Battlestar GalacticaBryan SingerMoviesUniversal Pictures

The Hollywood Reporter is circulating news that BrYan Singer has been tapped by Universal Pictures to produce and direct the big screen adaptation of Battlestar Galactica.  Thanks to a power outage, and a two-year-old who fills up the TiVo with crap children’s programming, I’ve not had a chance to watch the final four episodes of the series, so I have no idea if Singer jumping on board for a movie franchise is a good idea or not. There is no script for the new “Galactica,” though insiders have said the feature is to be a complete reimaginging and will stand

Twilight fans are nothing compared to the throngs of people who flock to every panel appearance by B-movie actor Bruce Campbell.  He’s there again getting the crowds to eat out of his hands, and on the Burn Notice panel, a bit of news was dropped that may have fans flocking to the DVD section of their local store. According to network insiders, USA is talking with Fox, which makes the series, about producing a straight-to-DVD prequel that would cover Axe’s adventures before his attempts to help his best friend, blacklisted spy Michael Westen. The panelists also said they have been

Futurama

This news started floating around on Friday, and it is going to be pretty bad if it’s the case, but when (and if) Futurama returns to the airwaves, it may not features the voices we’ve grown to love over the years.  Why?  Money, pure and simple.  Contract negotiations between Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche and Tress MacNeille and the studio have broken down causing the cast to find themselves out of jobs.  20th Century Fox wants to pay the actors only $75,000 per episode, while the cast believes they deserve more. As a result, 20th has put

Surprisingly, X-Men Origins: Wolverine took the top spot at the box office this weekend, bringing in $87 million in the domestic box office – much higher than 20th Century Fox expected.  Guess that kinda blows those piracy concerns out of the water, although some insiders are suggesting that the early leak of the film did cost the studio around 20 million smackers. Today’s art appreciation moment of the day comes from Mario Espinoza, who’s whipped up this radically distorted view of the overexposed hero. I like it because it is kind of the inverse Humberto Ramos – small feet, big

Ain’t It Cool News is reporting that the comedy duo of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been cast as Thomson and Thompson, the detective duo in Steven Spielberg/Peter Jackson’s 3D Tintin movie.  The site’s announcement also included Andy Serkis as Captain Haddock, with more confirmed actors expected to be announced soon. I would normally say, “File this under rumor,” but considering the huge number of insiders AICN has in the industry, this is more than likely information that is spot on.  Any H’wood Insiders wanna be the Major Spoilers inside guy?  You know who to contact… The movie is
