Today in show business news: Schwarzenegger will be robotic again, Guardians of the Galaxy gets more guardians, and Man of Steel is going to be big.
Those crazy Ellison siblings, Megan of Annapurna and David of Skydance, have agreed to each finance a third of the next Terminator film, with Paramount finding a way to cover the rest. Meaning we really might be getting a fifth tale about the Skynet-ravaged world. Arnold Schwarzenegger seems aware of this development, as he said at a press event in Australia yesterday that he would be starring in the film. Which... Do robots age? I mean, everything ages, time is time, but do they age like we do? Because Arnold Schwarzenegger has humanly aged a bit in the last ten years! Just sayin'. Anyway, this isn't really good news or bad news, given that we have no idea yet what the film will be about or anything. But it has to be better than Terminator Salvation, right? Because that thing was a turkey. So that's all you need to do, you little heirling Ellison kids. Just make it better than Terminator Salvation and everyone will consider T5: The Legend of Connor's Gold a success. [Deadline]
John C. Reilly has joined the cast of Marvel's next big franchise hopeful, Guardians of the Galaxy. He'll be playing Rhomann Dey, who is described as "the leader of the Nova Corps on the planet Xandar when the planet was destroyed by the space pirate Zorr." Oof. Rhomann. Xandard. Zorr. Star-Lord. Yondu. Drax the Destroyer. This movie might be a tough sell to outsiders. "Hey want to go see Space Gibberish with me?" "Nah, I think I'm good on all that." Then they turn on the TV and say, "Ohh, Lord of the Rings is on. I love Bilbo!" [Deadline]
