Andy Serkis Says He “Can’t Wait” To Direct ‘Venom 2’
  |  @   |  

Venom may have been one of the strangest and most widely panned of Spider-Man-Less spinoffs, but it was such a huge success that Sony plans to follow it up with a sequel, plus additional spinoffs. However, with Venom director Ruben Fleischer unable to commit to directing the sequel because of his responsibilities helming Zombieland: Double Tap, the studio had to find a replacement for Venom 2 and it looks like Venom 2 has got its sticky hands on one — Andy Serkis to be precise.

According to new reports, Serkis will be directing the sequel.

When a film is able to amass an $855 million worldwide box office, you can be sure that the studio behind it will be interested in investing in a sequel. And that is what is happening with Venom. Though the film was panned by critics, Venom 2 is in the works.

Kelly Marcel, who co-wrote the script for the first film with Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner, will be back to pen the sequel. However, director Ruben Fleischer won’t be back since he is busy working on Zombieland 2. More on the report below.

Movie Review: Saving Mr. Banks
  |  @   |  

Saving Mr. Banks
Director: John Lee Hancock
Writers: Kelly Marcel, Sue Smith
Cast: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, Colin Farrell, B.J. Novak
Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 125 Minutes
Release Date: December 20, 2013

Directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), Saving Mr. Banks centers on the life of Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson), shifting between 1907 with her childhood in Queensland, Australia, the 1961 negotiations with Walt Disney (Tom Hanks), and the subsequent making of Mary Poppins.

While in California for filming, Travers has flashbacks to her difficult childhood in Australia with her sweet but self-destructive father (Colin Farrell), the inspiration for her story’s patriarch, Mr. Banks.

Some film critics, like the immortal Leonard Maltin, have called Saving Mr. Banks “a charming and heartwarming piece of entertainment, highlighted by a handful of superior performances.” I, on the other hand, would call it a nauseating, sentimental piece of corporate propaganda about an anti-Semite and a very British – and very bitchy – author who may or may not be a crazy person.
