I’m digging the way networks are dealing the with the summer season.  Instead of being inundated with rerun after rerun (hey, hey, hey hey!), we get a heaping serving of new shows. Last week, Burn Notice returned to the USA Network, and those that dig on vampires should have their appetite satiated following last nights series return. But what about other shows?  Take the jump to read a quick rundown of the rumors surfacing about a possible new Time Lord appearance in Doctor Who, Eureka gets a new girl, and a possible lesbian relationship on Heroes.

Why haven’t we seen any more Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movies in a while?  The rights reverted back to game creator Eidos a few years ago and apparently there has been a bidding war over which studio would pick up the franchise.  The Hollywood Reporter is noting Time Warner invested more money into the game company, which included the film rights.  Now the studio is trying to put something together for the next generation of movie goers. The new project, however, is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will

Word around H’wood this morning is that Mary Elizabeth Winstead (the cheerleader in Death Proof) is in negotiations to play the love interest of one Michael Cera in the big screen adaptation of Oni Press’ Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

As much as I really enjoy reading the adventures of Scott Pilgrim, I wonder how some of the material will translate (or not translate to the big screen) – especially
