King Conan:TheArnoldFans has been petitioning for months now to keep John Milius on board as director for the next Conan flick, King Conan. Nearly 10,000 signatures later, TheArnoldFans seems to have made some progress:
An anonymous source tells TheArnoldFans that our petition to keep Milius and Schwarzenegger attached to King Conan is reaching high, past Crom and all the way up to The Matrix's Wachowski brothers. The Wachowskis, Andy and Larry, have been longtime supporters of Milius' King Conan project and were in long-ago talks to produce this bloody barbarian epic. However, last we reported, Andy and Larry felt they were just too busy and their presence from Conan should be skipped.
Apparently The Wachowskis had a long recent talk with John Milius and with the Wachowskis acknowledging TheArnoldFans.com petition and show of fan support - Warner Bros, The Wachowskis and Milius are all back on board!

Q: I wanted to know if Magneto gets to fly more in X-2? In the comic book Magneto has so many creative ways to use his powers. Will fans get to see Magneto make a protective force field? Do you wear a helmet in this film? Is it different than in the last film? I cannot wait to see you escape that plastic prison and kickin' some butt! Please tell me you get to do your fair share of the action???
A: OK here's the scoop -- Magneto wears his helmet again but it has been cunningly adapted so that it has a little more style than last time round. Same colour though. Magneto flies and spectacularly deals with a life-threatening technical problem -- but whether he does this from within the prison or elsewhere would spoil it for some.
Matt Damon: Matt Damon recently sat down with MTV.com to discuss his upcoming projects. During the interview he discussed doing a sequel to The Bourne Identity as well as his small cameo in the upcoming Kevin Smith flick, Jersey Girl:
The Bourne Identity 2:
"I never signed up for the second one when I signed up for the first one," Damon said earlier this week. "But I'd do it if they had a good script. I want to make [a sequel] if we all set out thinking we can definitely make it better than the first," he continued. "I'd say that's the only reason to make it. I wouldn't do it just to kind of milk the cash cow. If we could really pull it off and make it good, I'd do it, definitely."
"It's not a cameo like 'Jay and Silent Bob [Strike Back]' big laugher cameo," Damon said of his moment onscreen in "Jersey Girl," which is scheduled for a summer release. "Kevin likes to keep his family of people that he works with around. Jason Lee and I have the cameo. We're in a scene with Ben. Just like a really quick scene. It's really different," he continued. "Kevin claims he's going to lose all of his fans with this movie. It's a really kind of unabashedly romantic, really beautiful movie."
Superman: Brett Ratner has made his way online recently to debunk certain rumors floating around about the production:
"The whole hiccup here has been our search for Superman," he said in response to what may have caused rumors of his departure. And what about gossip that the budget had gone over $200 million and that Josh Hartnett was the top choice, but wouldn't sign a deal with two pre-negotiated sequels, which led him to schedule tests with Jude Law, Ashton Kutcher, Brendan Fraser?
"North of $200 million is a lie, we won't have a budget for three weeks," said Ratner, who acknowledged his top choices for Man of Steel were reluctant to make long-term pacts. "No star wants to sign that, but as much as I've told Jude and Josh my vision for the movie, I've warned them of the consequences of being Superman. They'll live this character for 10 years because I'm telling one story over three movies and plan to direct all three if the first is as successful as everyone suspects."
Thanks to Coming Soon! for the scoop.
