lance_armstrong_7_fingersMatt Damon is currently in talks to star in the long awaited Lance Armstrong bio pic from director Frank Marshall.   The project had been in had been in the works for years with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star at one time.  And as far back as the summer of 2005 the film crew captured Armstrong’s seventh Tour de France victory, hoping to include the footage in the final film.  The director promises the film “won’t be a puff piece.”  Its adapted Armstrong’s best selling autobiography “It’s Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life.”  Frank Marshall is more known for being a highly successful producer for such films as Raiders of the Lost Ark and more recently the Oscar winning The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.  This will be his fifth film as a director in a filmography that includes other true life stories such as 2006’s Eight Below and 1993’s Alive.  Damon has been on and off the project since 2006 but now it looks like real negotiations are taking place.



anna-faris-not-deepthroatThree of today’s most beloved comedians have signed up for Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.  Anna Faris, Christina Applegate, and Amy Pohler will be voicing love interests and rival band The Chipettes.  The sequel to the 2006 surprise hit is set for a Christmas day release this year.  And don’t fret David Cross fans, he will be returning for the squeakquel in all his glory.

Ok it’s not much of a traditional teaser trailer at all.  It is simply Michael Moore speaking to the audience and telling his humble opinion.  He has an axe to grind with these trillion dollar sized bailouts.  But this time I don’t think very many people will be offended by what he says.  Most Americans are not at all happy with the onslaught of government bailouts for “too big to fail” corporations.  He’s definitely got my attention.
