Straight from The Wrestler’s mouth:

“Right now, we’re not doing Iron Man 2.”

Read more HERE.

Marvel has been low balling some of the talent they’ve been approaching money-wise, probably on the theory that their movies are so high profile. Reports are that Samuel L. Jackson may not return as Nick Fury and Terrence Howard definitely isn’t coming back as Rhodey. The wait-and-see is in full effect.

Because Emily Blunt’s commitment to Twentieth Century Fox and the studio’s upcoming Gulliver’s Travels movie may prohibit her from costarring in Iron Man 2, Marvel is in discussions with other actresses, most significantly Scarlett Johansson, to take her place.

Blunt’s reps are still trying to make both projects work.

Warner Bros. and Fox have resolved their dispute over “Watchmen,” with the studios scheduled to present a settlement to Judge Gary Feess this morning and request that the case be dismissed.

Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but the deal is said to involve a sizable cash payment to Fox and a percentage of the film’s boxoffice grosses; Fox will not be a co-distributor on the film, nor will it co-own the “Watchmen” property, but it will share in revenue derived from it. The studios released a joint statement last night.

Read the statement and more HERE.

uhm yay!? You damn know where I’m going to be on March 6th.

A scheduled Tuesday court conference between Fox and Warner Bros. attorneys has been canceled, fueling talk that a settlement in the contentious “Watchmen” case is imminent.

Fox sued Warners last February, saying the Burbank-based studio infringed on its rights to make the comic book adaptation.

Fox is asking for upfront fees as well as a percentage of the back-end.

Read more HERE.

What’s interesting is that the article states that the judge involved has previously blocked a Warner Brothers movie for the same type of copyright snafu. The big difference here is the amount of money WB has invested in ‘WATCHMEN’. FOX is going to end up with a nice chunk of change…
