Robert Downey Jr. could be open to 'Iron Man 4' after all

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 1 day, 6 hours ago

Ever since the release of 'Iron Man 3' in 2013, Robert Downey Jr. has been pretty cold on the potential of headlining a fourth solo 'Iron Man' film, even telling publications last month that "I don't think that's in the cards". But it looks as though the stance might be moving.

 

 

Speaking to ABC News on the eve of the release of 'Captain America: Civil War' which sees him return as Iron Man for the sixth time, Robert Downer Jr. says "I feel like I could do one more", which is a big change from 2014's "There isn't one in the pipe. No, there's no plan for a fourth Iron Man".

 

Last week it was revealed that Downey Jr. has signed up to reprise his role in the upcoming 'Spider-Man: Homecoming", which hits cinemas worldwide next July.

Borderlands movie being written by comedian with 'raw' sense of humor

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 2 days, 9 hours ago

In an attempt to match the wacky tone of the game series, Lionsgate has hired a comedian to write the Borderlands film adaptation.

Lionsgate has tapped Canadian comedian Aaron Berg to write the Borderlands movie, pretty much ensuring that the film will mirror Gearbox's hilarious and quirky post-apocalyptic style. Berg's past work includes writing the screenplay for GI Joe 3 and Section 6, and is known for his "raw brand of stand-up comedy."

 

Marvel Studios co-founder and ex-CEO Avi Arad will be heavily involved with the film's production, along with his son Ari. Taking a quick look at the father-and-son duo's track record, I'd say that the Borderlands movie is in great hands. Avi and Ari Arad have extensive experience bringing comic book adaptations to the big screen. After the mega-blockbuster that was George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, everyone wants to get in on the post-apocalyptic genre, and Borderlands could be a tremendously lucrative franchise for Lionsgate.
