The post Red State Kevin Smith is a workaholic. He’s making movie (Tusk) after movie (Yoga Hosers) and now he may be doing a follow up one of his most beloved.
Thursday, Smith tweeted his upcoming schedule for the next year and a half. Clerks III shoots in May, the Canadian hockey mini-series Hit Somebody shoots in the Fall and Winter, then he makes Moose Jaws in early 2016. The writer/director then dropped this line “But after that? I smell a rat…” Sounds like he might be going back to the mall for a sequel to his cult hit Mallrats.

Over the holidays, it’s easy to lose track of what’s going on on Twitter. Many of us are too busy sitting around with our families, eating big meals or maybe going to the movies. If you fall into that category, you probably missed Kevin Smith‘s tell-all tweet marathon revealing an interesting story of how Ben Affleck asked him to direct a non-Miramax movie, why Fletch Won never happened, and more. But don’t worry. We’ve got it all embedded for you after the jump. Read More »
Our last couple editions of TV Bits have been filled with mostly good news, but today’s is more of a downer, what with shows getting axed, a guy getting hurt, and, well, do you consider a Fred Durst sitcom bad news? At least AMC has some nice things to offer, including a new trailer for Hell on Wheels and some intriguing dramas in the works.
After the jump:
- Charlie’s Angels and Memphis Beat get cancelled
- Olivia Wilde leaves House
- Transporter star Chris Vance gets injured
- Fred Durst signs a deal with CBS
- Hell on Wheels gets a new trailer
Most days, I love my job. Other days, I’m forced to watch the trailer for Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. Yep, the squeaky-voiced CGI hellions are back for a third installment of their regrettably successful film franchise. Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, and Jesse McCartney return as the Chipmunks, along with Anna Faris, Christina Applegate, and Amy Poehler as the Chipettes and Jason Lee and David Cross as human beings. Watch the trailer after the jump.
TV Tidbits: Aaron Sorkin Returns to Form, Gretchen Mol Joins Scorsese’s Boardwalk Empire, Jason Lee to Star in TNT’s Delta Blues, Emmys Come Early

In TV news tonight: It looks like Aaron Sorkin is finally heading back to television after the failure of Studio 60, and you wouldn’t believe what he’s got planned according to TV Guide:
I’m going to be starting on a new TV series. It’s going to be what turns out to be the third in the trilogy of TV shows that take place behind the scenes of a TV show, but this will be a different kind of TV show. That’s all I can let out of the bag right now.
I’m actually not opposed to Sorkin revisiting a genre he knows so well. Let’s not forget that The West Wing, perhaps his best show, was also a behind the scenes look at the White House. Sorkin also said he hopes to reunite with some of his former series actors, and will definitely be working with longtime collaborator/director Thomas Schlamme.
