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!

Jack Nicholson Sought For Role of Jack Nicholson in ‘LASt VEGAS’

Thursday, April 22 by

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. It's being described as Grumpy Old Men meets The Hangover. Some might say that's also the perfect way to describe Rip Torn. (Vulture)

‘Project Runway’ Host Heidi Klum

Thursday, April 22 by

Heidi Klum's legal name is now Samuel because she married a Seal and gave birth to its two children. Before she mingled with singers named after aqautic life, Heidi was a SUPERmodel. In middle school, I wanted to marry her. Now after the two baby Seals, not so much. A word from Heidi: "Going blonde is like buying yourself a light bulb!"She must have said that while she was a blonde.Okay I'd still marry her. See why after the jump.

Seth Rogen or Chris Pine Up for Role in ‘This Means War’

Thursday, April 22 by

Seth Rogen and Chris Pine are being considered for the role vacated by Bradley Cooper in This Means War. Makes sense seeing as they're all pretty much the same guy. If you're squinting really hard.The romantic comedy tells the story of two best friends who compete for the affections of Reese Witherspoon and leave New York City decimated in their wake. Because if there's one thing that New York City is lacking in, it's women hotter than Reese Witherspoon. One the one hand, Chris Pine fits the heart-throb bill better than Rogen. Yet on the other, Rogen's packing the right equipment should director McG decide to include a topless scene. I could see this one going either way. (The Wrap)

25 Real Life Superheroes

Thursday, April 22 by

Kick-Ass kicked a dragon's ass at the box office this past weekend, so we thought we'd honor the triumph by showcasing 25 real life superheroes. Maybe Kick-Ass can team up with Captain Ozone Ireland for the sequel. I heard he's got sweet nunchuck skillz.

‘Friday the 13th’ Sequel Is Dead – Not Happening

Thursday, April 22 by

Last we heard from Brad Fuller, he and Platinum Dunes were not sure what was going to happen with Friday the 13th 2: The Squeakquel. Yesterday on Twitter Fuller announced, "it is dead – not happening." No further explanation was provided as Fuller chose to not use his remaining 113 characters, but it can be assumed this stems from Platinum Dunes's desire to move away from the horror genre.Still, it comes as a surprise though considering the cash the remake raked in. And it's strange to think of a world without a never-ending string of Friday the 13th sequels. They've been a part of life as long as I can remember. Like my effeminate throwing ability and the constant taunting from my peers. (Bloody Disgusting)

‘Avatar 2′ Will Explore Pandora’s Oceans

Wednesday, April 21 by

Photo taken in an alternate universe where James Cameron is a member of Tangerine Dream.It won't be long before Sam Worthington plugs his hair into a double-tailed dolphin in order to glide amongst the extra-finned fish and decempi of Pandora's oceans. James Cameron has announced that Avatar 2 will combine his love of the deep with his love of deep pockets."Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I'm going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won't be a rain forest. I'm not saying we won't see what we've already seen; we'll see more of that as well."Man, Cameron loves him some bodies of water. Just look at his moistened resume: Titanic, The Abyss, Aliens of the Deep, Ghosts of the Abyss, Pirahna II, and that time he pushed Michael Biehn into a pool. (LA Times)

‘South Park’ Messed With the Wrong Muslims

Wednesday, April 21 by

"South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have predictably drawn controversy with their recent 200th episode. A Muslim website issued a warning that the duo will likely be killed for their recent depiction of Muhammad in a bear suit. The posting also included a graphic picture of slain Theo van Gogh, a documentary filmmaker killed for mocking the prophet in a film about violence against Muslim women.“We have to warn Matt and Trey that what they are doing is stupid and they will probably wind up like Theo Van Gogh for airing this show. This is not a threat, but a warning of the reality of what will likely happen to them.”No strangers to controversy or death threats, Parker and Stone are more than likely not taking this warning to heart. Muslims don't mess around when mocked or disrespected. I guess you could say that the (Ed. Note: Joke deleted. I cherish my life). (FoxNews)
