Justice League of America

Comic Book Movie has posted here a couple of insights into the delayed film, based on the DC Comic. Concept artist Daniel James Cox wrote on his blog: "It's unfortunate, but the Writer's strike has delayed further pre-production on the Justice League movie (i was working on it as a concept artist/illustrator) until later in the year. as a comic fan, i'm happy because the script does need another rewrite. however, the art dept has been doing some amazing artwork, so the team and I will all assemble back at Fox Studios in June/July to pick up where we left off!" Another thought comes from Australian fight choreographer Richard Norton on his personal blog: "Well, Just received word that "Justice League of America" movie has been pushed back until July, which technically means I am unemployed, again! Hah, what a business I am in."

Beyond a Reasonable Doubt

Michael Douglas, Amber Tamblyn and Jesse Metcalfe have joined the cast of the remake of Fritz Lang's 1956 RKO film noir film "Beyond a Reasonable Doubt." The story tells of a journalist (Metcalfe) trying to expose a corrupt district attorney (Douglas) by making himself the prime, but innocent, suspect in a murder. The district attorney sets out to get rid of all the evidence the journalist has that proves his innocence. Peter Hyams will direct.

Strike News

The general belief is that that negotiators for the Writers Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers will put their reported agreement on a new contract into writing. Here is the Associated Press story about the draft of the deal which, they say, could be available by Friday. Both the WGA's East- and West-Coast branches have called for an informational meeting on Saturday. The WGA's chief negotiator, John Bowman, is advising members that several significant differences remain to be ironed out.
