Director Steven Soderbergh and Brad Pitt are teaming up once again for "Moneyball." It's the adaptation of the Michael Lewis book "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game."
Apparently, Soderbergh has always wanted to make a sports film (the book is largely about baseball) and Pitt has been interested with the film adaptation, so the "Ocean" films brethren team up!
Steven Zaillian will write the script. But first, Soderbergh must finish making "Cleo," the musical about Cleopatra and Marc Anthony, the Roman General not the singer

Orbs, orbs, and more orbs! The upcoming film directed by "Final Destination's" James Wong, and starring Justin Chatwin as Goku will be released by 20th Century FOX on April 8.
The plot? Here's a summary from IMDB:
The story begins with Goku, who seeks out upon his adoptive grandfather Grandpa Gohan's dying request to find the great Master Roshi and gather all seven Dragon Balls. Of which he has one, in order to prevent the evil Lord Piccolo from succeeding in his desire to use the Dragon Balls to take over the world. And Goku's quest is to obtain the mystical Dragonballs before Piccolo does.
Now watch the magical trailer!

The glow surrounding "Green Lantern" is shining brightly!
Right now, Warner Bros. is in talks with Martin Campbell ("Casino Royale") to direct their DC Comics property.
Campbell is hot, hot, hot right now, and just recently wrapped "Edge of Darkness" based on the 1995 BBC miniseries. Mel Gibson stars in the film version.
With the future of another Batman flick in question (director Chris Nolan is mulling this one), and Superman and the Justice League, and yes, Wonder Woman projects stalled right now, the hot DC properties with Warner Bros. are Green Lantern and Jonah Hex.
"Jonah Hex" will star Josh Brolin, and will be directed by Jimmy Heyward, the guy who gave us "Horton Hears a Who."
The production on "Jonah" will begin shooting April.

This is a sweet news from our friends at Universal Pictures!
The studio is bringing "Candy Land" to the big screen, and "Enchanted" director, Kevin Lima, is set to helm.
As you may know, "Candy Land" is a board game made specially for little kids, and the planned film version is a result of the deal Universal made with Hasbro.
Hasbro's properties include the upcoming films, "G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra" and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen."
The script is being written Etan Cohen who gave us "Tropic Thunder."
This is an interesting and strong bunch of filmmakers, so "Candy Land" should have a good adaptation.
