    MACHETE 2 AND WOLVERINE 2 ON THE GO


    Here's some updates from the office of 20th Century Fox. Today, Green Tea Movie will be reporting on the status of the sequels for 'Machete' and 'Wolverine'. Check the status right after the break.

    First, we look at Robert Rodriguez's 'Machete 2' which we reported during Comic-Con last year that he will  be producing after 'Sin City 2'. Unfortunately, it seems that Rodriguez has put 'Machete' sequel entitled 'Machete Kills' into the production wheel first. For those who don't know, 'Machete Kills' will serve as a sequel to his 2010 feature-length adaptation of the popular Grindhouse faux trailer, 'Machete'. We assume Danny Trejo will reprise his role again as the eponymous Mexican 'revolutionist' cum fighter.

    The movie is based on a story idea co-developed by R. Rodriguez and his brother/frequent producer, Marcel. The screenplay is being penned by up-and-comer Kyle Ward (in-limbo Kane & Lynch video game adaptation,  the impending Arabian Nights project).

    If you are wondering what happens to the planned 'Sin City 2' project, it looks like a delay will be expected - again.

    On another news from Fox, it seems like the studio will move on with the production of 'Wolverine 2', now entitled 'The Wolverine'. Of course, it is the sequel to the 2009's 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' which will be heading off to Japan to continue the journey. While it has been expected that 'The Wolverine' will be ready by this summer, the production has been in a rocky start that means delay is imminent. With everything seems to be in its place, 'The Wolverine' will start shooting soon with James Mangold directing and Hugh Jackman returning to his signature role.

    Fox has selected a July 26th, 2013 theatrical release date for The Wolverine, where it will face “competition” in the forms of the Phineas and Ferb movie, along with the Dirty Dancing remake. Nevertheless, that's about a month after the release of DC Comic's 'The Man of Steel'.

    In 'The Wolverine', the plot will continue Logan/Wolverine's journey to the Land of the Rising Sun following his memory-erasing finale from the predecessor, embarking  in a new adventure full of danger and romance in Japan, based partially upon Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s popular 1982 Wolverine comic book story arc.
