Thanks a Lot, D*ckweed. Depressed Over Script Leak, Tarantino Shelves His Next Film

By Cindy Davis | Pajiba Love | January 22, 2014 | Comments ()


Dammit, dammit, dammit. Apparently Elementary creator Robert Doherty feels the need to test my Sherlock loyalty by bringing on Idris Elba and Alan Rickman in some future episode. Oh, Cumberbatch…I promise I’ll always stay true to your wiggly-toed creature. (Digital Spy)

Guess who else wants in on Sherlock Holmes? Sir Ian McKellen—and I dare anyone to stand in the way. He’ll play the detective at age 90 in Bill Condon’s (Gods and Monsters, Chicago, The Fifth Estate) adaptation of A Slight Trick of the Mind. (Ian McKellen)

Actual Sir Ian Arse:


Prince Harry likes to build “castellated” latrines, tell rude jokes and drink champagne from prosthetic legs…at least if you believe everything The Wire’s Dominic West says (and you know how that goes). (Dlisted)

Who fans, next time you host family game night, instead of Cards Against Humanity, you can whip out Cards Against Gallifrey…that is if you really want to think about Tom Baker (who just turned 80) in only a scarf. (io9)

Speaking of…today we wish a Happy Birthday to the War Doctor himself—John Hurt. Happy 74th! (DListed)

Game of Thrones’ Kit Harrington stars in Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming Pompeii, so he did a little Vanity Fair photo shoot. But is it cheesy or hot? (Hint: total Limburger). (Celebitchy)


Here we are sitting around—still waiting for those cool Fifth Element flying cars, and Bruce Willis is on to his next futuristic thriller, Vice. Described as “Westworld-meets-Grand Theft Auto, Willis will play a fantasy resort owner who employs synthetic beings to satisfy wealthy patrons’ every desire; as any Yul Brynner fan knows, you can’t keep a good gunslinger down. (Hollywood Reporter)

Arnold is having a nice little resurgence this week. The Governator followed up his Reddit AMA with an undercover visit to Gold’s Gym. (via Uproxx)

Uh, you people in the snowy places—be careful! And if you build a fort, make sure your kid knows how to dial 911. (Neatorama)

What? You haven’t seen Top Secret? But…hot Val singing and dancing! Kick yourself and go watch it right now. (Unreality)

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight—which might have starred Christoph Waltz, Bruce Dern, Michael Madsen and Tim Roth—is a wrap. The director is “very, very depressed” after he gave out the script to only “six motherfucking people” (three of whom were Dern, Madsen and Roth), and it was almost immediately leaked. Suspecting one of the actors’ agents, Tarantino says he’s considering publishing the work, but will not make the film next. Thanks a lot, you dickheads; how long am I going to have to wait to hear Waltz making music with great dialogue now? (Deadline)

Dustin wonders Which Of These 5 Women Should Play The ‘Highly Sexual’ Lead In Amazon’s TV Remake Of ‘Barbarella’? (Warming Glow)

Loosely based on Pellegrino Turri’s invention of the typewriter, The Blind Contessa’s New Machine by Carey Wallace doesn’t quite live up to its premise. Sara_Tonin00 checks out this work of historical fiction for us, and deemed it "misty and poetic" but lacking substance. Oh well, cross that one off the list! (Cannonball Read)
