Random Movie Stuff - 3/20/12

- Seth Rogen (50/50) and Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man) will star in a period cop comedy. They'll play "the original buddy cops", the first ever pairing of a black cop and white cop in the late 1940's.

- Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat is going to be turned into a 3-D animated movie. (Let's all pretend that live-action Mike Myers 2003 fiasco never happened.)

- Sony Pictures is already planning on a sequel to 21 Jump Street. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are both expected to return.

- Josh Trank (Chronicle) will direct The Red Star, based on the graphic novel about an alternate-reality Russia where magic and technology collide. Trank's name has also been in the mix to helm either the Fantastic Four reboot, or the Spider-Man spinoff Venom.

- No details yet, but SNL co-stars Chevy Chase & Dan Aykroyd (Spies Like Us) are going to reteam for a movie.

I find myself shocked there's not a CG-animated movie of Pippi Longstocking in the works.

And here's the Dark Shadows trailer, starring Johnny Depp and directed by Tim Burton.
