#501. Movie Buzz

1. Jake Kasdan tells Bad Teacher how to behave
Director Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story) will take on the comedy Bad Teacher next, The Hollywood Reporter says.Year One scripters Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg wrote the screenplay, about a foul-mouthed teacher who is dumped by her, shall we say, older male patron.She sets her sights on a male colleague and goes all out to woo him in her own inimitable way, putting her in direct conflict with her school's model teacher.No casting details were announced.

2. Videogame fans despair - no Castlevania movie for you
If you were counting on watching vampire hunter Simon Belmont battle his way through hordes of bloodsuckers in the long-promised Castlevania movie, you'll be better off playing the videogame instead.Word from Bloody-Disgusting.com is that the Paul W.S. Anderson-scripted project is officially cancelled.The most recent director attached to the project was Sylvain White (Stomp the Yard).The movie was to have focused on the origins of Dracula - at least, the version of Dracula in the "Castlevaniaverse" - and how the Belmont clan came to be humanity's last hope against his campaign of evil.

3. Disney eyes another remake
Disney is planning to remake another one of its family features - this time, it's the 1986 Flight of the Navigator, about a young boy who gets taken on a wild ride by aliens.The original movie had the 12-year-old being abducted in 1978 and reappearing eight years later, still the same age and with no memory of what happened to him.NASA finds a link between the lad and a mysterious downed spacecraft, which the boy then escapes in.Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs) is writing the remake, which was announced in various news sites recently.The plan has drawn fire from the original film's fans who fear that another beloved childhood memory will be destroyed. Given the track record of most remakes, their worries are justified.

4. Planned Buffy movie sounds buggy to us
Would you make a Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie without any connection to Angel, Spike, Willow or Xander? Say, someone already did that - back in 1992. But the director of that first big-screen Buffy, Fran Rubel Kuzui, has apparently held on to the rights to the character and is now developing another movie.According to The Hollywood Reporter, this one is thus far being developed without the services of Joss Whedon, who wrote the original and then developed the middling property into a cult hit on TV (the series ran for seven seasons from 1997-2004).Although Whedon's involvement has not been completely ruled out, the filmmakers have not contacted him about it yet.The trade newspaper said the proposed film is being referred to as a remake and/or relaunch, but is not touted as a sequel to either the original movie or the TV series.

5. WWI drama wins Palme d'Or at Cannes
The black-and-white World War I drama White Ribbon picked up the coveted Palme d'Or award at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday.The movie, set in a German village on the eve of the war, was directed by Michael Haneke who had previously won the Director award at Cannes for his film Cache in 2005.Variety reported that the festival's Grand Prix award went to A Prophet from France, a prison drama which had been widely tipped to win a prize from the time it was screened early at this year's festival.The only award won by a US film was the acting nod for 52-year-old Christoph Waltz as Colonel Landa, the Nazi "Jew hunter" in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, a movie which has received mixed reviews so far.
