Oh, that George Clooney. Always making political movies no one really wants to see, ending up on several government watchlists, and being a super-sexy movie star. But he's no Rupert Goold, and that is why Clooney's name will soon become synonymous with "Enron." Goold's West End play of the same title has been snatched up by producer Laura Ziskin, with George Clooney attached to direct. And Goold is not happy.

This weekend’s story? Everyone stayed home. The post-Thanksgiving weekend is usually somewhat quiet, lending itself to holdovers, but this weekend was fairly moribund. Consider this a missed opportunity for the movie studios in 2010, with every single weekend graced by at least one big release filling a necessary void. Instead, we had only one un-threatening semi-wide release and the expansion of a number of art house titles.

Likens It To An Old-Girlfriend Coming Back And Stepping DownYou'll recall a few weeks before Darren Aronofsky took the gig for "The Wolverine," then colloquially known as "Wolverine 2," several high-profile directors were in contention for the job -- or at least in discussions -- and one of those filmmaker was "Twilight: Eclipse" and "30 Days Of Night" director David Slade (other names included Robert Schwentke and allegedly Matt Reeves and Tony Scott, to name a few).

Jenna Dewan Tatum aka Mrs. Channing Tatum Also JoinsWe kind of feel for Ryan Philllippe. He's a very talented actor who always seems to get saddled with projects that sound good on paper but end up disappointing for underperforming or both. After "Flags Of Our Fathers," Phillippe starred in a trio of non-starters "Breach," "Stop-Loss" and "Franklyn" and then popped up in a comedic turn in the underrated "MacGruber." But now he's set to take a page out of the Matt Dillon School Of Role Choices.

Are you ready for the rousing story of a band who competes with U2 and loses? No? Well, it's coming anyway and if anything, it makes us wonder how we can spin our tales of failed musical glory into an indie movie.

As movieheads know, Ryan Gosling was initially set to star as the father in Peter Jackson's "The Lovely Bones." However, when the actor showed up 60 pounds overweight and not quite looking like his normally hunky self, he and the director butted heads leading to the actor's very public removal from the project with everyone citing "creative differences" as the problem. Both Gosling and Jackson have more or less skirted the incident in subsequent interviews....until now.

O RLY? Ernie Hudson Claims Bill Murray Is The 'Ghostbusters 3' Hold Up

This won't come as any shock. "Ghostbusters" actor Ernie Hudson -- who played Winston Zeddemore, the late enlister with the Ghostbusters in the 1984 original film -- says Bill Murray is the hold up for the still-gestating "Ghostbusters 3" picture. Anybody coulda really told you that. All the four Ghostbusters have script approval -- the real "four" being Murray, director Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis -- and they have to all be on the same page for the movie to move forward.
