Disney has announced that Prometheus co-writer Jon Spaihts will be writing the script for the recently green-lighted remake of the 1979 sci-fi film The Black Hole.
Joe Kosinski is the anticipated director and Justin Springer the expected producer.
The original film, which was the most expensive Disney had ever made at the time of its release, follows a group of space explorers onboard the USS Palomino who discover a lost ship (USS Cygnus) outside of a black hole. For a full synopsis of the plot, please visit the following link.
It is not know how much, if any, the remake will follow the original story line.

Do you know anything about this 20,000 Leagues deal?
Hello anon! I unfortunately only know a bit about the potential remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, however I will do some research and digging around to see if I can uncover any additional or more substantial information.
But, what I do know, is that Disney has not actually green lighted the project yet, so there’s no official word as to when production would start or any anticipated release date. It has been mentioned as of late (which is, I suspect, why you’re asking) that the Australian government has offered a pretty hefty incentive of over $20 million to encourage Disney to film in the country. But again, Disney hasn’t actually announced that they will be doing a remake, so that might just be wishful thinking on Australia’s part.
Like I said, I’ll do some digging and hopefully I’ll be able to do an update with a bit more info later down the line!

Guillermo del Toro offers a few statements regarding his involvement and the status/direction of the Haunted Mansion film he is set to direct.
I have a meeting with them in three weeks. I know they like the screenplay. I need to meet with them in three weeks. That’s what I know. I know their reaction to the draft was good. We have a bunch of conceptualist art, but you never know, to predict anything else is hard for me to know.
On his anticipated role as director:
I came on board originally as a writer and producer, the decision I think they may be waiting, is for me to say I’m directing the movie. Or am I directing it next, which is too early for me to know what I’m doing next in live-action. I’m in the middle of Pacific Rim and I don’t know what I’m going to do next.
Regarding the direction and style of the movie:
The storyline for ‘The Haunted Mansion’ and the ride is quite open,” he explained in an earlier interview. “We are taking sort of the core mythology that you can tap into and saying that there are many mansions around the world and they’re all part of a sort of web. The spider sitting at the center of the web is what the fans of ‘The Haunted Mansion’ would know by the nickname the Hatbox Ghost, which is a beautiful creature that was created, but there’s a legend that it was discarded on the first day of the ride’s operation because it was too scary. I like that legend, but the reality is that the imagineers could not make the illusion work so they took it out. It’s more or less where the bride is in the attic on the way out of the mansion, but it’s such a great character that there is literally a cult for the Hatbox Ghost amongst hardcore ‘Haunted Mansion’ fanatics, and I’m one of them.
The movie I see in my head of ‘Haunted Mansion’ is not what I believe anyone is imagining it would be. It’s not just a regular world with a haunted mansion plopped in the middle. I’m really thinking of a movie with a heightened reality, which is super designed, incredibly innovative, narratively and visually. When people think of ‘The Haunted Mansion,’ they think they know [what it’s about]. But I really want to push a lot of stuff that they have not seen ever.

Marvel has hired a new writer, Chris McCoy, for the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. McCoy has been asked to rewrite the originally proposed script written by Nicole Perlman.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be the first non-sequel movie released by Marvel since The Avengers earlier this year, and is expected to feature Groot, Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, and Rocket Raccoon.
It is also worth noting that the Guardians do come into quite a bit of contact with Thanos in the comics, which has resulted in some speculation that the clip of Thanos at the end of The Avengers movie may not have been intended for the sequel to said film, but may in fact be intended to hint at the primary villain in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The anticipated release date for the film is August 1, 2014.

Disney has announced a change in its official description for the film Frozen. The film is being directed by Chris Buck and will feature the voice talents of both Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel. Release of the film is projected to occur in November of 2013.
Original description of the film:
In Frozen, a prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen (voice of Idina Menzel) and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
New description of the film:
When Anna is cursed by her estranged sister, the cold-hearted Snow Queen, Anna’s only hope of reversing the curse is to survive a perilous but thrilling journey across an icy and unforgiving landscape. Joined by a rugged, thrill-seeking outdoorsman, his one-antlered reindeer and a hapless snowman, Anna must race against time, conquer the elements and battle an army of menacing snowmen if she ever hopes to melt her frozen heart.

Pixar has confirmed that they are in fact planning on producing a sequel to the 2003 film Finding Nemo, which would have a projected release date of 2016.
Andrew Stanton will be returning to the helm as director with Victoria Strouse serving as the anticipated writer for the film.
The decision to create a sequel to Finding Nemo works to confirm Pixar’s slow move away from the original film powerhouse they have been known as, to more of a franchise based studio, considering that a large majority of their current and announced projects are sequels.
