Also Says He Was Offered 'Daredevil' & Was In Early Talks For Henri Ducard In 'Batman Begins'Perhaps taking a page from Charlie Sheen, in an interview with Vulture on the eve of the Oscars, Guy Pearce -- who stars in the frontrunning picture "The King's Speech" -- has decided to drop some truth bombs all over the place. And what does he care really, because he's not even going to the Oscars. Boo ya. In fact, he doesn't really dig the whole awards show thing and there may be a good reason, as he's still feeling the sting from a film he made over a decade ago.

James Gunn‘s superhero parody, the appropriately titled “Super,” premiered last year at TIFF where it received some strong reviews and landed a distribution deal with IFC. We missed it at the fest but we've liked what we've seen so far and it looks like the first film in a while that will nail a very tricky genre. With its SXSW bow just around the corner, Gunn has debuted a new poster on his site in the style of the folded-up flyers its hero puts up around town.

Patrick Lussier & Todd Farmer Call Amber Heard The "Anti-Damsel In Distress" & Espouse The Emotional Impact Of 3DExclusive: We recently had the opportunity to sit down for an interview with “Drive Angry 3D” director Patrick Lussier (henceforth occasionally referred to as PL) and writer Todd Farmer (henceforth occasionally referred to as TF). We reported on what they had to say regarding their some upcoming new projects yesterday, but we learned a few more things during the chat that we thought you should know. Read on for more on the emotional impact of 3D, William Fichtner’s embodiment of a truly odd antagonist and Amber Heard’s anti-Damsel in Distress character.

While this writer doesn't understand the love for the overrated "Community," Joel McHale is undeniably funny and he's long overdue for some big screen exposure -- though it seems to be his year with "Spy Kids 4," "What's Your Number?" and "The Big Year" all on the way -- and it looks like he's found a new, particularly filthy vehicle that will allow him to continue his transition onto the big screen.

We'll say this: it's kind of amazing the amount of buzz James Franco -- aka The Franco -- has managed to create for himself. It's the kind of chatter and publicity most stars would love to have, but it's all the more remarkable considering that it's only after this weekend when he hosts the Oscars that James Franco will become something of a household name. Sure, he had a co-starring role in the "Spider-Man" films but other than that, he hasn't really toplined a major franchise. But that's all about to change. Later this year he will fight the "Rise of the Apes" and now Deadline reports that the ink is pretty much dry on earlier talks that will find the actor reteaming with Sam Raimi for "Oz: The Great and Powerful."

Also Wants To Adapt Tom Robbins' 'Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates'We miss Johnny Depp. Let us clarify that point. We miss the Johnny Depp of "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?," "Arizona Dream," "Dead Man" and "Donnie Brasco." We miss the young actor who took chances with ambitious directors and material. And while his early work with Tim Burton in films like "Edward Scissorhands" and "Ed Wood" was great, the actor has settled into a comfortable rut, collecting millions upon millions of dollars in tentpole land. And when he's not working with Burton on whatever his next watered down mess will be, he's busy walking the plank in another "Pirates Of The Caribbean" entry or buying his own personal island with the earnings from the turgid superstar failure "The Tourist." But, there is hope on the horizon. He's got the Bruce Robinson directed "The Rum Diary" coming out later this year and he's long been associated with Kathryn Bigelow's gestating drug world drama "Triple Frontier." And now, during press rounds for the upcoming "Rango," Depp reveals he's developing another project that may find him back his winning ways.
