LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN

Comics Continuum has a note about the upcoming DVD for the Alan Moore adaptation, discussing actor, visual effects and producer commentaries and twelve deleted scenes.

X-MEN 3

Superherohype caught a note from the Sydney Morning Herald about the "X-Men" franchise. Producer Lauren Shuler Donner told them that a new X-movie followed by a Wolverine spin-off, both featuring Hugh Jackman. "The ideal thing will be to do Wolverine after X-Men 3 and that's what we plan to do," Shuler Donner said. "We'll probably develop Wolverine at the same time, but we'll do X-3 then we'll do Wolverine."

DOCTOR WHO

Neil Gaiman noted on his online blog that he'd like to write an episode of the proposed "Doctor Who" series, but notes, "It took five years to find time to write a Babylon 5 episode, of course ..."

MORT THE DEAD TEENAGER

Yahoo! Movies notes Quentin Tarantino is attached as an executive producer, Dean Paras ("Hairshirt") as director, Jim Cooper on script and Elijah Wood is being courted for the title role, returning to the world of the living to allegedly woo Jessica Simpson. Right.
