As you’ve likely heard by now, Adrianne Palicki is David E. Kelley’s new Wonder Woman. Solid casting. Pity she’ll be wasted on such a suck of a show. Linda Carter supports the new show, for whatever that is worth.

Mila Kunis is out for the Hughes Bros.’ live action Akira and in for Sam Raimi’s Oz, The Great and Powerful along with James Franco (replacing Robert Downey, Jr.) in the titular role. Kunis will play the Wicked Witch of the West in her younger, fairer years. Raimi, Franco and Kunis make an appealing team, particularly when paired with the great writer David Lindsay-Abaire. I’m in. (Read my review of Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell here.)

As desperately hoped for last week, Shane Black is confirmed to direct Iron Man 3. Hells to the yes!

As desperately dreaded last week, DJ Caruso will be directing the Preacher adaptation. This is going to be devastatingly shitty, y’all. Continue reading

Extra! Extra! Burglars rot in hell for all eternity!

As I watched Slither with the hubs for the umpteenth time on Saturday, reveling in the brilliance and the carnage, I was suddenly struck by a cold flash of panic. “Oh my god,” I muttered, chewing on my bottom lip, wringing my hands, prostrate with chagrin.

 “I forgot to put Slither on my Top 50 List.”

Now, as it so happens, after days of self-castigation and a vow to put things right as soon as I got back to my computer (Marla’s been on vacation!), I realized that, no, I actually had NOT forgotten to place Slither on my Top 50 Horror Movies of the Decade list. I also, in case you were wondering, did not neglect to include it on my Top 10 Halloween Must-See Movies list. Apparently, I’ve written about Slither all up and down this blog, so I have finally acknowledged that my misplaced anxiety and guilt are due to the fact that this mother needs a post of her very own! And so she shall have. Continue reading
