Carl Erik Rinsch to Tag Along with ‘Logan’s Run’

Wednesday, May 26 by

In this dystopian future society Cirque de Soleil is ALWAYS in town!Commercial director Carl Erik Rinsch, protege of Ridley Scott and all around badass visual artist, is stretching his legs for helming duties on Logan's Run for WB/Joel Silver. Rinsch was originally attached to the Alien prequel until Papa Ridley Bear decided to direct himself. In the meantime, he made an awesome short entitled The Gift for Philips that showcases his skillz, and basically proclaims, "Yeah, you should probably give me a sci-fi feature."Rinsch is currently in production on 47 Ronin, a movie where Keanu Reeves gets to pretend to be a samurai like Tom Cruise did, and he intends to move right to Logan's Run after. The plot of the 1976 film and 1967 novel involved a dystopian future society that controlled the population by killing everyone at age 30 (21 in the book). Those who try to escape their destiny are known as a “Runners”, and are hunted down by operatives known as Sandmen. The main character of the story is a Sandman named Logan who says hell no to losing the best years of his life and bolts. Being executed once you get to legal drinking age? Way to harsh a mellow, Government. (/Film)

50 Cent Will Get Thin Or Die Tryin’

Wednesday, May 26 by

The skeleton monster you see in the picture above is the fragile whisp that used to be 50 Cent. The rapper has dropped fitty pounds to play a cancer-stricken football player in the upcoming Things Fall Apart. The film, directed by Mario Van Peebles and written by 50 Cent tells the stor– what? I wouldn't drop $12 let alone a quarter of my body weight for a Mario Van Peebles / 50 Cent collabo.50 Cent lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie 'Things Fall Apart.' In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks.That's weird. Russell Crowe's liquid diet didn't help him lose any weight. Then again, that liquid was cake batter. (This Is 50)

Friars Club to Roast Quentin Tarantino

Wednesday, May 26 by

How could you be mean to this punim?They've done it to Pam Anderson, they've done it to William Shatner, and now the time has come for Quentin Tarantino to endure their wrath. On October 1 at the New York Hilton, The Friars Club will exploit Tarantino's shortcomings and almost certainly mention the words "Badrock; Bazooka; Benzoylethylecgonine; Benzoylmethylecgonine; Bernice; Bernies; Beta-Cocain; Blast; Blizzard; Blow; Bouncing Powder; Bump; Burese; C" Carrie; Cabello; Candy; Carrie; Caviar; Cecil; Charlie; Chicken Scratch; Cholly; COC; Coca; Cocain; Cocaina; Cocaine Free Base; Cocaine, L-; Cocaine-M; Cocktail; Coke; Cola; Corine; D-pseudococaine; Dama Blanca; Delcaine; Depsococaine; Dextrocaine; Dust; Ecgonine, Methyl Ester, Benzoate; Eritroxilina; Erytroxylin; Flake; Flex; Florida Snow; Foo Foo; Freeze; G-Rock; Girl; Gold Dust; Goofball; Green Gold; Happy Dust; Happy Powder; Happy Trails; Heaven; Hell; Isocaine; Isococain; Isococaine; Jam; Kibbles N' Bits; Kokain; Kokan; Kokayeen; L-Cocain; L-Cocaine; Lady; Leaf; Line; Methyl Benzoylecgonine; Moonrocks; Neurocaine; None; Nose Candy; Pimp's Drug; Prime Time; Rock; Sleighride; Snort; Snow; Star Dust; Star-Spangled Powder; Sugar; Sweet Stuff; Toke; Toot; Trails; White Girl or Lady; Yeyo; Zip" during a good ol' fashioned roast. Comedy Central has aired the specials in the past, but hasn't yet signed on for Tarantino's jittery jamboree of insults.

Yep. Victoria’s Secret Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley Will Replace Megan Fox’s Glistening Torso in ‘Transformers 3.’

Wednesday, May 26 by

This is what happens when you complain.Last week we pondered whether Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the Victoria's Secret model with zero acting credibility, would be selected to fill the Megan Fox-shaped hole in all of our Transformers 3 hearts. Today we have the answer: duh.Pending negotiations, Rosie will fill the role of semi-nude girl tinkering with a motor, and star opposite Shia LaBeouf, Josh Duhamel, and Tyrese Gibson. If she opts in, Rosie will be having her leg humped by either a miniature Decepticon or Shia LaBeouf within the next few weeks. (Deadline)

Christian Bale vs. Bear vs. Friends in ‘The Revenant’

Wednesday, May 26 by

John Hillcoat (The Road, The Proposition) is attached to direct The Revenant with Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, How to Berate a Cinematographer) in talks to star. Bale's character would be a 19th century frontiersman who is left to die by his friends after being mauled by a bear, and eventually sets out to take his revenge on them. Um, is it just me, or shouldn't he be taking his revenge out on the bear and its family? Sorry your friends didn't fight off a bear for you, dude. Chances are they quickly assessed the situation and came to the the conclusion that IT'S A BEAR. Now you're going to make them pay for using their God-given natural instincts? Whatever, this concept had me at "mauled by bear." (BloodyDisgusting)

15 Most Awkward Michael Scott Moments

Wednesday, May 26 by

One of the reasons "The Office" has remained so eminently watchable over the years is Steve Carell as the clueless Dunder-Mifflin boss Michael Scott. The actor, combined with a great script, just has a talent for wringing the most extremely painful awkwardness out of basically any situation. Making a list of the most awkward moments is like picking the most apple-y of apples. Awkwardness and Michael just go hand-in-hand – every single episode contains something that makes you cringe while laughing at how uncomfortable he can make people, but there are those memorable moments that stand out even amongst 115 episodes. And knowing that we only have one more season of Michael's hi-jinks to look forward to, it seems appropriate at the end of this past season to take a look back at all the most excruciatingly embarrassing ways the actor has made us laugh.

Julie Benz Returns For ‘Dexter’ Season Five

Wednesday, May 26 by

Welcome back.**SPOLER ALERT: DON'T READ FURTHER UNTIL YOU'VE WATCHED THE FOURTH SEASON OF 'DEXTER'**Turns out that Julie Benz will return for the new season of "Dexter." Aussiello got the scoop that Benz will reprise her role in the season premiere despite the fact that Rita's blood is now on the outside of her. Though everyone's being tight-lipped about how she will return.As she told us a few months back, Sara Colleton reaffirmed that Rita won't be brought back as a ghost a la Dexter's father, “We reserve those for Harry. If you have too many things like that it becomes gimmicky.”I hear what she's saying. It's like when "RoboCop: The Series" introduced that hologram-ghost as a recurring character. Totally pulled me out of the tightly-woven narrative.

Douchebag Manifesto “The Game” Gets Rom-Com Treatment

Wednesday, May 26 by

He's got it all figured out.Neil Strauss's "The Game: Penetrating The Secret Society Of Pick Up Artists" is undergoing the romantic comedy treatment. If you've ever seen VH1's "The Pick-Up Artist," you know what the book entails. Men wear distracting crap and self-applied nicknames in an attempt to lure strippers to bed with the aid of parlor tricks. Ari Sandel will direct with Made Of Honor's Adam Sztykiel (good bless me) handling the rewrite.Casting hasn't begun yet but I think we all know which direction this thing is headed. Quickly, somebody put Russell Brand in a fuzzy top hat. He's already wearing one? Alright, then. We're halfway there. (Variety)

Weinsteins’ Miramax Deal Falls Apart

Wednesday, May 26 by

Bob and Harvey Weinstein relax after attending Sunday morning mass.A $600 million deal between Disney and the Weinstein brothers has fallen through, leaving the fate of Miramax up in the air. While an agreement between the two parties was once considered inevitable, The Wrap reports that "legal minutiae and details of the library split caused the talks to drag on and ultimately fizzle."Bob and Harvey Weinstein founded Miramax in 1979, but sold it to Disney in 1993. Now that the deal has fallen through, insiders speculate that the brothers have grown tired of the Hollywood racket and are leaving show business to pursue a simpler life. Rumors are swirling that the pair have set their sites on acquiring Bagel Nosh, a New York style breakfast spot and deli in Santa Monica, CA. Lox of luck, boys! (First Showing)

Eli Roth’s ‘The Last Exorcism’ Trailer

Wednesday, May 26 by

A lady in the street, but a freak in the bed. A trailer for The Last Exorcism has hit the interwebs, and we couldn't help but notice that the Eli Roth production looks a lot like the first Exorcist. Just like the original, the film follows a young girl possessed by the devil who is walking on the ceiling, contorting her body in horrifying ways and acting like an all-around *sshole. But don't worry. Rumor has it that the film has at least one modern twist. Instead of vomiting split pea soup, the victim upchucks Healthy Choice Hearty Vegetable Barley, a low-calorie alternative for today's health-conscious horror fan. Watch The Last Exorcism trailer below.

‘Morning Glory’ Trailer with Harrison Ford Doesn’t Totally Suck Thanks to JJ Abrams

Wednesday, May 26 by

JJ Abrams gives Ford and McAdams a sneak peek at the "Lost" finale. Finally, a movie staring Harrison Ford that you're supposed to laugh at (besides Six Days Seven Nights and Hollywood Homicide, which you were supposed to laugh at, but didn't). Morning Glory, produced by golden boy JJ Abrams and co-staring Rachel McAdams, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, and Jeff Goldblum, seems like it might have some legitimate humor. The movie tells the story of a “hotshot television producer is set the challenge of reviving a struggling morning show program, despite the constant feuding of its high-profile anchors.” It comes across as part Network, part "Today Now", and part steaming pile of sh*t. That last part is probably due to the fact that the film shares a screenwriter with The Devil Wears Prada and a director with Notting Hill. Even so, the trailer looks pretty good until the 2:00 mark, when Ford gets emotional and that Natasha Bedingfield song kicks in (I looked her up). See the trailer for yourself after the jump.
