Asked how Sigourney Weaver might come back in the sequel despite her mind becoming one with a tree in the first film, James Cameron wouldn't confirm but hinted at how that will be accomplished.

"Have you ever heard of nonlinear storytelling? A lot happens on that planet before she shows up, and before Jake shows up to join her. She’s there for fifteen years ahead of time." [Source: Vulture]

The Forging of Zorro
Sony Pictures is up to its old domain name registering tricks. Last week came word they bought variations of "Skyfall" and 007 which had lead to hints that might be the title of the next James Bond picture.

Today comes word they've registered 21 domain names with variations of "The Forging of Zorro” or “Zorro: The Legend Begins" for their upcoming reboot based on the 2005 Isabel Allende novel. [Source: Fusible]

Robocop
Director José Padilha ("Elite Squad") says that the "RoboCop" reboot that he's set to direct will NOT be using Darren Aronofsky's earlier script.

Padilha says “I haven’t read Aronofsky’s script… I have my own take on RoboCop. I know what his take was and it’s totally different. It’s a different thing, different kind of film, even different period in time so I haven’t read his previous work.” [Source: Crave Online]
