Daniel Radcliffe Replacing Wand With Rifle for ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’
Wednesday, June 23 by

The new guy brought his own saddle.Remember All Quiet on the Western Front, that book you were supposed to read in high school English class but instead you waited for your teacher to screen the 1930, or 1979, movie? Yeah, they're remaking that and Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is set to star. Harry (Daniel) will play a young German soldier fighting in the trenches of France.This remake seems pointless considering the original already won the Oscar for Best Picture, the highest honor that can be bestowed on a film. But I guess with today's technology the filmmakers can really take those mustard gas scenes to the next level. Add some 3D and audiences would almost be able to feel their nervous systems shutting down. Right on, Innovation. Right on. (Variety)

‘Twilight Eclipse’ Fans Abandon Their Parents’ Basements To Camp Out For Premiere
Wednesday, June 23 by

Roughing it the same way our forefathers did.There has never been a more lucrative time to be a cat-sitter. With Twilight Eclipse set to play at the Los Angeles Film Festival one week before it opens nationwide on June 30th, eager fans have assembled en masse to get a glimpse of their favorite stars. In fact, if you stroll by there right now, you'll see a "tent city" built by the Twihards. Just like our early settlers. Though they're more likely to suffer from Pop Rox in their blankets than small pox.It's now being reported that 550 of the overzealous nut jobs will be rewarded for their stalking by being guaranteed spots on the red carpet at Eclipse's Thursday premiere. The lesson here is if you obsess over someone hard enough, you'll be granted close access to them. Now, who amongst you has Bieber Fever and an attraction to hunting knives? (DailyMail)

Jason Reitman Options ‘SNL’ Writer’s ‘Elliot Allagash’
Wednesday, June 23 by

Jason Reitman has optioned the movie rights to the book Elliot Allagash. The private school satire, written by "Saturday Night Live" writer Simon Rich, tells the tale of a boy named Seymour Herson who is picked on until Elliot Allagash decides to be his mentor. It's unclear if Reitman will direct or just produce. Rich is on-board to pen the adaptation.Allagash is described as a “teen who regularly gets drunk and enjoys villainy.” What teen doesn't enjoy getting drunk and commiting villianous acts? When I was a teen all I did was guzzle Red Dog and tie damsels to train tracks. In fact, our gang's initiation required us to chug a quart of vodka and fasten our enemies to logs on the conveyor belt at the local saw mill. Now the big thing is drive by shootings. No imagination!

Bruce Campbell’s Soup
Wednesday, June 23 by

In honor of Bruce Campbell's birthday, Sci Fi Wire designed some Bruce Campbell's soup labels. Make sure you read all the fine details. I'm a big fan of the second direction on the can of Cream of Darkness: agitate with boomstick.Check out the labels after the jump…

‘Knight and Day’ Actress Gal Gadot
Wednesday, June 23 by

Gal Gadot is someone to look out for in the coming years, as she has proven to spice up big budget action fare like Fast & Furious and this week's Knight and Day. Coming from the land of the Middle East, this fomer Miss Israel shows us why her country is land worth fighting over.A word from Gal: "It's fun playing the bad girl, since I'm always the good girl in real life."Actresses say that all time. If they're all such goody two-shoes then who's helping Lindsay Lohan rail lines off of toilet paper dispensers? Show some solidarity, Girls.More innocent pics of Gal after the jump.

Jim Carrey Replacing Ben Stiller for ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’?
Wednesday, June 23 by

Looks like Ben Stiller and Noah Baumbach are no longer interested in adapting the childrens' book Mr. Popper's Penguins and no doubt making it depressing, so Fox is looking to director Mark Waters (Mean Girls) and Jim Carrey to fill their spots. Goodbye hipster soundtrack, hello funny faces!The LA Times says nothing is confirmed at this point, and that Owen Wilson and Jack Black are also being considered. Sounds to me like someone at Fox is just shouting out names and hoping two of them are available, interested, and not dealing with personal sh*t at the moment. Zack Galifianakis! Martin Scorsese! Cobb salad! At this point, the studio exec takes his lunch from the mail room guy and shoves him out of the conference room. (SlashFilm)

‘Glee’ Producer Bans Sex On Set
Wednesday, June 23 by

Lord only knows where that finger has been.The soothsayers over at Hustler have done it again. Apparantly, the thought of the "Glee" cast rubbing their genitals together isn't a far-fetched scenario that exists only in parody porn and fan fiction. Ryan Murphy, the show's co-creator and producer, has been forced to ban sex in the kids' trailers. He creepily announced his decree to Telegraph UK:"But I have a rule: don't do it in your trailer. They've broken that rule on many occasions. I'm like, 'I know you guys are young and hormonal, but don't do it in your trailer'. I'm the dad, that's what I say'."This news makes me feel sad for the female castmembers. They must be so bored while all that sex is going on without them.

Neill Blomkamp Will Not Direct ‘The Hobbit’
Wednesday, June 23 by

Why doesn't anybody (good) want to direct The Hobbit? Peter Jackson passed. Guillermo del Toro quit. Now we have word the rumored shoe-in Neill Blomkamp won't be taking the gig either. Though in all fairness, he was never offered the job. From Vulture:An insider at his agency, William Morris Endeavor, confirms to Vulture that not only is Blomkamp not doing the movie, no one from MGM/United Artists or Warner Bros. has even contacted them about his directing the film.But they may have considered Brett Ratner. Makes total sense. If anything, MGM will always be remembered for their sound business decisions. Hopefully they won't be remembered as the studio that forced Sir Ian McKellan to wear a "Team Ratner" t-shirt.

Charlie Sheen Back to the Minors with a ‘Major League’ Sequel?
Wednesday, June 23 by

Will Charlie Sheen be back for another installment of Major League? He will if David S. Ward has his way. The writer/director behind the first three films has penned a sequel focusing on Sheen's character, Wild Thing. “Wild Thing comes out of retirement to work with this 19-year-old player. We’ve actually got three new characters in the new film. And if the new film is popular, they could carry the franchise on.” Since he's one of the highest paid actors on television, Sheen should have more money than God, or at least one of those out-of-work Greek gods. But considering his current legal troubles and the fact that he recently did a series of underwear ads, I think there's a good chance we'll be seeing Major League 4 in the not-to-distant future.

John Lithgow is a Damn Dirty Ape
Wednesday, June 23 by

They finally made a monkey out of ol' John Lithgow. Empire Online is reporting that the actor has been confirmed for the upcoming Planet of the Apes prequel, Rise of the Apes. The film costars James Franco and Frida Pinto.Despite the misleading headline and hackneyed primate references, Lithgow will not be playing an ape. Instead, he has landed the roll of the protagonist's Alzheimer's stricken father, which is a lot like playing an ape, since both apes and Alzheimer's patients have been known to throw feces. You think I'm making a crass joke, but I'm serious. I saw it first hand with my uncle Bobo.

Yep, They’re Making a Troll Dolls Movie
Tuesday, June 22 by

Thank you, Internet.Dreamworks Animation is determined to freak us all out, licensing the Happy Troll Doll character from Danish company Dam Things for the bigscreen. Brother and sister writing team (awwww, isn't that nice?) Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson LaBracio (but she got married, boooo!) have been hired to give structure and dialogue to the pig-faced, florescent-haired dolls.Originally created in 1959 by Danish woodcarver Thomas Dam as a gift for his daughter, the dolls sparked an international craze in the early 1960s, with nostalgic revivals introducing the figures to subsequent generations as well. The feature will expand on the troll dolls' mythology, while giving Dam a chance to relaunch the toy line for another set of young collectors.Someone from Dreamworks Animation must have seen the Trolls in the beginning of Toy Story 3 this weekend and immediately run to the nearest phone bank to call their boss. It's that kind of innovative thinking that leads to the promotions and luxury cars you use to fill the void when your family leaves you after growing tired of your constant absence from their lives.

New ‘Inception’ Trailer Blurs the Line Between Dreams and Reality
Tuesday, June 22 by

A new trailer for Inception has star-wiped its way online, and features a lot of new footage. We also get a look at each of the characters (including Marion Cotillard's mysterious Mal), and see a bit more about what the hell this movie is about. From this trailer it looks like Mission: Impossible set amongst the perceived reality created by stochastic neurons. Except there's no Ving Rhames. Which is dumb. Usually the only way I know that I'm dreaming is when Ving Rhames appears. But whatever, I trust Christopher Nolan. I'm just disappointed there doesn't seem to be a scene where Ellen Page dreams she showed up for work in the nude. Missed opportunity right there. VIEW THE TRAILER AND BEND YOUR MIND AFTER THE JUMP…

‘Zombieland’ Director Finds ‘Babe in the Woods’
Tuesday, June 22 by

Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is having the kind of year all film school graduates dream about and then usually never experience. He's already onto directing his next project 30 Minutes of Less with Danny McBride as a pizza deliveryman, and now he's signed on to helm Babe in the Woods.The Mike White-scripted comedy is about "a female freshman who arrives at Yale and is targeted by the New Jersey mob." See the title, it's a pun. In this case the "Babe" means "hot college ass," not "pig." The exact reason why the babe is targeted by the New Jersey mob is unknown, but if I had to guess, she probably witnesses the mob hit of a boy she befriends in the beginning of the first act. And if I get that right on the nose, Columbia Pictures owes me an Edible Arrangement. Chocolate-dipped pineapple, please. (Deadline)

Keith Allen Hayes Joins ‘The Walking Dead’
Tuesday, June 22 by

Mmmm…. close enough.Keith Allen Hayes is the latest to be cast in Frank Darabont's television adaptation of The Walking Dead in an unspecified role. It's speculated that he'll play Tyreese, the pro football player with a penchant for caving in zombie brains, who joins the survivors outside of Atlanta. Though I can see the resemblance, we're not even certain that the Tyreese character will be introduced in this first six-episode season, as he doesn't appear in the books until issue seven.I think it's far more likely that he'll play the role of Morgan Jones, the first (living) person Rick encounters after waking from his coma. But that's just me. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to run some errands before the neighborhood bullies get out of school. (Dread Central)

They Found Some Kid to Star in the ‘Footloose’ Remake
Tuesday, June 22 by

The cast for the Footloose remake has finally been set. Yaaaaay… Julianne Hough is already on board to play the girl, and Dennis Quaid is playing John Lithgow's role of Strict Preacher Father. But I'm guessing you want to know who's filling Kevin Bacon's fancy shoes?It's Kenny Wormwald! You probably remember him from the MTV series "Dancelife" and the film Center Stage: Turn it Up, the sequel to Center Stage. He  can dance, and the film's director, Craig Brewer (Hustle & Flow), must also think he can act. Why else would be turn down Zac Efron and Chase Crawford for an unknown? Oh and some kid named Miles Teller is playing the Chris Penn friend to Bacon role.Listen, all of this is moot unless Kenny Loggins comes out of hiding and records a new song for the soundtrack. Or Kanye just remixes the original "Footloose" pop sensation. Imagine what Strict Preacher Father would think if all the kids were listening to black people music. Getting crunk is forbidden in his little town.

‘Knight and Day’ Actress Maggie Grace
Tuesday, June 22 by

Maggie Grace shows off her blonde sexy curls and fit body wherever she goes, either as a kidnapped teenager in Taken or a tough heroine in "Lost." She can next be seen in Knight and Day, but blink and you'll miss her performance as Cameron Diaz's matrimonial-bound sister. She'll be coming to Dwyane Johnson's rescue in this fall's Faster, where her smoking hot legs will be put to good action use.A word from Maggie: "High heels can be sexy. But before you leave the house, make sure you can walk in them. I've made that mistake."Must…resist…every temptation…to make a joke…about how blondes…can't walk…and doing anything else…at the same time… Check out more of a very balanced Maggie after the jump.

‘Transformers 3′ Set Pics
Tuesday, June 22 by

Michael Bay is currently shooting Transformers 3 in Playa Vista, CA, and Just Jared managed to snag some pictures from the set. Let me set the scene so that you may fully understand the gravitas behind the stills. Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Tyrese Gibson are being chased by an evil Decepticon who tips over a building. Oh the subtext! The building is clearly a metaphor for the Decepticon's abusive father. I smell an Oscar. **Places lid on trashcan stuffed with a decomposing grouch**Check out the pics after the jump…

Kristen Bell Brakes For ‘Whales’
Tuesday, June 22 by

Kristen Bell is floating around the negotiations table of the upcoming romantic comedy, Whales. Directed by Ken Kwapis, it stars Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski as an activist and reporter who team up with the Russkies to free three whales trapped beneath ice in the Artic Ocean.Bell's character is an ambitious reporter "who thinks her greatest assets are her looks." I can't argue with her there. Those are some great looks, but I feel ya, honey. People think it's easy to report on Captain America casting and Hobbit rumors while maintaining these ruggedly handsome features. It's not. You all forget that there's a dude attached to these snarky rants and shoddily-Photoshopped images of Michael Bay. A handsome, handsome dude. **rubs face against mirror like a parakeet** (THR)

7 Memorable Reunion Movies
Tuesday, June 22 by

In Grown Ups, a group of childhood friends get back together as adults for a 4th of July weekend of misbehaver and fun. Most members of movie reunions are bound together by death, marriage, and the inevitable high school get-together. The films contain performances by then little or unknown actors and give us soundtracks of a generation. Like an old LP record played over and over again, the premises might wear thin over time but still get stuck in our heads. Here are your the top 7 cinematic reunions in honor of Return of Secaucus 7, the film that started it all for seminal reunion flicks.THE BIG CHILL

Adam McKay Is Playing With ‘The Boys’
Tuesday, June 22 by

Is the world ready to see John C. Reilly in spandex? The Other Guys director Adam McKay is reported to be in talks to direct an adaptation of the über-violent Garth Ennis comic, The Boys. The comic follows a secret CIA team that monitors and punishes hard partying, out-of-control superheroes.McKay is a strange pick for this dark and gruesome material, so I would expect him to add a comedic element that makes the film more family-friendly. Like Will Ferrell running around naked except for a Superman cape. He can study my neighbor's kid for the role. Seriously, though. Put some pants on that kid. He's six. (EW)

Strange Days Indeed: ‘Dr. Strange’ Headed to the Big Screen
Tuesday, June 22 by

Strange days indeed. Most peculiar, momma. It looks like Dr. Strange is headed to the big screen. Marvel Studios has announced plans for a full length film based on the character, and has hired Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to work on the screenplay.The pair were also behind the script for the upcoming Conan film. However, Dr. Strange should prove to be a much more interesting character to write about since, unlike Conan, he talks. (Latino Review)

This Shirtless ‘Conan’ Pic is Confusing On Multiple Levels
Tuesday, June 22 by

Put a shirt on! You're making me uncomfortable!The first official picture for the upcoming Conan movie has me confused on multiple levels.When I heard there was a shirtless Conan picture on the Internet, I assumed it was Conan O'Brien, so I got ready to laugh. But when I clicked the link and was confronted with the raw animal magnetism that is a shirtless Jason Momoa, something deep inside me was stirred. It was something I hadn't felt since high school gym class, specifically the time I was partnered up with all-state wrestler Tim Nelson for weightlifting. The muscles, the grunting, the squatting: it was all too much for me to bear and I passed out.After staring at the Conan picture for five-minutes straight, I felt the same confusing feelings welling up inside me, and once again I passed out. But this time, instead of waking up to find myself duct taped to a flagpole, I awoke in a hospital bed. Turns out I'm an epileptic, and glistening male biceps trigger my seizures.After the doctor explained, I couldn't help but laugh, at least until the pain set in. Unfortunately, I chewed off my tongue during the seizure.True Story. Thanks, Jason Momoa. You ruined my life. (Film School Rejects)

‘The Green Hornet’ Trailer Has Hollywood a Buzz (Sorry)
Tuesday, June 22 by

Sorry, I'm addicted to onamonapia and bad puns.The official trailer for The Green Hornet is out, which is more than I can say for a certain New England Patriots' quarterback (all your supermodel and hot-actress baby mommas don't fool me, Tomás).In the film, the protagonist, Britt Reid (Seth Rogan), is a millionaire playboy who is forced to give up his hard-partying ways in order to fight crime. If that sounds familiar, it's probably because it's the same plot as Iron Man, Batman and every other superhero movie you've ever seen. But in a twist reminiscent of my high school chemistry class, Reid lets his Asian friend Kato (Jay Chou) do all the hard work, and basically just goes along for the ride.It's not a stereotype if it really happened.Watch The Green Hornet take credit for Kato's hard work after the jump.

‘Harold & Kumar 3′ Set Pics, Patton Oswalt Making Threats
Monday, June 21 by

Harold & Kumar 3 began filming today in a mall in Michigan, and the cast and creators are tweeting about their adventures. John Cho, the Asian in the dynamic cannabis-loving duo had this to say: "In Michigan, @pattonoswalt in my vicinity, holding a sketch pad, duct tape, and a reel to reel audio recorder. Eeesh." Whoa, so Patton Oswalt is on set too?! Oswalt tweeted: "Maybe it's this Michigan air, but @JohnTheCho is looking huggable, chloroform-able, and bury-able."As much as I'd love Oswalt being there to star in the movie, I gather by his tweet that he's simply hanging around set to chloroform, rape, and murder John Cho. He didn't specifically say "rape" but chloroform isn't used for much else these days. And since Kal Penn didn't chime in on Twitter, he must already be under floorboards somewhere. Check out some pics from the set after the jump…
