Here’s what else is going on in nerd news around the web:
Fright Night: Colin Farrel (In Bruges) and Toni Collette (United States of Tara) have been cast in the remake of 1985 vampire flick Fright Night opposite Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Terminator Salvation). The Dreamworks film will supposedly stick to the plot of the first film, though no release date has been set.

I can’t believe no one told me this was a book: Paul is Undead: The British Zombie Invasion has been optioned for film. I repeat, we may see a zombie Beatles film. From what I’ve read, the plot goes something like this: John Lennon, zombie, zombifies Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They become rock-n-roll stars and manage to elude zombie hunter Mick Jagger. Oh, and Yoko Ono is a ninja lord. Sweet.
First Look at Kane & Lynch:
Rewrite: Kick-Ass scribe Jane Goldman is rewriting the script for X-Men: First Class. Good news? I loved Kick-Ass and Stardust, so yes?
X-MEN: FIRST CLASS, following the classic Marvel mythology, charts the epic beginning of the X-Men saga. Before Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr took the names Professor X and Magneto, they were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. Before they were archenemies, they were closest of friends, working together, with other Mutants (some familiar, some new), to stop the greatest threat the world has ever known.
