There’s a rumor going around—a dirty, dirty rumor—that Robert Pattinson, he of the tea-pouring hands and mothering hips, has somehow risen to the top of Disney’s wish list for their inevitable Indiana Jones reboot. Look, Pattinson is not a terrible actor. He’s really not. Full Story

Over the weekend Marvel wrapped up their (desperate) search for a new Ant-Man director after Edgar Wright suddenly dumped their ass a couple weeks ago. After working through a series of comedy directors, they landed on Peyton Reed. Who? Well, nerds are freaking out because he’s “best known” for Jim Carrey’s blah Yes Man (I say that with sarcasti-quotes because implying that Peyton Reed is known outside industry circles is a huge assumption), but Reed is an Upright Citizens’ Brigade affiliate and, more importantly, he directed Bring It On. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Box office experts are predicting that The Fault In Our Stars will be #1 this weekend, ahead of Tom Cruise’s Edge Of Tomorrow. People really loved that book. As previously noted, I did not love that book. I mean it was OK, it didn’t suck.  Read Full Intro

Edge Of Tomorrow comes out tomorrow. Have you seen the reviews? They’re really quite positive. And even the ones that aren’t positive aren’t mega sh-t either. Someone who works in the industry said to me that even though people are wary of his Xenu association, there is an undeniable amount of goodwill in Hollywood for Tom Cruise. Full Story

Oh I’ve been hoping for it for a long time. I’ve been rubbing my Gossip Genie desperately to make this happen. In 2010 I wished for it here. And since then every 6 months or so. When Rachel and Michael Sheen broke up I wished for it again here Full Story

Bradley Cooper was photographed yesterday in super tight super short shorts on the set of American Sniper directed by Clint Eastwood. At one point, he and all the other army actors had to get on the ground and do drills. Then some dude came around and sprayed them with water. Are we shooting a fireman calendar here? This might be the best job he’s ever had. Full Story

Mila, Channing and the February woodshed

Late yesterday Warner Brothers announced that the Wachowski siblings’ new movie starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, Jupiter Ascending (aka Jackie and Potatohead Do Space), has been kicked from its sweet July 18 opening to February 6, 2015. It’s not surprising. When the tracking data was released for July movies it rated a dismal $18-22 million projection, against an estimated $150 million budget, which is probably a lot closer to $200 million in reality. Full Story

Ever since Edgar Wright abruptly left Ant-Man a little over a week ago, Marvel has been listening to “I Will Survive” on repeat, drinking wine coolers, and promising that it’s “like soooooo fine.” To that end, Marvel is already dating around, looking for a new director. Full Story

Angelina Jolie is in Shanghai promoting Maleficent. The movie did well at the box office here. And there’s so much money over in China, she has to go get it. Brad Pitt did not join her for the trip. We’ll come back to him later. As you can see, she’s wearing another pair of those custom Louboutins that were made for her for this press tour. Full Story

Tilda Swinton is shooting a film called Trainwreck in New York which is also how I would explain how her character’s been styled – a trainwreck. Tilda Swinton’s playing Jennifer Aniston. It’s hard to look at. I hate it. It’s making me grumpy. Toronto’s a muggy wet mess today. Full Story
