The news - Producer Edward Pressman says the script is finished and they've made an offer "to a major actor and things are moving ahead very aggressively, with the aim of doing the film this year." He also revealed more about their adaptation including differences from Proyas' version, mainly that this isn't just a remake of Proyas original film adaptation but rather an entire relaunch of the franchise, originally based on James O'Barr's comic book. Other things Pressman mentioned is how the setting will be in the Southwest and the actual crow will play a bigger part than it did in the original film.
The 2010 MTV Movie Awards
I've decided to stay away from the MTV Movie Awards since I realize it's going to be a Twi-fest, but I'm sure there will be some funny clips from the show that can be put online the next day.
As for funny clips that are online now, MTV has released two new promos for this year’s MTV Movie Awards featuring Tom Cruise’s popular character, Les Grossman, from the 2008 comedy "Tropic Thunder." In the promos, Grossman, whose profanity-laced outbursts were one of the best parts of "Tropic Thunder," offers hilariously questionable advice (and abuse) to the stars of the "Twilight" franchise, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.
The Pattinson one is quite hilarious while the Lautner one is...eh...not that great.
"Get Him to the Greek"
The news- You can watch the first five minutes of this film online, and from what I hear it's pretty funny and outrageous. I say this because I have decided not to watch it as I want this film to totally surprise me when I see it in theaters. You may choose your own fate.
The news- The first trailer has come out for this film and...it doesn't really look good. Expect it to make money though since it's a kid's flick.
