Movie News Today

Paul Haggis, who hasn't done much directing since his "Crash" won Best Picture in 2004, has added to his production schedule with a movie called "Third Person", which sounds basically like "Crash."

Director Timur Bekmambetov (no idea how that's pronounced) has been secretly filming a "Cloverfield"-esque alien movie centering around the cancelled Apollo 18 mission. I've heard nothing of this movie and now it's slated for a March 2011 release date. Interested.

I've never been a big fan of "Escape From New York." Too 80s for me. But, I am a big fan of superstar-in-the-making Jeremy Renner who has been rumored to replace Kurt Russell in the remake.
