    UK Premiere For Oswald Boateng Documentary "A Man's Story" Announced!

    There hasn't been much news on this film since our last post on this, in December 2010.

    Two Tarzan Movies Are Cooking...

    As my Yiddish brothers and sisters would say, Oy vey... Read on below from Deadline:Warner Bros has been trying to get its Tarzan movie up and running for several years. Now, I'm hearing that the studio is trying again and word on the vine is they might well commission two separate scripts that'll be written simultaneously.

I also hear that the studio is talking to Craig Brewer about doing a different version of the picture. This has been done before on big pictures and usually the...
