Movie Minesweeper - The I've Missed You Too Edition

Not much activity on film ick over the last 24 hours or so, but I want to put that straight... over the next 24 minutes or so. Martin's currently prepping his review of the Burn After Reading script, by Ethan and Joel Coen. To keep you going until then, here's a heap of links you might want to bother with.

- Lindsay Lohan will apparently play a stripper in I Know Who Killed Me. I suppose this news has set the web alight as people are assuming she'll go naked on screen. I don't assume this, personally - for one thing, I saw Closer. Besides, there's not much of Lohan left to see, there's not really any air of mystery.

- There are to be up to three more Terminator films, apparently built out of seemingly incidental details hidden in Terminator 3. We'll see.

- Eli Roth is planning an entire film of fake trailers, to be called Trailer Trash - to be shot before and after Cell. Not all of them will be directed by Roth. He discusses this in a video interview with Collider.

- Orlando Bloom and Scarlett Johansson are rumoured to be in talks for Roman Polanski's Pompeii.

- Michael Bay has responded to Bruce Willis' disses - and either Bay is lying again, as per the Transformers lips, or he's just rumbled Bruno something rotten. According to Bay he was originally approached to direct Die Hard 4.0.

- Michel Gondry is directing Bjork's Declare Independence video, due for a July release.

- John De Mol is to revive the Hammer brand name.

- Peter Cattaneo is to direct The Rocker, with Rainn Wilson lined up to star as "a failed drummer given a second shot at fame".

- Gena Holden is the new Dale Arden.
