This could be a cool cast: Clive Owen, Nicole Kidman and Rodrigo Santoro will star in HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN, an HBO TV film about the tumultuous romance and subsequent marriage of famous writer Ernest Hemingway (Clive Owen) and up-and-coming war correspondent Martha Gellhorn (Nicole Kidman), following them through the Spanish Civil War and beyond. As she grew in reputation and stature, Gellhorn stood toe-to-toe with Hemingway, putting his famous bravado and iconic style to the test.

MGM is moving on with its reboot of the famous sf film ROBOCOP. The studio has hired a writer for the story about a cop brought back
from death and drafted to become a remorseless and ruthless cyborg cop. That plan is subverted when suppressed memories of his past life come back to haunt him. The film is scheduled for release in 2013.

Since zombies have moved from cinemas to TV as well, CW is preparing a pilot for the possible new show called AWAKENING. Starring Lucy Griffiths and Meredith Hagner it will be a story about two sisters coming of age and facing off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising. Titus Welliver
(from LOST) will join them as a mid-aged man from a family of legendary Zombie Hunters.

And check out the most adorable official trailer for this summer's most smurfilicious adventure THE SMURFS in which he evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, and they tumble from their magical world landing into ours right in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down. The cast includes Neil Patrick HarrisSofĂ­a Vergara, Anton Yelchin, Hank Azaria ...


  1. ROBOCOP IS MY SHIT! I've seen every movie back in the day and I was super OBSESSED! I hope they do this right because the past few remakes disappointed me so much I want to head but a brick wall till I bleed to death lol

  2. I love this Kidman, Owen project. Love Hemingway and I did not particularly like In Love and War with Chris O'Donnell and Sandra Bullock. Awkenings sounds pretty cool, I love all things zombie.

  3. i am so looking forward to smurf! being a huge fan of them during childhood sure makes it so much more interesting to catch them on the big screen! such as alvin n the chipmunks. what could go wrong? :p

  4. The Hemingway movie sounds like it will be interesting. Smurfs and Patrick Nell Harris, oh my.

    Thoughts in Progress

  5. After seeing the trailer for "The Smurfs" I am excited to see it now. I was skeptical but that looks really good, especially since Neil Patrick Harris is in it!! YAY! It's pretty cool they are bringing back "Robocop" that will be interesting!

  6. Oh my goodness, I was raised int he Smurf era! So cool! Isnt it amazing how all the 'old' stuff is coming back! woohoo!

  7. @Falsy
    for the sake of your head and that wall, I hope the new remake won't disappoint you, sister :))

    ah, it's true, that O'Donnell/Bullock project was no good, even though we do love them both.

    yep, I think THE SMURFS could go well in cinemas since so many of us grew up with them back in some much better times :)

  8. @Mason
    who could resist the Smurf/Neil Patrick combination? :)

    it's a great trailer isn't it? It made me laugh a lot :) Gotta love those little blue cuties :)

    ah, wasn't The Smurf Era, a great one? :)

  9. I believe they've already conquered us!

  10. i just showed the smurf trailer to two of my sons (sick day today) and they are super excited for it!!!!!
    alex and you are right about the zombies... hmmm.... smurfs vs zombies- now that sounds like a movie! :P

  11. So Robocop is going down...not until 2013 though. I guess I'll have plenty of time to determine if this is a good or bad thing. I'm leaning towards good because the original can be done better.

  12. Why the heck should something like RoboCop be rebooted. There are so many movies that can be made. There are so many good books to adapt from.

  13. Whoa, that is an amazing cast indeed for HEMINGWAY AND GELLHORN, and the story is intriguing too. I've been wanting to see Clive in a sweeping romantic drama, so talk about wish come true!

  14. I always found the Smurfs to be rather annoying. I like the idea of the mash-up of Smurfs and zombies with Robo-cop thrown in to save the day.

    Tossing It Out

  15. oh. my. god. I totally giggled at that Smurfs trailer. :D And ooo... like the looks of that Hemingway movie. Too bad I'm HBO-less these days. Thanks, Dezzy~ <3

  16. @Vics
    The Smurfs would totally kick some zombies ass :)))) They already had a lot of combat practice on Gargamel :)

    it is, isn't it?

    yep, we have quite a lot of time to wait and see :)

  17. @Jaccsy
    ah, Jaccsy, that's a question we could ask about any remake and reboot in Hollywood. It's just sad how creativity became a lost trait :(

    ah, Flixy, I'm not sure if it will be a sweeping romantic film, I have an impression they will fight a lot :)

  18. @Arlee
    have you considered playing a role of Grumpy Smurf? :))))And zombies would not stand a chance in a clash with Smurfs :)

    there's another reason for you to get HBO again :)

  19. Robocop was one of the few movies I've seen where I had to quit eating my popcorn. I told my friend, if I saw or heard one more gunshot, I'd shoot him. lol Altho, I did enjoy when the one dude melted. Liked that in Indiana Jones, too.

  20. Dezmond - The Smurfs looks like such a fun film. Can't wait to take my kids. =D

  21. haha, the Smurfs look brilliant. A smile-inducing film :)

  22. @MPax
    what? There's a dude melting in ROBOCOP? :)) I hope they will repeat that scene in the reboot :)

    ah, they will have a blast, it's such a super charming film :) And the Mom will enjoy it too ;)

  23. @Lyndylove
    hehe I almost died laughing too while watching it :) Especially the Grumpy Smurfs comments :)

    it will be such an adorable movie ;)

  24. Smurfs look funny. :) I think I'm going to like that film.

  25. they do :) I think the film will go well in our country too, since the Smurfs were such a hit back when we were small :)
