Matt Damon spills the beans about 'Ocean's Twelve.'

Matt Damon, out promoting “The Bourne Supremacy,” has spilled some details about “Ocean’s Twelve.” “The basic premise is that there’s this incredible thief, this master thief in Europe and he turns us in to Terry Benedict, Andy Garcia, in order to get us in trouble,” he said. ” ‘Cause [the thief] wants to challenge us, to prove to us that he really is the greatest thief in the world. And now Terry Benedict is either going to send us to jail, or worse, unless we can get him all his money back. And in the meantime we have to unseat this master thief from Europe.” …

“Fantastic Four” has found its fourth. Jessica Alba has signed on to play Susan Storm, joining Chris Evans (Johnny Storm/ The Human Torch), Ioan Gruffudd (Reed Richards/ Mr. Fantastic) and Michael Chiklis (Benjamin Grimm/ The Thing) to round out the cast. Alba reportedly beat out Rachel McAdams and Keri Russell to play Storm, who is known in comic lore for her blond hair and blue eyes. Alba has already become a blonde for her role as stripper Nancy Callahan in Robert Rodriguez‘s “Sin City.” …

Sharon Stone has revealed that a long-awaited sequel to her classic erotic thriller “Basic Instinct” is in the early stages of development. Meanwhile, Stone has been exploring another interest: songwriting. “I’ve been writing for movies and I’ve written for a couple of really cool artists,” she said. “I don’t [want to reveal their names because] I don’t think it’s good luck until they’re really out. But I went to Nashville and had some sessions and then I’ve met someone who I’m working with a ton now, just a terrific composer and we’re really having a blast. It’s all a learning process for me. And just something I never imagined would happen to me.” …

“Charlie’s Angels” director and “The O.C.” executive producer McG has left his post as director of the next installment of “Superman” over budget, casting and location issues with Warner Bros., which wanted to shoot in Australia. “When I flew to New York to scout, I became enamored with our greatest American city,” McG said in a statement. “It was clear to me that this was Metropolis. As a filmmaker, I felt it was inappropriate to try to capture the heart of America on another continent. I look at Superman as a character that embodies all that is beautiful about America.” McG’s departure marks what seems like an endless string of setbacks. Tim Burton and Brett Ratner had also been attached to direct at different times, but later dropped out. …

Drew Barrymore has signed on to star in a remake of “Fever Pitch,” a British film based on a book by Nick Hornby (“High Fidelity,” “About a Boy”) about his own life and his obsession with soccer.

The Farrelly brothers are in talks to direct before starting work on “The Three Stooges.” … Kurt Russell has agreed to star in “Dreamer,” a fact-based drama about a horse trainer and his son who rescue a horse with a broken leg. Shooting will start in September in Louisiana. …

Mena Suvari, currently guest starring on “Six Feet Under,” has joined the cast of an untitled comedy starring Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Costner and Mark Ruffalo. Ted Griffin, who wrote “Matchstick Men” and “Ocean’s Eleven,” is directing from his own script, the plot of which centers around a wedding. … An eighth installment of the “Police Academy” movies is in the works, according to series creator Paul Maslansky, who told reporters the success of “Starsky & Hutch” and other revivals inspired him to bring back the series. Maslansky said much of the original cast is interested and he will also bring in new characters. The last movie, “Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow,” hit theaters in 1994. …

Singer/songwriter Tyler Hilton has been cast as Elvis Presley in the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line,” which stars Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. Hilton’s debut album, The Tracks Of, is due in August. … After he directs the Outkast movie for HBO, video director Bryan Barber will make another movie musical, this time with Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, who will write the music. Little is known about the movie other than the fact that it will be a hip-hop update of a classic story. …
