Entertainment News of Interest (To Me)
Fascinating things have come up at last weeks Comic-Con in San Diego and elsewhere:
- Next spring, we have a 'Heroes' spinoff called "Origins" to look forward to, and Kevin Smith will Direct an 'Origins' Episode
- EW got an exclusive interview with Dan Radcliffe on the final Harry Potter book. Warning: *spoilers* (if you haven't finished it)
- NBC's Bionic Woman, coming this fall to the small screen, cast includes Galactica's Katee Sackhoff who has no fashion taste, as witnessed by these awful photos from the Comic-Con
- Good and bad news for Joss Whedon fans. Joss is in talks with the BBC to do Ripper, the Buffy prequel. For us Firefly fans, this probably means no Serenity 2: Bigger Damn Movie. Since Nathan Fillion may be joining Desperate Housewives, next spring on Fox Summer Glau will be a female terminator in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Jewel Staite has joined Stargate Atlantis, etc., it all seems less than likely. Would you pay $11,000 to have dinner with Joss? I wish I could've =)
- Peter Jackson has finished a screenplay of Alice Sebold's Lovely Bones; Rachel Weisz and Stanley Tucci reportedly part of the cast.
And that's all she wrote this morning.
