The Weekly Ketchup: Two-Face Not in Next "Batman," Lucas On "Indy 4," "Grindhouse" May Get Chopped, And More!

by | April 13, 2007 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, the villainous Two-Face will most likely be saved for a future "Batman" sequel, George Lucas gave some insight into the upcoming "Indiana Jones 4" project, and the lackluster opening of "Grindhouse" has the studio scrambling to repackage it.

Also, Tom Hanks is set to get even richer for the "Da Vinci Code" prequel, and we get our first look at Bumblebee after his makeover for the big screen "Transformers." Read on.

This Week’s Most Popular News:

No Two-Face Against "The Dark Knight"?

A while back we heard that the Harvey Dent character would be appearing in "The Dark Knight" (he’ll be played by Aaron Eckhart) but that his villainous alter ego (Two-Face) would be saved for the NEXT sequel. Looks like we might have some confirmation on that…

Lucas Spills a Few "Indy 4" Beans

No, nothing as juicy as, say, an actual movie title, but if, like me, you’ve been salivating over the prospect of a fourth "Indiana Jones" adventure for what feels like twenty years, you might be interested in what producer George Lucas had to say recently.

Will "Grindhouse" Split Up and Hit Theaters Again?

As far as the overseas release plans for "Grindhouse" are concerned, the Weinsteins were always planning to split the flick into two and sell ’em as solo movies. And now with the underwhelming opening weekend for the double feature behind us, it looks like they might want to do the same thing over here.

Hanks to Get Biggest Payday Ever for "Da Vinci Code 2"?

Sony was already warming up the "Da Vinci Code" follow-up when the flick opened to huge box office numbers, but the questions we still need to know are A) Who’s directing, and B) Is Tom Hanks coming back?

First Full Look at the Bumblebee "Transformer"

So far you’ve only glimpsed Autobots and Decepticons in fleeting, as they smash their way through clips and trailers or loom in the distance of production stills. Now peek at the first detailed visage of a "Transformer" online!

Side by side no more?
