Riding his train of popularity, Steve Carrell hops on board another comedy, a remake of an Argentine film, A Boyfriend for My Wife. Kind of self-explanatory. . . . The immensely popular comic series (well, sort of–at least for the seventies) Iron Fist is getting a film version, and Angelina Jolie dips her feet in the romance/war drama genre again in an as-of-yet untitled Serbian/Bosnian love story. And if that doesn’t get you crying, don’t weep too hard fans of the 1980s (all 12 of you): the Jaden Smith version of Karate Kid will see a sequel.
Other notable sales include:
–Morgan Creek will take on the Tupac story. Antoine Fuqua is set to direct.
–A 3-D film chronicling the Battle of Midway during WWII.
–Piranha 3-D = sequel. No word yet on what dimension it’ll be in. . . .
— The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are returning to their live-action renditions. Hopefully less retro muppet-like than the last version.
–Take that super-cool Jesse Eisenberg Facebook movie: Google has its own story hitting the screen with Googled: The End of the World As We Know It.
