John McClane Could Fight Russians With Son In New ScriptThere's news today about "Die Hard 5" -- the sequel no one has been asking for and nobody really wants. Well aside from Bruce Willis and 20th Century Fox bean counters. According to TwitchFilm, filmmaker Noam Murro has left the fifth installment of the John McClane franchise due to shooting demands on "Xerxes," aka the "300" sequel/prequel now called, "300: Battle of Artemisia" which is looking to go before cameras sooner rather than later.

Even though he died over 25 years ago, Andy Kaufman can still ignite impassioned arguments over his brand of humor, his career and whether or not he faked his own death in 1984. Those who understood Kaufman will typically find themselves at a loss when trying to articulate exactly why his work was so important; you either get it or you don’t. Most people who do not understand Kaufman’s unique style of audience interaction vilify him as untalented or a hack.

It was just over a week ago when director Cameron Crowe teased on his website that despite earlier indications that the soundtrack to his forthcoming "We Bought a Zoo" would contain lots of Neil Young and Eddie Vedder, another mystery artist was vying for the gig. “I think it’s going to lean heavily into one or two artists, but not necessarily either of them. We did play a lot of Eddie, Neil and PJ during the movie. It’s kind of revealing itself now,” Crowe explained. “There is another artist who is campaigning in the editing room with his music ala Cat Stevens in ‘Harold and Maude.’ We’ll see how far it gets.” Well, Crowe hasn't taken too long to let the secret out.

It seems in the not-so-distant future, assholes still rule. Anyway, after dropping a wealth of footage at Comic-Con, it seems Fox wants to give away as much of this movie as possible before it hits theaters (reminiscent of their campaign for "X-Men: First Class"), so now barely one week later, we now have a trailer for the increasingly silly looking "In Time."
