Rumor has it that Vin Diesel is trying to turn Riddick into a multi-part movie platform. It’s still possible, but they’re gonna need to put more effort into story for future flicks.
The final chapter on Star Wars’ life is disappointing, but not surprising. C’mon, this was the guy that gave us Howard the Duck.
I imagine Star Trek will probably go into a coma or hibernation soon, where it will remain dormant in Paramount’s coffers for ten or fifteen years, and then they’ll pull it out, brush it off, and start all over, hopefully with as successful a rekindling as TNG was.
I’d like to see Tarantino start a series. Not just a One Movie In Two Parts kind of thing, a la Kill Bill. Why? He has a good head for epic stories, even if you don’t like his specific stylistic choices for dialogue or cinematography.
I’d love to see some maddened director start a series of action/adventure movies, set in an alternate dimension, that teams up Jeff Bridges’ The Dude and Johnny Depp’s Hunter S. Thompson. They’d be crazy interdimensional warriors seeking to topple an evil alien empire.
