For fans of the "Anchorman" film, this news may be an Afternoon Delight!
Apparently, Will Ferrell is set to meet with Paul Rudd and Steve Carell to discuss ideas and salaries!
Rumor is, the setting of the sequel will bring 1970s anchor dude Ron Burgandy to the 1980s! BRILLIANT!
Ferrell, during his "Land of the Lost" world press tour, visited the show of popular Australian radio hosts Jono & Dano and confirmed that the stage is set for "Anchorman 2."
(Click here for the interview)
Ferrell says he's meeting with Rudd and Carrell for salaries because "believe me, I'm not taking a pay-cut. No way!"
Hhhhmmmmm, what crisis can our "Anchorman" folks face? And most importantly, what 1980s pop culture icons should they desecrate?

Hugh Jackman and Daniel Craig are pairing up for Broadway! That's right, Wolverine and James Bond on stage!
The New York Post is reporting that the pair will star in "A Steady Rain," a play about two Chicago cops whose bond is tested after an investigation of a domestic dispute in a poor neighborhood.
Jackman's stage prowess has already been tested (he won a 2004 Tony Award for "A Boy From Oz"), but this will be the first-ever Broadway appearance for Craig.
The producer of the play? Barbara Broccoli, Craig's boss in the James Bond movie franchise.

From the sea (“Finding Nemo”) to the race tracks (“Cars”) to faraway galaxies (“Wall-E”), Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios have been consistent in delighting us with great storytelling and filmmaking.
Now, the studios are taking us up, up, and away on one of their funniest adventures of all time. “Up” is the 10th Disney/Pixar movie and is definitely one of their best. Read More...

I'm a BIG "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fan. I even wrote a dissertation paper on the subject during Grad school. And if you happen to tour my house, you'll see Limited Edition "Buffy" collectibles from trading cards to statues to props!
Yes, I'm a HUGE fan.
So, the news about "Buffy the Vampire Slaer" remake or "relaunch" made me happy, and then...I heard that creator Joss Whedon is NOT a part of it!
Right now, there's no studio behind the project, no Whedon in sight, but the original movie director Fran Rubel Kuzui and her husband, Kaz Kuzui, are working with Vertigo Entertainment on what they call a relaunch NOT a sequel or a prequel.
I've always wondered why Kuzui's name is always on the credits for the TV show, because her Kuzui Enterprises have held onto the rights since the very beginning and will never, ever let go.
Kuzui is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing, because without her, we would have never seen the influential TV show (she brought the idea to 20th Century FOX and brought Whedon along). A curse, because, honestly, the original film wasn't that good (heck, the pilot for the TV show was 100% better), and now, they're going to mess up the universe or Buffy-verse that Whedon created.
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
The new "Buffy" film, however, would have no connection to the TV series, nor would it use popular supporting characters like Angel, Willow, Xander or Spike. Vertigo and Kuzui are looking to restart the story line without trampling on the beloved existing universe created by Whedon, putting the parties in a similar situation faced by Paramount, J.J. Abrams and his crew when relaunching "Star Trek."
In every generation there could only be one slayer, hence, Kuzui and company will take liberty from that show's conceit. But, um, have they heard of Whedon's comic book character "Fray?" She is a slayer from the future that Kuzui can play with.
Yeah, I'm happy to see a "Buffy" movie, but I'm sad that the connections the heroine made will not be seen. Look, can you imagine "Star Trek" with just Captain Kirk on it? Of course not!
