Just forget the words and sing along

Yay! I'm done school early! Here's some miscellaneous movie news tidbits before I go:

Puss in Boots - No, it's not a new version of the classic fairy tale. It's the comedic sidekick from Shrek 2 in his own movie. It'll be straight-to-video. The writers of the Lizzy McGuire Movie have been hired to write it. No word yet if Antonio Banderas will be back.

Mrs. Doubtfire 2 - Wow! It must be pointless sequel day. Writer/stand-up comic/actress Bonnie Hunt will be writing the script. Negotiations are underway to get Robin Williams back.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - Movie #5 will be directed by David Yates. Yates is a veteran of British television. The fifth Potter saga will be scripted by Michael Goldenberg. Chris Columbus, director of the first two films, is still on board as a producer. Summer 2007 is the most likely release.

The Watchmen - Another new director for the movie version of the classic graphic novel. Now, Paul Greengrass is the guy in charge. Greengrass directed last summer's The Bourne Supremacy. He replaces Darren Aronofsky, who left to go do his long-stuck-in-development sci-fi epic The Fountain.

Now, I'm off!

Next Issue...Giants of Iron
