As we told you in February (click here for the full story), "Total Recall" is being remade. We now know who the writer is going to be.
His name is Kurt Wimmer, the guy who gave us "Street Kings" and he also wrote "Salt," the upcoming film starring Angelina Jolie. He also penned the upcoming "Law Abiding Citizen" starring Gerald Butler.
As far as the plot? Columbia Pictures is saying that it's going to be a "contemporized adaptation" of Philip K. Dick's story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," the same basis of the original "Total Recall" film.

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.

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.

"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)
