Movie News Today

Sony is pursing James Cameron to direct a new "Cleopatra" film. *Yawn*

Amy Adams is close to joining the cast of the new "Muppets" movie, which will DEFINITELY be the best "Muppets" movie of the last 5 years or so.

JJ Abrams has a new project. He's been pretty lazy lately so it's about time.

Tom Hardy, whose turn in "Inception" was one of the most underrated factors in the film, has been recruited by Chris Nolan for a role in the third "Batman" movie.

In "Unnecessary Sequel" news of the day, a second "Top Gun" may be in the offing. Because anytime you can make a sequel 24 years after the original, you gotta do it.

Ridley Scott is chasing Natalie Portman to star in his upcoming "Alien" prequels. Not that Sir Scott needs my approval but that's pretty much perfect casting in my opinion.

The LA Times delivers an excellent little article about the new brand of TV comedy that mixes heart in along with the humor.

Wired presents 10 things you didn't know about "The Empire Strikes Back," excerpts from a new book about the film's production. I'm buying this book, by the way.

Finally, while this column by Bill Simmons (my favorite sports writer) is about sports, it's an excellent look at the role of the reporter and the craziness that is Twitter. Great read.
