Foo Fighters Are Back! Elderly Dave Grohl Leads a Nursing Home Revolt in Video for New Song, ‘Run’
Foo Fighters have returned, and they’re up to their old tricks—emphasis on old.

The Dave Grohl-led outfit is celebrating 22 years this summer, but anyone fearing that the band’s sledge hammer riffs have gone soft will have their ear drums pounded into rubble by their new song, “Run.” Age brings wisdom, and a greater ability to shred.

The accompanying music video hammers the point home. The Foos—prematurely elderly with the magic of prosthetic makeup—find themselves in an oppressive nursing home, lead by terrifying Nurse Ratched-like staff. Grohl, nearly unrecognizable but for his trademark Trini Lopez Gibson,

Kristen Wiig, Russell Crowe Toast Ridley Scott at Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony
Hollywood, Calif. — Russell Crowe, Djimon Hounsou, Eli Roth, Kristen Wiig, Jerry Bruckheimer and Salma Hayek were among those who turned out on Hollywood Blvd. Thursday afternoon to celebrate the career of director Ridley Scott as the helmer of this year’s hit film “The Martian” received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Wiig kicked things off with her trademark humor. “We are all here to celebrate and honor your incredible body,” she quipped. “And of course we have to mention your museum of Believe It or Not, right down the street.”

Lethal Weapon Remake Moving Forward at Warner Bros.

Lethal Weapon Remake Moving Forward at Warner Bros.
Warner Bros. is ramping up development on its remake slate with such titles as Lethal Weapon, The Wild Bunch, Westworld, The Dirty Dozen, Tarzan and Oh, God!.

The studio's new priority on remakes comes after the departure of Warner executive Jessica Goodman at the end of 2010. Warner Bros. is now reorganizing her portfolio of projects, which will be getting new leases on life.

The Lethal Weapon remake is the first project to move forward, with the studio hiring Will Beall to write the remake script. Beall is a former Lapd detective who garnered attention for his writing with the script Tales from the Gangster Squad. Beall's pitch maintained the buddy-cop theme with a hard-r edge that the studio was looking for.

The Dirty Dozen and Tarzan remakes have been in development for many years. We reported back in 2008 that Stephen Sommers was directing the Tarzan remake, although a deal was never made.
