MEN IN BLACK 3D

Showbiz 411 reports the film is on with original stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. The film will also be getting the 3D treatment. "Sonnenfeld says it is so. Why not? Everything else is, and this is one movie that might be cool in the process," writes Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman. He says his info comes straight from director Barry Sonnenfeld at a cocktail party, but a setting like that is tough to get quotes, so Sonnefeld is only paraphrased. I suppose if he talked that freely, the film must be on. Well, once a script comes in.

Release date: TBA

IRON MAN 2

Scarlett Johanson tells the Sci Fi Movie page the following about her Black Widow costume: "I knew it was going to be some kind of sexy unitard, because I had researched the character in the comics. I've never worn anything like it before, so I had a freak-out moment that lasted about half a day, but then I said 'Okay, time to suck it up' and just went full force into getting in shape to wear the costume and perform the physical action so it looked just right." Meanwhile, The Los Angeles Times continues its countdown to the film's release with Jon Favreau discussing the cameo appearance of the late Adam Goldstein, also known as DJ AM. "We tried to make it respectful and for people who know him, they'll get a kick out of it and for people who don't it will sort of slide by without much notice," says the director.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., release date: May 7th, 2010

GREEN LANTERN

Today's set photo from the dedicated folks at Comic Book Movie features something I find interesting, Ryan Reynolds talking with director Martin Campbell:

Starring Ryan Reynolds, release date: June 17th, 2011

SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD

Superhero Hype and various other sites are reporting the film has received a PG-13 rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. Creator Bryan Lee O'Malley subsequently posted to his Twitter page, "no surprise to anyone who's read the books. They lack swearing, brutality, and titties." He subsequently added, "Some things in the books WOULD rate an R, you're correct. To that I say... Edgar Wright is an extremely clever man."

Starring Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, release date: August 13th 2010

WE3

Grant Morrison discusses with MTV News the difficulty in getting the film off the ground. "To me, if they make a movie of 'We3,' it's basically a new 'ET.' Everybody's going to be weeping as they walk out of the cinema at the end," says Morrison. The article makes mention of the graphic violence in the original series as a sticking point, but Morrison says his adaptation features less of the carnage. "In the script, we took all of that violence out. ['We3' artist] Frank Quitely only drew the violence because his kids were goading him on," he explained. "Unfortunately, it kind of scares people off, because they don't think it could be a family film.

Release date: TBA

THE BLACK PEARL

Deadline reports Mark Hamill has joined the board of a film investment firm. "The company plans to make movies budgeted up to $7 million. William Morris Endeavor agent Graham Taylor will be packaging BSF projects. As to what these projects are, all will be revealed during the Cannes Film Festival apparently – although there's been chatter that one will be an adaptation of Hamill's own comic book creation, 'The Black Pearl.'" Is this where he's getting the money to make it happen?

Release date: TBA

THE LOSERS

My review of the film is up here at CBR. I found it to be poppy, fun, and a memory of the sort of action movies I grew up with. It features people saying funny stuff and then shooting things. How can you go wrong with that?

Starring Jeffrey Dean Morgan, release date: April 23rd, 2010

BUCK ROGERS

Director Paul W.S. Anderson tells MTV News about his affinity for the character. "What fascinates me, and what I think fascinates a lot of people about 'Buck Rogers'... is taking a contemporary, modern-day, very relatable character and flinging him into the far future. ... He is one of us and then he... goes on this amazing journey. That's what appeals to me about the Buck Rogers character," he says.

Release date: TBA

TRON LEGACY

The LA Times has a complete write-up on the WonderCon ARG event from earlier in the month. They even have specially edited videos:

Starring Jeff Bridges, release date: December 17th, 2010

YOUNG JUSTICE

Though various voice actors have talked about it for months, DC finally confirmed the upcoming animated TV series, as we reported here at CBR yesterday. The show will feature Superboy, Robin, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Artemis (who appears to be Arrowette), and Aqualad.

Release date: TBA

PROJECT X

I'm seeing something pretty nifty tonight. Sadly, I can't talk about it ... which means I get to tease it until I can talk about it, kind of like I did with "Kick-Ass." I assure you it's cool. 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 being vague.
