Actress Regina King will produce and star in a remake of the 1983 film "The Big Chill." The original starred Glenn Close, William Hurt, Meg Tilly, Jeff Goldblum and Kevin Kline as college friends that reunite for the funeral of a friend.
Regina will produce along with her sister, Reina King. You mean her sister has her same name without the g?! WTF?!
The updated version will get a name change and consist of an all African-American cast.
File this under: Unnecessary.

Here we go! Hollywood has picked another cartoon classic out of the pile and this time it's Thundercats! Screenwriter Paul Sopocy has been hired to turn the 80s cartoon into a live-action, big-budget feature film for Warner Bros.
Thundercats is about these cat-human-things that leave their home of Thundera after it's destroyed. Once crash-landing on another planet, Third Earth, they must thwart Mumm-Ra, an evil sorcerer, bent on killing them off. GAY!
Paul's script focuses on Lion-O coming of age as the main bitch of the Thundercats.
First He-Man and now this. I am honestly still waiting for them to turn my favorite 80s cartoon "Beverly Hills Teens" into a feature film. That cartoon was a hidden gem and seriously needs to be resurrected from the cartoon grave.
Back to Thundercats! You know who I think would be smashing in the lead? Making her film debut....Rumer Willis !!!

Diane English of "Murphy Brown" fame has been working on a revised version of the classic George Cukor film "The Women" for a while now. The remake has been in the works for around 10 years. Well, the cast is set and a shooting date has been sealed in concrete.
Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett Smith, Debra Messing and Candace Bergen will play roles made famous by Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell.
The story follows a group of female friends when the one they envied most discovers her husband's cheating on her. Diane's script is said to maintain most of the story elements, but the characters aren't nearly as catty and bitchy as they were in the original. WHAT?! That was the whole point!
Meg Ryan and Debra Messing in a movie TOGETHER?! Kill me now.

Terminator 4 is going on without Arnold Schwarzenegger. Swedish underwear model Marcus Schenkenberg said on a Dutch talk show that while he was in Cannes he landed 4 movie roles including the new Terminator movie.
Marcus also said that Arnold would have a short cameo in the new movie.
Shooting is expected to begin later this year for a 2009 release. Edward Furlong is in talks to reprise his role.
Marcus Schenkenberg?! Oh hell no! He's like an Arnold clone almost! Hollywood really sucks at making movies. Jessica Biel should be the name Terminator! She could even wear Arnold's old costume.
That being said I will only approve of this is Marcus plays the whole role nekkid.

A Hollywood bidding war is going down right now for the feature film rights to a new, controversial book about the life and death of Princess Diana. The movie will mainly focus on Diana's struggle with the paparazzi. Even though the rights have not been snatched up sources say that Keira Knightley's skinny ass is already being named to play the Princess.
A source said, “Already the word in Hollywood is ‘get Knightley!’ It’s a story that has everything; pathos, tragedy, comedy, adventure . . . and Princess Diana."
They believe that because of the massive success of "The Queen" that this movie will make even more money.
I'm actually, strangely into the idea of a movie about Diana if its done well and with elegance. Hah. However, Keira can't act worth shit! At least get a broad who can portray different emotions and not just be the "innocent ingenue." Keira can play Prince William.

When it was announced that Cate Blanchett would be in Indiana Jones 4, it was expected that she would play his love interest. Cate will instead play a Russian villian in cahoots with the Ruskies. The working title is "Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods." The film will take place in the 50s. Shooting begins in New Haven, CT very soon.
Finally a hot villian bitch! I think Cate is the right person to play it. I just hope they slather her in hot costumes and lay it on thick with the accent. Actually, they really should've cast Natasha from "America's Next Top Model." That bitch needs a big break.

20th Century Fox has purchased the rights to a live-action version film of the mega-popular computer game "The Sims." The computer game is the best-selling of all time with a whopping $1.6 billion in sales worldwide.
Fox says it will be live-action.
The Sims is a simulated computer game where players determine the careers, love lives, family lives and even personality of the characters in the game.
The creators won't have a hard time finding actors for this crap. Most actors in Hollyweird have no emotion and are basic robots. I hope The Sims movie turns out as well as Super Mario Bros. the Movie.

Executive Producer Michael King will direct the "Sex and the City" feature film. Michael wrote, produced and directed several episodes of the HBO series. There has been a lot of rumors about the future of the project, but with a director hired it's getting one step closer to becoming reality.
Shooting is expected to begin as early as this Fall. Mario Cantone who was a series regular said nobody is signed on to the film yet.
He said, "They called me about my availability, but nothing’s negotiated. Hopefully if all the negotiations go well, it will happen in the fall."
Kim Cattrall was said to be hesitant about doing a movie, but since her career is in the toilet now I'm sure she wants that paycheck. Aren't these broads too old for this crap! Does it take place a damn retirement home?
Sex and the Geritol!

Sources close to the production of Indiana Jones 4 say that Karen Allen will be back as Indy's greatest girlfriend, Marion Ravenwood. Marion will be the mother of Shia LaBeouf's character who is going to be a greaser-type. Rumor is that Indy will turn out to be his father.
Karen will join Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett and Sean Connery.
Now if they can just get Kate Capshaw to come back and recreate that hot number she did at the beginning of Temple of Doom!

That hunk of man, Robert Rodriguez, has signed to direct a remake of the cult-classic Barbarella. The original version starred Jane Fonda as a hot space chick battling alien hos and shit. The screenwriters of "Casino Royale" are currently updating the script.
Robert said, "I love this iconic character and all that she represents, and I'm truly excited by the challenge of inviting a new audience into her universe."
Rob is currently banging Rose McGowan who he left his wife for. He better not pull a Tim Burton and put that cokehead in it! Bitch can't act and she needs medical attention STAT, because her face is falling off.
There are only 3 women qualified to play this iconic character: CoCo, Jordan or Jodie Marsh. If he casts one of those he will be guaranteed an Oscar nomination or is it he will be guaranteed a blow job? Not sure.
