In 30 years, wearing 'Blueface' will be considered racist.
Good news for Avatar fans! You now have a reason to live for at least three-to-four more years (besides those yearly trips to Branson with your mother).
In an interview with the New York Post, director James Cameron said he's still in the "tons of notes" stage of his production of Avatar 2, and the sequel won't be completed until at least 2014. But it may be worth the wait, since the director plans on filming the third installment at the same time.
"Right now, the thinking is that [Parts] Two and Three are going to be done together," he said. "They'll be released separately, probably a year apart or maybe even two, but they'll be done in a bunch. I'm mapping out the story line right now, so there's a proper arc that plays out over two films but buttons nicely at the end of Two, so you don't get this horrible second-act/end-of-'The Matrix' feeling."
What a jerk! The only feeling I had at the end of The Matrix Reloaded was one of pure euphoria. Granted, I watched the film on a return flight from Mexico, and a condom full of "Blanco" had ruptured in my large intestine, but still. Cameron should keep his opinions to himself. (Cinema Blend)
Doug Liman is officially on board to direct All You Need Is Kill, Empire Online is reporting. Based on the 2004 sci-fi novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka, the film will follow the story of a soldier who is killed while fighting aliens, but finds himself caught in a time loop, reliving the events leading up to his death over and over again. With each subsequent death, the character improves his skills while attempting to break the cycle.
This really makes me mad. Warner Bros. acted like I was nuts when I pitched them my idea for a mash-up of Starship Troopers and Groundhog Day. They kept telling me things like "you're not authorized to be in here" and "put your pants back on." Well, we'll see who's crazy when they get a call from my lawyer, Robert Kardashian.
I prefer this version. It's less talky and John Williams's score on piano sounds quite foreboding.

Good news for people who like breasts and carnivorous fish! A sequel for Piranha 3D is officially in the works.
Despite a slower than expected start at the box office, the film did fairly well when considering its budget was only $30 million. Couple that with an overwhelmingly positive critical reception, and it's easy to see why the Weinsteins and Co. signed off another installment.
Since the fourth dimension is time, I'm assuming Piranha 4D will involve the piranhas taking control of some sort of water-based time machine and traveling back to the Old West. Unless, of course, they end up naming it Piranha 3D Part 2, which would just be stupid. (Cinema Blend)
Public Transit is a b*tch.
After letting Tower Heist sit on the shelf for almost four years, Universal has given it the green light with Ben Stiller starring, Brett Ratner directing, and Imagine's Brian Grazer producing. Because if anyone can make a project work that hasn't been working, it's the mastermind behind X-Men 3. Deadline has the deets:
Ben Stiller stars as the overworked manager of a luxury building who, along with other staff, lost their pensions to a Bernie Madoff-like Wall Street crook. It so happens that the fraudster is being held under house arrest in the luxury penthouse apartment upstairs, and the manager and four cohorts figure a heist will make them whole.
Bumbling, inept idiots try to pull off a major heist. Have we not seen this concept countless times already? And not that I have anything against Stiller, but I don't understand why he'd want to play this type of character again. He's already been a bumbling security guard twice in the Night at the Museum movies, and a bumbling (insert occupation) in almost everything else. Now he's relying on Ratner to save a stale concept. Unless that concept is a cupcake, I'm not seeing him succeeding.
For those of you who think the Bangladeshi Incredible Hulk was the last word in foreign made Hulk knock-offs, prepare to have your pathetic world shattered. Behold, the Indian version of The Hulk (a.k.a. Athisayan), from director Vinayan T. Rajendarum.
The clip below depicts a ten-year-old boy with Hulk-like superpowers who goes on a murderous rampage. He then commits suicide by walking into the ocean while his family looks on in horror. Pretty dark stuff for a film that bills itself as a family comedy. But in all fairness, it's still funnier than The Back-Up Plan and When in Rome combined.
Watch the Indian Hulk lay the smack down after the jump…
Gianna Michaels, like many hard working adult film stars, came from the fast food industry before being discovered for her natural talents. They have led her to several adult industry awards and a small part in Piranha 3D, where she is eaten by the carnivorous fish while parasailing nude, of course.
A word from Gianna: "I worked at a hamburger joint up in Seattle called Dick's."
I won't comment on the irony.

Tom Hanks is considered one of the "nicest" guys in Hollywood. Sandra Bullock has the same "nice guy" image, but with a vaginal twist. Now comes word the pair may star in Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, thereby creating an overwhelming pile of nice-ness unlike anything the world has ever seen.
As if that wasn't nice enough, Eric Roth is adapting the script, which tells the story of a young boy who lost his father on September 11th. Terrorist attacks aren't very nice, but considering Roth also adapted the screenplay for a little movie called Forrest Gump, this film will probably be oozing with so much niceness that I'll have to punch my grandma in the face just to even things out.
I love you, Nana. (First Showing)
USAToday has a first look at Ron Howard's new film, The Dilemma. It stars Vince Vaughn as a guy who discovers that his best friend's (Kevin James) wife (Winona Ryder) is cheating on him with Channing Tatum. Not the real Channing Tatum, but the character he plays. In case you're confused as to where this movie came from, it used to be called Cheaters.
It's great to see Ron Howard taking on a comedy again. I've grown weary of his religious projects with Tom Hanks in long, stringy hair. Hopefully The Dilemma will be more Parenthood than EdTV. I'd also like to mention that the above scene takes place at Chicago's famous hot dog joint, Weiner Circle. A more dangerous place to bring Vaughn and James I cannot think of.
A captain never gets a minute to himself.
Someone named BigSugar imagined what it would be like if a development exec asked them to write a movie based on Slinky, the big metal coil for kids. The truly frightening part is with all the board game and Magic 8 Ball movies in development, this meeting is probably scheduled for a writer for Monday. (JohnAugust)

Adam Scott is so certain that you'll like his new film Piranha 3D that if you don't, he'll personally come over to your house and act out his scenes for you and yours friends. At least, that's what he tweeted yesterday. Today, he laid out the stipulations for Vanity Fair, which I'm betting most of you would willingly abide by for his visit:
“Few things: Will need the aforementioned firearm and fish. Will also need local Elisabeth Shue look-alike to run dialogue with, a plaid shirt, two high-fives (one before we run the scenes, one after), peanut M&M’s, a map with the closest Red Roof Inn circled on it (I won’t be staying there, I just like knowing where it is. I’ll be staying with you), a 700-word essay on why you neglected to recognize that Piranha 3D totally f**king shreds, Perrier, a quick guitar lesson, one grenade, dinner with your family, and directions to the airport.”
The only request I have a problem with is the 700-word essay. If there's one thing I can't stand in this world, it's mandated writing. When I put fingertips to keyboard it's on my own terms, Scott. (Movieline)
Bosnia Rambo possesses the artillery, brawn, and balls to take down whatever enemy may cross his path. The only problem is he's not shooting his bullets and arrows at anyone. It's just Bosnia Rambo, firing off into nothingness and crouching down low so a snake can slither its way across his rifle. Sure, snakes can make anyone look bad-ass, but present enemies really hit home that fact. If the director would just cut in some shots of some other dude firing back this video would be exxxtreeeeeeme!
Check out Bosnia Rambo in action after the jump…
Tim Burton will reunite with Ed Wood screenwriters Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski to bring dark humor and spiral staircases to the 3D stop motion animated The Addams Family. The new adaptation will be more faithful to the original Charles Addams drawings in The New Yorker, and less faithful to Christopher Llyod. The writers want "the tone to be as darkly funny and subversive as the Addams drawings, and we've come up with an approach that nobody has ever done before."
This pairing gets a huge thumbs up on my end. Ed Wood might be my favorite Tim Burton movie ever, and Alexander and Karaszewski also wrote The People vs. Larry Flynt, another fantastic biopic. The Addams Family seems to be more in Burton's wheelhouse than in the writers's, but perhaps they can rein Burton in when he decides that EVERYTHING needs to look like a bad LSD trip. (Deadline)

Riley Steele, a current popular star in the porn biz, makes her official big screen debut with Piranha 3D. From nude underwater swimming with Kelly Brook and making out with Jessica Szohr, the movie puts her adult entertainment assets to good use.
A word from Riley: "What matters most is how you see yourself."
Naked or clothed? Because there's a world of difference.

David Slade, director of Twilight Eclipse, 30 Days of Night, and Hard Candy, is the lead contender to helm the sequel to the X-Men Wolverine spin-off, the aptly titled, Wolverine 2. His sole competition is Robert Schwentke, who last directed The Time Traveler's Wife, and has the upcoming Bruce Willis vehicle, Red. Hugh Jackman himself will pick the winner, so let the ass-kissing begin. According to Vulture, "A well-placed source inside the production insists: 'It's going to be Slade.'" Looks like someone already sent a fruit bouquet to someone else's house.
I suppose I'd prefer Slade to Schwentke since I'm a big fan of Hard Candy and he made the least sh*ttiest Twilight movie, but I feel strongly that the sequel to Wolverine couldn't be any worse than the original no matter who's directing.
Oh no. I've gone and done it again. I've said the words that release the evil genie who travels on a bed of Cheetos dust.
Paramount has forked over one million bones to Art Marcum and Matt Holloway to reimagine a new live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. The studio wants this to be their next massive franchise, like Transformers, and to get the ball rolling ASAP. Considering it's been in development since last year, they're off to a slow start. Paramount's itching for a first draft by October so they can get it out to directors for a 2012 release. Never mind taking precious time to develop the story and characters. There's money to be reaped!
Writers Marcum and Holloway wrote the first Iron Man and just finished the Highlander reboot. They seem like the perfect pair for a reimaging of films that are very near and dear to my heart. Except for the stupid third one where the TMNTs go to Japan. Who dare debate me on The Ooze being the best film in the 90s live action trilogy? Draw your sais in the comments section. Also check out Michelangelo giving SJ a shout-out after the jump. (Deadline)
The development of a film entitled MILF may seem slightly overdue, but perhaps like a MILF itself, it's best to wait until it's ripe for the picking. Carla Gugino is in talks to star in MILF, only the acronym stands for "Mothers I'd Like to Fight" instead of the meaning you know and love and use on a daily basis.
Gugino would play a woman recently released from prison, hellbent on revenge, who "returns to the street to take care of some unfinished business." It's basically the same idea as Faster, which she is starring in with Dwayne Johnson, except this time she'll do the revenging instead of the chasing of the revenger. From her work in Watchmen, Sin City, and the upcoming Sucker Punch, it's evident that Gugino can handle herself and a gun if necessary. Fingers crossed we can hope for some fighting as well as the other kind of F in MILF. Friendship. (Collider)

I hope you're all well-rested because the casting search for Spider-man's girlfriend has finally kicked off. We're going to track this thing over the next few months until director Marc Webb and Sony cut through all the bullsh*t and send out an official press release. Oh you better believe there are going to be rumors galore that we'll report on until you beg for mercy. But even then we won't quit because this is Spider-man damnit! You NEED to know every. Single. Little. Detail about every decision made and every actress cast aside. So let's get the hell on with it then. I'M PUMPED!
The first batch of frontrunners to possibly share an on-screen kiss with Spider-man are Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Emma Roberts, Ophelia Lovibond, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Lily Collins. Haven't heard of half of them? Yeah, well you hadn't heard of Andrew Garfield either but he's Spider-man now, isn't he? My vote is for Lily Collins simply because she's the spawn of Phil Collins. Maybe she can get her dad to write an original song for the film. Eeeeeeeeeee!!! (Vulture)
She's ready for her close-up.
Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy have signed on for Hysteria, a comedy that focuses upon the invention of the vibrator and its effect on society in Victorian England. Jonathan Pryce and Rupert Everett are attached to co-star (OF COURSE). In the film, Dancy plays a doctor who uses a radical, new electronic device to toss off women who suffer from "hysteria," a malady whose symptoms include irritiability, anger, and unexplained tears. Weird, you can cure all those problems with a simple belt. That's how Dad did it. (Variety)
Paramount has finally set a release date for Case 39. After sitting on the shelf for close to three years, the Renee Zellweger horror flick will see the light of day on October 1st. And probably DVD on October 11th. B-ZING!!!
In the film, Zellweger saves a little girl from an abusive home, only to find out that evil follows the kid everywhere. People start dying all around them, and it turns into a fight for survival. That's pretty admirable. I'd be all like, "Sucks to be you. Good luck with that whole being haunted thing."
Seriously though, check out the trailer after the jump. It's spooky.
Director: Christian Alvart
Cast: Renee Zellweger, Jodelle Ferland, Ian McShane, Bradley Cooper
Synopsis: A social worker (Zellweger) fights to save a girl from her abusive parents, only to discover that the situation is more dangerous than she ever expected.
Release Date: October 1st, 2010
If by now you don't know what Chatroulette is than you probably think you're reading this on a toaster. Chatroulette offers people the opportunity to randomly video chat with one another, troll for hot chicks, or in more encounters than not, watch a dude masturbate. Some companies even set up fake feeds to advertise their products and websites. This is the exact approach Lionsgate took advantage of for this brilliant viral video for The Last Exorcism. Watch as dudes land on a hot chick hoping to get a flash of the goods, but instead get freaked the f*ck out. Kudos, marketing execs. Kudos.

Jessica Szohr hails from "Gossip Girl." She shows off her talents there alongside Blake Lively, and in the upcoming Piranha 3D. While not the best material for an up-and-comer, they do highlight her well-mixed beauty and overdone appeal of consumerism gone mad.
A word from Jessica: "When I have a craving for something, I just can't hold myself back."
So you should be very understanding of the fish in the film you're currently starring in.
