Director Ridley Scott helmed Rusell Crowe in 3 films! Scott gave Crowe a Best Actor Oscar for "Gladiator" in 2000, he tried to cast the actor in a softer light, sort of, in 2006's "A Good Year," and the duo mesmerized, alongside Denzel Washington in last year's "American Gangster."
Now, Scott is going to cast Crowe as the Sheriff of Nottingham, a brave lawman who's entangled in a love triangle between Maid Marion (Sienna Miller) and Robin Hood.
Universal Pictures has scheduled "Nottingham" for a Nov. 6, 2009, release.

It’s been 6 years since Mike Myers came up with an original character. “Austin Powers in Goldmember” opened in 2002, and since then, the comedian navigated between voicing the super-popular “Shrek” films and playing The Cat in the awful adaptation of “The Cat in the Hat.”
If we’re going to believe the production notes of Myers’ new film, “The Love Guru,” it’s supposed to be a deeply personal project for the actor. After his father died, Myers began a serious quest that led him to gurus and ashrams, and then back to comedy again.

UPDATE: THE AP REPORTED YESTERDAY, GEORGE LUCAS IS DIRECTING, BUT ACCORDING TO NEW REPORTS, HE IS NOT HELMING THE FILM ABOUT TUSKEGEE AIRMEN. READ THIS ARTICLE.
I've always known Mister George Lucas has a heart of a gifted storyteller. It's just that recently, his gift has been overshadowed by his super-popular subjects such as "Star Wars"s and "Indiana Jones."
So when I heard that Lucas is going to do a historical film about the brave Tuskegee Airmen, I was elated!
The film has a working title of "Red Tails."
