White Chicks looked like such a disaster of a movie. I'd never, ever pay anything to see that. Wimbledon looks good and I'm looking forward to the sequel to Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve.

Resident Evil 3 a Follow-Up to the Games

Source: The Hollywood Reporter September 13, 2004

With the success of Screen Gems' Resident Evil: Apocalypse this weekend in theaters, the movie's producers and Impact Pictures partners Jeremy Bolt and Paul W. S. Anderson believe that their story leads inexorably to "Resident Evil: Afterlife."

"I always thought of the 'Resident Evil' films as a trilogy," Anderson told The Hollywood Reporter. "The first film was a prequel to the game world. The new movie intersects the film and game worlds. And the third movie will act as a follow-up to the games. It's a nice arc -- prehistory, in-game and then a sequel to the games."

Milla Jovovich has already said she'd love to do a third film.

If I do another movie list for this year, Hitch will be on it. It's a Will Smith romantic comedy which looks like it's Big Willy at his best. As for Ocean's Twelve, I think it's a tad risky to do a sequel to a remake, but I suppose it doesn't make much of a difference since they didn't exactly follow the plot to the original very closely.

Ramirez Joining Fuqua's American Gangster

Source: The Hollywood Reporter September 13, 2004

Dania Ramirez (She Hate Me, Fat Albert) is in talks to join the Brian Grazer-produced American Gangster. Antoine Fuqua is directing the Universal Pictures/Imagine Entertainment project, starring Denzel Washington and Benicio Del Toro.

The film is a biopic of Harlem heroin kingpin Frank Lucas. Lucas grew up in rural, segregated North Carolina. In the early 1970s, he became the biggest heroin dealer in Harlem with a smuggling scheme that imported the stuff out of Southeast Asia in the caskets of Vietnam soldiers. The film centers on narcotics lawman Richie Roberts' struggle to bring down Lucas, whose flamboyant style earned him the street name "Superfly." Lucas goes on to help Roberts hunt down dirty cops and overseas connections.

"Gangster" is expected to start shooting in the Fall for a November 4, 2005 release. Steve Zaillian wrote the script.

Simpson Confirmed for The Dukes of Hazzard

Source: Variety September 14, 2004

Variety reports that, after months of talks, Jessica Simpson has come on board to play Daisy Duke, the leggy, Jeep-driving cousin of Luke and Bo Duke, in Warner Bros.' adaptation of 1979-85 TV series The Dukes of Hazzard.

It was announced last week that Johnny Knoxville and Seann William Scott will play Luke and Bo, respectively.

The film, to be directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (Club Dread, Super Troopers), has now also gotten the green light. The studio has approved a final budget and a new script by John O'Brien, a writer on Starsky & Hutch.

This will mark the Newlyweds star's feature acting debut, though she did appear as herself in The Master of Disguise.

Just to know that this DVD "is the tip of the iceberg" makes me wanna by it more and more. I wonder what else the are going to release from the archive. It would be cool if they released a box set of special features based off each film.

It would be cool if they released the original fucking movies. Either way, I'm waiting for the inevitable 6 movie set when Episode III hits DVD. Anyone who buys this box set is gonna get screwed when they release that one, just like they're doing with the Matrix now.

Doesn't look like there is much for movie releases. "Mean Girls"? Ugh. If you can, keep an eye out for the documentary "The Corporation". It was in theatres in June-July, but I'm not sure how long those are in theatres. I'm holding out hope it'll be available here, since Fog of War was.

Danny Elfman Singing Oompa Loompa Songs

Source: Ain't-It-Cool-News September 15, 2004

Ain't-It-Cool-News reports that composer Danny Elfman mentioned on the Forbidden Zone DVD that, on top of scoring, he'll sing for Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as well.

"I'm singing all of the Oompa Loompa songs in 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," he says. "I'll be doing the voices of the Oompa Loompas."

Elfman previously sang for Jack Skellington in the Burton-produced The Nightmare Before Christmas. Warner Bros. Pictures will release the new adaptation, starring Johnny Depp, on July 15.

I'm glad that in a time of war, when national security is threatened everyday, we can still take time out of our lives to protest children's movies because they aren't politically correct.

The Columbus Citizens Foundation, which produces New York's annual Columbus Day parade, has become the latest Italian-American organization to protest against Shark Tale, the DreamWorks animated film about the shark "underworld." The film features the voices of Robert De Niro, Peter Falk, and actors who have appeared in HBO's The Sopranos. In a statement, the Columbus Citizens Foundation charged that the film makes "unprecedented use of ethnic stereotypes to characterize villains." The group's president, Lawrence Auriana, was quoted as saying, "It is startling that this entertainment should come from DreamWorks, one of whose principals, Steven Spielberg, has been an outspoken opponent of stereotyping and discrimination." A spokeswoman for DreamWorks called the group's complaints "wildly inaccurate" and maintained that the movie "is a positive, uplifting family film with nothing negative or demeaning about it."

It's not a stereotype. It is a well known fact that sharks have mafiaoso type of order.

If you look back through america's history you will see that most mobsters were in fact of Italian Heritage.

Eddie Kaye Thomas Doing Dirty Love

Source: Beverly Hills Film Studios Inc. September 15, 2004

Beverly Hills Film Studios Inc. has announced that "American Pie" star Eddie Kaye Thomas has come aboard the new romantic comedy Dirty Love as the male lead.

The film, now in production in Los Angeles, stars Jenny McCarthy and Carmen Electra in the female lead roles. The project is being helmed by John Asher (Diamonds) and produced by Kimberley Kates and BJ Davis of Beverly Hills Film Studios. The film also marks the screenwriting debut of McCarthy.

Also starring in the film are the members of Canadian band Sum 41 including Deryck Whibley, who will be playing a love interest of Electra's character. In the third female lead is the beautiful Kam Heskin (Catch Me If You Can, Planet of the Apes). Heskin plays the role of airy and flamboyant "Carrie," best friend of McCarthy's character, "Rebecca."

Starring as the villain ex-boyfriend of McCarthy's character will be Victor Webster, best known as a star on Days of Our Lives. Also starring is actor Lochlyn Munro (White Chicks), Survivor hunk Colby Donaldson, and comedian Kathy Griffin.

"We are thrilled to have assembled such a great cast for this film, and all of the media attention is great. We think that audiences will love the combo of Electra and McCarthy, and the script is hilarious," said Kates and Davis.

Accompanying star names on Dirty Love will be sponsorships with Pony Shoes, who will tie in the film to a major ad campaign, as well as women's fashion label XOXO, Patron brand Tequila, men's magazine FHM, Red Bull and Fuji Film. All products will be featured in the movie.

Dirty Love is expected to be released in summer 2005. Currently, talks are underway with several major distributors for worldwide rights.

Dirty Love is a modern-day Cinderella story which sees disaster-prone McCarthy embark on an outrageous and hilarious journey in search of true love. In the film, Rebecca (McCarthy) is betrayed by her boyfriend and following a palm reader's prophecy goes in search of her perfect partner. This riotous and entertaining dating spree gets her slapped by a fish at one point, and even lands her in jail!

War of the Worlds vs. Fantastic Four

Source: The Hollywood Reporter September 16, 2004

While 20tCentury Fox first set a July 1, 2005 release date for its Marvel Comics adaptation Fantastic Four, Paramount Pictures has now moved the Steven Spielberg-directed and Tom Cruise adaptation of H.G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds two days earlier, to Wednesday, June 29.

The current situation would give Fantastic Four four days to tally up a big box office, since the Fourth lands on a Monday, but now "Worlds" has positioned itself for an even bigger six day box office opening.

The Hollywood Reporter says neither studio is backing down so far. "'Fantastic Four' is in the league of 'X-Men' and 'Spider-Man,' and over the last two summers those movies have opened to an average of over $100 million," Fox executive vp marketing Jeffrey Godsick said. "'Fantastic Four' has been shooting for a while and looks to be true to its name -- fantastic." The trade says Paramount declined comment for the article.

It's nothing new for Fox though, as Paramount previously scheduled Cruise sequel Mission: Impossible 3 on the same date, June 29, before pushing it back a year to make way for "Worlds". "Worlds" will face a much tighter post-production schedule than "Four".

The only other wide release on July 1st is Disney's animated Chicken Little, which Fox views as family-oriented counterprogramming that would not compete directly with "Four".
