Keanu Reeves Reveals Bill & Ted 3 Plot Details▼18 comments
Last Friday, it was revealed that Galaxy Quest director Dean Parisot has come aboard to helm the third, as-of-yet-untitled Bill & Ted adventure. In a conversation with GQ, Keanu Reeves (Ted) offered a few more plot details regarding Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon 's script.
"One of the plot points is that these two people have been crushed by the responsibility of having to write the greatest song ever written and to change the world," the actor explains. "And they haven't done it. So everybody is kind of like: 'Where is the song?; The guys have just drifted off into esoterica and lost their rock. And we go on this expedition, go into the future to find out if we wrote the song, and one future 'us' refuses to tell us, and another future 'us' blames us for their lives because we didn't write the song, so they're living this terrible life. In one version we're in jail; in another we're at some kind of highway motel and they hate us."
The original film, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure, hit theaters in 1989. It was followed by a sequel in 1991 titled Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey.

He's back to save the cosmic day.
"Doctor Who" returns for new escapades through space and time Sept. 1 on BBC America and BBC One.
"We have, I think, our biggest range of stories EVER," said Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer of the series. "We've got the return of the Daleks AND the Weeping Angels - both of them poll-topping Doctor Who adversaries - in cracking new stories, we've got Dinosaurs on a Spaceship (it's what you've always wanted), we've got a glorious western with a Cyborg Gunslinger, the most unusual invasion Earth story EVER, and location shooting in New York for the Pond finale."
Source: Doctor Who returns for new season Sept. 1 on BBC America
The seventh season (series) of "Doctor Who" launches this Saturday, Sept. 1 in both the U.K. and the U.S. However, the BBC is giving fans a early start with a five-part web series on YouTube, "Pond Life."
A new episode will debut every day of this week.
"Pond Life" is described as follows:
"'Pond Life' is the new five-part mini-adventure, with a new part every day, featuring the Doctor, Amy, Rory and some surprise familiar faces! En route to visit the Ponds the TARDIS' Helmic Regulator malfunctions, leaving the Doctor popping up everywhere in time and space. Will he ever make it back to them?"
Why is it dubbed "Pond Life?" One of the Doctor's current companions is Amy Pond (Karen Gillan). In December of 2011, the BBC's Steven Moffat confirmed that Amy and husband Rory William will be leaving "Doctor Who" during this season, in "heartbreaking" circumstances.
The current doctor is played by Matt Smith. He is the eleventh incarnation of the Doctor, who can regenerate his body when he is critically injured, but in doing so gains a new physical appearance and personality. This is, naturally, used whenever the series must change the actor who portrays the Doctor.
Smith is scheduled to portray the Doctor through at least 2014, which would carry the character past the show's 50th anniversary.
(Added from http://www.examiner.com/article/doctor-who-season-seven-online-prologue-pond-life ):
Arthur Darvill (Rory) spills this interesting tidbit: “When you watch all of these little 'Pond Life' episodes together, by the end of it there is a cliffhanger... which leads quite nicely into episode one season seven.”

Movie remakes and reboots seem to be more reviled than ever - but is all the hate justified?▼21 comments
Remake - Recreating a previously released film.
Reboot - Doing a "fresh start" re-launch of a previously established franchise or character.
Reinterpretation - Creating a unique new cinematic vision of literary source material.
This list consists of films currently in production or confirmed for production, in order of their release dates.
Release Date: November 2, 2012
Director: Dan Bradley
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, Josh Hutcherson, Isabel Lucas, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Connor Cruise
Category: Remake of the 1980s film.
The Red Dawn remake has been sitting on the shelf for well over a year, while some of the young actors in the cast have gone on to bigger and better films (see: Chris Hemsworth in Thor). However, even before the studio troubles, this remake was facing the challenge of trying to put a modern spin on the nightmare of a small U.S. town being invaded by foreign enemies - a story that's only more preposterous now than it was in the 1980s.
As luck would have it though, the increased fame of the cast may now help the Red Dawn remake snag an audience it never would've lured before.
All Quiet on the Western Front
Release Date: 2013
Director: Mimi Leder (Pay It Forward)
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director, the 1930 version of "All Quiet on the Western Front" was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation on its Film Registry. Cool as it is, though, that adaptation of Erich Remarque's classic novel about the horrors of trench warfare during World War I didn't feature Harry Potter. This one may not, either: Daniel Radcliffe had been attached, but now has apparently moved on, while the film has signed on director Mimi Leder, who is looking at a late 2012 shooting date. Whether she can talk Radcliffe into coming back remains to be seen.
Release Date: 2013
Cast: Willow Smith
Willow Smith is set to take on the role of a precocious girl with a knack for singing and a multi-millionaire daddy. Hmm. But Smith isn't the only big name attached to the remake of the 1982 hit (which was based on a musical, which was based on a comic strip, which was based on ur mom); not only is her father, Will Smith, co-producing alongside Jay-Z, but Emma Thompson is also on board as the original screenwriter, though rewrites have since been ordered. Sounds like a winner.
A Star Is Born
Release Date: 2013
Director: Clint Eastwood
Cast: Beyoncé, Tom Cruise (rumored)
This high-profile remake of the 1954 classic "A Star Is Born," which tells the very Hollywood story of the revenge, madness and cutthroat backstage politics faced by big-time movie stars, was supposed to already be in production. Then star Beyoncé went and got all preggers and the film, which is being directed by Clint Eastwood, had to be postponed. Still, now that her baby bump is an actual baby, things should take off again, maybe even in time for a 2013 release; filming could begin as early as the end of the summer.
Mad Max: Fury Road
Release Date: 2013
Director: George Miller
Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz
Hardy follows up "Inception" and "The Dark Knight Rises" with an even more action-packed role; this new take on Mel Gibson's classic "Mad Max" reportedly features over 300 different stunts. Gibson isn't expected to appear in the film, which may be a good thing considering his current status as Hollywood pariah. Filming is currently underway.
Release Date: March 15, 2013
Director: Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don't Cry)
Cast: Chloe Moretz, Judy Greer, Julianne Moore, Portia Doubleday
Back in 1976, audiences shivered at the sight of Sissy Spacek being doused with pig's blood by a-hole high school students and then taking her revenge through the therapeutic application of telekinesis. Considering how iconic that film has become in the annals of horror movies, remaking it will be a tall task, but MGM has taken a big step in the right direction by signing on "Kick-Ass" star Chloe Grace Moretz to play the lead. And the director is someone who knows a thing or two about the difficulties that face girls growing up these days.
Release Date: April 12, 2013
Director: Fede Alvarez (Panic Attack!)
Cast: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez and Jessica Lucas
Category: Remake of the 1981 film.
Sam Raimi's Evil Dead is considered a horror movie cult-classic - hence why that adoration has turned to hate for this upcoming remake, which is allegedly going to be more grounded and gritty than its campy predecessor. As many ED fans will inform you (ad nauseam) - camp and gore is what made the original great.
On the plus side: Sam Raimi himself is producing the remake, as well as helping out Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody (Young Adult, Juno) with scripting duties. However, until we know more, it's hard to say either way whether this is going to be a success or a failure. But if icon Bruce Campbell doesn't make at least some sort of cameo...FAIL will definitely be the verdict.
The Lone Ranger
Release Date: May 31, 2013
Director: Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy)
Cast: Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson
Category: Movie reboot of the classic Lone Ranger radio/TV show.
Disney's updated take on The Lone Ranger is another reboot that's been plagued with problems; from the script, to the budget, to the casting search. Still, with the budget now reduced and production back on track, the debate is once again raging about whether this film should exist at all.
Director Gore Verbinski took the Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride and turned it into a hit cinematic trilogy - but his take on the Ranger - in which the cowboy (Hammer) is something of a comedic dunce and his Native American sidekick, Tonto (Depp), serves as the real brains - has been a major turnoff for older fans.
Release Date: July 26, 2013
Director: Kenny Ortega (High School Musical)
Category: Remake of the 1987 film.
For many people whose hearts were stolen by the tale of sheltered 'Baby' Houseman (Jennifer Grey) and bad boy dancing instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), the news of this remake is going to be akin to blaspheme. A different dance movie remake (Footloose) did well enough for itself recently, and the fact that this new Dirty Dancing will be directed by High School Musical helmer Kenny Ortega all but ensures that it will hold strong appeal for the tween-to-teenage crowd.
Line up a few big-name teen heartthrobs in the leading roles, and sad to say, another classic will have effectively been painted over with a hipper, booty-shaking, crotch-grinding modern sheen.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
Release Date: 2013
Director: David Fincher (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo)
Category: Reinterpretation of Jules Verne's classic adventure novel.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a movie do-over that people seem ok with. Disney's 1954 adaptation of Jules Verne's tale was a whimsical film filled with sea shanties and crude effects. This new version will be a darker vision, focusing on the relationship between the mad Captain Nemo, Prof. Piere Aronnax and sailor Ned Land.
David Fincher is no stranger to dark worlds and dark characters, but his technical proficiency will surely be tested, as this new 20,000 Leauges will follow in Avatar's footsteps as a Live-action/CGI 3D blockbuster. The script is being handled by the likes of acclaimed writer Michael Chabon (Spider-Man 2) and Fincher's Se7en scribe Andrw Kevin Walker, so the combination of creative talent alone is enough to make us hopeful about this new 20,000 Leagues.
Release Date: 2013
Category: Reboot of The Crow movie franchise.
Relativity Media's reboot of The Crow has been a cursed endeavor. The reboot has burned through two directors - Stephen Norrington (Blade) and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) - as well as two possible leading men in Bradley Cooper and Mark Wahlberg. Action star Brandon Lee was killed while filming the original movie, so maybe these ill tidings are meant to serve as omens that putting this character on film is just a bad idea altogether...
...Then again, when does Hollywood ever heed the omens in front of its face? Expect to hear more about The Crow reboot in the near future.
Release Date: 2013
Director: José Padilha (Elite Squad)
Cast: Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson and Joel Kinnaman
Category: Reboot of the Robocop movie franchise.
Robocop is yet another case where remake/reboot hatred amongst fans has reached seething levels. The reboot's director, José Padilha, has gained a strong following both abroad and in the US thanks to Elite Squad, which holds the record as Brazil's highest-grossing movie release.
Padilha has already discussed some modern ideas and themes for the new Robocop, so this film will at least attempt to cover some new ground - but the real test will be who they cast in the leading role of Alex Murphy/Robocop. UPDATE: The Killing star Joel Kinnaman is an interesting choice for the lead role, but it will be Gary Oldman's supporting role that we suspect will earn respect for this reboot.
Release Date: 2013
Director: Tim Hill (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
Category: Remake of the 1986 film.
The Short Circuit remake has actually been in the works since 2009, with several writers and directors having joined and then left the project. As of now, Dimension Films has placed Chipmunks director Tim Hill in the director's chair, and if you're wondering what kind of film he'll likely make, allow us to answer that: a kid-friendly cash-grab.
Will lovable robot Johnny 5 end up singing a Lady Gaga number or hanging out with a Jersey Shore cast member?
Release Date: 2014
Director: Gareth Edwards
Category: Reboot of the Godzilla movie franchise.
The last time that Hollywood tried to reboot the Godzilla franchise, Matthew Broderick played hide-and-seek across Manhattan with a giant lizard. Needless to say, movie fans haven't been eager to open that door again.
This latest attempt to relaunch Godzilla in a movie franchise rests on the shoulders of director Gareth Edwards, who proved himself a creative sci-fi talent with his 2010 indie flick, Monsters. With a script being written by both David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and up-and-comer Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son), there's reason enough to be optimistic that this new group of filmmakers will get right what the previous group got so very wrong.
Release Date: 2014
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive)
Cast: Ryan Gosling and Rose Byrne
Category: Reinterpretation of the Logan's Run novel.
Anyone familiar with the work of auteur director Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Valhalla) should know that no matter what source he draws from, the end result is going to be very much his own work. And after seeing the...unique way Refn and his "muse" Ryan Gosling approached crime drama in Drive, it's really anybody's guess how the pair will tackle the dystopian themes of Logan's Run.
Refn informed us that he indeed has a fresh new vision of the classic tale in mind - though he's not sharing what that vision is. Since this project will mark Refn's first big-budget studio film, it's also questionable just how much creative freedom he will be allowed: don't be too surprised if "creative differences" ultimately knock this Run back to the starting line.

Phyllis Diller, the wild-haired, eccentrically-dressed performer credited with opening the doors of stand-up comedy to women, passed away at her home in Los Angeles. She was 95 years old.
She was born Phyllis Ada Driver on July 17, 1917 in Lima, Ohio to Perry Marcus and Frances Ada (Romshe) Driver. After graduating from Central High School, she headed to Chicago's Sherwood Music Conservatory, where she continued to study piano, with dreams of one day becoming a concert pianist. From the Conservatory, she transferred to Bluffton College in Ohio, where she became the school's newspaper editor and oversaw the publication of humor pieces.
In November 1939, at the age of 22, she married Sherwood Anderson Diller and gave birth to a son, Peter, in 1940. She would have five more children: Sally (1944), a son who died two weeks after being born (1945), Suzanne (1946), Stephanie (1948), and Perry (1950). Perry would later manage his mother's business affairs. Contrary to popular belief, she is no relation to Susan Lucci.
During WWII, the fledgling Diller clan moved to Michigan, where she began to mine her home-making experiences for jokes. She also worked as an advertising copywriter at this time. After the war, the Dillers moved to San Francisco, where she found work as a secretary at the radio station KROW. Later that year, she was in front of the camera for the first time with a program titled "Phyllis Dillis, the Homely Friendmaker" for Bay Area Radio-Television. She continued working in Bay Area television, this time at KGO-TV, where she was invited to participate in the station's show "Belfast Pop Club", co-hosted by Willard Anderson and Don Sherwood.
Both Anderson and Sherwood encouraged her to pursue her stand-up comedy ambitions, and in 1955, she landed a two-week gig at the venerable San Francisco nightclub, The Purple Onion, where her self-deprecating wit and unique laugh kept her on the stage for the better part of two years. The buzz created by her act reached Hollywood, and she made her first rounds on talk and variety shows with the likes of Jack Benny and Red Skelton.
Her appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jack Parr was her breakthrough, and led to recurring gigs as a contestant on "You Bet Your Life" with host Groucho Marx, "What's My Line?", "I've Got a Secret", and "Hollywood Squares". She appeared on the silver screen as well, making her debut in William Inge's drama, Splendor in the Grass. In 1961, she made her stage debut in The Dark at the Top of the Stairs. Appearances in films with Bob Hope -- Boy, Did I Get a Wrong Number!, The Private Navy of Sgt. O'Farrell, and Eight on the Lam -- began a lifelong bond between the two performers, who would co-star in numerous TV specials; in fact, Diller would be featured in every Bob Hope Christmas Special from 1965 through 1994. At the height of the Vietnam war in 1966, Diller joined Hope's USO troupe overseas.
As her star rose, husband Sherwood managed her career, though the relationship broke down and the couple divorced in 1965. By this point, however, Sherwood had become a staple of her act, as she made jokes about a husband named "Fang," while she smoked from a exaggerated cigarette holder -- which would become the comedienne's signature prop, paried with her increasingly outlandish wardrobe and hairstyles. Soon after her divorce, she married Ward Donovan, whom she met while appearing on stage in "Wonderful Town". Worth noting is the fact that Joan Rivers was one of her writers at this period in her career.
In the late 1960s, she starred in a pair of short-lived series, "The Pruitts of Southampton" and variety show "The Beautiful Phyllis Diller Show", though she found her greatest success elsewhere, from her continued guest appearances on talk, variety, and game shows. Toward the end of the decade, she began a successful string of guest spots on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In". Harkening back to her film debut, she gained notices for her work in the drama The Adding Machine with Milo O'Shea.
For three months, at the start of the 1970s, she appeared on Broadway in "Hello, Dolly!", stepping in for Carol Channing. On TV, she frequented on Dean Martin's celebrity roast specials and "the Mike Douglas Show". She cut hit comedy records, published her first books, and continued working the stand-up circuit. A new source of laughs -- her own plastic surgery -- stood in humorous contrast with other Hollywood performers.
Her on-screen career began to wane in late in the decade and into the 1980s, with guest appearances on "The Love Boat", "Celebrity Hot Potato", and a revamped version of "Hollywood Squares".
In the 1990s, roles in B movies Dr. Hackenstein and Silence of the Hams were minor cultural blips, but in 1998 she regained the spotlight for her voice role as the Queen ant in the second Pixar movie, A Bug's Life. She also had a recurring role on "The Bold and the Beautiful". A year later, she suffered a heart attack and was fitted with a pacemaker.
By 2002 she mostly retired from the stage and screen, though she appeared in the 2005 documentary The Aristocrats, notable because Diller, who steered clear of graphic material, did not recite the content of the famous dirty joke. An autobiography, Like a Lampshade in a Whorehouse, was published that same year; in 2006, a DVD version of the project was released, and she voiced several roles for "Robot Chicken" and, later, "Family Guy". She cameoed in 2007 on "Boston Legal" as a supposed lover of William Shatner's Denny Crane. A planned appearance later in the year for her 90th birthday on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" was canceled when she fractured her back.
Diller was a long-time member of the Society of Singers, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping singers in need. Two cities proclaimed "Phyllis Diller Day"s: Philadelphia (2001) and San Francisco (2006).
She is survived by daughters Sally and Suzanne and son Perry.

Nicolas Cage joins 'Expendables 3,' Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford also being eyed.▼10 comments
Franchise Producers want Wesley Snipes for the THREEQUEL as well.
If Avi Lerner gets his way, "The Expendables 3" could come loaded with a slew of A-list actors.
The Hollywood producer has revealed that not only will Nicolas Cage appear in the potential threequel (ok, so Cage isn't quite the "A-lister" he once was), he's also been talking to Clint Eastwood and Harrison Ford.
“We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford," said Lerner in an interview with Total Film. He then added: "[And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”
In addition to that already-considerable wish list, the producers are also hoping to rope Mickey Rourke in for a third entry - provided "The Wrestler" star doesn't get out of hand.
"We’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy," said Lerner. "I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return]”
In the meantime, "The Expendables 2" comes out this Friday.

The Wolverine' isn't an 'Origins' sequel says Hugh Jackman
ACTOR ALSO CLAIMS THE FOLLOW-UP 'WON'T BE OVERLOADED WITH MUTANTS'
Hugh Jackman wants fans to know his upcoming "Wolverine" follow-up is not a sequel to the poorly-received (albeit commercially successful) first movie.
“We’ve deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture," said the actor in an interview with Total Film magazine (via The Coventry Telegraph). “With an all-new cast and setting it in Japan, it’s going to give us a whole new visual aesthetic.”
Directed by Gavin Hood ("Tsotsi"), 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" grossed over $370 million worldwide but was generally savaged by critics (not to mention fans).
“The approach to character means we won’t be overloaded with mutants and teams and the like, so it’ll be more character-based," continued Jackman. "I think in many ways it will feel like a completely different X-Men film.”
"The Wolverine" is directed by James Mangold ("Walk the Line," "3:10 to Yuma") and co-stars Hiroyki Sanada as Yakuza crime boss Shingen Yashida and Tao Okamata as Logan's love interest Mariko (also Yashida's daughter). The film started production late last month in Australia, and will also shoot for several weeks in Japan. It's slated for release on July 26, 2013.

So it turns out Clint Eastwood was just kidding when he indicated that "Gran Torino" would be his final on-screen work. A solid Best Actor push from Warner Bros. that year didn't yield pay dirt, but it got the conversation chugging that the studio is sure to use again this year: He may have four Oscars, but he's never won for acting.
With that in mind, "Trouble with the Curve," from director Robert Lorenz (a homegrown Eastwood guy who's worked with the icon for years), could be a means to that end. The new trailer -- serendipitously launched on the 20th anniversary of "Unforgiven" -- plays it light but "meaningful" with its tease of an aging baseball scout (Eastwood) and his relationship with his daughter (Amy Adams) on a road trip.
"Trouble with the Curve" hits theaters September 21.

Better hide away your beloved felines, America - because ALF is back.
That's right! The studio that brought you last year's box-office blockbuster "The Smurfs" is now developing a big-screen version of the...erm, well-known 1980s sitcom, and like that earlier effort it'll take the form of a live-action/CGI hybrid probably starring some B-level actors.
Cashing in on/producing the project are Tom Patchett, the creator of the original series, and Paul Fusco, the puppeteer who also provided ALF's voice. While there will be no actual puppeteering needed for the film, which we assume will feature a fully-animated version of the lovable alien, Fusco is expected to return as the voice of the character.
This happy news was brought to you by The Hollywood Reporter.
"ALF," which ran on NBC from 1986-1990, centered on a furry, cat-eating alien who hides out with a suburban family after crash-landing on Earth. It did not win any Emmys.
Will you be seeing "ALF" the movie,? Sound off in the comments, why dont'cha!
