Development is no longer Arrested

According to E Online, Michael Cera has finally signed on to appear in the long rumoured Arrested Development movie. Cera has been the only holdout among the show's cast members for unknown reasons, but it appears that he has finally agreed to appear in the film.

This is great news, as it means that we'll again be treated to the quasi-incestuous love story between George Michael and Maebe.

Oh, I miss that show. Meanwhile, enjoy this:

Beam Me Up, Scotty!........No, really!

Wow, this is kind of exciting. According to Fox News (not the best source, I know), scientists at the Joint Quantum Institute at the University of Maryland (how cool would it be to work there?) have successfully teleported information between two atoms over a distance of around a meter.

Click here to read the story, which contains an explanation on how they did it. I read it, and can honestly say there is no possible way I could ever summarize what is contained there. Seriously, when quantum physicists start talking mechanics, I basically just trust that what they're saying is the truth. They could be making it all up, as far as I know, and really, how would you prove them wrong?

So, basically, when am I going to be able to travel to Europe instantaneously? Get workin' on it, geeks, I got places to be.

Lantern, Green Lantern...

According to an article in Variety, Casino Royale director Martin Campbell is in talks to direct Warner Bros' adaptation of Green Lantern.

Campbell also directed Goldeneye, the Bond film that was Pierce Brosnan's debut in the role, and the film that reintroduced Bond to audiences after a lengthy absence. So that, combined with Casino Royale, is a plus. He also directed the two Zorro films that starred Antonio Banderas and featured Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Looking for the Mexican in that trio? Well, you mexican't, as there isn't one. Nope. Just a Spaniard, and two people from Wales in a mediocre action franchise. Hopkins stayed away from the second one, and therefore we were spared seeing him try to convince people he's Latino in some way.

So, some pluses and some minuses for sure. Still, it's got to be better than the planned Green Lantern spoof film that was to star Jack Black, right?
