    Sequel To "Salt" Is Underway; Angelina Jolie Returning. Chiwetel Ejiofor?

    Well... at least it could mean more work, and thus a paycheck for Mr Chiwetel Ejiofor, and given the way the first one ended, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel.

The Angelina Jolie spy film seems impressive when you look at the numbers -- just under $300 million worldwide -- but when you break it down, it looks less enticing.

    Financing In Place, As Film Gets Fast-Tracked At DreamWorksThe summer movie season is upon us and it's easy to forget that there are movies being developed at the major studios are aren't sequels, based on a comic or toy or spun-off a previous film or television show. In the works for years, the long-gestating space film by Doug Liman -- now titled "Luna" -- has been inching forward in fits and starts for the past while. Originally with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead, who later left the project, it sputtered back to life this past spring when a wealth of names were said to be contending for the open role including Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch a...
