Your pop culture cheat sheet

Here's what's going on in the world of entertainment today:

  • "The Hangover's" Zach Galifianakis is quickly becoming a hot property in Hollywood. Variety reports that he's looking at starring in the upcoming movie "Funny Story," a coming-of-age story, which sounds a lot like 1999's "Girl Interrupted."
  • "Spider-Man 4" has set a date: May 5, 2011, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sony announced that the movie will be simultaneously released in Imax theaters on that day.
  • Ron Howard has a new TV project at Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Previously, he brought "Arrested Development" to the network, which became a critical favorite, and Emmy winner. The show will be a workplace comedy taking place at the IRS, and it's sure to invite comparisons to "The Office" (not to mention the fact that the first episode's writer Brent Forrester, used to work on that show).
  • Horror classic "Night of the Living Dead" is the latest remake heading to theaters, and it will be in 3D as well, according to The Hollywood Reporter. However, it will not have the involvement of director George Romero.

    Janet Jackson's tribute to her brother was GREAT!!!. Janet should be responsible for controling Michael's legacy, image and likeness. I believe she is the best one for the task. She works hard and I believe she understands how important Michael's image was too him.

    My prayers continue to be will with your Ms. Jackson and your family. A mother's son, a sister's brother, a child father and a world ICon has left this world....the peace of GOD will remain.
