I Finally Got Around to Watching "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra." See the Good, the Bad, and yes, the Ugly! 

I was disheartened by Paramount’s decision not to show “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” to critics. The studio chose to screen the Hasbro-based film to fans. Upon seeing the movie, I realized why Paramount kept the film from the prying eyes of critics. “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” is the campiest movie I’ve seen this year since the Beyonce Knowles and Ali Larter starrer “Obsessed.”

See the good, the bad, the ugly, and the bottom line of "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" by clicking Read More...

"Hancock" Sequel Hires "The Shield" Writers 

"Hancock 2" is taking flight!

Columbia Pictures has hired Adam Fierro and Glen Mazzara to write the sequel to the reluctant superhero movie. The original team, as well as Will Smith, are expected to return.

Plot is a top secret right now, but Fierro and Mazzara will work with Smith and director Peter Berg on the world mentioned in the first movie. Perhaps a prequel of some sorts to show the relationship between Smith's and Charlize Theron's characters.

Both Fierro and Mazzara wrote for FX's "The Shield." Fierro also worked on Fox's "24" and Showtime's "Dexter," while Mazarra did scribe duties on Starz's "Crash," and NBC's "Life."

Justin Theroux Joins James Franco, Natalie Portman in "Your Highness" 

Justin Theroux joins the cast of "Your Highness" as the villain. As we reported back in May, Natalie Portman, Danny McBride, Zooey Dechanel, and James Franco star in the medieval fantasy comedy for Universal Pictures.

Franco's "Pineapple Express" director, David Gordon Green, is helming the production currently shooting in Ireland.

McBride, who also wrote the script with Ben Best, will play a lazy prince who, together with his brother (Franco), must go on a quest to save their kingdom and those they love. Portman will star as a warrior princess who falls in love with the lazy prince.

Theroux will play the evil wizard Leezar who kidnaps a princess (Deschanel). He has a bejeweled magical staff! The film marks a return to acting for Theroux, who co-wrote last year's "Tropic Thunder" with Ben Stiller and Etan Cohen.

Christopher Nolan's "Inception." See New Teaser Trailer!  

All we know right now is that "Inception," from "The Dark Knight" director, Christopher Nolan, is a contemporary science fiction tale set within the architecture of the human mind.

We also know that this Warner Bros. production stars Leonardo DiCaprio alongside Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, and Ellen Page.

And I'm also thrilled that Nolan is directing a script he wrote! I think he's a brilliant director and scriptwriter.

Universal Finds Director for "Bioshock" 

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is in serious talks to direct "Bioshock" for Universal Pictures. It's an adaptation of the Take-Two-Interactive videogame.

Fresnadillo is known for directing "28 Weeks Later."

Gore Verbinski ("Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise) was attached to direct but stepped out due to his commitment to Paramount's animated film "Rango" reuniting him with his "Pirates" star Johnny Depp. The actor is set to voice the lead character.

Verbinski is still attached as "Bioshock's" producer. At one point, Universal and Verbinski couldn't agree on the budget (the film's original budget, under Verbinski, was reaching $160 million).

With Fresnadillo's involvement, this underwater adventure (the film is set in the underwater city of Rapture) sails forward.
