Bret Easton Ellis, Rob Zombie
Writer Bret Easton Ellis and director Rob Zombie are teaming up to develop a Charles Manson project for Fox, Variety reports.
The project, currently envisioned as a limited series, would focus on the events connected to the Manson Family murders, in which Charles Manson convinced his cult followers to go on a killing spree in 1969 in Los Angeles. The events left seven dead, including Sharon Tate, who was eight and a half months pregnant with Roman Polanski's child.
Horror and sci-fi actor Richard Lynch has died at the age of 76, according to The Associated Press.
Lynch was found dead in his Palm Springs, Calif. home on Tuesday by his friend, actress Carol Vogel, Lynch's rep, Mike Baronas, told the AP. No cause of death was released.

David Caruso, CSI: Miami
CSI: Miami producer Barry O'Brien says he isn't worried one bit about the show's move to Sunday night.
"We're answering the call with essentially a relaunch of our entire series in every category," O'Brien tells TVGuide.com. "It's rarefied air that you breathe when you've been on the air for nine seasons. It's an amazing achievement, and we want to respond with appropriate gratitude and a sense of growth, both in terms of the characters and stylistically."

O'Brien's energy and excitement is evident as he starts discussing storylines for this season. The CSIs will investigate a crime with a literally disappearing murder weapon. One murder will be "witnessed" by a blind bystander.

We see a serious bad guy in Patrick Jane's future: Malcolm McDowell will guest-star on an upcoming episode of The Mentalist, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
McDowell, best known for playing nihilist Alex in A Clockwork Orange, will play the leader of a twisted religious cult in which Jane (Simon Baker) gets entangled. Series creator Bruno Heller describes the character as a "great heavy."
"He seems to have his sinister tentacles in every pie, which is really mixing horrible metaphors, but he's that kind of guy," Heller tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "We're very lucky to get someone as great as Malcolm McDowell to play that."
McDowell, who recently starred in Rob Zombie's two Halloween reboots, recurred on Heroes as the mysterious Linderman during the first three seasons and on Entourage as Ari Gold's former mentor/nemesis Terrence. Fun fact: He played the Ricardo Montalban role in the short-lived 1998 Fantasy Island reboot.
Also look for McDowell on the March 1 episode of CSI: Miami, which was directed by Zombie...

I remember coming out of the theater, in broad daylight, and looking over my shoulder the entire walk to the car.Rob Zombie: I totally understand that. I remember going to see Jaws as a kid, 1975, and afterwards we went to Denny's and I was literally in the bathroom freaked out thinking that a shark is going to crash through the w

Question Someone told me there was a real Jaws guy Were they messing with me Jake FlickChick Im guessing someone told you Quint the crusty old shark fisherman played by the late Robert Shaw in Jaws 1975 was based on a real person And he or she was right Its widely acknowledged that Peter Benchley modeled Quint on Brooklyn-born fisherman Frank Mundus nicknamed the Monster Man and some accounts claim that the seed from which Jaws later sprang was planted when Benchley read a newspaper article about Mundus hauling in a huge great white shark off the coast of Long Island in the early 1960sMundus says he took Benchley out on fishing trips and that Benchley was fascinated by the way he harpooned huge sharks with lines attached to barrels to track the shark while it ran to exhaustion But Benchley who died in 2006 at the age of 64 never named Mundus now in his early eighties as his inspiration In fact he was known to actively deny it a fact that
