There’s a great deal of small TV news to round up, so let’s get to it. First off comes the news that Dexter has been given a sixth season renewal. The last time the show was up for renewal was in 2008, when Showtime committed to a fourth and fifth season. E! suggested that a one-season order now is due to cast contract renegotiations that will take place before a seventh season. I never would have expected the show to run quite this long, but the numbers are improving, with this Sunday’s episode grabbing the show’s best ratings ever. So: onward to season six!
After the break, news on the surprise fate of the writing staff of The Walking Dead, the prequel movie for Burn Notice, and more casting for J.J. Abrams’ Alcatraz. Read More »

Beloved B-movie actor/God Bruce Campbell is making a sequel to My Name is Bruce. To many that decision may seem odd, considering that not even diehard fans of ‘The Chin’ were terribly blown away by the first film, and Campbell has been scrupulous enough in his project undertakings that he passed on a sequel to Bubba Ho-tep, but after reading his description of the sequel, entitled Bruce Vs. Frankenstein, I can see why he’s insistent on making the film. Read More »

The world’s most A-grade B-actor, Bruce Campbell, was stopped at the red carpet premiere of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and pressed for details on the upcoming Spider-Man 4. Seeing as he’s had a role in each of the three Sam Raimi Spidey pictures so far it wasn’t too much of a stretch to assume he’d be on the call sheet for the next go around too. Not only did he confirm that, he also claimed a January start date for the project. But what could he reveal about his appearance in the film?

It’s like one of those dreams where everyone is laughing crazily at a neverending dinner table. An awesome ensemble cast has filled out for 2010’s Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, a 3D animated film based on the bestselling children’s book by Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett:
Anna Faris (yes, in a gentler type of mouthy-role) and Bill Hader will voice the lead characters. Tracy Morgan, Andy Samberg, James Caan, Mr. T and Bruce Campbell are also on board. Faris will voice a ” weathergirl covering the phenomenon who hides her intelligence behind a perky exterior.” Hader will voice “Flint Lockwood, a young inventor who dreams of creating something that will improve everyone’s life.”
First published in 1982, the book is set in Chewandswallow, a town where the weather serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner on the daily. “The wind brings hamburgers” et al. One day, the weather stops offering choice sustenance and the townspeople freak. The film will reportedly tell the origins of the phenomenon, aka kids’ earliest conception of the munchies. Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Clone High) will write and direct for Sony Pictures Animation.
