WHO IS JAKE ELLIS?

It was announced yesterday that Fox has picked up the movie rights to Image Comics series "Who is Jake Ellis?" and has tapped "Harry Potter" director David Yates to helm the picture. The original comic (and its sequel, "Where is Jake Ellis?") was written by Nathan Edmondson with art by Tonci Zonjic, and centered around Jon Moore -- a man whose ghostly companion Jake Ellis assists him in becoming the best criminal in the world. When a job goes horribly wrong, Moore must go back to the facility where he was once held to uncover the truth about his imprisonment.

CRIMINAL

"Criminal" got a director in Kim Jee-Woon recently, and creator Ed Brubaker spoke with MTV about the decision to bring the acclaimed director onboard.

"My first reaction was shock because I love his work," Brubaker told MTV. "When [producers] Jamie [Patricof] and Lynette [Howell] sent me a short list of directors and I saw his name on it, I had to double-check he was really interested. Anyone who saw 'A Bittersweet Life' will know exactly why he's right for this movie."

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN

Marvel Television has released a new clip of "Ultimate Spider-Man's" Halloween episode featuring the Howling Commandos.
