Fans eager to see the return of Agents Jay and Kay in Men In Black 3 have been forced to suffer through a number of let-downs and delays as far back as April of 2009 – when Sony first mentioned developing the sequel.
Men in Black 3 production was halted back in December, to allow Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) time to work on some key rewrites. Now, it seems as if Sony is bringing in one more writer to work out the kinks in the troubled screenplay – heavy-hitter David Koepp.
According to Deadline, Sony has brought Koepp in for several weeks worth of rewrites, with the hopes of getting the floundering film back on track, in order to resume production on March ...

When Disney announced that Toy Story 3 wouldn’t be the last time we’d see Woody and Buzz together, the idea that their human counterparts Tom Hanks and Tim Allen would be appearing together in a Jungle Cruise movie probably wasn’t what the company heads had in mind. Then again, the Mouse House works in mysterious ways.
Fast forward to the present and multiple-Oscar winner Hanks and his comedic costar Allen have signed on the dotted line to headline a cinematic version of the classic Disney theme park safari expedition ride.
Here’s an official statement on the matter:

Forget the super-powered alien teen models from I Am Number Four -- the legit invasion of planet Earth by hostile extraterrestrials in 2011 gets underway next Friday with Battle: Los Angeles (and, technically, Mars Needs Moms as well, since it gets released the same day).
Sony/Columbia is heightening awareness for the already highly-anticipated picture and has produced no less than nine new television trailers, clips, and spots for the film. Most of the clips recycle the same few minutes of footage over and over, so it won’t feel like you’ve seen the entire movie after watching them all.
On the off chance you’ve forgotten, here’s the setup for Battle: Los Angeles:
For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world — Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, China. But in 2011, what were once ...

In January we learned that Javier Bardem was the hot favorite to take the lead in Ron Howard’s screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. The Spanish Oscar-winner still hasn’t signed on (he’s also mulling over a villain role in the next James Bond film) but the producer of epic undertaking, Brian Grazer, says that Bardem is “locked in psychologically” for the film and its follow-ups.
Bardem’s fellow Oscar winners, Christian Bale and Viggo Mortensen, were also in contention for the role of Roland Deschain, but Bardem came out as an early front-runner.
