Lots more photos of Optimus' head have surfaced at the Transformers Movie Pool.
Also, FilmJunk has a rumor that "80's rocker Stan Bush, known for his hit songs "Dare" and "The Touch" from the original animated Transformers movie, will be contributing a song to the upcoming Michael Bay live action flick as well. Bush e-mailed a Transformers fan site to let them know that he's currently in the studio with his producer, and that the song they are working on currently features 70+ tracks."
FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER
New photos of a green-screened Surfer (is that Doug Jones in the suit?) have surfaced on Flickr. Surftastic!
Sci Fi Wire has new quotes from producer Tim Kring saying that fans can look forward to team ups shortly. "As their destiny starts to sort of become intermingled with one another, yes, they have to form this sort of alliance with one another," Kring said. "And then, in a sense, join with each other in order to figure out what's going on. Every character has sort of a tiny piece of the puzzle. So the puzzle gets put together by the characters coming together. If you sort of look at it as kind of a funnel, it starts wide and starts to narrow. As these characters start to cross paths, you no longer have to tell eight stories. You can tell four stories or three stories. So there is a natural progression that's allowing us to tell less and less scattered stories."
THE DARK KNIGHT
Director Christopher Nolan talked to Esquire magazine who said there would be no Penguin in this film, but he'd love to have Hoffman. "I'd be more excited to have Philip Seymour Hoffman in the film than to have the Penguin. There are certain characters that are easier to mesh with the more real take on Batman we're doing. The Penguin would be tricky."
THAT'S A WRAP
Triskaidekaphobia? Not here.
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 (web site, MySpace blog) saying thank you for your time and indulgence, and "enough talk -- let's go make with the 'biff' and the 'pow' already."
