Studios ramp up pics

The major studios had been laying low for a little while in the midst of the SAG strike but now they're ramping up production for early-to-mid 2009 for some pretty big projects. Variety has a pretty decent lineup of what major projects the studios are lining up to begin filming in the next 12 months. The list includes some no-brainers - IRON MAN 2, AVATAR, ALICE IN WONDERLAND, THE GREEN HORNET and HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS - but also includes some surprises. On the list are some projects like SEX AND THE CITY 2, A-TEAM, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET (remake), GEARS OF WAR and BIOSHOCK. We also get some directing news like Robert Zemeckis officially on the mo-cap kids flick MARS NEEDS MOMS, Wesley Strick directing the ELM STREET remake and that Zack Snyder will make SUCKERPUNCH his post-WATCHMEN directing projects. Other projects of interest that are underway include THE SORCEROR'S APPRENTICE, ROBOCOP, THOR, BEVERLY HILLS COP, SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and CLASH OF THE TITANS. Sounds like a lot of fancy pants projects on the way which could give us a 2010 chock full of awesome shit. Or total crap...(I'm talking to you BEVERLY HILLS COP 4).

Extra Tidbit: There was no LETHAL WEAPON 5 on this list.
