Avengers: Age Of Ultron has released an official synopsis, unveiling in detail some of the finer plot points of the forthcoming sequel.
As well as establishing the general premise, the new synopsis confirms Paul Bettany’s transformation into the Vision, while also stressing the high-stakes nature of Ultron’s fiendish plan…
“When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program,” reads the blurb, “things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance.”
“As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.”
“The team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen, and Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.”
Plenty to get the adrenaline pumping, then… Directed by Joss Whedon, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.
Sony is set to plunder the ‘90s for its next horror remake, with the studio set to breathe new life into slasher caper I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Written by Scream scribe Kevin Williamson, the original was part of the late-‘90s boom in teen slasher movies, bringing in $125 million at the box office and spawning a suitably half-baked sequel.
The story focuses on a group of teens who find themselves stalked by the hook-wielding figure they hit with a car and left for dead during a drunken night out.
According to the report, Oculus director Mike Flanagan will write and produce the remake, although it is unclear whether he will also be occupying the director’s chair.
Sony is thought to be planning this one as a low-budget venture in the vein of Oculus (which only cost $12 million), with the aim being to have it ready for a 2016 release date.
Well, well, well… huge news to bring you this morning, as Deadline is reporting that Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are both set to return for a fifth Bourne film.
Both Damon and Greengrass have attempted to cool speculation concerning a reunion over the last few years, suggesting that the story has run its course, and that there is nowhere left to take the character.
Well, that all seems to have changed, with THR claiming that Greengrass is also in the frame to write the script, should a deal go through as expected.
Universal are also so keen to make this one happen that the film will take the release date reserved for the sequel to The Bourne Legacy, which will now move to the backburner for the next few years.
If everything goes to plan, Damon and Greengrass will be back in the fold soon enough for Bourne 5 to land on 15 July 2016. Keep those fingers crossed…
David Fincher has been discussing why he chose to cast Ben Affleck in Gone Girl, and explains that the actor’s tabloid travails gave him the perfect experience for the role.
“I enjoyed working with him immensely,” says Fincher. “The baggage he comes with is most useful to this movie. I was interested in him primarily because I needed someone who understood the stakes of the kind of public scrutiny that Nick is subjected to and the absurdity of trying to resist public opinion.”
“Ben knows that, not conceptually, but by experience. When I first met with him, I said this is about a guy who gets his nuts in a vice in reel one and then the movie continues to tighten that vice for the next eight reels. And he was ready to play.”
“Actors don’t like to be made the brunt of the joke. They go into acting to avoid that. Unlike comics, who are used to going face first into the ground. Nick is someone who has skated by on charm and has that as a deflection mechanism. And that’s what crucifies him. And Ben got that.”
Affleck has certainly had to fend off more than his fair share of flak over the years, and in that light, he certainly seems like an excellent pick for the role. We’ll get to see all that experience brought to bear when the film opens in the UK on 2 October 2014.
