In Development: “Twilight,” “Battleship” and Harrison Ford in the news


Serious negotiations are under way on some major film franchises, including the fan favorite “Twilight” finale. Here’s the latest news on a few projects is tracking:

“Breaking Dawn”
Summit Entertainment has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Oscar winner Bill Condon (“Dreamgirls,” “Gods and Monsters”) is “in negotiations” to direct the studio’s two-part “Breaking Dawn,” the final adaptation in Stephenie Meyer’s popular vampire series.

EW goes on to report that, if signed, Condon would shoot the films in Vancouver over the next year.

Heat Vision reports that Taylor Kitsch, who played Gambit in 20th Century Fox’s “Wolverine” prequel, is poised to join Peter Berg’s “Battleship,” an adaptation of the Hasbro board game.

Kitsch will play a Naval commander named Alex Hopper, described in the story as “wildly spirited” and “a great seaman but a lousy politician.” The young actor is currently filming “John Carter of Mars,” director Andrew Stanton’s live-action adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic book series.

“Cowboys and Aliens”
Using Twitter to break the news, Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) announced that Indiana Jones himself, Harrison Ford, indeed will be a part of the director’s next potential blockbuster, “Cowboys & Aliens.”

“Please stop asking if Harrison Ford is in Cowboys & Aliens,” Favreau tweeted. “Okay? He is. Please don’t tell anybody.”

Considering the fact that Favreau has more than 750,000 followers, the secret didn’t last very long.

“Cowboys” will adapt an imaginative graphic novel series, created by Scott Mitchell Rosenberg, about cowboys and native Americans teaming up to combat extraterrestrials who touch down in Arizona in the mid-1800s. Favrea already has lured Daniel Craig to his project, which is scheduled to be in theaters in 2011.

“Untitled Steve Carell Comedy”
Analeigh Tipton, a contestant on “America’s Next Top Model,” is in final negotiations to star in a family comedy with Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone. Variety says Tipton will play a babysitter who has a crush on Carell’s character. John Requa and Glenn Ficarra will direct the picture, which was written by Dan Fogelman.

    You got to be kidding, right? A movie based upon a game? No wonder the film industry is dying.I guess that asking Hollywood to make an intelligent film with real characters and a real story is akin to asking a bear to -hit on a toilet.
