SPIDER-MAN 4

Movieline has word that actor John Malkovich is in negotiations to play the Vulture. The article also suggests Anne Hathaway will play a character named "Felicia Hardy," but not Black Cat. Instead, this character will become "The Vultress." As always, treat these sorts of unconfirmed reports with a healthy dose of skepticism.

Directed by Sam Raimi, release date: May 5th, 2011

JONAH HEX

The production is going into some reshoots early next year. SpoilerTV has a casting sheet for several characters including Hex's lost love Cassie and President Andrew Johnson. The shoot will be from January 18th to February 1st.

Starring Josh Brolin, release date: June 18th, 2010

MEN IN BLACK 3

Meanwhile, Josh Brolin might be trading in that Western scar for a nice clean suit. The LA Times' Hero Complex blog reports the actor may be considering a role in the third "Men in Black" film. "He could play a new single-monikered government agent, with Tommy Lee Jones' Agent K passing the baton to Brolin's character. Or he could play Agent K as a young man. Or something else entirely," according to the post.

Release date: TBA

DEADPOOL

MTV News continues its talk with Ryan Reynolds on all things Deadpool. Asked about playing two very different comic book characters in such close proximity, Reynolds says, "There's such a vast difference between the characters, and I think people forget that I'm an actor." Reynolds says he has had a take on the character for eight years and "the fact that this is even being considered as a franchise right now is truly one of the highlights of my entire career." Meanwhile, CHUD may have uncovered the identities of the writers of the film in the forms of "Zombieland" writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The article does caution this as a strong rumor, as CHUD could not confirm the writers' involvement.

Release date: TBA

RED

Warren Ellis answers some questions about the adaptation of his series over at his official site. "RED, the book, is 66 pages long. If you were to film 66 pages of comics, you might, might just about get 40 minutes of film out of it. If you added a musical number," he explains. The film will add more characters and situations. "It is in fact best to consider RED as a short story being adapted into film," continues Ellis. He does point to one particular feature of the film: "Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle."

Starring Bruce Willis, release date: November 19th, 2011

ZAPT!

According to Comics2Film at Mania.com, Denzel Washington is looking at picking up the Tokyopop book for adaption as a feature, with Washington producing.The project focuses on "the comedic adventures of an ordinary boy named Armand who gets drafted into an intergalactic police force. Now he has to deal with the the day-to-day hassles of school teachers, homework and bullies, knowing that at any moment he may get transported into space for duty."

Release date: TBA

BATMAN 3

Time for another Batman 3 item. Please keep in mind all rumors are suspect until there is an actual script, production office, and the Batmobile is seen filming in Chicago. Today, MTV News asks Morgan Freeman about the film. The actors response: ""I know -- I just know -- that Chris is working on number three. He couldn't possibly not be."There is video of this exchange featuring Matt Damon looking a little unnerved at the Batman line of questioning. Say, he'd make an offbeat Riddler, wouldn't he?

Release date: TBA

COLD SNAP

With a cold snap in the LA area, I've discovered the old wall mounted heater in my office doesn't exactly heat up. So, I'll be looking for a good deal on a space heater today. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, 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 shopping for bargains.
