Disney Is In Early Talks To Buyout Fox

Published

on

Walt Disney Company is trying to continue their dominance in film and television with their latest power move. CNBC is reporting that Disney is early talks to buy a portion of Fox. The two companies have been in talks for several weeks.

Fox would change its growth strategy and focus on news and sports, according to people familiar with the situation. The talks have taken place over the last few weeks and there is no certainty they will lead to a deal. The two sides are not currently talking at this very moment, but given the on again, off again nature of the talks, they could be revisited.

Disney already owns a large portion of the biggest media companies, Lucasfilm, Marvel Studios, ABC, ESPN, and they even own 47% of Amazon. Disney is interested in 21st Century Fox, which includes FX, Nat Geo, and the 20th Century Fox movie studio. The company has also announced plans to launch their own digital service to compete with Netflix and Hulu.

The potential deal would not include the Fox broadcast network.“Fox’s sports programming assets in the belief that combining them with ESPN could be seen as anti-competitive from an antitrust standpoint,” and the sale would not include Fox News or Fox’s business channel.

For comic book fans, this can be the beginning of a new era with Disney taking back the rights to many of Marvel’s characters. The Avengers movies could refer to mutants, Wolverine could become an Avenger, and Deadpool could team up with Spider Man. Ok. Maybe not the last one, but you get the point.

I want to get Ryan in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative. There are some great scenes in there that have been just lifted and it would be fun to be back in.”

Zombieland 2 Plot Details Leaked Online

Published

on

Zombieland 2 will finally start filming in October. Details of the sequel have already been leaked online.

According to sources, Sony’s follow up to the 2009 film will focus on the aftermath of the first zombie outbreak.

Zombieland Too opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. The way the film approaches answering the question is both hilarious and depressing. The change from ‘zombies’ to ‘no zombies’ can be considered as big as the change from ‘no zombies’ to ‘zombies.’ It’s such a dramatic transformation to one’s routine, what they consider normal, that it fundamentally alters their mentality. Boredom and apathy seep into each person’s psyche, slowly growing discontent with one another until they reach an inevitable boiling point.”

Splash Report also posted news on the potential plot for the sequel.

“The main plot of Zombieland Too follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. You know how earlier I mentioned zombies were now extinct in Zombieland? I lied. You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by Super Zombies, giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.”
