The Mummy/Glory Screenwriter Kevin Jarre Passes Away

Filed under: Film FlickersR.I.P.Sad Sad

screenwriter kevin jarre passes away

Hollywood has lost a very talented screenwriter WAY before his time.

Screenwriter Kevin Jarre has passed away at 56-years-old from unexpected heart failure.

Jarre's screenwriting credits include Tombstone and Glory. He was also a co-writer/executive producer on Stephen Sommers' The Mummy.

Kevin Jarre's adoptive father was legendary Lawrence of Arabia/Ghost composer Maurice Jarre, who passed away two years ago.

Our thoughts go out to Jarre's family, friends, and peers during this very difficult time.

To this day, Glory is still shown in history classrooms. Kevin's work will be remembered.

Why G.I. Joe 2 MIGHT Not Be Horrible

Filed under: Film FlickersChanning Tatum

Yes, G.I. Joe 2 is on its way, and yes, we said it might not be horrible (key word, of course, being MIGHT).

Here are some reasons why G.I. Joe 2 might not be unwatchable…

-Channing Tatum will be returning. That news is bound to bring at least a glimmer of hope.

-Sources say that Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing the script….and Zombieland was pretty damn awesome.

-Director Stephen Sommers is returning. He’s got to be aware of how people felt about the first film, so maybe he’ll keep the plentiful criticisms in mind whilst directing this one.

-For G.I. Joe fans, you’ll get another opportunity to be re-introduced to characters that you loved from the series.

-It can’t possibly get any worse than the first film.

Will you be able to muster any level of enthusiasm for this sequel?
