Brendan Fraser may not return for 'Journey' sequel, Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer team up for 'Lightspeed'

Posted on

  • Mike Fleming says Brad Peyton will direct Journey to the Center of the Earth‘s sequel and Brendan Fraser may not return as the film’s star. Aw. No reason to Brendan Fraser clap now. [Deadline]
  • Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer have picked up the possible 3-D Lightspeed, about a pilot who “must take his ship on a perilous journey across the galaxy on the brink of war.” Will likely look something like this. [Variety]
  • Sam Rockwell is in talks for Sweet Baby Jesus, which centers on a man who follows his pregnant teenage girlfriend (British pop star Pixie Lot) to Bethlehem, Md. Kim Cattrall also stars as the girlfriend’s mother, and Bette Midler as an inn-keeper. With a cast this bizarre, I guess we can expect Hanson to play the three wise men? [Deadline]
  • Andy Garcia, Mario Van Peebles, Luke Gross, and Aidan Quinn will star in The Exodus of Charlie Wright, about a billionaire who goes into exile after it’s discovered he’s leading a Ponzi scheme. The Exodus of Bernie Madoff now playing in prisons. [THR]
