Sequelitis part 6: Get Smart, Lethal Weapon, Pirates Of The Caribbean and Batman

A sequel to the spy spoof hit Get Smart is pretty much confirmed with original lead Steve Carrell reprising his role. As for co-star Anne Hathaway, she previously indicated her desire for a sequel.

Lethal Weapon 5, which was written and should be directed by series creator Shane Black, has apparently been put on the fast track according to potential castmember Columbus Short (Stomp The Yard).

Rumor has it that actor Johnny Depp is being paid 56 million dollars to reprise his Jack Sparrow role in Pirates Of The Caribbean 4. If that’s true, it would make him the highest paid actor in upfront salary.

As expected, the last bit of Batman sequel news was complete B.S., as per screenwriter David S. Goyer.

Blackbeard biopic to be made with a shaky cam

British director Paul Greengrass (the Bourne movies) has added a new film to his list of projects: a movie about the notorious pirate Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, who operated in the Caribbean Sea and the western Atlantic Ocean during the early 18th century.

Written by the Oscar-winning David Franzoni (King Arthur), Blackbeard will be told from the point of view of Lieutenant Robert Maynard, an ex-follower of Blackbeard’s who was later put in charge of his capture. The makers intend this to be the anti-Pirates Of The Caribbean and are aiming for an R rating in the US.
