News and Rumours Round-Up (11/09/11)

We look at this week's biggest movie news!

This week in movieland…

  • It was confirmed that Eddie Murphy will host the 2012 Oscars. The event will take place 26th February – save the date in your diaries.
  • Proving no film is safe, it was discovered that plans are afoot to make a Beetlejuice sequel.
  • Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are to have larger roles in Expendables 2, with Willis being the film’s main bad guy.
  • It may be four years too early but Nike are releasing a limited edition pair of sneakers that look quite familiar – it’s Marty’s self-lacing Nike’s from Back to the Future II! Only 1500 will be made and proceeds go to Michael J. Fox’s charity. We’re just left wondering when hoverboards will appear…
  • The Hellfire Club (who appeared in X Men: First Class) almost had their own movie but the project didn’t take off.
