Alan Cumming Is Glad He Quit The Spider-Man Musical!

alan-cumming-does-not-regret-dropping-out-of-spiderman-musical

We can't say we blame him, given the amount of injuries setbacks this production has had!

Alan Cumming, who was previously attached to portray the Green Goblin in the accident-prone musical Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark before he dropped out due to numerous delays, recently spoke out about the production, and seems to be pretty content with his decision to leave - despite having to continue working with director Julie Taymor on her film adaptation of The Tempest!

He explained:

"My GOD, that was a lucky escape. Jesus Christ! Talk about dodging a bullet there! …it just fucked me about. It kept getting delayed and delayed, and so I was like, 'OK, time to move on.' Yeah, it was a bit awkward. She wasn't best pleased when I quit. But the thing about Julie is that she's very blinkered about her work, and then things go into the ether. So the next time I saw her for The Tempest, it was like it never happened."

Well that's good!

We would hope that she would have understood how frustrating the wait for Spider-Man was, and kept it professional on the set of the flick, so we're very pleased to hear that!

Not to mention that we're thrilled you weren't the victim of any 'technical difficulties,' bb!

Smart call getting out when you did!

Thoughts??

Arrested Development Movie Back On! And It Sounds Like For Real This Time!

cd10_smjb.jpg

One minute it's on, one minute it's off - don't they understand how painful it is to keep toying with our emotions like this?!

Ever since Arrested Development was pulled prematurely from television - and our hearts - years back, there's been talk of the series being turned into a movie. Unfortunately, whenever progress seems to be made in the development process, it hits a snag, and our dreams our crushed!

However, we've gotten word from actor Will Arnett as well as series creator Mitch Hurwitz that may bring a glimmer of hope back into our souls - the movie is back on!

Arnett says:

"As Mitch likes to say, we're just going to wait until there's zero interest, and that's when we'll do it."

And Hurwitz elaborates:

"Believe it or not, we have started the script. We're taking a little abeyance while we get ['Running Wilde'] up and running. But it is our absolute next priority and we can't wait to do it. We're changing some of the Bush references to Obama because we started it awhile ago. And the Bluths may not be vacationing in the Gulf of Mexico anymore. We also might have to recast the part of Uncle Mel, the former action movie star. But other than that we have a clear path. Believe it or not, I do not enjoy teasing our wonderful and devoted audience, which is one reason it appears that I've been so cagey about this. It's just that I don't want to promise what I can't deliver."

All is forgiven, bb! As long as you don't turn around in three weeks and say the movie is off again! Then we're going to have to bring a new daddy to town - a discipline daddy! LOLs!

That being said, we remain cautiously optimistic ecstatic!

We've missed the Bluths far too much! Never leave us again!

What do U think?? Are U convinced that the movie will happen this time???

Douchebag Diva Director David O. Russell Quits His Own Movie!

ap040928013313-1jb.jpg

David O. Russell had another temper tantrum?!

How shocking and completely unexpected!

LOLs! Fucking diva.

The notoriously difficult director has been attempting to finish the film Nailed - which legitimately sounds like an inspired piece of filmmaking, mainly because it involves Jessica Biel getting shot in the head with a nail gun - but due to financial problems and production snags, it has been sitting on the shelf incomplete since 2008.

We've now learned that after one-on-one negotiations fell apart with financier Ronald Tutor, Russell has walked away from the project, and it will be completed by someone else!

Russell says:

"This has been a painful process for me. The multiple production delays and stoppages, which were caused by David Bergstein and preceded Ron Tutor's direct involvement with me, have now spanned two years, and the circumstances under which the film would now be completed are much different on several fundamental levels than when we embarked several years ago. I, unfortunately, am no longer involved in the project and cannot call it 'my' film. I wish Ron Tutor well."

Tutor counters:

"Russell conducted himself like a perfect gentleman. I understood his position. It really didn't have anything to do with him but with others, and we just reached a point where I couldn't do what he wanted. But it was a decent negotiation between the two of us. No lawyers. No idle threats, just two people trying to clean something up, and we couldn't get there. It was surprising and disappointing, but I understood."

Ha! We're sure he was completely level-headed and rational!

Once a new director is hired, Biel and co-star Tracy Morgan will be expected to participate in re-shoots.

YEESH! It sounds to use like there is no chance of making back all of the money that's gone into this thing! First James Caan walks off the set because he can't deal with Russell's crazy, and now this!

And just in case you're curious to see the director conducting himself like a 'perfect gentleman,' here he is with Lily Tomlin on the set of I Heart Huckabees (below)!

Filed under: Film FlickersTwitter

wenn2639794jb.jpg

We want to believe you, Ian McKellan! But with all of the pre-production dramz, we just don't know!

Despite all this shiz that has stopped the production of The Hobbit from moving forward, Gandalf the Grey himself took to Twitter to assure fans that The Hobbit is still happening, despite losing its director, Guillermo del Toro!

He wrote:

"Hobbit" sets are ready, script ready and movie is casting this month. Fans are not to worry. The films will get made. I suspect we'll start shooting at end of this year.

Yeah. We suspect about 18 more snags in the plan!

LOLz!

What do U think?? Will The Hobbit ever see the light of day??

P.S. CLICK HERE to "follow" Perez on Twitter!!

Will Smith Makes A Stink On Set Of His Wife's Show!!

wenn2789937jb.jpg

Tisk, tisk!

Will Smith, who is a co-producer on his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's hit series, HawthoRNe, is apparently causing serious delays in production of the show's second season because he keeps demanding massive re-writes to the storylines!!

Sources claim:

"He is not currently shooting a movie, so he's been a constant on the set in recent weeks. He's been inserting his input and requesting so many changes to the script that it pushed back the production schedule tremendously and caused everything to spiral out of control. Everyone is praying for him to book a new movie so that he will go away."

Although he's certainly allowed to have some creative control if he's a producer, he should probably lay off! The first season did really well, why mess with that??

We're sure he'll get bored with playing producer and go shoot Men In Black III sooner or later!!
