Michael Moore's New Movie is a Love Story! 


Well, not quite a romantic love story, but Michael Moore's new documentary is titled "Capitalism: A Love Story." The film will be about the global economic meltdown. The cause? Our love affair with capitalism.

During the film's announcement, Moore revealed:

"It will be the perfect date movie. It's got it all -- lust, passion, romance and 14,000 jobs being eliminated every day. It's a forbidden love, one that dare not speak its name. Heck, let's just say it: It's capitalism."

"Capitalism: A Love Story" will be released on Oct. 2 by Overture films.

Say what you will about Moore, but I think the man is a creative, astute filmmaker and his documentaries can never be ignored. From "Roger & Me" to "Sicko" and "Fahrenheit 9/11" in between, Moore's documentaries incite emotions, reactions, and perhaps, action.

So yeah, needless to say, I'll be in theaters Oct. 2 to watch "Capitalism: A Love Story."

Will Smith Reteams with "I Am Legend" Director! They're Set to Split Off Manhattan! 


Will Smith and director Francis Lawrence are back together again.

The two worked on "I Am Legend," and now, both will be working on "City that Sailed."

The premise is intriguing -- a father and daughter living on opposite sides of the ocean love each other so strongly that it causes Manhattan to split off and float across the Atlantic.

So Manhattan is the city that sailed...aw....

This project is currently setup at 20th Century Fox and Smith is producing, and may be the star.

The script will be rewritten by "Ocean's Thirteen" writers Brian Koppleman and David Levien. "Truman Show's" Andrew Niccol originally wrote the script.

Right now, Lawrence is also courting Reese Witherspoon to star in "Water for Elephants," an adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel that the director is set to helm. The actress hasn't committed yet.

Vassup? Read My "Bruno" Movie Review! Is it Better than "Borat?" 


Anal bleaching, talking penis, kinky sex, and dildos-on-parade – just some of the running gags of the new mockumentary comedy film “Bruno” starring Sacha Baron Cohen. If you find these risqué subjects offensive, you have been warned.

But talking penises aside, “Bruno” is a laugh-out-loud politically incorrect film that targets homophobia. Similar to Cohen’s “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” bigotry is the focal point of the movie and the source of many guffaws. Read More...

Who's Directing "Smurfs" the Movie? Hint: It's Going to the Dogs! 


First things first: "Smurfs" will be a live-action/animated film to be released in 3-D and 2-D formats on Dec. 17, 2010.

Are you excited? If you're not a "Smurfs" fan, I don't think you'll care...but...apparently, Sony believes there are many fans of the little blue folks out there. Yeah, I'm one of them!

"Charlotte Web's" Jordan Kerner is producing from the script by "George of the Jungle's" Audrey Wells.

So who's going to direct?

It's Raja Gosnell, the guy who gave us "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."

I met Mister Raja when I did the press junket for "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and he's a nice, smart man who may be able to handle the dwarf-like "Smurfs."

"Seabiscuit" Director Reteams with Tobey Maguire for "Spider-Man 4" 


Gary Ross joins the creative team of "Spider-Man" for the fourth film in the franchise. The "Seabiscuit" director will work with his star, Tobey Maguire, again.

This time though, Ross will be taking charge of the script. "Spider-Man" franchise director Sam Raimi will return to helm.

Scriptwriter James Vanderbilt originally wrote "Spider-Man 4" and then David Lindsay-Abaire came in for rewrites. Now, Ross is handling all the writing work. But that's not a good sign, when a film has been rewritten so many times.

Still, Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios will move forward with the production early next year.

Ross is also rewriting and possibly directing Columbia's film about cyclist Lance Armstrong. The movie will focus on the cycling star's recovery from cancer to his triumphant victory of winning 7 Tour de France titles.
