Movie News Today

The much "awaited" Three Stooges film from the Farrelly Brothers got a poster this weekend. Anybody remember when this was supposed to be Sean Penn, Benicio del Toro, and Jim Carrey? Well, now it's Sean Hayes, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Will Sasso. So... Yikes.

Matt Reeves of Cloverfield fame will direct the Twilight Zone film. Could be interesting.

One of the more interesting "casting" choices of the year, Dan Tractenberg, who's short based on the video game Portal became a YouTube sensation a couple of months ago, has been brought on for Universal's Crime of the Century. That's a pretty cool turn of events. Also, how has that story not been turned into a movie yet? The whole "YouTube video guy becomes a Hollywood sensation" sounds like a modern take on an 80s remake.

Oscar Isaac has landed the lead in the Coen Brothers' mysterious new project. I had never heard of Isaac until Drive. Big break for this guy.

GQ presents an interview with the great Adam Scott who is definitely not the actor from Boy Meets World that I'd have pegged as Most Likely to Succeed but who is awesome nonetheless.
