Torso, the Bendis graphic novel, has had its rights lapse. Paramount let it go right after David Fincher who was attached, snagged thirteen Oscar noms for Benjamin Button. They would have had to buy the rights to keep them and they passed. There might be a new agreement struck between Paramount and Bendis and Marc Andreyko, the writers–because they have the rights now.

The Lost head burritos want to meet Captain Chesley Sullenberger, the guy who saved the passengers of US Airways Flight 1549 last week by executing a water landing when an Alfred Hitchcock movie clogged the plane’s engines. TV Squad’s got a better idea: give him a walk-on role. We concur.
Charles Schneer, producer of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts, died January 21st at age 88.
Star Trek Barbies, based on the new film, are coming April 20th. Just thought you should know/be warned. Source.
