THE DARK KNIGHT
Wanna be an extra in Chicago? Then you'll need to aim your browser here to get cast in "Rory's First Kiss," which is the code name the project is using to throw off ... well, almost nobody at this point.
As we like to do, news about one costumed billionaire follows another. Director Jon Favreau and actor Robert Downey, Jr. appeared in a video promo on Amazon.com explaining why the movie could be considered "'Chaplin' vs. 'Weird Science.'" Zany!
Hollywood type Roger Avary talked to Shock 'Til You Drop about adapting the Dan Brereton horror comic. "I'm seeing Dan [Brereton] next week -- he's going to be at Comic-Con," Avary said. "I'd love to see that made. I actually gave the comics to ['Beowulf' producer] Jeff Rapke and was like, 'Check this out, this is the sh*t!'"
Looking forward to hearing news about the sequel next week in San Diego? Tough luck -- the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Fox has cancelled its panel and is pulling out of the 'con altogether because effects aren't done.
I CAN'T WORK UNDER THESE CONDITIONS
We can't do this without you. The rumors, the scoops, the set photos -- they're all fueled by passionate fans emailing in the goods. The ones who ask, "What do you mean your sister's dating somebody who works for Miles Millar?" The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, somehow fresh comics reviews are online for your pleasure and "enough talk -- let's go make with the 'biff' and the 'pow' already."
