    Glee Stars Hooked for Movies, Michael Shannon is Busy, Costner Sends Machines to Gulf

    - When Glee actors signed on for the show in 2008, 20th Century Fox also hooked them with the option of up to three movies. The show was a hit from the word go, and stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith lead a gang of multi-talented young stars who are in line to cash in on their small-screen success with big-screen features. Fans will likely eat them up. Michele is currently voicing Dorothy in 2012's animated Dorothy of Oz, and will star in horror film The Butcherhouse Chronicles, also set for 2012 release. UPDATE: But Glee stars may have to wait: Glee creator Ryan Murphy says they're focused on the series for now, and that no movie is being p...

    Bourne #4, Green Lantern Sequel, Monsterpocalypse and Inception Spot

    In Development: - Bourne #4 is coming. Tony Gilroy is back in the saddle to write The Bourne Legacy as a sequel, not prequel, to the franchise starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, as well as a "Bourne Bible." The film is not based on the book The Bourne Legacy (written by Eric Van Lustbader, not original novelist Robert Ludlum, who died in 2001) and is set for release in 2012. Damon says he won't do it unless director Paul Greengrass returns (Greengrass directed Ultimatum and Supremacy, while Doug Liman directed the 2002 kick-off The Bourne Identity). [Anne Thompson: I'd like to see Gilroy--in many ways the series' true creator, and a cracker...

    Sheen Heads for Jail, Fuqua Biopics Shakur, Anderson Casts Scientology Film, Boardwalk Empire Pops

    Charlie Sheen is choosing 30 days of jail time over probation, which was too risky, reports TMZ. In a plea bargain, Sheen will plead no contest to third-degree misdemeanor assault for hitting his wife Brooke Mueller on Christmas Day and immediately start to serve what will likely amount to 17 days in jail in Aspen, Colorado. He has to complete 36 hours of anger management before the hearing June 7. Mueller and Sheen both went into rehab following the incident, and Sheen took off time from his hit TV show Two and a Half Men. He'll get his time out of the way before filming begins in early August. The show has been renewed for two seasons; Shee...
