If there's any chick in Hollywood today who I could see aligning herself with Charlie Manson, it’s Lindsay Lohan. So it’s not too surprising that word came down the wire today that Lohan has officially joined a cult called Manson Girls and … Oh, wait, that’s the title of a movie.
I still can’t bring myself to care too much about the upcoming X-Files 2, but I know you guys do and I’m here to serve.

Oscar nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen) didn’t always write touching dramas about royalty; at one point he penned a ghostly script called Hereafter, and Dreamworks has optioned the script for a low seven figures. I doubt that includes decimal points...

After reporting just the other day about FYE/Suncoast getting an exclusive edition of Cloverfield encased in steel (“Cloverfield’s Crushed DVD” – March 2008), it’s not too surprising that it won’t be the only flick getting the treatment in the coming weeks.
In a Variety story this morning about a new comedy script being optioned called Underage, it was officially announced that the upcoming remake of the Korean smash A Tale of Two Sisters is now being called The Uninvited.
Though we’ve yet to see his debut film, Trick ‘r Treat thanks to some very odd decisions form Warner Bros., director Michael Dougherty is prepping his next movie, an animated adventure called Calling All Robots, and damnit I’m excited for it.
Sometimes you read about an actor being cast in a role and you wonder what the hell the filmmakers were thinking. For example, when I read there was a new movie about the infamous Boston Strangler starring David Faustino, best known as Bud Bundy on "Married With Children", I immediately thought we were all being punk'd. Nope, it's for real.
