Sylvester Stallone Has A "Death Wish" Plus, He Really, Really Wants Edgar Allan Poe!  


Sylvester Stallone is all over the pop culture landscape. The actor-director is starting to tease us with his upcoming "The Expendables" and he's also working on the pre-production for "Rambo 5."

But now, he revealed to Empire Online, that he wanted to remake the Charles Bronson masterpiece, "Death Wish." It's the original vigilante movie from the 70s.

"I'm thinking about it," Stallone told Empire. "It's a classic morality tale, where you take a civilised man and take away everything that matters to him so he becomes primitive again."

But wait, there's more! Stallone is not stopping with "Death Wish" for all his film wishes. He also has a passion for American Gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe. Sly wants his pit and pendulum too :happy

Although Stallone said he would not be playing the author (he died at 39), he thinks an autobiographical film about Poe is bound to come.

When asked about the planned "Cliffhanger" remake, the actor told Empire, "You know you've been around when they start to remake your own movies when you're still alive."

Aw, just don't let them remake "Rocky" 'cause Stallone is still the Italian Stallion!

First Look: "Clash of the Titans" and Sam Worthington in All His Perseus Glory! 


Doesn't Sam Worthington look hot in this picture? He's Perseus-perfect! When I first heard that he's going to star in the role that Harry Hamlin made famous for in the 1981 original film, I was skeptical.

But upon meeting the actor, and seeing pics of him in his Perseus costume, I'm sold! I love Greek mythology, so I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. But we have to wait until March 26 of 2010 before we can see the film.

Full disclosure -- Worthington is my new man-crush. Why? He's nice, sweet, and he watches my videos! Yes! Check out my fun interview with him for "Terminator Salvation" by clicking here. I even made Christian Bale laugh when I told him I'm replacing him for Worthington in my man-crush category HA! :happy

"Ice Age" Director to Adapt Videogame "Spore" 


The videogame "Spore" is set to be a big screen animated creature feature from "Ice Age" director Chris Wedge. Fox has teamed up with Electronic Arts for the movie adaptation.

Greg Erb and Jason Oremland will write the script. The duo wrote Disney's upcoming "The Princess and the Frog" and Ben Stiller's "The Return of King Doug."

The animation will be handled by EA and Blue Sky Studios, the animation production behind the "Ice Age" films, "Robots," and the upcoming "Rio."

"Spore," the videogame, was released in September 2008, and enables players to create their own creatures and the worlds they live in and share them with other players for their own universe!

To date, "Spore" has sold more than 3.2 million units. It's a ready-made brand fit to be a feature film.

Christopher Nolan's "Inception" to be seen in Imax 


Christopher Nolan and Imax are back together again! The director's "Dark Knight" grossed $65 million on Imax screens, and his "Batman Begins" was also shown on giant screens.

Now, Nolan's sci-fi pic "Inception" will be released on Imax screens as well. Imax Corp. has announced "Inception" will be unveiled on giant screens on July 16, 2010.

"Inception" stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page and Nolan's lucky charm, Michael Caine. It's about the dark architectures of the human mind.

If you remember, Nolan shot specific Imax scenes for "The Dark Knight," so expect for the director to have giant-screen-ready sequences for "Inception."

See New "Tooth Fairy" Trailer with Dwayne Johnson! A Disney Film NOT Made by Disney! 


"Tooth Fairy" starring Dwayne Johnson is a Disney movie NOT made by Disney! Just consider the premise, it sounds like "The Game Plan" with a little bit of fairy dust. Johnson plays a pro hockey player nicknamed the Tooth Fairy. Why? Because he knocks out other players' teeth. He disappoints a young boy, so he's ordered to one week's hard labor as the real...tan dan dan...Tooth Fairy!

There will be a lot of fairy goodness here from Johnson, who by the way, is a sweet man! (Check out my interview with Johnson for "Race to Witch Mountain" right here)

"Tooth Fairy" is from director Michael Lembeck who gave us "Santa Clause 2 & 3," and "Connie and Carla." The film also stars Ashley Judd and Julie Andrews. This film's from Fox.

"Tooth Fairy" is rated PG and flies into theaters January 22nd, 2010.

Take a look at the trailer:
