ROCK ON EXPENDABLES 2

In response to rumours that he may be approached to donate his brawn to “The Expendables” sequel, Dwayne Johnson says “It all depends on the material. I’ve known Sly for a long time now and he’s a buddy of mine so it all depends on the material.” So I think it, um, ‘all depends on the material’? Is that what you’re saying, pal? (More…)

TYRA’S A NATURAL BORN KILLER!

ex-Dillon resident Adrianne Palicki (“Friday Night Lights”, “Lone Star”) has signed on to guest-star in an episode of ”Criminal Minds” that pays homage to Oliver Stone’s seminal criminal satire ”Natural Born Killers”. (More…)

JASON LIVES!

A sequel to Platinum Dunes’ “Friday the 13th” is said to be in the works. Fridaythe13thfilms.com says that Warner Bros is in development on Jason Voorhees’ next jaunt. No word if Derek Mears would reprise his role as the hockey-masked horror.

CASTING CALL FOR LINCOLN

A casting call has been issued for “Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter” – and like “Man of Steel”, seems those involved aren’t against the idea of casting an unknown in the title role. What’s Playing says they’re looking for an actor that will play Abraham from ages 20 to 56. “At 20, not yet the iconic image we associate with our 16th President, this version of Abe is tall, boyish, and occasionally impulsive; a kind, intelligent, well-spoken and good-hearted man, if a bit awkward at social events and around the ladies. He’s also an extremely skilled fighter. Abe works as a shopkeeper, lawyer and burgeoning political figure by day. He woos Mary Todd and debates Stephen Douglas, preparing for an eventual run for the Presidency. Seen also in middle age, extremely tall with a lined face and a trademark beard and stovepipe hat, he is a thoughtful, extraordinary orator. Honest Abe wins the White House in the midst of growing strife between the North and South. Despite his advanced age, Mr. Lincoln remains an innovative and fearsome fighter…”

MY SO CALLED CIA CAREER

Many, many years (though it feels like yesterday) after she hit the big time on TVs “My So Called Life”, Claire Danes is returning to Television. The actress will front a new Showtime series called “Homeland”. In the show, the “Romeo & Juliet” star plays a driven CIA officer. (More…)

THE LATEST ON CHASEN MURDER

Publicist Ronni Chasen’s murder may have been planned, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It was first though that the coldblooded killing may have been the result of a random carjacking. Still, there is no solid evidence in the case.

GRAPHIC NOVEL WILSON COMING TO CINEMAS

Fox Searchlight has made a deal for ”Wilson”, a Dan Clowes-created graphic novel that the author will adapt as a potential directing vehicle for Alexander Payne (“Election”). (More…)

30 MINUTES A WEEK WITH ROB RIGGLE

CBS is in negotiations for a half-hour comedy project from ”Saturday Night veteran” Robert Smigel to which “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Riggle is attached to star. (More….)

BEAU BRIDGES JOINS BROTHERS & SISTERS

Michael Ausiello reports that Beau Bridges will reunite with his “Norma Rae” co-star Sally Field on ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters”. Bridges will play a love interest for Field’s Walker matriarch Nora in at least five episodes. (More…)

MEDIUM PUT OUT OF BUSINESS

“Medium” creator Glenn Gordon Caron confirmed via Facebook today that the show has been canceled. “It’s true. Allison Dubois will dream her last dream on Medium Friday, January 21st. In what we believe will be a series defining episode, Allison and her family will stare destiny in the eye. And destiny will not blink.”

DOWNEY JR RETURNS TO EARTH, QUITS GRAVITY

Robert Downey Jr, who had been long attached to co-star in the science fiction film, has exited Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity”. Downey has turned his attention to Fox’s “How to Talk to Girls”, an adaptation of a book by a nine-year old boy revolving around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex (More…)

KIRSTEN DUNST TALKS SPIDER-MAN REBOOT

In an interview with Screen Junkies, Kirsten Dunst says she’s more than happy to see the “Spider-Man” series continue without her. “I feel like it was time, you know,” she said while promoting her upcoming film ”All Good Things”. “Sometimes they always want to push things for money reasons or whatever and it just didn’t come together the way they probably had wanted or envisioned. I like Andrew Garfield so much as an actor and Emma Stone so I think they’ll be great in the new version.”

CLASSIC TRAILER OF THE WEEK :

Trespass (1992)
Moviehole’s Guy Davis and I were just discussing this film yesterday, markedly our adoration for it. It feels like yesterday this thing came out (alas, it was 18 years ago!), and I remember clear-as-day planning a trip to the big smoke (we lived in the country) with my [late] buddy just so we could see it. Yup, four hours for a movie starring Ice Cube and Ice T! Spare me, it was ’92 – I blew smoke rings, wore my cap backwards, listened to 2LiveCrew and, well, had nothing better to do.
