Horror Headlines: Tuesday February 9th, 2010

Director Stephen Soderberg has fast tracked his next project, the outbreak action-thriller "Contagion". Joining him will be Matt Damon, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard. So far, the origin of the outbreak is unknown but investigation shows it is narrowed down to either a viral situation or runaway actor egos.

Normally I don't like to fuel crazy rumors, but this one is too good to pass up. The story that Universal is a planning a possible "Jaws" remake has been around for awhile. Think a reboot is bad enough? How about a reboot starring Tracy Morgan in the place of Matt Hooper?

In other star packed ego news, Rachel Weisz will star along side Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts in the haunted house thriller "Dream House". Reportedly, Weisz will be filling the lead role originally given to Watts.

"Paranormal Activity" continues to make waves as it scares the vino out of Italy. The country's emergency response service has been flooded with calls from teenagers and youth suffering from panic attacks after viewing the commercials. So far, the government has yet to ban the film.

Draco Malfoy has joined the cast of "The Apparition", a story about a couple haunted after a college experiment. So far, it would appear that Tom Feldon is going to be cast as the film's 'star power'.

In Real People News: 

A man was found to have attempted a free trip to Tokyo by stowing away in a planes landing gear. Unfortunately for him, he didn't think his plan through. His body was found frozen in the plane's landing gear bay, dressed only in blue jeans and a long sleeve shirt.

After a recent tally, cows now officially outnumber people in New Zealand. We're safe for the moment... at least until they team up with the sheep.

On this day in history: 

1989 - Officials for the World Wrestling Federation testify before the New Jersey Senate that their matches are actually rigged.

Not Your Mother's "Sherlock Holmes" (Trailer)

Not being of the literary sort, my response to anything involving "Sherlock Holmes" usually begins with a yawn and ends with a nap. For that reason, I was totally disinterested in the upcoming film adaptation of the popular series. That is, of course, until I found out that it starred the man-crush power couple of Robert Downey Jr. (Holmes) and Jude Law (Watson). After that, I caught up on an apparently old story about Robert Maillet accidentally punching RDJ in the face during a fight scene.
