The Rock-itt : September 2009
- The box-office smash X-Men Origins: Wolverine sequel has been green lighted with Aussie Hugh Jackman set to wear the claws once more. The next film is said to take on the very popular comic storyline of Wolverine in Japan with Oscar award winning screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie bought in to pen the script. - In 1979 Ridley Scott directed one of the greatest Sci-Fi movies of all time with Alien, and 30 years later he has signed on to do it again. Scott has been announced as the Director of the Alien prequel (currently known as Alien 5, but it will get a better title than that down the track) and will deal with the events in the lead up of spaceships collision with the alien planet. - Award winning director James Cameron's (Terminator, Aliens, Titanic) next 3D epic titled 'Avatar' will hit cinemas in Australia on the 17th December. The film starring Australia's Sam Worthington was originally rumoured to have the biggest budget of all time, while those rumours have since been found untrue, there is no doubting this will be one of the best movies in years and just recently the film's first poster has been released with a trailer soon to follow. - With the sudden passing of Australian actor Heath Ledger last year, many wondered whether his final film 'The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassuss would ever be seen, but after minor changes to the script and support of a strong willed cast and crew it was completed and will be released in Australia on the 29th October. Ledger passed away before his scenes were filmed, but after, friends, Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell stepped in to fill the role. Early screenings of the film are gaining rave reviews. - After years of failed attempts it finally seems that a biopic of legendary rocker, Jimi Hendrix is finally up and running. This film has been discussed for a while and without production even starting, names such as musicians Lenny Kravitz and Andre Benjamin (Outkast) floated as possible stars. - In Australian news the much-anticipated Australian comedy, 'Charlie and Boots' will be released on 3rd September nationwide. The comedy features Paul Hogan (of Crocodile Dundee fame) and Shane Jacobson (also known as Australia's favourite plumber, Kenny) as father and son who fulfil a lifetime ambition by travelling around Australia, and promises plenty of laughs.
