Well hot-damn! This has now officially spread like wildfire across the web over the last 12 hours, since I posted it early yesterday morning; even mainstream sites like Entertainment Weekly, Huffington Post, and many others have picked up the story. So, I figured I'd repost it, along with the fact that it has indeed been officially confirmed, posted here yesterday (reminding you of where you read it first), and later by others, that, yes, British actress Naomie Harris is indeed in talks to play the "Bond Girl" role in the next 007 movie, Bond 23. Though the actress is still mum about whether or not she'll take the role.

Still no word on when we can expect the film to eventually make its debut; The trailer for the biopic, starring Jennifer Hudson as the titular character, and Terrence Howard as Nelson Mandela, was met with much ridicule and derision when we unveiled it last fall, to the chagrin of its producers, and maybe to the real Winnie Mandela as well - the woman whose life the film is based on, given her documented objections to the production of the film in early 2010, for which she was not consulted at all.

Well... at least it could mean more work, and thus a paycheck for Mr Chiwetel Ejiofor, and given the way the first one ended, it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel.

We've long wondered WTF happened to the George Lucas-produced Tuskegee Airmen actioner, Red Tails; very little news has surfaced since last year's rumor that Lucas was unhappy with what had been done with the film at that point, and had essentially taking it over from director Anthony Hemingway and writer John Ridley. Although, Lucas' people denied those rumors.

I knew a film based on the lives of The Three Stooges was in the works, but, frankly, I haven't been paying any attention at all to any of the project's developments. No interest really.
