Iron Man 2

Here are the tweets by Jon Favreau on the set of the film. The movie is set to open on May 7, 2010.

Dead of Night

There is a bunch of stuff online about the upcoming 2010 comic book adaptation. First, Shock Till You Drop has the first picture of Brandon Routh as Dylan Dog here. Here they have a preview of their set visit. Then Sci Fi Wire has a picture of Taye Diggs in character as "the sleek and sinister leader of a family of vampires in the movie" here. And here they have info about their set visit.

The Irishman

Empire Movies reports here that Ray Stevenson, Christopher Walken and Val Kilmer will star in this adaptation of the Rick Porrello book "To Kill the Irishman: The War That Crippled the Mafia." to be directed by Jonathan Hensleigh (who also wrote the screenplay). The 2010 mob drama tells of the life of mobster Danny Greene (Stevenson), the man who ran Cleveland's criminal underworld during the late 1970s. Walken plays the loan-sharking nightclub owner Shondor Birns and Kilmer is a Cleveland cop who befriends Greene.
