Today's show prep:

- Team America out today. Getting good reviews.

- How's this for movie news? Nicholas Cage as Skeletor. Male model Jason Lewis as He-Man. In a recent interview, that's what John Woo said he wants.

(Actually, a little editorial here. Skeletor wouldn't have to be a guy in make-up this time. You could use the technology they used for Gollum, actually remove Nicholas Cage's head, and put in a skull!)

- Michael Mann, who did "Heat," "The Insider," "Ali," and most recently "Collateral," is going to be doing a movie version of his groundbreaking TV show from the 1980s: Miami Vice. He wants Collin Farrel for the old Don Johnson role.

- New info on the "Transformers" movie. Proudcer Don Simpson has said that the Robert Zemeckis as director rumours are absolutly false. He and writer Tom DeSanto are looking for a new writer to polish off DeSanto's outline; they're looking for "a younger guy, someone who grew up with the mythology." I'M AVAILABLE!!

- Filming has begun on the long-awaited sequel to "The Mask of Zorro." "The Legend of Zorro" is now filming in Mexico. Filming should end in December. The plot is this...California is about to join the USA, and Zorro once again charges to the rescue to make sure it happens. Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are both back. In this sequel, they're married and have a 10-year old son...and the son doesn't know his dad's secret identity.

- More on the Dukes of Hazzard movie...Burt Reynolds as Boss Hogg. Willie Nelson as Uncle Jessie.

Next Issue...Showtime
