Christopher Nolan is out href="http://chud.com/articles/articles/13931/1/THE-TWO-PERFORMANCES-OF-
TWO-FACE/Page1.html" target="_blank">talking about Harvey Dent, and how exactly he is going to pull off the "Two-Face" effect in "The Dark Knight". It's amazing how these new Batman movies are being executed so well, and there have been so many super-hero flicks screwed up over the years. "Spawn", I'm looking at you buddy. Click the link for effects talk, as well as some new promotion for the film.

Indie director Dante Tomaselli shot us an email over the weekend with some good and bad news. The bad? Well financial troubles have caused him to temporarily shut down production on his film "The Ocean", about what happens in a small seaside town when the water begins to mysteriously take people's lives. Not content to sit idly by, he is target="_blank">spending his newfound free time developing a film called "Torture Chamber", "a nightmarish shocker in the vein of HOUSE OF WHIPCORD, HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH." He assures us that "The Ocean" is not dead, and will finish shooting as soon as funds are available. We'll keep you updated when we hear more.

Justin Long has signed on to Sam Raimi's "Drag Me to Hell". I'm guessing your reaction to that is either highly negative, or slightly negative. I'm not that bothered, but I just don't see anyone getting excited about this.

Brian O'Halloran, who played Dante in Kevin Smith's "Clerks" will be attending target="_blank">Horror Hound Weekend March 28th, through 30th, along with the entire BG Horror crew. I know this guest isn't horror related, but my former 1990's self just became giddy with anticipation.

In Real People News: 

Usually I would make a "Darwin" comment about a drunk guy href="http://www.news.com.au/dailytelegraph/story/0,22049,23340349-
5001021,00.html" target="_blank">losing an arm while trying to jump between two cars of a moving train. But there's something about this guy I kind of admire. Imagine believing you can do that. Now that's the type of can-do attitude we need in the White House.

An Italian man is suing his wife $300,000, claiming that her constant nagging has caused him to go impotent, and has ruined his life. I'm not exactly sure how you prove impotence in court, but something about this case made me chuckle this morning. So there you go.

On this day in history: 

1997: The Yorkshire Ripper, Peter Sutcliffe, is stabbed in both eyes during an altercation with another inmate at Broadmoor Hospital. Peter is serving a sentence for killing 13 women.
