"Like 'Oceans Eleven,' it's that story of beating the house, only this story is true," said Michael Nathanson, chief operating officer and prexy of MGM Pictures. "Kevin will play the M.I.T. teacher who is this brilliant ringleader, and there are great parts for a young cast. We want to start production before the end of 2003."

IMAX Screenings: A breakthrough in remastering technology is making the release of IMAX versions of big blockbuster films more of a reality. According Britain'sGuardian, we might be seeing release of the latest harry Potter movie as well as Lord of The Rings movies on the gigantic 7 story tall screens:
Although Imax bosses yesterday refused to divulge which film would be first to be seen at the same time as it was released in conventional cinemas, there is strong speculation it could be the third instalment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Imax's joint chief executive Brad Wechsler said the company planned to release one remastered classic "like Lawrence of Arabia, and two big event-type pictures like Harry Potter III and Lord of the Rings on the same day as the normal release next year".
Imax technicians in Toronto have done tests on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and the first Lord of the Rings film. Its director, Peter Jackson, said: "This is the way I dreamt my movie would be shown."
Mr Wechsler said if the third part of the Rings were shown, it would not be cut, unlike Apollo 13, which lost nearly a fifth of its length in the transition to the very big screen. Star Wars was also cut, apparently because Imax projector booths cannot handle films longer than two hours. "We will probably have to put in an intermission for the public to recover, it might be a little overwhelming for them. Imax are not like normal cinemas, it's far more full-on," Mr Wechsler said.

Ghostbusters 3 & Analyze That 3: Recently IGN Filmforce talked to Analyze That director, Harold Ramis, and star Billy Crystal, about the upcoming film. During the interview, Filmforce asked Ramis about the progress of a 3rd Ghostbusters movie, and the possibility of a 3rd outing for the Analyze That characters. Here's what he had to say:
"We're going to combine them," said Ramis. Acknowledging actor Robert De Niro on his right, he explained, "Bob thinks he's seeing ghosts so Billy calls the Ghostbusters."
"Who am I'm gonna call?" said Crystal as if he wouldn't call anyone else.
"And these three very aging fat guys come in in really tight jumpsuits," said Ramis.
"Pantsbusters," said Crystal.
"I don't think it's going to happen," said Ramis.
"We played around with it, but this one I can't see."
Note the new issue of Scr(i)pt magazine (Nov/Dec, 2002). Within its pages is an interview with Harold Ramis by journalist David Cohen. Of Ghostbusters 3, Ramis told Cohen: "I wrote a draft though, we had a pretty good idea Ghostbusters go to hell. But the deal couldn't be made."
"It's sad that the economics became so overwhelming," said Cohen.
"It is," said Ramis. "We thought we'd introduce new Ghostbusters and appear as the mentors of the new Ghostbusters or not appear in it at all. Bill Murray wouldn't appear in it. I think he didn't want to see a sequel made, so he became kind of obstructionist about it."
"It's hard to do it without him," said Cohen.
"Well, it could have been three new Ghostbusters without any of us," said Ramis, "and the story Dan (Aykroyd) and I were evolving could have worked."
That's the word for now...we'll keep you posted.
