Who will get this golden trophy?
Well, we just have to find out somehow, because the WGA has recently called off the Feb. 9 awards show in Los Angeles — unless it has ended its strike by then.
But before canceling the awards, the WGA announced the nominations!
So who are the best and brightest writers working in the film industry right now? Read More...

Teen Hollywood is reporting that pop superstar Justin Timberlake is set to take his relationship with actress Jessica Biel to the big screen. The couple are currently looking for a movie project to work on together and are trying to agree on a suitable genre.
Apparently, Justin wants to do a comedy, while Jessica wants something grittier (she rocks in "The Illusionist").
Hhhhmmmmmm, let's see, they should do a dark comedy!
Meanwhile, Miss Biel, who wants darker roles, is set to do a romantic comedy! What?
But hold on folks, it's a film based on the Noel Coward play called "Easy Virtue." Biel will play an American divorcee, Larita Huntington, who travels to the South of France and marries a young wealthy Englishman John Whittaker, to be played by Ben Barnes, on the spur of the moment.
The couple return to England to face his unapproving family, including his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Whittaker, played by Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas.
Like "Meet the Whittakers!"
But I'm sure Australian director Stephan Elliott, the guy who gave us "Priscilla Queen of the Desert" will put his original spin!

According to Eonline, Ashley Tisdale (and her new nose) will make her feature film debut in the adventure comedy "They Came from Upstairs," about a group of teens who protect their Maine home against an alien invasion.
It's like "Signs" for the tween crowd!
Production is due to begin at the end of the month in New Zealand.

Lionsgate films, purveyor of pop-culture junk food! First, they're releasing "Rambo" on Jan. 25th. Now, talks are being made that "Conan the Barbarian" will return to the big screen!
Listen, I love "Conan" as much as you do, but this new film version will not star the famous celeb-Governor from California!
As you may totally recall, the original 80s film launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. But now, owners of the Robert E. Howard created character are treading carefully. Why not? There are profits from comic books, video games (Xbox 360), and online role-playing games at stake!
Here are some fun facts:
* The film will be written by Thomas Dean Donnely and Joshua Oppenheimer (the guys who gave us the equally junkie "Sahara")
* Production is set to begin later this year DEPENDING on the Writers strike!
WHERE'S RED SONJA WHEN YOU NEED HER?

Can you imagine this pretty lady joining a freak show?
Well Miss Salma is going to be a freak -- A BEARDED LADY!!!!
She just signed on to star opposite John C. Reilly in the horror drama "Cirque du Freak" from Universal Pictures. This is her first film since giving birth.
The actress has signed on to star opposite John C. Reilly in Universal Pictures’ horror drama “Cirque du Freak,” which will mark her first acting role since her maternity leave.
Paul Weitz will be directing, and the production is set to begin next month.
Based on the bestselling children's series by Darren Shan, Reilly will play a vampire who drafts a 14-year-old to serve as his assistant. The youth is turned into a half-vampire and becomes the catalyst in a battle between vampires and the rival Vampanese.
Hayek will play Madame Truska, yes, the bearded lady.
