"The Phantom" Sequel to be Filmed in Australia! 


I didn't know "The Phantom" has a huge cult following!

The 1996 film starring Billy Zane wasn't as great as it could have been, but now, the purple skintight-wearing superhero will return!

Here are some fun factoids:

*** it's a followup called "The Phantom Legacy"

*** this latest adaptation will cost $87 million

*** it will focus on the father/son relationship, and what it means to be Phantom

*** this film will be set in the present day

*** the concept? Destiny!

*** it will be shot entirely in Australia

*** production is set to begin within 6 to 9 months

*** producers are in talks with several "top talent" from Australia and the U.S.

So no director or star attached to the film yet, but it's going to be written by a guy named Tim Boyle.

Ah, I see!

Boston Film Critics Say Yes to "Wall-E" and "Slumdog Millionaire" 


"Wall-E" shared the top honor with "Slumdog Millionaire" for the Boston Society of Film Critics Awards!

Sean Penn for "Milk" is also sharing the Best Actor trophy with Mickey Rourke for "The Wrestler."

I heard it was an intense meeting yesterday, when the Boston critics decided who should take home the awards!

It's really too close to call for most films this year! Studios turned in high-quality flicks and the result is mostly a tie, or just heck, give it to "Slumdog Millionaire." :happy
