Waaahhh!! No Transformers Next Year

Transformers II

Well, it’s difficult enough trying to wait until next June to catch the next installment of Transformers. Now we find out that the movie has been pushed back to an unspecified new release date for unknown reasons. While the film is rumored to already have a script, with the writers’ strike still ongoing that script cannot be, um, transformed into the final well-polished version we’re all expecting. (Excuse me while I grab a pillow to sob into, just for a moment….. There, that’s better.)…

Madea the Trekkie???

Tyler Perry

Here’s some odd, but cool, news on the Star Trek front: Tyler Perry, aka the big black down-to-earth Southern matriarch Madea, has landed a role in the upcoming Star Trek feature film from JJ Abrams. (While we love Madea, we’re going to hope and assume that he’s not in his trademark drag for this one!!) This is Perry’s first gig in a film which is not his own, and we’re hoping it leads to more for this talented actor/director/producer…

Mr. Eko Joins the Joes

Adewale Akinnuoye

Adewale Akinnuoye

He’ll always be Mr. Eko to Lost fans – but it’s great to see that the talented Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje has landed a role in a decent feature film. He’ll play the part of Heavy Duty, with the rest of the announced cast as follows:

  • Rachel Nichols (Alias) – Scarlett
  • Said Taghmaoui (The Kite Runner) – Breaker
  • Sienna Miller (Stardust) – Baroness
  • Ray Park (Star Wars: Episode One) – Snake Eyes
