Friday the 13th: The Follow-Up
The Friday the 13th sequel is already gearing up.  Damian Shannon & Mark Swift who wrote the original will be writing the 2nd film in the rebooted franchise (the 13th overall), just don't call it a sequel.  The duo say this won't be a sequel as much as a follow-up.  Although no one knows what that means, to me it seems like they're hinting at going with an all new cast.  Movie is looking at a late 2010 release.  (WeAreMovieGeeks )

Barrymore to Direct Eclipse?
The 2nd Twilight movie isn't even filming yet, but EW says that Summit is already looking for a new director to tackle the 3rd film in the series.  This time up: Drew Barrymore.  You may remember all the buzz around Twilight for being the highest grossing film directed by a woman.  But when Summit went with Chris Weitz for the sequel, New Moon, people through a fit as it was somehow sexist.  Well looks like Summit is trying to give another woman a chance.  The real question is can Barrymore direct?  Her directorial debut, Whip It, hasn't come out yet, so it remains to be seen why Summit would even trust her with their hit series.

New Trek Pics
New Star Trek pics are up over at Totalfilm!

New Wolverine Pics
And there's a new poster and promo pics for Wolverine up at various sites, but Slashfilm has collected them.  I have to agree with Slashfilm in that the Poster is complete crap.
