Before you all jet off for your weekend of high spirited, fun, adventure, or simply drinking yourself silly and watching endless television repeats, let’s dish out the last couple of day’s bits, which includes the trailer for the Rock’s new movie, title change whispers for a Tom Cruise flick and someone steps up to the plate to beat the tug out of Russell Crowe. Would’ve been a popular gig I’m sure…

  • Coming Soon has the trailers up for The Rock’s newie “Walking Tall” and Kate Bosworth comedy “Win a Date with Ted Hamilton”.

  • According to SneekPeek.CA, Buena Vista’s "Dark Water" begins filming January 12, 2004 in Toronto, then back and forth to New York until March. Thanks to ‘Michael’

  • According to Dark Horizons, Tom Cruise has let slip that the Michael Mann film “Collateral” might be undergoing a title change. Meantime, the site reports that the Ben Stiller – Dodgeball comedy has been titled “Red Rubber Hell”

  • Director Justin Lin is in talks to helm and co-write the basketball comedy “Street” at MGM Pictures, centering on an NBA expansion team facing slim pickings in the draft, retiring players and a restrictive salary cap. The team elects to staff its bench by hitting urban blacktop streetball courts, with comedic results.

  • Jordan Melamed will adapt and director “Twelve”, the much-hyped novel by teenage scribe Nick McDonell, centering on the freewheeling, decadent lifestyle of Manhattan’s young and rich.

  • Jessica Alba will star in a remake of South Korean romantic comedy “Surprise Party”, which follows a young woman who gets into trouble after she agrees to pick up her best friend’s new husband at the airport.

  • Craig Bierko [“The Long Kiss Goodnight”] is in talks to star as a boxer in the new Russell Crowe flick “Cinderella Man”. Bierko would play Max Baer, Braddock’s [Crowe] toughest challenger, a world heavyweight champion renowned for having killed two men in the ring.

  • Hope Davis [“Next Stop Wonderland”] will star opposite Nicolas Cage in “Weather Man”. She’ll play the estranged wife of a successful TV weathercaster who’s about to leave Chicago for Gotham. With his personal life in disarray, he attempts to reconcile with his spouse and kids.

  • There’s new life for “Flora Plum”, a film that’s been in the works for about 6 years. Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp will produce and handle international sales on Jodie Foster’s $24 million flick, starring Ewan McGregor, Claire Danes and Meryl Streep.

  • Producers Todd Komarnicki and Jon Berg are developing “Compton Cricket Story” as a feature through their Guy Walks Into a Bar production company. The project centers on the true story of Compton teens who formed an unlikely cricket team that toured against top club teams in Britain in 1999 and 2001, meeting Prince Edward, the Earl of Wessex and Gerry Adams of Sinn Fein.

  • The Soundtrack for “The Punisher” is being promoted here, you can even listen to the first track. Thanks to Superhero Hype

  • Sandra Bullock, Brendan Fraser, Matt Dillon, Ryan Phillippe, Thandie Newton, Larenz Tate, Nona Gaye and rapper Ludacris are jumping onboard "Crash", described as being in the style of "Pulp Fiction" and "Traffic." It follows a multiethnic cast through the streets of Los Angeles as they careen in and out of one another’s lives.

  • Dean Devlin and Charles Segars have acquired the remake rights to "The Doberman Gang" films which focused on a canine corps trained by a small-time crook to pull off the perfect bank robbery. However, the dogs become crime-fighting heroes when they thwart the thief’s plan.

  • Dimension Films has acquired film rights to Steve Niles’ “Hyde”, a comic book proposal that re-imagines the classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde horror story, with Mike Fleiss producing.

  • Jeff Garlin [“Curb Your Enthusiasm”], will write, direct and star in the independent feature “I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With”, a romantic comedy about a man’s unnatural relationship with women and food.
