So sad! Elmore Leonard, legendary crime novelist and screenwriter, has passed.

Elmore was the man behind the hit films Get Shorty, Out Of Sight, and 3:10 To Yuma and FX's Justified, not to mention a million other things we love.

The writer suffered a stroke three weeks ago and was reported to be recovering. Unfortunately, his condition took a turn for the worse, and on Tuesday morning his researcher posted on his Facebook page:

James Franco Is Our Shaven Grace!

Filed under: Film FlickersJames Franco

We've seen James Franco with a beard, some stubble, heck even half a paint store's worth of Sherman Williams! However, it's been a while since we've seen him completely clean shaven.

Well, the wait is over! On Instagram today, James posted a pic of his smooth mug with the caption, "1st day of work."

And with a close shave like that, we wouldn't be surprised if he were working for Gillette! We're not Mach-ing either!

In all actuality, James is currently up in Montreal to work on the film Everything Will Be Fine, in which he plays a writer responsible for the death of a 12-year old.

What a trim-endously challenging part that could lead to Oscar buzz cut.

All in all, we like this look, James! It makes you appear Great and Powerful!

Weird Science Getting A Gritty R-Rated Remake!!!

Filed under: Film Flickers

weird science

Whoa, what??!!!

Universal had a great time with the HIGHlarious R-rated version of 21 Jump Street, and so did we!

Now they're giving screenwriter Michael Bacall a shot at re-imagining the number one teen sci-fi comedy about a wish-granting sex computer of all time!

That's right! They're remaking Weird Science!

The 1985 comedy classic starred Anthony Michael Hall and where-are-they-now-favorite Ilan Mitchell-Smith as two high school losers who use science and magic to create a sexy genie!

We're not sure we could buy Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum in this one, but we'd like to see them pop up somewhere!

Ooh, wait! Brainwave! Gender reversal! Two dorky girls can star with Channing as the sex computer!

No need to thank us, Mr. Bacall! Just make it amazing, and we'll call it even!

Quentin Tarantino Jogs It Up In Hollywood

quentin tarantino

Quentin Tarantino was spotted out and about in Hollywood yesterday.

When it comes to the celebrity fitness club, Tarantino isn't a regular like Russell Brand, Miley Cyrus or Kim Kardashian.

So it's extra great to see Tarantino out for a jog!

It was overcast and a little chilly (damn El Lay winter) but that didn't stop Quentin!

He knows that his creative brain is his money maker, and your brain can't run at its peak if your body is falling apart.

So he got his workout on!

Health, happiness and violent screenplays are just some of the things jogging could bring your way.

Especially if you're Quentin Tarantino! LOLz!

Way to get out there and pound the pavement!

50 Shades Of Grey Screenwriter Wants Real Boners: NC-17 Rating The Target!

fifty-shades-of-grey-caused-english-couple-to-divorce.jpg

Were you worried that the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey wasn't going to give you a massive boner like the book did?

Do not fear: Kelly Marcel is here!

She's the hired screenwriter… and she just dropped the bomb that she's writing the script with the goal of NC-17 in mind!

This is good news for people who want the film to be as close to the source material as possible without being flat-out pornography. This is bad news for people who want it to make a lot of money, because in the past NC-17 ratings can instantly kill a film’s box office potential because the film is too graphic for an average moviegoer to be comfortable with.

It probably has something to do with us being super cool with our imaginations being dirty, but us being uncomfortable seeing it for real. Doesn't really make sense, but that's the ridic way it works right now!!

Here's what Kelly said:
