NEWS: Crispin Glover, Believe it Or Not, and A Team...

Hey guys! Here are your headlines for this Friday, the 24th of October...

-It looks as though John Singelton has left the long talked about A-Team film...Thanks to /film for the info...
John Singleton has exited 20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of the A-Team. Apparently the project, which has gone through a number of rewrites, is still not ready for prime time. Fox believes they need more time to develop the script, but Singleton is moving on. We no final draft, no director, and no announced cast, I wouldn’t expect to see this film anytime soon. The film was originally set to hit theaters in June 2009, but won’t likely see release until a year later at earliest. Personally, I’ve always been under the theory that the A-Team television series is all the A-Team we need. I for one hope this project falls down into the deep depths of development hell.

Other Fox release changes include: Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel moving to Christmas 2009, pushing the Dwayne Johnson family comedy Tooth Fairy to November 13th 2009, and Christopher Columbus’ teen comedy I Love You Beth Cooper will now hit theaters on Jult 31st, instead of February 13th 2009.

I actually think this is good news. With the loss of Singelton, Ice Cube may now actually be out of the running for Mr. T's character, B.A. Barackas...which I think we can all agree is a good thing...

-Chris Columbus, director of The Goonies and Home Alone, along with the first two Harry Potter films is now in talks to direct the Jim Carrey comdey, Ripley's Believe it Or Not...

-In the brilliant casting department, the ninja of insanity himself Crispin Glover has joined the cast of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and will portray the Knave of Hearts...Me personally, I think this guy is horribly underused, and as you all know by now is my #1 pick to be the Riddler in the inevitable next Batman film. No one would be better...But him in Alice in Wonderland boosts this film to second most anticipated of next year for me, without a doubt...What about you guys?

-Ian McDiarmid, best known as the Emporer in the Star Wars series, is in good condition after a recent heartattack in London...

-Ricky Gervais has turned down an offer to host this years Oscar ceremony...

-Finally, Saw V has an 8% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and that's exactly what I expected. That said, I do know that at least some of you went and saw it last night, so I'm going to simply ask, what did you guys think of it?

That's all I've got for now, so come back later for more movie news...

Go see something good!
