Odds and ends from Tuesday:
- Seems like Michelle Yeoh is a busy girl as of late: Just the other day, we reported her signing on to star in True North for director Asif Kapadia. Now, it appears Yeoh will also hitch a ride alongside Vin Diesel in Babylon A.D. In the pic, she'll play a nun who takes care of a young girl that might be infected with a deadly virus. And no, I don't believe it's a case of Diesel-itis.
- Rolling Stones frontman (aka the guy with the groovy lips) Mick Jagger is set to co-produce an animated film (along with EuropaCorp) called Ruby Tuesday which, according to the Hollywood Reporter, will include 12 songs from the band. Pic is set to begin production later this year and will revolve around a "single mother searching for happiness in New York." I don't know about you, but an animated flick featuring a ton of music from the Rolling Stones makes me the brown sugar in my blood boil with excitement.
- We've talked so much about the flick Jumper here on Cinematical, I figured it was only right to share with you the first set pics from the film. Directed by Doug Liman, pic stars Samuel L. Jackson as an NSA agent put in charge of tracking a kid (Hayden Christensen) who has the ability to teleport places. Pictured above: Sam Jackson ... from the future! That's right, even in the future he's still a cool dude.
