Paramount Pays Sacha Baron Cohen With Goats

Friday, April 23 by

Paramount has won the rights to Sacha Baron Cohen's next comedy film after sending goats to the actor and his reps. That's right. Goats. They also gave him $20 million against 20% of the first-dollar gross. Which means he could stand to earn.. umm…. uh…. carry the one…consult with Clippy…. uh…. a lot of money. So that helped to seal the deal too.The film will star Cohen in a dual role, playing two characters we've yet to see. One is a goat herder and the other a deposed dictator who gets stuck in America. But back to the goats. Deadline reports, "visitors to WME were greeted by a goat wandering across the 3rd floor atrium — that is, until Ari Emanuel had the goat removed after it took a dump in the hallway."No fair. Brett Ratner dumps in that hallway all the time and he's still allowed to make deals.

Requisite ‘Twilight: Eclipse’ Trailer Post

Friday, April 23 by

Peek-a-boo. Today Oprah continued her mission to infuriate the male gender by debuting the new trailer for Twilight: Eclipse. I don't believe the act was intentionally malicious, but when an "Oprah" audience squeels a lumberjack loses his testicles. I've watched the trailer and if I'm not mistaken it's still about vampires and cartoon werewolves. Everyone is sad most of the time, donning pomadours, and fighting each other for ownership of the woods or something. The film does feature a group of vampires emerging from a body of water, which I always thought was a zombie strategy of attack. Better get on your game, Walking Dead. The vampires are stealin' your bitches AND your tricks. Swoon over the trailer after the jump.  Twilight: Eclipse gets asses in the seats June 30.

‘Eastbound and Down’ Heads Down Mexico Way

Friday, April 23 by

The wait is almost over. The second season of "Eastbound and Down" will officially send K F*CKING P south of the border to Mexico, where the drugs are more dangerous and nobody works past noon. Michael Pena and Ana de la Reguera join the cast while most of season one's cast sit this one out. Everyone except for Kenny's stalker Stevie Janowski, thankfully. In Season 2, hiding from his problems, Kenny finds himself in Mexico where he joins a local baseball team. Crash co-star Pena will play Kenny’s friend and owner of the baseball team he joins. De la Reguera will play Kenny’s love interest in Mexico. Because of the new setting, most of the cast members from Season 1 of the show will have little or no presence next season with the exception of Steve Little whose character Stevie Janowski will track Danny down in Mexico. Casting is underway for the role of Kenny's father.Filming begins in May, but that's just not soon enough for me. I'll scrape a chalk dash for everyday that passes without a new episode on the side of my television. Like they do in the fancier prisons. (Deadline)

‘Miami Medical’ Actress Elisabeth Harnois

Friday, April 23 by

Elisabeth Harnois is another one of those child actors who grew up to be hot. She starred in "Point Pleasant," a short-lived 2005 series on FOX, and also landed a role in Pretty Persuasion alongside Evan Rachel Wood.A word from Elisabeth: "I wish I understood the UK audience."I can't understand them either with all their "whilsts" and "spots of tea."More examples of Elisabeth's maturity after the jump.

Breck Eisner to Direct ‘Escape from New York’

Friday, April 23 by

Those who have always wished they could see Snake Plissken run around with the burnt-out facades of ruined Starbucks locations behind him have cause to celebrate. It's been announced that Breck Eisner is in talks to pull the let's-get-out-of-this-joint action-thriller Escape from New York, out of development hell.Breck Eisner, who directed Overtures' remake of "The Crazies," is in negotiations to helm the remake of "Escape From New York" for New Line.The remake has been a top priority for the company, which picked up the rights in March 2007, with Gerard Butler attached to star and Ken Nolan writing the script. The project then veered into development hell, losing Butler but amassing a penal colony of writers, among them Jonathan Mostow and Allan Loeb, and collecting then losing director Len Wiseman.Eisner's boarding should bring "Escape" back on track as New Line, sticking with the Loeb draft, tries to mix an origin story for anti-hero Snake Plissken and merge it with the story of the 1981 original. No word yet on when the Rock will resign himself to star with a brooding sigh. "Yeah, sure. Pass me that eye-patch."  But expect that news soon. (THR)

Iron Man Sails On The Titanic

Friday, April 23 by

First Iron Man punched Hugh Grant in the face, then danced dirty with Patrick Swayze, and now he's getting all artsy fartsy with Leonardo DiCaprio. The suits over at Paramount must be ecstatic that these mashups are making the rounds. Not that the release of Iron Man 2 needs much more hype, but it's an exec's wet dream to get a superhero franchise and James Cameron together by any means possible.

8 Bands Worthy of a 3D Concert Film

Friday, April 23 by

With the recent Hollywood push to produce and convert everything they possibly can into 3D, you gotta wonder if the major congloms are gonna work with their music departments to throw out a few more 3D gigs. To date, there have only been three such concert shows in theaters, with Hannah Montana being the only big success. Country singer Kenny Chesney releases his show to the masses this Friday, so we'll see how a cowboy fares. Fact is, “The Studio Man” has apparently forgotten that their largest and most loyal audience members are young adult males. Why can’t we score a show or two from a band that actually rocks hard (sorry U2 fans, they just don’t)? The following are eight bands/performers that, if given their own 3D theatrical film, would inspire some airborne devil-horns and bring in bank at the box office. Muse

Ridley Scott Spills ‘Alien’ Prequel Beans

Friday, April 23 by

Who is this giant, fossilized guy?Despite having had its soup pissed in time and time again, Ridley Scott has agreed to return to the Alien franchise. He gave some details about the "fresh" ideas we can expect to see in his prequel.“It’s set in 2085, about 30 years before Sigourney [Weaver's character Ellen Ripley]. It’s fundamentally about going out to find out ‘Who the hell was that Space Jockey?’ The guy who was sitting in the chair in the alien vehicle — there was a giant fellow sitting in a seat on what looked to be either a piece of technology or an astronomer’s chair. … We're hoping to have it in theaters in late 2011, or maybe the best date in 2012." Sounds as if they're taking a cue from The Thing prequel, and reverse-engineering a movie out of the crime scene found early in the first. Scott himself is aware of how badly the franchise sucks nowadays, citing AvP as "a pity" and wondering aloud how many Alien films there have been. There have been six, Ridley. And two Gladiator films. (MTV)

‘World War Z’ Development Lumbers Forward

Thursday, April 22 by

PEW. PEW. PEW.It's been a long time since we've heard anything about the adaptation of World War Z. Max Brooks, the book's author, spoke with MTV and gave the update that we're about a month away from seeing a rewrite from Matthew Carnahan. After that point, it's up to Paramount to decide when and how awesomely it gets made.He also acknowledged that the style of the book is impossible to translate to film and commended the original script's ability to weave a cohesive narrative from the numerous, sprawling entries in the book. Until we hear more, readers are advised to prepare for the impending zombie uprising. A nice way to do so would be with this combination night table/zombie-proof bat and shield. Also effective against cat burglars.

James Cameron Plants a Tree (Buries a Body?) For Earth Day

Thursday, April 22 by

What does it take for Hollywood to start giving back? About $2.7 billion. By the time Avatar arrived on DVD and Blu Ray, 20th Century Fox took a special Earth Day initiative. James Cameron himself got his hands dirty to help plant a real tree. This tree won’t have any psychic powers, but it has some real significance to Avatar’s environmental message:Cameron, actress CCH Pounder and Fox Executives planted the first of 1,000,000 trees that will be planted in 15 different countries throughout the year. If you like, you can visit the James Cameron tree on the 20th Century Fox backlot. Just tell security I said it was aight.More story and pics after the jump…

The French Get Got in ‘Robin Hood’ Clip

Thursday, April 22 by

Pure Ridley Scott is on display in this new clip from Robin Hood. Not that the action sequence of Robin and his merry men storming a French castle isn't exciting, but Ridley must stage these battles in his sleep now. He pulls a hot oil double-whammy here by having it poured from a vat by the enemy while at the same time hung in sacks on the castle gate by the heroes. Oil vs. oil?! Things are about to get slippery, yo!

You're powerless to resist the confidence.Legendary cocksman Jack Nicholson has been offered a role in LASt VEGAS, a comedy centering around a group of elderly cooz-hounds who reunite in Las Vegas. While there, two of the friends fall for the same woman. Nicholson's potential character is the playboy of the group who has yet to resign his bachelorhood.
