Saturday, May 28, 2005: RING 3:
Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald, the husband-and-wife dynamic producing duo, confirmed they are developing a third,
scaled-down RING movie. In a recent news conference, they said the film won't necessarily need the same cast of Naomi Watts
and the boy who plays her son, David Dorfman, who were in the first two horror movies. While out promoting their new film, THE
ISLAND, they added, "We actually have a kind of cool approach to it. That's in the beginning stages. It's easy to scale down Ring 3
as a small picture that's not incredibly expensive. By its very nature it can be a small movie and doesn't need the same cast."
The May 25 season finale of ABC's LOST averaged 20.7 million viewers and a very healthy 7.8 rating in the key demographic of
adults 18-49, the series' third-best performance, behind only two January episodes that followed a month-long hiatus.
MEMORIAL DAY ACTIVITIES:
Here in Washington, Memorial Day is always a big celebration. This year, as in years past, a number of big-name actors will provide
entertainment -- and everyone will be able to share in on the festivities -- PBS will broadcast the event Sunday, May 29, from the
West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
Gary Sinise (who has spent a great deal of time going out to entertain troops) from CSI: NY also leads the Lt. Dan Band, named for
his character in the Oscar-winning 1994 movie "Forrest Gump." The band will join Vanessa Williams, Joe Mantegna, country music's
Trace Adkins and other talents in the 2005 National Memorial Day Concert. "We go out and play for the troops all the time," Sinise
says of his band. "We've done several shows in the United States, and we've been over to Korea and Singapore. This is just a fantastic
event, and we're honored to be a part of it. We're flying to it straight from a USO tour of Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom."
Busy with acting even before he began "CSI: NY," which starts its second season this fall, Sinise admits he hasn't seen a full National
Memorial Day Concert. "I knew there was a big Memorial Day celebration in Washington, D.C.," he says, "and I had thought about being
a part of it at one point. I was actually planning to go from the U.K. to Afghanistan to visit the troops, but we thought being a part of
this event was something we might not get to do again."
This year's concert focuses on the 60th anniversary of Iwo Jima and on the current campaign in Iraq. The program also includes a
tribute -- led by retired Gen. Colin Powell - to Ossie Davis, the esteemed actor who was the longtime host of the concert.
George Lucas' STAR WARS: EPISODE III REVENGE OF THE SITH has tied the record set by SPIDER-MAN 2 for fastest to the $200
million mark in just eight days. The third and final prequel has amassed $200.4 million in the time frame and already $356.9
million worldwide. REVENGE OF THE SITH has climbed to the 59th spot on the all-time domestic blockbuster list in its first week
and is currently at #92 on the all-time worldwide list. It is expected to move up significantly on both lists over the Memorial Day
holiday weekend. EPISODE III has also surpassed Sony's HITCH ($177.6 million) to become the biggest movie of 2005 so far
in North America.
JOHN CARTER OF MARS:
Screenwriter Ehren Kruger is a busy man these days. Two of his projects are coming out this summer, BROTHERS GRIMM and THE
SKELETON KEY. He is busy with scripts for BLOOD AND CHOCOLATE and JOHN CARTER OF MARS. “I’m in the writing process for
JOHN CARTER OF MARS, working with the director — [Sky Captain’s] Kerry Conran,” says Kruger of the Edgar Rice Burroughs
adaptation. “He’s in, too, with his visual design team — the effects, and the sort of outlandish worlds that need to be created
for that. He has to design all that. So we’re pretty [well] along with the script. It’s a faithful adaptation to the novels, but the
novels were written in the teens and ’20s, so there’s some degree of modernization just to the tone of them. But in terms to
the story, we are trying to be as faithful as we can because those novels inspired a lot of the science fiction and fantasy that
came later in the century.”

The only item up at e-bay right now is the Book of G'Kar -- yes, the book where "Citizen G'Kar began to set down his philosophy,
what he had learned about justice, revenge, compassion, the purpose of life, and maybe most important of all, what he had
learned about forgiveness. We would frequently see him writing in this book, first in jail, then later, as we tracked his growth
from a warrior into a statesman and deeply religious figure."

then, he’s directed more than 50 Stargate adventures, including several instalments of its sister series Stargate
Atlantis. It’s been quite a memorable experience for him in more ways than one. Also in this issue, Battlestar Galactica
co-executive producer and writer Toni Graphia explains how the hit Sci-Fi show is set to explore darker territory in its
second season as the Cylon menace spreads

IDW Publishing has released additional details about Spike: Old Times, a 48-page one-shot in August featuring the character
from the Angel television series.
Here's how IDW describes the book, which is written by Peter David and drawn by Fernando Goni:
"On a dark night in the 1880s, an elegant woman, named Cecily humiliates William, a young poet who flees into the night... not
realizing it would turn out to be the first night of the rest of his unlife. Now, over a century later, the elegant Cecily is a vengeance
demon known as Halfrek is aiming to destroy yet another young poet. But this time, William the Vampire‹the renowned Spike‹is at
hand to even the odds."
"I always figured the business of having Spike and Halfrek 'recognize' each other in the episode 'Older and Far Away' was nothing
but an in-joke shout-out to actress Kali Rocha's having played both Halfrek and, in the previous season's episode Fool for Love,
Spike's lost love, Cecily," David said.
"But in the Whedon-verse, there's no such thing as an in-joke that can't be milked for all it's worth. And I figured there was plenty
worth milking here. Quite simply, it was an episode that I wanted to see, and since it can't ever be done by Mutant Enemy, writing
the story myself is the next best thing
