Actress Sigourney Weaver has shared details of her participation in two upcoming major projects - the sequel to "Avatar" and third "Ghostbusters."
Despite the death of the heroine in the film by James Cameron, Weaver confirmed that her character Grace Augustine appears in the following series, which will be removed one by one.
"Do not panic, I'll be back. Jim Cameron said that in science fiction, no one ever dies. He explained to me the next two plots of films. Ready to say that they are extremely wonderful, incredible potential. Now he only has to shoot them"- said the actress during an interview, timed to the release of film "Pursuit", where she played with Taylor Lautner.
In addition, Sigourney said about her participation in trilogy "Ghostbusters", whose shooting will begin next spring (in 2012 and scheduled to work on the project Cameron): "Until I read the script. They called me a couple of times. I know that they rewrite it. Everything I've said it hoped that my son in the film, Oscar, is old enough to be Ghostbusters. Ivan Reitman approved. Besides, I know nothing. I hope that all will be good, as we've already done two remarkable films".
However, American viewers will be able accurately to see the star of "Alien" at the big screen in connection with the "Ghostbusters" in the near future, as the first tape of series studio decided to show, to identify the interest of viewers for the third film franchise.
After several years of talk and rumors of the original Star Novels Dan Aykroyd appeared on the radio program of Dennis Miller and said that "Ghostbusters 3" will start production in spring of next year. The actor added that Bill Murray has not yet agreed to participate in the project but the creators of the third part are making every effort to persuade the intractable artist.
"Yes, we will shoot the film. And, hopefully, with Mr. Murray - said Aykroyd. - At least we hope so. We have a great script".
In March this year Ivan Reitman said: "The script is very good. All the actors read it and were delighted. We are waiting for Bill Murray to read it".
However, if Murray will continue to resist, the project can start and without his involvement. Before this, even out of the question, but now things have changed.
Aykroyd has finally shed some light on the subject of a future film. The story begins with the problems at the main characters - they can’t catch a ghost so quickly as before. So they have to recruit a team of young hunters.
"My hero, Ray went blind in one eye and can no longer drive a" Cadillac " – says Dan. - He has a sore knee, and Igon (Harold Ramis hero) did put on weight and could barely move. We need new blood, and that was constructed plot. We will give it the younger generation. "
Who will star in "Ghostbusters 3" is not reported. "We need three guys and a girl," - says Dan Aykroyd. Dan himself would like to see in one of the roles of the star series "Criminal Minds" Matthew Gray Gubler.
Will the third "Ghostbusters" have a fourth team member Ernie Hudson? In April, the actor, complained that none of the original members did not offer him a place in trilogy.
Director of "Ocean's Eleven" doesn’t stop to amaze the film world. Once he shoots porn star in the title role, then decides to retire, in order to draw, but now he has surpassed himself. Steven Soderbergh is headed by second crew of the film "The Hunger Games."
In recent days on Twitter might find mention of the presence of Steven Soderbergh on the set of "The Hunger Games." Remember, this is an adaptation of the eponymous bestseller Suzanne Collins who composed a trilogy about the harsh world of the future, where teens are forced to take part in a deadly battle.
Director of the project is Gary Ross. Production designer of "The Hunger Games" is Eddie Mills wrote on Twitter: "This weekend we've got Soderbergh! Very cool!"
As the number of exclamation marks rolls over, it seems that Stephen really came to the shooting. But in what capacity? And then tweet illuminator Chris Blackstone helps: "Wow! Just found out that Steven Soderbergh comes to us to lead second crew! "
Sources of Playlist blog confirmed the rumors: Soderbergh and really helps Gary Ross to shoot "The Hunger Games." But again, all is not as sudden as it seems from the outside. Stephen and Gary are actually old friends. Soderbergh has produced one of the best films of Ross "Pleasantville". Another link was Philip Messina, costume designer of "The Hunger Games", who worked on many films with Soderbergh - "Traffic," "Solaris," "Erin Brockovich" and Danny Ocean's trilogy.
Given that the movie should be in theaters for 22 March next year, Soderbergh's decision to help his friend is very correct. Stephen is famous for his ability to work very quickly. Like Matt Damon said, while working on the "Contaminated", Soderbergh is mounted a picture and in 20 minutes has shown amazing material, which has been shooting for the whole day. Generally Damon sometimes talks too much, for what Soderbergh at the recent Comic-Con convention has called him a 14-year old girl.
The attractiveness of such commercial project as "The Hunger Games" for a number of snobs instantly increased. And let the second work crew does not affect the overall perception of the film, the degree of expectation of the project has actually increased.

Robert Downey Jr. for a time left the film set of "The Avengers" in New Mexico and visited Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood, where in a joint interview with director Jon Favreau spoke about both parts of the movie "Iron Man" and a looming on the horizon, the third part of the franchise, which will shoot director Shane Black.
Downey Jr.: Here's what I want to say at the outset. The most difficult question about the "Iron Man 3" is to persuade Jon Favreau to star in the film.
Favreau: If in the third part there will be not Frick, I will not participate too. If Happy Hogan will not turn in Frick, I, again, will not participate (Frick - alter-ego of Happy Hogan, a friend of Tony Stark). That's what happens with Hogan - he will marry Pepper Potts
Downey Jr. : Wait, you want both...?
Favreau: I want romantic scene with Pepper Potts (I'll be back) and I want to turn into a Freak.
Downey Jr.: Negotiations have already begun, and since then I agree with every point of the contract. Shane ... all so interesting. The fact is that when we were working on "Iron Man 2," we happened to John was a hitch - just could not figure out type of bond between scenes. In short, hung. I say, "Come on, we'll consult with Shane." We call, I told him, "Hey, Shane, we have no money," and he "Bring me some salmon and blueberries." In general, he helped us to come up with a couple of scenes then. And now it is something like the life cycle, and now Shane will direct the third "Iron Man" and asks: "And when we talk to John?" And let John now helps.
Favreau: I love this franchise, and I'm a big fan of Shane, and I hope that what I can – I’ll help, because I want the project to grow and develop. When the choice finally fell on Shane, I said, "Super, it will be interesting." Especially when you consider that the third part will be very difficult to remove any director because of the "Avengers" - in "Iron Man 3" action takes place after the events in "The Avengers."
Downey Jr.: And, again, the hardest thing in "Iron Man 3" - is to determine daily fees of Favreau. It will be gigantic. And be sure, they will pay it to him.
Finally, Downey said that after 6 weeks of work on the set of "Avengers", he did not face any problems that usually arise from him during the filming of other projects.
Downey Jr.: Well, I hate all (laughter). I do not mean fellow actors and Joss. I mean, that, looking at the prepared scene, used to say:" It is absolutely impossible, we can’t shoot, it's horrible. I can name you a dozen pictures, which was something like that, I refuse". Usually, I start the morning of my working day - I protest against what subscribed. Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that I came to New Mexico in the usual frame of mind, thinking: "How are they going to cope with all these clowns? One - dressed from head to toe, the second - smashing everything around, but about the poor Mark Ruffalo generally keep quiet. "And what happened? For the past 6 weeks we do a project and I have to say that Joss Whedon has everything under control. He is damn clever and cool. And the film will be cool. I can not believe what I just said that! I never believed in this project, but now think it will be a bomb.
Dinosaurs once again attracted the attention of Steven Spielberg. Recently, the director met with screenwriter of "Thor" Mark Protasiewicz and discussed the possibility of extending the franchise of "Jurassic Park."
Heroes go for 85 million years ago, when Earth still roamed the dinosaurs. Perhaps the director had already figured out how to revive interest in these creatures on the big screen, but Universal Studios said that the screenwriter for the project has not yet been chosen.
Mark Protasiewicz is familiar with Steven Spielberg since work on the remake of Korean hit "Oldboy." In 2008, the director had planned to put his version of the famous movie with Will Smith in the title role. However, the producers could not solve the problem with the rights to stage, which eventually led to stopping the project.

Film with a budget of $ 63 million in worldwide box office collected 914 million and raised the special effects in movies to a new level. The sequel, released in 1997, earned 618 million. The third film Spielberg did not shoot, limiting producers' functions. Joe Johnston completed the trilogy with fees 368 million dollars.
With the advent of the format 3D, Spielberg got the idea to revive the dinosaurs with all the advances of modern technology.
Spielberg is now finalizing the first part of a planned trilogy of Tintin. Further, the director is going to make a film about Abraham Lincoln.
It remains to add that "Jurassic Park 4" existed in 2007, at least in the form of a script.
The founder of Miramax Studios and The Weinstein Company Harvey Weinstein has mentioned in an interview on MTV, that the fifth part of the "Scream" is quite possible, despite weak performance in the American box office of the last picture of franchise.
"I'm sure that Wes Craven will work on sequel. International box office is very good. We will collect more than $ 100 million. Now there are 90, with 5-6 large territories and many smaller ones. We expect to take the bar in 110 million", - said the legendary producer.
Although, in general, he noted that fees could be more, but this result did not become a catastrophe.
"Scream 4" was launched in April 2011 and became the first painting in the saga of a 12-year hiatus. In the center of the story - the main character of the previous tapes Sidney Prescott, returning to her hometown Woodsboro, where there was a series of murders, famous all over the country. Being on a small home in a book promotional tour, Sidney with her appearance is prompting a new wave of murders.
The previous three "Scream" once became hits. The first two series have overcome in the U.S. box office cash bar in a hundred million dollars, charges of trilogy stopped at around 89 million. But given the modest budget, combined with worldwide total sales charges result of the tape also looks quite impressive.

A remake of Joe Dante's movie "Piranha," shot by Alexander Azha, was released in August 2010 and became a hit, collecting $80 million in $25 million budget.
The movie was about the incident on Lake Victoria. The earthquake woke the sleeping soundly very ancient and bloodthirsty piranhas. Their first victim is a fisherman in the performance stars "Jaws" Richard Dreyfuss.
The popularity of painting so inspired the producers that they have announced the launch of the sequel a few days after the start of the film in worldwide box office. Instead Azha has been appointed Frenchman director of the film trilogy, the author of "Jaws" John Gulazher. Producer Mark Canton did not preclude the appearance of characters, it would seem, had eaten in the first film in the sequel, the story will focus on water park Wilderness Waters, which also got carnivorous fish.
The world premiere of tape is scheduled for September.
2). Playwright and author of the film "In Bruges" Martin McDonagh picked up the actor's team for his new project "Seven psychopaths". Starring in the film is played by Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke.
Farrell will embody the image of a writer who is in search of inspiration for his text "Seven psychopaths." Eventually he gets involved in a scam to the abduction of dogs with his eccentric friends (Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken). And one of the animals they manage to steal from a local mafioso (Mickey Rourke). It is noteworthy that the star of "The Wrestler" and the second "Iron Man" is famous for his devotion to the dogs.
Among other projects of Rourke is the sequel to "The Expendables" in which actor dies on the job, and the plot will revolve around rescue his daughter.
