'Spider-Man' Villain James Franco the Next Jack Ryan?


August 19, 2008 05:01:56 GMT


Following report on director Sam Raimi being attached to the "Jack Ryan" reboot movie, an interesting tidbit on the casting has developed. It is now rumored that James Franco, the actor who played Peter Parker's best friend-turned enemy, Harry Osborn in "Spider-Man" series, has been considered by Raimi to take the lead role in the Tom Clancy's adaptation, "Untitled Jack Ryan Project".

By that, it means that Franco has been eyed to fill the shoes of CIA analyst Jack Ryan, who has been depicted previously by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Offering a contrast to the possible casting of the 30-year-old though, CHUD mentioned that Paramount Pictures and Raimi have clashed over the idea, especially since Paramount weren't so eager to hire Franco due to his box office modest records.

Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars Calling Virgin's Lawsuit as 'Insane'


August 19, 2008 04:29:05 GMT


30 Seconds to Mars' frontman Jared Leto has just shared his thought about $30-millions lawsuit that Virgin/EMI Records have filed against his band. He wrote in the group's official website that the lawsuit doesn't make any sense at all because the contract that he and his band mates have allegedly breached, is actually out of date.

Furthermore, Jared wrote that in California where they live and signed the deal, the law limits contract length for maximum seven years, and based on that, he said that their 1999 agreement is null and void because it supposed to have ended in 2006. However, Virgin are said to have ignored the law and instead of renewing it, they tried to make it outside the California law. "We had been signed to our record contract for 9 years. Basically, under California law, where we live and signed our deal, one cannot be bound to a contract for more than 7 years. This is widely known by all the record companies and has been for years. In fact, so aware of it are they that they desperately try to make deals outside of California whenever possible," he wrote.

Nas Calling Rap Peers to 'Get More Real'

August 18, 2008 09:46:48 GMT


Rapper Nas has recently shared his thought about how hip hop lyrics should sound. He says that though most rappers have a luxurious life, they should not highlight their jet-set life in their verses. In a statement, he says, "When you first get into the music business, you're excited to be there, you want to make records that everybody's loving. But, after you've got years in the game, you wanna give people the real side of you, show people some character."

Furthermore, Nas also says that the rappers should not forget about the unfortunates. According to him, they should write more songs focusing on the real life where many people out there experience harsh things. "Life is good; there's yachts, there's nice cars, there's movie roles. We overcame... but, in the middle of all that... you can't forget about the ones that didn't make it with us. Life is good, but that still doesn't erase all the horror out here," says Nas.
