom Cruise for.

Cruise was ordered to take nine weeks out of filming, but turned up seven weeks later, two weeks earlier than planned.  The sixth film deals with the ‘Fallout’ of the Mission team being dismantled.  Hopefully they continue on the anti-status quo theme and feed off growing populism.  Worked for Bourne.

THE SHINING

Doctor Sleep is King’s 2013 novel follow-up to The Shining and follows a now forty-something Danny Torrance struggling with the same demons of anger and alcoholism that plagued his father.  The project is being turned into a film, now, Mike Flanagan is set to direct.

Danny sobers up and uses his gift to help the dying at a hospice, only to establish a psychic connection with a young girl who shares his extreme abilities and who is being targeted by a sinister group who wants to exploit them both.

THE HUMANITY BUREAU

Nicolas Cage has got yet another movie for you, coming down the pipe. The Humanity Bureau gets a trailer.

Outline:

In the near future war, climate, and political agendas have robbed America of its lush resources. Seeds rarely grow into vegetation, the water is mostly polluted, and people are obligated to work hard to earn their keep. Noah Kross (Nicolas Cage) is an agent of the humanity bureau, a government agency that determines a person’s productivity, Kross’s reports are key factors in deciding who stay in America and who is deported to New Eden.

The reliable Kross is tripped up when he comes in contact with a woman farmer and her teenage son. He inexplicably delays sending in his report so the boy can perform at a musical recital the following day. This act of minor insubordination sends up major red flags back at the bureau and catches the attention of Kross’s higher ranking superiors. The action takes Kross, the woman and her son from the deserts of Nevada to the snow-capped mountain peaks of Canada.

It’s Cage… how can it suck?

    *I didn’t hate Indiana Jones 4. I know a lot of people hated it but I liked it . Not my favorite of the franchise but it was okay IMO. I think a lot of people were expecting “The Second Coming” cuz they had to wait for so long for a sequel but I believe had the film come out say in the early nineties, it might have enjoyed a better reception. I still could have done without Shia LaPuke of course & a couple of other things.

    * I think Tom Cruise has become like the american Jackie Chan..LOL
    You got to respect the guy for that stunt. I’m still bitching about a paper cut I got yesterday.

    * Nicolas Cage

      Yeah I always thought the hate for Indy 4 was a little overblown. It’s not my favorite Indy film but it remembers the spirit of the original 3 more often than not. I also think it would’ve been better received in the early 90s. (And truthfully a lot of it would’ve probably been right at home in Temple or Crusade.)

    Hasn’t the IMF been dismantled in almost every MI movie?

      Only in the last two. Hunt does go rogue in 1 and 3, though.

    The way Disney has been going by things lately, I suspect Indiana Jones will be searching for some feminist artifact. The Hunt for the First Pussy-Hat, or something.
