Eddie Murphy is going the serious route!

The actor, who recently premiered the movie Tower Heist, is reportedly in talks with HBO films to star in - and executive produce - a biopic about the controversial former mayor of Washington, D.C. Marion Barry, who was imprisoned for six years after being videotaped smoking crack cocaine, and then went on to run the city once again from 1994-1998!

If all goes as planned, Spike Lee will serve as director, and John Ridley is attached to write!

Certainly sounds like there some serious talent on board!

Could be really good!

What do U think?? Do U want to see this one made??

Steven Soderbergh’s Liberace Film Headed To HBO

liberace-film-hbo-rights.jpg

Kinda a bummer it couldn't get distribution, but at least we'll get to see it.

HBO Films has picked up Steven Soderbergh's labor-of-love project Behind The Candelabra, a Liberace feature that has Michael Douglas attached as the man himself.

The behind-the-scenes biopic will take an in-depth look at Liberace's life and love with Scott Thorson, played by Matt Damon. When asked why the network decided to greenlight the project, HBO Films president Len Amato admitted:

Katherine Heigl Officially Back On Grey's Anatomy TV!

Sorry, Seattle Grace. There's no way she is ever renewing her residency with you guys. Ship has sailed.

Instead of picking up a scalpel in the fall, Katherine Heigl will be getting herself some knitting needles as she has just signed on to star in the new HBO original movie, The Knitting Circle. The flick is based off the Ann Hood novel about a mother whose daughter dies and must learn to move on with her life.

Sad, sad stuff. Can Katherine handle that amount of sad?

What do U think?

Is That…Nicole Kidman Canoodling With Fans?!

Filed under: Nicole Kidman

It most certainly is! That's a very rare sight!

Yesterday, when filming wrapped on her new movie, Hemingway and Gellhorn, Nicole Kidman took a moment to greet some fans that had been waiting on the sidelines. She graciously took pictures and signed autographs - she even got affectionate and gave one fan a big hug for bringing her flowers!

Wow! Such a nice sight to see!

That's good karma right there, Nicole! Hopefully it will come back to you!

James Gandolfini Returns To Jersey Shore For New HBO Project

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersPolitik

james gandolfini returns to jersey for new hbo project

Looks like HBO is ready to re-ignite that flame with Tony Soprano James Gandolfini.

Back in May, we heard word that HBO was partnering up with James to develop a US version of the French Canadian comedy Taxi-22.

Nothing seems to have come of that, but HBO's found a new project for James, which we think is perfect for him.

HBO Films has acquired the rights to the book (deep breath) Eating With the Enemy: How I Waged Peace With North Korea From My BBQ Shack in Hackensack, which was written by Bobby Egan and Kurt Pitzer.

James will star as Bobby Egan, the "owner of a Hackensack rib joint who became involved in back channel negotiations with North Korea to stop producing nuclear weapons."

Sounds really interesting! We'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one.

Will U tune in for Gandolfini's return to Jersey on HBO?
