The Random - Stan Lee, Bonnie and Clyde, Green Hornet, Samson, Iron Man, Fully Automatic, Charlie's Angels 3, The Changeling, James Brown biopic

According to The Associated Press, shareholders of an ill-fated Stan Lee venture are seeking more than $750 million in profits from films based on Marvel comic characters such as "Spider-Man," "X-Men" and "Iron Man."

Hilary Duff and rising young thesp Kevin Zegers ("Dawn of the Dead," "Transamerica") will star in indie feature "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" for Cypress Moon Studios reports the trades.

The Seth Rogen-led new film based on "The Green Hornet" radio and 60's TV show property looks to be on the verge of collapse yet again reports HitFix.

Warner Bros. Pictures are planning a futuristic take on the classic Samson and Delilah story in "Samson" reports Variety. Scott Silver ("8 Mile") will write the script while Francis Lawrence ("I Am Legend") will direct.

Wayne Kramer ("The Cooler," "Crossing Over") is set to direct the buddy action caper "Fully Automatic" for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety. Marc Wolff's script follows two rookie cops out to make their mark and who team with a female former Delta Force operative to stop a mercenary who has stolen a cache of weapons.

Sacha Baron Cohen's controversial new comedy "Bruno" has been pushed back two months from May 15th to July 10th reports Variety. The move happened after Roland Emmerich's big-budget disaster epic "2012" was moved back to November from the July 10th date.

Drew Barrymore tells E! Online that she's up for a third "Charlie's Angels" movie. Barrymore's Flower Films producing partner Nancy Juvonen followed those comments up in an interview with Sci-Fi Wire where she indicated she's keen on the idea of a fourth 'Angel' and she has a 'Rihanna fixation'. Who'd direct? "I don't think we could do it without McG, and I think that the Angels all at least need to be there." She also likes the idea of bringing back the Thin Man (Crispin Glover).

Stracyznski’s script for the Clint Eastwood-helmed, Angelina Jolie period movie “Changeling” has been nominated for Best Original Screenplay at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, and the author announced today that he’ll have to pass up an appearance at the New York show in order to attend that awards ceremony.

Spike Lee has told MTV that he wants to use recordings of James Brown for the musical moments in his upcoming biopic of the late, great Godfather of Soul. Wesley Snipes, of whom Lee says “He’s my man”, will be left to just lip-sync and mimic the dance moves.
