20th Century Fox is moving forward with plans for “Money Never Sleeps“, a sequel to Oliver Stone’s 1987 feature “Wall Street” reports the trades.

Xinhua Media Entertainment and China Film Group will make a $30 million live-action feature based on the life of “Mulan” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Warner Bros. has picked up screen rights for Headshot, and has set scriptwriter Alessandro Camon to adapt the three-book graphic novel series by Alexis Nolent – an unlikely alliance between a cop and a hitman takes place after each watches his partner die. The new partners seek revenge and discover they have a shared enemy and much in common despite being on opposite sides of the law.

Blizzard and Legendary Pictures’ feature film adaptation of the Warcraft franchise isn’t likely to arrive next year as previously announced. Blizzard president Mike Morhaime tells Shack News that “I don’t know about the 2009 date, but it is still something we are very excited about.”

The Jim Henson Co. has acquired rights to The Happytime Murders, a comedic film noir murder mystery that Brian Henson will direct for the company’s Henson Alternative banner, which is meant to entertain adult audiences. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story was written by Todd Berger from a story by Dee Austin Robertson and Berger, and takes place in a world where humans and puppets co-exist, with the puppets viewed as second-class citizens. When the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show called “The Happytime Gang” begins to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet — with a drinking problem, no less — takes on the case.

At a recent presentation of footage from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”, director David Fincher indicated his “Rendezvous with Rama” feature looks to be dead.

We’ve been trying to do it but it’s probably not going to happen.”

1602. Louis Leterrier directing. Neil Gaiman on screen play. That’s the proposed line up, according to MTV, where Gaiman said, “I think it’s getting more and more likely as Marvel reclaims its film properties from all over the world. They’re sort of making their own movies and putting them out through Paramount. So they’re now in there with a chance.”
