Movie Minesweeper - The Fucithalmic Edition

Katie Holmes as Wonder Woman, Mandy Patinkin, David Milch, Hitman, Mike Nichols, Frances McDorman, Morgan Freeman, Clifford Odets, Jake Gyllenhaal, Painkiller Jane, Finnish TV, Fred Bast*rd, Johnny Vegas, Shilpa Shetty, James Bond, Ash vs. Freddy vs. Jason.

- Katie Holmes is in talks to
play Wonder Woman. Apparently. What happened to Coby Smulders?

- The next show from David Milch is yet another cop show, this time set in the 70s and centred on a Vietnam Vet going into deep cover.

- Nodbody's very much pleased with Criminal Minds quitter Mandy Patinkin, so he's filmed his final scenes with no other actors and a specially recruited crew.

- Some new Hitman pics have rolled out.

- Mike Nichols is returning to Broadway with a revival of Clifford Odets' The Country Girl. Frances McDormand and Morgan Freeman are to star. This may be followed by the political drama Farragut North, possibly starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

- Painkiller Jane has been cancelled.

- Are 40,000 Finnish households about to be left without TV? The country goes to digital broadcasting only in September and not everybody is ready for the switchover.

- Uli Meyer animation made Fred Bast*rd as a pilot for a possible Johhny Vegas series. I like the designs more than the animation. Link seen at Cartoon Brew.

- Shilpa Shetty is being linked to Bond 22 but I don't buy it.

- The treatment to the stalled Ash vs. Freddy vs. Jason film is being adapted into a comic book instead.

I'd rather have Shilpa Shetty as Wonder Woman. Or Johnny Vegas.

Go to see David Milch going back to cop showery. Those first few series of NYPD BLUE were rather peerless, and Milch is an even better writer now.
