I’m Pretty Sure My Gran Just Farted When I Told Her These Film & TV Updates!

    • FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS The Movie is one step closer to fruition with director PETER BERG (Battleship) saying they’ve got the story – based around the coach – and now its just a matter of lining up Kyle Chandler & Connie Britton schedules so they can go into production. If you missed the TV series do yourself a favour – it’s a cracker!
    • Tony Scott circling LUCKY STRIKE with Vince Vaughn as his next directorial effort.
    • Joss Whedon’s IN YOUR EYES casts Michael Sathl-David (Cloverfield) and Zoe Kazan (Meek’s Cutoff) in the lead roles of this sci-fi romance of two people who have intimate visions of each other but have never met. Kinda like the marriage of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise yeah?
    • FAST & THE FURIOUS 6 gets underway in May! Won’t be shot back to back with part 7. I wonder if there’ll be a 3 way wrestlefest with The Rock, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker?
    • FOX has secured Q’VIVA! The Chosen – The Jennifer Lopez Marc Antony latino singing contest show.
    • You know that lawsuit against Warner Bros on THE LAST SAMURAI – well yep it’s heating up and heading to court. Edward Zwick you’re in the firing line too – but I’d put you there for COURAGE UNDER FIRE and other hate crimes you’ve committed in cinema
    • Kate Cassidy (Gossip Girl) has landed the female lead in the CW show ‘Arrow’. Ok gotta be honest I have no idea who she is but congrats girlfriend!
    • Justin Kirk set to return for Season 8 of Weeds. Man how stoned is that show?? 8 seasons?? I must’ve missed the boat!
    • Josh Zetumer (?) pitch for Action thriller franchise is now property of Universal Pictures. Uni’s got BOURNE, TINKER TAILOR, FAST & FURIOUS – they got it going on over there!
    • My Gran just cranked another one and it smells like biscuits covered with gravy — urgh!
    • Tyler Perrys ‘For Better Or Worse” Gets A 35 Episode order from TBS
    • HANCOCK 2 is still in development! Dear God Why?? $624m at the box office is why!
  • Jay Laga’aia has swiped Australian casting as racist after leaving Home & Away. “Hats off to you Firass Dirani, for a call to stop commercialnetwork producers casting only white actors. Only on Australian screens. Shame! As someone who lost his job on H&A because they couldnt write two ethnics that weren’t together, I’d like a chance to ply my trade freely. I think commercial TV should take a leaf out of children’s TV in this country. We are a rainbow nation in kids TV. No tokens here.” – Jay Laga’aia
  • Oh my god, my Gran’s got a backdoor trumpet solo going on! The cat just collapsed and the neighbours just closed their windows!!! I have to stop or I’m gonna pass out!
