Today's news you might've missed:
One of the most controversial reboots being developed in Hollywood appears to have hit a snag.
The Los Angeles Times reports that the proposed new "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" movie is looking for a new writer.
According to the paper's Hero Complex blog, the script "fell far short of expectations and, in the end, was rejected completely." (That script's writer, Whit Anderson, has not posted anything recent about the project on Twitter.)
As was mentioned in April, Justin Bieber is set to star opposite Mark Wahlberg in an as-yet-unnamed basketball drama.
But why did he cast the Biebs, who doesn’t have film acting experience? “Intuition,” Wahlberg tells MTV News.
Wahlberg, 40, made the amazing jump from fluffy hip-hop sensation to serious actor, and apparently he has faith that the 17-year-old entertainer can do the same.
According to TMZ, "American Idol” judge Steven Tyler might be engaged to longtime girlfriend Erin Brady.
The 63-year-old rocker and his 38-year-old lady love were photographed in Maui on Christmas, with Erin flaunting a rather large diamond solitaire. The bauble could be nothing at all, but TMZ cites sources who claim the pair are indeed engaged.
Tyler’s manager, Eric Sherman, tells CNN that he has “no comment.”
Great Scott! That's one expensive Delorean.
A car used in the 1990 sequel "Back to the Future Part III" has sold at an auction for $541,200, Hemmings.com reported. Although there are many replica Deloreans out there, this is the genuine article, according to movie and TV memorabilia auctioneers Profiles in History.
Viewers of Syfy's reality show "Hollywood Treasure" first got a glimpse of the Delorean sitting in collector Desi Dos Santos' garage.
"Avatar" and "Fast Five" don't share similar accolades, but there's one award both films hold, and that's being among the most pirated movies.
"Avatar" took the top spot on TorrentFreak's 2010 list of most heavily shared films, and this year "Fast Five" laid claim to the title.
According to the site, the film, which grossed $626 million worldwide, was downloaded 9.26 million times via BitTorrent. ("Avatar," meanwhile, was shared 16 million times in 2010.)
