The sequel to Harold and Kumar go to White Castle is set for a January shooting date in Shreveport, Louisana. Originally it was to be about a trip to Amsterdam, so that Harold could chase his dream girl. Apparently it will now be a "Cross-country adventure in which the pot-smoking duo try to outrun authorities after being suspected of being terrorists for trying to smuggle a bong on board a flight to Amsterdam". The same writer's of the first movie (Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg) have also written the sequel.

The crew of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" was shooting scenes at Niagara Falls a few weeks ago. None of the big stars made the trip for the shoot, and it appears the Falls themselves was the 'star'.

The studio is keeping mum on exactly how the footage of the world-famous waterfall will be used, but there is speculation that moviegoers will see Captain Jack Sparrow and his shipmates facing oblivion courtesy of the giant cataract. As was the case with "Bruce Almighty," where studio-shot Jim Carrey scenes were superimposed on actual Horseshoe Falls footage, Disney will use shots of the treacherous waters as background for scenes filmed in Hollywood.

Variety reports that Bryan Singer has signed a deal with Warner Bros. to direct and produce a sequel to this summer's "Superman Returns".

The film is tentatively intended for release in summer 2009, although the studio stressed that there's not even a script or budget yet. The sequel is apparently at the very beginning of the development process and, as with any other project, there are any number of factors that must be addressed before it is greenlit.

While Superman Returns wasn't the performer the studio had hoped for, it has earned more than $390 million worldwide and WB and Legendary say they will still turn a profit from the film.

The two companies are sure to insist that the sequel's production budget comes in under $200 million, adds the trade. In terms of casting, Warner Bros. has an option on Superman Returns star Brandon Routh.
