Stuff You Need to Know: When Harrison Ford Signs Onto Your Film, Okay, It’s Probably Happening

Enders Game cover

Trying to get you pop culture news at least once a week, because doing it more often than that would be excessive and time consuming for everyone involved. One post catches you up to speed on the important bits and you can then breeze through the rest of your day enlightened. Huzzah.

  • I’m now willing to admit that Ender’s Game is probably happening. As I may have mentioned before, the last time it was supposed to kick off, it was Haley Joel Osment as Ender. Now the previously might-be Harrison Ford is definitely on board to play Hyram Graff. Hailee Steinfeld is also locked to play Petra while Abigail Breslin is on tap to play Valentine. Source: Variety.
  • The Bugle, the hilarious satirical podcast hosted by John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman that I recently recommended, has gotten evicted by current host The Times Online (I notice the link on their HelloBuglers Twitter page has been redirected to the Times’ front page as well). They report that it will have a new home somewhere in 2012, so that’s good news out of the ashes and madness.

    Top 10 Things We’d Like to See Liam Neeson Fight Next

    Liam Neeson, Badass

    Liam Neeson is badass. This might be news to some, but not to me. I remember Rob Roy, where, among other things, he and Tim Roth engaged in one of the best on-screen swordfights of all time. If only the bad guys in Taken had gotten the memo. Regardless, some time in the past few years Neeson has become the go-to badass when you need something fought. He’s fought his own memory, he’s fought Batman, he’s even fought George Lucas’ lack of directorial skill. He even helped make The A-Team worth watching. And now the question of “What if we combined Taken and The Edge?” appears to have been answered with the new trailer for The Grey, in which Neeson is fighting wolves and wilderness.

    Kris Kristofferson

    Kris Kristofferson is such a badass that Randall Flagg wouldn't think to mess with him.

    Movie news sites give you a lot of information. But it is a lot of information. Don’t you just wish you could find out what you actually need to know and leave the rest alone? Never fear, we are here. Well, I mean, it’s us…so fear a little. Anyway, subscribe to the Stuff feed or get this as a free email newsletter. Anyway you want it, that’s the way you need it.

  • It’s official. Ghost Brothers of Darkland County is back on the schedule at the Alliance here in Atlanta. Why should you care? It’s a musical with a score by John Mellencamp and book by Stephen King. T-Bone Burnett is musical director. Apparently a three-CD version of the musical has already been recorded with a full cast, which included Kris Kristofferson, Elvis Costello, Roseanne Cash, Mellencamp, King, Sheryl Crow, Neko Case and Joe Frazier (yes, the boxer). I want this album five minutes ago. Show dates? April 4-May 13, 2012. No, you can’t stay on my couch. Source.
