Official Bidness: Tarsem Singh Directing Brett Ratner’s ‘Snow White’
Tuesday, November 2 by

At last count, there are approximately 8,654 versions of Snow White currently in the Hollywood pipeline. Give or take. First, there's Disney's Snow White and the Seven, the action-driven Snow White and the Huntsman, and Brett Ratner's gangsta re-imagining of the classic fairy tale. Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Immortals) drew the short straw, and will be directing Ratner's take.
Now, don't be concerned that this will be your grandfather's Snow White (assuming your grandfather was always talking about Snow White) because as previously noted by Ratner, "This is not your grandfather's Snow White." I don't know how to break this news to my grandfather. He's been really looking forward to our movie date. (THR)

Matthew Broderick and Casey Affleck Are In ‘Tower Heist’ Too
Tuesday, October 26 by

Tower Heist keeps inching closer to becoming a movie by picking up talent left and right. Matthew Broderick is now on board to play a Wall Street suit who joins Ben Stiller in the plot to get revenge against Alan Alda's Madoff-like character. Fake documentarian Casey Affleck is also joining up as Stiller's best friend/voice of reason. He'll help complicate the would-be robbery when he takes a firm stance against it. Judd Hirsch will play an unspecified role in the film. Let's just assume he'll play an old school New Yorker. Or a cop. Or a guy who looks like a Cookie Puss ice cream cake.

The resemblance is quite haunting. (via /Film)

Gabourey Sidibe and Michael Pena Grab Roles In ‘Tower Heist’
Wednesday, October 20 by

He can't resist a photo op.
The 1st Assistant Camera on Brett Ratner's The Tower Heist had better not forget to put a long lens on the order. Precious star Gabourey Sidibe has picked up an unknown role on the film, as has "Eastbound and Down's" very funny Michael Pena.
They'll join Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in the film that pits the little guy against a crooked Bernie Madoff type played by Alan Alda. Other than that, we don't have a lot of details. But now we know that the heist most likely won't involve taking the stairs. And before you chastise me in the comments section for making a fat joke at Sidibe's expense, you should know it was a lazy joke at Pena's expense. And no, not because he's Mexican. Man, I can't win with you guys. (Deadline)

Eddie Murphy Joins Brett Ratner’s ‘Tower Heist’ Because Nothing Matters Anymore
Wednesday, October 13 by

From that time all these guys were in Paris together.
Trying to break up his stint of accepting bad movie roles, Eddie Murphy has decided to appear in a bad movie role that won't require a fat suit. Not to be worn by him at least. Murphy will be joining Ben Stiller in Brett Ratner's Tower Heist.
This the second time that Murphy was attached to this film. He was the initial star years ago while it was in development. He passed, then Chris Rock passed, and then Chris Tucker passed. Then Ben Stiller (the next logical choice) took over the role. No word yet on which supporting character Murphy will play, but I've got a good feeling that Ben Stiller will learn the consequences of touching his radio. (EW)

Brett Ratner Is a Damn ‘Communist’
Wednesday, September 29 by

For years, I've been saying that Brett Ratner is a damn communist, and for years my allegations have fallen on deaf ears. But now, I finally have the proof I need to bring down this pinko once and for all.

Ratner is set to direct The Reluctant Communist, the story about Charles Robert Jenkins, a U.S. Army soldier who ended up spending 40-years as a "prisoner" in North Korea after "drunkenly" deserting during the Korean War. While "imprisoned," Jenkins was "forced" to act in North Korean propaganda films and became a national celebrity, usually playing the evil American. There are worse ways to spend a 40-year prison term. Why do I keep thinking of the scene where they first thaw out Austin Powers?

Basil Exposition: Austin, the Cold War is over!
Austin Powers: Finally those capitalist pigs will pay for their crimes, eh? Eh comrades? Eh?
Basil Exposition: Austin… we won.
Austin Powers: Oh, smashing, groovy, yay capitalism!

At any rate, hopefully Ratner will do some on-site research in North Korea very soon. (Variety)
