JJ Abrams has officially signed on to direct "Star Trek 2." Now maybe we can get rolling on that sucker!
Jason Bateman again reiterates his plans/hopes to start shooting the much anticipated "Arrested Development" movie. Look, I know this is never going to happen but as one of the four original viewers of the show who campaigned tirelessly to get people to watch when it was still on the air, I'm going to continue to hold onto the lie and report these little pieces of news as if it were a sure thing.
Gerald McRaney has joined the cast of Tarantino's "Django Unchained." Am I alone in thinking Major Dad plus Tarantino is pretty awesome?
A remake of "Point Break" is in the works. There are two "Point Break" camps: the camp that thinks it is the greatest action film of the early 90s and the camp that thinks it's a cheesy nightmare of a film featuring a disgustingly robotic performance by Keannu Reeves (you can guess which camp I'm in). Both camps can agree, however, that it absolutely DOES NOT need to be remade. If someone tries to remake "Top Gun" I will lose it. Fair warning, Hollywood.
In other news, I've been bashing on Keannu Reeves for probably 15 years and I just learned that he has two n's in his name (per IMDB.) Good to know.
Terrence over at ScarletSp1der takes a look at "The Italian Job", one of the funnest films of the last decade, and drops some knowledge. Check it out!
Mark at Fast Film Reviews delves into "Higher Ground" which I unfortunately missed this weekend and probably won't get a chance to see until DVD. It's getting good buzz, though, so check it out if you have the chance.
Finally, the trailer for Cameron Crowe's "We Bought a Zoo" debuted today and while it's slightly more obviously "feel good-y" than I'd hoped, both Crowe and Damon belong on my "I Will See Anything You're Involved With" list.
