Will "The Lone Ranger" Finally Giddyup on February 6, 2012? 


First, Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer were all set to star as Tonto and the Lone Ranger, respectively, for Disney's big screen version of the iconic TV western. Then...it was scrapped.

Afterwards, we were hearing that Disney asked Depp, uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and director Gore Verbinski to take some pay cuts because the production budget is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. It's a risky $250-million investment since truth be told, moviegoers are just not interested in the western genre anymore. "Cowboys & Aliens" anyone?

By the way, do they really need $250 million to make "The Lone Ranger?" Really?

But now, Deadline is saying that Disney "has set The Lone Ranger to start production February 6, 2012."

We'll see if this is true. By the time the movie hits theaters we've all walked into the sunset...away from the film!

Jim Carrey Joins Steve Carell in Magician Comedy that Sounds a Lot Like "The Prestige!" 


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.

Another "Paranormal Activity 3" Trailer! The Hype Won't Stop, But I Love This Franchise! 
Yes, I'm looking forward to seeing the third installment of the "Paranormal Activity" franchise. I enjoyed the first two, so we'll see if the "Catfish" team of Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman will give justice to the beloved horror baby of Oren Peli.

Untitled "Snow White" Project Starring Julia Roberts Reveals New, Pretty Pictures! 


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!
