Oh it's on! Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been confirmed to be in the next installment of the Batman saga currently titled "The Dark Knight Rises". Which character he will play has yet to be released but if I know my Batman trivia, which I think I do, I assume he'll be playing the role of King Tut. Google it, trust me it's funny.
Jodi Foster will step behind the camera for a new sci-fi flick that she's developing. No real details on the movie but apparently it'll have a nice warm family feel to it. So maybe something like "ET 2". The world demands it!
"The Seventh Son" has added Julianne Moore to its cast list which already includes Jeff Bridges. Moore will play the most bad ass of all witches who uses blood magic, whatever the hell that is. This is funny because I've always assumed Julianne Moore was a witch in real life because she looks exactly the same as she did 20 years ago. In days of old she would have been burned at the stake for being in her 50's and still being pretty hot.
Everyone and their mother has joined the cast of "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters 3D" including Derek Mears who you might remember as Jason from the "Friday the 13th" remake. Fans of the "MacGruber" movie may also recognize him as "Large Henchman" which I believe got him an Oscar nomination.

I'm pretty sure you need to get your parent's permission when you're 14 years old and want to get a tattoo. Even if you are paying for it with sex like this girl in Pennsylvania did. The 34 year old tattoo artist is now being brought up on charges and I assume he'll try to say he thought she was over 18. For his sake I hope it wasn't a Bieber tattoo.
Derek Mears, your current "Jason Voorhees", joins the cast of Robert Rodriguez's "Predators". Which makes sense, because he's just about the most terrifying human being I've ever seen. In real life that is, not so much in "Friday the 13th".
Scott Derrickson, director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", has signed on to direct the supernatural thriller "The Living".
Follow me on this one. A script that's been floating around called "Nightcrawlers", has officially gotten a director in Mike Mitchell. It also has a new name... "Monster Squad". Apparently the horror/comedy is being turned into a psuedo/not really remake of Fred Dekker's 80's classic. Here's more info.

I always felt a little uncomfortable during drunk taxi rides. Now I know why.
