Another day, another movie musical! This time, it's the Patrick Swayze-Demi Moore tearjerker, "Ghost."
Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Glen Ballard, Alanis Morissette's producer muse for "Jagged Little Pill" will write the music and lyrics.
Bruce Joel Rubin, the screenwriter of the original film, will adapt the musical. Matthew Warchus will direct.
The play will debut on West End in 2010.
No word yet on the cast, or if the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" will be used. But the producers better use the tune because it plays a big part in the film, it's almost like one of the characters.
And to put you in the right "Ghost" mood, here's a clip of the pottery-making scene in the film, to the tune of, yes, "Unchained Melody."

The bottomline? I enjoyed the film even though it's a bit long (161 minutes) and violent (Rated R). But as a fan of the comic book, I'm glad director Zack Snyder and company adhered to the tone of the original Alan Moore classic!

No, we're not talking about "New Moon" yet, but we'll get to that later. First, Dakota Fanning is in negotiations to star in the movie "The Runaways." She'll play Cheri Currie, the lead singer of the 70s all-girl band also called The Runaways.
As we told you last December, "Twilight's" Kristen Stewart was hired to play Joan Jett in the film. Shooting is set to start in late spring.
Now, here's the crux. Both actresses are going to be busy working in..."New Moon" the "Twilight" sequel!
If we're going to believe the Daily Variety, the article says, Fanning "is also booked to play a vampire in the "Twilight" sequel "New Moon."
If that's true, then Stewart and Fanning will be the busiest actresses this year, finishing "New Moon," then "The Runaways," then back to "Twilight" paradise with the third installment, "Eclipse."

Last summer, Angelina Jolie replaced Tom Cruise in the film "Edwin A. Salt." Well, the movie will sound ridiculous with a title "Edwina Salt" so, it's now trimmed to a more inspiring "Salt."
And according to the LA Times, Jolie begins work today on the film, "a spy thriller about a rogue CIA operative who tries to clear her name after she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent — perhaps falsely, perhaps not."
If you think it sounds very Jason Bourne-ish, you are not alone!
But Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura says, "Salt is different because the character is trying to hide truths about herself rather than discover them. "The question of Jason Bourne is 'Who am I?' "
"The question of Salt is, 'We know everything about her, but do we?' (Her pursuers) have a ton of information to act on, but that's where they begin to question what is real and what isn't."
Salt shoots in Washington and New York City. It opens in 2010. To read the complete article, please click here.
