Jonah Hex

SciFi Wire quotes Megan Fox in this article saying: "It's pretty serious. It's the most serious thing I've done so far." The film stars Josh Brolin and opens August 6, 2010.

X-Men Origins: Magneto

Superhero Hype says here that David Goyer spoke to them about the film, saying: "There have been some preliminary discussions. I think, at Fox, they're trying to decide if making a young X-Men film makes the most sense next, does making a 'Magneto' make the most sense next. They're just trying to decide internally who's next up."


Latino Review reports here that director Nimród Antal is the top contender to do the 2010 film.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Day Break" (Complete Series) here, "Ultraman" (Complete Series) here, "Mister Ed" (Season 1) here, "My Name Is Earl" (Season 4) here, "The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes" (Set 1) here, "Monster Force" (Vol. 1) here.

Lake Mungo

The Hollywood Reporter says here that David Leslie Johnson will write a remake of the 2008 Australian horror film for Paramount Vantage.It is the tale of paranormal events surrounding a grieving family whose teenage daughter apparently dies. It was done in a faux documentary form by writer and director Joel Anderson, but it seems the 2011 remake will be a more traditional narrative.

The Last Airbender

Empire Movies has posted a trailer for the M. Night Shyamalan film here. The movie opens in July 2010.


Ain't It Cool News tells us here that producer Bryan Fuller has left the show to concentrate on his two new pilots in the works. Fuller said: "Development was really starting to heat up, And it appears like I may be writing multiple pilots for NBC so that wasn't leaving a ton of room for 'Heroes,' unfortunately. We crafted some really great arcs for the season that I'm excited to see come to fruition. I love that cast dearly and am sad to go, but the plate -- she was over-flowing."

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.
