Harlan Ellison Would Have Us Burn Our Justin Timberlake Thrillers, and More...

September 16, 2011


- Two years after his arrest by Swiss police while trying to receive a lifetime achievement award, Roman Polanski will at last accept that award at the Zurich Film Festival. He would appreciate it if no one sends him to jail this time, please.

- Snoop Dogg is attached to star as Fillmore Slim in a biopic about the San Francisco-based blues musician and pimp. Finally, we'll get to see Snoop do some of that "pimpin'" he's talked so much about.

- Sci-fi author and frequent litigator Harlan Ellison claims the upcoming Justin Timberlake movie In Time is stolen from his ideas, and he's suing New Regency and director Andrew Niccol to destroy all copies of the film. Yet the makers of The Adjustment Bureau still haven't done anything about In Time stealing their idea for a dressed up leading man to constantly yank around a beautiful, visibly-distressed woman.

- Will Forte is the latest actor to join the cast of Neighborhood Watch. He joins a cast that includes Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill, Richard Ayoade, and Rosemarie DeWitt, yet somehow includes no museum exhibits come to life.

- Netflix's stupid new pricing model is expected to cause the service to lose a million subscribers in the third quarter. Hopefully that will get rid of the "short wait" I'm supposed to endure before they send me Rock N' Learn: Multiplication Rap.
