Speaking of which…(a nicely linked newsround)

The man with the most unusual nose in movies, Adrien Brody, is starring in a movie called Splice. It also stars Sarah Polley from the Dawn Of The Dead remake (yum), and the intrepid pair study and tinker with things in their laboratory until they grow their own beastie baby from a mixture of genetics. Clearly, things are going to go wrong and I’ll put it down to the “unstable” formula that will cause the beastie baby to grow at an accelerated rate and start munching on people. Why’s this? Oh, because I really can’t see Cube director Vincenzo Natali making a family movie detailing the raucous antics of Benny The Beastie Baby whilst delivering a strong heartwarming message about how not to get involved with crack peddlers. Clip please? Thanks.

Speaking of which….

Brody’s one of the lead names joining Danny Trejo in Robert Rodriguez’s and Nimrod Antal’s Predators. Not who I’d had in mind at all, but then we got Trejo for the kick ass scenes, perhaps Brody’s going to inject some intelligence into it. The apparent plot is a human visit to the Predator’s home planet. I presume it has a name like Predatonius, Dreadlockia or at a push, Fangedvaginalips. Yet we will see a new insight into Predator cultures, see if they have pets, a crumbling economy, and adverts galore for companies offering good cash for your gold jewellery.Maybe not all of those things, but possibly rumoured is a Predator dog. Sigh. Interestingly, one name to the cast is a pleasant surprise. That name is Mahershalalhashbaz Ali! The surprise being “how the fuck do you pronounce that for an interview?“.

Another name rumoured to be on board is Topher Grace. Wait? That guy from That 70’s Show? That piss poor Venom? What?! Maybe it’s true, we just don’t know at this time. One thing’s for sure, if he is in, then he’s automatically secured the role Paul Reiser had in Aliens. I can’t imagine he’d be anything else.

Speaking of which….

A Venom movie is back on! Venom minus Topher (hoping) will be written by Gary Ross. Gary Ross wrote Big and along with also directed Seabiscuit and Pleasantville. He also wrote Lassie. Yeah. He’s writing Spidey 4 right now and is in talks with Sony to go over drafts originally written by Zombieland‘s Rhet Reese and Paul Wernick. Judging by the praise Zombieland’s been getting lately, I would’ve thought it’d make sense to just stick with their ideas. Hey, who am I, I don’t run these studios! But seriously, LASSIE. Also, Venom and Spider 4 are due to be released in the same year. That’s right, I don’t see it happening either.
