- We saw the cover of Entertainment Weekly earlier with Ryan Reynolds costumed up for The Green Lantern, but now we've got some more images from the magazine's first look at the DC Comics adaptation. Check out the full gallery below.
- Speaking of cheap thrills, seems at least one of the many old Janis Joplin biopics is back on track, now with Amy Adams instead of Zooey Deschanel in the lead as the substance-abusing singer. FearNet had the scoop in an interview with producer Wyck Godfrey, while Deadline has confirmed it. And turns out the great Fernando Meirelles (City of God) will be at the helm. I wonder if he'll focus a lot of the film on her romantic 1970 sobriety vacation to Rio. That'd be the only appropriate angle for Adams, too.
- Fans of Upright Citizen Brigade, especially co-founder Matt Walsh, will be excited to learn he's directing an improvised stoner comedy called High Road, featuring a plethora of great but lesser-known comedy talent, including Lizzy Caplan, Rob Riggle, Horatio Sanz, Abby Elliot, Joe Lo Truglio, Zach Woods and others.
- Though documentarian Joe Berlinger is "extremely pleased" with the ruling that he only has to share with Chevron a limited amount of footage shot for his film Crude, I'm still somewhat annoyed that his material wasn't completely protected from being subpoenaed.
- Here's a trailer for The Town, which was written and directed by and stars Ben Affleck. Also starring in the crime thriller is Jeremy Renner, Jon Hamm, Rebecca Hall, Chris Cooper, Blake Lively, a whole bunch of machine guns and, most importantly Boston (as well as its Red Sox). It sure as heck ain't Good Will Hunting. And it's got a lot more action than Gone, Baby, Gone, too.
