    In Production: New Bond Secrets, Damon's Zoo Co-Star, Singh Directs One of Three Snow Whites

    - Writer Jeffery Deaver's The Bone Collector was made into a film back in 1999 starring Angelina Jolie and Denzel Washington. Now Ian Fleming Publications Ltd. has enlisted him to reinvent James Bond. Project X will be published in May and plot details are hush-hush, but Deaver did reveal to USA Today that the story "is set in the present day, in 2011. Bond is a young agent for the British secret service. He's 29 or 30 years old, and he's an Afghan war vet." Deaver is picking up the story from where Fleming's fourteen novels left off, not from the cinematic adaptations, he says: "I want to stay true to the original James Bond, who many people...

    Moguls and Movie Stars

    TCM’s 7-hour documentary, Moguls and Movie Stars, which began running today, is a sincere, engrossing and generally very well executed history of Hollywood, focused largely on the business side---the moguls and the studios---rather than the movie stars and directors. It is rich in facts and details about the beginnings of the movies, going from the primitive early work of the Lumiere brothers and Edison, and running with equal interest all the way through the rise and fall of the studio system. Christopher Plummer narrates with warm authority, and the whole endeavor is certainly worth the effort to see all seven hours. Of course, another...

    New York Jets Linebacker Bart Scott To Get 'Blind Side' Styled Biopic

    Ok, full disclosure (though probably not a major shock): we here at the Playlist are not really sports dudes/dudettes. Okay, some of us pay attention to the English Premier League but this writer in particular only found out this morning that the San Francisco Giants won the World Series and really couldn't tell you anything that's going on in the National Football League. At any rate, we're in the minority, and we know it. Every now and then Hollywood makes us pay attention to the sports world, and following the massive box office of last year's inspirational football film "The Blind Side" it's no surprise that they are looking to duplicate...
