As we already know, Chris Tucker doesn't work very often. 1995's "Friday" launched the comic actor's film career thanks to his hilarious turn as the pot loving Smokey, but while the film became a hit spawning two sequels -- "Next Friday" and "Friday After Next" -- Tucker went on to other things, mostly involving Brett Ratner. Next year will mark a decade since the last installment in the franchise, but it looks like New Line wants to take another puff.

It's been a bit of a disappointing 2011 for Pixar fans. The famed animation studio spent the year spinning its wheels both creatively and figuratively "Cars 2," the second straight sequel from the studio built around orginal ideas, with two "Toy Story" shorts making their way to theaters as well. But don't worry, 2012 finds the company not only returning with their first original film since "Up," it will also the first picture from Pixar to feature a female protoganist. And in case you doubted that Pixar still had the goods, the newest trailer for the film that just hit Facebook is as dazzling and exciting as you might expect.

This long-gestating biopic of rapper Tupac Shakur backed by production shingle Morgan Creek just can't catch a break, can it? After seeing Antoine Fuqua come on board only to leave, return and then seemingly step aside for John Singleton, it looks like negotiations for the latter to officially take over have now fallen apart as well.

Hot on the heels of Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter conviction, Variety is reporting that John Branca, the executor of the Michael Jackson estate, has begun shopping around a biopic of the beloved singer. Apparently discussions have begun with Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito Picture Company about acquiring the rights, because if there's anyone you want to tell the complex, multifaceted story of the greatest pop entertainer of the century, it's certainly the guys who brought us "Road Trip" and "Hotel for Dogs." Talk about Bad.
