Writer-Director Paul Haggis and Lionsgate -- Together Again 


Writer-director Paul Haggis is reuniting with Lionsgate for "The Next Three Days" based on the French Flick "Pour Elle."

"Pour Elle" is a mesmerizing, taut film about a high school teacher who'll do anything to rescue his wrongly imprisoned wife...drama!

Haggis tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I'm looking forward to exploring the depths of faith and the limits of love."

The writer-director won Oscars for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay for "Crash," a film distributed by Lionsgate.

"Where's Waldo?" the Movie Will Appear in Theaters Near You! 


Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment found "Where's Waldo?"

The books, if you remember, have full-page illustrations where you try to find the main character dressed in his normal garb -- red-and white shirt, hat, glasses, and a walking stick.

Now, Waldo will be found in a live-action family picture!

No word yet on actors or creative team but do you remember the cartoon based on the book franchise? No? Well, here's the intro to help you remember. :wink

"Twilight" Dominates MTV Movie Awards but Bruno Rocks! See the Complete List of Winners! 


"Twilight" ruled the MTV Movie Awards winning 5 awards including Best Movie. The late Heath Ledger won the best villain trophy.

But predictably, the awards night was overshadowed by Sacha Baron Cohen's stunt as Bruno, descending from the ceiling and landing on Eminem, with the visibly (or pretend) distraught rapper storming off the ceremony.

My favorite line? Bruno telling Eminem, "Is the real Slim Shady about to stand up?" (Check the video right here)

Here's the Complete list of winners at the 2009 MTV Movie Awards:

Best Movie: "Twilight"

Best Female Performance: Kristen Stewart, "Twilight"

Best Male Performance: Zac Efron, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year"

Breakthrough Performance Female: Ashley Tisdale, "High School Musical 3: Senior Year"

Breakthrough Performance Male: Robert Pattinson, "Twilight"

Best Comedic Performance: Jim Carrey, "Yes Man"

Best Villain: Heath Ledger, "The Dark Knight"

Best Fight: Robert Pattinson vs. Cam Gigandet, "Twilight"

Best Kiss: Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, "Twilight"

Best WTF Moment: Amy Poehler for Peeing in the Sink in "Baby Mama"

Best Song From a Movie: "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus, "Hannah Montana: The Movie"

Generation Award Winner: Ben Stiller

The Black Dots on "Twilight's" Robert Pattinson's Face Explained! The Diamond Effect! 


So why was Robert Pattinson's face covered with black dots? This picture was part of the "The Twilight Saga: New Moon" shots released last week.

Calm down "Twilight" fans -- it's all for the diamond effect! You know, the film's (and the book's) conceit that vampires glisten, no make that glitter, under the sun! The scene in "Twilight" where Edward shows off his diamond skin to Bella (Kristen Stewart) in the forest.

So the black dots are for the effects for the sake of the Edward Cullen character.

Radar Online is reporting:

Animation pro Mar Elephano says the dots are for Moon's CGI team, used as markers in creating the diamond effect that Twilight saga vampires experience when exposed to sunlight.

"These are markers to help the person who is creating the effect put the diamonds on his body later and it will be composited,˛ Elephano, production supervisor in the animation department at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, tells us.

"When he moves the diamonds stay with him in 3-D space, farther and closer, the shape of the diamond will change depending on how far or close he is when he moves from the camera.˛

While the effect certainly makes audiences swoon, it doesn't come cheap.

"This CGI can cost $5,000 a second!" Elephano reveals. If last week's shots of Kristen Stewart's
Bella running into Edward's arms by a fountain in Montepulciano is about eight seconds long--that's $40,000!


What? It cost that much? Well, I hope that the diamond effect in "New Moon" is better than "Twilight" because frankly, I don't think it was well conveyed in the first film, as much as it was gloriously described by author Stephenie Meyer in the book.
