Just Go Hawaiian already!!
Now you say his name three times and he appears as a crassly commercial version of himself played by Russell Brand.
Marti Noxon (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), whose last name sounds like an element on the periodic table, has turned in a new draft adapting Seth Grahame-Smith’s bestseller.
‘From Mia With Love’ is a comedy about three virgin guys who order a Russian bride, in order to lose their v-cards. Of course, everything goes exactly as planned.
Gillespie seems to have eaten his way back to the front of the horde to direct Jane Austin, but with zombies.
Tim Burton is in talks with actor Michael Sheen (‘New Moon’, ‘Tron: Legacy’) to join the ‘Dark Shadows’ ensemble. Another Sheen is winning for a change.
They expect the author of the book to best understand the material? Preposterous!
We know that Joaquin Phoenix loves beards, so it makes sense that he’s attracted to a project about a man with a legendary beard: motherfreakin’ Abraham Lincoln.
The story might be about Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires, but it was lesser known actor Walker who fought a bunch of high-profile, blood-sucking (okay, maybe not blood-sucking) celebrities to snag the role.
Depp and Burton are the next Sad Keanus.The days of nobody knowing what the hell Tim Burton is directing next have come to an end. Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp (and probably Helena Bonham Carter) will be inked in next to sketches of mawkish bats in the director's day planner. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith is taking over scripting duties from long-time Burton collaborater John August, to adapt the spooky 1960's soap opera. Filming begins in February with Johnny Depp playing the vampire Barnabas Collins. We'll keep you updated on which goofy wig he'll end up in this time. (Deadline)
Depp and Burton are the next Sad Keanus.
Normally I don't put too much stock in books that lack tabs to pull and pop-ups to giggle at, but if Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is half as good as the trailer for it than I may have to give this "reading" thing a shot. The author of the historical horror novel, Seth Grahame-Smith (sounds like a Count), also wrote the New York Time's Bestselling Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I have a copy sitting under a pile of Highlights magazines.If only there was a way to condense the entire novel of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter into visual form… An "adaptation" if you will. Spielberg could direct and Liam Neeson could star. That one's for free, Hollywood. Send my fee directly to some organization that teaches kids to read. No one should have to grow up and blog for a living.Read the trailer with your eyes after the jump.
