Movie News Today

It seems Hollywood has rediscovered Stephen King. With "The Dark Tower" already in the works, Warner Brothers has now moved forward with plans to put together a movie adaptation of "The Stand." I would say those might be King's best work so kudos to Hollywood.

Joaquin Phoenix is mulling over a role in next year's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" which would effectively end his retirement.

Val Kilmer has signed on to star with John Gries ("Napoleon Dynamite") in a movie based on a Texan who went from worthless alcoholic to philanthropist. If you're keeping track at home, there are now three people who care about Val Kilmer's career: me, my buddy Kyle, and Val Kilmer. Man do I want good things for him. Ah well.

The National gives us a fine article on the difficulty of casting "The Hobbit."

Five time Oscar winning composer John Barry has died of a heart attack. Great list of credits to his name.
