Disney has just hired David DiGilio, whose only previous feature film credit was writing the Paul Walker dog movie Eight Below, to write the next chapter in the saga. But will it actually make it to production?

and apparently Charles Dance is in this too. Dude is making a comeback. Cox alludes to Game of Thrones, and with the success of that, this flick should get a look from folks who may not normally show interest.

Well I believe that is the first time any plot details have been released. Sounds good. AND, it's got 100% more Fichtner than other Fichtner free movies. Look, the guy is ALWAYS good.Variety is reporting that Diego Luna (pictured right; Y Tu Mama Tambien) is in talks to sign up for active duty in the flick. If the deal is sealed he'll be joining the previously announced Sharlto Copley, Jodie Foster, Matt Damon, Wagner Moura, Alice Braga and William Fichtner in this upcoming sci-fi thriller that tells the tale of what happens when a battle ensues between aliens and humans for the right to colonize another planet.

HBO Plans Six Seasons of AMERICAN GODS for 2013
HBO started kicking the tires of Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods back in April as a possible series to be produced by Playtone’s Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, with Gaiman on board as writer and executive producer. Goetzman revealed details this weekend to THR: Playtone is planning six season of 10-12 hourlong episodes with a budget of $35-40 million each season. American Gods will premiere in 2013 at the earliest.
That’s a lot of money for a weekly series — minimally $3 million per episode, more than most broadcast shows. Playtone is used to the Daddy Warbucks treatment from HBO — the network reportedly budgeted The Pacific around $225 million (over $20 million per hour).
The listing has American Gods at 624 pages. Under a six-season plan, that’s about 8-11 pages per episode, which totals up to Not Enough Material. (I am not familiar enough with either property to know if the spinoff novel Anansi Boys can be folded into the story.) Given that Gaiman is on as a writer (presumably the head writer), I hope we see all the ideas tossed around in his head and in his notes during and since writing American Gods. Clearly I need to go read the book, though I have a couple years to beat the series premiere.
Speaking of which, I may be cynical, but I believe it is folly to announce a six-season plan so early, even on HBO. Fellow HBO series Carnivŕle also had six seasons in mind, yet was cancelled after two.

Here’s the official synopsis for Bellflower:
Bellflower follows two friends as they venture out into the world to begin their adult lives. All their free time is spent building flame-throwers and weapons of mass destruction in hopes that a global apocalypse will occur and clear the runway for their imaginary gang “Mother Medusa”. While waiting for the world to end, their call to excitement comes unexpectedly when one of them meets a charismatic young woman and falls hard in love. Quickly integrated into a new group of friends, they set off on a journey of betrayal, love, hate, infidelity and extreme violence more devastating and fiery than any of their apocalyptic fantasies.
JOHN CARTER Poster
Here’s the official synopsis for John Carter:
From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
