Daily Movie News

Its Wednesday time for your Daily Movie News.

* MTV talked to David S. Goyer for what we can expect for Ghost Rider 2, which he says its not exactly a reboot, but picks up 8 years after the first film. He said " I hate to say it's more realistic, because he's got a flaming skull for a head, but its a bit more stripped down and darker," he also said "It's definitely changing tone. What "Casino Royale" was for the Bond movies. Hopefully this will be to Ghost Rider."

* The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have announced that Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin will serve as co-host of the 82nd Academy Awards.

* Anthony Hopkins has been cast as the Norse God Odin in Marvel Studios Thor. The film is to be directed by Kenneth Branagh (Frankenstein). Also starring Chris Hemsworth (Star Trek) and Tom Hiddleston . Natalie Portman is playing Thor's love interest Jane Foster. Filming starts in January 2010, for release on May 20, 2011.

* Columbia Pictures has hired Tropic Thunder writer Etan Cohen to pen the script for Men in Black 3. So far no deals have been made with franchise director, Barry Sonnenfield, and stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones to return. Studio looking to start filming in 2010, maybe as early as the spring. I don't know why they didn't make a sequel years ago with the $1.1 billion made by first two.

* ABC has a huge hit on their hands with the remake of the 1983 TV miniseries V. The remake brought in 13.9 million viewers for the pilot. This means that V is the biggest show to premiere at 8p.m. since Lost premiered. This is not including the DVR views of the show.

* Michael Jackson's Documentary This is It came in 1st at box office with $21 million. This is a little under the estimates but still very good.
