Earlier this month, we told you about the planned remake of the 2003 Korean film "Oldboy." Will Smith is developing the movie with director Steven Spielberg.
Well, The Hollywood Reporter is saying Smith's "I Am Legend" co-screenwriter Mark Protosevich is in early talks to write the remake.
But there's one major catch! Apparently, Dreamworks' rights deal with Mandate Pictures (they own the rights to "Oldboy") is not complete...yet.
But who is this Protosevich anyway? Well, he's written "Poseidon" (bad) and "The Cell" (ho-hum) among others, and he's also worked on "Thor" (okay, exciting).

Well, it's still too early to tell. So far, my favorite documentaries are "Man On A Wire" and "Trouble the Water."
I love watching documentaries! It's like reality-TV but with a bigger brain and a much bigger heart. Oh yeah, and they're more gripping and interesting minus the now-famously corny reality-TV music.

Just look at the sexy screen grabs from the new trailer for "Star Trek."
Sex and violence may bring some necessary edge to the "Star Trek" franchise.
The trailer opens with a mysterious blond boy (who turns out to be James Tiberius Kirk). Then, lots of exploding ships, and glimpses of Sylar as Mr. Spock ("Heroes'" Zachary Quinto).
Then, some semi-naked action (check above pics).
And a fitting ending line delivered by Eric Bana as the villain Nero saying, "the wait is over."
Well, the wait is over...almost. We have to count months and days before "Star Trek" opens on May 8, 2009.
For now, fanboys and fangirls, let's drool on the spanking new trailer:

In a candid interview with LA Times, Miss Stephenie Meyer revealed the following:
*** WORKING WITH ROB PATTINSON (he's beginning to sound too intense, and too method-y with his acting, but hey, there's nothing wrong with that, if the final outcome is splendid)
*** THE TWIST ENDING (Why did they change the ending of the movie?)
*** HER FAVORITE CHARACTER
*** THE CUTEST BIT -- THE BEST THING SHE RECEIVED FROM A FAN
Miss Stephenie seemed to be a genuine person, and I'm glad I collected all the Twilight books (First Printing and signed y'all), 'cause of all the fandom!
Oh yeah, click here to read the full, mind-opening interview!

Director Baz Luhrmann's "Australia" premiered Tuesday, where else, in Australia!
After all the dramas and the happy-ending controversies, it's finally here!
According to The Variety, it was "generally enthusiastically received but Aussies were always going to be a tough audience." And that, invited guests "hadn’t been united in their response."
But here's the most heartwarming thing, Luhrmann, in a filmed tribute shown to the audience, was heard saying, "This is your Australia."
Aw. I can't wait to see this movie!!!
