Will Ghostbuster 3 EVER get made? The script’s been done for awhile now, but Bill Murray just can’t seem to get around to reading it. And when Murray appeared on The Howard Stern Show this morning, he explained exactly why he’s in no rush.
The main reason that skimming the script is so low on his list of priorities is how far Ghostbusters 2 veered from what he thought it would be. According to Murray:
I only made one sequel and it was Ghostbusters 2 and it didn’t end up the way it was presented.
Aidan Turner has been playing the broody (and moody) vampire John Mitchell for three seasons of the BBC’s Being Human. But his being cast in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit—as well as dark events culminating in the third season of the show—may hint at a very sinister fate for the character.
Will John Mitchell bite the proverbial dust? And will his role on The Hobbit be to blame?
Browncoats rejoice: EW is reporting that Firefly is returning to basic cable — and Nathan Fillion has something to say about it.
The Science Channel has acquired the rights to the cult-hit and will air the series in its short-lived entirety, plus some new extras. Science Channel will wrap each episode with interstitial segments starring renowned physicist Dr. Michio Kaku, who will discuss the theoretical science behind the show’s sci-fi concepts.
With X-Men: First Class well on its way to the theaters, director Matthew Vaughn has his eye set on a flick about superheroes in the sunset of their years: sort of an Expendables with capes. But then again it’s been done before, both in comics and movies. So we shall see.
Star Trek: Nemesis, the last film featuring the Next Generation cast, is perhaps best known for killing Data, having that Picard clone (played by then relatively unknown Tom Hardy) and a bunch of ugly Remans as the Big Bads of the film. But what’s really shocking is to learn that Nemesis almost happened without any of the TNG cast.

After an exhaustive search that nobody heard much about, other than the casting sheet that circulated yesterday, David E. Kelley’s Wonder Woman TV series has landed its leading lady. And if you were a fan of the stellar Friday Night Lights, you’ll be rather pleased with the choice.
Adrienne Palicki, who stole hearts as Dillon High’s social magnet in Friday Night Lights—and who probably hopes you’ve forgotten her role as the pregnant mother who survives an angel-fight in the eminently forgettable Legion—has landed the multi-faceted role of Diana Prince/Diana Themyscira/Wonder Woman in NBC’s pilot.
Come this May, superheroes are going to be stepping all over each other on the big screen as Thor, Green Lantern, Captain America: The First Avenger and X-Men: First Class are all released in the brief span of three months. We’ve all seen their trailers and movie posters, and while some are more successful than others, let’s face it—so far none have generated the kind of heat that comes with a new installment of The Dark Knight or even the Iron Man movie.
While the Dawn of the Dead remake was the film that first made us take notice of Zack Snyder, his visceral adaptation of Frank Miller’s legendary graphic novel 300 made him a Hollywood heavyweight. So why isn’t he getting behind the camera for Xerxes, based on Miller’s ancient Greek follow-up?
Before Snyder got the nod from Warner Brothers and Christopher Nolan to take charge of the next Superman film, he was fully intending to write and direct Xerxes. But now, according to New York Magazine, the Xerxes gig has just been offered to Sherlock Holmes’ Guy Ritchie. So what happened?
It turns out there might be a previously undiscovered gas giant planet in our solar system. It’s four times larger than Jupiter, with colorful spots and bands. It has its own moons. Its name is Tyche. And we haven’t noticed it until now because it’s in the hypothetical Oort Cloud, which the University of Phoenix says may contain a trillion comets.
