Word around campus is that there could be a TV series in the works based on the 1992 Brett Leonard film "The Lawnmower Man". David Titcher is already working on a script for the pilot and plans to announce the show are rumored to be in line for this year's Cannes. So see, there's no reason to go to Cannes. You can just read my news and eat a croissant.
I could have sworn filming had already begun but according to Tom Hardy he's been on stand by for "Mad Max: Fury Road" for over two years and doesn't expect to see things moving along anytime soon. Now that I think of it I'm pretty sure I remember filming already being done and the movie being released. I loved it! Yeah that's right I loved it. This Tom Hardy guy is a giant liar. Who are you going to believe? Pick a side. Now.
There can only be one "Highlander" remake! Well there can be more than one I guess. There can be as many as Hollywood wants. But the one it wants right now may have in fact found a leading man in the form of hunky boom box profit Ryan Reynolds. Nothing has been confirmed and so far no official offers have been made but I'm being 100% honest here, I have no idea what that last part means. It sounds really cool though.
It's a day of old things being new my friends. That might not make sense but let's just go with it. today we've got news from the "Blade Runner" camp that the new film will be a sequel that will pick up shortly where the 1982 original left off. Which is fun because the original was set in 2019, which is really only a few years away. So let's see how they lie their way out of this one.
The world doesn't need another "Underworld" movie but according to recently polls the world does need partly nude Kate Backinsale. It just so happens that both of these collide in the giant werewolf vs vampire masterpiece that is "Underworld: Awakening" which has its first trailer ready for your viewing. Watch it and let us know if anything awakened. You sinner you.
Ridley Scott is confirming that he will direct and produce a new "Blade Runner" film in the not to distant future. Unfortunately that's about all the info that's been released on the project so no telling if the film will be a sequel, prequel or even a remake. Will Harrison Ford be in it? Will I see it 18 years after it's release date and wonder what the hell the big deal is like the original? Only time will tell.
I'm not going to lie, I like the way Carla Gugino is put together. Now that that's out in the open I'd like to tell you about "Hide", a new made for TV film she'll be staring in that sees her playing the role of Boston detective investigating a case of 6 women who turn up mummified. Will she have an accent? Oh I hope she has an accent!
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has a name I couldn't begin to try an pronounce but he's directed a bunch of movies that smart people like so it's probably exciting news for anyone who reads the Wall Street Journal that he's signed on to direct a new bear attack movie set in 1823 titled "The Revenant". I can also not pronounce that title so this guy's 2 for 2 on me. I smell Oscar.
In Real People News:
It seems like common knowledge but apparently this Idaho woman doesn't know the unwritten rule of making sure the elderly person you're stealing prescription medicine from is senile enough to not remember anything. She must have been absent that day in school.
And here's a 22 year old from Maine who was arrested after he stole a man's credit card. How did they catch him? Well he called the credit card company to see what kind of credit limit he was working with. For god's sake you set up an online account if you want to do that crap. Everyone knows that.
