On this fast, but full, episode of the GeekScholars Movie News podcast, the crew begins by discussing the news that Beverly Hills Cop, and a spin off from The Avengers, focusing on S.H.I.E.L.D., are making their way to the small screen. The GeekScholars then muse over the possibility that the Wachowskis might end up directing Justice League, Michael Douglas’ ability to play Ronald Reagan in Reykjavik, and whether or not casting Michael Keaton as the villain can save the Robocop reboot from all the negative attention it’s been receiving.
GeekScholars Movie News headlines conclude this week with the rumors that Sony may be planning a movie based upon the video game console wars (but which ones?), and Jon Turteltaub’s possible feature film, Beached, about a boy raised by whales who becomes an Olympic swimmer. You read that right.
From there, the GeekScholars get into their Preview Reviews for the week, taking a look at the trailers for two documentaries, Head Games, which deals with the latest information regarding sports concussions, and How to Make Money Selling Drugs, which deals with…well, exactly what the title says.
GeekScholar Chris wraps up the show with a mini-review of the independent comedy, Sleepwalk with Me, which he had a chance to check out last week.
