Gerard Butler (300) has bowed out of the Escape from New York remake, citing "creative differences".... Also per Variety, Spider-man 4 has tapped James Vanderbilt (Zodiac) to pen the script, which unlike No. 3 will feature two baddies, max.

Ridley and Tony Scott are producing Tell-Tale, a psychological thriller inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe short story, says the Reporter.... Saw IV baddie Tobin Bell is a good-guy sheriff in a big-screen adaptation of the graphic novel Bump.
Just when you thought he was out... they pull him back in. Over the course of three Saw films, Tobin Bell has created a compelling and brilliant criminal mastermind who's never at a loss for a wicked way to lead a ne'er-do-well to his or her death. Arriving in theaters on Oct. 26, just in time for Halloween, comes Saw IV, a rather "unexpected" additional follow-up for Bell's John Cramer... all things considered.

Horror-film buffs know him best as the Saw films' John "Jigsaw" Cramer, but Tobin Bell is the one facing a nightmare this time around in The Kill Point, an eight-hour miniseries premiering Sunday at 9 pm/ET on Spike TV.

"He said, 'We could try, but are you serious?' I said I was dead serious." As with past installments, Lions Gate will hold blood drives in conjunction with III's premiere.
