Movie News Today

Robert Downey, Jr. is attempting to get a Perry Mason film franchise off the ground with himself attached to star. Personally I probably could have just written "Robert Downey, Jr. will act" and I'd be in.

Thanks to the success of The Lion King, Disney has announced it will re-release some other classics, including Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid. Re-releases are all well and good but man, I wish this 3D thing would die.

Famed director Werner Herzog will play the villain in Tom Cruise's upcoming Jack Reacher film, One Shot.  That's kind of cool, right?

Jason Statham is in talks to join the cast of the sixth Fast and Furious film which... sounds... AWWWWESOME!!! I'm not even kind of kidding.

Movie Muse has a guest column on 50/50 written by a cancer survivor. Excellent review of a film that could very well be my favorite of the year when it's all said and done. Read it.

Ruth over at Flix Chatter reviews Machine Gun Preacher which I unfortunately missed out on a couple of weeks ago. Check it out!


  1. Looks like RDJ will be Perry Mason now. another detective...

  2. As I've said before, I think RDJ could probably walk on screen and sit quietly in a chair with a book and I'd watch it.

  3. I'll have you know, as soon as I read about the Perry Mason movie, I started humming the theme song in my head. Thanks a bunch.
