Director Richard Linklater's Upcoming Obama-Inspired Road Trip Comedy! 


Richard Linklater, the fantastic director who gave us "Dazed and Confused," "Slacker," "Before Sunrise," and "Before Sunset" films among others, is working on a road-trip comedy inspired by President Barack Obama's election victory.

The film is called "Liars (A-E)" from scriptwriter Emma Forrest. Scott Rudin is producing for Miramax.

Rebecca Hall ("Frost/Nixon," "Vicky Cristina Barcelona") is in talks to play a woman who's been dumped by her rocker fiancé on the eve of the president's victorious election.

So what does she do? She takes a road trip with her best friend (played by Kat Dennings) to Obama's inauguration. And along the way, she visits various ex-boyfriends to retrieve lost items.

Sounds intriguing!

"Jennifer's Body" Movie Review -- How Many Kisses Do Megan Fox and Amanda Seyfried Get? 


In 2007, Screenwriter Diablo Cody took the cinema world by storm with her biting, satirical look inside teenage pregnancy in “Juno.” So it's no surprise that all eyes are on her with the much-talked about horror satire “Jennifer's Body” where she also serves as the film's writer and executive producer.


In press notes, Cody is quoted as saying, “So I started thinking about what's scary to me, and I decided that girls are scary!" So Cody, with the help from director Karyn Kusama, tried to make a hybrid comedy-horror flick about teenage girls. What we got is a half-baked film about the horrors of a character's body yet the movie's heart is missing. Read More...

Get Ready for "Blue Man Group" the Movie! 


You know it's just a matter of time before the funny Blue Man Group conquers movie theaters. Now, National Geographic Entertainment has announced that the blue trio will have a big-screen adaptation and it's going to be called "Blue Man Group: Mind Blast."

National Geographic will release the stereoscopic 3D on both Imax 3-D and digital 3-D screens.

"Blue Man Group: Mind Blast" will go out to digital 3-D theaters in different successions and not a big day-and-date release on thousands of screens.

The film stars the the original Blue Men -- Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton. It's a comedy that explores the human mind and brain. Kind of like a comedy version of Christopher Nolan's "Inception." That film explores the dark architecture of the human mind.

"Let the Right One In" Director to Helm Nicole Kidman in Sex-Change Drama! 


Tomas Alfredson, the guy who gave us the fantastic "Let the Right One In" is set to direct Nicole Kidman in true-life sex-change drama "The Danish Girl." (See "Tranny Love! Nicole Kidman Romances Charlize Theron in New Film")

Based on David Ebershoff's novel about Danish painter Einar Wegener (Kidman), who became the first person to go through a sex-change operation to become a woman in 1931!

Charlize Theron, who was attached to play Wegener's wife, Gerda, has left the production. Aw :sad

Alfredson has indicated that he wanted to shoot "The Danish Girl" prior to working on "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," a John le Carre adaptation.
