Max Brooks’ World War Z: An Oral History Of The Zombie War is easily in the upper echelons of zombie fiction. Then why is Paramount having a hard time finding somebody to pick up the tab?

Paramount Desperate for ‘Dune’ Director
Monday, November 8 by

With a spring deadline looming on its option for the sci-fi classic, Dune, Paramount is in a mad dash to secure a director and set a start date for production. If the studio is not “absolutely confident” in the project by early 2011, it will lose its right to the film.

Tony Scott Will Jump Back In The Cockpit For ‘Top Gun 2′
Monday, October 25 by

Paramount's attempts to woo Tony Scott back for a Top Gun sequel were a success. Though it won't be his next film, the director seems pretty excited to show off the nerdy side of the 'new' Navy.
"I'm not waiting for a script. I'm going to do my homework. I'm going down to I think it's Fallon, Nevada, down near New Mexico and it's a whole different world now… These computer geeks — these kids play war games in a trailer in Fallon, Nevada and if we ever wentto war or were in the Middle East or the Far East or wherever it is, these guys can actually fly drones. They are unmanned aircraft. They operate them and then they party all night."
Without any actual pilots, the story has nothing at stake. The drama of the original Top Gun was watching Maverick push himself to his limits and beyond in the cockpit. Now the biggest challenge is going to be watching Taylor Lautner get video game thumb. Which, in all fairness, does really hurt. (HitFix)

‘Shield’ Creator Shawn Ryan to Take On Tom Clancy’s ‘Without Remorse’
Thursday, October 21 by

Shawn's here for dinner. Invite him in.
"The Shield" creator Shawn Ryan has been hired to turn Tom Clancy's best-seller Without Remorse into a kick-ass script for Paramount. Star Trek writer-producers, and J.J. Abrams's BFFs, Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci are producing. Vulture shoops with the scoop:
The book follows one of Clancy's recurring characters, John Kelly (who later assumes the alias of John Clark, and appears in the Jack Ryan novels like Patriot Games and Rainbow Six), as he seeks revenge against the Baltimore drug ring responsible for the death of his girlfriend. While the book is set in the 1970s during the Vietnam War, insiders tell us there's no definitive plan to make the film a "period" piece.
The thought of Shawn Ryan writing the story of a man seeking revenge against a drug ring stimulates my pleasure centers. "The Shield" is one of my favorite shows of all time. If Without Remorse captures the same tone with characters as rich and compelling as Vic Mackey and his Strike Team then I'd say Paramount has a successful franchise on its hands. Just don't get Walton Goggins to play the role of the hick, if there even is one. Dude needs to branch out. "President" has a nice ring to it.

‘Jackass 3D’s Dumbest Injuries, Most Brilliant Stunts
Wednesday, October 13 by

You may be excited to see what crazy new stunts they try in Jackass 3D but let’s be honest. What you really want to know is who got hurt the worst. And who got hurt the worst doing the stupidest thing. It’s a toss-up, but seeing Bam Margera take a taser on the head seemed the most life threatening. It’s one thing on your stomach or side, but is your skull designed to withstand electro-shock?

“I got tasered everywhere and it hurts so bad that I was still angry for the rest of the day about it,” Margera said. “It’s just one of those annoying kind of pains, like a stun gun 40 times, it makes you mad and I was just f*cking mad all day about it. I also broke my clavicle that day falling. I’m telling you that that probably sucked the worst out of this movie for me, except for the snakes.”

The Rules of ‘Jackass 3D’
Monday, October 11 by

You might think anything goes with Jackass, but there’s actually a complex system in place to ensure the most awesome Jackassery happens safely. Number one rule: You must be sober to dive into poo.

“It’s been a rule forever,” director Jeff Tremaine said. “You don’t do stunts if you’ve been partying that day. But right after… You can do it hung over but if I know someone’s been drinking or doing something else, then they don’t shoot that day. I might find out later that Preston did some Xanax the day he did the King Kong bit. He was terrified of heights one day and the next day, ‘Oh, no problem. I’ll climb up there.’ I should’ve known something’s up. Even Steve-O at his worst, I don't think you were ever wasted during a stunt. The guys are never wasted during the stunt. You might get wasted right after. The guys watching it might get wasted but even buzzed.”

‘Mission: Impossible 4′ Bags Two More Villains
Thursday, October 7 by

Brad Bird can't quit adding baddies, and people in general, to his Mission: Impossible 4 movie. Michael Nyqvist from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films recently joined as a villain, and now Anil Kapoor and Lea Seydoux have chosen to accept the mission of kicking Ethan Hunt's ass.
You might remember Kapoor as the backstabbing game show host in Slumdog Millionaire, and Seydoux from Robin Hood and the intense opening scene in Inglourious Basterds. The two join an already huge cast of Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Michael Nyqvist, Ving Rhames, Simon Pegg, and Josh Holloway. With that many people lending a hand, the mission seems to be getting less impossible. Team work, you guys! (Deadline)

‘Lost’ Star Josh Holloway Recruited For ‘Mission: Impossible 4′
Tuesday, September 28 by

Josh Holloway, best known for playing con man and quip spouter Sawyer on "Lost," has chosen to accept Mission: Impossible 4 as his next project. He'll suit up with a cast that already includes Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Ving Rhames, and Simon Pegg. No details on who he'll play or what he'll do or how the movie will include a plot. I do know the when. It's shooting in the fall for a December 2011 release.
Mission: Impossible 4 will be directed by Brad Bird, the guy who makes terrific animated movies. It's the first studio film for Holloway and the first live action studio film for Bird. Talk about the odd men out. If some teasing and serious intimidation on Tom Cruise's part doesn't cause rifts in production someone isn't taking full advantage of their elite Hollywood status. Give the rookies purple nurples while you still can, veterans! (THR)

‘Sherlock Holmes’ Writer Called in for ‘Jack Ryan’ Film
Monday, September 20 by

Anthony Peckham, the writer behind Sherlock Holmes and Invictus, is Paramount's choice to pen the latest Jack Ryan film, Empire Online is reporting. The film, starring Chris Pine and directed by Jack Bender, will mark the 5th time the iconic Tom Clancy character has appeared on the silver screen.

In the film, Ryan and his trusty sidekick Watson will attempt to stop an attack on Nelson Mandela as he watches a rugby game atop the Tower of London. That's my guess, anyway. What do I look like, a god damn 19th century detective?
