'Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus' to become a movie

Almost 20 years after it was published, the best-selling relationship bible "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus" is being turned into a movie.

Written by John Gray, the 1992 book, which sold more than 50 million copies worldwide, outlined the differences between the sexes and offered tips for building better communication. According to Deadline.com, Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan have been tapped to turn Gray's work into a romantic comedy.

Elfont and Kaplan are no strangers to making movies about love lost and found. Their previous projects include the 2010 Amy Adams-Matthew Goode film "Leap Year" and the 2008 Patrick Dempsey-Michelle Monaghan movie "Made of Honor."

No actors are yet attached to the "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus" project.

Demi Moore is one of the most talked about stars at Sundance. She has two movies here, the Wall Street thriller "Margin Call" with Kevin Spacey and the dysfunctional family drama "Another Happy Day" co-starring Ellen Barkin and Kate Bosworth.

I sat down with 48-year old Demi to talk film, family, romance, and - as she nears 50 - whether she wants more kids.

Paul Reiser? Oh, he's at Sundance

If you've ever wondered about the whereabouts of Paul Reiser or Rutger Hauer, the mystery has been solved. They're both at Sundance.

Reiser was one of television's biggest (and highest-paid) stars with "Mad About You," which ran on NBC from 1992-1999, but since then, he's been writing music.

He appeared at the festival's ASCAP Music Cafe to perform original music he composed with vocalist Julia Fordham. It turns out that Reiser was a classically-trained pianist before he became a stand-up comedian and actor.

Best picture Oscar nominees get lego treatment

Get ready to see those best picture Oscar nominees as you've never seen them before — in Lego form.

Using just the colorful plastic building blocks and his imagination, artist Alex Eylar has reinterpreted scenes from each of the films vying for an Academy Award on February 27, reports Defamer.

There's a mini James Franco staring down at his severed arm, a tiny Natalie Portman looking terrified as her evil alter ego glares back in the mirror, and a frustrated Colin Firth attempting to give the king's speech.

"It was film that inspired the Lego hobby, in a way. If you watch enough good movies, you see scenes, shots, compositions, etc that you just have to try," says Eylar, who previously re-imagined "The Shining," "Psycho" and "Pulp Fiction" in Lego form. "Out of the scenes I've built so far, 'Inception' is my favorite. The rotating hallway was a neat challenge and a big visual payoff, and that's the kind of thing I aim for."

Kenneth Cole in-'vests' in Sundance

One of the hot apparel items at Sundance is sleeveless, (down) feather-light and comes courtesy of designer Kenneth Cole.

The retail magnate created a special down vest for festival volunteers, a hardy band who endure cold temperatures, long hours and the occasional obnoxious star, publicist or (heaven forbid) media person.

All 1,600 volunteers got a free vest in recognition of their efforts, and some celebrities did too– we noticed them on the shoulders of Susan Sarandon, Paul Giamatti, Rosie O'Donnell, Ed Helms and Danny Glover, to name a few. They're not exactly Sundance volunteers, but they did volunteer to be warmed by Cole's vest.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Charlie Sheen be fired?

"Showbiz Tonight" learned today that Charlie Sheen has checked out of a Los Angeles hospital after being rushed there Thursday – after reportedly partying with porn stars.

Charlie’s spokesperson says Sheen had severe abdominal pains due to a previously existing hernia condition, but will be back on the set of “Two and a Half Men” on Tuesday. But here’s the thing: how much can CBS take of Sheen’s headline-making drama? We’re asking in our "Showbiz" Flashpoint today: Should Sheen be fired from “Two and a Half Men”?

I don’t think he should be fired - Charlie seems to fare better when he’s working. His publicized problems always seem to happen when he’s on vacation or the show’s on hiatus. I hope Charlie gets the help he needs and truly wants to get well. But what do you think? Post below.
