    Yep, it's on the way. And apparently it's NOT going DTV. At least not as of right now....

    The skinny:

    Directed by Dwight (Free Willy 2, Halloween 4, Marked for Death, Rapid Fire, Murder at 1600) Little

    Starring Johnny Messner, Morris Chestnut, Eugene Byrd, Peter Curtis, Nicholas Gonzalez and even more people you've never head of.

    Sony aims to release it theatrically on 8/27.

    First title: Anaconda 2: The Black Orchid
    Second title: Anacondas
    Third title: Anacondas: The Hunt for the Black Orchid
    Fourth title: Venom (despite the fact that anacondas possess about as much venom as do Care Bears)
    Fifth title: Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid

    I guess they're gonna need some last-minute ADR to turn all the "Black Orchid"s into "Blood Orchid"s, but oh well. I bet it's a schlocky retarded hoot.

    Bad, schmad; I just like seeing movies where people get eaten by giant animals. Is that so wrong?

    Have you heard of the even more intriguing high concept vehicle - Snakes on a Plane?

    Think about it - everything you need to know about a movie all in the title.

    Here is what the potential director, Ronny Yu, had to say: Genius!

    Snakes on a Plane sounds interesting IMO.

    Anaconda 2, well it doesn't.

    Homeland? I've seen Zombie-ism depicted as a mystical force, as a virus, etc...but never as a nationality [​IMG]

    I'm waiting for the "night of the undead zombie snakes on a plane" movie, myself. It won't be as good as Robert Townsends' "Attack of the Street Pimps" - but then, what movie is?

    Throw in Roy Schneider, some bees, and a guy running on fire, and I'm there.

    I liked it more when it was called Jason X...actually, I probably didn't like it more since I hated it. [​IMG]


    High concept films sell so well in Hollywood and usually do so poorly in the rest of the US. Snakes I'm sure did well at pitches because it is so high concept, the setup is immediately clear, the dramatic tension is obvious, the only problem is that they forget that unless they have something else to do with it you effectivly have the screenplay version of a one-hit wonder moment. But of course the producers just figure they can throw some cash at the script and work something up around it.


    Sorry Scott, I can't join in your enthusiasm on these, not unless I found out that by some miracle someone decided to expand on these scenarios and make something truly interesting.

    Actually, Dwight Little directed the 4th halloween movie.

    Rick Rosenthal directed Halloween 2.

    I'd be interested in these only if the acting doesn't suck, and it's fun as a good action movie. Anaconda didn't totally suck, but if they end up like those video store giant snake movies... they're gonna suck...

    I actually really liked Murder at 1600 and Halloween 2. So there's a small chance this film will be slightly less crappy than the first (abiet a small, microscopic chance!!) [​IMG]

    I also quite like Halloween 2, but as Robert pointed out: Dwight Little directed Halloween 4, while Part 2 was Rick Rosenthal (The Birds 2, American Dreamer, Bad Boys (83).

    My mistake.

    I think Halloween 4 is better than Halloween 2 anyways.
