DreamWorks Animation Reveals Super-secret Ghost Project! 

Last May, DreamWorks Animation CEO, Jeffrey Katzenberg, said a "supersecret ghost project" was in the works for a possible 2012 opening.

Well, it can now be revealed, that super-secret ghost project is known, at least internally, as "Boo U." "The Simpsons Movie" writer, Jon Vitti, is going to pen the screenplay which The Hollywood Reporter is saying "centers on a ghost who is bad at his job and must return to ghost school."

Hence, "Boo U."

DreamWorks Animation is loving ghost-themed animated flicks right now. First, they announced that "Freakers" was in the works. But now, that project is dead. However, there's another ghost-related flick, besides "Boo U," that is currently in the pitch stage. So stay tuned...

Trailer-rama! See 2 New Movie Trailers for "Zombieland" and "2012" Both Starring Woody Harrelson 

First stop, "Zombieland" starring Woody Harrelson as a zombie slayer named Tallahassee (it used to be Albuquerque when Columbia Pictures first announced the production last year.)

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, "Zombieland" looks like fun judging from the trailer. It reminds me of "Shaun of the Dead" -- mixing comedy and the undead!

Take a look at the trailer below. "Zombieland" opens nationwide Oct. 9, 2009.

Next stop, "2012."

This time, Mister Woody co-stars alongside John Cusack and Thandie Newton. You may have heard of the premise. Death and destruction await us in 2012, and the movie is an epic adventure about that global cataclysm and the survivors.

Hhhhm, intriguing premise, but Roland Emmerich ("Godzilla," "10,000 B.C") doesn't have a good track record, so let's wait and see.

At least the trailer looks fun :happy

Oh yeah, "2012" arrives in theaters Nov. 13, 2009, just in case we're all doomed in 2012, at least we've seen the movie beforehand.

The Impossible is Now Possible! "Mission: Impossible IV" is Coming Soon!  

Tom Cruise and Paramount are now friends again, hence, "Mission: Impossible IV" is in the works! If you remember, the actor left the studio in 2006 when Viacom chief Sumner Redstone ended their 14-year-old tie with Cruise.

But now, Redstone is even heard saying Cruise is "a great actor and a good friend." So drama ended, "Mission: Impossible IV" is in full speed ahead.

Cruise and J.J. Abrams have both agreed to co-produce the flick, which is currently being targeted for a 2011 release.

But first, Abrams must work on a "Star Trek" sequel, while Cruise will be busy shooting his romantic action comedy flick with Cameron Diaz to be directed by James Mangold.

"The Proposal" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Does Sandra Bullock Get? 

In “The Proposal,” Sandra Bullock returns to the genre that she does best – romantic comedy. But the actress politely corrected me when I interviewed her for “The Proposal.” She said the film is not a romantic comedy, “just a comedy period.”

Bullock says, “It drives me insane when movies are called romantic comedies when most of them are neither romantic nor funny. ‘The Proposal’ is a funny comedy.” She’s absolutely right about that last statement. The film is very funny indeed.

Directed by ex-choreographer Anne Fletcher, “The Proposal” has an infectious rhythm that will keep your interest all the way up to the predictable ending. Sure, the film is formulaic but at least the filmmakers have the winning formula down pat. The movie made me giggle like a blushing bride. Read More...

Bummer! Sean Penn Says No to "Three Stooges" Among Others!  

Sean Penn has pulled out of two films, including "The Three Stooges," citing personal reasons.

The actor who's been having marital dramas with Robin Wright Penn is taking an undetermined sabbatical affecting yet-to-be-filmed movies that he's already attached to.

One of those films is Universal's "Cartel" about a man who vows to protect his son after his wife is murdered by Mexican cartels. Peter Craig wrote the script, and Asger Leth is set to direct. Hhhmmmm, can I suggest Liam Neeson to the role? This fits him perfectly!

But the one I'm really bummed about is the MGM comedy "The Three Stooges" from the Farrelly Brothers. Penn was set to co-star as Larry alongside Jim Carrey as Curly and Benicio Del Toro as Moe. Perfect casting right? It would have been a dream cast!

(Check the full story of "The Three Stooges" casting right here)

Right now, it's unclear whether MGM will recast the Larry role, or wait for Penn's return from his sabbatical leave.

But so far, the actor has completed the following films:

*** "Fair Game" -- Doug Liman directs and Naomi Watts co-stars in this drama about CIA agent Valerie Plame.

*** "Tree of Life" -- Terrence Malick directs and Brad Pitt co-stars.

Both movies will be released next year.

Penn is also in talks to star in "This Must Be the Place" to be directed by Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino making his English-language debut. Even though financing and scheduling are not yet finished, Penn is still intending to make this movie...when he returns from his absence.

Clearly, the actor needs time to focus on his family, so more power to him! Just don't disappear for long 'cause you will be missed Mister Sean!
