Kill Bill Vol. 3

Uma Thurman spoke to here to Total Film about the 2012 (or 2014) sequel. Thurman said thre had been discussion with Tarantino, saying: "We did chat, we did chat. He has not yet finished the script. I don't even really know if he's really started it, although I got a taste of some of his ideas and they are really good."

Spider-Man 4

MTV News asks Sam Raimi is he will be directing the fifth and sixth episodes of the franchise here. Raimi said: "You have to ask me in two-and-a-half years. Every time I make one of the 'Spider-Man' movies, I have to ask myself, 'Is the character still intriguing to me? Do I love the character? Am I dying to tell the next story of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?"

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

The Ausiello Files says here that the return of Sara Sidle to the show has been extended. Executive producer Carol Mendelsohn said: "From our point of view, the more the better. As many episodes as we can have Jorja for we want her for. The season is about bringing the family back together again, so [this] was just a natural. Jorja has been the glue that has really helped to reform the bond of our team. We will address the fact that Grissom is somewhere else and Sara is living in Vegas. Everyone on the team is a little interested. They're like, 'What's the deal? Grissom's there, you're here, how does that work?' They are a very modern couple and they have a very healthy relationship. They have found a balance in their life that allows them to still feel fulfilled in their marriage and their careers. If it works for them, it works for us."

TV DVD News has posted info about "Spaceballs: The Animated Series" (Season 1) here, "Russia's War: Blood Upon the Snow" (Mini-Series) here, "Falcon Crest" (U.S. Release) here, "The Waltons" (The Movie Collection) here, "Super Friends" (Season 1, Vol. 1) here, "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" (Vol. 3) here.


Bloody Disgusting says here that the franchise that has always been hard, some say "cursed," is still giving trouble. MGM says that the remake has been pushed back from its November 24, 2010 release date to an unspecified date in 2011.

The Avengers

MTV Splash Page reports here that Jon Favreau told them, despite what has been rumored, he is not going to be the director of the upcoming epic. Favreau said: "They'll have to [find a another director], because I'm not going to be available. It's something I'm being the executive producer on, so I'll definitely have input and a say. That's why it's good that you have the guys from Marvel like Kevin Feige, who knows the books well and has been involved with the making of all the movies, and he'll be very involved with 'Thor' and 'Cap.' You need somebody who has the perspective of all the different franchises to bring them together. I have the myopic vision of just knowing and loving Iron Man."
