Here's what's going on in the world of entertainment this morning:
- It's full speed ahead on "Mission Impossible 4." Variety reports that two writers have been hired to pen the screenplay.
- "So You Think You Can Dance" executive producer Nigel Lythgoe only wants Paula Abdul as an occasional guest judge, not full time, according to USA Today.
- More details have come out about the "Family Guy" abortion episode, which the Fox network has declined to air, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
- Is the much-anticipated "Spider-Man" Broadway musical in trouble? Variety reports that preparations for the show may have been halted due to funding issues, though a representative for the show says it will debut in February as planned.
- They may have canceled it, but NBC is none too happy with CBS rerunning episodes of "Medium" over the summer (prior to its fall debut on the network), according to Variety.
- In theatres today: "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra," "Julie and Julia," and "A Perfect Getaway."
