6. A clip from the Muppets Movie.

7. Tarsem Singh’s Snow White movie will be titled Mirror Mirror.
Quote:
an exiled princess who enlists the help of seven resourceful rebels to win back her birthright and Oscar-winner Julia Roberts as an evil Queen who steals control of a kingdom, in a magical adventure comedy

8. The rights for Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego has been bought and the studio is adapting it as a vehicle to star J-Lo. (in other words taking the idea and placing it in the garbage)

9. Warner Bros picked up Spectral. In Spectral, a special ops force - trained in hunting the supernatural - go up against ghosts that have taken over Manhattan.


10. Peter Jackson shares a video showing off how they perform 3D and what he believes it will add from the set.

11. Simon Kinberg (X-Men Last Stand, Jumper, Mr and Mrs Smith) is being brought for the sequel to X-Men First Class. (xmen 3 was horrendous which makes this news especially bad)

12. Andy Serkis will return in Rise of the Planet of the Apes sequel.

13. RZA is the latest to join Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

14. Clash of the Titans 2 comes out in march. So naturally the studio is now moving forward with Clash of the Titans 3.

15. Joel Edgerton looks to be the next cast member to join 300: Battle of Artemisia.

17. Steve Buscemi has been offered a role in Burt Wonderstone which will also star Steve Carell and Jim Carrey.
The script, by Jonathan Goldstein ("The New Adventures of Old Christine," "Bones") and John Francis Daley (who acted in "Freaks and Geeks") deals with rival stage magician teams in Las Vegas. The lead character, the titular Wonderstone (Steve Carell), is one half of a two-man group who has to rediscover his love of magic after the loss of his partner. Buscemi would play that partner, Anton, who decides to hang up his act and move away, just as a rival street magician (Jim Carrey) starts to steal Wonderstone's spotlight.

18. Did you watch or like Cabin Fever? Well 2 more movies will be made from that.

19. Michael Shannon talks about the General Zod costume.

20. Travolta and DeNiro will star in Killing Season.

21. Mickey Rourke talks about his thoughts on approaching Sin City 2.

22. Fraggle Rock has found some new owners in New Regency. They haven’t said what they will do with it except that it will be a feature film and they are considering CGI since it “worked” for Alvin and the Chipmunks. (again another studio buying a film and throwing it directly into the crapper)

23. James Mangold talks a bit about The Wolverine (wolverine sequel).

24. Sly Stallone will star in The Tomb about a prison designer who has to escape from the prison he built.

25. David Katzenburg and Seth Grahame-Smith are moving forward with a Beetlejuice sequel. They have the blessing of Tim Burton and now their only other requirement to fully move forward is they want Michael Keaton to reprise his role. Not a cameo but a true 26 years later sequel.

26. Amanda Seyfried will play Linda Lovelace. Yeah, there’s been a number of castings and actually there are 2 films about her.

27. Akira casting rumors are going crazy.

Television

1. John Goodman to rejoin the Coen brothers in Inside Llewyn Davis.
He's so underrated, I hope the movie turns out to be good enough to get him at least an Oscar nom.

5. Benicio Del Toro is expected to be the villain in the next Star Trek.
Pretty awesome.

8. The rights for Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego has been bought and the studio is adapting it as a vehicle to star J-Lo. (in other words taking the idea and placing it in the garbage)
Ughhhhhhhhhh

11. Simon Kinberg (X-Men Last Stand, Jumper, Mr and Mrs Smith) is being brought for the sequel to X-Men First Class. (xmen 3 was horrendous which makes this news especially bad)
X3 was TERRIBLE.

17. Steve Buscemi has been offered a role in Burt Wonderstone which will also star Steve Carell and Jim Carrey.
Daley is quite the writer, I'm so happy for him.

22. Fraggle Rock has found some new owners in New Regency. They haven’t said what they will do with it except that it will be a feature film and they are considering CGI since it “worked” for Alvin and the Chipmunks. (again another studio buying a film and throwing it directly into the crapper)
You have no idea how freaking glad I am The Muppets haven't gone CGI.

25. David Katzenburg and Seth Grahame-Smith are moving forward with a Beetlejuice sequel. They have the blessing of Tim Burton and now their only other requirement to fully move forward is they want Michael Keaton to reprise his role. Not a cameo but a true 26 years later sequel.
This could work. Especially since Michael Keaton pretty much looks exactly the same.

4. In Living Color returns to Fox Spring 2012.
I can't see how this will work.

For people worried about Simon writing the X Men First Class sequel, it was Zac Penn that really ruined the script from what I read. I'm bummed like hell but I'm hoping it turns out amazing and that Vaughn returns. If they have another director like Ratner take this on, I'll loose my mind.

Missed the X-Men news on my first scan through. That fucking bums me out, considering First Class is my third favorite this year.
