Does everyone hate Sacha Baron Cohen now? Is that the new thing? I'm on board I guess.
Isabelle Fuhrman will always be the creepy little girl from "Orphan" to me. Except when I read "Orphan" quickly and think it says Oprah. Then I just get really really confused. Especially when I read Oprah is going to be starring the "Suspiria" remake. So just to recap, Oprah is not starring in remake of Dario Argento's classic film "Suspiria". Isabelle Fuhrman who was in "Orphan" will be. And they're both creepy. but for different reasons.
The cast of the "Carrie" remake looks to be shaping up nicely with both Alex Russell and Ansel Elgort in talks to take on roles in the film. I have no idea who either of those guys are and I think one of them does Broadway crap so I'm kind of happy about that. Good talk huh?
"Contagion" writer Scott Z. Burns has been tapped to pen the script for the upcoming sequel to 2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes". Rupert Wyatt, who directed the first film will also take the director's chair this time around. Also, Andy Serkis, who jumped around in a suit to bring Caesar the ape to life will return and most likely spawn a bunch of ridiculous talk that a guy who rolls around on the ground in a leotard should get an Oscar.
Everyone's favorite little spark plug Amy Adams is in talks to play the lead in a new film called "Dark Places". Adams would be Libby Day, a woman who becoming involved with a secret society that's obsessed with the strange murder of her family some 25 years ago. Can she look adorable while visiting her convicted brother in prisons? All signs point to yes.
A Utah student is in hot water after he mistakenly left his homework inside a house he robbed. So not only is he going to jail but now he also has to explain to his teacher why his homework is missing. This is probably a lot cooler than the dog ate it story though.
Hot pockets kids! Looks like there's a film in the works based on the Matterhorn rollercoaster ride at Disneyland. Currently titled "The Hill" the film will focus on a group travelers who head to the top of a mountain and encounter a bunch of Yeti's on the way down. Then their lap bars hit them in the nuts and they walk around funny for the rest of the day. I added that part but it would make it really authentic to the ride experience so I'm pretty sure they'll include it.
Because the teat isn't completely dry the good people at Lionsgate will be putting out a special 25th anniversary edition of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn". In all fairness it'll be on Blu-Ray and it'll have a boat load of new interviews and commentaries but honestly at this point what more can you say. "Oh hey I never noticed that chair in the corner of the room before. Let's talk about that".
Steven Spielberg and Stephen King are teaming up with Showtime to create a new series based on King's 2009 novel "Under the Dome". The story focuses on a group of vacationers in Maine who begin battling after a strange force field appears over their town. Wasn't that the basis of "The Simpsons Movie"? I hope this one is funny too and makes a lot of doughnut references.
Looks like Amy Adams is being eyed by Warner Bros. to take the lead in the upcoming remake of "The Orphanage". Nothing's been confirmed yet but Adams would play the role of a woman who takes over the orphanage where she was raised only to find that the imaginary friends her son is playing with are out to get her. I don't know who played that part in the original and honestly I don't care. There's no way she was as adorable as Amy Adams. Once again the USA makes things better.

You never know when love will strike. Sometimes it'll be at a book store, sometimes it'll be at Burger King and other times it'll be in a pool while looking at a sexy inflatable raft. What makes it better is that the Ohio man who is up on charges for having relations with the flotation device was arrested last year for getting it on with an inflatable pumpkin. I wonder if the pumpkin is jealous.
