The Random - Joan Jett, Jonah Hex, Magdalena, Repo Chick, Alex Cox, Romancing the Stone, In the Hand of Dante, Captain Blood

Kristen Stewart (Twilight, Into the Wild) is to play Joan Jett in a biopic about the Runaways.

Lexi Alexander (Punisher: War Zone) has apparantly been approached to direct the Jonah Hex film.

Gale Anne Hurd says that Magdalena (based on the Top Cow comic), starring Luke Goss (Hellboy 2, Blade 2) and Jenna Dewan, is like The Da Vinci Code meets Wanted. The Magdalena has the ability to see into the human heart, to show people the error of their ways and give them the choice to redeem their sins. There is only one in a generation, and she alone stands and takes arms against the evils of the world. Apart from the powers she is born with, the Magdalena wields the Spear of Destiny, the spear that pierced the side of Christ, as a holy and formidable weapon against the twisted and the evil.

Alex Cox starts work on his sequel to Repo Man next month, David Lynch is producing it. It will be called Repo Chick. Cool fact, Alex Cox went to my school and I sometimes see him drinking in a pub near me. I must approach him about this next time our paths cross.

The "inside source" that said George Miller was off of the Justice League film was wrong, and according to official representatives Miller is still on the film and the project is still being developed.

Romancing the Stone may be getting remade.

Jonny Depp's production company, Infinitum Nihil, has acquired the rights to Nick Tosches' novel "In the Hand of Dante" that was first published in 2002. The book is about Dante's "The Divine Comedy," and tells parallel storylines involving Dante in 14th-century Italy as he tries to complete the work, and a contemporary storyline involving Tosches, who is asked to authenticate what might be Dante's original manuscript.

Warner Brothers is remaking the 1935 swashbuckling pirate film Captain Blood that starred Errol Flynn, Olivia de Havilland and Basil Rathbone. Philip Noyce (Patriot Games) is down to direct it.
