Good casting on Pierce for Iron Man 3. Also, my nerd boner rages for The Avengers.

The Need for Speed movie has been done like 5 or 6 times under the name Too Fast. Amirite?

I'm excited for Jeremy Renner for the new Bourne movie. Loved him in The Hurt Locker. As per the Hollywood norm, I think they will make a sequel to the one that is coming out this fall, and then possibly a 3rd to make a trilogy, and then Matt Damon and Renner will both be in, technically the 7th Bourne movie.

On a side note, The Raid was freaking awesome. Don't worry about the subtitles, there wasn't that much dialogue.

Really excited about the new Silent Hill. Also, John Hawkes, one does not simply turn down the role of the governor.

I'm excited about P.T. Anderson's next film. Anyone listen to the Nerdist podcast episode with Tenacious D? Jack Black described an awkward encounter with Tom Cruise, where Black praised his performance in "Magnolia" but Cruise kinda blew him off. Black later realized that it was because of the news that Anderson was going to make a film that mirrored/criticized Scientology.
