After more than two years being abandoned in the hand of New Line Cinema, "Iron Man" finally could go home to Marvel, as the studio has taken back its film rights. "Right now we're concentrating on finding the right creative talent," Avi Arad, CEO of Marvel Studios, remarked. "It's not a part of our slate deal, but we can raise the money to do it if we choose to. We would also have no difficulty licensing it to another studio."

Concerning the film's distribution, the company would likely team up with Paramount Pictures while also prepares to start development from scratch, commissioning a new script and possibly attaching a director. Previously, the name of Nick Cassavetes had come up last year to helm the project, but it later appeared that he had never signed any deals. Even so, as quoted from Arad, Cassavetes is still one of the candidates to direct.

Leto as John Lennon's Killer

November 04, 2005 04:34:48 GMT

The assassination of the legendary John Lennon of The Beatles 25 years ago apparently inspired a Canadian-based film company, Peace Arch Entertainment, to make a film which explores the mind of his killer, Mark David Chapman. Entitled "Chapter 27", this independent feature is about to be helmed by a first-time director Jarrett Schaeffer who also wrote the script while has already been joined by Lindsay Lohan and Jared Leto. Lohan will portray a fictional fan of Lennon who also befriends Chapman, played by Leto, shortly before the awful incident. Meanwhile, the parts of Lennon and his wife, Yoko Ono, have not been cast yet.

Peace Arch Entertainment President, John Flock, explained that the title of this film is actually a reference to the 26 chapters in J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye", which prompted Chapman, as he cited, to do the murder. "It's a psychological study of (Chapman)," Flock said. "I wouldn't call it a sympathetic portrayal of him, but you do kind of get into Chapman's head." The production is slated to begin on January 16 in New York with the aim to be released by the late next year.

Hopefully, it is the good start for Federline to break through the music scene then.
