What is Movie News After Dark? After a whirlwind of SXSW action, it doesn’t even know anymore. Something about movie news. Interesting links, maybe. There may also be some fart jokes, but we’re trying to keep it classy. Hi, Mom! Also, tonight’s edition will prove how much this column’s author has been watching Cougar Town lately. Like Community‘s Abed Nadir, he would like to live in Cougar Town.
We begin tonight with a picture of Katee Sackhoff in Riddick 3 (ooh, la la — for the Battlestar Galactica babe, not another Riddick sequel). She will apparently play the baddie in the Vin Diesel-led film, some sort of alien bounty hunter who is more than meets the eye. Random thought: When are Katee Sackoff and Busy Philipps (Cougar Town reference #1) going to get together and do a sexy twins buddy cop movie? Strong female leads, people. Come on, Hollywood!
First, there’s a book called “Fifty Shades of Grey” that is Twilight fan fiction turned actual novel. It’s like porn, but for your mom. Ewww… Anyway, it’s being developed as a film by an anonymous, veteran producer, who will undoubtedly try to make truck loads of money off the Twilight name. Speaking of which, did you guys see that one episode of Cougar Town in which Courtney Cox talks about Twilight? Those guys can make anything funny.
Speaking of my favorite movie of 2012 thus far, The Raid composer Joe Trapanese is doing score for Tron: Uprising, Disney XD’s animated spin-off to last year’s Tron: Legacy. As if we weren’t already anticipating that show. Almost as much as that time Jules was going to break up with Jeff on Cougar Town. You knew it was going to be a big deal.
This Vulture article by Heather Havrilesky doesn’t exactly put the issue to rest, but it does present an interesting case for whether The Sopranos is better than The Shield. It also presents one helluva good read on the end of The Sopranos.
