DCTeen Titans

Sad news for fans of the current run of Teen Titans, as writer Sean McKeever has announced he is leaving the series after issue #71. Hey, everyone. A bit of good news/bad news for you. Which is which will depend upon your opinion of my work, I guess… I have decided to leave Teen Titans. My last issue will be #71. It’s been a wild ride for 22 issues (plus an Annual and Terror Titans)–sometimes good, sometimes bad, and often awesome. I’ve really come to care about these kids during my tenure, but now it’s time for me to place

I really don’t know what kind of chaos is going on with the Seth Rogen Green Hornet movie, but originally Stephen Chow was set to play the side-kick Kato, and direct the action/comedy.  Some sort of tussle over creative differences has Chow bowing out of the directing duties, but now it looks like Michel Gondry is in talks to step in.

Directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor have bowed out as the directors of DC Comics/Warner Bros. movie Jonah Hex.  The only reason given to the trades was creative differences.  Still attached to play the title character is Goonies star Josh Brolin (I hear he’s done some other stuff, too).   The studio is scrambling to find a new director (pick me, pick me). Neveldine and Taylor were the minds behind the most awesome kick-ass high octane movie Crank.  Imagine if the directing duo would have stuck with the Hex and brought that same energy the film. via Variety
