Weekend Movie News Wrap Up: Mar 9, 2008

Published 7 years ago by , Updated March 9th, 2013 at 1:37 pm,

An old saying says that a week is a long time in politics – well that dude obviously didn’t follow movie news, because a week in film can make or break a career, or in Vic’s case: a DVD player.

It’s once again time for us to fill you in on some of the news stories from the past week that we missed and make sure that you know everything about every film that is currently in production. That is a slight exaggeration, but you see what I’m getting at.

Just keep reading to heighten your Screen Rant experience.

1. Quantum of Solace has apparently had to cancel shooting in Peru. According to MI6.co.uk EON

decided not to film in Cusco because of unpredictable weather conditions that could jeopardize the production team’s work and the group of famous actors that are to take part in the new Bond movie.

2. Variety is reporting that Jerry Bruckheimer is prepping Prince Of Persia: Sands of Time for a mid-June shoot. The film is due to lense in Morocco and it will be helmed by Mike Newell. Disney hopes that the film will launch a new franchise.

3. Entertainment Weekly has published a new picture of Indiana Jones in action. Nuff said!

4. DeNiro and Pacino together again. The Heat stars reunite for the Jon Avnet directed Righteous Kill. Excited? Well check out the teaser trailer on Yahoo. It looks good, however it also looks generic. Time will tell.

And that’s it for this week’s wrap-up!
