In an interview with Hero Complex Ryan Reynolds has stated that he felt that his new film is on the same scale as Star Wars with a mythology that goes back much farther than Star Wars. Huh? Really? Star Wars is widely considered the greatest sci fi epic of all time and you think you got that in the bag when your film just spent 20 million dollars to make sure all your CGI didn’t suck? Come on dude, your best film role ever was Waiting where you played a waiter, which you should be lucky you aren’t still doing. Come on now…Here’s the interview…

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are the modern day version of Laurel and Hardy. I love their chemistry, their energy, and the fact that like me, they are a bunchy of big nerds. In this clip from collegehumor.com they have attempted to shoot a remake of starwars but run into a few difficulties in production. This is awesomeness in its purest form….

If you’ve ever wondered what job you would hold were you living in the Star Wars Universe (and haven’t we all at one time or another) then check out this handy chart I found over at onlineschools.org. Very cool. Incidentally, and much like the real world, there are no podcasting jobs in the StarWars universe. Maybe I’ll try the Potter Universe…

The Spider-Man star briefly discusses what its been like to work with Emma Stone and EW reveal the name of the character Howell will be playing who is only actually a recent addition to the comic books…
In an interview with Extra, the 27-year-old actor said that having Emma Stone on the set helps to make the process of filming director Marc Webb’s superhero reboot much more enjoyable and affirmed that he’s already developed a solid relationship with the actress who will play Gwen Stacy.
“I really do like Emma – she’s a pretty special actress and a pretty special person.
“One of the funnier people and one of the more fun loving people I know. I’m so glad that she’s there on set. It’s really fun.”
In slightly more interesting news though, EW have revealed that C. Thomas Howell will play a different, and much more recent, character than many expected in the upcoming reboot. (fan speculation was rife that he had been cast as either Norman Osborn or J. Jonah Jameson) Here’s what they had to say in their report:

This is not what I signed up for. That’s the thought that kept going through my head as I sat watching Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I was expecting action, adventure, intrigue, and mystery. What I got was an overwrought drama ripe with poor pacing, questionable narrative choices, and what amounts to a movie based on what I feel to be weakest book of the series.
It’s an issue that has really been present since the beginning of this series but usually it’s the other way around. I would read the book finding it at times breathtaking, heartbreaking, and at the least interesting but often it just didn’t transfer to the screen. I found most of the problems with the earlier movies to be the fact that they tried to cut a book that could have been made into three or four movies into a single film. Integral parts would be left out or important character developing scenes that played to the overall story were left on the cutting room floor to make room for action sequences and such. I can’t blame them, there’s a lot of material there to pull from but ultimately a few poor decisions on the director’s behalf have left many of the previous entries a bit flat. I will say this though, up until this point the movies had become incrementally better as they got the Potter formula mixed, but they really seemed to drop the ball regarding this latest entry.
It’s not like I didn’t see this coming, I knew from the first day I picked up The Deathly Hallows that they would struggle to turn this movie into something interesting. I really felt for the first time that this movie would actually be helped by sizing down bits and pieces from this book and had they stuck with the formula they had been working with they surely would have had a decent finale to wrap it up with. That is until they got greedy. Someone decided if they split up the book into too parts they could maximize profits. Big mistake. The boring parts of the book have now become central to the plot. Almost the entire second act of the movie, which in a shorter version would have been a fifteen minute montage, leads us on a tedious journey into the wilds of Potter Land, where apparently all you do is argue, share exposition until you reveal a clue, and argue some more.
Ultimately this movie is exactly what the book was, an overwritten money grab. An opportunity to stretch the already thin narrative to the breaking point in order to maximize profit points. The only thing we have to look forward to now is how Hollywood rewrites the ending to the movie so they can go out on their own and start making their own Potter movies, cartoons, and TV shows. Here’s what I suggest, Harry finds out that Hermione is his sister, Ron is a ginger robot servant, and Valdemort is your father Harry! I smell prequels! Somebody get Lucas on the phone and see if he’s interested in directing this for us.

Marky and the Bear: Mark Wahlberg will play the human lead in Seth Macfarlane’s directorial debut, a $65 million R-rated buddy comedy titled Ted about a man and his best friend, a living teddy bear voiced by Macfarlane. Wahlberg will spend the movie getting frustrated with the bear, “a carousing, irresponsible slacker,” for “getting in the way of his buddy committing to adulthood and the girl he loves.” Why does it sound like You, Me, and Dupree with a splash of CGI? [Deadline]
Easy As Pi: After auditioning 3,000 teenagers in a global talent search, director Ang Lee has found someone to play the lead in his upcoming film rendition of Yann Martel’s novel Life of Pi. His name is Suraj Sharma, and he’s never acted before. He will play “16-year old Pi Patel, a youth who gets stranded for 227 days through shark-infested waters aboard a 26-foot lifeboat with a wounded zebra, a spotted hyena, a seasick orangutan, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger.” Shooting starts in January. [Deadline]
No Wabbits: Brothers Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman (Hotel Transylvania) have sold a pitch to Warner Bros. that revolves “around the fictional ACME warehouse” (i.e., Wile E. Coyote). It does not leave room for the studio to develop a new franchise around the Looney Toons brand, as the hallmark characters will not be making an appearance in the movie. Instead, the film will be a live action/CGI hybrid made in “a tone that recalls the Amblin pics of the 1980s or a Men in Black
