NEWS: Halloween Sequel, Tin Tin, and Phoenix...

Hey guys! So, it's the eve of the '08 Election, and surprisingly, there is quite a bit of movie news. Here are your headlines!

- It looks like Joaquin Phoenix wasn't lying after all. Thanks to Yahoo! for this information...

The words “Good Bye” were penned on the actor’s knuckles at a premiere Saturday night for his latest film, “Two Lovers,” and Phoenix confirmed a surprise announcement he made last week: He’s giving up movies.

“I think it’s just moving on. It’s rediscovering something else,” said Phoenix, 34, said in an interview with Associated Press Television News before Saturday’s American Film Institute festival, which also premiered “Che,” starring Benicio Del Toro. “Two Lovers” is his last film, he said. His publicist had disclosed Friday that the actor intended to focus on music.


What do you guys think? I'm sad to see him leave film, but the guy does have some musical chops, so who knows, it may work out. Best of wishes...

- Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen has wrapped principal photography...

- The upcoming sequel to Rob Zombies Halloween reboot is getting a theatrical release. The film will not have Rob Zombie at the helm, and actually, Zombie will have nothing to do with this sequel.

- Steven Speilberg and Peter Jackson have obtained financing for TWO Tin Tin Films, instead of the projected three...

- Heroes co writers/producers Jesse Alexander and Jeph Lobe have been fired by NBC...

- Here's an update from a story I wrote about at the end of last week. It looks as though Universal has won the alleged biding war over the EA Games video-game, that has yet to even be announced, tentatively called Dante's Inferno.

- Fox Studios is CONSIDERING rebooting the now dead franchise, Planet of The Apes...

- Finally, Max Allan Collins has been signed on to write two new sequels for the Sam Mendes directed, critic favorite, Road to Perdition. The man behind the original Road to Perdition comics will pen the scripts for the upcoming Road To Purgatory and Road to Paradise...

I lied yesterday when I said I would be seeing Rachel Getting Married, and while that may still happen, it looks like I'll get the pleasure to review Role Models for you all. Now, I said it would never get this money, and it won't, because at Grand Valley State University, they like to give away free tickets for advanced screenings. Expect a review on Thursday night...

Go see something good!
