Marsters, Marsters, Everywhere

Much to the joy of women in my family, there are a ton of stories out there today about James Marsters. First Comic Book Resources has this discussion with him about "Dragonball: Evolution." Then Sci Fi Wire has 3 different stories about him, first this one about him playing Buzz Aldrin in the made for TV Film "Moonshot." Second this story about the SCI FI Channel original movie "High Plains Invaders" and how it is a total re-imagining of the western. Finally, this article about the possibility of a Spike movie growing more distant, but not impossible.

The Losers

The Hollywood Reporter says here that Idris Elba and Zoe Saldana are in talks to join Jeffrey Dean Morgan in the Peter Berg and James Vanderbilt 2011 adaptation of the Vertigo comic . The story tells of a Special Forces team left for dead on a mission after being betrayed by their handler, but regroup for revenge. Morgan plays the team leader, while Elba plays Rogue, the group's scarred, money hungry second in command. Saldana plays the cold-blooded loose cannon Aisha. The film is directed by Sylvain White.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Voltron: Defender of the Universe" (Fleet of Doom) here, "Eastbound & Down" (Season 1) here, "Monk" (Season 7) here, "Star Trek" (Season 1, Blue-ray) here, "Prison Break" (Season 4) here, "Pushing Daisies" (Season 2) here.


Disney showed footage at Comic Con last summer of a film they were calling "TR2N." We knew it was the 2011 sequel to Tron. Then word came out that it would be called "Tron 2.0" (like the Video Game), then just "Tron 2." But at ShowWest the Disney folk confirmed that is will just be called "TRON."

Men in Black 3

JoBlo reports here that Sony's president Rory Bruer told folks at the ShoWest Conference that the film is in pre-production and both Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith are interested in the project.
