We've talked about the James Cameron-produced Fantastic Voyage remake a few times before. Last we heard, then first-in-line director Roland Emmerich was bowing out because of his workload on 2012. Now news has bubbled up that Paul Greengrass is in talks to direct it (The Bourne Miniaturisation)?

Sequel news is cranking out apace, with a new Godzilla announced by Legendary Studios and Warner Bros. As the production company behind The Dark Knight and the upcoming Jonah Hex, Inception and Chris Nolan's Superman re-re-reboot, I urge you to be excited. Anyway, say what you like about it, I got a guilty-pleasure kick out of Emmerich and Devlin's 1998 Godzilla .

20th Century Fox have convinced Will Smith to return (presumably with a big fat cheque) for not one but two Independence Day sequels to be shot back to back, and the strangest sequel news has to be a belated follow-up to Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. With Paul Newman's character (apparently) dead at the end of the film and Newman himself having passed on a few years back, that's going to be interesting... Sam Shepard is set to star.

Screenwriter David (X-Men, Ginger Snaps beat you to it. And anyway, it wasn't too obvious but John Landis admitted on the DVD extras that's what An American Werewolf in London was about.

Rachel Weisz has been tipped as the next Bond villain and John Forsythe, most famous as Dynasty's Blake Carrington, passed away at 92 this week.

Lastly, go straight and look at The Expendables trailer. Stallone's mercenary action flick looks like an old school, testosterone-sozzled hoot.
