"XXX" Vin Diesel's Return Gets Writers 


As we reported back in September, Vin Diesel is set to return in "XXX: The Return of Xander Cage."

Now, Variety is reporting that "Terminator: Salvation" writers Michael Ferris and John Brancato are in talks to write a script that will reunite Vin Diesel with director Rob Cohen.

Apparently, the pair of scribes pitched their idea for a new installment last Friday to Columbia Pictures presidents Matt Tolmach and Doug Belgrad.

But before becoming Xander Cage, Diesel will first be seen as Dominic Toretto in the fourth installment of "Fast and Furious" to be released June 12 by Universal Pictures.

No word yet if Diesel is going to don the babysitter outfit of Shane Wolfe for "The Pacifier" sequel :wink

The Latest, I Swear, About "Australia" 


Okay, just literally hours before the Nov. 18 world premiere of "Australia," no one has actually seen the final cut! Oh sure, Oprah viewers saw a rough cut of the movie back in June.

But, Baz is known for meticulously tweaking his project right down to the wire!

And oftentimes, he's heard talking about all the dramas he had to go through to making the movie.

I'm beginning to think Mister Baz is a Drama Queen!



First we talked about the unhappy fans about Baz's "Australia" happy ending.

Then, Baz was heard answering all these rumors.

Now, two days before the premiere, we're starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So what do Oprah and her followers think of the film?

Variety reported that:

Oprah and her audience certainly went gaga.

"It's the best movie I've seen in a long, long time," Winfrey gushed on the Nov. 10 show. "They just don't make movies like that anymore. ... It is epic, it is majestic, it is romantic, it is a spectacle. The scenery is so gorgeous. It's everything a great movie should be."


As for the controversial ending? Did you know Baz wrote six endings for the movie?

Luhrmann wrote six endings, shot three, and tested three different versions of the film. Someone does die at the end of the pic, but Luhrmann found an ending with hope.


Baz folks were heard saying it's not a simplistic ending, but an utterly satisfying one.

We'll see about that! :tongue
