THIS JUST IN

Here are some films that are due out at the end of the year. Both are in post-production. Both look like they could either really suck or be really awesome. You decide.



I. W.

Oliver Stone has concluded filming on his newest "work" W.

This "film" will recount the life and "presidency" of George W. Bush, with Josh Brolin playing the lead character. Richard Dreyfuss was cast as Dick Cheney. Lawl.

For a full cast list, including Ellen Burstyn and James Cromwell, and poor excuses to make this film, mostly from Stone himself, please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W._%28film%29

For a shitty trailer, here's this.

W. is slated for release October 17, 2008.



II. The Day The Earth Stood Still


In this remake of the 1951 classic, Keanu Reeves plays Klaatu. Great. I'll watch it, though.

The film is to stay true to the original and truer still to the short story the original was based on, "Farewell to the Master". Even still, Michael Rennie and Robert Wise are spinning in their graves as we speak.

Here is the full cast list and here is an excuse from the director.

The Day the Earth Stood Still is scheduled to be released 12 December, 2008. This could change due to filming extensions, most likely due to Reeves' fucking up somehow.

[That is all]

I heard yesterday that the new Coen Brothers movie is in casting. The story is about a dysfunctional Minnesota family. Is this old news? It just might be . . .

YES IT IS.

The film is "Burn After Reading", starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, Tilda Swinton and Frances McDormand.

ALSO: It looks amazing.
