It’s News Day Tuesday!

Apologies! I know all I’ve done on ye olde blogge lately is NDTD and link to my Badass Digest posts, and please trust that I am duly chagrined about that. I’m going to move this baby back to the front burner as soon as I get everything sorted, but thanks for your patience in the meantime. As a token of my gratitude, please enjoy an extra-newsy News Day!Wicked

Amidst the virtual crap storm of Oz movies that are floating around Hollywood these days, the project nearest to my heart is finally coming to life! ABC is developing an adaptation of Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked–from which the blockbuster musical sprung–in the ideal format for it, a mini-series.

Lots of The Green Hornet news as its release date looms. Go behind the scenes here, gape in amazement at the outrageous budget along with Seth Rogen here, and read a great interview with Rogen here where he gives a tidbit about Seth and Jay vs. The Apocalypse and name-drops The Mist (hell yes!) as its inspiration.

Monsters director Gareth Edwards is going to billionuple his budget by taking on  Godzilla next.

the hobbit

A whole bunch of folks confirmed for The Hobbit this week, including Ian McKellan as Gandalf, Andy Serkis as Gollum, and Elijah Wood and Ian Holm as Frodo and Future Bilbo for confusing reasons.

Argento’s Deep Red is getting the blu-ray treatment, and that is delightful.

Bond 23 is a go and still to be directed by Sam Mendes and starring Daniel Craig, according to MGM. Yeah, we’ll see about that, MGM. Now where’s my Cabin in the Woods?!

There’s a new John Carpenter horror movie coming out, and lordy knows I loved typing those words just now! The trailer is nice, the poster is weak, but whatever! The movie will RULE.

alien

More vague rumors about the Alien prequel. Names include Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace (!!!) and Michelle Yeoh, but it all means pretty much nothing at this point.

Check out some new Sucker Punch banner art at the link.

paul

The domestic trailer for Paul is up, and varies from the international trailer only in giving more screen time to Jane Lynch, but that alone is reason enough for me to post it.

Cronenberg is going to tackle Don DeLillo’s Cosmopolis and Robert Pattinson will lead, co-starring with Paul Giammati and Marion Cotillard. Obviously the most important piece of information in this article is CRONENBERG YAY!
