Who would have thought that a world that is completely frozen could be so compelling. I want to know what lead to this moment in time, and I want to see where it goes from here. Well done to the creators.

Hilary Duff in new Bonnie and Clyde Movie

According to Variety, Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers (their faces are pasted over Dunaway and Beatty’s bodies above) above are set to star as Bonnie and Clyde in an all new adaptation by Tonya S. Holly and Cypress Moon Studios. The independent feature, titled The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, is based on newspaper articles about the gangsters and will not be a remake of the Beatty classic. Natalie Canerday and Rance Howard are co-starring in the crime drama.

I’ll be completely honest, I had no idea who Zegers was and I had to IMDB him. His four Air Bud credits don’t exactly scream that hes a good fit for Clyde. Duff also has not done anything to impress or convince me that she is right for the role. I think I’ll stick with my DVD copy of Bonnie and Clyde and skip this Story.

How about you, will you give this new version a chance?

The hysterical Donald Faison (Scrubs) stars in this action comedy as a down on his luck courier who drops off a package at the wrong address. Little does he know the package contains a lot of cocaine and it sets into motion a war between the dealers, intended recipients, and the thugs who accidentally got the drugs. Co-starring in the film is Lauren London, Mos Def, Wood Harris, Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick, and Debbie Allen. It’ll hit theaters on May 8th, 2009.

How in the world did I miss this casting tidbit? The one and only Jeff Goldblum is joining Law and Order: Criminal Intent. While I didn’t get into his 2007 television effort, Raines, I think Goldblum is an incredible talent and is a perfect fit for the Law and Order universe.

He’ll be portraying Zack Nichols, a cerebral and quirky detective who is paired with Detective Megan Wheeler (Julianne Nicholson). Sixteen all new episodes of Criminal Intent will be airing in 2009 on the USA Network. While waiting for new episodes you can head over to the official L&O website and play a game of concentration, or a variety of other games and trivia.

After a nine year wait, they are finally making a sequel to The Boondock Saints, THR reports. The first film, which was plagued with production problems caused by the inflating ego of the film’s writer/director Troy Duffy, turned into a cult hit on DVD.

The Boondock Saints focused on fraternal twins, Connor and Murphy MacManus (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus), who accidentally kill some of the toughest thugs in the Boston underworld and decide to turn into vigilante crusaders against crime. Along the way, they are tracked by FBI agent Paul Smecker, played by a scene stealing Willem Dafoe, and hunted down by vicious criminal known only as Pappa M (Billy Connolly). The film was stylistic with a perfect blend of action, crime, and dark comedy.

Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, and Billy Connolly are all returning for the sequel, which is currently shooting in Toronto. Joining the cast are Clifton Collins, Julie Benz, David Della Rocco, Bob Marley, Brian Mahoney and David Ferry.

Here is hoping that Troy Duffy cleaned up his act (as chronicled in the documentary Overnight), because I’d love to see more films from him.
