Michael Caine receives Knighthood

The 67-year-old actor, whose dead-pan Cockney pronunciation is regurgitated by impersonators at will, chose to collect his knighthood under the name of his fish porter father, Maurice.

Michael Caine, a south London boy of low beginnings turned Hollywood superstar and restaurateur, therefore became Sir Maurice Micklewhite - the name he was given at birth.

In/Pre Production

Terminator 3

Arnold has revealed a big twist in Terminator 3, This time around, the assassination machine from the future will be a female.

While chatting with the New York Post about his new sci-fi drama, The 6th Day, which opens Friday, Arnold said that the wily new terminator will be very elusive, "She can disappear, she can mold into someone else, and she is sometimes just an energy," says the action hero.

So far, only Schwarzenegger and T2's Edward Furlong have committed to the third Terminator outing. Director James Cameron declined to direct a third installment and a new director has yet to be found. Those mentioned to take over the director's chair include John McTiernan (Die Hard), Ridley Scott (Gladiator), David Fincher (Fight Club), Roland Emmerich (The Patriot), and Christian Duguay (The Art of War). With Cameron out of the way, it's Schwarzenegger's puppy now, and he recently ordered the script rewritten for, appropriately enough, the third time.
Also Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) is Definitely Not Returning:

X - Men 2, 3, 4 ???

Suprisingly enough, the sequal to the Marvel classic X-Men may be in the pipeline.

Director Bryan Singer has expressed interest (see below) in doing this film for 2002, and a third for 2004, but officially, Fox has not announced a date yet.

Matrix 2

Keanu Reeves is to play Neo once again in this so called trilogy.
Production will be done on The Matrix 2 and The Matrix 3 back-to-back to implement a cliffhanger, serialized story, and to keep the combined budgets to a minimum.
