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. Continue reading

christmas evil

Happy holidays, spooks. My gift to all the good boys and girls is plenty of juicy scoop, straight from their blogs to my blog to you!

cabin in the woods

It’s a Christmas miracle! MGM’s allegedly getting back on its feet, which is good news for the next Bond film, for The Hobbit and oh! oh! For Joss and Drew’s The Cabin in the Woods!

paul

The trailer for Greg Mottola’s Paul, starring the unbeatable duo of Pegg and Frost along with Seth Rogen’s charming voice and every other comedic actor I have ever enjoyed in the past five years, is just totally adorable.

katee sackhoff

In what sounds like a pretty clever conceit, BSG badass Katee Sackhoff will play the title character in Sexy Evil Genius. Could be great, despite the fact that it will be headed by the showrunner on ABC Fam’s Greek, which is probably not a good show.

heather morris

Glee‘s resident delightful dumbass Heather Morris confirms that she’s in talks to play Buffy in the ill-advised remake. I still don’t give a shit about this remake, but that’s not bad casting. Continue reading

Oooh, I have oodles of scooples for you today, my little lovelies! I love when the internet ‘splodes on itself, don’t you?

wolfman

I really, really, really want to see this movie, okay? Benicio! Sir Anthony! Hugo! WOLFMAN! Thanks to the always-awesome Backline Show  for the link. Check out the vintage-y trailer and rub your hands together in delicious anticipation, á la Marla.

Yeah, well, McG, people in hell want ice water. And speaking of people in hell, DON’T MAKE ME WATCH ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR STUPID MOVIES.

presskid by you.

Hello, homies! I know I’ve done pretty much nothing but NDTD on the old blog lately, but fear not—after October, my life returns to normalcy and I will throw myself back into this blog with a ferocity that will FREAK YOU OUT, okie doke? In the meantime: SCOOP!

sorority row by you.

You can check out the opening 3 minutes of Sorority Row here. It looks…precisely the way I thought it would look, which is to say, retarded. Anything that bills itself as”Audrina Patridge’s new slasher flick” sure isn’t aiming high, is it? Hey Andy from Step Up 2–what are you doing in this movie??
