Which way will he go? Smith to choose between 'Men' and 'City' By PAMELA MCCLINTOCK, TATIANA SIEGEL Will Smith is pondering which ship he'll captain next. It's down to two choices: Sony's "Men in Black III" or 20th Century Fox's fantasy-adventure "The City That Sailed." Each project has particular appeal for the actor. Smith's production company Overbrook Films developed "City that Sailed" and brought it to Fox, which embraced the family property. Penned by Andrew Niccol, "City that Sailed" revolves around a New York street magician who is unhappily separated from his young daughter. The girl, who moves to London, finds magic candles that make her wishes comes true, with unintended consequences: The island of Manhattan separates from the continent and floats toward England, bringing her dad ever closer. There's no director yet on the project. The "Men in Black" franchise, of course, has been a box office goldmine for Smith, and Sony. First film, released in 1997, grossed $587.8 million worldwide. The 2002 sequel earned $441.8 million globally. It's been a while since Smith graced the bigscreen. His last film, Sony's drama "Seven Pounds," was released in D

Cameron was apparently referring to Beck's reaction to his 2007 documentary, "The Lost Tomb of Jesus," which casts doubt on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and makes the case that the ancient "Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries" belonged to Jesus' family. After blasting Beck, Cameron, surrounded by journalists inside a West Hollywood hillside mansion, seemed to reconsider: "I think, you know what, he may or may not be an asshole, but he certainly is dangerous, and I'd love to have a dialogue with him." What makes Beck dangerous, THR asked Cameron at the junket. "He's dangerous because his ideas are poiso

BATMAN 3 villains could come from INCEPTION? by Matt Holmes on March 24, 2010 From the man in the know on all things Batman on Film; I got a few emails from some movie business folks I know saying when it comes to BATMAN 3 casting, keep an eye on the cast of Chris Nolan’s upcoming film, INCEPTION. Interesting. Almost as soon as she was cast for “Inception”, I wrote a piece, now nearly a year old, hypothesizing that Marion Cotillard HAD to be the firm favourite for the role of Catwoman, if Chris Nolan decided to introduce Selina Kyle to his universe. “She has amazing femme fatale eyes. The kind that even Bruce Wayne who won’t want to fall for a woman again after losing Rachel, will be hopeless to resist…She has a feistyness about her but also the down to Earth, girly natural laugh that Selina has in everyday life…. Physically she is good (tall, in shape and flexible, a natural beauty) and well, we know she can act” Similarly, in my January posted “Batman 3″ wishlist, MY NO. 1 choice was to see the amazingly versatile British actor Tom Hardy land the role of The Riddler. He too is a cast member in “Inception”. “The Riddler i
