I just heard about it yesterday, so I don't know much about it yet. The biggest point of interest thus far is the complete re-cast of the principal players. Apparently, the producers were either too cheap or too stupid to retain the original cast for the sequels THEY HAD PLANNED FROM THE BEGINNING, and for whatever reasons (the pitiful box office return and the critical savaging AS1 took, probably chief among them) those folks chose not to return. This new cast is noticeably older, with even less impressive filmographies. The joke is that part 3 will get re-cast again.

Interesting that they're shooting for a pre-election release. If it plays near me, I'll go see it.
