Someone took Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and re-wrote it so it was about the Star Wars prequels and then cut together a video, because that seems like a perfectly reasonable thing to do.  Said Freddy Mercury, “Jeez, those Star Wars prequels were worse than AIDs.” |via MilkandCookies|

Director of Speed 2 to direct a live-action Mulan.  Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha) has been cast in a live-action version of Mulan (yes, the same story they made the Disney story out of) from Jan De Bont, the director of Speed, Speed 2, and Tomb Raider.  If you can think of a weirder idea than that, Gary Busey will come to your house and bite into a raw onion. |THR|

RELEASE MY AGENT!  Liam Neeson has joined Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, and Brooklyn Decker in Peter Berg’s adaptation of the classic game, Battleship.  He’ll play Admiral Shane, Decker’s character’s father, the disapproving future father-in-law to the protagonist (he’s too much of a cowboy! he’s wild and can’t be trusted!).  I had the good fortune to read this script recently, and I can say without a doubt that it is one the the top 5 films about alien battleships that “jump” that I have ever read. |Deadline|

Hollywood Accounting strikes again. William Peter Blatty, who wrote the book and screenplay for Exorcist, is suing to get Warner Bros to let him inspect their books.  Shockingly, he claims WB is holding out on profits and wants to see the books to be sure.  For their part, WB just wishes he’d wait for the movie.  Haha, good one, Jay. |TMZ|
