Nightmare on Elm Street

Latino Review says here that Samuel Bayer has been hired to direct the 2010 remake of the 1984 original film.

Iron Man 2

Now that Emily Blunt's scheduling problems may take her out of the Black Widow role, rumors are rife about a replacement. Entertainment Weekly reported here that Scarlett Johansson is in the running, saying: "Sources around Hollywood say Johansson has indeed met with the filmmakers and is interested in taking the role of Russian superspy Natasha Romanoff, who doubles as Black Widow." While Eliza Dushku said on The Howard Stern Show: "They're doing 'Iron Man 2,' and I'm so perfect for the Black Widow character, that they just need to get into it. They need to understand I just learned Russian because I had to play a Russian girl in 'Dollhouse.'"

Plastic Man

James McTeigue confirmed here to Ain't It Cool News that the next Wachowski Brothers project was to be the Eel O'Brien story, with McTeigue giving Second Unit support. He also said that the film has been delayed indefinitely due to a major shake up of projects at Warner Brothers. But if the Brothers are offered the chance to reboot Superman as a trilogy he might direct Plastic Man.

The Blair Witch Project 3

DanMyrick and Ed Sanchez want to make another sequel. Moviehole reports here that Myrick said: "Myself and the producer, Gregg Hale, have been talking and revisiting the idea behind a prequel that explores the original story and mythology of Blair Witch folklore. Ultimately the decision is up to Lionsgate, which owns the rights to the project and whether or not they want to take the leap with us. But we're developing some ideas and exploring some storylines that we like, and checking out some locations. We'd like to do one. It would be great."
