- Ibraheem Youssef has a striking new batch of minimalist movie posters up on his design blog. They're a bit too rich for my cheap blood, but if anyone is looking for an excuse to buy a complete stranger movie posters on the Internet (you know you are), my birthday is only a few days away...
- Bill Murray explains to GQ precisely how all the Ghostbusters 3 talk began, how it nearly came to be, and how he still hasn't 100% said no to to the idea. The saga of will-he, won't-he continues.
- I wasn't a fan of production designer David Hackl's directorial debut, Saw V (I think it's the worst of the series) I am, however, a fan of killer bear movies, so I'm quite intrigued to see what Hackl does with The Red Machine, which The Wrap tells us is about "two estranged brothers who go on a camping trip and are continuously attacked by an erratic bear that has lost its fear of humans."
- The official Tron Legacy iPhone app comes packed with a few single and multiplayer games as is, but it also comes equipped with a hidden message that reads "This TRON app will evolve. ComiTRON coming 072210". So if you're heading to Comic-Con later in the week, you may want to pop this on your phone ahead of time.
- It's all very early at this point, but the UK's Daily Mail points out that Mickey Rourke would like to star in and produce a biopic based on the life of Gareth Thomas, an openly gay rugby player from Wales. With no screenwriters or directors involved at this stage, it certainly sounds like Rourke simply met Thomas and decided he had a life worth making a moving about, but I'm definitely intrigued. At the very least, reading about how intensely Rourke studies and prepares for the role should be very interesting.
- Adam McKay confirms that while Paramount has given the ax to Anchorman 2, Step Brothers 2 is still a viable possibility. That's great news to me, as the latter is one of the few Will Ferrell roles in recent years that I've thoroughly enjoyed. I'd be totally game for seeing him opposite John C. Reilly at the f**king Catalina Wine Mixer once again.
- I'm unfamiliar with Eric Powell's comic series, The Goon, but this Comic-Con preview of what to expect has me wanting to check it out as soon as possible. Paul Giammatti and Clancy Brown voicing zombie-fighting gents in an animated film produced by David Fincher? Where do I sign up?
