    Looks Like Dominic Cooper Has Joined Peter Dinklage In Sacha Gervasi’s ‘My Dinner With Hervé'

    If you've been reading us for a while, you'll know that one project we've been closely following is Sacha Gervasi's gestating biopic-ish "My Dinner With Hervé." The "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" director has been trying to get the project off the ground for a while now and it's easy to see why -- it's a fascinating tale. The film revolves around the last days of Hervé Villechaize, aka Tattoo—the famous dwarf on TV’s “Fantasy Island.” Written by and based on Gervasi’s true-life experiences, ‘Herve’ is both personal and semi-autobiographical — Gervasi was actually the last journalist to interview Villechaize before he committed suicide in 1993.

    Same Goes For You Al PacinoWith last year's "Grown Ups" we thought we had reached the nadir of Adam Sandler's laziness, a "movie" in which he conned Sony into paying for his best buddies and him to hang out, act like retards and get rewarded handsomely for the privilege. But it seems he has reached ...

    'Horrible Bosses' Director Seth Gordon Says 'King Of Kong' Remake Will Be Done In Faux-Doc Style

    Exclusive: Director Seth Gordon, the man behind the cameras of "Four Christmases" and this weekend's "Horrible Bosses" still has people talking about his debut feature, the documentary "The King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters" four years since it hit theaters. The sleeper sensation was an unlikely hit, tracking Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe as they slugged out to wear the crown as the champion players of Donkey Kong. As funny and at times absurd as that story was, it was also unexpectedly tender and moving, and it's no surprise that New Line snapped up the rights to remake it into a feature film. And even as Gordon has gone on to work both i...
