Brusimm Cinema Static Movie NewsI got a few pieces of web-bait to chat about, so here goes some movie news for ya all!

Jeremy Renner, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

If you were patiently waiting for the next Jeremy Renner or Gemma Arterton movie to come out, like say the fantasy tale of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters…  keep waiting.  The Witch Hunters are likely going to be hunting in 3D when it does come out and the production delay could be from that business decision.

Paramount has delayed the release date of this movie by almost a year, to January 11th, 2013.  Inside sources say it’s for post-production 3D conversion.

That’s crap.  Live-action 3D is a waste of everyone’s money.  But hey, someone somewhere will pay the few extra bucks to make it worth their while.  At least we’ll get to see Renner in The Avengers!

Lindsay Lohan

They Say that Lindsay Lohan is in talks to portray Elizabeth Taylor.  Seriously?  Well, OK, maybe.  But that’s a big risk.  They’ll have to schedule filming around her community service or jail-time schedule.

And from what I’ve seen, that seems to be a rather serious role for our trouble brewing actress.  But hey, maybe she’s turned over a new leaf.

The Avengers

Marvel and Playdom are putting together yet another game for Facebook, as if there aren’t enough of those time-sinks there already….

It’s called Marvel: Avengers Alliance and will present an alternate story in association with the Joss Whedon directed movie, The Avengers.

In this game, you are a SHIELD agent, and you have to deal with Doctor Doom, Loki, The Red Skull, and Magneto.  To tackle these baddies, you have to recruit some superheroes that will be featured in the online game.

Marvel: Avengers Alliance will be available during the first quarter of 2012.

Katee Sackhoff Looking At Riddick Sequel

Katee Sackhoff

For the Katee Sackhoff fan in all of us, it looks like Katee is in the final stage of negotiations to join the cast of the third Riddick movie starring Vin Diesel.

If all works out with the contract negotiations, she’ll be playing the female lead opposite Vin Diesel.

Her role will be Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tracking Riddick.

Folks are calling this the untitled Chronicles Of Riddick sequel.  But I suspect, if my sources are right, that it will be titled Riddick: Dead Man Stalking.

I could be wrong… but hey, for now, that’s what I’m going with because I was paying attention one day and this flew out of the pile of digital bits called the internet.
