Didn't see it in the OP, so I'll mention it here. M. Night Shyamalan's next movie looks pretty interesting. Yeah Lady in the Water sucked, but maybe he'll go back to being good.

The movie is called The Happening.
The premise of the film is about a large-scale, cataclysmic environmental crisis that turns into a struggle by mankind to overcome nature. Imagine if nature was sick of our polluting ways and decided to restore Earth's natural balance by wiping us out. Imagine if we were powerless to do anything about it.

Plants starting emitting airborne neurotoxins that cause people to kill themselves. It gets pretty graphic if the script stays the same.

Here's a script review

Mark Wahlberg just got announced as being the main character

The studio has carved out plans to release the film worldwide on Friday, June 13, 2008.

    80% of these films will never see the light of day

    of the 20% that do, 19% will be total ass

    my math is flawless

    could start a bracket betting pool on what movies actually make it to the screen, but it would just end up an excercise in futility

    I'm still mostly sad and partly relieved that the Revenge of the Nerds remake got shelved

    no it is not also a leg, it is just a gun

    you cannot walk on a gun

    a gun is not a leg

    I mean even a peg leg has more stability than a gun

    and really

    why the leg

    you couldn't have put it on your arm

    at least that's plausible

    The fact that you're asking for plausibility in a movie that replaces body parts with weapons really, really disturbs me.

    Just like to point out that I could only find 13 movies in that list that werent sequels, remakes or adaptations of comics, books, manga or video games. And several of them sound really bad... :(

    10,000 B.C.:
    Director Roland Emmerich ("Independence Day") has wrapped on this pre-historic epic that follows a young mammoth hunter's journey through uncharted territory to secure the future of his tribe. Starring Camilla Belle ("When a Stranger Calls") and Steven Strait ("Sky High"). Expected release date: December 14, 2007.

    Chassis:
    This film is best described as a "Days of Thunder" meets "Star Wars" pod-racing culture. Several members of the visual effects team from "Star Wars: Episode III" are on board for this highly anticipated film.

    Fanboys:
    This dramady is about 4 friends who at the wish of a dying friend travel across country to George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch to see "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace". The film stars Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars") and Sam Huntington ("Superman Returns") with director Kyle Newman.

    Game Boys:
    This fun film from the minds at Walt Disney Pictures is about two 30-something gamers who are recruited by the government to battle aliens who have come to life from a video game. Jerry Bruckheimer ("Pirates of the Caribbean") is slated to produce this film.

    Grindhouse:
    This two part horror flick (2 - 60 minute films in one) from writer/directors Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino. The film stars Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson , Rose McGowan and horror legend Tom Savini. Expected release date: April 6, 2007

    Magdalena:
    This film will follow a woman named Patience who discovers that she is descended from a long line of female warriors who trace thier origin to Mary Magdalene.

    The Reaping:
    Thousands of years ago there was a series of bizarre occurrences that many believed to have been the Ten Biblical Plagues. No one thought they could happen again. Until now.

Set for release on March 30, 2007.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is rumored to be starring. Possible 2007 release.
