MGM's financial woes resulted in a major casualty recently, with Guillermo Del Toro bowing out of the long-gestating Hobbit films. But no sooner had the Spanish wunderkind done so his producer Peter Jackson was in talks to direct the double feature Lord of the Rings prequel.

It's one point for censorship as a Japanese cinema chain has dropped The Cove, the documentary about that country's annual dolphin slaughter that has audiences everywhere enraged and upset.

Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds are reteaming, and the only reason that's good news is because if you didn't see The Proposal, you didn't see two comedy naturals at their best.

The Fright Night remake is shaping up with more cast members including Anton (Chekov from JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot) in the role as hero Charley and David 'Dr Who' Tennant.

A Green Lantern sequel's already in the works (even though the original is a ways off) but it looks like another tired superhero origin story. I'm more interested in The Green Hornet, which looks like great fun.

Clash of the Titans 2 is in the works, and Russell Crowe is going to play the late Edward Woodward's character in a big screen version of The Equalizer.

But big news behind the Hollywood curtain is the court ruling in favour of Google, who was being sued by a suite of studios led by Viacom (owner of Paramount) for copyright infringement. Go free speech?
