Because right now, this project is her baby!

Kristen Stewart is in this weird limbo of her career. She doesn't have any movies in production at the moment and promotion for Breaking Dawn won't get into gear until at least October. What's a girl to do while her boyfriend is off in Toronto and her big franchise flick is actually giving her a break???

Take some time to spend with mom!

Will Emma Thompson Adopt Adapt Annie For Will Smith?

Filed under: Film FlickersWill Smith

She's their #1 choice!

As we all very well know, Will Smith and Jay-Z are planning on remaking the classic movie musical Annie for a new generation with Will's daughter Willow poised for the lead. It's been 30 years since John Huston wrote the original and Will and Jay reportedly want only the best to do his work justice.

That's why the duo are in negotiations with Oscar-winning screenwriter and actress Emma Thompson to re-adapt the screenplay!

Nice choice! We love her movies and we think she has the perfect sensibility for the task! She'd be a fool not to sign up! Tweens are going to eat this up!

Dinosaur Fans, Rejoice! Jurassic Park May Get The Reboot Treatment!

jurassic park may get reboot treatment

Is it actually going to happen this time?

Thousands of years ago, reports started up about the possibility of a fourth Jurassic Park film.

There were times where it really looked like it was going to happen! In fact, there was a point where it appeared that Keira Knightley had signed onto the project.

Now, we've learned that Steven Spielberg has been speaking with I Am Legend screenwriter Mark Protosevich about ideas for a Jurassic Park franchise reboot.

We've got mixed feelings about this, but we suppose this could be cool if done correctly AND if the dinosaurs aren't entirely CGI.

Bring back those animatronics, baby! Somehow, they're scarier.

Would U like to see Spielberg reboot the Jurassic Park franchise?

Hailee Steinfeld Doesn't Have To Get Nude In Romeo & Juliet After All

Filed under: Film FlickersEtc.

Hailee Steinfeld Doesn't Have To Get Nude

We be this is a load off her mind: Hailee Steinfeld won't have to disrobe in the new Romeo & Juliet movie!

Here's what the director himself had to say, after source like The View were up in arms over the idea of the 14 year old actress having to be nude in a film:

“In the original adaptation written by the Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes, there was a lovemaking scene that included nudity for the married Romeo and Juliet. This script was written with a 20-year-old actress in mind. As soon as Hailee Steinfeld was cast, all nudity and lovemaking have been excised from the script. It will be romantic and age-appropriate for a 14-year-old.”

Good!

Even with parental consent and all of that, we feel that this is definitely for the better. Fourteen is WAY too young for a scene like that!

Are U relieved to hear about this??

Zach Galifianakis Reveals Some Hangover III Deets!

Zach G Hangover III

Zach Galifianakis is HIGHlarious, there are no qualms about that from anyone.

What makes him interesting though, is that he's completely reluctant to accept his own fame but manages to balance the idea of it with getting to do what he loves. And that's why Rolling Stone interviewed him.

Embedded in the interview, though, happens to also be some possible Hangover III plot details!

Check it:

"They want to do a Hangover III," he says. "I'm getting fricking phone calls already." According to what he's heard, the plot ditches the format of the first two and focuses on his character escaping from a mental institution with help from the wolf pack.

We're glad they're straying from the formula, and it would be amazing if they went this idea! Couple it with what the screenwriter said he wanted to do with the ending:

"I think the third movie ends with Doug staring at a row of crosses in a graveyard. It’s everyone – his wife, his family is dead, everybody from the first movie is dead. Somebody shows up and tells him his dog is dead."

… and we think you've got yourself a darker, edgier, and probably funnier final film for the trilogy!

Let's hope these ideas come to fruition, or something like them, and that they stay away from the original formula!

How do U feel about that plot??

Twilight Author Stephenie Meyer To Cameo In Breaking Dawn!

Filed under: Film FlickersTwilight

This doesn't surprise us at all!

In fact, we think that it's only appropriate that she's present for the big day!

Twilight author Stephenie Meyer previously made a cameo in the film adaptation of the first book in the series as a diner patron, and now, we've gotten word that she, alongside screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg and producer Wyck Godfrey, will also be appearing in the upcoming concluding chapter, Breaking Dawn, Part 1, as a guest at Edward and Bella's wedding!

In fact, see if you can try and spot all three in the trailer (above)…we'd say around the :55 second mark!

It must have been such a surreal experience to be sitting there, watching characters that you've created come to life in such a huge way!

Congratulations, gurl! Hope it turned out exactly as you dreamed it to!
