Spy Kids 3: Game Over:Variety reports that Sylvester Stallone himself will be playing the villain in the 3rd film in the Spy Kids franchise:
The action hero's character is a longtime nemesis of the sleuthing Cortez family who traps the young heroine Carmen (Alexa Vega) in a warped virtual-reality game. Vega, Antonio Banderas and Daryl Sabara will be returning to the third picture, as will helmer Robert Rodriguez. Co-star Carla Gugino, who played Banderas' wife, Ingrid Cortez, in the first two pics, is said to be in advanced negotiations to return for 3-D. I've always been a big fan of Sylvester Stallone, Rodriguez said. His larger-than-life persona will be a great addition to the SPY KIDS 3-D universe."

Gigli: We reported on Dark Horizons set reports the past 2 news articles we've done, and now DH has done it again. This time an actual crew member from the film has chimed in to set the record straight on certain rumors floating around about the re-filming:
"Re-filming was "requested" by the studio (Revolution) because the test screenings were not what they wanted - it didn't test well could be said. From what I have heard, the ending was too dark compared with the build up of the first two acts. Character chemistry and plot that ended up being filmed and edited contributed to a lighter, comedic, and more heartfelt communion than maybe anticipated. Act three or the ending became darker, and maybe too dark for those attending the test screenings (usually made up of a specific socio / economic / blah, blah blah audience)."

"Everything about this film is bigger than the first, there's about two to three times more action this time around," says producer Lloyd Levin, who co wrote the script for the new film with Kirk Petruccelli. "We're much more involved with visual effects with this movie, not just in quantity, but in the ambitions of what we want to accomplish with CG."
"The film opens with an elaborate action sequence that nearly kills Lara, which paves the way for a darker tone to this second film - a route the new PS2 game is also taking. But the movie and games are not working together (other than cross-promoting - a movie trailer will be on the PS2 game in February). Lara sets out to find Pandora's Box, and she must achieve a number of objectives before finding the box. Like the games, she'll go treasure hunting. Action sequences include a water chase on jet skis in Greece and a motorcycle race across the Great Wall of China."
Old Soldiers:Moviehole has gotten an interesting scoop on a new Christian Slater film:
"Christian Slater, Burt Reynolds and James Woods are in pre-production on a film called "Old Soldiers", to be directed by Andrzej Sekula. Timothy Dalton is also in talks for the film, set to play Slater's partner, who - with his sidekick- go head to head with a psychotic assassin. It's believed Gary Oldman was originally approached for the role. According to an insider, Slater plays an accountant who goes on holiday to Peurto Rico and gets mixed up in a private war between a bunch of ex mercenaries. It's believed that James Woods has been roped in for only a small role, at the request of the director, who he is good friends with. Director Sekula is perhaps best known for his role as cinematographer on smash hit "Pulp Fiction" (1994). He recently directed the film, "Hypercube : Cube 2". Filming on "Old Soldiers" is set to commence in March."
