  • Warner Brothers is now developing a live-action/CGI hybrid Bugs Bunny movie. And in other news: Fuck you, WB. (Deadline)

  • So, they’re making a Terminator 3000 movie, a $70 million 3D-animated feature based on the characters and storyline of the franchise. And least it’s not another sequel? (Moviehole)

  • It’s been confirmed now that The Normal Heart a movie starring Mark Ruffalo about the early days of AIDS, will be directed by Ryan Murphy. That’s a shame, too. I like Ruffalo. It’s good subject material. And from what I’ve seen of him as a director, Ryan Murphy is not very good. I think he’s an ideas man, and not so good with the details. (MTV)

  • Here’s an interesting piece on Christopher Nolan, and how he’s not a genius as a director; he’s just a really good artist of plot. And as a plot guy, I think that’s what I find so compelling about him. (H/T Arib) (Slant)

  • If you’re curious, they’ve figured out where the breaking point between Deathly Hallows I and Deathly Hallows II will take place. It’s kind of spoilerish, so don’t click if you don’t want to know. (Filmonic)

  • Craig Clevenger, who wrote The Contortionist’s Handbook, which will be made into a film starring Channing Tatum, has seen the script. He’s pissed. He calls it a “Hollywood goatfuck.” I don’t think he’s going to be doing a lot of pre-release publicity for the flick. (FilmDrunk)

  • For those who have no intention of seeing The Other Guys (you should: It’s funny), you can still watch the spectacular closing credits, which provide a little “mini-seminar on the financial chicanery that’s fattened Wall Streeters’ and CEOs’ bonus checks in recent years while impoverishing the rest of us.” It also features a killer Rage Against the Machine tune. (Moviefone)

  • Ben Affleck has replaced Christian Bale on Terrence Malick’s next movie, Tree of Life. His co-star will be Rachel Weisz. (The Wrap)

  • For the curious, Paul Reubens breaks his silence about the masturbation incident, claiming it wasn’t him, and that … I love this … he was once trapped on a plane where they were showing his E! True Hollywood Story. Holy awkward. (Fox)

  • An in an unrelated story, the thing about Christina Hendricks is: She’s a helluva gorgeous woman on TV, but there’s rarely many good pictures of her online (I’ve been called out on several occasions for choosing bad pictures of her — there’s just not a huge selection folks, and I can’t help it if they all feature the boob-smush). That changes now that she will grace the cover of GQ magazine. Here’s a sample (H/T @scottweinberg). You’re welcome:


  • Jeffrey Dean Morgan — Javier Bardem’s doppelganger — is set to star in The Courier, an action film scripted by Derek Haas and Michael Brandt, about “a courier who has taken on improbable missions and never missed a drop.” (Deadline)

  • A final friendly reminder: As voted on by our readers, both “squee” and “teh” are no longer allowed in the comments section. I noticed a few comments with those in them in the junk filter here recently.
