I Am Link

--- Mafia Hit - Sad to hear that Eastern Promises 2 is undeniably and reliably dead, if only because we'll be missing more of the hot hot heat between Viggo and Vincent Cassel that there was  in the first one and how that'd no doubt have been even more central this time around without the limp noodle of Naomi Watts' character getting up in their sexy business.

--- The Tattler - I am not familiar with Lara Jean Chorostecki, the actress who's just joined Bryan Fuller's Hannibal, but seeing as how he's proven himself quite capable of picking capable folks every time up to bat so far, I think we're safe. She's playing the "tabloid reporter Freddie Lounds," a character's that's been male in every earlier iteration of the Hannibal Lecter saga. The character was played by Stephen Lang in Manhunter and by Phillip Seymour Hoffman in Red Dragon.

--- Pussy Power - Joss Whedon's current top nerd Fran Kranz (he played the stoner in Cabin in the Woods and the tech geek in Dollhouse) is going to star in Murder of a Cat, the directorial debut of Sam Raimi's wife Gillian Greene-Raimi. Geek overload! I love the film's story too - Kranz finds out, upon his cat's death, that the feline was leading a double life, living with another family half of the time, a discovery that embroils him in intrigue. How great is that?
--- Rolling Stone - I am so doing this: Steven Spielberg's prepped Raiders of the Lost Ark for IMAX screens, and it will show the first week of September. Yes yes yes. I'm already agog imaging the final scene in IMAX - melting Nazi face a dozen stories tall! Hells yeah! Hopefully it'll be a resounding success and we'll get Temple of Doom this way - I need Evil Shirtless Indiana good and big!

--- Music Master - I think I keep blocking out the fact that Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood did the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master just because I like how excited it makes me to remember. Slash has some new info on it, including a sample.
--- Up There - Over at TFE Amir's listing off a dozen movies he's looking forward to seeing at TIFF, and I have no idea how he managed to get the number down to a dozen - there are literally two or three times that I'd want to see. That festival gets crazier every year..
