The Purge 3 is Coming
In an unsurprising move Universal are going to push forward with another sequel to The Purge. The bigger question, at least to me, is where they decide to go with it. While the first movie was a horror movie the sequel veered towards an action movie. I know it seems silly to ask but the tone shift made a huge difference and I’ll be interested to see if they lean towards one or the other. Either way between a resistance and seeing more what the rich do during the purge last time there seems to be a lot of potential. Of course I said that about the first movie and look how that turned out. I’d be just as happy if we found out what the hell happened to Carrie chick who appears for no reason whatsoever.

Magnet to Distribute Horror Anthology XX
After hearing about this earlier this year I’m glad to hear XX found a distributor, particularly one that’s genre-friendly like Magnet. For those not in the know the movie is XX is a horror anthology that will be done by all female directors. Lined up so far are Jennifer Lynch (Captivity, Surveillance), Karyn Kusama (Girlfight, Jennifer’s Body) and Mary Harron (American Psycho). Also listed on the pre-release poster but not in the press release have been the Soska sisters (American Mary) and Jovanka Vuckovic (horror short The Guest). Whether or not the latter two will be participating the variety in styles alone is enough to keep me interested. I’m totally looking forward to this in 2015.

Renner Wants Hawkeye Movie, Lets Make It Happen
And by lets make it happen I mean hope it finally does get off the ground. The character is already established, you have a decent sized star and compared to something like Avengers it could be done relatively cheap. Marvel had a movie with a talking raccoon turn into pure gold, Hawkeye is a license to print money. At the very least it could stop the overplayed Hawkeye jokes we’ve all heard.

Lego Batman Spin Off in the Works
After the Lego Movie was a mega hit I’m surprised it took this long for it to be announced. Regardless with Will Arnett’s Batman being one of the big highlights I’m totally hyped for this news. If for no other reason than to give me a reason to post the song.
