Adi Shankar, who's produced films like "The Grey" and "Dredd 3D" apparently has plans for a new take on "The Expendables" using some of today's, or yesterday's, hottest action actresses. Dutch Southern has already been signed up to pen the script but no word yet on who would be in the film or when it would actually be happening. Two words. Kathleen Turner.
Ryan Lee, who you might remember from "Super 8", has been cast in the upcoming bully flick "White Rabbit". The film follows a young lad who starts to be haunted by a white rabbit, among other things, that he killed as a child. I had no idea you could bully animals. I thought they were just dumb beasts for our amusement and hunting pleasure. honestly I don't think a movie is going to change my mind on that now that I think about it.
No big surprise here but "Resident Evil: Retribution", the next chapter in the RE saga has been slapped with an R rating by the folks over at the MPAA. The big R has been handed down because of "sequences of strong violence throughout" so good news for fans of the series. I assume "mom hips" was also a big reason but you can't very well come out and say something like that can you.
And sad news today my friends. Tony Scott, brother of Ridley Scott and director of such classics as "Top Gun ", "True Romance" and "The Fan" has died after taking his own life this past Sunday.
In Real People News:
A 20 year old man in Pennsylvania (shocker) has been sentenced to probation after he was caught going down on a horse. I mean it was a female horse so you know... I don't know actually, I'm walking a real fine line here. I'm just going to leave this one alone.
A 47 year old Nigerian man has been picked up in the fine state of Texas after it was found that he had over 2 pounds of heroin shoved in his bowels. I have no idea how that was discovered but I bet there's an awesome story... behind it. Behind it! Get it?!
