After announcing details of a sixth "Rocky" movie earlier this month, Sylvester Stallone is once again furthering his plans to party like it's 1989. The jacked geriatric is attached to star in "Rambo IV," a $50 million sequel that will resurrect super soldier John Rambo for his first adventure since 1988. The film comes upon the Vietnam vet after years of living quietly in the U.S. When a young girl vanishes, Rambo once again takes justice into his own hands — which, as any fan knows, typically involves explosive-tipped arrows. The 59-year-old Stallone expects to shoot "Rambo IV" next spring in Mexico and the U.S. ...

Jack Black has spent his time in the "School of Rock," and now he's going to enjoy a "Holiday" vacation. The actor and Tenacious D frontman is set to join the Nancy Meyers ("Something's Gotta Give") romantic comedy, which also boasts the previously announced cast of Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet. The ensemble movie tells the story of two women, one American and one British, who become friends while bonding over their recent dumpings. If you're shocked at the thought of the slovenly Black playing Romeo to the curvaceous Diaz, don't be — rather than one of the dumpers, Black is cast as a film composer who chases after Winslet when her character settles in Los Angeles. A British actor is expected to soon fill the love interest role for Diaz's character in the film, which one-time Oscar nominee Meyers will write, direct and produce. ... Over the years, geeks have undoubtedly spent countless hours on comic book convention floors arguing about the victor of hypothetical epic battles between Optimus Prime and the Thing. Now they may finally get to witness one: 20th Century Fox has announced its plans to release "Fantastic Four 2" on July 4, 2007, putting the blockbuster up against the previously announced release date of Dreamworks' highly anticipated "Transformers" movie. The "Four" sequel is expected to reunite a cast including Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm, Chris Evans as Johnny Storm and Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm a.k.a. Thing. Little is known about the "Transformers" movie, with the exception that the film will be directed by Michael Bay, who has said it will take place largely on Earth. ...

Comparing his project to "A Beautiful Mind," film producer Steve Jones is putting together "You Don't Know Jack," a feature film based on the life of controversial euthanasia practitioner Dr. Jack Kevorkian. "He's basically been silenced by the government," Jones said of the 77-year-old Kevorkian, whom he visits in prison on a regular basis. "It's going to be a narrative feature about his life story ... we don't know anything about this guy; his life is so amazing." Jones and Kevorkian are hoping to land Oscar winner Ben Kingsley for the lead role in the film, which will be directed by "Wild Man Blues" documentarian Barbara Kopple and written by "Pollock" screenwriter Barbara Turner. Jones said the film will not only cover the well-documented battles between Kevorkian, his death machines and the government, but will also detail his youth, his little-known Grammy nomination (yes, you read that right) and his long history of pushing people's buttons. Based on Kevorkian's memoirs (which are expected to be published in 2006), Jones said the film is "moving methodically" along, but a script is expected to be finished by the end of the year. Jones also said the so-called "Dr. Death," who has reportedly participated in the deaths of more than 100 people, is eligible for a commutation of sentence that could see him go free later this year. ...

Claire Danes, best known recently for starring alongside the Governator in "Terminator 3," can currently be seen in the romantic comedy "Shopgirl." She wants to assure her action-minded fans, however, not to worry because like Arnold, she'll be back. "It's a cop thriller, and I'm partners with Richard Gere," she said of "The Flock," a bigger-budget film that casts her as a federal agent in training. "A director named Wai Keung Lau from Hong Kong [is] making it. We were supposed to shoot in New Orleans, but that's not possible now, so I think we are going to shoot in Baton Rouge." The film has Gere training Danes to be his replacement while they investigate a case related to sexual perversion. "It's pretty dark," Danes said. "But it's good, I think, and it's well-written." The movie begins filming next month, for a 2006 release. ... The fourth installment of the "Scary Movie" franchise is currently filming, and if one recently shot scene is any indication, it's going to be the weirdest one yet. Dr. Phil and Shaquille O'Neal have teamed up to make the oddest of couples in a "Saw" spoof that has the two of them waking up, groggy, to find themselves trapped in the infamous bathroom from the grisly film series. Their escape becomes contingent on Shaq's ability to shoot a free throw which, as any basketball fan knows all too well, doesn't come easy for the big guy. "Scary Movie 4" will arrive in theaters on April 14 and is expected to team up returning stars Anna Faris, Regina Hall, Carmen Electra and Chris Elliot with newcomers Molly Shannon and Craig Bierko. Other movies spoofed include "The Grudge," "War of the Worlds" and "The Village." ...

Tony Gilroy, the writer of Matt Damon's "Bourne" movies, is planning to make his directorial debut with a legal drama called "Michael Clayton," starring George Clooney as the titular lawyer. "It's actually based on a real court case — not directly based on it, but based on the idea," Clooney said of the film's origins. "There was a very specific court case, that we won't name to save the lawsuits, from a very famous prosecutor who at the time was a defense attorney. [A character] basically has information that he knows will destroy his client and hides it. I play one of the lawyers who works for that law firm, who gets that information and realizes I'm defending a group of people who are truly guilty." Clooney, currently starring in the journalism drama "Good Night, and Good Luck" (which he directed and co-wrote), added that pushing such buttons always gets him excited about a project. "Those are always the fun ones," he laughed, "when you realize you're in trouble." ... The Viking epic "Pathfinder," currently filming in Canada, has landed "Doom" star Karl Urban and "A Lot Like Love" actress Moon Bloodgood as the leads. The movie, about a Scandinavian boy raised by a Native American tribe, is due in theaters next year. ... Until recently, Lou Pucci had never even been to Hollywood. Now the 20-year-old rising star has two critically acclaimed, similar-sounding cult films to his credit ("Thumbsucker" and the upcoming "The Chumscrubber") and a Johnny Depp-like reputation for quirkiness that has landed him in "Southland Tales." The highly anticipated follow-up from "Donnie Darko" writer/director Richard Kelly, "Tales" is an apocalyptic sci-fi musical starring everybody from the Rock to John Larroquette, and it just keeps getting stranger. "In 'Southland Tales,' I'm a weird character," Pucci revealed. "He's a white kid who so wants to be black. He's like an Eminem character or something, but from Beverly Hills, who has way too much money, and all of a sudden his life is changed with what's going on in the script, and it's pretty cool. I think it's gonna be a weird, weird movie." Pucci added that he will not be among those who sing in the movie, which recently finished shooting and is due in theaters next year. ...

Currently shooting in Atlanta, the roller-skating hip-hop comedy produced by Will Smith finally has a title. Previously known as "The Untitled Chris Robinson Project," in reference to the famed video director making his feature debut with the film, it is now sporting the title "ATL." "Rubber Band Man" rapper T.I. will be making his acting debut in the film, starring alongside Mykelti Williamson and Outkast's Big Boi in the story of black youths growing up in the South. Music producer Dallas Austin is also producing the film (his first since "Drumline"), and Antwone Fisher co-wrote the script. "ATL" is due in theaters next year. ... After stealing scenes as foul-minded punks in straight-out comedies like "Soul Plane" and "Bad Santa," 17-year-old Ryan Pinkston's next movie will finally put his name above the title. "It's called 'Nothing but the Truth,' " the spiky-haired teen said of the film, which co-stars Carmen Electra and Craig Kilborn. "It should be coming out between February and May. It's about a kid who never really had any friends, always sheltered by his parents. One year, his last year of high school, he's like, 'I'm gonna do whatever it takes to be cool.' So I start lying about a bunch of things, and then I'm forced to live in those lies that I told. For a while, everything's great because I've got everything that I ever wanted. Then everything starts crumbling down and it just goes to sh--. It's a comedy per se, but there's a lot of dramatic moments, and you see, as it goes along, that it didn't turn out for the best." ...

Joaquin Phoenix's Johnny Cash biopic, "Walk the Line," arrives in theaters November 18, covering the early years of the legendary musician's life. One old friend of Cash's is already lobbying for a sequel since he didn't get to be in the first one. "It's earlier in his life," lamented musician/actor Kris Kristofferson. "I think it's '69 ... They certainly could [make a sequel], because I think it's really difficult making a film about somebody like Johnny Cash because he is so much larger than life." Kristofferson met Cash while sweeping floors in the '60s, and when asked who could play him during that period, he could only laugh. "Brad Pitt," he joked. "I did land a helicopter," he said of the legendary rock tale that had him putting a whirlybird down in Cash's backyard to call his attention to their eventual collaboration "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down." While Kristofferson would love to see that moment re-enacted in a movie, he admitted that it might require some dramatic license. "I brought him a song, [but] I'm not sure it was the same one [Cash] thought it was."
