So it seems all this blog writing is going to pay off. The (American Sci-Fi media track ) at this years Dragon Con would like me to sit on a few panels during the 2009 Dragon Con which I must say I am very happy to do. Two of them are on Friday night with the first being “At the Movies with.... (summer movies)” which begins at 7:00 pm I believe and the second one is called Southern Discomfort - True Blood discussion starting on Friday at 10:00 pm. based on a series of books called The Southern Vampire Series by Author Charlaine Harris And followed by another panel titled “Comedy and Humor in genre shows” Saturday at 10 am. Which unfortunately runs at the same time as the Dragon Con parade, but I am honored to be asked to sit in on these panels and discuss what is going on in TV and movies this year. I am very happy that two of my best friends Kat and Jason are attending the con for the first and most likely not their last. I look forward to them possibly being able sit in on one or two of the panels and hear what I think on these topics, but I have a funny feeling they will be way too busy taking in all the sights and sounds of this convention. So I will keep you all up to date on what happens. Please write us here at SciFiPundit with any questions or comments you might have. We love to hear from our readers.
The Black Pearl Preparing Set Sail Again In 2012
Disney studios is moving forward with their as always big plans for the Lone Ranger film with Johnnie Depp as the side kick Tonto with their wish of releasing the film in the summer of 2011. And as we all know Disney tends to make wishes come true, even their own. This latest development is putting a slight hold on the release of Pirates of the Caribbean 4 with director Rob Marshall, who directed the 2002 Academy Award winning film Chicago possibly at the (pardon the pun) Black Pearl helm sometime in 2012 and with the hope of Mr. Depp returning to his most famous or infamous role as Capt. Jack Sparrow. I personally see nothing wrong with new blood coming to the $2 billion Disney franchise, as long as the singing is kept to a minimum and the dancing is no more than a little pirate jig. Let’s hope anyways. “I do believe in pirates… I do… I do believe in pirates…” (Damn, I’ve been working the Renaissance Faire way too long this summer.)
