The pieces are starting to come together for (deep breath) "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame To Kill For." Following the events of the first film, and/or occuring concurrently, the production has already confirmed the return of Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba, and here comes one more. The character of Dwight will apparently re-appear, with Clive Owen reprising his role from part one. We recently asked Owen about his involvement, and he was cagey in his denial, though it does appear the project has only recently begun to take shape.

Looks like "Fast & Furious 6" is getting fuel injected with some kick-ass estrosgen. With Gina Carano joining the pic last week and Rihanna being rumored to play the villain (while reps stay noticeably mum, though not denying anything), a familiar female face is returning to the gearhead series.

On the same day that Mel Gibson’s new movie, the enjoyably junky and excessively violent “Get the Gringo” (formerly “How I Spent My Summer Vacation”), was screened across the country via a bizarre satellite transmission (based out of Austin, Texas), another expletive-laced Gibson rant was unleashed on the internet (this time, instead of his estranged girlfriend, Gibson’s ire was directed at “Showgirls” screenwriter Joe Eszterhas, shockingly not for writing “Showgirls”). It was a perfectly timed example of the duality of Gibson the artist (he not only stars in ‘Gringo’ but also co-wrote and produced) and Gibson the unhinged fucking madman. It’s enough to make you wonder if maybe Gibson hasn’t succeeded despite his obvious insanity, but because of it, especially since “Get the Gringo” is so insanely entertaining.

We presume Robert Rodriguez didn't keep him waiting around for the script (ZING). Just over a week since it was reported that Rodriguez wanted Mel Gibson for a role in "Machete Kills," it looks like he got him.

Right now is either the best time or the worst time for Mel Gibson to be opening a movie called "Get The Gringo." They say there is no such thing as bad press, and like it or not, the new allegations of rage-and-hate-fueled anti-Semitism being leveled at the actor/director guarantees his straight-to-VOD offering will be getting a lot more attention than it might have otherwise.

The honor for Most Surprising Sequel Announcement Of 2012 was briefly held by "Anchorman 2" until yesterday afternoon when out of nowhere, Robert Rodriguez and company revealed that production on the long developing, forever talked about "Sin City" followup -- now titled "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" -- was going to go in front of cameras with casting to start next week. And that news nearly made us forget about the other sequel Rodriguez is gearing up, "Machete Kills," and once again, he's hoping to land some big names.

Any day now, director George Miller will finally get rolling in Namibia on "Fury Road," the long-awaited continuation of the "Mad Max" series. Starring Tom Hardy in the role that launched Mel Gibson's career, with a cast that also includes Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, the film's been in the works for years, but to be getting underway in the next month or two.

Whose Crazy Has The Most Truth? Joe Eszterhas & Mel Gibson Battle Spills Online With Anti-Semitic Slurs Leading The Charge

Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Mel Gibson's Jewish epic about Maccabee, the man who led a Jewish revolt against the Greek-Syrian armies that conquered Judea in the second century B.C., was put on hold at Warner Bros. because the script by Joe Eszterhas ("Basic Instinct," "Jade") wasn't working. And then things got ugly. The Wrap posted a scathing nine-page letter the screenwriter had privately sent Gibson, and it's an eye-melting read, giving a first-hand account of the actor/director's rage and, more troublingly, his apparent unwavering anti-Semitism. Deadline got in the game with a statement from Gibson that calmly denied the charges. So it's Eszterhas vs. Gibson, and both stories are wildly different, and we'd reckon as these things usually go, the truth stands somewhere in the middle. So let's break it down...

"Hey, let's give Mel Gibson a bunch of money to make a period based, swords-and-sandals epic about a pivotal moment in Jewish history!"....that's not a sentence you'll be hearing at Warner Bros. now or probably anytime soon, as the studio has put the brewing epic movie on hold. Can't say we're shocked.

When it was announced that Mel Gibson was teaming with writer Joe Eszterhas for a biblical epic about Jewish historical figure Judah Maccabee, we more or less assumed that it would mean the death of his long-gestating Viking epic, which was originally supposed to team Gibson with William Monahan, Graham King and Leonardo DiCaprio. Monahan even confirmed late last year that he never wrote a word for the project and that, as far as he knew, it never went past the announcement. Well, it looks like throughout all his recent struggles, Gibson never gave up on his Viking dreams.
