by | July 20, 2007 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, Donnie Wahlberg is none too pleased at how the Saw franchise has kept him involved, the producers of the next James Bond film may lighten the mood, and director David Yates is already looking ahead to the Half Blood Prince. Also, two film making titans squared off over a release date, and Stan Lee gives his thoughts about the recent spate of comic book movies. Read on.

This Week’s Most Popular News:

Wahlberg Upset Over Saw IV Cameo
Most actors are happy when they get asked back to a role. Not Donnie Wahlberg. Though left for dead at the end of Saw II, he was granted more screen time in Saw III. That seemed to be the end, but it looks like there’s more Wahlberg in Saw IV.

Bond 22 Less Serious, More Comedic; Bond 23 Set for 2010
After the overtly gritty and serious Casino Royale, I personally predicted that after a few dark Bond movies they’d try to pump in goofy humor again. Turns out they are, and could actually start as early as the next Bond.

Yates Plans Harry Potter VI: Half Blood Prince
David Yates has just finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix but he’s already planning the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Where Order is an intense film about teenage feelings of isolation, Prince will go to the next level of teenage years.

James Cameron’s Avatar Stares Down Monsters vs. Aliens For Summer Date
Not too long ago we heard there was a big shoving match going on for the release date of May 22nd, 2009. The combatants were DreamWorks’ Monsters vs. Aliens and James Cameron’s Avatar. And one of ’em blinked.

Stan Lee Chats About Iron Man, The Hulk, and The Fantastic Four
When Marvel man Stan Lee isn’t doing goofy little cameos in superhero movies, he’s hosting a TV series called “Who Wants to Be a Superhero?” — but let’s just focus on the movies for now.

Could this be funny?
