So is this where we're headed? It wasn't that long ago that the blogosphere collectively tired of constant wish list reports that usually amounted to nothing, but the usually excellent Twitch seem to have rebooted the trend hard today. Earlier they reported Josh Brolin was topping the list for "Oldboy" but we have to remind everyone that wishes are just that and they don't often turn into reality. And while you may have a good source perhaps privy to these kinds of conversations, milking them hard and fast early prevents developing more concrete info or simply creates news out of something that was never news to begin with. It's a chicken/egg which-came-first rumor scenario that often winds up with no egg or chicken at all. Considering it was only this morning that Twitch was bemoaning more "unsubstantiated" "Evil Dead" stories, it seems odd they would follow this afternoon with all the speculation.

Remember when it was announced that MGM was moving ahead with a bunch of remakes/reboots and then the studio themselves turned around and denied it? Looks like somebody was fibbing a little bit as the long-gestating reboot of "Robocop" -- which once had Darren Aronofsky attached to direct -- is still a go.

Darren Aronofsky's "Black Swan," his terrific new psychological thriller set in the world of ballet starring Natalie Portman begins its run into theaters this Friday, December 3rd. It's a dazzling confluence of everything the dynamic filmmaker has created to date -- utilizing the raw Super 16mm look he employed in "The Wrestler," the supernatural elements he displayed in "The Fountain" and the immediate camera movement exerted in "Pi." Portman seems like a shoo-in for an Oscar nomination (rightfully so) and the picture already seems to be deeply impressing most critics (read our review from the Toronto Int. Film Festival).
