RIP John Barry
John Barry, the man behind the James Bond theme has died of a heart attack in New York.

Henry Cavill Is Superman
Of all the heavyweight actors vying it out to don the man of steel's cape in Zack Synders Superman reboot news has broken that a lesser known British actor has actually got the gig. Yoink!

Henry Cavill star of Tristan & Isolde and Stardust has beaten off stiff competition to win the role of Supes. Bit of a gamble, Bryan Singer cast a relatively unknown in the last movie and wasn't really well received by audiences and critics alike.

Me too, it's not one of the big names that was bounded around the project a few months back, but Ben Walker (Flags Of Our Fathers, X-Men: First Class) will become Abe and face off against the hordes of the undead.

Evil Dead 4
Robert Tapert, long time producer and friend of Sam Raimi, has announced this week that both him and Raimi are looking at a potential script for either an Evil Dead 4 or reboot of the original.

This has been muted for some time now and Raimi always seems to tantalise fans with potential progress on expanding the Evil Dead trilogy but we've never had anything as concrete as this from Tapert.
