That We Bought a Zoo poster sort of reminds me of those horrible minimalist movie posters that have been going around the blogosphere. God, I hope they don't start to influence real movie art.

Bummed that Ratner is out as producer. What he said was foolish and all, but my God, he was making the Oscars sound promising as a ceremony for the first time in years. Dude brought in Eddie Murphy, only planned to let people present that he actually thought could nail the material written and planned to cut out a lot of the fat of the ceremony without losing the essentials. Not to mention that the firing was pretty much done at the call of GLAAD, one of the many organizations that should be listed as a gang in this country based on it's mob-like intimidation tactics.

Jonah's gonna severely regret missing out on this one. Quentin Tarantino's second decade was most interesting, and based on the script for Django Unchained, his third will be even more so. Basterds has already become iconic, and this one will follow the lead. It's out-and-out exploitation and would fit in nicely between Basterds and another period piece as an unofficial exploitation period trilogy.

There's NO better choice than Colin Firth for that role. This remake has justified itself so fucking much in the last three months between the hiring of Spike Lee, Josh Brolin and now this if it happens. Let there be a God!

The link that says "Crystal to host" leads to the same place as "Grazer to produce" and does not reveal that Crystal will host.

Very cool on the Toy Story short, wasn't aware it was in production.

I agree with this as much as I enjoy some of the minimalist poster art.

As much as I'm not fond of Jonah Hill (he seems strongly typecasted), it's a shame he had to pass up Tarantino.

I hope Colin Firth understands what happens in Oldboy, strange but decent original.
