Weird to see this get a sequel so many years after the last one considering how fast the actors have aged. I'm going to assume we're going to see more than a few replacements in the movie.

It's only been 2 years...

That's what I thought....only 2-3 yrs.

It's been three years and they haven't started filming yet. IMHO, that's a lot of time considering the books are back to back, not with a lot of time in between.Especially if they ever have plans to do more than just two movies. It's not like Harry Potter where the story evolved over almost a decade.

Alexandra Daddario is now 26.

Logan Lerman is luckily only 20, but looked older even in the Three Musketeers movie.

Just seems weird to me that they would wait this long (still not filming) to do the movies if they had planned to do a sequel in the first place considering the desire to make sure they look the same from one film to another (again, something that wasn't a problem with Harry Potter movies because there was a sense of aging from book to book).

Can you elaborate how a movie that released in 2010 released "3 years ago", considering 2012 just started 3 months ago?

Christopher1677d ago (Edited 1677d ago )

Released in February of 2010 means filmed in 2009... and since filming hasn't begun yet in 2012... it's likely to be almost exactly 3 years from the last time they filmed.
