It’s been a decade since Roman Coppola directed a feature film (CQ, released in 2001) but he is preparing his second movie as director, A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III. The movie is at least partially inspired by the public meltdown of Charlie Sheen, and Sheen will play the title character. Aubrey Plaza, Jason Schwartzman and Katheryn Winnick have been cast over the past few weeks, and now Bill Murray, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Patricia Arquette are signing on, too. Read More »

If you’ve seen Ghostbusters — and I’m betting it’s a safe assumption that just about all of you have — you’ll probably recall the scene where Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) first learns of the Ghostbusters. She’s in her apartment putting away her groceries when she notices a television commercial for the paranormal extermination service, founded by parapsychologists Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Raymond Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis). Unfortunately, the scene cuts between Dana’s television and her reactions to the ad, so we don’t get to see exactly what she sees.
Happily, the Internet is here to help. After the jump, watch the uncut Ghostbusters commercial. It’s not a totally perfect match for the commercial playing in Dana’s apartment — there’s a second or two missing at the very start, and it doesn’t have the phone number splashed across the bottom — but it does have Egon acting delightfully extra-awkward right at the very end.

A week ago, we told you that the original Ghostbusters would be back in theaters soon for a limited release. Now we’ve got the details: Sony will put the movie on screens through the month of October, but only on Thursdays, starting October 13. So you might get a chance to see Ivan Reitman‘s original and still truly entertaining film on October 13, October 20 and October 27. Read More »

Ghostbusters 3 is not a film I’m particularly keen to see made, but at this point I really want it to happen just so people can stop asking Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray about whether or not it is going to happen. No one likes to talk about the project like Aykroyd likes to talk about it, and when the big question was put to him this week — is it happening? — he says yes, and suggests that it’ll happen with or without Bill Murray. And he’d like to see one of the Criminal Minds cast members suit up to battle the supernatural. Read More »
When David O. Russell stepped away from Sony’s tentpole Uncharted, it looked like The Silver Linings Playbook, based on Matthew Quick‘s novel, would be his next film. (The project had already been rumored as a possibility to be made before Uncharted.) Mark Wahlberg is set to star as “a delusional former high school history teacher who’s just been released into the custody of his mom. Believing that he’s only been away for a few months instead of the four years he just spent in a mental institution, the teacher sets about wooing back his ex-wife.”
Now, there is a report that Angelina Jolie is meeting with David O. Russell this week about the film, and so there is speculation that she’ll take the ex-wife role, once pegged as a possible gig for Anne Hathaway. This seems like a slight chance, as this isn’t the sort of material that Angelina Jolie has been doing in the past few years. She seems far more drawn to projects where she is really the driving force. But with the Oscar heat that came off The Fighter, David O. Russell is probably a much more attractive director now than he was before, and that lure can’t be totally discounted. [JustJared]

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In early May, Focus Features bought distribution rights to the new Wes Anderson film, Moonrise Kingdom, and issued an announcement of the full cast along with a plot description.
Or: almost the full cast. One actor who has been rumored for the film for some time is Harvey Keitel, but he was not among the announced cast list. Now he has been confirmed as being part of the movie. Along with that news, we’ve got the first images of some of the film’s sets, and of Edward Norton in costume (above) as a boy scout leader and Bill Murray being Bill Murray. That’s all after the break. Read More »
