Will Vanilla Ice be ninja, ninja rapping in the new Ninja Turtles reboot? It’s possible. Or, at least, that’s what could be discerned from his (non) comments in a new interview. The rapper-turned-actor-turned home remodeler, whose real name is Robert Van Winkle, appears in next week’s That’s My Boy and was recently discussing his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fandom with MTV. He then refused to comment when asked about possible involvement with the new film, which will reportedly start shooting in Vancouver later this year. Watch the clip and more after the jump.

Lionsgate has just signed a new two-year first-look deal with Tyler Perry, and no wonder: the guy is a machine who turns out films that cost little and make a mint. The director’s latest for Lionsgate will be Good Deeds, which he’ll write, direct, produce and star in, as Glen Deeds, “an affluent and successful entrepreneur who’s about to get married when he becomes enamored with a down-on-her-luck single mom.” That basic plot setup is as well-worn as most of the character types in all Tyler Perry’s films, but that never seems to matter when it comes time to find an audience. Probably helps, in fact. A lot. The film will shoot later this month in Atlanta. [Variety]

In this day and age, it’s difficult for men to agree on much of anything, but we all feel that the Miami Hurricanes are the greatest college football team of all time. Yeah? A new feature-length doc entitled The U about the University of Miami’s equal parts legendary and notorious football program more than upholds this notion. As the latest entry in ESPN‘s 30 for 30 showcase, The U joins other sports documentaries made by reputable and well known filmmakers the likes of Peter Berg, Barry Levinson and forthcoming ones by Morgan Freeman and Jeff Tremaine of Jackass.
After the jump is a choice clip from The U and an interview with its producer, Alfred Spellman, who has made a name for himself alongside pal and U director, Billy Corben, with their Miami-based production company rakontur. Spellman discusses his doc, and the team itself within a historical and cultural context. He also updates on other projects including rakontur’s Cocaine Cowboys franchise, which is soon to be a major HBO series from Michael Bay.
