So Deadline told us that Jim Carrey is in talks to star with Steve Carell for New Line's "Burt Wonderstone." This one will be directed by Don Scardino and Carell will play the title role. He's a Las Vegas magician who leaves his longtime stage partner only to find himself upstaged by a rival hip street magician. I told you it's like a contemporary albeit comedy version of Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige." So Carell is like the Hugh Jackman character and maybe Carrey will be the Christian Bale magician, only funnier.

Isn't it pretty? Snow White surrounded by her seven dwarves? Relativity Media has released new images of their still-untitled "Snow White" project starring "The Blind Side's" Lily Collins in the title role and Julia Roberts as the ultra-fierce Evil Queen.
This one will stay true to the spirit of the Brothers Grimm fable but with a decidedly more edgy take with vengeance at its heart. Snow White is looking for revenge after her evil stepmother kills her father. So who does she call for help? The seven dwarves of course! By the way, the seven little people with big hearts will be played by Jordan Prentice, Joey Gnoffo, Sabastian Saraceno, Martin Klebba, Mark Provinelli and Ronald Lee Clark.
I'm sure the dwarves will not be called Sneezy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc, Happy, Bashful, and Grumpy.
"The Social Network's" Armie Hammer (gosh, I'm really getting tired of always using that movie to reference the actor) will play the dashing Prince Andrew Alcott in director Tarsem Singh's version.
Relativity better decide on a title for this project as its release date of June 29, 2012 is fast approaching.
I am making a prediction now -- this movie will be nominated for an Oscar for the Best Costume Design next year. Just look at them duds!

Well folks, Fox has confirmed that new installments of the "Die Hard" and "Percy Jackson" franchises are heading to theaters near you whether you like it or not! So yippee ki-yay...you know what's next.
The fifth installment of the franchise that just won't die is now called "A Good Day to Die Hard." Bruce Willis will return to the role of John McClaine, because he's not busy apparently, and I heard that this one will feature the character's son. You know what that means right? McClaine will pass the baton to his son, so yup, this is a franchise that just won't ever, ever die! Hard!
Fox has targeted the much-coveted date of Feb. 14, 2013 because sweethearts all over the world will be in the mood to watch yet another "Die Hard" movie on Valentine's Day. Right? No?
This one will be directed by long-time Fox busy-bee John Moore because loyalty is big in the studio. The guy who gave us the cinematic masterpieces such as "Max Payne" and "The Omen" remake beat out other contenders such as Justin Lin of "Fast Five," and gasp, Nicolas Winding Refn of "Drive" AND Joe Cornish of "Attack the Block!" Yup, this one will definitely suck!
Speaking of sucking, are you excited for another "Percy Jackson" movie? This one's also from Fox and the studio has set the date of March 26, 2013 for the latest one called "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters."
Can I tell you a secret? I was lukewarm with the first "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" but lo and behold, after repeated watching on cable, it actually grew on me. So, the sequel may have a gleam of hope! I thought the second flick would be called "Percy Jackson & the Clash of the Titans," HA!
And now, more Fox release dates (thanks Hollywood Reporter):
Oct. 5, 2012 (Columbus Day weekend) -- "Taken 2" -- who will be taken this time? Liam Neeson?
Oct. 26, 2012 -- "Men & Mavericks" -- Gerard Butler goes surfing
Nov. 21, 2012 (Thanksgiving) -- "Parental Guidance" starring Billy Crystal, Marisa Tomei, and Bette Midler" from director Andy Finkman
Oct. 11, 2013 -- "Walking with Dinosaurs"
