More casting on Baz Luhrmann's Australia as Ben Mendelsohn joins the fray. It looks like it'll eat up every high profile actor in Australia.

And it's with excitement fit to burst I just read Frank Darabont has the rights to early Stephen King novella The Long Walk, one he's keen to make in the coming year.

Back before anyone had even guessed The Long Walk's author (pen name Richard Bachman) was Stephen King, I thought it would make a brilliant idea for a movie – for some reason I saw Michael J Fox in the supporting role of Pete McVries.

Darabont also let fly on George Lucas for canning the Indy 4 script he (Darabont) and Spielberg were so excited about, citing it as 'a waste of a year' and one of the reason's he's turned his back of scripting.

If the Academy Award-worthy writing of the Star Wars prequels is anything to go by (NOT), we should all be very scared. Lucas – as producer – has veto power over anything written by Darabont.
