Watch out, Kathryn! You've got some competition.
Back in July, we learned that Kathryn Bigelow's Navy SEAL Team 6/Osama bin Laden movie was in the works, and it was set for release on October 12th, 2012 by Sony Pictures.
Now, we're hearing that agents are shopping around Chuck Pfaffer's new book entitled SEAL Target Geronimo: The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden, and it sounds like A LOT of interest by studios and producers is expected.
The book comes out

She should totally take this role! Mutants instead of vampires would be a good change of pace for her…
Earlier this month, we weren't overly enthused to hear that Kate Beckinsale had started production on a fourth Underworld film, although we were glad to hear that she was working!
Now, Kate's been given a chance to expand her horizons! She's been offered a female lead role opposite Colin Farrell in Sony Pictures' Total Recall remake.
If she signs on to the project, she'll be starring in the role of Lori, who was previously played by Sharon Stone in the original version.
Given the fact that the film's director Len Wiseman previously directed Kate in two Underworld movies AND since he's her husband, we're thinking she'll probs attach herself to this project sooner than later.
Would U like to see Kate Beckinsale in the Total Recall remake?

We're kidding! It's only the zombies you have to worry about it. In this movie, the robots are friendly!
Sony Pictures and Platinum Dunes have teamed up for a big screen adaptation of IDW comic book Zombies Vs. Robots.
Looks like the film will be based on a spec script called Inherit the Earth, which was derived from the comic series.
We're not 100% sure which title they'll be using, but we definitely think Zombies Vs. Robots is the way to go. It'll attract much more attention.
The film's story revolves around "a young girl who is the last survivor on earth, and is protected by a group of robots from a pack of zombies that are intelligent and evolved."
Sounds interesting enough. We MAY be getting close to capacity as far as our interest in zombie movies is concerned, but there haven't been TOO many robot ones lately. We can give this one a shot!
Are U prepared for the robozombocalypse? How about just the zombie apocalypse?

So…is Bond back or isn't he?
Last month, we learned that the new Bond film had been given a release date of Nov 9 2012, yet it appears that MGM is still trying to secure a distribution deal for the film.
Sources say that MGM had previously been talking to Paramount about distribution, but when things didn't work out, they moved on to Sony Pictures, and are now close to securing a deal there.
Looks like the Nov 9 2012 release date for Bond 23 stands. Hopefully they're able to figure out everything asap so they can continue moving forward with the project.
And while you're at it, MGM, why don't you sign a deal with Javier Bardem as well! He'd make a GREAT bad guy!!!

We bet there are a lot of people who missed it the first time around and want to see it on the big screen!
Due to its overwhelming critical and commercial success, The Social Network is being prepped for a theatrical re-release on January 7th in about 600 theaters all over the country - just days before its debut on DVD January 11th!
Jeff Blake, Sony Pictures' chairman of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, explains:
“At the box office, this film showed true staying power, grossing more than four times its opening weekend gross – a rare accomplishment when the average for wide releases last year was below three times its opening weekend gross."
That IS impressive!
We definitely think it deserves a second round in theaters!
What do U think?? Will U be seeing The Social Network again, or will U just wait for the DVD?
