? Gore Verbinski has dropped out of the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie (you know, the one where Russell Brand is supposed to play Jack Sparrow’s even more impossibly effete brother) to make a Bioshock movie. I don’t have the words to say how much I approve of this move. (Via IESB)

? Justin Marks is an enigma. Apparently, he wrote the best He-Man script ever possible (according to Latino Review), as well as the supposedly awesome but in-DC/Warner Bros-development-hell Green Arrow film Supermax. I didn’t realize he also wrote the script for Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li, which was very possibly written on a tenement wall in excrement. Now he’s going to script a Shadow of the Colossus movie, and I’m desperately worried about the He-Man movie. I’m feeling fragile right now, Hollywood. Do not fuck with me. (Via Kotaku)

? And speaking of Chun Li, Dragonball: Evolution, the Citizen Kane of live-action anime adaptations being released on April 10th, 2009, will not be screened for critics, just like the Kristen Kreuk/Chris Klein opus. Please, take a moment to pick up your top hats and monocles, because I’m sure they just rocketed off your head in shock. (Via io9)
