Will Smith no more...

Just in case you were still wondering if Will Smith was going to be in Independence Day 2, the answer is no. Director Roland Emmerich has been developing the sequel for a few years, and now it looks like the people of Earth will have to battle the aliens without Smith.  According to Deadline, "Smith informed the studio that he won’t be joining in on a sequel that the filmmakers hope to have in theaters for July 4th weekend, 2016."   Emmerich was prepared for this, and he had James Vanderbilt write two scripts, one of "which takes the battle to the aliens without [Smith's] cocky hero fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller." So there's still a chance that the sequel will happen, and I really hope it does! I think it could be just as fun without Smith involved. I also think the movie would be just as successful.  Do you think they should move forward with the sequels or just give it up? Comment below and remember to enjoy the show!

Philip Seymour Hoffman...

Philip Seymour Hoffman has died, it has been reported.  A personal assistant to the 46-year-old actor is said to have found him dead at 11.30am this morning, a source told the New York Post, who are also reporting that Hoffman was found in the bathroom with a hypodermic needle still in his arm.  The cause of his death is currently unknown, but the chief medical examiner and the New York police department are investigating. My thoughts and prayers go out to his children and family in such a tragic time. You will be missed Mr. Hoffman. R.I.P.

Rescue Rangers....

Disney will be developing a live-action feature film based on the classic 1990's animated series Chip N Dales Rescue Rangers. The plan is to develop it as a live-action and CGI hybrid film.  I grew up watching this cartoon along with several others when animated series were freakin' awesome.  As cool as it is to hear that a movie is getting made, lets face it, most live-action CGI hybrid movie suck. But, they are successful at the box office, so it's no surprise that Disney wants to do it.  All we know about the story of the film at this point is that it will tell an origin story of the duo. I'm not expecting much from the film, but maybe it will turn out better than I think. What are your thoughts? Comment below and let me know. And remember enjoy the show.
