Stephen King is finally releasing an audiobook for his 1979 novel The Dead Zone, and he's getting James Franco to voice it. Bloody Disgusting says this will be the second time the two have worked together as Franco previously starred in the adaptation of King's 11.22.63. If I were to write a list of two seemingly normal guys who give me the willies, these two top the list so I'm definitely interested to see how this turns out! Pick up Franco's reading of The Dead Zone April 25th.
For those that don't remember the book that well...here's the synopsis:
In The Dead Zone, Johnny Smith awakens from a five-year coma after his car accident and discovers that he can see people’s futures and pasts when he touches them. Many consider his talent a gift; Johnny feels cursed. His fiancé married another man during his coma and people clamor for him to solve their problems.
When Johnny has a disturbing vision after he shakes the hand of an ambitious and amoral politician, he must decide if he should take drastic action to change the future.

Earlier this year we learned that Man of Steel and Batman v Superman screenwriter David S. Goyer was brought in to write the script for Warner Bros. Green Lantern Corps with Justin Rhodes. Now a new rumor suggests that Goyer could actually end up directing the movie.
The news comes from The Tracking Board reporter Jeff Sneider during a recent episode of Meet the Movie Press, which is the podcast that he co-hosts. Here's what he said about it:
“I’m hearing David Goyer could very well wind up directing Green Lantern Corps himself. When you look at screenwriters that are taking the plunge and directing these movies themselves, we saw rumors last month that Simon Kinberg was going to direct the next X-Men movie. David Goyer is responsible for this entire DC Universe, he wrote Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He wrote Man of Steel, he is the architect, if you will. He is writing and producing Green Lantern Corps, so it’s just very well, what I have heard, one of those situations where he could be like ‘Listen, I think I may be the best guy for the job, nobody knows this like I do.'”
Goyer has been hit or miss with me on the screenplays he's written. His best work comes from his work with Christopher Nolan on the Dark Knight films. Goyer has directed a few films in his careers such as Blade Trinity, The Unborn, and The Invisible which were all very mediocre films.
I've gotta say, Goyer definitely wouldn't be my first, second, or third choice to direct Green Lantern Corps. I think WB can do better, but I assume he's pushing to direct it and with the relationship he has with the studio, they might actually give him the gig. We'll see. As of right now, this is just a rumor.
What do you think of Goyer possibly coming in to helm Green Lantern Corps for WB? Do you think he could do a good job with it?
It Looks Like GREEN LANTERN CORPS Could Be Directed by David S. Goyer
Another behind-the-scenes featurette has been released for director Rupert Sanders' Ghost in the Shell, and it focuses on the creation of the iconic shelling sequence of the story. It's pretty awesome to see all the detailed and intricate work that went into bringing this scene to life with both practical effects and CG technology.
Ghost in the Shell follows the Major (Scarlett Johansson), a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic’s advancements in cyber technology.
The movie is set to be released in theaters on March 31.

Is Harrison Ford an asshole? The correct answer is, "Who cares?" Whether he is or not, he's certainly earned the right to be after years in iconic roles for Hollywood. Adam Sandler recognizes that, and even calls him an incredible man as he recounts a story in which Ford asked him to wash his car. Check it out below.

Logan director James Mangold is on board to direct an NYPD TV Drama for Fox. Variety tells us The Force centers around a corrupt NYPD sergeant who is faced with tough decisions regarding his career, his family, and his life. The series itself will be an adaptation of an upcoming novel by Don Winslow, which will hit shelves in June.
No release date yet for the series or when we can expect it out, but with Mangold's success with Logan still fresh, Fox is using the director to promote what they can. If the series is even half as good as Logan I think we'll all be satisfied!

We've known for awhile now already that Sylvester Stallone will have a part to play in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We now have new details on his role, and we've also learned that Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum will also be in the film. Each of the actors will play "very important" characters from the Marvel Universe.
Gunn was recently a guest on The Adam Carolla Show, and that's where he made the big teasing reveal, saying:
"We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel Universe who are going to make their debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which people don't know about. Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters...my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent movie in the role as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly's character."
I have absolutely no idea who these characters could be or if they will play a part in any other the other upcoming MCU films. Whoever they are, it seems like they will be working together in some way.
It's pretty cool to learn that Rosenbaum will be in the movie, though! That guy is easily one of my favorite versions of Lex Luthor. He was just so awesome in that role! I can't wait to see who he's playing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
It's been previously rumored that Stallone could be Nova Corps member, but it might be more than that. Do you have any theories on who Stallone and Rosenbaum could be playing?

Fans of Studio Ghibli's 2001 animated film Spirited Away are going to love this! It's a piggy bank based on the magical No-Face spirit character from the film. It's called the Spirited Away No Face Munching Piggy Bank, and it eats the coin put on his plate and then burps. According to Rocket News:
No Face lets out his signature “Ah…ah…” phrase, and music from the movie begins to play as the dish of coins moves towards its mouth. No Face’s teeth are revealed, the coins are consumed and the spirit lets out a glorious burp at the end of its rich meal.
The No-Face bank was developed by Benelic, which is the company behind the official Studio Ghibli merchandise sold at Japan’s Donguri Kyowakoku chain of stores. If you want to order one, head on over to Cafe de Donguri, where you can buy the bank for a limited time until May 18th.

For those of you who are looking for a perfectly badass Han Solo jacket, Anovos has exactly what you're looking for! This jacket is awesome, and you just have to fork over $500 to get it. The Han Solo jacket is currently available for pre-order and will ship later this year.
Anovos specializes in the creation and distribution of insanely detailed Star Wars costume gear, and if you're a Han Solo fan, this is a jacket that is definitely a tempting purchase. I'll admit, I want one really bad, and I want to buy it! Unfortunately, I just don't have the $500 dollars it would take to make the purchase.
The jacket was created using references from the original screen-used jacket, and it’s made of genuine leather with a satin lining. Here are all the details:
Smuggler. Scoundrel. Hero. Han Solo, captain of the Millennium Falcon, was one of the great leaders of the Rebel Alliance. He now defiantly sports a nerf-hide jacket after once being called a “scruffy-looking nerf-herder” by General Leia Organa. ANOVOS is proud to offer the STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Han Solo Jacket. This is not a toy. Not suitable for children. Pre-order items are subject to change in availability and features.
This STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS™ costume accessory was recreated using the original patterns teamed with measurements and reference taken from the original screen-used production asset.
This Is the Best Han Solo Jacket That $500 Can Buy!
Jeff Daniels is set to star in an upcoming 9/11 series being developed at Hulu called The Looming Tower. The 10-episode drama is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book, which "tracks the rising threat of Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda and examines how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedy as well as the subsequent war in Iraq."
Sounds like this is going to be an intense series that sparks some conversation. According to THR, Daniels will play John O'Neill, "the determined, bull-headed chief of the New York FBI’s Counter-Terrorism unit." The description goes on to say:
The character is rightly convinced that the U.S. has been targeted for attack by Al-Qaeda, and faces deliberately insufficient cooperation from other facets of the federal government, particularly from his counterpart at the frequently antagonistic CIA. A man of appetites, O’Neill is a lover of expensive food and drink, and is involved with at least two girlfriends, neither of whom know about his wife and children.
The series is being written by Dan Futterman (Foxcatcher, Capote), who is also an executive producer. The project is being developed through Legendary Television, and it's certainly going to make for a compelling series.
This seems like the perfect project for Daniels to take on. He's currently set to star in Steven Soderberg's Netflix series Godless, and is currently in production on the film The Catcher Was a Spy. Here's the description of the book that the series is based on:
A gripping narrative that spans five decades, The Looming Tower explains in unprecedented detail the growth of Islamic fundamentalism, the rise of al-Qaeda, and the intelligence failures that culminated in the attacks on the World Trade Center. Lawrence Wright re-creates firsthand the transformation of Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri from incompetent and idealistic soldiers in Afghanistan to leaders of the most successful terrorist group in history. He follows FBI counterterrorism chief John O’Neill as he uncovers the emerging danger from al-Qaeda in the 1990s and struggles to track this new threat. Packed with new information and a deep historical perspective, The Looming Tower is the definitive history of the long road to September 11.

"The Robbery" is a wonderfully amusing and messed up short film that follows a young woman's casual attempt to rob a convenient store. As you'll see, everything goes horribly wrong and things unexpectedly escalate into complete craziness. It's pretty damn entertaining.
The short comes from directorJim Cummings and co-writer Dustin Hahn, who was inspired by an experience one of his childhood friends. Cummings talked about that saying, “He took a cab to rob a liquor store and it went south. I said, ‘Jesus, what does that even look like?’ Dustin said, ‘Drugs… New Jersey.’” That 's exactly what you get in this short film.
The short was screened at Sundance earlier this year, and now it's available for everyone to enjoy. Check it out!

Megan Leavey tells the inspiring true story of a Marine in the U.S. military and the bond that she forms with her bomb sniffing combat dog. I'm normally not into films about dogs, but this one actually looks pretty good and it has a solid cast with Kate Mara in the title role. If you're a dog lover, I'm sure this is a movie you'll want to check out. Here's the synopsis:
Based on the true life story of a young marine corporal whose unique discipline and bond with her military combat dog saved many lives during their deployment in Iraq. When she is assigned to clean up the K9 unit after a disciplinary hearing, Leavey identifies with a particularly aggressive dog, Rex, and is given the chance to train him. Over the course of their service, Megan and Rex completed more than 100 missions until an IED explosion injures them, putting their fate in jeopardy.
The rest of the cast includes Edie Falco, Common, Bradley Whitford, Ramon Rodriguez, and Geraldine James. The movie is set to be released on June 9th.

Our friends at We Got This Covered released a fan-made trailer for Batman v Superman that was made in the same style as the trailer for Logan.

This has to be one of the most ridiculous/hilarious Hollywood pranks I've ever seen. A German man managed to fool producers of the prestigious Goldene Kamera Awards that he was Ryan Gosling and there to accept an award the show had prepared for La La Land. The reactions from celebrities like Nicole Kidman and Jane Fonda are hilarious...Colin Farrell looks pissed.
So how does Germany's biggest film awards show screw up this badly? Well, the German pranksters organized the demands for Gosling's appearance so that he was seen very little prior to him actually appearing on stage. He didn't walk the red carpet and was surrounded by handlers and others who masked his appearance until it was time for him to be on stage. Looks like The Oscars doesn't have to be so embarrassed anymore, right?
