Punisher: War Zone

Comic Book Resources has posted here a ton of new interview links as the film get ready for release. Here 5 questions from CBR, here is Lexi Alexander talking to Superhero Hype, over here she talks about her choice for the director of the next installment with Superhero Flix and here with Sci Fi Wire she talks about the tone and style of the film.

Wanted 2

Common spoke here to MTV about the idea of a prequel to the original, saying: "It would be best with Angelina, if they could make it a prequel. That would be great. Because you didn't get to know my character too well; you didn't get to know a lot about him. I haven't heard what they are doing, they are keeping it tight right now probably until they get the script written. But I'm enthused that they have a sequel."

TV DVD News has posted info about "Rick & Steve the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World" (Season 2) here, "My Wife and Kids" (Season 1) here, "Tripping the Rift" (Season 3) here, "SpongeBob SquarePants" (Vs The Big One) here, "True Blood" (Season 1) here, "The Man from U.N.C.L.E." (The Return of the Man from U.N.C.L.E.: The Fifteen Years Later Affair) here.

The Creature From the Black Lagoon

Gary Ross is quoted here in Sci Fi Wire about the scientific underpinnings for his script for the 2009 remake of the original 1954 version. Ross said: "We found some scientific underpinnings for it, which my dad actually felt in the original. In fact, he had based it on a lungfish that was found around that time. So a lot of that was his [input] and kind of the conflict between science and [nature]. I don't think we're going to wink at the audience and make it silly in any sort of way. I think we're going to take it seriously. We're going to treat it with a certain amount of dignity. We're not approaching this in a retro campy kind of way. It's set in present day. There are reasonable scientific underpinnings for it. It should really be a really interesting journey into the jungle both for the characters and for the audience. It's not a reference to what the original is. It's not referential that way. We take it sort of seriously."

Remake Fever

Latino Review reports here that among the new flock of remakes being announced are "Romancing the Stone," "Soylent Green," "They Live!" and "Arthur." "My kingdom for a new idea!" (Hey, they could film one of my novels. No, they're too original)
