JUDGE DREDD

Finally confirming what has been known for weeks, Heat Vision reports Karl Urban has closed his deal to star in the film. "The comic is set in a future where police act as judge, jury and executioner. Urban will play Joe Dredd, the creme de la creme of the elite police corps," they write. So how many more "I am the Law!" jokes will I need? Also, this marks my first mention of the revilled Stallone version, just for future comparing and contrasting.

Release date: TBA

THOR

Pietro Filipponi at Comic Book Movie has an interview with Jaime Alexander, who plays Sif in the film. "She most definitely is "one of the guys'. She's a very talented, skilled warrior and can stand on her own against any villain in the film," she says of the character.

Starring Chris Hemsworth, release date: May 6th, 2011

GRAVEL

Warren Ellis tells MTV News work continues on his script for the film based on his on-going comic. "I'm actually writing a new William Gravel story. It's a horror-action thing in the whole combat-magician mode of those books," he says.

Release date: TBA

COWBOYS & ALIENS

Actor Noah Ringer posted this picture of the set to his Twitter account:

Starring Daniel Craig, release date: July 29th, 2011

FRANK MILLER

He's directing again. Gucci has made available a teaser for his forthcoming Gucci commercial:

Nice to see someone still believes in him.

Release date: September 12th, 2010

TORCHWOOD

Since I started adding "Doctor Who" to the Reel, I thought I might add the occasional "Torchwood" news, despite my ambivalent feelings toward it. Spoiler TV has descriptions of the key cast members. In addition to revealing Gwen's new life in South Wales, the document also gives some details to the plot and new character C.I.A. Agent Rex Matheson. "He’s 28, the golden boy. Has been, all his life. Harvard education, fast-tracker in the C.I.A., destined for success. Though he’s never taken it easy – Rex hustles, seduces and campaigns to get where he is today. He can talk his way into anything, then charm his way out, fast. He’s made a lot of enemies, but his friends and lovers would defend him to death," reveals the document. Matheson will have to find both Gwen and Captan Jack Harkness. At some point, a new Torchwood team will assemble.

Release date: TBA

THE WALKING DEAD

The official AMC blog has some new photos from the production. Here's my favorite of the lot:

Airdate: October

IN ANOTHER TOWN

So after a pretty good omelet, I'm set for my next assignment in somewhere other than Los Angeles. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take cit, 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 sandstorms ... and maybe sandworms.
