I caught the trailer for “Everyone Wants to Be Italian” on YouTube completely randomly while jumping from video to video, and I am happy I did. The film looks like a charming and quirky (Italian) romantic comedy. The indie was written and directed by Jason Todd Ipson and will be opening up in limited release on September 5th. The film stars Jay Jablonski, Cerina Vincent, John Kapelos, John Enos III, Dan Cortese, and Penny Marshall.

The supporting cast in that trailer reminds me of my family. “What are you too good to be Italian?”

Sega has released their trailer for “MadWorld”, a noir comic book inspired video game for the Wii. This thing looks like a mean mix of Sin City, GTA and Streets of Rage. Although (and this could just be me) the action and characters seemed to get lost in the background making it very hard to tell what was going on. After hours of playing this, I think my eyes would explode.

Sean Connery might have retired from acting, but that doesn’t mean that he is gone for good. Yesterday, Connery returned to his home town of Edinburgh, Scotland, to celebrate the launch of his autobirgraphy, “Being a Scot”.

According to the Associated Press, the book “looks at Connery’s early life as a milkman in Edinburgh’s Fountainbridge neighborhood, then delves into a wide-ranging look at Scottis culture including the work of poet Robert Burns, novelist Sir Walter Scott and Mary, Queen of Scots.”

Collider did a great interview with Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, the two new executive producers on “Smallville”. They talk about the fresh new direction of the show, the departures of Kristen Kreuk (Lana Lang) and Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor), returning guests (Martian Manhunter, Impulse, Green Arrow, Aquaman, among others) and what new faces we’ll be seeing (Zatanna? Maybe). You can read the interview here.

After “Firefly” was wrongfully canceled, and “Driver” never made it to the finish line, b-action hero Nathan Fillion is going to attempt to be in another television series.

Variety reports that ABC Studios has picked up Fillion’s pilot, “Castle”, to go to series for midseason.

The show “stars Fillion as a novelist who helps the NYPD solve homicide cases. Ruben Santiago-Hudson, Susan Sullivan and Stana Katic also star in the comedic procedural from ABC Studios. Andrew Marlowe wrote the pilot and exec produces with Armyan Bernstein, Rob Bowman and Laurie Zaks.”

“Castle” joins four other shows that ABC put an order out for, including; “The Unusuals” starring Amber Tamblyn, and Adam Goldberg, “Cupid” from Rob Thomas and starring Bobby Cannavale, “Single With Parents” starring Alyssa Milano, Annie Potts, and Beau Bridges, and “Better Off Ted” with Jay Harrington and Portia de Rossi.

Today is shaping up to be one great day. First the rumor that Linda Hamilton might be returning to the Terminator franchise, and now we get a report that “Maniac Cop 4” is in the works! The Maniac Cop series (the first starred the icon known as Bruce Campbell… who also cameos in the second one) is one of those crazy cult horror series that started in the late 80s at the height of the slasher genre and released two sequels in the early 90s before disappearing (for what I thought would be forever). “Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence” ended with a wink at the audience and the door wide open for another go around.

And now, 15 years later, we might finally get that next go around. Fangoria is reporting that William Lustig, the director of all three of the Maniac Cop films, announced at a screening of the original film this past week that he had gotten the sequel rights back for Maniac Cop. He went on to say that he is currently preparing “Maniac Cop 4” along with Larry Cohen, the franchise’s sole screenwriter.

Hopefully Lustig and Cohen get the support and freedom that they need to make this picture. I for one would love to see it on the big screen, but would definitely settle for a DVD if the film were to go that route instead.

Pause.com just brought a smile to my face by the sheer possibility that Linda Hamilton might have signed on to appear in all three films of McG’s Terminator trilogy.

The site claims that a studio source confirmed Hamilton’s involvement, but one of Hamilton’s reps said that they hadn’t heard about this, but that Linda would be interested in it. You can read the original report here.

With James Cameron and Arnold both giving their blessing to the film (and rumors that Arnold might even be making a voice cameo in the film), I can picture this rumor planning out to be true. Hamilton decided to not return in Terminator 3 because she did not like the script and the fact that Cameron wasn’t happy about the picture. With Bale citing the script as the main reason that he signed on to a trilogy, we have to believe that it’s good. Plus, it has been years since Hamilton had a juicy role, and there is no better part bring her back into the spotlight than the one that made her famous in the first place.

Man, I hope this rumor pans out. And I still hope that they change the name from Terminator Salvation.
