Good news: Johnny Depp has signed on to do another Pirates of The Caribbean movie for Disney. Personally I loved the 3rd one. I still don’t understand how people found it confusing or thought it didn’t make sense. And on top of that, the Malestrom scene at the end was one of the coolest things I’ve seen in a movie in a long time. Looking forward to part 4.
Bad news: I Am Legend is getting a prequel… seriously. “The prequel will chronicle the final days of humanity in New York before a man-made virus caused a plague that left Smith’s character the lone survivor among a mutated mob in the city.” Obviously this is the only way they can make money off of this, because if you’ve seen I Am Legend, you know how it ends, so they had to have a way to bring Will Smith back for another. I am not looking forward to this at all, how about we go back and make an I Am Legend movie that is completely faithful to the book, no retarded CG monsters that look like they were made in 1986, no other survivors (that we know of) and put in the real backstory about the dog. “The Omega Man” didn’t get it all right either so why not actually make an adaptation of the book instead of just some hollywood movie about being the last man on earth. I guess when a movie makes as much money as this one did there was bound to be another one. I’m sure I’ll end up catching it on DVD, but certainly won’t pay to see it in theaters.
