Pirates of the Caribbean 4

The National Enquirer (not a source that we usually quote, but this one is available from other sources too) says here that Zac Efron is being considered for the cast of the sequel. They also say that when Johnny Depp had balked at the 2012 film, Efron was considered to be his replacement.

The Odyssey

Variety says that Brad Pitt will star in a science fiction retelling of Homer's "The Odyssey" to be directed by George Miller.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Battlestar Galactica" (Season 4.0) here, "The Texan" (Best of . . .) here, "The Waltons" (Season 8) here, "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You!" (Vol. 1) here, "Freaks and Geeks" (Yearbook Edition) here, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" (Season 1) here.


Latino Review tells us here that Joel Silver's "Grayskull" (another big screen adaptaion of "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe") is dead. There are so many reasons that you should just accept and not ask why.

Bourne 4

The Hollywood Reporter says here that though director Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon both have said that "The Bourne Ultimatum" would conclude the series, Universal has hired Ultimatum co-writer George Nolfi to write a fourth Bourne film. Word is that this one will be an original story not based on any of Robert Ludlum's novels.
