Look at those eyes…

Nikke Finke Exclusive:

..He was an enigmatic legend, and it looks as if the picture that just came together will do that justice. I’ve just learned that Universal has acquired this project based on the life of Frank Sinatra from Mandalay Pictures. Phil Alden Robinson is writing the screenplay, and Marty Scorsese will direct as well as produce through his Sikelia Productions….

Credit Card Interest Rate Cap Fails in the Senate…

Update 2: It is an Amendment to the bill to cap the interest that failed, betcha Bernie Saunders I-VT proposed it, the more I think about it the more I think this is something that would make TOTUS and Dodd happy actually, for some insane reasons financial firms keep supporting them and this is quid pro quo no bout adout it, heh…from WSJ blogs:

Several senators are expected to seek caps for credit-card interest rates, with a proposed ceiling as low as 18%. Caps on rates are unlikely to draw enough bipartisan support to clear the full Senate, however. Even if one of the proposals for a higher cap (around 36%) did pass, it would face resistance even from some Democrats in the House (where legislation passed with strong bipartisan support — and no rate caps).

UPDATE:Here is the Bill on Senate.gov, no update yet….

Ryan Reynolds Talks Deadpool and Wade Wilson

Ryan talking about Deadpool before the decision was made to film a stand alone for Wade/Deadpool/Ryan..If Ryan has his way as he describes what he would ideally do, it will kick axx…Vodpod videos no longer available.

Deadpool co-creator Rob Leffield spoke to MTV’s Splash about the way Deadpool was handled in X-Men Origins: Wolverine:

Rob Liefeld has been around the comic book industry long enough to see some of its most famous characters created on paper and re-created on film. This year, one of his own made its big-screen debut when Ryan Reynolds played Deadpool in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” (And Liefeld’s original team series “Youngbloodmight not be far behind in making its debut, too.) MTV News chatted up the Image Comics co-founder to get his reaction to Deadpool’s first appearance on the big screen, and to find out what he hopes gets left behind when the character moves on to his own solo film.

“I have a scale, with worst possible interpretation of a character being Halle Berry as Catwoman, to best possible interpretation of a character being Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Ron Perlman as Hellboy, Patrick Stewart as Professor X, or Christian Bale as Batman,” Liefeld told MTV News. “I would put Deadpool, in this inception, much closer to the side where they got it right.”

Liefeld praised the movie’s version of Deadpool as being true to his initial vision for the wisecracking mercenary — and explained why the character audiences saw at the end of the film isn’t actually that far off. “When I created Deadpool, the entire backstory that was pitched was that he was the junk left over from a bad Weapon X experiment,” Liefeld explained. “When I look at the film, there’s no reason he can’t go and become that guy I created.”

However, that’s not to say that director Gavin Hood and the film’s writers got off without any criticism from Liefeld. “Look, katanas coming out of the hand? Not a fan. But you get over it,” he admitted. “Do I believe Deadpool will be shooting optic blasts out of his eyes down the road? No, I don’t believe he will.

Blast’s Kellen Rice has the pros and cons of  the up and coming Deadpool flick:

About as soon as the opening weekend box office returns from “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” were announced, Fox swallowed the blue pill and greenlit “X-Men Origins: Deadpool,” a “Wolverine” sequel and a third, unnamed project. Deadpool, a fan-favorite character played by Ryan Reynolds in “Wolverine,” is a (crazy) mercenary who peppers his stories with wisecracks and quips. He has a healing factor that supersedes even Wolverine’s and is one of the most formidable fighters in the X-Men universe.

FOX picks up Human Target: Will it be paired with TSCC or Dollhouse?

HumanTarget01

Come on TSCC!

Newsarama Blogs:

..Fox has given Human Target a go as a new fall series based on the strength of the pilot. The show, based on a DC, and later Vertigo comic, will be the second try for a TV version of the story. The first try lasted only seven episodes and will likely not be referenced in this version. Mark Valley is starring as Christopher Chance, the titular character, and will be supported by Jackie Earle Hayley and Chi McBride.

No word yet on how many episodes will be ordered or when the show will air.

It will be interesting to see what other show the series is paired with, as the fate of both Dollhouse and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, two series that might be naturals, are up in the air. Fox’s other sci-fi series, Fringe, has already been given a full second season order.

Hollywood Reporter later confirmed the news….

AirlockAlpha is reporting at least one FOX Executive wants to pair Dollhouse with Human Resistance on Monday nights. I call BULLSHIT!!!! TSCC was doing GREAT on Mondays!!! Mondays belong to TSCC dammit give it back! Frakkers!!!!

The ratings were never all that good, but that might not stop Fox from ordering a second season of “Dollhouse.”

Despite all the proclamations that the show is as good as dead, especially since its season finale’s ratings rivaled that of what was found on The CW, it seems that Fox isn’t ready to fully shut the door just yet.

Series star and executive producer Eliza Dushku told her Twitter followers Tuesday afternoon that not only has Fox not made a final decision on her show, but they’re still talking about.

“‘Dollhouse’ talks are goin’ on,” Dushku wrote. “It’d be an extravaganza bonanza to return” for round two.

A couple hours later, Dushku added a second note saying “this innocent Tweeting sure does travel … keep spreading my words, guys. I’m on the road and need my Browncoats,” referring to fans of another Joss Whedon series that many fans believe was canceled too soon, “Firefly.”

…Finally, at least one executive is rumored to be in love with a possible Monday night pairing of “Dollhouse” and a show the network is said to be picking up, the DC Comics-based “Human Target,” which could attract similar audiences. That show is based on the comic series that debuted in 1972 from Len Wein and Carmine Infantino, where a private detective can take on the personalities and skills of his clients.

Don’t get your hopes up too high. The chances are still not good for a “Dollhouse” pickup, but it seems fans aren’t ready to read its eulogy until Fox makes an official announcement, expected later this week.

TVBytheNumbers continues to bash any renewal chances for all the shows that generate BUZZ!

But does “Dollhouse” even have a chance? The people at TV By The Numbers say no, with writer Bill Gorman as late as last week saying there’s “no drama at all in Fox’s renewal announcements.”

“I mostly see the talk is just that, talk,” another writer for the site, Robert Seidman, said in a post April 27. “TV is a sales business, and positive spin/putting lipstick on the ratings (as opposed to quality) pigs seems the rule rather than the exception. It’s just in their DNA.”
