Scar Jo and Jo Go in a film together? Now that's a lot of young and attractive Hollywood talent to consume. And consume is what they may do, as the pair are rumored to be "loosely attached" to the big screen edition of Breathers: A Zombie Lament, the Diablo Cody-produced, Geoff Latulippe (GOING THE DISTANCE) scripted adaptation of the S.G. Browne novel by the same name. Breathers centers around a man (presumably the role that could be filled by Gordon-Levitt) who dies only to find himself a reanimated corpse AKA zombie and the struggles that come along with being an undead rejected member of the society he once was a part of. Should the casting go as rumored, Johansson would play his love interest - a sexy suicide victim that he meets at a Undead Anonymous meeting. From there, the plot only gets more delectable.

Check out the official synopsis for the novel via Browne's website after the break! (more...)

One of the more underrated and under seen films of the past few years or so has been the wonderful, and haunting, French thriller, 13 TZAMETI.

The film has a plot best described as following a young man, who after taking over a dead man’s identity, is thrust into a world of an underground Russian-roulette club, where one must truly put his life on the line with luck being your only friend.

Well, thanks to writer/director Gela Babluani, who helmed this fantastic film, we will be getting an English language remake of the film, starring Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, 50 Cent, Ray Winstone and the always amazing Sam Riley.

Check out the trailer, after the jump.

As disappointing that it is that Joss Whedon won't be involved in Marvel's film adaptation of THE RUNWAYS, considering his run on the comic might be the best it's ever been. Regardless, it is still very exciting to see that the film is coming to fruition, as it is not one of Marvel's tent pole books. Things must be running smoothly behind the curtains, cause we now have a start date for filming. (more...)

After joining action films like FAST FIVE and FASTER, one could only think that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was ready to leave the world of family friendly kid features, which with the likes of THE TOOTH FAIRY and PLANET 51, became his home.

Well, apparently that’s not completely true.

According to THR, the actor is currently in talks to lead the upcoming film, JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH 2, replacing Brendan Fraser.  Apparently, Fraser had to drop due to “scheduling conflicts,” but with the first film’s director, Eric Brevig, being forced out by New Line, who wants this film out by 2011, it looks like Fraser decided not to return.  In Brevig’s place will be CATS AND DOGS: REVENGE OF KITTY GALORE helmer Brad Payton, so that should pretty much tell you what to expect.

Man, I love a good cat fight. Or in this case, a fight between a big, blue, cat-man, and a pissed off pirhanha.

For those of you who haven't already heard, earlier in the week comments from James Cameron, directed toward cast, crew, and project PIRANHA 3D, found their way to the bologsphere. When talking with Vanity Fair about the project, the magazine asked if the project held "any nostalgia" for him? In no uncertain terms, Cameron replied, 'none'. Read his full comments below...

Black Swan

Well, the Venice Film Festival is now officially underway, and along with the start of this year’s festival, that means that its opening film, Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN, has premiered, and boy has it hit hard.

Drawing comparisons to great films like the classic trio of Roman Polanski thrillers, THE TENANT, REPULSION (which may be the closest thing we have to it) and ROSEMARY’S BABY, and the greatest ballet film ever made, THE RED SHOES, we have our first reviews of the film, and while they aren’t all over the moon, the buzz is definitely at a fever pitch.

Check out the first slew of reviews, after the break.

The Wilderness Downtown

By now, I'm sure you've heard of THE WILDERNESS DOWNTOWN.  I haven't been able to avoid the status updates, tweets, emails, and random mentionings of the collaboration between the Arcade Fire, Google, and director Chris Milk.  It's everywhere and it has taken over the interwebs.  Before I lay me down to sleep, I'm determined to get to the bottom of this thing. I need to see for myself what all the fuss is about.  Could it really be all that I have heard that it is? That remains to be seen for me and if I take at least one person on this journey with me, than my job here is done my friends.

THE WILDERNESS DOWNTOWN is an interactive short film/music experience set to the Arcade Fire's song"We Used to Wait."  The experience is customized for the viewer.  Those unwilling to give details such as their childhood address will miss out, as with the assistance of Google Maps, the music video uses Google Maps and Google Street View to include images of the viewer's hometown into the video.  The experience also includes writing a letter to yourself which is also included into the experience.
