It's often been said that if Johnny Depp and Christopher Nolan ever teamed up the world would explode from all the hot action that would be produced. Well folks get ready for the end of time because it's happening. The movie is "Transcendence" and I think it has something to do with a super computer that gets put inside a dead person or something. I'm not really sure. Truth be told I started reading the description and I started to daydream about Depp's gentle soft smile.
Gillian Anderson has been confirmed to be taking on a multi-episode role in the upcoming NBC show "Hannibal". The show is based on the much loved Hannibal Lecter character and Anderson will play the role of the good doctor's therapist. Funny story. I always get Gillian Anderson and Marlee Matlin mixed up so for a second I thought Lecter's therapist was going to be a deaf woman which I thought was kind of crazy. Good story huh?
ABC has given the thumbs up to a new zombie outbreak series titled "The Returned". Based on a novel by Jason Mott the show will focus on a small town in the Midwest where the dead return to change the lives of those they left behind. Kind of like "Pushing Daises" I'm guessing, only still on the air.
Want to know even more casting news for "Insidious Chapter 2"? Well Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson and Andrew Astor will all be returning for the second installment of the film and I have absolutely no idea who they are or what roles they played. They all have really weird names though huh? Angus. Sounds like dangus. That's funny.

What do you get when a spelling mistake in the word "public" gets run in a newspaper ad? You get a "Pubic Charter School" of course. You also get hilarity.
An Oregon woman took the law into her own hands when she broke into the home of a woman she suspected of having relations with her husband and then tried to run down said husband with her pickup truck. I mean she's in jail now but still, taking the law into your own hands always sounds really bad ass.
Need another reason to come out of your mom's basement and head to Comic Con this year? Well it looks like "Underworld 4" will get it's big premier there in just a couple weeks and what's more the film's star Kate Beckinsale will be on hand to answer a bunch of nerdy questions that you shouldn't actually care about. Dust off your Boba Fett costume, I bet she'll be impressed by it.
While things are still ramping up on Rob Zombie's "The Lords of Salem" the crusty one has been nice enough to give us a glimpse of one of the nasty props he has come up with for the film. Namely a big old chair with tons of little spiky bits shooting out of it that I assume will be used for some sort of witch trial fun. There's also a picture of his wife's ass on the page if the chair doesn't do it for you.
To celebrate it's 20th anniversary 1981's "Halloween 2" will be getting the blu-ray treatment on September 13th of this very year. Trust me I did the math. Along with an alternative ending the disc will also be packed with the 1984 documentary "Terror in the Aisles" which is hosted by Dr. Loomis himself, Donald Pleasence. I can't wait to see what they do for "Halloween H20" in just 7 short years.
Every jackass with a phone can get a video of Beyonce falling on her ass these days and luckily they can also get some video from the set of "The Dark Knight Rises". In the clip you can see Anne Hathaway prancing around the stand-in for Wayne Manor in foggy old England. honestly this could be a behind the scenes shot from "The Princess Diaries 3" for all I know. I think Christopher Nolan is set to direct that too.

A Michigan man who was arrested 5 years ago for making love to a sheep went back on the lamb (I know it's just to easy) recently and was taken back into custody after breaking into a local farm where a group of cows and pigs were being housed. Nice to see he loves all animals equally though. Nice to see in this day and age.
Well it's as good an excuse as any I guess. An Oregon man was arrested recently while looking into a woman's house after his excuse of looking for his cat didn't fly with the cops. Of course not many people look for their cat while using their body as an amusement park but what do I know. I'm more of a dog person.
Josh Stewart, who 8 of you might remember from "The Collector" is the latest to be added to the cast of Chris Nolan's "The Dark knight Rises". As usual there's no word as to what role he'll be playing but I'm going to toss out a curve ball and guess Aquaman. Yeah, I said it.
Matthew Fox, Ed Harris and Julia Levy-Boeken are all rumored to be joining the ever growing cast of the big screen adaptation of Max Brook's "World War Z". Fox you probably know from "Lost", Harris wasn't Robocop but I will insist he was till the day I die and Levy-Boeken is French so you'll soon know her as that girl with hairy armpits who was in "World War Z".
"ParaNorman" is a new stop motion zombie/comedy from the fine people that created "Coraline" that's schedule to hit theaters next summer. But animated characters need voices my friends and it looks like Alex Borstein who does the voice of Lois Griffin on "Family Guy" will be added to the list of talent that already includes Casey Affleck, John Goodman and a number of others. I have no idea how they're going to fit all these people into one of those tiny recording booths.
What in the sweet hell is going on with shark attack movies this summer? Where was it decided that sharks were the new vampires? Where the hell are my keys!? I'm so frightened. Anyway here's the trailer for "Dark Tide" a new chop flick that stars one Halle Berry who I assume was cast based on the fact that her character spends 75% of her screen time in a bikini. Which makes me wonder why I wasn't cast... someone get my agent on the phone.
It's the age of social media my friends. You can do anything online! Like this woman in Philadelphia who went on Facebook to find a hitman to kill her Ex, offering up $1,000 to any takers. I feel like real hitmen probably charge a lot more than this. You're going to get some really shoddy killing for only a grand.
