Mr. Big has finally taken the plunge. Sex and the City's Chris Noth married his longtime fiancée, Tara Wilson, earlier this month. Like Carrie and Big, the couple had known each other for 10 years before tying the knot. Noth and Wilson had been engaged since 2009 and they're already the parents of a 4-year-old son.
The PRC has some problems with Titanic in 3-D. Apparently, the scene in which Rose (Kate Winslet) takes off her top to pose for Jack's drawing has been censored in China, and only shows the actress from the neck up. The Chinese State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television has stated that the scene was censored "out of consideration of building a harmonious ethical social environment." Well if that was the reason, one would think they would have edited out that overplayed, over-the-top, overwrought song rather than Winslet's breasts.
It's official: Marc Anthony has filed for divorce from Jennifer Lopez. Unsurprisingly, "irreconcilable differences" were stated as the reason for the divorce on the papers filed April 9. He is asking for joint custody of the couple's 4-year-old twins.
Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose declined an induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame via a long, rambling, self-aggrandizing, and occasionally coherent open letter released yesterday. The induction ceremony is planned for Saturday in Cleveland, but Rose won't be there due to the fact that the "Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony doesn't appear to be somewhere (he's) actually wanted or respected." In addition, Rose wants to "let sleeping dogs lie or lying dogs sleep or whatever" and wants to let fans know that "maybe if it were you it'd be different. Maybe you'd do it for this reason or that. Peace, whatever."
In other angry (though far more intelligible) letter news, Mel Gibson and screenwriter Joe Eszterhas are publicly feuding after The Wrap obtained a 9-page letter Eszterhas sent to Gibson. The two had planned to collaborate on The Maccabbees, a movie that they had envisioned as a sort of "Jewish Braveheart." The collaboration apparently did not go well. The letter accuses Gibson of regularly making anti-Semitic slurs, dismissing the holocaust, and hating Jews. It also recounts instances of Gibson making violent threats against his ex-girlfriend, Oksana Gregorieva, as well as a description of a dinner party that ended up with Gibson screaming at a priest. Mel Gibson responded by writing an open letter to Eszterhas. Gibson stated that Eszterhas's letter was full of fabrications and that the real reason the collaboration failed was because of the poor quality of the script the screenwriter delivered.

Earlier this month, Harrison Ford was targeted for the adaptation of Ender's Game, based on the 1985 novel by Orson Scott Card. Coming from the sci-fi/Western mash-up of Cowboys and Aliens, it would seem that Ford would want to stay away from yet another sci-fi movie, as the actor's resume likes to switch genres from project to project. But with Ford being cast in the Jackie Robinson biopic 42, Ender's Game seemed like a good possibility, and finally it's official.
THR reports that Ford has signed on to play Colonel Hyrum Graff, Commander of Training for the International Fleet. In Ender's Game, humanity has been decimated by an insect-like alien race, with the government enlisting gifted children into battle school to train them to aid in the fight against the invaders. Bullied Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield, Hugo) masters a zero-gravity, laser-tag game and Graff sees his potential for saving humanity. Abigail Breslin has also been cast as Ender's sister.
Ender's Game is looking at a February production start under the direction of Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), who also adapted the script. Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) was previously cast as Petra Arkanian, Ender's most trusted ally, with Ben Kingsley (Hugo, Ghandi) playing Mazer Rackham, Ender's mentor. Brendan Meyer (Spooky Buddies) will play one of Ender's bullying classmates. Ender's Game is scheduled for release on March 15, 2013. Four actors join Linda lovelace biopic >> Posted 12.22.11 by Ryan

The Sex and the City 2 trailer has landed online. It doesn't reveal any major plot points — Samantha is still trolling for hot guys (as you'd expect) and has added a purse-sized dog to her fabulous bag collection (which you wouldn't expect).
However, we do find out that it's two years later and that the girls take a camel-riding, drink-sipping vacation. We also get to see the movie's product-placement poster in action.
But again, we're having a hard time remembering the first movie's happy ending, with Carrie and Big back together 4-Ever. Why do we see Carrie in her old apartment not once, but twice, in this minute-long preview? It would seem there's more relationship trauma in store for the couple. Posted 12.29.09 by reelz
The news just keeps getting better for Sex and the City fans.
According to Variety, Chris Noth, aka Mr. Big, has indeed signed on to reprise his role for the Sex and the City movie!! Given, it's hard to imagine they would have moved forward with the project without him, but still, it sure is nice to have it confirmed.
As we reported last month, Anne Hathaway has signed onto Jonathan Demme's ensemble piece, Dancing With Shiva. Today's Variety says the actress will be joining Bill Irwin (Lady in the Water, The Laramie Project), Anna Deavere Smith (The West Wing, Rent) and Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment, Forget Paris) in the comedy, which was written by Jenny Lumet. Filming begins next month in Connecticut.
Three more have signed on for the Timothy Linh Bui Christmas indie, Powder Blue, says The Hollywood Reporter. Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Ghost), Kris Kristofferson (Blade, The Wendell Baker Story), and Eddie Redmayne (The Good Shepherd) have joined the cast. Swayze will play a sleazy strip club owner, Redmayne will play a mortician who falls in love with a stripper who works there (Jessica Biel), and Kristofferson will play a corporate crime organization head. Could be quite interesting...
And finally, Warner Independent has plans to do a noir-style remake of the 1973 Bruce Lee martial arts classic, Enter the Dragon. According to Variety, the remake, which will be called Awaken the Dragon, will be written by producer Kurt Sutter (The Shield). Sutter will also be making his feature directing debut on the project.
