Movie Minesweeper - The Iris Examination Edition

- Anne of Green Gables is coming back. There's a very now casting call out: upload yourself to YouTube if you want to be in it. I saw this story at Cinematical.

- The full list of cinemas showing the new digital rerelease of Goldfinger across the UK has been unveiled.

- The poor chimpanzee actor cast as Chim Chim in Speed Racer doesn't seem to be having a good time. He bit a human actor and was allegedly beaten. PETA are on the case, but their protests seem to be yielding no results so far.

- The new Spider Baby DVD sounds pretty good.

- Danny Boyle is chewing the Slum Dog Millionaire plot over again. Nothing has changed since we last heard about it.

- A selection of Larry Sanders episodes have gone on sale through iTunes. Perhaps if they're a huge success, the remaining installments (the majority - this is a meagre sampling) will get unleashed.

- Michel Gagne is offering a nice insight into the development of just a moment of Ratatouille.

- Woody Allen has revealed a number of cast members from his next film: Scarlett Johansson, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Patricia Clarkson, Kevin Dunn, Chris Messina, Zak Orth, Carrie Preston, Pablo Schreiber, Abel Folk, Lluis Homar, Joel Joan, Julio Perillan and Mireira Ros.

- The Grey Gardens musical (yep - derived from the Maysles' documentary - what next? A can can version of W.R - Mysteries of the Organism?) is to close at the end of July. Will Drew Barrymore's fiction film adaptation ever happen?

- The Flash Gordon promotional panel has been videotaped and uploaded.

I got sick of waiting for Larry Sanders to show up on DVD. They're easily available if you know where to look...
