This movie is officially in DEVELOPMENT HELL!
We havent heard anything for weeks!!
You kidding? If nothing comes out of a production for about 7 to 8 months, then you can assume its in development hell. At this point, we'll be lucky this thing even gets made.
The only thing I don't get is why Legendary doesn't seem to be giving this much attention. I mean, it's obviously a huge project for them considering the franchise and all -- but considering how many of their other films are already filming and have been casted and have release dates set, it just baffles me that they would take a certainly profitable license and then just sort of put it on the back-burner for projects which really don't have much leeway in the sense of brand identity or a long-standing film career.
I mean, I can understand the whole "testing the waters" thing with Pacific Rim... but that's not going to be released until Summer 2013. It just seems like a huge risk to take a massively profitable franchise and then sit around with it waiting to see if it's even worth taking a shot at.
