"It seems a lot of people in power are not comfortable with women writing or directing. They think it's incompatible with motherhood or some other responsibility, and that freaks me out. A lot of women are doing amazing things as producers and executive producers, but on the creative side? Not as much, and that's deeply depressing."
Diablo Cody on the lack of women in creative positions in Hollywood.

Diablo Cody also attended the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at The Palm Springs Convention Center in Las Vegas this past Saturday.
Diablo showed her sexy side on the red carpet wearing a sparkling, long-sleeved gray dress with a bold necklace and some killer red lips.
Overall, a great look for Miz Diablo.
Our only critique… we'd work on that pose girl. You're gorgeous, you should show off a confidant pose on the red carpet!

The deadites are coming…but not until 2013!
Last we heard about the Evil Dead remake, Sony Pictures had made a distribution deal for the FilmDistrict/Ghost House Pictures flick.
Now, we're hearing that the film has officially been given a release date of April 12, 2013!
We've also learned some new story details! In this version of the cult classic horror flick, a group of friends travel to a remote cabin where they find the Book of the Dead. After the book is read, the group must "fight to survive when a demonic force is unleashed."

Get ready for more deadites!
Back in July, we heard that Sam Raimi was planning a remake of his 1981 horror cult classic The Evil Dead!
We were kind of excited about it, especially because we'd heard that Sam was talking about making the movie for a low budget, just like he did for the original!
Now, we're hearing that Sony Pictures has made a deal to distribute the flick, which is being put together by FilmDistrict and Ghost House Pictures.
Here's what producer Rob Tapert had to say about the project in a statement:
