Could 2014 be the year of the Kevin Costner comeback? The actor, who was in huge hits in the late eighties and early nineties, wore out his welcome with pictures like 'The Postman,' but after appearing in this year's 'Man of Steel,' he's got five starring roles lined up for next year, including 'Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,' '3 Days to Kill' and now 'Draft Day,' which just released its first trailer and poster.
Though it's been rumored for a while, Sony has made steps to get a 'Bad Boys 3' off the ground and is looking to hire a writer to pen a third entry in the franchise. That doesn't mean that Will Smith, Michael Bay or Martin Lawrence will return, but it's a start.
One of 2012's most pleasant surprises was Christopher McQuarrie's 'Jack Reacher,' which starred Tom Cruise as the titular bad ass. As it was based on a series of books by Lee Child it seemed ready to spawn a franchise, but the film's modestly-hyped Christmas release suggested that Paramount didn't know if they had a winner. The film was a modest success, and now Paramount is working on developing a sequel.
Last we heard, three-time Oscar winner Jack Nicholson wasn't totally retired, but the 76-year old had become so choosy about his work that it's possible 2010's 'How Do You Know' could be his last feature film. Well, not if Tom Cruise has anything to say about it, as he's wooing Jack to star along with him in 'El Presidente' for his 'Edge of Tomorrow' director Doug Liman.
The new studio model for sequels is to call your release date before you have a cast or crew, and often before you have a script. The latest film to get dated ahead of anything else substantial is 'Insidious 3,' which production company FilmDistrict previously announced would be happening after 'Insidious Chapter 2' opened to $41 million.
Though the franchise was successful under Pierce Brosnan's run, when Daniel Craig became James Bond the series got a new life and a rebooting, with 'Casino Royale' starting just as Bond received his license to kill. The series has done a lot of work to integrate previous Bond lore with its more modern approach (and recently re-introduced Miss Moneypenny), but now it seems the path is clear for Bond's most famous nemesis Blofeld to return to the series.
Considering that 2015 is looking like one of the biggest movie years in the history of cinema, it's surprising that studios aren't as afraid of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' as they were of 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.' Currently 'Episode 7' will open December 18, the same day as 'Warcraft,' and now 'Mission: Impossible 5' has announced that they'll be hitting theaters a week later on Christmas Day.
