IRON MAN 2 to Begin Production Quickly!

IESB's Robert Sanchez attended the red carpet premiere of IRON MAN in Los Angeles yesterday and spoke to several filmmakers and cast. What's the word on the street? IRON MAN 2 is coming…quickly!
Although filmmakers and cast tend to be closed-lipped about sequels, most likely due to not wanting to sound pompous or too sure of themselves or maybe they're just afraid of the dreadful JINX! In any case, the best people to get info from on a film is from the behind the scenes crew.
Last night, we did just that. Downey's trainer, Brad Bose, told the IESB that he starts training with Downey just after this final premiere in LA (Downey has had a few months off in between going to work on Ben Stiller's TROPIC THUNDER). Then, he will have him ready to wear the suit again in just 5 months. This time around he wants to put an extra 10 pounds on the actor, for a little more bulk.
So most likely, fan can look for a production start in early 2009 for IRON MAN 2. The first film is tracking highly and can expect a BIG box-office opening weekend.

Entertainment Tonight attended the Iron Man premiere and got a chance to speak to Viacom and CBS Executive Chairman Sumner Redstone and Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey who said that if the movie does as well as expected, the studio will be looking to release the sequel in 2010.
What's interesting is that The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has already "claimed" the first weekend of the summer that year (May 7, 2010), but if you look at the calendar, Iron Man 2 could easily open on April 30, which is a Friday, essentially giving it almost a similar release date as the first film.
Oh! And while press screenings did not have a certain scene after the credits, when Iron Man is released in theaters tonight, it IS expected to have it... so, be sure to stay after the credits!
