Would they happen to be disappointed should you did not win?Cindy: [Laughs] I believe so! I was all watching together and my father stated, "Yeah, Used to do [require that you win]." Which was the very first factor [my mother] stated too. ... Every Monday, I'd have an e-mail from my parents or my buddy saying, "Why have you do that wrong?" And I am much like, "Are you able to you need to be excited that we are still on the program?InchErnie: They expect a lot it's really demanding on Cindy.

The proceeds visits sponsoring children's education in developing marketplaces. Something which People in america ignore is free of charge education. I designed a comment in Malawi - "Why aren't each one of these kids in class?Inch - and that we returned and investigated and recognized that in Malawi, they'd just made school public, and there is this complete increase of scholars likely to school the schools could not handle. Therefore the dropout rate was really greater than the amount of students likely to school.Ernie: Our goal around the Race ended up being to begin a business together and this will be our way you want to hand back. ... We'd certainly persuade folks arrive at our website,, where we are likely to set up everything concerning the organization.How's the marriage planning going?Cindy: We are marriage on March 10 in Chicago.Are you currently a bridezilla?Ernie: [Laughs] Do you consider she'd be considered a bridezilla?You are just a little Type A, so yeah.Cindy: [Laughs] Yeah, I believe many people expect me to become a bridezilla.

New Regency Acquires Aron Eli Coleite Pitch Hellbent

EXCLUSIVE: New Regency closed a mid-six figure deal for Hellbent, a thriller pitch that will be written by Aron Eli Coleite. Erwin Stoff and Michael Green will produce and New Regency CEO Brad Weston took it off the table as two other bids mobilized. It’s described as a prison escape movie with supernatural elements. Hellbent is the second deal in a month for Coleite, whose science fiction/drama spec script The End was recently bought by Warner Bros. That film focuses on three completely different storylines that are interconnected by the fact that the players in each one are trying to reconcile the fact that the world is going to end. There is a veteran broadcaster in London, a 16-year old girl and her boyfriend in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and a devoted family man in Shanghai. They each try to make peace with their lives before an interstellar event ends the world in just six hours. Coleite works with Green on the ABC series The River, and they previously worked together on Heroes. “We were eager to get in business with the new configuration of New Regency, and Brad really got the pitch and has had success with genre movies,” Stoff said. “That made it the right place for the pitch.” The scribe’s repped by CAA, Green by WME and 3 Arts.

At Tuesday's opening of David Ives' "Venus in Fur," Manhattan Theater Club's Lynne Meadow trumpeted the fact that the play is the first by the prolific scribe to open on Broadway.But the comedy starring Nina Arianda and Hugh Dancy is still, like a lot of others by Ives, an adaptation -- in this case of a 19th century erotic novel that led to the coining of the term "sado-masochism."Indeed, Ives has become the go-to guy for comic adaptations lately with a string of updates of Moliere, Corneille, Regnard and others."The story is always the hardest thing," he said at BB Kings. "When you adapt, someone just hands you a great story. They've done three-quarters of the work for you. All you have to do is run with it."

Armie Hammer on Clint Eastwood's Directing Style: 'I Thought We Were Just Rehearsing That'

"There would be takes that we did where I was under the impression we were shooting a rehearsal," admits 'J. Edgar' co-star Armie Hammer about Clint Eastwood's famously brisk directorial style, a statement that flies in the face -- just a tad -- of what was said at the 'J. Edgar' press conference in Los Angeles last week. "I've got this reputation of shooting one take, and it's a wonderful reputation to have, but it's hard to live up to," said Eastwood. "If you did, it'd be kind of shoddy, I think." Then again, Eastwood wasn't in the room when Moviefone spoke to Armie Hammer. In 'J. Edgar,' Hammer plays Clyde Tolson, J. Edgar Hoover's erstwhile second-in-command who, at least according to the film, also shared a romantic relationship with Hoover until the day he died. Moviefone spoke to Hammer about Eastwood's one-take reputation -- especially when compared to David Fincher, who Hammer just worked with on 'The Social Network' -- the fact that the real-life Hoover thought Hammer's great-grandfather was a spy, his preparation for 'The Lone Ranger,' why there are two Snow White movies in the works, and if people think that he has a real-life twin brother. I always find it funny the words that auto fill-in when I do research on someone on Google. Yeah, yeah... The second one that fills in for you is "shirtless." Oh, God. Jeeze. It could be worse? I mean, I wouldn't mind that, I don't think? Well, I mean, dude, you're better off. Trust me. I do find it fascinating that you went from a David Fincher movie to a Clint Eastwood movie, considering their directorial styles. As polar opposite as you can get. Absolutely. Is there any exaggeration there? Is Eastwood really like, "cut, print, let's move on"? There would be takes that we did where I was under the impression we were shooting a rehearsal. Or that the cameras weren't even on ... and that's what we used. Then, the flip side of that coin, getting to take 60 with Fincher and hearing him go, "No, I don't like it. Delete them all. OK, start over -- take one." Really? There were times that you really didn't think the cameras were on? Oh, yeah, definitely. At one point he was like, "OK, cut, print." And I was like, "Whoa, whoa, Clint, I had my sides in my hands, I thought we were just rehearsing that." Were there any scenes you wanted to do again and Clint wouldn't let you? Um... initially, when we first started, there were times I was like, "Please, can we do one more. I think I can do it better. Please, please, please." But, then, eventually, I fell into it -- just trusting Clint as much as everybody else trusted Clint. And I think it really paid off in spades. And I'm guessing after 'The Social Network' you never thought that you would ever ask, "Please, please, can we do one more?" [Laughs] But, you know what's funny? I got used to it. The sort of way that Fincher works -- the grueling amount of takes. And because it was my first experience doing a big movie, that was what I was sort of acclimated to. So when we started doing ['J. Edgar'], I was like, "I don't think we're working hard enough." Like, "It doesn't feel like we're drained. How come I'm going home when the sun's still up? What's going on?" See, that's interesting. So, coming from the Fincher mindset, did you just assume you would get at least a couple takes to work some stuff out with your character and have it figured out by take two or three? We didn't have that opportunity. Right. But was it really that big of a shock? Did you ever say, "Wait, we're really not doing that again?" Yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh, definitely. I mean, it was only a shock for the first day. Because, like I said, you get used to it and then, all of a sudden, you start to really appreciate it. It just becomes effortless filmmaking. You know, he's been doing it for so long, he's been able to strip all of the noise and extraneous riff-raff and crap out of the filmmaking process. What you have is a boiled down, simplified, elemental version of filmmaking. And it's amazing to be a part of it. What's your favorite Clint Eastwood movie? My favorite Eastwood movie? Oof. 'The Outlaw Josie Wales'... Do you mean that he's directed or stared in? Either or, or both. The floor is yours. It would probably be -- I mean, 'Unforgiven' is just epic. And 'Josie Wales,' and, of course, 'Million Dollar Baby' is probably my most favorite recent one he's done. But I also love 'Gran Torino.' I don't know. Probably 'Unforgiven.' What did you know about Hoover before signing on for this film? I didn't know much. I knew sort of the stories that got passed around the family -- I mean, he really hated Armand [Hammer]. He didn't trust him. He thought he was a spy. So I grew up hearing all of that. So when I finally read the script it was more instead of, "Wow, this is crazy," it was more of, "My God, it's true!" For your character, Clyde Tolson, researching seems like a much more difficult task. There doesn't seem to be a lot out there. It was the easiest thing in the world for me because I took the lazy way out and hired a professional researcher. I didn't know you could do that. It's the same lady that I work with on every one of my projects. I told her, "Find me everything you can," and she did. I probably had over 6000 pages of research on Clyde Tolson, at least. Including every excerpt from a book that mentioned him even once. Everything. Every picture of him ever taken, including, but not limited to, pictures of him sleeping that J. Edgar took. I know you're probably being asked a lot about the makeup. But that looks like a lot of makeup. Well, I mean, it's not a little makeup, I'll tell you that. Was that difficult? Um... yes and no. It's difficult, but it helps, at the same time. It's difficult because you have a quarter inch of latex glued to your face with professional strength adhesive for 12, 13, 14 hours out of the day. And, effectively, you're putting on a mask, which will limit the amount of emoting that you can do with your face. So, to get that all across, you have to sit in the mirror and go, "OK, if I smile, I have to actually try and close my eyes and pull my cheeks back and I have to do all of this stuff," that you don't think about when you're not wearing a huge mask on your face. Has a stranger ever asked you where your twin brother is? Yes. That has happened to me. And it's, like, the biggest compliment that I can get. I mean, I'd rather someone come up and say that than anything else. Because then it's like, "Ah, we tricked you! We got ya!" Do you ever here from those guys? The actual Winklevoss twins? No. No, I never really heard from them. I met them once or twice through the course of making the movie. I mean, they're so drastically different than who I am and what I want to be that it's like, I almost just would rather hang out with my normal friends. So, 'The Lone Ranger' is on again? Yeah, we're on, dude. We're riding off into the sunset. That's an interesting role. How do you prepare to play The Lone Ranger? Well, my researcher is prepping again. She's looking up Texas Ranger lore and Texas history and locations that are in the movie that I want to know about. What the general population would know in the day -- how informed were they? How did they get their news? What sort of education would this guy have? All of those things. So, really, a lot of stuff. I'm excited about getting into it. You might want to stay away from the 1981 movie 'The Legend of the Lone Ranger.' [Laughs] Yeah, right! That was the real lame one. Yeah, yeah. Why are there two Snow White movies coming out next year? There are two Snow White movies coming out for the same reason that you remember back in the day there was 'Armageddon' and then 'Deep Impact.' You know, 'Andromeda Strain' and then 'Outbreak.' Like, all of those things. It's common because basically studios have no imagination in making the decisions. They go, "Oh, they just had success with that movie, so we'll do a movie like that." The pictures look nice. Those pictures aren't even recut. Like, those are just pictures that some guy took on stage. Wait until you see. I've seen little things that after Tarsem [Singh] has done his Tarsem magic on it, those pictures look drastically different. Don't think that's what it's going to look like. It's going to look so much cooler. You can contact Mike Ryan directly on Twitter. Follow Moviefone on Twitter Like Moviefone on Facebook [Photo: Warner Bros.] 'J.

Drifters (Gli sfiorati)

A Fandango production in collaboration with Rai Cinema. (International sales: Fandango Portobello, London.) Produced by Domenico Procacci. Directed by Matteo Rovere. Screenplay, Laura Paolucci, Francesco Piccolo, Rovere, based on the novel by Sandro Veronesi.With: Andrea Bosca, Miriam Giovanelli, Claudio Santamaria, Michele Riondino, Asia Argento, Massimo Popolizio, Aitana Sanchez-Gijon.The trials and tribulations of attractive young Italians provide the photogenic subject for contempo comedy-drama "Drifters." Based on Sandro Veronesi's Rome-set novel, helmer Matteo Rovere's sophomore effort benefits from its media-friendly depiction of a new social group, the titular gli sfiorati -- just as long as no one remembers the book was actually published in 1990. Of more questionable value is the pic's incest storyline, likely to be downplayed in Italo distributor Fandango's marketing come the film's spring release. Overseas, the sibling-lust angle might assist material that's otherwise in danger of being too slight for successful export to foreign arthouses. Handsome, 30-ish Mete (Andrea Bosca) has an apartment in Rome's picturesque historical center, a stimulating (if unlikely) job as a handwriting analyst and an enviable, appropriately hedonistic social life. Less felicitously, his 17-year-old half-sister, Belinda (Miriam Giovanelli), to whom he's inconveniently attracted, has just moved into his living room. As Mete's father, Sergio (Massimo Popolizio), a soccer star-turned-sports pundit, belatedly prepares to marry Belinda's mother, Virna (Spanish-Italian actress Aitana Sanchez-Gijon), the two half-siblings negotiate their problematic intimacy boundaries. Written by Rovere, Laura Paolucci and Francesco Piccolo, the screenplay successfully juggles several elements, notably a funny subplot involving nutty man-eater Beatrice (Asia Argento, in a change-of-pace role that will earn her plenty more comedic castings). Meanwhile, a committed perf from Michele Riondino as Mete's real-estate-agent buddy Damiano can't disguise the stock-comedy aspect of this generic lothario character. In this follow-up to his 2008 teen drama "Un gioco da ragazze," Rovere succeeds in presenting sibling sex in a lighthearted context that never teeters into heavy issue-movie terrain; a framing device, which places the bulk of the action in the recent past, likewise helps auds accept what they might otherwise resist. However, the film's exploration of the "drifters," described by Mete's fellow graphologist and pal Bruno (Claudio Santamaria) as "a new unforeseen category," is less assured. This liquid, glancing form of existence, more an attitude than a specific demographic, probably won't be challenging the likes of Generations X and Y and for sociological supremacy. Tech credits are pro. Andrea Farri's score, confidently fusing orchestral and electronic elements, reps a major plus, and the sound mix is afforded some showily effective moments in one nightclub scene. Picture-postcard Rome locations do no harm, with Sergio and Virna's wedding in particular affording a pleasant whiz around the city in a vintage convertible, Colosseum and all.Camera (color, widescreen), Vladan Radovic; editor, Giogio Franchini; music, Andrea Farri; production designer, Alessandro Vannucci; set decorator, Cristina Del Zotto; costume designer, Monica Celeste; sound (Dolby Digital), Maricetta Lombardo; supervising sound editor, Gianluca Carbonelli; re-recording mixer, Marco Cappolecchia; visual effects supervisor, Rodolfo Migliari; line producer, Ivan Fiorini; assistant director, Matteo Albano; casting, Francesca Borromeo.

Swedish muscle

Mikael MarcimainDirector Swedish TV and commercials director Marcimain is making his long-awaited feature debut with "Call Girl," a political thriller set in the late 1970s, starring Pernilla August, set for release in 2012. He made his name with the acclaimed miniseries "The Laser Man" and "How Soon Is Now?," a drama of Swedish youth in revolt during the turbulent era of 1965-76. He's known for his collaboration with Dutch cinemato-grapher Hoyte van Hoytema, who also worked with Tomas Alfredson on "Let the Right One In" and "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," and with David O. Russell on "The Fighter."Karzan KaderWriter-directorKadar's family came to Sweden from Kurdistan when he was 8, to escape the 1990 Iraq War. "Bekas," his graduation short from the Stockholm film school, took a silver medal at the Student Academy Awards this year, and won a prize at the Palm Springs Shorts Fest. Kader is now expanding the story into feature for Sonet Film. "Bekas" is about two brothers living on the street in Kurdistan, who dream up a daring plan to get to America, which they think is just across the border. Shooting in spring was interrupted by the Arab uprisings, but the cameras are now rolling again.Bill SkarsgardActor The latest in the acting dynasty -- fourth son of Stellan, brother of Alexander and Gustaf -- 21-year-old Bill Skarsgard is on his way to becoming a major Swedish star. Appearing alongside his father in crusader epic "Arn: The Kingdom at Road's End" convinced him that he wanted to follow in the family business, but it was his title role in "Simple Simon," Sweden's 2010 submission for the foreign-language film Oscar, which made his own name. His latest role is the lead in the World War II epic "Simon and the Oaks," based on a classic Swedish bestseller about a boy who befriends a Jewish refugee.Lisa AschanWriter-director When the Swedish Film Institute launched its Rookie program in 2009 to fund low-budget films by debut directors, the applicants were overwhelmingly male. So it decided that only women would be considered for the fifth and final Rookie project. That led to the selection of Aschan's "She Monkeys," about three teenage girls who perform horseback gymnastics. Pic premiered to acclaim at Berlin this year and won narrative feature at Tribeca. Despite its arthouse style, Aschan, who trained at the Danish Film School, describes "She Monkeys" as a Western, and is next planning a horror project.Babak NajafiWriter-directorBorn in Iran, Najafi moved to Sweden as a boy in the mid-1980s. He trained as a documentary director, and won the Stockholm festival's 1 km film scholarship in 1999 for his debut short "Rasten." After several shorts, he made his feature debut in 2010 with the drama "Sebbe," about a single mother and her son living on a tough working-class estate. Pic won the debut prize at Berlin, then best film at Sweden's Guldbagge awards. In a sharp change to a more commercial direction, he's now finishing "Easy Money 2," the sequel to the 2010 hit crime thriller.Malin BuskaActress With just a couple of previous shorts on her film resume, 27-year-old stage actress Buska was a revelation in Bjorn Runge's slice of Swedish miserabilism "Happy End." Critics raved about her performance as a cleaner who is beaten by her boyfriend, but whose life changes when a troubled young artist asks to paint her. Although the film went largely unseen by the paying public, the role has put her firmly on the industry's radar as a star in the making.Patrik AnderssonProducer Andersson began his career in various marketing and distribution roles at Nordisk, Sandrew Metronome, the Swedish Film Institute and the Stockholm Intl Film Festival. He was headhunted by St. Paul Film to move across into production as head of development, where he is building up the slate. He's also producing writer-director Lisa Langseth's sophomore drama "Hotel," following her Guldbagge script win for her debut "Pure."Gabriela PichlerWriter-director After film school in Gothenburg, Gabriela Pichler won for short at the 2009 Guldbagge awards for her graduation film "Scratches," which also took fest prizes at Munich, Karlovy Vary and Uppsala. Her feature debut, "Eat Sleep Die," is now in post-production. Written and directed by Pichler for Anagram Prods., it's the story of a young woman's fight to stay in her home village after the closure of the local factory makes everyone redundant. Pichler brings a strong storytelling instinct to the arty, political style associated with Gothenburg filmmakers.Liv MjonesActress After numerous stage and TV roles, including the SVT series "Bibliotekstjuven," 32-year-old actress Mjones made her feature breakthrough this year with the lead in lesbian romance "With Every Heartbeat" (aka "Kyss mig") directed by Alexandra-Therese Keining. She followed that with "Stockholm East," released in October, and she'll be discovered by a more mainstream audience next year in spy thriller "In the Nation's Interest," the latest installment in the Carl Hamilton franchise, Sweden's answer to James Bond.Erika Wasserman & Jesper KurlandskyProducers "Avalon," the second feature produced by Wasserman and Kurlandsky under their Fasad shingle, won the international critics discovery award at Toronto for its debut director Axel Petersen. Kurlandsky learned the ropes as part of Lukas Moodysson's team on "Mammoth," "Container," "Lilya-4-ever" and "A Hole in My Heart," with a variety of credits including cinematographer, casting director and art director.

What to Expect From Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol's Wild IMAX Action Sequences

This December 16, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol premieres in IMAX five days in advance of its general release. Why exactly? Probably to encourage fans of the Tom Cruise franchise to see the picture in the large format director Brad Bird intended when he shot thirty minutes-worth of the fourth Ethan Hunt film in IMAX. To convince journalists that the large format is indeed worth higher ticket prices, an advance release date and a little early buzz, Paramount screened about 20 minutes worth of wild action sequences at the Rave 18 theater in Los Angeles last week. Ahead, the stomach-flipping details (and very mild spoilers). Producer Bryan Burk (Lost, Star Trek) introduced the footage by explaining that “there’s nothing Tom loves more than making these movies. […] He gives 110 percent which is daunting because I really, on my best day, give 5 percent. He loves doing stunts and being a part of it. Literally, every single shot you see is Tom Cruise. There are no stuntmen involved. He did have a stuntman who would go out and test wires and things. [The stuntman] is literally fearless — except for one fear which happens to be heights. Fortunately for the rest of us, Tom didn’t have that.” With that disclaimer, Burk threw to the first sequence which begins in a jeep as Tom Cruise’s IMF agent Ethan Hunt and his team (comprised of Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton and, supplying the comic relief, Simon Pegg) speed towards Dubai. “They are literally on ghost protocol which means the entire agency is shut down — it does not exist,” explained Burk beforehand. The foursome heads to the highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa to “to stop a meeting between two people who should not be meeting.” Once set up inside — with Patton’s character surveying the appropriate floor in disguise — Renner, Cruise and Pegg’s characters figure out how they will infiltrate an impenetrable suite high above them. The only option they have, it seems, is for Hunt to scale the building with high tech “sticky gloves” that can support his weight and adhere himself to the building. The only problem? They, being such new technology, occasionally malfunction — when the film’s hero is nearly a half mile above ground. The entire sequence is shot in dizzying IMAX with sweeping establishing shots showing a picturesque city — and then the insanely high building that Cruise climbs. One particularly stomach-churning shot pans up the building before flipping over the tower — looking down — and keeps going. Another impressive shot runs down the side of the building, giving viewers the sense that they are riding a roller coaster. Without giving too much away, the tension-filled sequence — during which Ethan Hawke’s life is at risk multiple times — ends with the perfect comedic button from Simon Pegg. The levity was, as Burk explained, something that was not part of the Mission Impossible franchise beforehand but something that director Bird felt passionate about infusing into the fourth installment. The second sequence shown was a high-pace chase scene that occurs during a sandstorm. Audience members cannot see anything except sand granules whipping at them and Tom Cruise, who is forced to chase a baddie using a GPS tracker device only since he cannot see more than six inches in front of him. Oh, and did I mention that part of this chase occurs in vehicles racing at high speeds? The scene ends as the sand storm does — the haze and sand fall away and Cruise is left staring at his target as he speeds away. So yes, if you are going to make a trip to the local IMAX theater this holiday season, maybe consider Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Tom Cruise only risked his life to give you these death-defying movie thrills. Watch the new trailer, courtesy of Yahoo:

For "The Run," EA switched to support of Moves, the motion capture house whose credits include "Tron: Legacy," "Super 8" and blockbuster games "Cod: Black Procedures" and "Gears of War 3."The business produced a brand new motion-capture technology referred to as "electrooculagraphy," initially created for that healthcare industry, that tracks the electronic impulses concerning the eyes to supply digital figures really a soul by re-creating realistic facial and eye actions.For example, 90 sensors were situated around the actors' faces, where 60 are often used."Our innovative, all-new performance capture technology pushes the restrictions of character animation, enabling us to perfectly capture Christina and Sean's likeness resulting in an engaging narrative experience coupled with top-notch racing," DeLong mentioned. It's the first time the technology was used for just about any videogame, but because House of Moves also works well with film productions, it's only determined by time just before the tech is needed for just about any tentpole. Compared to many Tv shows, which take eight 16-hour days to film, the story mode of "The Run" needed four days for Faris and Hendricks to shoot. The sequences participate in like small-movies between your racing action."You must do three takes and you're simply to another factor, Faris told Variety.

"You're in the room ornamented by cameras those. People say, 'There's a wall the following or possibly an automobile over there' and you're simply just searching within an apple box. It's all about utilizing your imagination." Not used to undertaking stunts on sets like "Never Lower Again" and "Freerunner," Faris found developing a videogame much like physical. "Wherever the truth is the level of smoothness jumping and running across building gaps, that was me accumulating some boxes stacked five to six foot high," mentioned Faris, who had no time before done a videogame. "There's plenty of running, jumping, falling, twisting, turning, fighting -- all must be shot in some manner. I used to be worn-in the conclusion of each and every day."Faris already is attempting to return for an additional "Requirement of Speed" follow-up and continue racing, should EA invite him back."As soon as I obtained the phone call, I mentioned, 'Yes," Faris mentioned.

Watercooler: Who Hartz Megan Mullally on Happy Endings? We Do!

Megan Mullally Wouldn't the world be so much better if we all sang our arguments? God knows, TV would be better if we had more Megan Mullally on it.Last night, the scene stealer we worshipped as Anastasia Beaverhausen, (or, ya know, Will & Grace's Karen Walker) put a song in our hearts with her Happy Endings guest spot as Dana Hartz, Penny's cabaret-circuit mother. A pitch-perfect blend of chronic optimism, theatricality and borderline craziness, Mullally scenes with the underrated Casey Wilson were a scream from start to BIG finish, and Dana's "I'm singin' at a boat show" breakdown - complete with attacks on the whole gang - was yet another reminder that there's no such thing as too much Mullally. Here's hoping that the folks at Happy, or even Parks and Recreation, where she is equally awesome as Tammy Two, find more for the multiple Emmy winner to do this season.So, did Mullally's appearance have you saying "yeah, buoy"?Subscribe to TV Guide Magazine now!

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Amid spiraling rumors of trouble between Ashton Kutcher and wife Demi Moore and allegations of infidelity against the new Two and a Half Men star Ashton has spoken out regarding the latest scandal sort of. Early Thursday morning, the 33-year-old actor Tweeted a link to Public Enemys 1988 hit, Dont Believe the Hype, on his Spotify account. Ashton spoke out more directly later Thursday, Tweeting, When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME. As for Demi, the usually outspoken star has remained silent since photos surfaced of her husband partying at FLUXX in San Diego, Calif., on Friday (the day before her and Ashtons six-year wedding anniversary). However, Demi, 48, Tweeted a seemingly cryptic message on Friday, writing, When we are offended at any mans fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger. Epictetus. This is not the first time Ashton has been faced with cheating accusations. In 2010, Star magazine claimed Ashton stepped out on his marriage twice first with a woman at Los Angeles Madeo Restaurant in July, and later, with a woman he allegedly met at Lucky Strikes Lanes in Hollywood. The actor addressed the first round of cheating rumors on his Twitter writing, I think Star magazine calling me a cheater qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees STAR magazine - you dont get to stand behind freedom of the press when you are writing fiction. Demi also chimed in on the matter at the time, Tweeting, Excellent point my love! In September, 2010, Ashtons attorney, Marty Singer denied the allegations, telling Access Hollywood, Star Magazine continuously publishes lies about Ashton Kutcher and many other celebrities. This is not the first, nor will it be the last time they engage in reckless conduct. At the time, a rep for Star told Access, Star stands by its story. Copyright 2011 by NBC Universal, Inc.

Maisel talks 'new wave' of bigscreen games

Forget superheroes. The next wave of major movie franchises may come from casual games, starting with ''Angry Wild wild birds.''That was this content shipped by former Marvel Art galleries chairman David Maisel, who's now an effective consultant to ''Angry Birds'' creator Rovio.Maisel, who oversaw the launch of Marvel Studios' movie franchise with ''Iron Guy,'' noted that up to now movie versions of game game titles weren't consistent individuals who win, with 23 films calculating about $35 million domestic box office. ''They've happened by businesses that will decrease your budget and continue to hit only one, instead of the homer you obtain from an 'Avatar' or possibly a hero film.'' With console games, mentioned Maisel, ''the chance of large entertainment franchises wasn't as great.''''With casual gaming, everyone is playing them, In my opinion it's the first time we'll see massive brands being launched of the sport world and superceding what gaming remains.''Rather than changing superheroes this is often a chance to start a brand new wave. Rather than changing superheroes this is often a chance to start a brand new wave.''Maisel mentioned the selling potential of casual games may also be huge. ''It was formerly inside your create a global merchandisable property was using a blockbuster picture or using a really effective global cartoon show. Both people the situation is really pricey and hard to do. Despite a film enable you to get observed don't normally sell much merchandise round the first movie, it's round the follow-up.''But ''Angry Wild wild birds,'' he mentioned, is creating interest unlike anything he ever saw within the movie career. ''It really helps to make the statistics in the (''Angry Birds'') movie harder, because we are in a position to probably sell the product without any movie.''Maisel mentioned he hopes ''Angry Birds'' will illustrate for the movie business the opportunity of ''massive brands coming within the gaming realm.'' ''I think the awareness was already getting away . there this new technology and an opportunity to experience our phones can launch massive brands with techniques that's never been done before.''

Roland Emmerich Sets Sights On JFK Movie 'Happy Birthday Mr. President'

As someone who knows his way around special effects, director Roland Emmerich could be a great candidate to use the digital aging technology that has been used for special effects in films like "The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button," "Watchmen" and "X-Men 3." The subject came up when MTV News caught up with Emmerich at the Toronto Film Festival to talk about his upcoming period thriller, "Anonymous," which employs two sets of actors to play the same roles at different ages. We asked Emmerich if he might be interested in de-aging an actor digitally, or even better/more challenging, bringing one back from the dead, FX re-animator, lost footage style and he revealed he's already at work on a movie that relies heavily on that very technology. "I am. I'm totally into that," Emmerich admitted. "I have one project which actually tries to do that, but I think we're not there yet. I made some tests that didn't turn out very well, so I think we have to wait another five years." And what might the mystery project be? "The title will tell you everything, it's called 'Happy Birthday Mr. President.'" True to his word about the revealing title, Emmerich admitted the future film would revolve around Marilyn Monroe's famous birthday serenade for President John F. Kennedy, and likely the relationship surrounding it. Emmerich said that the film is a long way away from being made, however, at least until the proper aging technology is mastered. "Yes, one day, one day," Emmerich said hopefully. "People are kind of courageous to do something like that." What do you think of Emmerich taking on JFK and Marilyn?

Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham and 50 Cent Play Russian Roulette in Trailer for '13' (VIDEO)

With U.S. distribution locked down last week, Gela Babluani's '13' now has a brand-new trailer. A remake of Babluani's own '13 Tzameti,' '13' revolves around a group of seriously desperate men who enter an underground, winner-take-all Russian roulette tournament in the hopes of making it out alive -- and being all the richer for it. The film stars Sam Riley, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Michael Shannon, Ray Winstone, Alexander Skarsgard, and Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, and -- if the trailer ahead is any indication -- most of them will probably die. Didn't any of these guys watch 'The Deer Hunter?' We're sticking with the penny slots. Look for '13' in theaters on Nov. 8. [via Yahoo! Movies]

TCA:Cross-Dressing Comedy 'Work It' Steals The Spotlight At ABC's Executive Session

At the end of ABC's TCA executive panel, president Paul Lee admitted that he had asked a network PR executive beforehand, "Shall I go out in a dress?" That probably would've been appropriate given that ABC's new cross-dressing comedy Work It, which has not even been scheduled yet, emerged as the main attraction at the Q&A session even somewhat overshadowing the official announcement of Desperate Housewives coming to an end. The first mention of the Bosom Buddies-esque multi-camera comedy starring Ben Koldyke and Amaury Nolasco as out-of-work car salesmen who dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps, came when Lee was asked to discuss the network's new crop of comedies. When he got to Work It, the British-born Lee said, "It was in my contract that I have to do one cross-dressing show a year, I was brought up on Monty Python." Later on he was asked about a trend of many new shows featuring central characters who are orphans that harkens back to Victorian times and Charles Dickens. While admitting that he didn't notice an orphan pattern in picking up series, Lee noted, "We don't sit there and think, 'Work It! That goes all the way back to Shakespeare!'" After all that, appropriately, the last question of the session, attended mainly by TV critics, was about Work It, and the Shakespeare and Monty Python comparisons. "When you pick up pilots, there are many reasons," Lee said. "Sometimes you pick up a pilot just because it absolutely makes you cackle with laughter, and that was the case with Work It. I make absolutely no excuses for that show. We didnt think this room would like it and I dont think we have a problem with that."

Curiosity: Did God Produce the World?

Created by Darlow Smithson. Senior executive producer (series), Simon Andreae executive producers, Alan Eyres, John Smithson, Ben Bowie, Susan Winslow. 60 MIN."Curiosity" -- an extensive initiative made to tackle an eclectic variety of provocative and puzzling subjects -- certainly lives as much as that billing in the premiere, an adaptation of Stephen Hawking's book "The Grand Design," where the famous physicist concludes God did not produce the world. Very little else about the menu looks determined to match this as "Large Questions" go, but kudos to Discovery for venturing to address what it really precisely dubs "the 3rd rail of academia and theology," at any given time when hostility to science and insufficient intellectual curiosity frequently taints political discourse. Thematically, the "Curiosity" special offers -- to encompass 60 payments over 5 years, within plan created by Discovery founder John Hendricks -- should challenge and enlighten. With science trapped by individuals in opposition to its most bothersome facts, some subjects surely appear more questionable than the others. Just like his 2010 documentary series "In to the World," Hawking provides some narration, giving way up to the more stately sounding actor Benedict Cumberbatch waiting in for him. Clearly conscious the scientist's conclusions will outrage followers in Divine Creation, the funnel plans an hourlong round-table discussion with theologians to follow along with. Hawking is really a master at offerring complex ideas in easily understood terms, and also the producers help illustrate individuals points with elaborate graphics -- from Vikings enduring threatening seas to some tennis match showing the laws and regulations of character. Like a researcher, Hawking concludes, it's totally valid to question "whether we want a God to describe the world whatsoever," proceeding to systematically construct the situation for that Large Bang Theory (and what could create something from nothingness) and natural laws and regulations that do not need a spiritual component. Of course, the premiere is really a tough act to follow along with, intellectually speaking, and little of what's slated for coming days seems equally inspired rather, many game titles are skewed to popular culture or sci-fi -- "Exactly why is Sex Fun?," "Would You Live Forever?" and "Could Computer systems Overtake Humans?" -- and have celebrity hosts. Still, if this involves science on television, anything able to enticing a crowd to consume their veggies appears useful. And even when not every one of this undertaking matches Hawking's large brain, the perfect of utilizing TV to arouse viewers' curiosity surely qualifies being an intelligent design.

Terry Gilliam Has (Mr) Vertigo

Adapting Paul Auster's novelTimbuktu and In The Country of Lost Things are stuck in Development Hell, but author Paul Auster may soon have something to celebrate adaptation-wise. Terry Gilliam has just revealed that he's working on a screenplay of Auster's 1994 novel Mr Vertigo. Speaking at a film festival in Poland, Gilliam revealed that work on the book is underway. This being Gilliam, however, the announcement came with the cheerful caveat that we won't necessarily ever see a complete film: I got a book. It's called Mr Vertigo by Paul Auster. Doesn't mean it will be a film, but I'm working on a script. The novel is stylistically slightly removed from the rest of Auster's work, in that it reads like a sort of magic-realist fable, which obviously kicks it right into Gilliam's field. It's the story of Walt the Wonder Boy, looking back late in life at his youthful fame performing anti gravitational feats (he can levitate) in a travelling show run by the mysterious Master Yehudi. Fame and fortune await, but there are also Depression-era dark times ahead, courtesy of the Mob, the Klan, and Uncle Slim.... Despite his being brilliant, the general oddness of Auster's work means we don't see him adapted much (although Philip Haas' The Music of Chance is really good), and his most famous screen work is still the diptych of Smoke and Blue in the Face, which he co-created with Wayne Wang. It's all been rather quiet on Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote for the last year or so, so fingers crossed Mr Vertigo will be the project that finally gets him back behind a camera. The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus was already too long ago.
