Thanks to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook, actors and creative types are free to spill the beans on projects that normally would be announced via the trades and press releases. Jay Baruchel just hopped aboard that bandwagon with a series of recent tweets revealing his plans for 'Goon 2,' a sequel (obviously) to this past winter's disarmingly funny and sweet hockey comedy starring Seann William Scott and co-writer Baruchel himself. So how much did the comedian give up?
The fallout from the 14-minute 'Innocence of Muslims' YouTube clip, which is being blamed for a slew of riots, continues to grow in the Middle East. Despite the country's attempts to calm things down with a 'Day of Love for the Prophet Mohammed,' protesters in Pakistan have set fire to two different movie theaters.
Not even US government-backed commercials airing in Pakistan, that condemn 'Innocence of Muslims,' have been able to quiet the storm; protesters flooded the city of Peshawar, clashed with teargas-heaving police and torched the two cinemas.
Fandango today announced the availability of its popular Mobile Ticket in Apple's Passbook App, which is part of Apple's updated iOS 6 operating system. This is certainly the beginning of the end for ticket stub collectors.
Garry Marshall's 1894 comedy-drama 'The Flamingo Kid' will be our next item on “What's Being Remade Now?” The film, which established Matt Dillon as a leading man in the early part of the decade, has been acquired by Walt Disney Pictures, which in turn has set Brett Ratner to produce via his Rat Entertainment company.
James Bond is back to show everybody how it's done this November in Sam Mendes' 'Skyfall,' which continues to look like the action movie -- or just plain movie -- of the year in this new international spot. Get shaken and stirred by it after the break.
It's no secret that 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' is in pre-production; an official announcement was issued for the follow-up back in April, while more recently we caught a glimpse of a pistol-packing Jessica Alba preparing to reprise her role as "Nancy" in the Robert Rodriguez film. Now we know when the film is scheduled to get underway, thanks to another beauty venturing back to 'Sin City,' Rosario Dawson.
