I’m Watching My Website Go Psycho & Still I Can Bring You This Film & TV Updates

  • Seriously, my page is having a fit – someone get Steve Jobs in here!! Oh, wait, too soon….
  • UNIVERSAL has revived the OUIJA film which it shelved last year. It;s based on the board game where the original McG shelved project was budgeted north of $100m, this newly revived version – budget $5m!
  • Why don’t things just work sometimes!? Why do internet things go all skewy?! WHY WHY WHY!
  • YAHOO! is about to lay off a wall of staff
  • I’m about to lay a fresh mushroom cloud on my website in a minute – should’ve skipped that curry for breakfast
  • CBS Pilot ‘QUEAN’ is not going ahead after SONY threatened to sue over likenesses to their GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO series. QUEAN centers on an edgy and independent female hacker who teams up with an Oakland police detective to solve crimes.
  • But no-one batted an eyelid when DEEP IMPACT and ARMAGEDDON got made, or VOLCANO and DANTE’S PEAK, or the 14,000 BEAUTY & THE BEAST incarnations coming this year, or the 35,000,000 SNOW WHITE versions this year too. Since when has originality ever been a consideration in Hollywood?
  • There’s a new awards show coming: THE INTERNATIONAL EMMY KIDS AWARDS
  • Yay let’s fan kid labour laws relaxation and irresponsible ego inflating in toddlers!!! Wee Hee!
  • Doug Ellin’s (Entourage) new show ’40’ is not going ahead. The pilot starred Ed Burns, Michael Imperioli, Michael Rappaport & Adrian Pasdar. HBO weren’t satisfied, even with re-writes, and shelved the project.
  • I reckon this is also in the wake of Ray Romano’s failed 40’s show and I MELT WITH YOU failing too
  • Michael Gambon joins LUCK
  • HBO really are the forefront of modern TV – Now Gambon joins Hoffman and Nolte – wow!
  • Nicolette Sheridan’s law suit against Marc Cherry on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES rages on and its all getting catty. CHERRY has testified that he ‘tapped her on the head’ and his story has never changed. He also cites that the decision to kill of her character Britt was due to “unprofessional behaviour” and “cost saving”. More as it develops.
  • This is even better than the TV show (I can’t back that up, I’ve never watched it) it’s like watching two rich bitches have a money fight
  • Queen Latifah & David Broome have had the reality singing program greenlit for U.S. Summer by CW. THE STAR NEXT DOOR has hosts Gloria Estefan and John Rich attached.
  • Is Gloria the new Paula?
  • The Rock has been cast in the lead of Brett Ratner’s Hercules reincarnation CIUDAD
  • Basically if you want to rejuvenate anything that’s got franchise possibilities THE ROCK is the man to go to!
  • Zoe Saldana & Christian Bale are looking to team up in the thriller OUT OF THE FURNACE
  • BILL & TED PART 3 script is finished
  • Like whoa dude that totaly righteously awesome dude!
