- Producers John Wells and Don Murphy have optioned the rights to indie comic The Forgotten says The Hollywood Reporter. The comic centers on a man who, no matter what he does or whom he meets, is forgotten five minutes later. While it gives him great power and leeway as far as investigations and problem-solving, it leaves him incredibly alone. When the son of a long-lost friend is charged wrongly with murder, he uses his powers to get to the bottom of a conspiracy.

- Snakes on a Plane helmer David R. Ellis is in reports to direct the 3D sci-fi horror Humpty Dumpty reports Variety. The story follows a half-human, half-alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the Deep South. Billy Majestic penned the script and filming kicks off in September. Mark Ordesky is producing.

- Oliver Stone has officially signed a deal with 20th Century Fox to direct a sequel to the 1987 film Wall Street, according to Entertainment Weekly. Michael Douglas is also set to return as Gordon Gekko, a role which earned him an Academy Award. Shia LaBeouf is in talks to play a young wall street trader.

- The Michael Bay and McG fued escalates to schoolboy heights according to Men's Style. "Michael Bay has a big cock," McG says to Men's Style. "But I'd like to believe mine is bigger." McG smiles. "If he's up for it, we can both reveal ourselves on the Spartacus steps at Universal and put the question to rest."

- Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 21 Grams, The Aviator, Children of Men, The Number 23, and 30 Days of Night) is down to play Poseidon in Louis Leterrier's Clash of the Titans.

- Gremlins director Joe Dante tells Bloody Disgusting that while a third Gremlins movie or remake might happen someday, he won’t be involved.

- Universal Pictures’ Illumination Entertainment have announced that they are developing a 3D animated feature film based on the Ricky Gervais children’s book series Flanimals. Simpsons writer Matt Selman is working on the script based on the four volume series illustrated by Rob Steen. The books take readers to a “far, far away to a distant planet” inhabited by 50 species of “ugly and misshapen” creatures. Gervais will voice the lead character, a “pudgy, perspiring purple creature, goes on a mission to change the world.”

- J J Abrams explains to io9 why there is so much lens flare in his Star Trek reboot.

- Roger Donaldson ("The Bank Job") is set to direct a screen adaptation of Seymour Reit's novel The Day They Stole the Mona Lisa for Phoenix Pictures says Variety. The book centers on the theft of the world's most famous painting from the Louvre in 1911. It was missing for more than two years before an Italian carpenter named Vincent Perugia showed up with the painting in Florence. The film will center on the conman who masterminded the theft.
