Movie Updates: ‘Tron 3,’ Vanilla Ice up for ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle’ reboot and ‘Transformers’ go to Hong Kong

While promoting Once Upon a Time in Wonderland with Forbes, producer Adam Horowitz gave fans a “no news” update on a third Tron film.

“Hopefully we’ll have some news about what’s going on forward with the next one soon. There’s nothing official to announce now but hopefully soon, but it’s chugging along. It is. Eddie [Kitsis] and I are co-producers on the film. And we have a script that’s being written by a great writer named Jesse Wigutow. And we’re really, really excited. I mean the studio is hopefully excited, but Joe is involved and everybody’s involved and everybody is waiting to get the go-ahead and we’re hopeful.”

While chatting with Moviefone, Vanilla Ice, aka Rob Van Winkle, says he’s excited about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle film and wishes he could
“Hell yes! ‘Secret of the Ooze’ is the highlight of my life and I’ll never top it!”

He doesn’t even necessarily need to rap or perform in the movie, either. He’s totally willing to play whatever role he’s offered, even if it’s a simple walk-on.

“We could do a remake of the Ninja Rap, this time with dub-step! [Laughs] Or even [a role without rapping]. Anything, somewhere in there. Michael Bay’s doing this one, it’s huge!”

Just a note to fans: Michael Bay is ONLY the producer, the film will be directed by Jonathan Liebesman

 Transformers: Age of Extinction

Hong Kong may be pleased to welcome the Transformers: Age of Extinction production in real life, but in the movies the arrival of the alien robots will probably spell disaster.

Yahoo Hong Kong reports that a big battle will take place in the city.

Shooting is expected to take place in Victoria Harbor, Central Bank of China Tower, Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Center, Wan Chai District, Sham Shui Po District, and the Kowloon Peninsula among other locations, though the crew is still obtaining permission for some locations.

Xinhuanet adds that the shoot will take 10-14 days, and offers some (kinda spoilery) details about the exact scenes being filmed. Head to their site for the description, but be warned that you’ll need to be able to understand either Chinese or Google Translate.

Transformers: Age of Extinction opens June 27, 2014.
