Several sites, including Comingsoon.net are reporting an announcement in Variety of the actors chosen to play the Warrirors Three: Stuart Townsend, Ray Stevenson, and Tadanobu Asano.

THE LOSERS

Zoe Saldana tells Comingsoon.net her character, Aisha, is "a blend of Uhura and Neytiri." Neytiri is her "Avatar" character. "Toss in a couple of guns and some tattoos - she's really badass. At times I was kind of afraid of her. I don't know why it's a PG-13 movie to be honest."

Meanwhile, Spoiler TV has another casting sheet for the film. This time, producers are looking for a "2 or 3 year old boy to play 2 year old, Caucasian with RED HAIR, an adorable toddler with an engaging personality, on set experience preferred.

LEFT 4 TREK

With this week, the Xmas shopping season really gets underway. I have a copy of "Left 4 Dead 2" on its way and I'm waffling on running out and getting "Star Trek," which is super-affordable, even in its Blu-Ray form. Oh, did I also mention "Fight Club" is out on Blu-Ray? Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous. The choice is yours. Fresh rumors and movie news every weekday morning. I am Erik Amaya bracing for the future threat of the offcial Xmas Shopping Season.
