Have you seen the movie Oldboy? It is a crazy, intense Korean film directed by Chan-Wook Park. Spielberg and Will Smith are set to remake it, BUT... they will be using the Japanese Manga, NOT the Chan-Wook Park Movie as their source material.
Don Cheadle is stepping in to replace Terrence Howard in Marvel Studios' Iron Man 2, says The Hollywood Reporter.
In the first film, Howard played Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes, Tony Stark/Iron Man's best friend and future armor-clad hero War Machine.
The trade says Marvel had no comment, but sources close to the deal said negotiations with Howard fell through over financial differences, among other reasons.
Marvel, which had wanted to work with Cheadle, then decided to take the role in another direction and approached the actor, who is shooting Antoine Fuqua's Brooklyn's Finest.
Justin Theroux is writing the screenplay for Iron Man 2, coming to theaters on May 7, 2010. Jon Favreau is returning as director, and Robert Downey Jr. is expected back as Stark/Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow also is expected to be back as Pepper Potts.
When Kanye West announced that his fourth album would be sung through Autotune, the Hip-Hop community ushered a heavy sigh, myself included. This was a questionable direction for an artist who many feel single handedly brought "real" Hip-Hop to the mainstream. "Autotune" is quickly becoming a bad word in the Rap game. A large portion of fans just don't subscribe to it. I included myself in this group of people initially.
After listening to the album, I must say that I'm impressed. I think Kanye has reached a point in his career where musically and emotionally he just can't make the same music he used to. Imagine if Kanye was the type of artist who found a dope sound and just stuck with it. If that was the case, Mr. West would still be speeding up soul records and he'd be as hot as Scott Storch. Kanye is a trend setter, and he has brought a new sound. It may not be as digestible as Gnarls Barkley's or Andre 3000's but its still dope Hip-Hop.
Imagine if Kanye was a brand new artist than no one had heard of. People would go crazy over this album, Autotune or not. Look at the success that T-Pain, Lil Wayne and even Ron Brownz are having. The Album is dope, it's just not the album people want from Yeezy.
Sometime you have to let an artist be an artist.
