By now you'll probably have heard that Peter Jckson has buried the hatchet with Bob Shaye of New Line and he's doing not one but two more Tolkein films, The Hobbit and another one that bridges it to the Holy Trilogy. Personally I found The Lovely Bones and Tintin intriguing, but does he really want to spend another 6-8 years of his life doing the same stuff again?

In the most exciting news in a long time, I heard ages ago in an interview that Frank Darabont that he held the rights to what must be one of Stephen King's greatest stories, The Long Walk. Reading it repeatedly, I imagined over and over what a great movie it'd make, and I heard recently that it's close to happening.

I've also just seen the Hellboy 2 trailer, and the franchise looks a lot like X Men, with the first one a little too uncertain of itself, a little stifled, a little indistinct, but the second one looking like a bigger, more confident beast that's enjoyed a bigger budget to widen the scope and vision.
