Michael Bay. He loves making cars bounce.

Superman usually gets in the mainstream press because he’s dying or getting married or changing his costume. But this week he’s all over the news for his political views. Yup, you read that right, his political views?!? Or, to be more precise, a discussed action. In this case, the notion that he’s going to renounce his American citizenship. This has caused a furor online and off. For a good rundown of all that you might want to look at Bleeding Cool’s coverage.

You couldn’t get through the nineties without multiple viewings of the Van Damme/Pyum skiffy classic Cyborg. You saw it on cable. You saw it on VHS. You saw it in your dreams. It was just part of your life. And now it seems that a remake may be in our future, helmed by Pyun himself. He had this to say to Twitch:
It will be an epic of post apocalyptic cyber punk movie filled with an Expendables type all star casting of action stars. I think it will be a true metal classic! A violent mash up of my Cyborg and Nemesis action movies. Should begin shooting in late summer.
Hmmm … sounds intriguing. And for those who don’t remember Cyborg: Check out the original theatrical trailer after the jump …
Some think so. And here’s another bit of evidence to add to the pile from P.J.’s Facebook page:
I am sad to report that Rob Kazinsky, who was cast in the role of Fili, is having to leave The Hobbit and return home, for personal reasons. Rob has been terrific to work with and his enthusiasm and infectious sense of humour will be missed by all of us. I should say that Rob’s departure will not affect ongoing filming of The Hobbit, nor will it impact work done to date, as we had yet to film much of Fili’s storyline. At the moment we are shooting scenes featuring Bilbo without the Dwarves, which will give us time to find a new Fili. I’ll keep everyone posted with updates as they come.
If stuff like this continues expect the curse talk to ratchet up!
