Roundup 6/4


Time for another edition of Roundup. Get on your bikes and ride!

  • Speaking of Seth Rogen, he and James Franco revealed that they're already talking about a sequel to the upcoming stoner comedy Pineapple Express. I think the first one could be surprisingly funny, so hopefully we're not disappointed.
  • For those of you who have already seen Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, check out Urban Dictionary's new definition of the term "nuke the fridge."
  • Apparently Quentin Tarantino has been canceling appointments because he's in preproduction on his new war movie Inglorious Bastards. Could he actually go through with it?
  • Following in the footsteps of Warner Brothers (who sideswiped Picturehouse and Warner Independent earlier this year), Paramount is absorbing most of the functions of Paramount Vantage. The independent studio brought us both No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood recently. This sucks - they really need to leave these studios alone; especially when this one was actually succeeding.
  • Guy Ritchie has signed on to direct Sherlock Holmes for Warner Brothers, based on an upcoming comic book that will supposedly reinvent the character and concentrate more on his boxing and swordfighting skills.
  • Matt Damon will star in Clint Eastwood's new movie Human Factor alongside Morgan Freeman early next year. The story surrounds the Rigby World Cup in 1985 South Africa.

If by "legit" you mean "possibly in 3-D" then absolutely yes.

man, you know what would be a hoot? if instead of giving moviegoers those 3-D glasses and avoiding germ-phobia, they gave them a 3-D pill to take before seeing the movie.

except the pill ended up being lysergic acid.

best. potential. prank. ever.
