Rumor Patrol: Taylor Swift as Supergirl?

21 December 2009 1:35 PM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Our friends over at Latino Review have correctly dubbed this following rumor as the “stupid news of the day.” They heard from the super-reliable sources over at Hollyscoop (sarcasm alert!) that young pop music sensation Taylor Swift is being considered for the role of Supergirl.

The Supergirl project that has sparked this rumor is reportedly called Supergirl! The Love Story and that sound – like the crackle of distant thunder – you just heard was the collective sound of thousands of people across the world slapping their foreheads.

 

Oh Kanye West, why didn’t you save your ridiculous outburst for the moment when we would truly need it?

Here is what Hollyscoop managed to get out of somebody, somewhere, somewhen, who is somehow involved with this Supergirl project:

Hollywood is short of female heroes and the time is right for a new Supergirl. A number of young stars are being mentioned for »

Barry Sonnenfeld to Direct Gil's All Fright Diner for DreamWorks

16 December 2009 10:48 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Nothing like taking the kitchen sink approach to a project, which is what it sounds like A. Lee Martinez did when writing the novel Gil's All Fright Diner about a vampire and werewolf who team up to fight zombies after stopping at a diner in the desert that is a conduit for the supernatural.

Now, thanks to the success of The Twilight Saga, of course any project that even hints at a vamp/lycan collaboration is a hot ticket, so DreamWorks Animation has snapped up Kung Fu Panda scribes Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris to write an adaptation of Gil's All Fright Diner.

Barry Sonnenfeld (The Addams Family/Addams Family Values) is attached to direct.

According to Variety there's an odd couple aspect of the story [about] this vampire and werewolf who team to save the world from an ancient demon and his modern ally, a high school cheerleader who wants to be famous. »

DreamWorks Animation has set Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris to write Gil's All Night Fright, an adaptation of the A. Lee Martinez novel that has Barry Sonnenfeld attached to direct. The scribes previously received story credit on DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda." The writers also originated the Ridley Scott-directed "Robin Hood" as a spec script that was subsequently rewritten by Brian Helgeland, and they were exec producers and writers on the Showtime drama series "Sleeper Cell." Much like the "Twilight" series, "Gil's All Fright Diner" revolves around a vampire and a werewolf. Here, they are mismatched partners who battle zombies and try to save the world, after they stop in a diner in the desert that is a conduit for the supernatural.

More Details On Josh Brolin Joining ‘Men In Black 3′

14 December 2009 9:00 AM, PST | The Flickcast | See recent The Flickcast news »

According to the L.A. Times, in Men in Black 3 Josh Brolin’s role has been more clearly defined as a young K (Tommy Lee Jones in the previous two films), who J (Will Smith) will somehow travel back in time to meet. Yeah, that’s pretty much all the news there is to report at the moment, other than the script is being worked on by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder and Idiocracy), pretty much everyone else rumored to return, Barry Sonnenfeld possibly directing, Jones and Smith, in their respective roles, and hopefully Tony Shalhoub.

I can always stand to see his character get his head blown off a couple more times. As the article also mentions, another hurdle the movie faces – other than the whole time-traveling bit – is scheduling.

We know that Jonah Hex has had some reshoots, Brolin’s scheduled for a number of other movies (including The Coen Bros. »

His exact part is still being discussed but there has allegedly been talk that he will replace Jones as Agent K. Other claims say he might play a new agent or play a younger version of Agent K.

Josh Brolin to Join "Men in Black 3?"

9 December 2009 10:45 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

After "No Country for Old Men," Josh Brolin's star has been rising! The actor is now known as the hardest working man in show business (sorry Nicolas Cage). After "Milk" and "W," Brolin will be next seen on "Jonah Hex" and the sequel to "Wall Street" from Oliver Stone.

Now, he may be zapping aliens in "Men in Black 3."

The La Times told us that:

The actor is being considered for a role that would have him donning the black suit and shades for the third installment of the sci-fi comedy franchise. His exact part is a matter of discussion, but in recent days there's been chatter in Hollywood development circles of a few possibilities: He could play a new single-monikered government agent, with Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K passing the baton to Brolin's character. Or he could play Agent K as a young man. Or something else entirely. »

Josh Brolin Could Be One of the Men In Black…3

9 December 2009 5:16 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Evidently, Josh Brolin could be turning his duster and facial scars from Jonah Hex in for a black suit and some shades if what the La Times is reporting has any validation to it.  They are reporting the Academy Award nominee is being considered for a role in the third Men In Black film, one that would make him a member of the team.

Who, exactly, Brolin will be playing is being kept under wraps, though rumors are coming out that he could be a new member of the duo joining Tommy Lee Jones’ K and Will Smith’s J.  There are also rumors that Brolin could be playing Jones’ K as a younger man.

Personally, what I would like to see, is Jones and Brolin team up to take on an alien that looks like Javier Bardem.  I’m sure that’s not what screenwriter Etan Cohen (Cohen?  Hmmm? »

Josh Brolin To Talks For Men In Black 3

9 December 2009 2:37 AM, PST | Screenrush | See recent Screenrush news »

La Times is reporting that Josh Brolin could feature in Men In Black 3. He is being considered for a role as a possible replacement for Agent K, played in the first two installments by Tommy Lee Jones. Will Smith has yet to agree to return for the sequel.

At this point the news is complete speculation as the film has yet to be greenlit by Sony, franchise director Barry Sonnenfeld has yet to sign on, and the script is still being developed by Tropic Thunder screenwriter Etan Cohen.

Brolin is currently working on the Coen Brothers' film True Grit, a remake of the classic John Wayne Western, and the mob drama Cartel.

Josh Brolin Replacing Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black 3?

9 December 2009 1:44 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Two months ago, Josh Brolin was selected to replace Sean Penn in Asger Leth's Cartel when Penn unexpectedly went on hiatus for unspecified personal reasons. Now, The La Times writes that Brolin may step in for Tommy Lee Jones in Men in Black 3.

It's not clear exactly what his role would be: He could play a younger version of Jones's Agent K, or simply a younger agent that K passes his duties to. Will Smith is expected to return, and it's interesting to consider him and Brolin riffing off each other. Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen is penning the script, and Barry Sonnenfeld is expected to return in the director's chair.

In addition to Cartel, Brolin is starring as the title character in the adaptation of the graphic-novel Western Jonah Hex alongside Megan Fox (releasing on June 18) and in Oliver Stone's sequel Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps »

Is Josh Brolin Suiting Up for Men In Black 3?

8 December 2009 10:14 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Hero Complex reports that Josh Brolin, a man on a mission to become one of the coolest actors around (and succeeding), may be putting on the black shades, sharp suit, and protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe in Men in Black 3.  His role is still subject to speculation but there have been some interesting theories circulating which cast him as either K’s (Tommy Lee Jones) replacement or a younger version of K.

Placed in this context, it looks like Jones won’t be returning but Will Smith is committed to returning for the third go-around.  Working from a script by Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder), Sony wants to get the film into production in 2010 although it lacks a green light and having director Barry Sonnenfeld return is still tentative.  It may also be a bit of an issue for Brolin as he’s showing no sign of »
