KING KONG SEQUEL:
Peter Jackson announced in his regular production diaries at KongIsKing.net that a sequel to King Kong
is already well underway with all of the cast from the first film returning. According to Jackson, they've
had to keep the sequel a secret, but the plans quickly came together while shooting the movie when some
money that Universal was going to use for a third Riddick movie became available. (Essentially, Vin's loss is
our gain!) The sequel will shoot back-to-back with production of the first movie, which just finished principal
photography, with Jack Black, Naomi Watts, and Adrien Brody all returning. Andy Serkis will once again be
performing the motion capture to be used to create King Kong's kin. Over at
http://img-nex.kongisking.net/kong/movies/you can hear Peter Jackson and the cast talk about the
sequel, as well as see some early footage and hear the ideas behind the sequel. Of course, this could be
one of the most elaborate April Fools' pranks ever played, but surely, Peter Jackson wouldn't do something
like that to all his fans, would he? Either way, King Kong is opening on December 14.
LIFE OF PI:
Director Alfonso Cuarón (Harry Potter & and the Prisoner of Azkaban) is in talks to bring Yann Martel's
bestseller 'Life of Pi' to the big screen. When director M Night Shyamalan chose to make "Lady in the
Water" his next film for Warner Bros., Cuarón's agent contacted Fox 2000 Pictures to offer the director's
services for "Pi". Cuaron is currently casting "Children of Men" at Universal. Martel won the Booker Prize
for the novel which follows precocious son of a zookeeper who is raised in Pondicherry, India, where he tries
on various faiths for size, attracting "religions the way a dog attracts fleas." Planning a move to Canada, his
father packs up the family and their menagerie and they hitch a ride on an enormous freighter. After a
harrowing shipwreck, Pi finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean, trapped on a 26-foot lifeboat with a
wounded zebra, a spotted hyena, a seasick orangutan, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard
LOST packed 'em in again for ABC on Wednesday, but it was slower going for the 10 p.m. debut of EYES. Fox
won the night overall in the key adults 18-49 demographic on the strength of 9 p.m.'s AMERICAN IDOL,
which brought in 24.9 million viewers and a 10.6 rating/26 share in the demo, according to Nielsen Media
Research. The network's new 9:30 p.m. comedy "Life on a Stick" (9.5 million, 4.4/11) had little luck in
capitalizing on its lead-in. "Stick" slipped behind ABC's 9 p.m. drama "Alias" (10.8 million, 4.4/11) and
NBC's "The West Wing" (9.9 million, 3.0/7) in total viewers. CBS' "The King of Queens" (9 million, 2.8/7)
was pounded by "Idol" at 9 p.m., but the eye network's fortunes perked up some at 9:30 p.m. with "Yes,
Dear" (9.7 million, 3.5/9).
Thursday belonged to CBS this week. The only show that came close to competing with the eye network's
powerhouse lineup was NBC's 9 p.m. edition of "The Apprentice," which brought in 13.8 million viewers and
6.0 rating/15 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen
Media Research. CBS' opened the night far atop the pack with "Survivor: Palau" (21.1 million, 7.7/21).
ABC's fledgling comedy "Jake in Progress" (5.7 million, 1.7/5) had an uphill climb with back-to-back
episodes at 8 p.m. (5.7 million, 1.7/5) and 8:30 p.m. (5.8 million, 2.1/6), even against repeats of NBC's
"Joey" (7.4 million, 2.9/8) and "Will & Grace" (7.1 million, 3.1/8).
In a recent interview, Marvel CEO Avi Arad, the studio is quite pleased with the new director Matthew
Vaughn taking over Bryan Singer's reigns. “We are incredibly excited about Matthew,” said Avi. “We
love his sensibilities. I thought 'Layer Cake' was incredibly stylish, with a lot of characters. In some ways
he had stylistically the look of 'X-Men,' it was very crisp.” Regarding fitting everyone's stories into this
film with the Dark Phoenix story, Arad said, “It should never be this one story. The main characters are
more important than Jean Grey. This is a bigger story. Everybody’s expecting Dark Phoenix, but Dark Phoenix
would never be the main show. She’ll be one of the characters, that’s it. There are a lot of stories to tell.”
"It’s a very intelligent movie. I think it’s contextually going to be the best. We are so excited.”

Palpatine needs a new apprentice to further his goals of galactic domination, and has turned to reality

Alley, Brian Boling, Heather Harris, Denny Humbard, John & Sarah Mailen, Jeff McClure, Tom Ott, and
Ziggy McMillan. We also recieved help from Trey Stokes and his Pink Five crew, so Pink Five herself
(Amy Earhart) makes a brief cameo!

America of nuclear power and computers. Teamed with Steve Trevor, son of the dashing major she worked
with during World War II, she takes the name Diana Prince - and takes on all kinds of danger from terrorists,
mad geniuses, crooks and even a diabolical rock star while working for America's Inter-Agency Defense
Command. Wonder Woman, we're proud you're on our side!

I'd mentioned a while back that I would remind folks when the stores
would begin taking orders for Dream Police...so this is it.
Dream Police will appear as a one-shot on June 22nd, but Marvel has a
tendency to print to orders, so if you don't order it up front, it may
not be available. Apparently interest is high, so I have a sneaking
suspicion this one may disappear fast.
Basically, the premise of Dream Police -- which has been in the works
for a long time now, and finally seeing print -- is that we all enter
the dreamscape when we fall asleep, and the denizens of said dreamscape
all play their roles...but when someone doesn't do their job, or a
crime against dreamers is committed, the Dream Police come in.
The thing is...the Dream Police are plain clothes detectives and beat
cops who walk, talk and behave like characters out of the Maltese
Falcon, or Dragnet, or Adam 12, that very literal, staccato, clipped
back-and-forth style of dialogue.
So what you've got is a very funny, weird, surreal book that puts these
very noir characters up against the dreamscape...and I'm just pleased
as punch with the result.
Hence, this recommendation. There's no long arc to sign onto, just the
one issue, but it's just a hoot and a half to read. It's fromm Marvel
under the Icon imprint, and I commend it highly to all B5 folks.
