Movie News: Mystery 'Ant-Man' Pic; 'Jack Ryan' Creator Tom Clancy Dies; 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' Writers Start on 'ASM 3'

Oct 03, 2013


Ant-Man: Is this Ant-Man? Eh, could be. Director Edgar Wright shared the photo via social media, with the caption: "Now I'm back in LA, it's high time to finish a little something I've been working on…" But it's not clear if this is a new image or an old one from test footage that was evidently shot in the past. In any case, the role has not yet been cast -- as far as we know. The movie is scheduled for release on November 6, 2015. [Edgar Wright via Film School Rejects]


Tom Clancy: Best-selling novelist Tom Clancy has died at the age of 66. Clancy's first book, The Hunt for Red October, featured CIA analyst Jack Ryan, who became an iconic action hero in the big-screen version (as played by Alec Baldwin), and, subsequently, in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger (with Harrison Ford in the role), and The Sum of All Fears (starring Ben Affleck), as well as the newly retitled Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, with Chris Pine, due in theaters on December 25.

The Amazing Spider-Man 3: Superheroes never rest, and neither do the makers of superhero movies. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is currently in postproduction, prepping for a May 2, 2014, release, and so writers Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jeff Pinkner, who worked together on the screenplay for ASM 2, have been hired to do it again for ASM 3. Andrew Garfield is expected to return as well, though it's not certain if director Marc Webb will be back for the third installment, which is aiming for release on June 10, 2016. [Heat Vision]

Rio 2 Trailer: The delightful animated movie Rio has inspired a sequel that will be landing in theaters on April 11, 2014. Led by Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg, the entire voice cast returns in Rio 2, joined by a flock of new creatures, including ones voiced by Andy Garcia and Rita Moreno, as the gang travels to the Amazon. The first trailer promises many colorful treats. [Movie Clips]
