Thursday, October 21st, 2010

Sony envisions a mouth-watering Cleopatra franchise with Hollywood’s only female action star, Angelina Jolie, as the mighty Egyptian Queen.

Tolkien’s Hobbit, is coming up in 3D

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

It’s looking like Peter Jackson directing The Hobbit has moved from “all-but-a-done-deal” to a done deal. The New York Times is reporting that Jackson has finalized his deal to direct both parts of The Hobbit.
