Bruce Willis has signed on for Pinkville, Oliver Stone’s drama about the 1968 My Lai massacre in Vietnam, E! Online reports. Willis will play the general investigating the incident, spending half the movie explaining to kids that a protracted land war in Asia started for dubious reasons is actually set in the past.

300 mastermind Zack Snyder is sharpening his pencil for The Illustrated Man, a project based on the Ray Bradbury collection of short stories, the Hollywood Reporter says. One of the unbelievable tales is about a movie director who hits the big time after making flicks about zombies and comic books.

Quentin Tarantino, in a wheelchair from a back injury and accompanied by no-billing actress Tiffany Limos, caused a stir on a flight from the Philippines last week by making a flight attendant cry after insisting he be allowed to sit on the floor, the New York Post reports. We’re betting he also told that stewardess that he wanted her to be in his sequel to Grindhouse.
