- Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have begun shooting on their first feature, Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, and Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte, and mf'ing William Atherton are all set to appear. Will your brain be able to handle Tim and Eric absurdity delivered by the 1980s' greatest screen prick? I fear mine won't.

- Barry Levinson is attached to direct O.K.C., a script that follows a young attorney on bomber Timothy McVeigh's defense team. My junior high Social Studies class will be taking the day off to watch this.

- Recent Oscar winner Trent Reznor will score Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. He'll also appear as a vampire in the film, retroactively justifying all the '90s teenagers that used a variation of "VampireNIN" as their AOL screenname.

- A new Bridget Jones diary (likely) begets a new Bridget Jones movie--now with even more squandered Oscar cred! (via)

- Sick of all the films about vampires, zombies, and aliens? Good, because DreamWorks Animation is really banking on everyone liking witches with Rumblewick.

- If you're eager to see Jar Jar's ears(?) flapping around in the third dimension, the 3-D conversion of The Phantom Menace will be in theaters February 10, 2012. Just in time to make for the loneliest Valentine's Day ever.
