News Bites: Wolverine! More X-Men! More Apes! More Daleks!

Here’s a selection of all the latest news bites from around the web for the week ending 1st July 2012.

  • Filming for The Wolverine kicks off in August in Sydney under the direction of Copland’s James Mangold.
  • Neil Marshall is in talks to helm Dracula themed film The Last Voyage Of The Demeter for Millennium films.
  • Dawn of The Planet Of The Apes has a director and a screenwriter.  Rise Director Rupert Wyatt will return working from a script by Bourne writer Scott Z Burns.
  • Whilst I really have no love for this reboot at all, Samuel L Jackson has joined Joel Kinnerman, Hugh Laurie, Gary Oldman and Abbie Cornish in the cast of Robocop.  Great cast.  Bad, bad idea.
  • Daleks will return in the opening episode of Doctor Who’s 7th Season entitled “Asylum Of The Daleks”.
  • X-Men First Class: Part 2 will be released June 2014.  Always good to get a release date before you have a script, director or confirmed cast.
