SAM TALKS SHYAMALAN! Splash Page has Sam Jackson’s thoughts on “Unbreakable” and Mr. Night.
“I mean, he hasn’t made a really good movie since [’Unbreakable’],” Jackson said. “Well, he suffered from what happened to Quentin when he made ’Jackie Brown.’ He didn’t make ’Pulp Fiction 2,’ he made ’Jackie Brown’ — which is a wonderful f—ing movie. … ’Unbreakable’ also didn’t have the numbers of ’I see dead people.’ That was a problem for him … for his ego and the studio, also.”
DAMON’S OFF ’PROMETHEUS’ MTV Movies reports that Damon Lindelof will not write a “Prometheus” sequel…if there is one.
“The thing about ’Prometheus’ was it was a rewrite. Jon Spaihts wrote a script and I rewrote it. And still it was a year of my life that I spent on ’Prometheus,’ kind of all in. The idea of building a sequel to it—from the ground up this time—with Ridley is tremendously exciting,” Lindelof said. “But at the same time, I was like, ’Well that’s probably going to be two years of my life.’ I can’t do what J.J. [Abrams] does. I don’t have the capability. I’m usually very single-minded creatively. I can only be working on one thing at a time.”
ROBIN HOOD VS. ARROW? CW is developing a drama about Robin Hood called “Sherwood.

Seeing help from the vanished Robin of Locksley, she inadvertently reunites — and joins — the fabled Robin Hood and his Merry Men, inspiring new hope for the oppressed people of Nottingham.
