The Green Lantern

SCI FI Wire reports here several hints about the film from writer Marc Guggenheim. On Firday he said: "In fact, I'm ... delivering another draft today. So it continues to move forward." There is much more on the site. (I personally have a problem with the addition of the "The," who ever called him The Green Lantern? No one I've known.)


Cinefools repeats a rumor here that Dwayne "The Rock" (I'm sure he will love it when no one needs to use that title to identify him) Johnson will replace Arnold Schwarzenegger in the remake.

Stretch Armstrong

IESB reports here that there is a strong possibility that the toy based film, slated for release in April, 2011, could be directed by Ron Howard.

TV DVD News has posted info about "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" (Season 4) here,
"The Unit" (Season 4) here, "My Name is Earl" (Season 4) here, "How I Met Your Mother" (Season 4) here, "The Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show" (Complete Series) here, "The World's Greatest Super Friends" (Lost Episodes) here.

Wanted 2 quotes director Timur Bekmambetov as saying here about the 2011 film, bugeted at $150 million, and starring the returning Angelina Jolie, this: "In July we will start preparation for the film. I think in the late autumn or winter shooting will be performed. The shooting will take place in America, India and Russia."


Moviehole quotes writer/producer Ed Neumeier (who is not part of the 2010 remake) here as saying: "Obviously, I hope they do a good job and don't make a mess of it like they managed to with RoboCop 2 and 3. Darren Aronofsky, the director of record last time I checked, is a talented guy and I presume he'll do something interesting. The biggest problem the new movie may face is MGM's shaky financial health."

Bloody Disgusting says here that Vertigo Entertainment will adapt the story of a reporter who attempts to track down the real person who inspired the William Freidkin movie.

Special thanks to Movie for so many of the dynamite movie posters we use from time to time. You cannot find a better place to run down those new or classic posters.
