Akira To Be Rewritten By Harry Potter Scribe

The live-action adaptation of Akira apparently still has signs of life. Warner Bros has hired Steve Kloves, the screenwriter behind seven of the eight Harry Potter films to rewrite the script for director Albert Hughes' take on the seminal manga series and anime film. Not much was revealed as to what happened with the last version of the script, which itself was rewritten by newcomer Albert Torres from previous drafts. However, clearly something was not clicking and Warner bringing in a big gun like Kloves is a clear sign that they want this stalled production to get its act together and get moving. A testament to its inertia, the rights to Akira were actually acquired three years ago in a cross-company venture with Warner that included, among others, Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way. While news on the production has been rather bare since last Fall, it's pretty clear that the enduring issue of the script is the cause of the delay. What will be fixed, then?

Alice Eve In League For Men In Black III

Already long in production, it has been revealed that Men in Black III will now be joined by Alice Eve. While reports of minor delays to the film, due to script issues may have worried fans, the casting process seems to be chugging along just fine, as evidenced by this acquisition. After a breakthrough starring role in last year's She's Out of My League, the voluptuous English beauty, Eve has been a highly sought-after property, rumored for comic book movie roles and having plenty of big films locked-up for 2011. However, her role in the upcoming, nearly decade-in-the-making third Men in Black film will have her taking on a much different kind of role: Leader of the MIB operation. -- Well, sort of.

More Terminator Films In The Works? Could Arnold Be On Board?

Apparently the Terminator film franchise may be crawling back out of the fiery wreckage of a crashed gas truck that was its last film. According to Deadline, Universal Studio is looking to pick-up the film series, giving it to their newest prodigy in Fast Five director Justin Lin. The Taiwanese director, whose credits range from helming the last two sequels in the Fast and the Furious series (with the upcoming Fast Five being the latest), helping James Franco do his best Richard Gere impression in Annapolis, to directing episodes of NBC's Community. With somewhat of a diverse resume, it will be interesting to see what Lin could bring to the franchise. However, the immediate question is whether his contribution will come in the form of a sequel or outright reboot. Yet, a possible clue to that question may lie within the catalyst for all this Terminator talk. As some may know, after finishing his tenure as "Caleefo-neeya" Chief Executive, Arnold Schwarzenegger has expressed his desire to return to acting. It seems that one revelatory tweet from the "Ex-Governator" was all that was needed to get the ball rolling on the stalled franchise.

300 Prequel Xerxes To Be Directed By Guy Ritchie?

The long-planned prequel to Zack Snyder's 300, known as Xerxes may have to part with its predecessor film's director. According to New York Magazine's Vulture, the director may have his hands much too full and will have to step down from the project, ceding the directorial offer to apparent front-runner, Sherlock Holmes helmer, Guy Ritchie. *(See Updated Info Below.) The director is currently working on the Holmes sequel, which has just been revealed to be titled Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. With an in-development remake of Excalibur being the only non-Holmes project on Ritchie's plate, apparently, Warner Bros. felt he would be the right man to tackle the adaptation of Frank Miller's follow-up graphic novel to the original 300, which chronicles the rise to power of the vain, bling-obsessed Persian overlord with a not-so-slight God complex. (Played by Rodrigo Santoro in 300.) So how did this apparent turn of events occur?

The Hobbit Cast Assembles!

Posted February 11, 2011 - By Joseph Baxter

The Hobbit Cast Assembles!

The first image of The Hobbit cast has finally surfaced. Yesterday's launch celebration of the two-part epic at the beleaguered production's home in Wellington, New Zealand gave us the first public get-together of the cast, along with a Q&A session with the press. On the heels of the March 21 date to begin shooting, it was clear that nothing is standing in the way of this production any longer. While the press conference didn't yield any notable juicy details about the film, the almost surreal imagery of this newly-assembled cast getting ready to make a movie that the forces of fate seemingly tried to stop many times, was enough induce a smile out of any self-respecting fan.

On an average day, nobody likes watching the commercials for a television program. On Super Bowl Sunday, the commercials are the best part. With the big game just around the corner, we’ve decided to take a look back at the greatest commercials in Super Bowl history.

1. Apple (1984)

Apple’s 1984 ad from, you guessed it, 1984 is probably the most recognized Super Bowl ad of all time. It’s clever, intense, and most importantly, original. No sexual innuendo, no over-hyped shock value. It blurs the heavy line between product advertisements and pure entertainment and for that one minute, you forget you’re watching a commercial. Plus, being an Apple commercial, it is totally ironic and hipster. A commercial about not following the crowd, being an individual, and buying an Apple product. LOLZ. Love it.

Danica Patrick and 2011 GoDaddy Super Bowl Ad: Edgy or Annoying?

Danica Patrick and Jillian Michaels return to the 2011 GoDaddy Super Bowl Ad campaign.  And the preview is exactly what you’d expect:  Danica and Jillian get semi-naked to perform “some crazy stunt” that they’re “obligated” to perform.  Super edgy stuff.  It was especially edgy when GoDaddy did it in 2007.  And then even edgier when it was done in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Innovative, creative, and empowering. No, really.
