‘Bad Boy 3’ in the works?

Columbia Pictures is developing a third installment of the high-octane “Bad Boys” franchise, tapping Peter Craig to pen the screenplay.

The hope is to have a script that would reunite director Michael Bay, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. At this point, with the project in the early stages, none has a deal to return.

The “Boys” movies feature Smith and Lawrence as Miami detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, caught up in cases involving car chases and explosions.

The first “Boys,” released in 1995, helped launch Bay as a director and Smith as an action star even though it was not a fire-stamped blockbuster — it grossed $66 million domestically and $141 million worldwide.

The sequel, released in 2003 when Bay and Smith’s stars had risen, grossed $138 million domestically and $273 million worldwide.

All parties have expressed a willingness to return if a story can be hammered out. One potential hurdle, however, would be the costly deals with the players.

Craig, repped by CAA and Management 360, co-wrote “The Town,” which Ben Affleck is directing for Warner Bros. and which shoots in Boston next month. He is adapting anime “Cowboy Bebop” for 20th Century Fox and Keanu Reeves.

WTF: Uncle Ben bumped up to CEO?

Are we really progressing in this country, when a racist character such as Uncle Ben is still being pushed to the American public when it has been revealed many times that these mammy characters were phony and meant to degrade Black Americans. I guess not by the likes of this add below:

via SlateWell, look who’s boss. After some 60 years of loyal service, Uncle Ben is being elevated from fictional cook to fictional CEO of the fictional Uncle Ben’s Inc. Mars, which owns the brand, is about to spend $20 million on a campaign to spread the news. Visitors to “Ben’s office” can take a tour of his virtual premises, a wood-paneled suite with a Mac and a leather chair. But what’s amazing about this guy isn’t his fake promotion—it’s that he still has a job at all. Uncle Ben is a rare survivor in the once-crowded world of racist spokescharacters. Most of his contemporaries were fired a long time ago.

CNN has picked up our story from yesterday on Steven Anderson, the Arizona pastor who prayed for Barack Obama’s death the day before one of his parishioners, who attended the sermon, brought an AR-15 rifle to an Obama event.

And they’ve advanced the story a bit: CNN analyst Mike Brooks reports that the Secret Service has interviewed Anderson, who told TPMmuckraker yesterday: “To be honest with you, I have prayed for Obama to die. I’m not the only one, I’m just the only one with the spine to say it.”

Here’s the relevant bit of the segment, in which Rich Sanchez interviews Brooks and former Secret Service agent Scott Alswang:

A graphic printed on each shoe features 23 of the most iconic numbers, or moments, including his average points per game (30.12), Rookie of the Year award (1985) and jersey numbers (23/45), to name a few.

Obama Nation: People Who Have Tatooed ‘President Obama’ On Their Bodies

Great work finding all of these pics. Of course the white guy with the Obama tat has to be Glenn Beck.

via Veto Corleone

Obama is great and wonderful. He brings rainbows and unicorns and puppy dogs and cotton candy. As the first African-American president, he is certainly a symbol of a high point in American history, but is any politician worth getting a tattoo? What if Obama suddenly grows out a Van Dyke goatee and turns into evil doppelganger Obama? What if he starts doing things like pushing old women down stairs and running over kittens in a monster truck on the White House lawn? What will be of your Obama tattoo at that point?

Regardless, there are apparently plenty of people who think that putting Obama’s face on their skin for life is a good idea. We guess that’s cool, but why was there never a scramble for Gerald Ford tattoos? Gerald Ford was hip. Or not. Okay, enough rambling… here are 15 Awful Obama Tattoos, which shouldn’t be confused for 15 Tattoos That Will Keep You From Getting Laid or 10 Ill-Advised Video Game Tattoos

15. Obama’s looking… a little lumpy. Is that what you want? A lumpy president?

14. Great spot to put a tattoo of the 44th President. Every time you lower your arm, Obama gets a face full of Speed Stick.

13. This is the secret Obama Cult Tattoo. When you join the super secret Obama Cult, they tattoo the inside of your lower lip and instead of a secret handshake. You pull down your lower lip and recite Obama’s 2004 DNC Convention keynote speech word for word. It’s true, look it up.

New KFC Opens (Instead of Fried Chicken, They Sell Marijuana)

I think a mash-up with half medical marijuana, half fried chicken spot is heaven on earth.

via LA Weekly

There has been an abandoned Kentucky Fried Chicken in Palms, slumping sadly these past few months on the corner of Exposition Blvd. and Hughes Ave. What, locals wondered, would replace it? A new burger joint? A Peruvian rotisserie chicken stand? It turns out that the KFC has been replaced by… a KFC. In this instance, though, the KFC stands for “Kind For Cures”, and while they do sell things that are edible, you can’t buy them, or even ask about them, without a prescription.

There have been marijuana dispensaries popping up all over Southern California of late, but this one is slightly different. Rather than tearing the whole thing down and starting from scratch, the proprietors of this alternative KFC decided to incorporate the design of the previous tenants. They have removed the official Kentucky Fried Chicken logo, but the rest of the building remains mostly intact.

So do they plan on selling hot biscuits with THC butter? Can you order your Pineapple Express by the bucket? Do they offer family meals? “No comment.” Hm. I suppose we’ll have to take that as a no.

Kind For Cures, 3516 Hughes Ave, Palms, (310) 836-5463

Megan Fox snatches Catwoman role in Batman 3?

Fanboys mouths are watering at this possibility of Megan in Batman 3. Here is the unofficial report:

MEGAN FOX has signed up to play Catwoman in the next Batman movie.

And I have a strong feline she is the purrfect choice for the part – and thanks to a spot of computer wizardry here’s how she might look.

Megan will need to get into practice with her talcum powder application.

Slipping into the famous PVC catsuit always looked like a tricky business to me.

And I would like to be the first person to offer my services as a wardrobe assistant, should she need one.

The Transformers stunner follows in the pawprints of MICHELLE PFEIFFER and HALLE BERRY.

But Megan, who has a slightly darker edge than her two predecessors, will be brilliant as Selina Kyle.

All the other stars who have reinvented the Batman films are back on board – CHRISTIAN BALE, MICHAEL CAINE and director CHRISTOPHER NOLAN.

Shooting starts next year but the film is not expected to be released until 2011.
