  • Ice Cube and David O. Russell (Three Kings) have re-teamed up for a franchise about a trigger-happy plainclothes detective in what is being described as a throwback to those 70’s Dirty-Harry revenge flicks. There is not yet a script, and given how many projects David O. Russell attaches himself to, I’m given this one about a 22 percent change of reaching the big screen. (Deadline)

  • It looks like Marc Webb’s Spider-man reboot has its Uncle Ben and Aunt May, as it was reported last evening that Martin Sheen and Sally Field are negotiating for the roles. They will join Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone, who will play Gwen Stacy, while Rhys Ifans will play The Lizard. Word is, there will be no Mary Jane in the reboot. (THR)

  • Aaron Eckhart will play an ex-CIA agent who leaves the spy game to rebuild a relationship with his 15-year-old daughter in the Philipp Stolzl directed The Expatriate. His character takes a job as a security expert at a corporation only to find out the whole place is a front in order to kill him. (Deadline)

  • Apparently, the Christmas episode of “Glee” this year will be Grinch-themed, and will feature Sue Sylvester as the Grinch. It will revolve around the coach’s attempts to sabotage the holidays at McKinley High. (Movieline)
