As some sort of sick consolation prize for not getting to appear in the new Transformers movie, Soundwave has had his cassette tape guts ripped out and replaced with a cold, MP3 playing heart. For around $100 depending on the edition and shipping, you can purchase Takara/Tomy's Soundwave MP3 player. Instead of taking clunky tapes, the Soundwave MP3 player has a slot for SD cards, along with the usual headphone jack and music controls. And yes, it does do the whole transforming bit: there wouldn't be much point otherwise, donchafink?

Kevin Smith's New Comedy -- 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno'

via Cinematical by Erik Davis on Jun 06, 2007

Filed under: , , , , ,

We've had to wait a little bit, but the LA Times reveals today the title and plot description of Kevin Smith's new comedy -- Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Pic, which will most likely begin production this coming February in Minnesota, is described by Smith as being "a bawdy sex comedy with heart." Picked up by The Weinstein Co. after Smith had only written the title, Zack and Miri Make a Porno will chronicle two friends (yes, Zack and Miri) who, upon reaching their 30s with nothing to show for it, lots of rent problems and a 15-year high school reunion looming in the distance, decide to try and ignite an amateur porn enterprise. I imagine that might be a bit tricky in Minnesota ... during the dead of winter.

Smith goes on to say that it's ".... dirty, with nudity. But funny nudity, not gratuitous nudity." But before he dives into that, Smith hopes to first shoot his "horror" flick Red State for a measly $3 million. Aiming to give that flick a "naturalistic, drive-in feel," it appears the plot will center on a group of outsiders who stumble into "fundamentalism gone to the extreme" somewhere in Middle America. But that's all we know so far; apparently, Smith is keeping the Red State script a secret from everyone and, those interested, need an invite from Smith in order to read it. An interesting sidenote is that Rosario Dawson (who starred in Clerks II) is supposed to give it a read this week, which may or may not mean there might be a role for her somewhere in there.

Personally, I think both ideas have potential (although this isn't the first time the whole "amateur porn" angle has been used in a comedy). Honestly, I know the jokes will be funny; I'm more curious about who he casts. Will Smith call up some of his regulars, or will we get to see some fresh faces? Will he dip into the Apatow pack for Zack and Miri? Oh, and Kevin (since I know you're reading this), do drop your pals at Cinematical a line when you have some casting news (erik@cinematical.com) -- we'd love to hear from you.

Jericho likely to return for eight episodes - UPDATE

via TV Squad by Anna Johns on Jun 06, 2007

Filed under: ,

jerichoWhat a difference 24 hours make. Yesterday, it looked like fans of Jericho might have been successful in their campaign to resurrect the canceled show. Today, it looks like they really are successful. Both Variety and the LA Times are reporting that CBS is in hurried negotiations with producers, writers and actors to resuscitate the show for an eight episode run, to return mid-season.

"The idea would not be to bring it back for eight and out, but to bring it back for eight with the hope that it would keep going," executive producer Carol Barbee told the LA Times. Barbee also said that when the fans initially responded to the cancellation, CBS suggested a two-hour movie to wrap up the series. But Barbee said 'no', because that wouldn't do justice to the series.

Barbee also makes an excellent point about the way networks are going to have to start looking at ratings. She says, they're going to need to consider online fan communities and online viewings and, "I think they have to understand that the Nielsens are not telling the story anymore." The networks need to find the coveted 18-49 demographic by going online. I thought they had figured that out by putting so many shows online, but apparently CBS wasn't taking that online community seriously.

Patrick Stewart's 'The Merchant of Venice' Still Moving Forward

Patrick Stewart's 'The Merchant of Venice' Still Moving Forward

via Cinematical by Monika Bartyzel on Jun 05, 2007

Filed under: , , , ,

You might have heard rumblings a few years ago about another adaptation of William Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice. This came on the still-hot heels of the Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons and Joseph Fiennes version that came out that year. However, this one was going to put a bit of a spin on things. Under the hands of Sir Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, the classic play was going to rise out of the desert of Nevada -- The Merchant of Venice Vegas. Aptly housed at the Venetian Resort, the adaptation would explore greedy gambling and money as well as the relationship between Antonio and Basanio using the city's gay scene. Of course, McKellen was approached by Stewart to play Antonio. At the time, some believed it was a bit over-the-top.

For a while, there has been no word on the project, but it's still been running under the radar. While discussing his upcoming Shakespeare roles for the Minerva Theatre in Chichester, Stewart chatted a bit about Venice, a play he was into since he was "12 and my English teacher put a copy of The Merchant of Venice in my hand... I just took to it, like being thrown into water and finding you can swim. All I ever wanted to do was Shakespeare, the other things were just happy accidents." While he made no mention of McKellan, he explained that he will produce and star in the film (as Shylock, I presume), which came out of an argument with John Logan over the play. After Stewart argued that it wasn't a "loathsome play," Logan decided to adapt it for the actor. Unfortunately, that's all there is to say for now -- there's no news on when, or of a definitive cast. Me, I'm just hoping this does well enough that he decides to bring his Prospero to the screen next, which he hit out of the park with New York Shakespeare Festival's version of The Tempest.

Jim Carrey Will Lead Gay Prison Movie

via Cinematical by Monika Bartyzel on Jun 04, 2007

Filed under: , , ,

What do you do when your thriller of a movie based on one little insidious number, that isn't 13, falls flat? You have to become a gay inmate and lather yourself in some romantically dark comedy. Jim Carrey, fresh off The Number 23, has signed on to star in I Love You Phillip Morris. According to Variety, this is one in a heap of movies that Carrey is currently scheduling to wrap up before the SAG contract expires in a year. The Spotless Mind star will star as a conman who makes a number of prison escapes for the love of a cellmate.

The story is actually based on a true crime book by Steve McVicker, a Houston Chronicle crime reporter. As Variety describes it, Carrey is Steven Russell, a married dad who finds himself jailed in Texas. Unfortunately, he falls head over heels with his cellmate, who is inconveniently released before he is. This motivates Carrey's character to escape from the prison four times in pursuit of his love. But the story's quirks make things more interesting. It seems that the real Russell escaped each time on Friday the thirteenth (oh, Carrey and his superstition!), outwitting his captors each time. Once, he waved a walkie-talkie at a guard and walked right out. Another, he made a pair of scrubs with a green pen and water to walk out. With pranks like these, it seems right up Jim's alley to me.

The adaptation is coming from the guys behind Cats & Dogs, Bad Santa and The Bad News Bears -- John Requa and Glenn Ficarra. If this is anything like their Santa work, which it seems to be, this whole crazy love story should work well. Morris will also mark the pair's directorial debut, which should make things a bit more interesting. It was pitched in Cannes as a Catch Me if You Can meets Brokeback Mountain, and Luc Besson's Europacorp is about to close a financing deal for under $20 million. That's not much, but what do you really need for a prison romance?

Top 10 signs you're a fundamentalist Christian

10 - You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

9 - You feel insulted and "dehumanized" when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

8 - You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

7 - Your face turns purple when you hear of the "atrocities" attributed to Allah, but you don't even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in "Exodus" and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in "Joshua" including women, children, and trees!

6 - You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

5 - You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

4 - You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs -- though excluding those in all rival sects - will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most "tolerant" and "loving."

3 - While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in "tongues" may be all the evidence you need to "prove" Christianity.

2 - You define 0.01% as a "high success rate" when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

1 - You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bible, Christianity, and church history - but still call yourself a Christian.

Dutch kidney donor game show was a hoax

via TV Squad by Anna Johns on Jun 02, 2007

Filed under: ,

kidneyA bunch of Dutch producers managed to get people's panties in a wad this week when they announced they were airing a show where contestants would vie to get a dying woman's kidneys. It turns out, it was a hoax.

The Big Donor Show aired last night in The Netherlands, where producers revealed their entire ploy was to put pressure on the Dutch government to raise awareness of the need for organ donation. The show did air, but just to prove a point. The woman, "Lisa", who was supposedly dying of brain cancer (but not really) interviewed potential candidates for her kidneys. Some Dutch viewers said the show was an eye-opening experience, because it explained just how hard it is in The Netherlands for someone to actually receive a donated organ (Dutch rules tend to favor family or friends only). The contestants who took part in the show were really in need of kidneys, but they were all in on the "joke" ahead of time.

Only time will tell whether this ploy just pissed people off, or if it had an actual impact.

Mach 5 Revealed for Wachowski's 'Speed Racer'

via Cinematical by Erik Davis on Jun 01, 2007

USA Today has revealed the first image of Speed's Mach 5 for next summer's live-action Speed Racer, and so far so good. Written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski, the only thing scaring me at this point in time is that the plan is for this to be an all-out family comedy. Since the original Speed Racer cartoon was, essentially, one long acid trip -- and the Wachowski Bros. aren't exactly known as the guys you hire to entertain kids at a birthday party -- I'm damn curious to see how they plan to pull this off. Screw the work they did on V for Vendetta, Speed Racer is their follow-up to the Matrix trilogy; my hope is that this film, like the original Matrix, does some wicked things with effects -- that's the only thing that will save us from going, "Man, why did the Wachowski's have to do a silly kids film?"

Apart from the pic, USA Today also spoke with Emile Hirsch (who plays Speed) and producer Joel Silver by phone, as they gear up to begin production in Germany next week. Regarding the Mach 5, Hirsch said: "It was one of the coolest things I'd ever seen. That's when I started thinking it would be great to be on TV. And have one of those." Silver told them that the flick will have a "retro future" look, and that the Mach 5 will not see a lot of time on the ground; instead, it will be placed on a crane and the majority of filming (I imagine) will take place in front of a green screen. Another interesting sidenote (and one that makes me feel slightly better) is that Chim Chim will be played by a real monkey, and not some digitally-created animal. Starring Christina Ricci (as Trixie), John Goodman (as Pops), Matthew Fox (as Racer X) and Susan Sarandon (as Mom Racer), Speed Racer will bolt into theaters on May 9, 2008.

Quote of the Day - May 25th, 2007

The details of my life are quite inconsequential.... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a 15-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize; he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes, he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament... My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon... luge lessons... In the spring, we'd make meat helmets... When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds — pretty standard, really. At the age of 12, I received my first scribe. At the age of 14, a Zoroastrian named Wilma ritualistically shaved my testicles — there really is nothing like a shorn scrotum — it's quite breathtaking... I suggest you try it.

- Dr. Evil (Mike Myers), Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Quote of the Day - May 24, 2007

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, 'n' how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, 'n' how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

-Bob Dylan

Quote of the Day - May 22, 2007

I should dearly love that the world should be ever so little better for my presence. Even on this small stage we have our two sides, and something might be done by throwing all one's weight on the scale of breadth, tolerance, charity, temperance, peace, and kindliness to man and beast. We can't all strike very big blows, and even the little ones count for something.
- Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
