Robert Downey Jr. is a happily married man, but that’s not stopping him from brushing up on How to Talk to Girls. The project is an adaptation of Alec Greven’s book that revolves around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex. Sounds pretty normal, right?

Wednesday, November 17 by

This marks Leary’s first onscreen performance in a theatrical film since 2002′s The Secret Lives of Dentists. But no matter what happens, I’ll always remember him as renegade Edgar Friendly from the 1993 classic, Demolition Man.

Remake of ‘The Swarm’ Closes In
Wednesday, November 17 by

Patrons flocked to theaters for killer piranhas, so who’s to say they wouldn’t do the same for killer bees? Producers Roy Lee and Steven Schneider sure as hell aren’t going to say such a thing. The two are currently developing a remake of the 1978 disaster movie The Swarm, a bee B-movie, if you will, and even if you won’t.

But the real prize seems to be a deal with Warner Bros.

If you ask me, going back to the original script is a great idea. Hopefully it’s chalk-full of references to William Jennings Bryan and the gold standard, which is sure to bring the Ron Paul demographic out to the theaters.

Hopefully the third time’s a charm for director Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen. Actually, the first two times have already proven to be quite charming, as they consisted of Borat and Bruno. Even so, here’s hoping for a three-peat.

Darren Aronofsky would like you to see his new film, Black Swan, as a companion to his previous Oscar nominated The Wrestler. Maybe they’ll show as a double feature.
