Moon Knight

Comic Book Movie announces here that: "Marvel has announced a deal with No Equal Entertainment to make Moon Knight into a TV series. No air date has been revealed."

The Taming of the Shrew

Collider says here that Diablo Cody will follow up her script for "Juno" by doing a modern adaptation of William Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" for DreamWorks.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Runaway" (Press Release) here, "Married... with Children" (Season 10) here, "Head Case" (Season 1) here, "The Clone Wars" (Season 1) here, "Rick & Steve the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World" (Season 2) here, "Ghost Hunters International" (Season 1) here.

The Foundation Trilogy

Variety reports that Rolland Emmerich is attached to direct a film adaptaton of the Isaac Asimov landbreaking cornerstone of science fiction. No word how many pictures they plan to make out of the epic, or how much they plan on dumbing it down. Boom.

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Empire Online says here that the project may be back on line. The Johnny Depp vehicle has been in a limbo of lawyers for 10 years. But now Terry Gilliam has retrieved the rights. Gilliam says: "Tony [Grisoni] and I have started rewriting Don Quixote just this last week. [We] finally got the script back. I re-read the greatest script ever written and realise we gotta get rewriting! I really wanna knock that one out in the next month or so. [I'm] starting to think I was lucky, because maybe the film will be better seven years later. It will have matured a bit longer." The documentary "Lost in La Mancha" (2002) was made about the trials of the film and film maker.
