Movie News Today

Movieline delivers the most shocking deaths in TV sitcom history. Lots of spoilers if you really care about a TV show that went off the air a decade ago but you still haven't caught up with yet.

I, along with every other fan of these stories, have no idea how Frodo Baggins will tie into "The Hobbit." But Elijah Wood has confirmed he will reprise his role in the highly anticipated screen adaptation of the beloved novel. I'm guessing he'll play a part in the second film, which Jackson is sort of making up on his own.

Not sure what to think about this one but Scott Derrickson ("The Exorcism of Emily Rose") has signed on to direct "Goliath," a "300"-esque take on the Biblical story of David and Goliath. Hmm.

Trent Reznor will provide the score for David Fincher's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." After what Reznor did on "The Social Network," I'd just assume he provide the score for any movie. Imagine how great "Dumb and Dumber" would be with a tense, pulse-pounding, driving musical force behind it. Okay, maybe not.
