Week News Roundup

By Chase Kahn

Played golf all day yesterday without a sliver of energy left. I missed a few noteworthy stories, so here we go:

David Goyer penning Ghost Rider 2 (Variety)
So apparently, any Marvel property that has been sold to a studio must be in use, or Marvel, and therefore, Disney, can re-claim the property. This apparently happened to Iron Man, which New Line did nothing with and therefore Marvel turned it into one of the hottest superhero properties going.

Magnolia Acquires Luca Guadagnino's I Am Love (The Wrap)
This Italian drama is said to be reminiscent of Ludo Vischonti and stars Tilda Swinton amongst an almost exclusive Italian cast. It received high marks from its showings in Venice and Toronto earlier this month.

David Fincher's The Social Network is Officially Cast (The Film Nest)
Yes, it's a movie based on 'Facebook', but I've heard that Aaron Sorkin's script, which focuses on the triumvirate of co-founders behind the social networking site, is a seathing study of greed and corruption along the lines of John Huston's The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake and Andrew Garfield will star in The Social Network, expecting to release next year.
