Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash update:
New Line's Jeff Katz talked about the scripttreatment he wrote for the Freddy vs. Jason sequel, which involves
a new character, Evil Dead's Ash:
"There's nothing official on the Freddy Vs. Jason 2 front yet, but I wrote the treatment and we're all very excited about it. It's not about box office and what would make for the most commercial sequel. It's about delivering a story that will be better than the first and a story that makes sense given the continuity of the franchises."

X-men 3 writer found!:
Simon Kinberg will write the screenplay for X3. He also worked on other Marvel projects including
Fantastic Four and Elektra. Here's what he had to say:
"I'm a religious reader of the comics, and I loved the first two movies. I had a great experience with Fox and Marvel on the other projects, and when they came to me and asked me if I had any interest in X3, I was ecstatic. I grew up on them, and I love these comics, and it's exciting to take a whack at making the third the biggest and best in the trilogy; it's our RETURN OF THE KING."

Moviehole posted a Mummy 3 update. The site reported that director Stephen Sommers considers to cast Oded Fehr in the leading role and not Brendan Fraser. Fehr recently starred in the Resident Evil sequel. Having a lesser name carry the film doesn't matter anyway because the real star of the movie will be the special effects.
Team America fires composer:
Marc Shaiman's score for Team America: World Police has been rejected and the movie's creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone
