Out promoting her upcoming movie "Avatar" that you may have heard of, Sigourney Weaver drops some possible plot bombs pertaining to "Ghostbusters 3". These are pretty juicy details, so I will leave them out of this post. If you're intrigued as to the future of Peter Venkman and Oscar the baby? Be sure to click through.
A drunken Chinese boy mystifies doctors as he magically changes the channel on the television every time he rolls over. Further testing proved that the magic came from the remote control lodged in his anus.
Akroyd gives more details on "Ghostbusters 3". Apparently the "young recruits" we've mentioned will be "cadets" at some kind of academy. That is AWESOME. He also says that they are going to do everything they can to get Sigourney Weaver on board, who seems to be the last holdout in restarting the franchise.
The plot is pretty standard but the title isn't. Today's awesome indie title award goes to Albino Farm. That is all.
If you live in New York or Las Angeles, you will see a teaser for Rob Zombie's "H2" before "Crank 2" this weekend. If you're not in those areas, tough luck. You will see Amy Smart's boobs though, and that is the greatest gift anyone could ask for.
In Real People News:
The founders of The Pirate Bay, one of the world's largest Torrent tracking sites, have been on trial for some time now in Sweden over the breaking of copyright law. Today the trial ended with each of the founders being fined 3.6 million each, and being sent to jail for one year. The case is expected to be appealed.
Bush Administration memos on torture released by the Obama administration revealed today that they had authorized "putting insects inside a confinement box" as a method of interrogation. Who knew they were taking cues from Jigsaw and Fear Factor! And you thought they were culturally inept.
1965: The FBI Laboratory in Washington reports their inability to make out the vocals on the hit single "Louie Louie." Thus, the Bureau is unable to determine whether the record constitutes obscene matter.
"Fanboys" director Kyle Newman to step in to direct "War Monkeys", after the original director Kevin Munroe had to bow out due to "scheduling conflicts". "War Monkeys" is about two janitors who get stuck in a government research facility over Christmas holiday who have accidentally released war-trained Rhesus monkeys. Wackiness and (presumably) carnage ensues.
Apparently when Harold Raimis says that the entire original cast will return for "Ghostbusters 3", that includes Rick Moranis. That of course means they can only start shooting once his latest direct to video sequel for "Honey I Shrunk the Kids" wraps up... but I think he'll make the time.
The writer of the "IT" remake speaks, and claims the picture is being written for a "Hard R". Sounds pretty awesome to me, although I'm not sure my brain is prepared for R-Rated scary clown action.
Google street-view car attacked! How much do you want to bet that these people "disappeared" soon after attacking the car... you don't mess with Mother Google, people, you just don't.
On this day in history:
1990: Police trace a series of obscene phone calls to the president's private White House telephone. The caller turns out to be the president of American University in Washington, Richard E. Berendzen, who was apparently hung up over some personal ad. He is later forced to resign his position but is never charged with any crime.
