  • Sometimes, the dry trade news write-ups supply the facts, and the dry facts are you need to know how unfuckingbelievably ridiculous a movie will be. This from Reuters:

    Harry Connick Jr., Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman are in negotiations to star in the inspirational 3D drama “A Dolphin’s Tale.” “Dolphin” is inspired by the true story of a dolphin named Winter who was rescued off the Florida coast and taken in by the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. Charles Martin Smith (Air Bud) will be directing the film from a script by Karen Janszen (A Walk to Remember).

    That is not, apparently, a logline FilmDrunk fabricated in order to create a Morgan Freeman/Free Willy photoshop mashup, but it works just as well. (FilmDrunk)

  • Channing Tatum will produce and star in Craig Clevenger’s debut novel The Contortionist’s Handbook . Tatum plays “a forger who moves smoothly from one identity to the next because of a strict code of conduct that keeps him from getting caught or having to deal with his own troubled past. That gets upended when he falls for a beautiful woman with her own dark secret. Robin Shushan wrote the script.” (Deadline)

  • The Urban Dictionary has come up with a new term for folks who don’t understand Inception: “Ineption.” Does that secretly apply to you, Case? (Via Slashfilm)

  • I swear to God, after I saw this image, I thought that “The Price Has Right,” had brought in Guy Smiley to host the game show. After four or five double takes, I finally realized who it was:



  • Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) will write an untitled romantic dramedy for DreamWorks about on-again/off-again love affairs and friendships among a close circle of friends over a period of 20 years. Thrilling. (The Wrap)

  • Here’s your first look at Kilowog, from The Green Lantern. And no: I have no fucking clue what a Kilowog is. You’ll have to take that up with The Green Lantern. Hopefully, he’ll be by soon to explain. (GammaSquad)


  • Netflix has reached an exclusive deal with Epix, allowing the company exclusive rights to carry movies from Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. The deal will allow you to watch movies like Iron Man and Saw online 90 days after their premium pay TV and on-demand debuts. (Reuters)

  • Finally, here’s the movie poster for RDJ’s and Zach Galifianakis’ Due Date.
