The film adaptation of "Breaking Dawn," the fourth installment of the super-successful "Twilight" franchise, is surrounded with many unanswered questions. Let's break them down, shall we?
1) Will Summit Entertainment split the last film into two, ala "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows?" Studio's answer? Deny!
2) Will the film be in glorious 3-D? Twihards are divided in this question -- some want to see Edward's glistening face in three dimension, while others refuse to wear 3-D glasses! Studio's answer? Not sure!
The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Summit must make a decision by the end of the month in order to "meet production deadlines. Our bet is they decide to go whole hog, or wolf, as it were: two films, in 3D, with much to gain and little to lose."
I agree, unless author Stephenie Meyer decides to stop the "Twilight" train dead in its tracks. After all, she has the final word. Amen.

"In the Loop" is a political farce at its finest! It premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival, and since then, the film has been generating buzz specifically towards its script written by Jesse Armstrong, Simon Blackwell, Tony Roche, and Armando Iannucci. Yes folks, sometimes, multiple screenwriters can do magic to a film...sometimes...
The script has received nominations from BAFTA, the London critics, the Chicago critics, and now, the Oscars (check out full Oscar nominations right here). It has already won at the British Independent Film Awards and the New York Film Critics Circle.
IFC Films, the movie's distributor, has made the script available online so Academy voters can read it prior to the March 2nd deadline. Want to download the script? Click here right now.
And Ianucci, who also directed the film, wrote a special note just for you. Click here to read Ianucci's message.

Universal Pictures has hired screenwriters Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten "Kiwi" Smith to write a modern-day version of the 1982 musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas." Yeehaw or should I say Yee-ho?
As you may remember, the 1982 flick, based on the 1978 Broadway play, starred Burt Reynolds as a town sheriff who teamed up with a madame played by Dolly Parton to stop a TV personality from closing the local whorehouse, because, darn it, it's the best little whorehouse in Texas!
The new version will still be a musical, but it's unclear right now if it will have songs from the 1982 film.
This project may be promising, as Lutz and Smith have written comedies with strong female voice such as "Legally Blonde," "She's the Man," "The House Bunny," and "The Ugly Truth." And you know, if you're going to remake a film with a strong madame at the center, who better to call than Lutz and Smith?
But the big question? Who should play the madame part that Parton made so memorable? What about the Reynolds character? Ryan Reynolds perhaps?
For now, take a look at the trailer of the 1982 film, it may give you inspiration on casting roles.

I enjoyed "Valentine's Day," the film will put you in a good mood. But while I had fun watching the movie, I had a much better time interviewing the cast and director Garry Marshall. (Read my review of "Valentine's Day" right here)
So I'm sharing the fun I had with you, by posting my interviews with Jennifer Garner, Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway and Topher Grace, George Lopez, Shirley Maclaine and Hector Elizondo, and director Garry Marshall.
Garner was super sweet, Alba gave me love lessons, Hathaway and Grace were funny, Lopez gave me a rose, Maclaine and Elizondo were very witty, and Marshall was delightful!
"The last time you talked to me I was a chicken," Marshall said, referring to my last interview with him for the film "Chicken Little." Well I'm glad he's back on the director's chair because he truly can balance the romantic and the comedy.
