Captain America

ComicMix has up this story, including a new interview with writer/director Zak Penn where he said this about the "Captain America" movie: "I'm attached to it. I'm also supposed to write and direct one of the X-Men spin-off movies for Fox, but that's not a Marvel film. It's not a pure Marvel movie. It's a Fox thing. I can't sell you the whole idea, but it involves a younger group of X-Men at the beginning. It is a little bit like that (X-Men: First Class). I don't want to give away the concept of it, but it is a good idea. It is a little bit more of getting back to the classic X-Men. Some of the complaints we've talked about, it would address those directly."

Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines

This story at Comics2Film tells us that EC Comics creator Al Feldstein will be a creative consultant for the film. Feldstein says: "I am truly enthusiastic to be associated with 'Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines' as the film's creative adviser. This film will be about the most exciting editorial and artistic creative period in comic book history, which was then followed by the most devastating, self-destructive and self-castrating period in its history. As E.C.'s major creative force, I am truly hopeful and optimistic that, finally, the whole truth will be told."

Ghost in the Shell

Variety says here that DreamWorks Pictures plans to adapt the future-set police thriller as a 3-D live-action feature. Steven Spielberg said:"'Ghost in the Shell' is one of my favorite stories. It's a genre that has arrived, and we enthusiastically welcome it to DreamWorks."

Movie Library in Your Pocket

Scientists at IBM have announced that they have developed a storage device capable of holding a hundred times more information than any in current use. In Science those scientists from the IBC research center in San Jose, CA, said their device, smaller than those used in iPods, would be able to hold about 3,500 full-length films, and use so little power they could run on a single battery charge for weeks at a time. They also hinted that the devices could be pre-programmed, eliminating the need for slow downloads.
