NEWS: Stuff I Missed...

So, I need a vacation every so often in my life, and this weekend saw me take a much needed break from the world that I like to call me regular life. However, one downfall, I don't get to bring you all the film news that I know you all desperately need, or should, to sound awesome when talking to your friends. That said, I have compiled the stories that have broke over the weekend, into this nice little group.

- Matthew McFayden, Mr. Darcy from Joe Wright's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, will portray the Sheriff of Notingham in Ridley Scott's Robin Hood...

- The reboot of Predator, entitled Predators, is getting the reboot treatment, and is set for a July 2010 release date...

- Also in Predators news, long attached director Robert Rodriguez will NOT be helming this reboot, but is getting a producer credit for the piece...

- Michael Caine has joined the cast of Chris Nolan's Inception...

- Variety is reporting that, seemingly due to budget problems, some crew for the upcoming, or allegedly upcoming, adaptation of the video game, Bioshock, have been let go. Universal has officially put the breaks on this much discussed project, set to be helmed by Gore Verbinski.

- To bring some business to the film, Fox is set to release X-Men Origins: Wolverine with several separate, Easter Egg Endings, which will run after the credits...

- IO9 Has posted the 6 graphic novels you all need to read before seeing Wolverine this Friday

- Robert De Niro and Ed Norton will star in Stone, the new film from director John Curran, who has previously helmed We Don't Live Here Anymore, and The Painted Veil.

- Kevin Macdonald, whose film, State Of Play, is brilliant by the way, will develop and direct a big screen adaptation of the 1955 Isaac Asimov novel The End of Eternity.

- Olivia Munn, co-host of Attack of The Show, has been cast in the Tina Fey film, Date Night...

- In WTF news, Alexandre Desplat, composer for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, will be scoring Twilight: New Moon...

- Finally, here is the first trailer for the upcoming sequel, H2, or Halloween 2, directed by Rob Zombie. The weird thing, I am kinda liking this first trailer. It looks a lot better than what I expected, and while that's not really saying much, after such a turd fest that the first film was, any boost in confidence is a bonus. What do you think???



Come back later this week for more news, notes, a hopefully a review of The Soloist, Wolverine, and Fighting.

Go see something good!
