Fourth Librarian Movie
I had to post this…
The Librarian series, which stars Noah Wyle as Flynn Carsen in an Indiana Jones knockoff, will produce a fourth movie that will likely be released in 2010. The previous movies include “Quest for the Spear” (2004), “Return to King Solomon’s Mine“ (2006), and “Curse of the Judas Chalice“ (2008).
Librarians, archivist, library staffers… Lets just say anyone who enjoyed the first three movies will look forward to the next release. I will!
Post Update 3-8-10
Apparently, a lot of people are interested in when the fourth movie will be released. No news yet as to when the fourth movie will appear. Right now the producers are writing the script, then they will need to cast and do pre-production stuff before the actually filming takes place (see below for details). I’m guessing that it will take at least one year, so we might see it come to theaters (yes, I said theaters!) in 2011.
I also realized that I didn’t include my original source of info above–my most sincere apologies! My original source came from the official ALA email list in which the following was posted, if you want to read more:
A new Librarian movie in 2010, @ your theater
Clarissa writes: “The first Librarian TV movie with Noah Wyle appeared in 2004 and was called Quest for the Spear. The second was in 2006 and was called Return to King Solomon’s Mines, and the final one (or so we thought) aired in 2008 and was called The Curse of the Judas Chalice. Producer Dean Devlin recently announced that a fourth Librarian movie will be released in theaters. No word yet on the date, but since shooting will occur this year, chances are it will be released sometime in 2010.”…
TV Overmind, Nov. 8
TVovermind mentions an announcement by the director Dean Delvin for a fourth movie. It basically says that there will be a fourth movie, and it will be released as a movie in theaters opposed to how the first three movies appeared on cable television’s TNT channel (http://www.tvovermind.com/tv-news/the-librarian-tv-series-to-become-a-movie/13022).
I turned up two references to an interview with the producer which was posted January 8th & 9th of 2009 (http://www.cliqueclack.com/tv/2009/01/08/the-librarians-next-adventure-your-movie-theater/ http://community.livejournal.com/librarian_films). The producer was asked where the series was headed, given its success and whether it will ever go to the big screen, and the producer Dean Delvin replied:
“We’re in the process right now of writing the script,” Devlin told Deb in the interview. “Were hoping some time later this year to start shooting the first Librarian feature movie.” Maybe Noah Wyle didn’t make such a bad move after all.
With the so-so reception the last Indiana Jones movie got (aliens and swinging through trees with monkeys — I mean, come on!), it’s possible that something like this might be a welcome “replacement” for it. Then again, have you seen the National Treasure series? Yikes.
“We’re a little more family friendly than the Indiana Jones franchise,” Devlin continued, “but it’s a good time to let this character flourish.”
Resident CliqueClack Librarian expert, Rich Keller, had this to say about the series: “For an action-adventure television series it was good. Cheesy but good. Everyone involved looked to be having a good time filming the series. The third installment was probably the best of them all.”
I searched the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) among other places and didn’t find any scoops on Noah Wyle, Dean Delvin, Noah’s character Flynn Carsen, or the new Librarian movie–only previous Librarian movies. The TNT Librarian web sites (Quest for the Spear, Return to King Solomon’s Mines, and Curse of the Judas Chalice) also didn’t have any info, but it does have a link to a graphic novel of which you can preview 8 pages.
I’ll post any more current info on this page…
