Over at the Superman Homepage you will find a rare photo of
SUPERMAN RETURNS' Brandon Routh, in his Superman costume, holding up a car from the August 10th filming in Martin Place
(Sydney). There are also two video files: Bryan Singer doing his Superman impersonation and showing Brandon how he wants him
to position himself for this scene. The second video is a quick shot of Routh (not in costume) and Singer beneath the car as they
discuss the scene. This is a great website and a terrific way to keep up on this production.
HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE:
Over at The Leaky Cauldron , you can view an early preview of HARRY POTTER
AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, hopefully scenes from the new trailer, an early version of which was shown at Comic-Con International last
month. The footage gives a pretty good idea what to expect from the Tri-Wizard Tournament, including lots of scenes of Harry fighting
the dragon, plus there are brief glimpses of Hogwarts' new Professor of the Dark Arts, Mad-Eye Moody, as played by Brendan Gleeson,
and Harry's new love interest Cho Chang.
According to the New York Daily News and The Indy Experience, Steven Spielberg will be directing Liam Neeson as Abraham Lincoln in
a Lincoln bio-pic next Spring. Though Spielberg first considered Tom Hanks for the role, the plan seems to have the "Schindler's List"
actor in the role for filming. Neeson himself says "We're definitely going to do it. We've been working on it since November."
The story of a nation rent by war "speaks to our time," says Neeson. How the filming on this project will affect the schedule of
"Indiana Jones IV" is unsure.

Desperate Housewives 3.9

While out to promote his latest project, BROTHERS GRIMM, director Terry Gilliam said that his next movie, TIDELAND, deals with the
resilience of children in the face of grief and loss. "It's about what happens when you put a kid with an imagination in difficult
circumstances. It's really about [the] resilience of childhood, and I'm so bored about hearing about these little children that are
so victimized and are so weak. Children are the toughest creatures on the planet, and they're being protected. It's partly one
reason why I tried to keep Grimm as close to the original tales as possible." In TIDELAND, starring Jennifer Tilly, Janet McTeer
and Jeff Bridges, a girl loses her mother to a heroin overdose, then begins to communicate via her Barbie-doll heads. She befriends
a neighborhood woman who wears a beekeeper's veil and delves into her own fantasy world. Gilliam said the girl is played by Jodelle
Ferland, and he enthusiastically introduced the young actress last year at the Toronto International Film Festival just before he began
shooting. "She is a phenomenal little 9 1/2-year-old girl that plays the lead, and she's in every scene," Gilliam said.
The Hollywood Reporter indicates that 20th Century Fox is in talks with Bill Murray to once again provide the voice of Garfield in GARFIELD 2.
Breckin Meyer and Jennifer Love Hewitt have already signed on to the sequel. Fox is also in talks with Lucy Davis and Billy Connolly to join
the cast. Davis would play animal lover Abby Westminster, a fashionable professional who has been brought in to try and trap Lord Dargis,
to be played by Connelly, into revealing his evil plans. Hewitt's role will be greatly reduced because she is filming the new CBS series
Variety reports that Universal Pictures has made a preemptive deal for $600,000 against $1 million for David Loucka's supernatural
thriller DREAM HOUSE. The story centers on a man who moves his family into what appears to be the ideal residence in the country,
but ominous things are going on there. Daniel Bobker and THE SKELETON KEY's Ehren Kruger will produce. Stokely Chaffin will be
According to Variety, Warner Bros. Pictures has signed THE CELL's Tarsem to direct the remake of WESTWORLD. At one point Arnold
Schwarzenegger was looking to possibly star in the film but had to give that up when he was elected governor of California.
The original film starred Yul Brynner as a robotic gunfighter who turns an Old West vacation theme park into a nightmare for the
park's guests. No script has been written yet nor has a writer been attached.
Variety reports that DreamWorks is close to acquiring the film rights to Tom Clancy's videogame SPLINTER CELL, with Daniel Pyne
(The Manchurian Candidate) attached to write the script. The studio would take the project over from Paramount, where it was originally
set up last winter. Michael Ovitz, Clancy's longtime manager, is still producing. SPLINTER CELL, now in its third edition, follows the
adventures of government spy Sam Fisher as he's dispatched to infiltrate an international terrorist syndicate and stop a high-tech threat.
Clancy and Yves Guillemot, chief of videgame publisher Ubisoft, are executive producing.
DreamWorks' plans to revive spy MATT HELM and has signed Michael Brandt and Derek Haas to write a new pic. Brand & Haas recently
have been at work on adaptations of the comic "Wanted" and Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan novel "Red Rabbit". The duo will pen a contemporary
pic based on the subject of around two dozen novels by Donald Hamilton. Helm is a former spy during WWII who, upon retiring from his
top-secret organization, unsuccessfully attempts to put his past behind him. Columbia Pictures released four Matt Helm-inspired spy
spoofs starring Dean Martin starting in 1966. The first Helm book was "Death of a Citizen," published in 1960. DreamWorks has
dabbled with the idea of a Helm franchise before but it never came to fruition.

Here is a description:
Embark on the quest to find a new home planet for humanity in the year 2192 as the complete sci-fi epic Earth 2 lands on DVD
for the first time ever! From the producers of Miami Vice and ER comes the thrilling story of Devon Adair (Debrah Farentino),
who is struggling to find a healthy environment for her deathly ill son, Ulysses. Disregarding government orders, she puts together
an expedition to found a new civilization on an Earth-like planet 22 light years in the future. But after their ship crash-lands on the
wrong side of planet G889, the "colonists" quickly discover that their new home already has some very strange and hostile inhabitants.
Catch DVD-exclusive bonus features and join stellar guest stars including Tim Curry, Virginia Madsen, Terry O'Quinn and more on all
21 groundbreaking episodes of the Emmy-winning series that critics cheered "soars to new sci-fi heights."
Ranger Dave writes that the SciFi series SPACE: ABOVE AND BEYOND is due for release on October 4th. Bestbuy.com is
taking preorders for it. Amazon.com, however doesn't list it yet.
The television series "Space: Above and Beyond", created and produced by Glen Morgan and James Wong, chronicled the
interplanetary adventures of a Marine squadron battling hostile aliens in the years 2063-2064. Part (anti-)war drama, part
science fiction, it examined such themes as courage, loyalty and faith. Through the eyes of the Wild Cards, it explored what we,
as humans, live for... and what we would be willing to die for.
"Space" aired on Fox-TV in 1995 and 1996, but - despite critical praise, decent ratings, viewer support, and four Emmy Award
nominations - was cancelled.
