Rapidfire cyberpunk newsflash straight from the movies, safety belts and enema diving kits in action!
ALIENS: No more Alien(s) sequels, at least that’s what industry expert Cecelia from filmindustrybloggers.com sez, basically because almost all scripts are so full of clichés. BABYLON AD: IO9 has a few new clips from the movie. Just occurred to me that the Mélanie Thierry (the psychic girl) was also a key character in Julien Leclercq’s suberb medical cyberpunk SF, Chrysalis. GHOST IN THE SHELL 2.0: According to Twitch, there’s going to be a Blu-Ray version of the movie that features both the graphically updated 2.0 and the original versions and English dub will be included only on the original.
DEADLAND: New post-ap movie where Florida slides into the ocean and main character Sean Kalos crosses the radiation-plagued land to find his missus – no zombies and no gorgeous flesh-eating this time. ROBOCOP: Officially confirmed, it’s going to be Darren Aronofsky (Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain) who’s gonna direct the remake. THE ROAD: A new post-apocalyptic movie featuring Viggo Mortensen (with a son) and a bunch of cannibals hot on their trails. TERMINATOR 4 – SALVATION: While rumor has it that Linda Hamilton will be featured in all three Terminator movies currently in (various states of) production, Helena Bonham Carter is definitely cast and she sez her character is a very, very bad person. TR2N: Original screenwriter Steve Lisberger’s script that’s been worked on for years has been ditched.
