Movie News Today

Adam McKay, writer and director of "Anchorman", says the now defunct sequel was going to be a musical. Darn you, Paramount!

I'm always up for whatever Will Smith brings to the table. One of my all time faves. But... this potential project that would have him playing a vampirical Cain (as in Cain and Abel) is admittedly a bit off.

Empire provides us with some shots of a low-budget little movie called "Monsters." As much as I love sci-fi, I'm usually quite wary of these little "gems." But "District 9" changed the game for me last year, showing just how much can be done with good writing and $30 million. I confess interest here.

It seems Soap Box Office favorite was in the house for a screening of his newest piece of awesome, only to have the film shut down due to a malfunctioning air conditioner. Funny because this is exactly what happened to me except we the audience sat through the whole thing in desert-like temperatures and no one asked for my autograph afterward.

Apparently the folks over at Columbia Pictures weren't paying attention to the lackluster returns for Nicholas Cage's newest film "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" as they have agreed to bankroll another "Ghost Rider" movie. Painful.

Say what you will for Ben Affleck's acting abilities, the guy is a gifted director. Just saw the trailer for his newest film, "The Town", and it looks outstanding.
