Honest Abe a Vampire?…

Tim Burton’s next producing credit will go to “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” the story of our nation’s 16th president as a vampire killer. True Blood much? What will Hollywood think of next?! But, the film that is based on Seth Grahame-Smith’s recent novel is hitting it big with historians who say the film pays attention to fact and detail, despite its wacky fantasy elements. Benjamin Walker plays Abe, but you’ll have to wait until June 22nd to see him slay some vamps.

Check out the official trailer 20th Centruy Fox released yesterday:

Remaking Hollywood….

Just after Dreamworks announced last week they are remaking Hitchcock’s classic Rebecca, Paramount revealed today they are keeping up with the studio competition. The studio plans to remake another one of Hitchcock’s great films, Suspicion. No stars announced yet.

Do you think they can really top Cary Grant though? Perhaps George Clooney

Retelling Hollywood…

Guillermo del Toro signs on as director for Beauty, the retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Emma Watson is set to star; Wonder if she can make the transition from Hermione to Belle. You know del Toro from fantasy tales like Pans Labyrinth and Hellboy.

And new Hollywood…

Bradley Cooper and Cameron Diaz join the list of A-list stars presenting at the 84th Oscars on February 26th. Others on the long list to grace the stage at the Kodak Theatre are Emma Stone, Jennifer Lopez,  Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Tom Hanks.

Ugh, can we sneak in?
