    Famke Janssen on X-Men 3
    Source: ComingSoon!
    ComingSoon.net talked to Hide and Seek star Famke Janssen about the status of X-Men 3. Janssen plays Jean Grey in the 20th Century Fox franchise based on the Marvel characters.

    Asked whether or not she will be back, Janssen said, "Don't know quite yet, but probably... I've heard things and they're developing the script right now, Dark Phoenix is part of that script."

    Bryan Singer, who directed the first two "X-Men" movies, won't be back for the third as he's preparing to start filming Superman in March. Janssen says she'll miss him this time around. "I would, yes. I think he made those movies."

    Janssen also addressed which cast members may return. "Some people are because of signed contracts, and some people can renegotiate. So I'm sure it has to do with a lot of different things. I'm not contractually obligated. I wouldn't want to do a sequel for the sake of a sequel. Hopefully there's a good director involved or the character is fun to play."

    There have been rumors that the third story will involve her character's transformation into Dark Phoenix. "I've heard things like that," she adds, "but at the same time I'm realistic about knowing that they're going to have to give a bunch of people a good chunk of the movie for them to want to come back. And then there's going to be new characters introduced, so it's always a little tricky. If it's anybody's movie ever, it's going to be Wolverine's movie because that's the number one X-Men character. But we'll see. From what I've heard? Yes, she's a big part of it."

    Watch the First 5 Minutes of Elektra
    Source: ComingSoon!
    Yahoo! Movies has posted the first five minutes of 20th Century Fox's Elektra, opening Friday, January 14th.

    Not long after recovering from seemingly mortal wounds, Elektra (Jennifer Garner) has severed all ties with the world, living only for her next assignment. But in an unexpected turn of events, she is forced to make a decision that can take her life in a new direction – or destroy her.

    Key players in Elektra's journey are Stick, a blind martial arts master responsible for Elektra's "resurrection," and Mark Miller and Abby Miller, a father and daughter on the run from The Hand, a powerful syndicate whose members practice the dark martial art of ninjitsu.

    Disney and Jackman to Make Musicals
    Source: ComingSoon!
    Disney has made a nonexclusive deal to develop multiple theatrical musicals for Hugh Jackman to produce and star in, reports Variety. The deal came after Disney toppers Dick Cook and Nina Jacobson saw Jackman in Broadway's "The Boy From Oz."

    The trade says that Jackman has formed a company with new partner John Palermo, Bryan Singer's assistant on X-Men, and they will be joined in the venture by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who executive produced the feature version of Chicago and are producing Hairspray.

    "As an art form, the musical is Mount Everest. Tough to pull off, but exhilarating and timeless when it works. And when it is done badly, it stinks to high heaven," Jackman said from the set of Darren Aronofsky's The Fountain.

    Jackman and Palermo will also cut their teeth as producers by getting involved in X-Men 3 as well as a Wolverine spinoff feature Troy screenwriter David Benioff is writing at 20th Century Fox.

    Jackman said Disney will develop as many as three projects at the same time. That may include a remake, though he hopes not.

    USA Today has posted a report from the 16th annual Palm Springs Film Festival, which took place Saturday night. At the event, Liam Neeson and Samuel L. Jackson both revealed a spoiler about Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith:
    Star Wars alums Neeson and Jackson both offered hints that George Lucas has shot a top-secret cameo of Neeson as Qui-Gon Jinn's ghost, à la Alec Guinness, for May's Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. "I can't speak about it," Neeson joked. "Jedi code of ethics."

    McG's production company Wonderland Sound & Vision has teamed up with James Stern's Endgame Entertainment to co-produce horror film Stay Alive. According to Variety, the movie is expected to start shooting in March in New Orleans.

    To be directed by Brent Bell, Stay Alive is about a group of New Orleans teens who play an online horror video game; as their characters die in the game, the players die also.

    The film was written by Bell with Matthew Peterman. Video game producer American McGee will design all the game effects for the movie and consult on its production. Morris Paulson's Base 2 Studios will handle visual effects for the project.

    Wonderland is developing Revenge of the Nerds, Hot Wheels, and Evel Knievel.

    Henson & WB to Adapt Witch's Children
    Source: ComingSoon!
    Jim Henson Pictures has teamed with Warner Bros. Pictures to adapt 2001 children's book The Witch's Children, written by the British team of Ursula Jones and illustrator Russell Ayto, reports Variety.

    First published in the U.S. in 2003 by Henry Holt, "Children" started out a simple picture book about some misadventures caused when the magic of several witches-in-training goes off half-cocked.

    But Henson Pictures producers Lisa Henson and Kristine Belson (Good Boy!) were taken with a more sophisticated pitch from Laws of Attraction screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna - What happens when a single-mother witch decamps from her magical and somewhat morally suspect realm to raise her brood in the safer, more kid-friendly suburbs?

    Ricky Gervais in Mission: Impossible 3?
    Source: ComingSoon!
    UK tabloid the Daily Mirror is reporting that The Office creator/star Ricky Gervais may star alongside Tom Cruise in Paramount's Mission: Impossible 3, targeted for a summer 2006 release.

    The newspaper says Gervais agreed to take a role in the second sequel after meeting the international star when he picked up two Golden Globe Awards last year.

    "I greatly admire the director Jeffrey Abrams and Tom Cruise is the greatest film star of our generation. It should be fun," Gervais was quoted as saying.

    Gervais now hopes to hire Cruise for a cameo role in his new comedy Extras about a struggling actor. Jude Law will also appear in one episode.

    The 43-year-old has also finished writing a script for an episode of The Simpsons.

    Avi Arad Talks About Hulk 2
    Source: SuperheroHype!

    Scooper 'Kevin Roegele' tells us that Avi Arad talked to Total Film magazine about Hulk 2:

    Bigger action, smaller Hulk in sequel says Avi Arad.

    February's Total Film magazine features some new information from Marvel's Avi Arad. He confirms that Hulk 2 is in progress, and a few intruiging changes that will be made from the first film.
    "In the next movie, Hulk 2, the Hulk will be smaller. If you make him 15-feet tall, there's no human connection there.....Right now we are still developing the sequel. I think the key thing is to come up with the right story."
    The article also says we are promised, 'less angst and a lot more Hulk smashing,' and that Bruce Banner will become more comfortable with his big green side.

    Batman Begins Super Bowl Spot Description?!
    Source: SuperheroHype!
    We have no way of confirming the following at this moment, but according to an anonymous scooper this is what you'll be seeing on CBS during the Super Bowl on February 6th.

    I saw some "raw" footage of Batman Begins the other day which is a preview that we'll get to see during the superbowl. it has a 1:15 running time.

    It starts out in the darkness-smoke appears-footsteps-a swish of a cape.

    clips of bruce-ducard-batman disappearing over a ledge at night. superfast, within one second. the music is of tim burtons batman i believe.

    Black screen-nararator talks

    "Some say hes a legend"

    Bruce voiceover while we are shown ice swordfight. "the good people need something to rally behind." Bruce finishes as we see in him a plane.

    Batman buckles his belt-half a second shot

    Bruce finishes his sentence in the plane-"and the bad to fear".

    Lights flicker on a black screen-the batcave.

    Alfred sees it-"charming".(sarcastic).

    Quick clip of batman swinging.

    black screen- nararator: some say, hes a ghost.

    We see Rachel* turn around to face us. she's in a dress.

    Bruce(v.o.)rachel, this isn't the real me.

    Quick clips, all within a second, of a bald asian man leaping with a sword, a ton of ninjas getting read. both were in the last trailer.

    Clip of two kids running in a greenhouse*

    Ducard draws his sword-Batman stand high, cape blowing the wind.

    Black screen-nararator: some say he fights for justice.

    Batman punches two thugs. We then see Gordon*-"This man brought down the biggest crime lord in town"-clip of Batman leaping off a building.

    Black screen-nararator: others, for revenge.

    The tumbler roars-bruce is in it: does it come in black?

    Bruce does a back flip of a table, batman throws a batarang into the camera. A building explodes(was in last trailer). Batman runs along the rooftops. Batman englufs a thug in darkness. Bruce walks around with two good looking women.

    Batman pulls his cowl on.

    Nararator: noone has seen his face

    Batman is in a dark alley with Gordon-
    Gordon: Ill give you my car-
    Batman: I brought mine-

    Lights flash-the batmobile ROARS by the screen-its a cool shot.

    The batmobile blows through a wall-

    Nararator: But everyone...shall know his name.

    Batman starts to look up-bruce sword fights-batman head keeps rising-car explodes on the street-batman finishes looking up. we see his face.

    MAN: Who in the hell are you?

    Batman: I'm batman.

    Suddenly the music from pirates of the caribean (the fast paced music) kicks in. Its all clips now. first the batmobile rides over the camera, batman, on fire, flys out a window, Batman kicks two thugs, batman swings over the city in his cape-the batmobile smashes into a car-a huge train roars into a building-

    Were in a huge dark-old room. A thug says "but he's just one man". Creame* v.o.s "He's not just one man, he has a talent for disruption". He voice overs it as we see cops stumble upon a man creating the batsignal at night-hes tied to the spotlight.

    A train car explodes as the one infront of keeps going-batman hangs onto the top of the train as his legs dangle-batman free swings over the city-smashes through an awning and goes between two cars.

    We see Creame-he could be anywhere-

    Batman glides down a large stairwell in very dramatic dive-his wings unfold.

    two guys slides down the ice-a oil tanker partially explodes-batman, carrying rachel, swings upwards towards the camera.

    Words-CHRISTIAN BALE

    Bruce GLARES hard at someone-

    Words-Liam Neeson

    Duvard sword fights

    Words-Katie Holmes

    Rachel runs

    Words-Morgan Freeman

    Morgan looks at us from a chair.

    words: and michael caine

    Alfred peers up.

    Batman swings-batman flies through a fire-batman knees someone in the face-Bruce punches ducard while a place burns around him-

    words BATMAN BEGINS

    words: Are you ready to begin?

    The screen is black-it opens up two be two elevator doors and the scarecrow sprays gas at the screen and we shoot to: JUNE 17TH

    "Fockers" Shushes "White Noise"
    Source: E!Online


    Meet the Fockers remained on top of the box office for the third weekend in a row, earning an estimated $28.5 million from Friday to Sunday to bring the dysfunctional family comedy's gross to a whopping $204.3 million.


    White Noise, a new horror mystery starring ex-Batman and onetime Mr Mom Michael Keaton as an architect with I-hear-dead-people problems, was shushed into second place. But its $24 million was earned at considerably fewer theaters, giving it the per-screen-average victory among wide releases. At 2,261 theaters, White Noise averaged $10,615 despite being slammed by critics, while Meet the Fockers, the amazingly successful sequel to Meet the Parents, averaged $8,081 at 3,527 theaters.

    The Fockers' three-peat and the combined one-two top listing was good news for Universal, the studio which released both PG-13 movies, which together attracted 53 percent of ticket sales over the weekend, according to Sunday estimates compiled by Exhibitor Relations.

    With none of the top 10 movies dropping off over 50 percent from the previous weekend, distributors didn't have too much to complain about. Combined business for the top 12 movies was down 21 percent from last weekend, but that's understandable given that the holiday season is over, school is back in session, and NFL football playoffs dominate television, and the $98.2 million overall gross was actually 8 percent higher than this time last year.

    Fox executive Richard Myerson felt business for his studio's Fat Albert was "fantastic" in its third week, particularly on Saturday when its core audience of family and teens bought tickets, boosting sales more than 100 percent over Friday night's take. The PG-rated live-action comedy take on the TV 'toon earned $6 million at 2,675 sites. It dropped just 41 percent and one slot to fifth place, behind multiple Golden Globe nominee and probable Oscar contender The Aviator's $7.6 million in third and rival kid flick Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which earned $7.4 million in fourth.

    In limited release, the National Society of Film Critics' Best Picture winner and another of the potential major Oscar contenders Million Dollar Baby, Clint Eastwood's female boxing drama starring Hilary Swank, expanded from nine screens to 109 in its fourth week, consequently gaining 640 percent for an estimated $2 million on a per-site average of $18,440.

    Another big challenger in the awards game, Sideways, won't expand until the end of this month, after the Golden Globes have been handed out and the Oscar nominations announced. The wine-quaffing, road-tripping, midlife-crisis-suffering buddy comedy, now in its 12th week of release dropped 7 percent, earning about $2 million with a per-screen average of $5,479 at just 365 locations, five fewer than last weekend.

    Gaining from expansion was yet another Oscar wannabe, the fact-based drama Hotel Rwanda starring Don Cheadle. Adding 98 locations to play at 105, the MGM/UA release gained 708 percent, earning $1.1 million from a $10,952 per-screen average, .

    Here's a rundown of the top 10 films based on preliminary studio figures; final tallies will be released Monday:

    1. Meet the Fockers, $28.5 million
    2. White Noise, $24 million
    3. The Aviator, $7.6 million
    4. Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, $7.4 million
    5. Fat Albert, $6 million
    6. Ocean's Twelve, $5.4 million
    7. National Treasure, $4.47 million
    8. Spanglish, $4.4 million
    9. Andrew Lloyd Weber's The Phantom of the Opera, $3.4 million
    10. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, $2.6 million

    AUDIOSLAVE: Sophomore Album Due In June - Jan. 7, 2005
    Source: Blabbermouth

    A source at Epic Records has exclusively told The Zone that the second album from AUDIOSLAVE will arrive in June. Singer Chris Cornell, guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk have been working on the follow-up to their 2002 debut since last year, and Morello said he couldn't be more excited about the results. "It sounds awesome," he said. "It's a ridiculously rocking record, and I think it far surpasses the first one, which I loved. I thought the first record was great, but we've really gelled as a band and, you know, having a year of touring under our belts, we've become and kind of grown into ourselves as a band. It sounds awesome."

    More information about the record, including its title and a specific release date, is not yet available.

    AUDIOSLAVE's self-titled debut disc has sold over two million copies. The band has an unusual record label arrangement: because vocalist Chris Cornell, formerly of SOUNDGARDEN, was signed to Interscope Records, that company issued AUDIOSLAVE's debut. But since the other members of the group were signed to Epic when they were in RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, that label gets to release the second AUDIOSLAVE disc. Future releases from AUDIOSLAVE will continue to flip between the two labels.

    New Line's "Next Big Trilogy"
    Source: Moviehole

    The Los Angeles Times has an interesting article up today about what New Line are doing now that Frodo has turfed the ring.

    Their big hope is another trilogy, the far less well-known "His Dark Materials," by British author Philip Pullman.

    The studio has committed to producing only the first of Pullman's bestselling novels. "The Golden Compass," a special-effects-driven fantasy, could cost more than $150 million to bring to the screen. If it's successfull, then, the studio may consider doing the two other stories.

    Studio co-chairman Michael Lynne believes the studio has a winner on their hands with this new potential trilogy. "If you create something of historic proportions with historic economic returns and you find a project of scale that you want to invest in," Lynne said, "no one is going to tell you not to do it."

    Chris Weitz was attached to direct the first film, but dropped out saying the project was too fat for his liking. "I didn't feel like I was willing to undertake the sheer scale of this," he said. "It's a remarkably daunting challenge for me."

    Rolf Mittweg, New Line's head of worldwide distribution and marketing, said the global popularity of the "His Dark Materials" books provided a good foundation for a major film. "There is tremendous box-office potential in properties whose appeal stretches beyond the borders of the United States," Mittweg said.

    The first book, "The Golden Compass," follows the adventures of a 12-year-old orphan who goes on a magical journey in search of a kidnapped friend and discovers secrets of her own past, her world and parallel universes. The story features witches, angels, talking polar bears and "daemons" — animals that serve as each human character's alter ego.

    The article also mentions that they're waiting for Chris Tucker to say yes to a script for "Rush Hour 3". What the heck is the guy waiting for?! You'd think it'd be Jackie Chan they'd have to convince. Anyway, that's scrawled on their schedule too. Brett Ratner returns to helm.

    No Jedi for Jim
    Source:Moviehole
    Samuel L.Jackson has turned down a role in Director Jim Sheridan's next pic - because it's set to star controversial rapper 50 Cent.

    Jackson, soon to flap his saber around in Episode III, says he was thrilled when he heard out that the "In America" director wanted him for a new movie - until he found out he'd be sharing the screen with the rapper.

    Jackson, via Contact Music, says, "Hollywood people tend to think that because one is successful in one aspect of entertainment they can bring them into this particular world and make a success out of them. They ask people like me to be in a film with those people that they are kind of headlining and your name ends up behind them.

    "If you do that, it sanctions the fact that these people come into this world and you think they are worthy of you sharing your time on screen with them. I don't particularly think that.

    "A month or so ago, someone called me about the 50 Cent movie and I'm like, 'What are you calling me for?' I don't even need to read that because that's not something I want to do.

    "I like listening to 50 Cent and I can groove to his music but I don't want to groove to him on screen, just yet. Maybe if he does five movies and he shows some talent.

    "I mean how does he get to work with Jim Sheridan and I don't. What is it about 50 Cent that makes Jim Sheridan say, 'I'd really like to make a movie with him.'"

    He'll be tasty-cheesed when he finds out Ashlee Simpson's doing the soundtrack.
