Yeah, Sylvester Stallone is reuniting with the Expendables crew for a part 2, but Jason Statham and Jet Li aren’t the only guys Rocky will be re-teaming with in the near future. He’s now set to partner-up with his Demolition Man producer Joel Silver. Though Silver will probably not be joining in for any on-screen kill fests.

Stallone Stabs At Banter For A Change In New 'Expendables' Trailer

Silver is producing a new Stallone hitman action movie under his Dark Castle Entertainment banner. Stallone plays an older New Orleans hitman who teams up with a young NYC cop to get some vengeance. Badda-bing badda-whoa, those two types are way different. However, vengeance supersedes all cultural differences and unites us all… as people.

The story is based on the graphic novel Bullet to the Head, written by Matz and illustrated by Colin Wilson. Walter Hill is attached to direct.

Super 8 finally breaks out of its train this weekend, but if you want an indier, Shaun of the Dead-ier take on aliens… it’s coming… soon. How soon? Pretty damn soon.

Roll With New 'Attack The Block' Trailer Featuring Basement Jaxx

The highly anticipated, low budget alien invasion flick Attack the Block hits US theaters in limited release July 29. With solid buzz from SXSW, Edgar Wright as a producer and Nick Frost as a co-star, many are hoping the film will be a sleeper hit. Sony‘s opening it opposite Cowboys & Aliens, which takes some big, green alien balls. Maybe the cowboys and the street teens will end up working together to fight their common enemy. That’d be nice.

Attack The Block is the directorial debut of Joe Cornish.

Everyone knows that in the mid-70s, the Iranians hated Alan Arkin. Okay, that’s not true at all, but if it was, it’d make this story a whole lot cooler. Damn you, facts.

'The Company Men' Trailer: Ben Affleck Gets Sh*t-Canned

Arkin has signed on for Argo, the Ben Affleck directed historical drama based on a Wired magazine article. The story is about 6 US diplomat taken hostage by Iranians in 1979. In order to rescue them, the CIA teamed up with the Canadian government (nice one, Canucks) to locate the hostages, disguise them as a film crew and smuggle them out of Tehran. No doubt one of them keeps spouting “fish-eye lens” and “boffo box office” to sound knowledgeable.

Arkin will play Lester Siegel, a Hollywood producer and O.S.S. vet who’s said to be “equal parts bookie and rabbi.” Sounds like one of my relatives. (Variety)

The man who asks us to “Obey” via stickers illustrated a new poster for John Carpenter‘s They Live, the 1988 sci-fi/horror/comedy about Rowdy Roddy Piper discovering that the ruling elite are all alien life forms. My sources tell me that David Icke watches it every weekend. Check out the poster below. The Alamo Drafthouse, a place you’d be wise not to text in, is screening the film Thursday night in Austin.

Caution: potential Piranha 3DD Spoilers above. Also, watch out for mutant piranhas in general. Those guys are jerks.

I was not expecting to like the original Piranha 3D. I’m no horror buff, but between the over-the-top absurd violence, the naked underwater prancing and Christopher Lloyd basically dusting off Doc Brown, I was sold. Now they’re making Piranha 3DD and I’m anxious to see a trailer. Until then, I’ll just have to make do with these unauthorized set photos from Let’s Get Out of Here Blog. Turns out the writer lives near where the film is shooting in Wilmington, NC. Here you get a first look at the water park set, plus a bloody prop girl. I can tell a lot of happy summertime memories are gonna be made for the families that go to Big Wet. The film chomps into theaters November 23, 2011.

Directed by John Gulager, Piranha 3DD stars Ving Rhames, Gary Busey, Katrina Bowden, Paul Scheer and The Hoff, plus Christopher Lloyd returns. (Dread Central)

Charlie Sheen got fired from a TV show for drinking and talking smack on the internet. Crazy smack, but still, it’s nothing compared to the strange story of 70s beauty queen Joyce McKinney.

An IQ of 168 did not keep McKinney out of trouble. In 1977, she became a tabloid sensation for supposedly raping and kidnapping Kirk Anderson, a mormon missionary. The trailer above is for Tabloid, a documentary about the “the Mormon sex in chains case” by documentarian Errol Morris (Fog of War). McKinney describes why the rape charge is absurd, comparing it to sticking a marshmallow into a parking meter. That just became my favorite analogy of the day, possibly the month. Things only get crazier from there.

It’s a fun, slick trailer that kept my attention without spoiling too much. If you’re looking for break from monsters and superheroes this summer – though I’m not sure why you would be – and the reviews are good, I’d bring your paparazzi camera over to theaters July 15th. Check out the poster below.

The classic Looney Tunes shorts are some of the best comedy ever created. However, Bugs Bunny and pals have spent the past several decades chasing decent vehicles and their track record is only slightly better than Wile E. Coyote’s. Currently, the Looney crew have a sitcom on Cartoon Network that shows some promise, but it still feels like we’re a long way from a comeback.

In an effort to ignite the brand like a stick of TNT, Warner Bros is releasing three new animated theatrical shorts in 3D. They’ll be directed by Matthew O’Callaghan and two of them – oddly – star voice acting legend Mel Blanc. For “Daffy’s Rhapsody” and “I Tawt I Taw a Puddy Tat” (the untitled third short stars Coyote and the Roadrunner), songs Blanc recorded in the 1950s will be utilized. Okay, that’s not too creepy. I was worried they had some old answering machine messages or something they were gonna animate to.

“Daffy’s Rhapsody” is officially in season November 18, 2011, in front of Happy Feet 2. Check out the preview image below and click to embiggen. (TheWrap)

Now that MGM has survived near-death bankruptcy, the studio is ready to make another animated movie, a mere 22 years later. They’re adapting the children’s book Punk Farm by Jarrett Krosoczka, whose story you can probably guess from the title: a group of 5 barnyard animals form a punk band. Will their hits include “Baconkrieg Bop” and “Psycho Milker?” I hope not.

The CG film will be directed by David Silverman (The Simpsons Movie), with a script by Jim Hecht (Ice Age: The Meltdown) and David Stern. (Variety)

Those of you who fear that reboots have violently ravaged theaters like a pack of – oh, I don’t know, let’s just say “wolves” – may want to run and hide from the following news.

See The Trailer For Danny Boyle's Stage 'Frankenstein'

So, in 2010, Joe Johnston directed that toothless remake of The Wolf Man called The Wolfman starring Benicio Del Toro. Critics formed an angry mob, chasing it out of town, and an underwhelming box office performance was the silver bullet in the film’s chest. Or so we thought.

You see, the property is really important to Universal, who wants to launch a series of films based around their classic monsters, so they’re going to reboot the franchise and go in a different direction. They’re even considering calling the film Werewolf. So Werewolf would be a reboot of The Wolfman, which was a remake of The Wolf Man. And who says Hollywood is out of ideas?

Screenwriter Michael Tabb’s Wolfman 2 script is apparently being re-written as a standalone feature, which will lean closer creatively to the 1941 Lon Chaney version rather than the most recent take. (Moviehole)

Though the possibility has gotten more remote, Will Smith could be returning to the wild wild west as the lead in Quentin Tarantino‘s new spaghetti western Django Unchained. Meanwhile, Leonardo DiCaprio is now in actual talks to play the lead villain. Between Tarantino, Smith and DiCaprio, that’d be one heckuva posse.

Leo’s All-Time Greatest Spazzouts

DiCaprio might play Calvin Candie, the ruthless Candyland ranch owner, who pits male slaves against one another in battles to the death and offers up the female slaves for sexual abuse. Man, that guy could use a big dose of vitamin comeuppance. Freed slave Django must come to his captive wife’s rescue. Smith is on the top of Tarantino’s list for Django, though Jamie Foxx, Idris Elba and Chris Tucker (really?) are also possibilities. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson are also expected to join the cast in major roles.

Tarantino almost nabbed DiCaprio for Landa in Inglorious Basterds, as the actor was interested in the role early on. The talks didn’t pan out that time, but perhaps second time’s a charm? (Deadline)

Is there any force in the universe stronger than Turtle Power? Answer: obviously not.

Real Life Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Need proof? Despite my no longer being 8-years-old, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise continues on in new television shows and movies. You need some serious mutagen to pull that off. Paramount believes they have successfully revived one big, dormant franchise with Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. Now they’ve asked the writers behind MI:4, Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, to repair the Turtle Blimp and get TMNT off-and-running again. Timing-wise, I bet Paramount is partly looking to take advantage of fellow Viacom Club member Nickelodeon‘s upcoming series revival of those Ninja Mutant Turtle Teenagers, which should emerge from the sewers late next year.

No word yet on how they’ll approach the reboot. Hopefully, it’ll be with awesome, Jim Henson puppet head costumes again, but I’ve got a sinking feeling that Krang’s gonna zap them all into the CG / live action mix dimension, which is far more horrible than Dimension X. At least in Dimension X, they don’t have Smurfs. (Deadline)

Taking a cue from Marvel and Universal’s Hulk redo in 2008, after the disappointing 2003 Ang Lee version, Fox is trying again with Daredevil. Ben Affleck‘s less-than-beloved 2003 take on the blind lawyer superhero will not be the last. I’m sure the studio is feeling the super-power of franchise re-tinkering, after the successful open of X-Men: First Class, and they don’t want those movie rights leaping back to Marvelville.

Hop onto your lightcycles and get ready to lightride back to The Grid, lightomaniacs. Disney is moving forward with plans to make a Tron 3. They’ve hired writer David DiGilio (Eight Below) to process the sequel to the $400 million worldwide grossing Tron: Legacy. Hopefully this one will feature more talk about computer genocide, which I think would also make a great phrase on a t-shirt.

However, the sequel may not materialize after all. Disney execs are closely watching the ratings of “Tron: Uprising”, an animated series coming to Disney XD this fall. So if you’re a Tron Guy, you’d better TiVO the 1′s and 0′s out of that bitch. Otherwise, Sam Flynn will make a sad face emoticon at you.

DiGilio also sold a sci-fi show pitch to Showtime called “Last H.O.P.E..” The post-apocalyptic series is described as “Mad Max meets ‘M.A.S.H.’,” and the titular acronym stands for “Last Hospital On Planet Earth.” Not much to go on, but sounds like it could be fun. The emergency room, with people on fire and barbed-wire baseball bats stuck in their backs, would hopefully be worth the price of admission. (Hollywood Reporter)

Devil’s Due comic The Nye Incidents will be helmed for the big screen by director Todd Lincoln, who’ll also be tackling a Twitter-based zombie movie. #surewhynot The comic, written by Whitley Strieber (Communion) and Craig Spector, follows a medical examiner who doesn’t believe in aliens. No, not even ALFs, as hilarious as they are. However, when an alien abductee murder case comes across her desk, and she ends up chasing a serial killer who might not be human, her faith in the logical is shaken. Then she teams up with David Duchovny for a couple seasons, nerds will briefly worship her, and finally we won’t hear from her ever again.

Lincoln will produce alongside Daniel Alter (Hitman) for RKO. (Hollywood Reporter)

First there was The Hangover. Then there was “The Hangover for women,” aka Bridesmaids, which it totally wasn’t, but there you go. Now we have what sounds like a mixed-gender Hangover in the works. When are we gonna see what a hermaphrodite Hangover would look like? When?

7 photosReese Witherspoon

Sascha Rothchild sold a pitch to Dreamworks called Who Invited Her, about a woman who insists on being part of a dude’s bachelor party weekend. Reese Witherspoon will produce, and the project is being developed for her to star. This makes me worried that ladies are going to start “Witherspoon-ing” bachelor parties. From there, it’s only a matter of time before women invade male-only professions, like law enforcement and space travel. What? There are lady cops and astronauts now? Damn it, this movie is already ruining everything, and it hasn’t even been written yet.

Gary Foster (“The Soloist”) will produce alongside Witherspoon. (Variety)

I would like to say “hello” to Al Pacino‘s little friend, assuming that friend is now a double neck guitar.

Pacino is close to playing an aging rock star, which I think could be an amazing fit for the eccentric actor. I can see him getting a big kick out of smashing expensive musical instruments in a crazy rage. He’s currently circling the lead in Imagine, about an old rocker who uncovers a lost letter to him from John Lennon, prompting him to turn his life around. Man, I could use a lost letter from John Lennon right now. I had the worst day.

Imagine comes from the pen of screenwriter Dan Fogelman (Tangled), who’ll make his directing debut with this project. Fogelman is currently on fire, in the NBA Jam sense. He wrote July’s Crazy, Stupid, Love starring Steve Carell, who dropped out of Imagine due to scheduling conflicts. He also wrote the upcoming My Mother’s Curse starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen. (LA Times)

Hi, My Name Is- My Name Is- My Name Is- *Chicka Chicka* — Punch!

Watch A Trailer For 'Real Steel', The Boxing Robot Movie

Director Antoine Fuqua, who directed Training Day and… that’s the credit worth mentioning, is reportedly leaving the Tupac biopic project to helm a boxing movie for Dreamworks. A deal is currently being discussed between the director and the studio. Southpaw, written by Kurt SutterSons of Anarchy“), will star rapper Eminem as a boxer whose life sucks, even after winning a title. I guess the title doesn’t take away all those broken bones and ear bite marks that are par for the course.

Eminem is looking to return to feature films after the 2002 hit 8 Mile. However, a lot’s happened to the guy since then, and I’m sure he’s out of shape. The rapper will no doubt need to go through a training montage to get his movie acting-strength back to when he was a box office champ. If this all sounds like a boxing movie, then my attempt at making a parallel has been a complete success. *Confetti* (LA Times)

On British TV, you can say “f*ck,” but in British theaters, you can’t show a guy masturbating to his own human centipede. What’s up with that, Queen Elizabeth?

'Kidnapped' Might Be The Most Disturbing Film You See This Decade

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has banned The Human Centipede II: (Full Sequence), director Tom Six‘s follow-up to the instant cult classic about a man who stitches people together ass-to-mouth. Although the first one slid by with an 18 rating (Adults Only), this one is apparently unfit for loyal subjects of any age. BBFC took umbrage to the idea that the Centipede scientist would get a sexual kick out of his creation, a central element to the sequel. Maybe he should have romanced the Human Centipede a bit, to soften the impact on audiences? Took the Human Centipede out to dinner? Dancing? A marriage proposal?

IFC is releasing the movie in the US later this year. Spoilers After The Picture… (TheWrap)

Here’s exactly what the BBFC said about the film and their decision:

“The principal focus of ‘The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence)’ is the sexual arousal of the central character at both the idea and the spectacle of the total degradation, humiliation, mutilation, torture, and murder of his naked victims,” the BBFC wrote.

“Examples of this include a scene early in the film in which he masturbates whilst he watches a DVD of the original ‘Human Centipede’ film, with sandpaper wrapped around his penis, and a sequence later in the film in which he becomes aroused at the sight of the members of the ‘centipede’ being forced to defecate into one another’s mouths, culminating in sight of the man wrapping barbed wire around his penis and raping the woman at the rear of the ‘centipede.’

“There is little attempt to portray any of the victims in the film as anything other than objects to be brutalised, degraded and mutilated for the amusement and arousal of the central character, as well as for the pleasure of the audience. There is a strong focus throughout on the link between sexual arousal and sexual violence and a clear association between pain, perversity and sexual pleasure.”

Who Is Salt?

Angelina Goes 'MacGyver' in Latest 'Salt' Clip

That mysterious question is so Summer 2010. The new mystery question for Summer 2011 is…

Who asked for Salt 2?

The answer is the movie-going public, since the Angelina Jolie action spy thriller scored around $300 million worldwide at the box office, making a sequel as inevitable as Evelyn Salt stopping the nuclear missiles at the end. Sony has tapped Salt writer Kurt Wimmer for a draft, which he’s currently penning. Jolie is apparently interested in returning to the role, provided the project comes together in a way she’s happy with. So… a bigger paycheck?

Originally, Salt was written for Tom Cruise, but after discussions about the project, Cruise felt the character was too close to Ethan Hunt from the Mission: Impossible series. Jolie was interested in starring in her own James Bond type series, and that led to the Salt rewrite. The sequel is being written for Jolie, but maybe she’ll opt out and they’ll rewrite the part for Will Smith or something. (Deadline)

In a recent interview, Carrey let slip that he was considering two sequels to past films that they already made spin-off movies out of, but neither one involved Carrey. I guess he wants to go back and rewrite those great wrongs in cinema history.

“We’re talking about maybe returning to some old characters that everyone has been asking about,” on which Carrey elaborated, ”…There’s Bruce Almighty and we’re talking about maybe another Dumb and Dumber.”

What? He’s not doing another Majestic? Aw, man. Well, it’d be fun to catch up with Harold and Lloyd, and I’m guessing The Farrelly Brothers have been praying night and day for the dumberer stars of that potential hit to align. As for Bruce Almighty, the Steve Carell sequel Evan Almighty was a big budget disappointment. Are people really excited to return to the franchise? I’d just assume pack my memories of those movies on an arc and let them drift peacefully off into the ocean. (ComingSoon.net)

In an interview, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura recently described Shockwave as “a ball of destruction, pulling whole skyscrapers down. He’s a messy guy to have in our world.” I hear he also doesn’t use a spoon when he eats pasta, and sauce gets all over the city. Very messy. Also, he kills a lot of people.

Well, perhaps “regrets” is too strong a word, but in the spirit of this news, I won’t go back and change it.

5 photosPretty Pictures from Steven Spielberg's 'Terra Nova'

In a recent interview, Steven Spielberg discussed the currently-being-worked-on Blu-ray edition of Jaws. If your favorite Spielberg movie was the 2002 20th Anniversary Edition version of E.T. with the infamous replacement of guns for walkie-talkies – first of all, really? Second of all, you’re out of luck with Jaws.

The famous director has gone back on the idea of digitally altering past films, putting Spielberg at odds with his friend George “I Change My Old Movies All The Time, Just To Piss You Off” Lucas. Hear that? It’s the collective sigh of relief from moviephiles and people who don’t fix things when they’re not broken. Direct from The Spielberg’s mouth:

“[In the future] there’s going to be no more digital enhancements or digital additions to anything based on any film I direct. I’m not going to do any corrections digitally to even wires that show…At this point right now I think letting movies exist in the era, with all the flaws and all of the flourishes, is a wonderful way to mark time and mark history.”

Yeah, why remove wires? I go out of my way to watch “The Wire,” though I will admit that’s entirely not what he’s talking about. He continues…

“When people ask me which E.T. they should look at, I always tell them to look at the original 1982 E.T. If you notice, when we did put out E.T. we put out two E.T.s. We put out the digitally enhanced version with the additional scenes and for no extra money, in the same package, we put out the original ‘82 version. I always tell people to go back to the ’82 version.”

He’s attached to direct and produce the film, with Lin and Scott Stuber set to co-produce. Universal is looking for a writer to pen the screenplay. Though plot details are being kept under-wraps, the word is that it’s similar in tone to Heat and the Bourne movies. Here’s what Lin has to say:

“Taking a step back, as a viewer, the tone and the gritty approach to the sci-fi genr taken here is something that hasn’t been seen in a while.”

Patricia Arquette will star alongside Kacey Barnfield and Abraham Benrubi (“ER”) in director David Arquette‘s Glutton. The film is about a bedridden, 1200 pound man, which is awesome. I hope they adapted the story from that great episode of”The Simpsons” where Homer wears a muumuu. Y’know, they make a lot of “Simpsonsaction figures, I wonder– yup, they did.

Glutton is also being shot in 3D, by the way. Just thought I’d throw that out there.

Benrubi plays the morbidly obese lead, Barnfield will play his only friend, who is blind, and in a big stretch, Patricia Arquette will play Benrubi’s sister. It’s the role she’s been auditioning for her entire life. Except for the having to take care of a fat man part. The sister stuff, I assume she’s got down cold. (Variety)
