WANTED 2

According to Russia-IC, Timur Bekmambetov is ready to get back behind the camera ... and he's bringing back a certain adoption-happy star with him. "In July we will start preparation for the film," Bekmambetov said. "I think in the late autumn or winter shooting will be performed. The shooting will take place in America, India and Russia. As for the character played by Kostya Khabenskiy, we'll think about it. We might possibly resurrect him as well."

Starring James McAvoy, no release date announced.

PRIEST

Actor Cam Gigandet talked to Shock Till You Drop about the Korean comic adaptation. "[Shooting is] coming up in August," said Gigandet, "It's a big movie. Paul Bettany and I are fighting vampires. Or creatures. vampire-creatures to be exact ... If you wanted to call them something, they'd be vampires. But not in the terms that we think of vampires. They don't like sun and that's kind of the main similarity. Other than that, they don't look like humans. They move differently. When you think of vampires, now people probably think of Twilight. But these aren't like that."

No release date announced.

No release date announced.

JOHN CARTER FROM MARS

According to Variety, "Wolverine" stars Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins to star in the fantasy epic.

Directed by Andrew Stanton, written by Mark Andrews.
