The Boys Are Back! High School Musical 4 has been announced, likely to air on the Disney Channel in 2010. There will be a cross-town rivalry between the East High Wildcats (whoo! yay!) and the West High Knights (boo! hiss!). Perhaps we'll see a Romeo and Juliet star-crossed-lovers storyline? Goofy Jimmie "Rocketman" Zara (Matt Prokop) and devious Tiara
Gold (Jemma McKenzie-Brown) will be back, but no sign (yet) of Vanessa or Zac . . . boo
Dakota Fanning will be playing Jane in Twilight sequel, New Moon, which is scheduled to be in theaters November 30, 2009.
Marmaduke, Brad Anderson's long running comic strip (since 1954!) will be made into a movie. We don't know yet if the movie will be live-action (real slobber), animated (computer-generated slobber), or a mix of the two (computer generated slobber on real people?).
Can't get enough of the movies? Don't forget to join our LIVE online chat this Saturday, March 14, 4-5 p.m. ET! We'll be chatting about all things related to book-to-film adaptations, including the ones just announced above!
