  • Funny-ass hottie, Krisin Wiig — who has to be nearing the end of her run on “SNL” — has optioned Clown Girl, about a girl named Sniffles the Clown who tries to resist the lucrative clown-fetishist prostitution trade.The money quote from the book description: “Welcome to wacky, stressful Baloneytown, where clown prostitution, stoned dogs and fire juggling-cum-arson are the norm.” And yes: She plans to write and star. Prepare your bunks. (Deadline)

  • A long in-development Planet of the Apes prequel — a present day origins story — is apparently official enough now to have a release date. That date is June 24, 2011. The Escapist’s Rupert Wyatt will direct from a screenplay by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa.

  • Meanwhile, Mission Impossible IV has been pushed back from May 2011 to December 2011. The May slot, presumes Slashfilm, has now been occupied by J.J. Abrams’ Super 8. (Slashfilm)

  • The inordinately adorable Alison Brie, from “Community” and “Mad Men,” apparently used to and possibly still does love to fuck. Men, women, gays. With or without intoxicants. Just FYI. (Nerve)

  • Remember the Alex O’Laughlin CBS vampire drama, “Moonlight”? Weirdly, the CW has picked up the reruns of that show to air as a companion to its own “The Vampire Chronicles.” (EW)

  • Dwayne Johnson has joined the cast of Fast 5 (the Fast & Furious sequel). He’ll be the lead FBI dude in pursuit of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. (Deadline)
