  • Jennifer Aniston, who just can’t keep her goddamn hands away from all that is good and golden in this world, says that she’s talked to Jason Bateman about the possibility of having a role in the eventual, but probably never going to happen, Arrested Development movie. Well, that’s one way to dampen enthusiasm for our favorite pipe dream. (THR)

  • The Wachowski Brothers gay Iraq war romance has finally pinned down a title: Cobalt Neural 9. Nobody knows anything else about this movie. (Deadline)

  • Jane Lynch is set to host the October 9th edition of “Saturday Night Live,” in the vain hopes of staving off “Glee” fatigue a little longer. (New York Magazine)

  • Michael Goldenberg (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) has been hired to pen the second in what’s expected to be the Green Lantern trilogy. Note for all of you didn’t already know this: Green Lantern I hasn’t been released yet. Cart. Horse. Stubbed Penis. (Variety)

  • U.S. distribution rights to Jason Statham’s The Mechanic, a remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson flick, have been purchased by CBS films. (Deadline)

  • Jule Taymor is making a version of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, starring Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. Here’s the first image, which includes Brand and Alfred Molina, as well as another featuring Helen Mirren. (Collider)



  • Coolness: Bryan Crantson is joining the cast of Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, alongside Ryan Gosling. (FSR)

  • And finally, to leave you folks on a high note, TBS is nearing a deal to order 90 EPISODES of Ice Cube’s television show, “Are We There Yet?” based on his 2005 movie. In other news, laughter died today, August 9, 2010. R.I.P.
