For those of you that think vampires have grown a bit too soft and emo these days, you might be excited to hear that Vinnie Jones has signed on to star in "The Bleeding". Vinnie Jones; vampire hunter? Sounds good to me.

Screenwriter Akiva Golddman, responsible for such films as "I Am Legend" and "Batman and Robin" bring news of a new version of "Swamp Thing" is in development.

Instead, you can dredge up a whole new host of fears as the Weinsteins opt to go with a "Scary Movie" reboot. "Scary Movie 1: Again". Nothing snarky here, I'm just going to let that one soak in a bit.

The bear was eventually tranquilized and is doing fine. Yes, I'm okay. No, I haven't been to Minnesota anytime in the past few days.
