Now THIS is cool! THE WICKER MAN, the classic early 70's horror/mystery is being remade by Neil Labute (IN THE COMPANY OF MEN) with Nicolas Cage in the Edward Woodward role. Shooting is to begin in July after Nic Cage finishes filming a little film called GHOST RIDER. In very ODD casting news for this film, Rowan Atkinson is in talks for the Christopher Lee role...

George Lucas needs to die! Thanks to the new, 'really cool' 3-D film techniques, Lucas has decided to fuck the original trilogy up EVEN MORE by re-editing them AND making them large screen, 3-D spectaculars, to be released into theaters again two years after EPISODE III... GOD DAMN I hate this guy.

Ben Affleck is gonna be Superman... well, George Reeves at least. TRUTH, JUSTICE, AND THE AMERICAN WAY is a new Reeves biopic about the actors death... WAIT! So Ben Affleck DIES in this film. That's earned my money right there.

You want SUPERMAN spoilers... well, from the get go, Lois will be married and pregnant at the start of the film and she's NOT married to Clark Kent. Also, Parker Posey has joined the cast as Lex Luthor's female cohort, like what Ms. Teschmacher was in the first film. Lastly, Superman will sport TWO costumes in the film, taking a page from the BATMAN toy line it seems, with the normal red and blue costume as well as a deep space costume similar to the black and silver suit he wore when he came back after the Doomsday/Death of Superman storyline. Hmm...

Joss Whedon was finally officiall announced as the director for DC's WONDER WOMAN. Let's hope he still has some Buffy in him...

The Tall Man lives again! New Line Cinema is bringing the PHANTASM series back. Like what they're doing with the EVIL DEAD remake, the plan is to have an all new cast with a new director. The original's writer/director, Don Coscarelli will be writing and producing but will pick a new director. New Line sees this 'untapped franchise' as the next Scream or Friday The 13th.

"WOAH! Watch me fuck up ANOTHER potential franchise" is what Keanu Reeves should be saying now that he's agreed to star in Columbia Pictures THE 8TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD.

Some people will do ANYTHING for a buck. George Hamilton is producing and starring in the long forgotten about sequel to his 1978 comedy/horror film LOVE AT FIRST BITE; SURPRISINGLY titled LOVE AT SECOND BITE. Filming is set to start in the fall.

From the same animation team the gave us ROBOTS and ICE AGE, comes Dr. Seusss' HORTON HEARS A WHO. I hope I don't hear a CAT IN THE HAT sized travesty with this one, when it hits screens in 2007.

That actually was a funny movie. "Come back, black chicken!"

I'm really interested to see who is cast as the lead in Wonder Woman ... Had Jennifer Garner not played Elektra, my vote would be for her.

My girlfriend picked up the original Wonder Woman TV series on DVD (Season 1 - and maybe 2), and it's PRICELESS - 1970's cheese-factor times 10.

It's hard to believe what passed for entertaining television back then.

I imagine that his upcoming film Serenity will be a decent gauge of his remaining Buffocity.

That reminds me of the rumors that Sarah Michelle Gellar was pursuing/in consideration for the Wonder Woman part. Would Joss taking the helm be a good thing or a bad thing for those possibilities? In all honesty, I'm not really sure who -would- make a good Wonder Woman. You have to be powerful, combat-oriented and yet regal and beautiful. The kind of woman people are in awe of...and I don't think they're going to cast Angela Bassett. While I'd love to see Sandra Bullock or Catherine Zeta-Jones wearing a WW costume, I can't see them playing the part. SMH might be okay, if they play up the rookie princess angle rather than a fully developed WW, though.

They better keep Angus Scrimm (the only Tall Man), and I've read that Reggie Bannister will be back too (and the 4 barrelled shotgun), with a recasting of Mike (with a "name" star).

The floating balls are cool. The Tall Man is awesome. The concept is great. Unfortunately, the plots are very confusing, and the fact that you need to watch all 4 movies to understand what is going on (and even then it's a stretch) os a bit off-putting. The whole undead dwarf thing and the travelling through dimensions caused all of my friends to basically tell me that my taste is movies is off the deep end. I hope the production company doesn't make it a "teens have sex in a haunted mansion while they get impaled on things" movie because that's about the only "mainstream" horror stuff that's getting made these days (unless it's a remake of a Japanese Horror movie). Of course, Coscarelli is the guy who basically took his name off of the "Beastmaster" movie because he hated it so much, so I'm thinking he might be able to stand up if they want him to go in a horribly different direction.

In 20 years, they might be saying the same thing about this era of TV.

As for my pick for the new Wonder Woman; how about Angelina Jolie? Or if you want to look in the Buffyverse; maybe Eliza Dushku?

Monica Belluci would make a terrific Wonder Woman.
I'm glad to see that DC is being more serious about its comic movies after the Catwoman fiasco. Between Chris Nolan on Batman Begins, Bryan Singer on Superman and now Joss, DC is coming up strong with some of the newer Marvel projects (FF, Ghost Rider) looking kind of curious.

Last I heard Charisma Carpenter is the front runner for Wonder Woman. Not that I have any interest in the project whatsoever.


Also, has anyone else seen that newbite floating around about Chloe Sevigny all but naming The Black Cat as Spidey 3's villain? Gah. That is so not the directioon I want to see the franchise take.

I'd heard Jessica Biel has the WW role wrapped up, but it seems like depending on who you read, every actress who might vaguely fit the part has been proposed. I've even seen some folks suggesting Lauren Graham (aka Lorelai Gilmore)...

If only DC can make a great Green Lantern flick ... and not that rumored "comedic" version that had Jack Black's name attatched to it some time ago.

I've heard that too, but it was a while ago when word was that SMG might be going for it too. Back then I thought that she wanted to distance herself from comicy type characters, but the way things are going for her now, who knows what she'll take.

I'd definately take CC over Sarah or Eliza if we're just talking Buffy people. Either of the other two brings a whole lot of stereotypes you'd have to break real early into the film in order for anyone to enjoy it. Plus, she could play the regal/superhero type parts as well as the ordinary citizen parts better than the other two, who always look like they're 'acting normal'.

As far as Joss goes as director, I hope the movie turns out okay, but the guy hasn't really had much big success on anything outside the Buffy franchise. Toy Story and that's about it, AFAI remember.

It's kind of funny... Last weekend, Joss Whedon was all smiles at Wizard World LA giving 'hints' that one of the Serenity actresses would be his Wonder Woman, then on Tuesday he does an interview with Variety stating that no cast member from any of his shows are in the running for the part.

Ofcourse, this could be a swerve of some sort, but he was saying that they're giving him too much money to make the film to use a 'television actress'.

Nice way to stab your friends in the back Joss!
