Fox Freaks The Eff Out Over Lindelof’s ‘Alien’ Script

Wednesday, October 13 by

Damon Lindelof has handed in his new draft of the screenplay for Ridley Scott's Alien prequel and the execs at 20th Century Fox have responded: "A+++ will do business with again." It's said that the script is successful on both a creative and budgetary level, and we don't know much more beyond that.
What we do know is that the action takes place 35 years before Ridley Scott's original and follows a female Space Marine General. The studio and director have named Natalie Portman as their top-pick for the role, with Noomi Rapace selected as an alternate. Other names that have been mentioned are Gemma Arterton and Carey Mulligan (who just screams Marine general). And beyond that, nobody knows nothing. People run around and get eaten, I guess.

Bruce Willis On ‘Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis’

Wednesday, October 13 by

On this new episode of "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," Bruce Willis stops by to be questioned about his poor career choices and Ashton Kutcher. John McClane seems genuinely jaded by the celebrity lifestyle he's lived for so many years. It used to be all bitches and blow, and now he's just waiting around for the phone to ring. If Bruce Willis wasn't still extremely awesome I might tend to believe this. I have a feeling it's still bitches and maybe a little less blow considering it's no longer the 80s.

Kanye West Made A Movie Or Something

Wednesday, October 13 by

We don't get a lot of chances to write about Kanye West on this site. He hasn't appeared in any of the Fast and the Furious films, and it's been awhile since he had a meltdown on live television. But now he's stepping into the world of filmmaking. I think.
Posted below, we have the trailer for West's latest vanity project Runaway, a 40-minute short film he's been shopping around. He's worked with a lot of talented directors throughout his career, so why did he choose to direct this himself? Despite the obvious reason.
"I know some of my images, my ideas, were so amateur, no director would want to do this for me. So I had to do it myself. I'd rather it be my vision and my dream and be sub par, than for it to be someone else's vision and perfect."
The same quote can also be applied to Brett Ratner's work on X-Men 3.

Lionsgate Signs On for ‘Happytime Murders’

Wednesday, October 13 by

Say hello to my little friend!
Do you like Muppet movies? Do you like murder movies? Or perhaps you've always wanted to murder a Muppet? Well, in any case, it looks like you're in luck. Lionsgate has signed on to Happytime Murders, a murder-mystery featuring Muppets (or something very similar) created by the Jim Henson Company.
Happytime grounds us in a world where humans and puppets live side by side, albeit with the puppets as second-class citizens. The furry cast of once-popular kids’ show The Happytime Gang are being picked off one by one, and the only ones who can figure out who’s behind the deaths is a drunken, washed-up private eye puppet and his former LAPD partner, a human being.
That sounds a lot like Chinatown mixed with Who Framed Roger Rabbit. That is to say, it sounds like the greatest story in all of human history. Oh, and if you answered "yes" to wanting to kill a Muppet, rot it hell. I love those furry bastards more than my own family. (Empire Online)

Watch 17 Minutes of “Walking Dead” Goodness (Video)

Wednesday, October 13 by

If you're having a hard time waiting for the premiere of "The Walking Dead, we've got something that might hold you over. AMC has unveiled a 17-minute behind-the-scenes featurette chronicling the making of Frank Darabont's epic new Zombie series based on the Robert Kirkman comics.

My recommendation: starting tomorrow, watch one minute a day for the next 17 days. If my math is correct, that should get you to October 31st, the day on which the first episode will air. If my math is incorrect, I apologize. I went to public school. (First Showing)

Sam Rockwell Joins ‘The Sitter’ For Jonah Hill’s Cocaine

Tuesday, October 12 by

Sam Rockwell is in final negotiations to chase Jonah Hill all around town for his cocaine in The Sitter. David Gordon Green is directing the upcoming action-comedy about a babysitter who must evade drug dealers while taking care of three kids. It's like Adventures in Babysitting with more booger sugar and less Elisabeth Shue.
JB Smoove, better known as Leon from "Curb Your Enthusiam," is also on board to play Rockwell's drug dealing partner. The script by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka is supposed to be hilarious, and I can't imagine teaming Smoove and Rockwell together will hurt any of the scenes. The only element that might suffer is the logistics, as Jonah Hill has to run around a town all night. (ThePlaylist)

Darren Aronofsky Watch: One Step Closer To ‘Wolverine 2′

Tuesday, October 12 by

In further Awesome Directors Making Batsh*t Decisions news, Darren Aronofsky is one step closer to directing Wolverine 2, the sequel to a movie that starred Will.I.Am and featured a guy causing a tank to explode by punching it in the cannon.
There was some debate online whether he would choose the comic book movie, or go with Tales From The Gangster Squad late last week. He's reportedly passed on Gangster Squad, leaving his schedule wide-open for Wolvie. Though, no deal is in place and we've heard no official word from his reps, it's likely he'll parlay Black Swan's Oscar buzz into instructing Hugh Jackman to growl. Or he could choose to do a good movie. We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, Nikki Minaj should probably practice surfing on nuclear warheads. (Deadline)

Matt Damon And Jon Hamm Will Appear In Live Episode Of ’30 Rock’

Tuesday, October 12 by

"Just ignore him and hopefully he'll go away."
Looks like NBC is pulling out the big celebrity guest star guns for this week's live episode of "30 Rock." Jon Hamm and Matt Damon are confirmed to appear as the men after Liz Lemon's heart. Plot details are under wraps so we don't know whether or not Damon will pull a Duck Phillips and try to crap in Alec Baldwin's chair before picking a fight with Hamm. Tracy Morgan more than likely will though. That guy pretty much craps anywhere and everywhere. (EW)

Look at Daft Punk in ‘Tron Legacy’ and Listen to a Track

Tuesday, October 12 by

In this official pic from Tron Legacy, Daft Punk looks like Daft Punk, but cooler! Look at the blue. I want to go to there. This sneak peak at the French duo is the kickoff of what Disney is calling Tron Tuesdays, which will see the release of new materials for the film every Tuesday for the next ten weeks as the film’s release date approaches. I would be happy if they just released a new Daft Punk track from the film's score every week.
Oh, look what else we have. A new Daft Punk track from the film's score. The first 90 seconds of "The Game Has Changed" gets me so amped for the film that I want to cram a Cat 9 cable into the gapping hole at the base of my skull. I've always assumed that's the reason it's there anyway.

‘Detroit 1-8-7′ Actress Rochelle Aytes

Tuesday, October 12 by

Getting your career started with White Chicks could be the death of some actresses, but for Rochelle Aytes it was only the beginning. While last fall's canceled "The Forgotten" didn't make a splash, Rochelle has been able to get a recurring role on "Detroit 1-8-7" before that also gets the canceled notice.

‘Back To The Future’ Footage Of Eric Stoltz As Marty McFly Surfaces

Tuesday, October 12 by

Thanks to the Blu-Ray release of Back To The Future, long-rumored footage of Eric Stoltz as Marty McFly has finally surfaced. What are you doing in there, Eric Stoltz? You are not a Marty McFly. You are an Eric Stoltz.
A bit of background, Stoltz was originally hired for the lead role but then replaced by Michael J. Fox after five weeks of filming. Fans have talked about the existence of this footage, but few have seen it. It's bizarre yet awesome to see after all this time. Now that this is out of the way, can we get back to work on making Hover Boards real?

Donald Glover Has More Spider-man Plans; ‘Community’ Goes Into Space

Tuesday, October 12 by

Donald Glover did not succeed in his campaign to become the first black Spider-Man. Andrew Garfield will keep Spidey Caucasian, but Glover’s still getting some digs in. He opened the new season of “Community” dressed in Spider-Man pajamas. It was more for the Black Spidey movement than for Glover himself.

“It’s weird, I feel like a lot of people were connected to that more so than I was which was interesting,” Glover said in a conference call today. “It felt like the war veteran who had his leg shot off and then he got a new leg and walks up to the podium and people are teary eyed. And people are like, ‘He did it anyway.’ I’m like, it’s not that big a deal. This happened during the summer, let’s make a nod to it. It was fun to do it. Was the costume cool? It was pajamas. Pajamas that were tailored to me.”
