- Jessica Biel has opted not to take the Wonder Woman role. So, whoever we do end up with, we know they're probably second choice at best. And they'll know it too.
- David Goyer is to direct Baltimore or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire, from a script by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden, creators of the original illustrated novel (which, for the great grandparents reading this, isn't the same thing as a graphic novel or a comic).
- The Bizarro version of the above story: Russel Mulcahy is to direct Zen and the Art of Slaying Vampires, from a script by Stephen-Elliot Altman, author of the original novel.
- On the day Across the Universe has opened across the... er... well, a fair bit of the world anyway, some sprinklings of news about Julie Taymor's Spider-Man musical have come raining down. If only this had any chance of ever becoming a film.
- Sam Weisman has signed on to direct The Miracle of St. Anthony. It's one of those uplifting sports dramas, once again from a true story and, as seems most common, the sport is basketball.
- Bottle Rocket is headed to Criterion. What happened, Wes? Why did your career go so far wrong so quickly?
- The Indiana Jones IV shoot has moved - SPOILER! - to a soundstage recreation of the warehouse from Raiders.
- Scott Rudin and Miramax have snapped up the movie rights to Junot Diaz' debut novel, The Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
- The American Oldboy remake isn't as dead as many would hope.
- There's a fair size of web domains registered to Pixar currently.
- While Ray Winstone won't be in the Sweeney movie, it looks like director Nick Love is houdning Paul Bettany to replace him. Er... okay. That's a really odd switch.
- Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman each have a voice role in The Fantastic Mr. Fox.
Dinner time... back later...
