Ryan Reynolds will have his own "X-Men" film with "Deadpool." Twentieth Century Fox has begun developing the project with the actor in mind. Reynolds played the character in the recent "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."
Variety is saying:
The character is one of the most popular in Marvel Comics' X-Men universe. Deadpool is Wade Wilson, a mercenary who, dying of cancer, submits himself to the Weapon X genetic alteration experiment and emerges as an indestructible semi-sane anti-hero. Reynolds seemed destined to play the character. In one reference in the Marvel Comics, Deadpool is described as a mix between "a Shar Pei and Ryan Reynolds."
Wow, the actor is referenced in the comic book! Cool!
Oh, did you know that in one of the "Easter egg" endings of "Wolverine," Deadpool is seen rising from the rubble and whispering "Shhh" to audiences?
HA! Fox already had this spin-off planned way in advanced
In more "Wolverine" news, Fox is also developing a sequel, and if you guys stayed through the credits of the film, you would have seen Wolverine sitting in a bar in Japan. Why does that matter? Because the sequel will talk about a samurai storyline for our favorite man-beast-adamantium formed super-hero!
And then, of course, we have "Magneto" soon to come, and "X-Men: First Class" as well.

In the “Star Trek” universe, “The Undiscovered Country” to be exact, Spock (Leonard Nimoy) once asked Capt. Kirk (William Shatner) if they have “outlived their usefulness.” Have no fear folks, in the new “Star Trek” reboot, director J.J. Abrams found a way to make all the characters useful once again.
The greatest aspect of the film is its intelligent script. Like Spock, the screenplay is part emotional, part logical and 100% amazing! Abrams’ film boldly goes where no other remakes have gone before. He actually made a compelling and fresh film from a source material that’s over forty years old. Read More...

Finally, Christina Aguilera finds a film to star in!
The songstress will make her screen debut in "Burlesque," a contemporary musical. Steven Antin will direct. He also wrote the script which was revised by Susannah Grant of "Erin Brockovich" fame.
Variety is saying that "Aguilera will play an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club that appears to be right out of Bob Fosse's 'Cabaret.'"
Well, if it's a musical with a little bit of erotic twinge, then "Burlesque" is a perfect vehicle for Aguilera who hasn't made a full-feature film, except for her voice work for "Shark Tale."
