Movie Minesweeper - The Classic Bangladeshi Edition

- Robert Zemeckis' Beowulf will screen in 3D at IMAX venues as well as over 1000 digital screens across the US so, really, you have no excuse. Also, some posters for the film have been revealed, and they're quite striking in their way.

- Joel Siegel has passed away. A former roommate of Terry Gilliam and long time film critic, he recently became infamous for his walk-out protest during a screening of Clerks 2.

- Slate have a nice slideshow on 'the secrets of Brad Bird'.

- Penny Marsall is going back to the diamond (Is that apt slang? I don't know anything about sport at all) with a film about Effra Manley, the first woman inducted into the Baseball hall of fame. Apparently, Hilary Swank and Demi Moore are front runners for the lead.

- Liam Neeson is set to star in Richard Eyre's The Other Man opposite Juliette Binoche. Charles Wood has co-written the script with Eyre. I'm keen to see who will shoot this - Eyre has a great taste in cinematographers.

- Roland Emmerich's 10000 BC had pretty much fallen off of the radar, but MTV just picked up a blip.

- The Weinsteins have got their oar in the waters of Korean animation too, now.

- The Sun have spuriously misinterpreted Daniel Craig to suggest he's quitting Bond after the next film.

- Latino Review have Sam Raimi weighing up two options: The Grays or No Man's Land. They each feature alien invaders in some fashion or another.

- A paparazzi snap of Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf together on the Indiana Jones set has been unveiled.

- Jason O'Mara has taken the lead role in Life On Mars US.

- Kristen Bell has been snapped on the set of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, in which she stars with Russell Brand. Yes, that Russell Brand.

- The MPAA have filed law suits against two sites that help pirates do their dirty bidding.

- Jim Carrey's Sober Buddies seems to be in slightly bad taste.

- This is hilarious, and disturbing, and (almost definitely) not true : a Paris Hilton biopic is in development, to star Lindsay Lohan and with a Britney Spears soundtrack.

And I'm going to publish this now and then make moves on a second Minesweeper in a couple of minutes. I've got a pile of things to get through, but I don't want to keep this post hanging any longer.
