The "Twilight" saga might be over (for now), but that doesn't mean that the movie theaters will be free from swoony young vampires falling in love. Come Valentine's Day, "Vampire Academy," based on the young adult novel by Richelle Mead, will show its fangs -- and if the new trailer is any indication, it promises to be wicked good fun, and a lot less sparkly.
While the plot of "Vampire Academy" isn't even hinted at, it does look pretty cool: Basically it's about a high school exclusively for creatures of the night. Zoey Deutch, who also starred in supernatural young adult adaptation "Beautiful Creatures" (and is the daughter of Lea Thompson and John Hughes surrogate Howard Deutch), leads the cast of pretty young things, with actors like Gabriel Byrne and Olga Kurylenko (as the principal) in the adult roles.
But more exciting than the on-screen talent is the creative team behind the movie. »

'Oh, you'll have fun with Renny," says his assistant as I'm ushered into his office in Venice, Los Angeles, three blocks from where Orson Welles filmed the opening sequence of Touch of Evil. "He's been doing his homework on you."

"I laughed all day!" he adds.

Red-hot stand-up comics don.t always translate to the big screen, despite the industry.s insistence on trying to find the right vehicles for their talents. Sometimes you hit it out of the park and get Rodney Dangerfield in Back to School. Other times you get Andrew .Dice. Clay in The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Chris Rock is one of those guys who has fallen somewhere in the middle. He.s a brilliant stand-up comic . possibly the best working stand-up at the moment . but his film career has been touch and go. Things are a little sketchier when he directs, as his first two efforts (Head of State and I Think I Love My Wife) have had limited success. Rock.s hoping the third time will be the charm, however, and he.s opening up a casting call for actors to join him on a spring shoot. Showbiz411 says Rock »
