Got some morning movie news tidbits for you:

Batman Begins - The composers have been announced. Yes, I love my film scores, superhero themes specifically, so I was wondering if Danny Elfman would be having another go with the Bat. But no. The latest Batman score will mark the first collaberation between Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard. Zimmer did The Rock, Armageddon, Crimson Tide and won an Oscar for The Lion King. Howard has done M. Night Shamylan's films, Dances With Wolves, The Fugitive, Space Jam, Treasure Planet and lots more.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Speaking of Elfman, he is naturally doing the score for Tim Burton's next film; the remake of the Roald Dahl classic. And, in a recent interview, Elfman revealed that not only is he doing the score, he is also doing the voices of the Oompa Loompas.

Alvin and the Chipmunks - Oh, God. They're doing a live-action movie version. Alvin, Simon, and Theodore are going to be CGI, and the humans will be humans. It's being made by 20th Century Fox, who made the live-action/CGI movie version of Garfield.

Did I mention my sister, one of the world's biggest Garfield fans, hated Garfield: The Movie? Well, she does.

Next Issue...Enter the Producer!
