Per the Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures has acquired the screen rights to The Shadow, to at least be produced, if not directed, by Sam Raimi. The pulp hero, born from a 1931 radio series, last was played on film by Alec Baldwin.... Sandra Bullock is One of the Guys in a comedy about a real "guy's gal" who labors to embrace her feminine side, and apparently never rented Miss Congeniality.... The Longest Yard director Peter Segal will lens a comedy about the very first Olympics, penned by Craig and Jeff Cox (of Will Ferrell's forthcoming Blades of Glory).... Dimension Films has acquired North American rights to Storm Warning, a Deliverance-esque Aussie horror pic about a husband and wife on a fishing trip that goes terribly wrong. Because so many husband-wife fishing trips go wonderfully.SIDE NOTE: Speaking of movies, check out my fresh Trivial Matt'rs entry to see how I think the new Rocky film serves as a finish to the series.
All the King's Men, starring Sean Penn, Jude Law, Kate Winslet and many other bold-faced names has been given a new September 22 release date. The political-drama remake was originally pegged to hit theaters last December.... Singer Alicia Keys will play Scarlett Johansson's best friend in The Nanny Diaries.... Peter Segal (The Longest Yard, 50 First Dates) will direct Shazam!, a big-screen take on Captain Marvel, the superhero I was for Halloween many, many years ago.
