Few details have been released around the Ben Affleck fronted retelling of Stephen King's "The Stand" but today it looks like the project finally has a writer. "Blood Creek" writer David Kajganich has been tapped to take on the task of adapting King's book, which has already been made into a TV series so my guess is he'll just find that script and do the old "save as" in Microsoft word and call it a day. That's what I'd do anyway. Maybe take out any reference to Molly Ringwald.
If you've been sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for more details on the Tom Cruise alien battle flick "Oblivion" then today is your lucky day. It's been confirmed that both Andrea Riseborough and Olga Kurylenko have signed on to the cast, one playing his current girlfriend and the other playing the women he falls for. God I can't wait to find out which is which. I hope Olga wins his heart, only because her name is Olga though. You don't mess with an Olga.
I fancy myself a big Disneyworld fan and an uber Haunted Mansion buff so I'm as giddy as a little school girl at at some of the new collectibles Disney will be releasing this year at their parks. Namely a new kick ass Haunted Mansion time piece that's a bargain at any price and makes a great birthday gift for the special BGH news writer in your life. That's me, I'm that person, in case you were wondering.
Lastly it looks like Thomas Jane, Billy Bob Thornton and James Marsden have all been cast in a new flick titled "Red Machine". The movie focuses on two estranged brothers who try to patch up their relationship during a camping trip with their signification others. Unfortunately for them though they end up being stalked by a killer bear. So we've now got Billy Bob Thornton battling bears. Your move, Liam Neeson fighting wolves.
Pop quiz, what's your favorite Ray Kay video? Trick question! The answer is none because he's the mastermind behind videos for Justin Beiber, Willow Smith and Lady Gaga. I fooled you didn't I? Well he's been handed the keys to a new thriller titled "Paranormalcy" which follows a teen who works for a paranormal agency who finds she might be in the middle of a plot to destroy all paranormal entities. Wait would that be a bad thing? Will there be a meat suit? So many questions and so few answers.
Harry Potter director David Yates and scribe Steve Kloves will reunite to create a trilogy based on Stephen King's "The Stand". For those of you not familiar with the book it's really long and took me over a year to read so I'm not going to tell you anything about it. They did make a mini series though back in the 90's and Molly Ringwald was in it. I'm not saying if that's a good or a bad thing though.
I loved "The Munsters" like a mofo and was a big fan of "Pushing Daisies" so the thought of its creator Bryan Fuller rebooting my beloved black and white classic is just like peanut butter and sex. They just go together. The new series is said to be a darker version of the original and will tell the tale of how everyone's favorite family came to live at 1313 Mockingbird Lane. Mother of god I hope they don't F this up.
Details on the DVD and Blu-Ray extras that will be included with "Scream 4" have dropped and along with commentary with Wes Craven, deleted scenes and a gag real the discs will also include alternative endings and openings. This gets me excited because maybe for the next version there will also be a alternative middle and the three combined will actually make this a good movie. See what I did there? Enjoy your weekend folks.

This guy has come up with the greatest excuse as to why he was riding around a Walmart parking lot with his junk hanging out. Simply put, he confessed that Walmart really gets his juices flowing.
