  • Though there’s hardly a burning (heh) desire for it, a Ghost Rider sequel possibly starring Nicolas Cage is in the works. [Variety]
  • William Shatner will direct The Captains, a documentary about his rise to fame as Captain Kirk on Star Trek. I’d write a joke, but really, it’s all there, folks. [Reuters]
  • Paramount is bending the release date of The Last Airbender, moving it to July 1. [Variety]
  • Russell Crowe will star as Robert McCall in an adaptation of the 1980s TV series The Equalizer. As long as he stays away from cliffs. [The Los Angeles Times]
  • Chace Crawford is set to star in indie Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding. That could pretty much be a caption to this picture, right? [THR]
  • Patrick Dempsey will star in the Lasse Hallstrom-directed Tom’s Dad, a coming-of-age film about a 1960s-era vaudevillian performer who “struggles to keep up with changing comedy styles.” [THR]
  • Style has increased its season two episode order of Jerseylicious from 10 to 20 episodes. [THR]
  • Some frakkin’ good news: Battlestar Galactica’s Michael Hogan has joined the cast of Catherine Hardwicke’s Red Riding Hood. [The Wrap]
  • Smallville writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar will pen Monster High, a musical based on the line of Mattel dolls. The movie will “feature the spawn of famous monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman undergoing the trials and tribulations of high school.” I would say that I didn’t know monsters attended high school, but then again, I was a 14-year-old girl once. [THR]
