The Random - Emma Watson & Marilyn Manson, Bridget Jones, Avon Man, Green Hornet, Hack/Slash, Scream 4

The Sun have the rumour that Emma Watson (Harry Potter) is to play a princess in a film from rock star turned writer\director Marilyn Manson which will be based on the traditional story of Cinderella.

Working Title is developing a third installment in the Bridget Jones film series reports Variety.
The third Jones will see Zellweger reprise her role as a British publishing executive struggling to find love. The story will likely be based on author Helen Fielding's weekly newspaper columns from 2005 which has Bridget, now in her 40s, attempting to have a baby before it's too late.

20th Century Fox has acquired the comedy pitch Avon Man, from Hitch writer Kevin Bisch, and has attached Hugh Jackman to star.According to Variety, Jackman and Seed Prods. partner John Palermo will produce, along with Gary Foster at Krasnoff Foster Entertainment.The story follows men laid off from an auto dealership. One is reluctantly recruited into becoming an Avon salesman, and while the experience is initially emasculating, he uses his charm and good looks to become a top seller. The comedy takes on a Full Monty vibe when the car salesman sets out to save his financially strapped family and town by conscripting his buddies into the makeup business to win a regional contest.

Stephen Chow has bowed out of Sony's The Green Hornet, leaving the Columbia Pictures project to search for a new Kato, the sidekick of playboy-turned-vigilante Brit Reid, which is played by Seth Rogen. According to Variety, sources said Chow left on amicable terms and had several other projects he wanted to pursue that didn't fit with "Hornet's" production schedule. Michel Gondry is directing the film. Chow had initially signed on to direct the film as well, but then opted just to play Kato, the role Bruce Lee took in the original 1960s TV show.

The Hack/Slash comic-book film project is finally getting off the ground. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fredrik Bond has signed on to direct it. The film is based off the comic book created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Casselli, which revolves around Cassie Hack, who symbolizes the one woman that survives at the end of most horror films, but has become much more than that. Not only has Hack survived, but she has transformed into a hunter of the supernatural serial killers who plague the world. The script was written by Justin Marks and the film, now with a director firmly in place after many had come and gone, is eyeing a winter start date for production.

According to E! Online, both Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette will be returning for Scream 4. "We're going to be doing Scream 4," David Arquette told the site. "Kevin Williamson is writing the script at this moment, and hopefully Wes Craven is going to direct." Neve Campbell was said to turn down a chance to reprise her role in the sequel, but Arquette added, "I hope Neve does it. I really hope so."
