Dan Aykroyd may not be having a particularly easy time getting Ghostbusters 3 off the ground, but that doesn’t mean he’s giving up on something made. In fact, Aykroyd recently announced on his Facebook page that he’ll be teaming up with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Chevy Chase to pen a new comedy film.
Details on what the film will be are extremely light at the moment, but Aykroyd did at least say that he’s excited to work with Chase again.
“Cannot say too much about the concept, but the joy of working with him again is one that I am extremely excited about,” Aykroyd said. “Chevy is one of my favorite people, and one of the great anarchistic and physically committed comedians in the business.”
The last time Chase and Aykroyd teamed up for a movie was 1991′s Nothing But Trouble, which just so happened to be Aykroyd’s directorial debut. If you’ve never heard of the film before, that’s likely because Nothing But Trouble was a flop in just about every sense of the word. Hopefully their last movie project isn’t an indication of what we can expect with their new comedy film project.
Since then, the two actors have gone their separate ways, with Chase recently landing a gig in NBC’s comedy Community, while Aykroyd has been keeping a relatively lower profile, starring in 2010′s Yogi Bear. Aykroyd is also said to be starring in The Campaign, an upcoming political comedy from Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis.
I am extremely disappointed that Netflix has decided to pass on Terra Nova after FOX cancelled the series. I would have possibly put some good faith back into Netflix again and resubscribed if they would have saved the show. At least I just cancelled my membership with them this week and this is one of the main reasons why I did so. Which has been happening a lot to Netflix lately because of the how fiasco with them not too long ago, them splitting their service and networks not renewing with them.
It is not all Netflix’s fault though, you also have to blame FOX for actually deciding to cancel it after taking a few months to decide what they were going to do with it. It is really upsetting seeing how it is a great show and people that love the show would love to know what happens next season and so forth till it has ended. Not only that but we all really want to know what the Badlands are, what is there, and how it all came to be.
There is a lot that Fox could have done to cut costs, other shows have either done it or have survived with such ratings. Then there is advertising, for a show to survive you kind of have to advertise the show exists. I only saw a limited amount of advertising of it but at least more than other shows. They could have even gone as far as putting up Terra Nova posters in Museum; unless they did that. I hope some network decides to pick up Terra Nova, it would be nice.
So I read a rumor that Bethesda and ZeniMax Media are getting ready to reveal on a long-rumored Elder Scrolls MMO, possibly as soon as May.
According to a report from Tom’s Guide, “inside sources” claim that the Elder Scrolls MMO, apparently titled Elder Scrolls Online, will take place “a full millennium” before the events of Skyrim, putting it in or around the “Second Era” in Elder Scrolls lore.
The report goes on to say that Elder Scrolls Online will have three playable factions, each represented by the insignia of a lion, a dragon, and some sort of a bird of prey. Specifics on possibly races involved with the three factions weren’t shared.
The site adds that Elder Scrolls Online will likely be shown alongside Doom 4, and the two games will likely be on the show floor at this year’s E3. Subsequent showings are said to take place around this year’s QuakeCon, which takes place after E3 in August.
Tom’s Guide points out:
The fact that ZeniMax and Bethesda are working on an MMO is hardly a secret, as related job postings have been on ZeniMax’s website for quite some time now. What remained unknown until now was the universe in which this MMO would take place. While some were certainly hoping for a Fallout MMO of some sort – a game that ZeniMax and Bethesda control the publishing rights for – that is not to be the case.
I think this game would be really cool, I am still playing my first MMO called Rift and would love for an MMO like Skyrim to be released. It would be really cool if it were like Fallout but that will not happen due to licensing issues that will probably never get sorted out. I would also love if there were to ever be a Call of Duty MMO, that would be badass.
Around a week ago Google decide to rename Google Market to Google Play as well as other services such as Google Music to Google Play Music. I think it is one of the most ridiculous name changes I have seen especially in the longest time. It does not make much sense to me, other than the complete obvious.
What was wrong with “Market”? It is the most simplest name for anyone non-tech-savvy to completely understand where to get applications, games, music and much more from.
Then you also have the new icon for it; shown above, which I think is one of the most ugliest and hideous icons Google has ever given us too. I know this is my own opinion but I am sure there is at least a large group of other people out there that will agree with me on that too.
