It has been nearly six years since the Aussie horror flick "Wolf Creek" turned the heads of genre film fans around the world. If you think the film about a group of backpackers held captive be a crazed serial killer was just for horror enthusiasts guess again. The film notched seven Australian Film Institute awards, including Best Director for Greg Mclean who followed up his debut shocker with "Rogue," a less impressive man-eating-alligator thriller that starred Sam Worthington. But Mclean is ready to head back to the film that put him on the map, as Mick Taylor is back to carve up more unfortunately travellers in "Wolf Creek 2."

If Pee-Wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens) has his way, that is. Though Herman appeared at Comic-Con International's massive Hall H on Thursday to share info about his new film with Judd Apatow (and generally charm the crowd), he kept this choice detail for an interview with MTV. There's no commitment from Bieber -- yet -- likely because Thursday's interview was the first time Herman mentioned this, but Bieber reads mtv.com, right?

A couple of new images have arrived from Wong Kar-wai's latest, "The Grandmasters," but somewhat disappointingly, they continue to simply show the same fighting scene which has dominated all of the film's limited marketing so far.

The sleeper success of "Easy A" seems to have brought good fortune on the major players involved. It certainly launched the career of already rising star Emma Stone into the stratosphere, with Will Gluck quickly moving up the ladder with "Friends With Benefits" opening this past weekend, with a few more projects in the works including another team-up with Stone and an adaptation of "Sex On The Moon." Moreover, he also inked a two-year deal with Sony. Not bad. And if we're feeling generous, we'll even say that Penn Badgley's recent casting in "Greetings From Tim Buckley" where he'll play Jeff Buckley certainly wasn't hurt by his turn as the harmless love interest in the comedy. Now, another name from the film is ready to capitalize on its success.

Has anybody seen America Ferrera since "Ugly Betty" ended? Ever since the sitcom went off air in mid-2010, Ferrera has been seemingly off the radar in terms of projects we genuinely care about (though she did lend her voice to the beloved animated film "How To Train Your Dragon").

If done properly, there's nothing better than a self-referential cameo to get audiences excited about a re-make or adaptation (fingers crossed for Johnny Depp in "21 Jump Street," and director Fede Alvarez recently confirmed Bruce Campbell's appearance in "Evil Dead'). Bloody Disgusting has reported that at a "Dark Shadows" panel at Comic-Con 2011, it was announced that four original cast members of the cult '60s show will be making cameos in Tim Burton's long-gestating adaptation, starring Depp. Stars Lara Parker (Angelique), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans and Josette du Pres), David Selby (Quentin Collins) and the one and only Jonathan Frid (who played Barnabas Collins in the TV show, the role Depp has taken over) spent three days filming at Pinewood Studios. No word on what their roles will be or how they will fit into the movie.

Comic-Con '11: After Sony’s "The Amazing Spider-Man" presentation Friday afternoon, Comic-Con attendees appeared to have relatively few other films or properties to get excited about. But Relativity Media maximized the potential of their upcoming sword-and-sandal opus "Immortals" with a panel featuring cast and crew members as well as a presentation of some footage which, as one colleague put it, felt about perfect for screening in the convention’s centerpiece showroom, whether or not its charm translates to commercial success down the road.
