A brief intermission
• Fantastic Four director Tim Story has taken a liking to comic books, signing a deal to shoot another movie, this time based on DC Comics’ The Losers, Reuters says. If Jessica Alba’s acting is a true indication of Story’s directing talent, the title seems very fitting.
• Bill Murray follows the trend of once-raunchy comic actors like Eddie Murphy and Tim Allen venturing into kids’ films by agreeing to star in City of Ember, a family movie from Gil Kenan, who directed Monster House, the Hollywood Reporter says. Hopefully he won’t star as every character, too.
• The latest remake of a Korean horror film, A Tale of Two Sisters, will boast as its marquee name Elizabeth Banks, the Hollywood Reporter adds. When your star is the woman who played Dr. Briggs on Scrubs, our hopes are not high.
