New Line Releases Hairspray Movie Poster

hairsprayposterbig.jpgThe new poster for Adam Shankman’s remake of Hairspray is just what you would expect. It’s colorful, and feels very broadway-ish. But what’s with this new “Who’s who behind the do?” tagline? New Line better come up with something better than that. But since they asked, the cast includes John Travolta, Michelle Pfeiffer, Nicole Blonsky, Queen Latifah, Amanda Bynes, Christopher Walken, Allison Janney, Zac Efron, and James Marsden. I heard very good things about the footage that was shown at ShoWest, so be sure to add this one to your calendar.

Inglorious Bastards up NEXT for Quentin Tarantino

Quentin TarantinoInglorious Bastards will be Quentin Tarantino’s next film, according to the Grindhouse director.

“That will probably be the very next thing I do,” Quentin told /Film at the Grindhouse junket. “Robert will probably be doing Sin City 2 coming up fairly shortly.  I am going to kind of go on the road with this, around the earth here.  I haven’t really done it in a big way in a long time where you spend six months doing it.  But I also like writing on the road, it’s a really good time to do that so I will probably finish up ‘Inglorious Bastards’ while I am promoting ‘Grindhouse’.

Bastards is the project Tarantino worked on in the six years in between the releases of Jackie Brown and Kill Bill. Instead of a conventional 100 to 200 page script, he wrote a 600 page work in three feature-length parts. It has been rumored that the resulting film will be released in two or three parts.

Set in World War II, the story revolves around a group of soldiers on their way to be executed, when they get the chance of a reprieve. Tarantino has described them as “not your normal hero types that are thrown into a big deal in World War II.”

Michael Madsen will star as Babe Buchinsky. Other names rumored to be involved in the project include: Tim Roth, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Paul Walker, Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, Johnny Depp, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, Fred Williamson, John Jarratt, Mickey Rourke and Christopher Walken.
