Talk About Dark Shadows ...

* Ice Cube’s shift from ranking good days as ones without “AKs” to family-friendly movie star makes me giggle. Shouldn’t he have been forced to change his name? You know, if Ice Cube was the guy who sang “F*** the Police,” then the guy who is now going to star as a cop (again) should be, I don’t know, Popsicle or Iced Chai or something. The chubby cheeked former rage-possessor is going to star in Rampart, about the ’90s LAPD scandal, for director David O Russell. If you come up with a more appropriate stage name for this soon-to-be-middle-aged-street-warrior-turned-teddy bear, tell him. He’ll find them hilarious. * Zack Snyder swears Superman will not “kneel before General Zod” in the upcoming reboot of the Man of Steel. This has resulted in wild guesstimations as to who may be the big baddie. I wouldn’t recommend Snyder get ideas from fan message boards though, as I think the studio would nix a creature with the top half of Katy Perry and the bottom half of a ninja. * Because crazy interpretations of religious texts cannot possibly cause trouble, Relativity Media is going to make a film of Michael Drosnin’s The Bible Code book series. Despite mostly just containing predictions said to be contained within the good book, as determined by an NSA code breaker, I can only hope they make it as exciting as watching The DaVinci Code. Why? Because Ambien is expensive. * Tim Burton and Johnny Depp are going to shoot Dark Shadows, an adaptation of the vampire soap opera, in April 2011. This feels like déjà vu but worse. Déjà doo-doo?
