I wish they just didn't make these announcements before there's actually more certainty. Because you get your hopes up and are looking forward to it, and then it doesn't happen.

Is it the studios themselves that get this information out that they're planning to make something? Or does the information get out somehow in another way?

For example, for the James Bond films they always do an official announcement, but they do it when they're sure the film is actually getting made.

I think its very rare for studios to put out information about in development productions for that very reason, because it might not get made, its mainly news outlets that report developments, generating buzz, which is wasted when the project doesnt come to fruition.

But usually it's at a really early point that it gets announced. I don't get how these news outlets can know it - at that point it's only known to some heads of a studio and the people who sold the property. Not a lot of people know it at that point, and it's still news already. How can the outlets know about it?

Outlets have sources within all the big movie studios, plus if an actor gets sent a story treatment, then that usually means he tells someone about it then so on and so forth.

But it means that a studio in an unofficial way agrees with that the news come out - or they would forbid these sources inside their studio, or have a clause that no employee is allowed to talk about in development projects.

on the one hand, hollywood made a what, 6 film franchise based off of a theme park ride, and another off some toys and a cartoon. on the other hand, hollywood is full of stupid people, who like to rehash old stories because they're "safe". it'd be nice to see everything get adapted in time, but some stuff is weird enough that i doubt we'll see it. or short enough.
