Michael Jackson #1 Top-Earning Dead Celebrities

The Dead Shall Rise When They Hear Dollar Signs
Michael Jackson never graced Forbes’ annual Celebrity 100 list during his life. In death, the King of Pop earned more in the past year than any star on that list, apart from Oprah Winfrey.

Jackson not only took the No.1 spot on our 10th annual ranking of the Top-Earning Dead Celebrities, with gross earnings of $275 million, he out-earned the other 12 deceased stars on the list combined. Still more impressive: His estate's 12-month haul was greater than the pooled earnings of this year’s two biggest living acts, U2 and AC/DC. Jackson’s posthumous earnings come from his stake in the lucrative Sony/ATV catalog, the hit Sony ( SNE - news - people ) film This Is It and renewed fan interest in music, videos and all things Michael Jackson.

“The death of Michael Jackson really put a focus on--crassly, quite frankly--what someone’s worth when they’re deceased,” says David Reeder, vice president of Corbis' GreenLight, which manages the per…

James Bond 23 Due In 2012

James Bond 23 Due In Theaters In 2012
MGM has big plans for 007 now that the studio is back on its feet. In a report stemming from yesterday's news that MGM had filed for bankruptcy, rejecting Lionsgate's bid for a takeover, Bloomberg confirms that MGM is fully commited to shooting James Bond 23 in the next two years, and that it will be ready for release in November of 2012.

The studio will retain fifty percent of the rights to the Bond franchise, with MGM
set to release a new 007 adventure every other year starting with James Bond 23's release in 2012. An equal partner will pay all of the production costs on the first few movies released, and then the later Bond sequels will be wholly owned and funded by MGM itself.

There is no word on whether or not Daniel Craig will reprise his role as 007 in James Bond 23. At this time, the actor is committed to filming all three installments of the Millennium Trilogy, starting with the currently in production The Girl with the Dragon …

Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch Trailer #2

Sucker Punch Trailer Number 2
We finally get our hands on a second trailer for the upcoming film from Zack Snyder (300 & Watchmen), Sucker Punch. From what I see in the trailer I am alittle confused to what the film will stand for. "Just Let go"

Sucker Punch” is an epic action fantasy that takes us into the vivid imagination of a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary.

Tron: Legacy The Costumes & Merchandise

Tron: Legacy The Costumes & High End Merchandise
This article will appear in the first issue of the re-launched Hollywood Reporter, which appears on newsstands Wednesday. Subscribers can read the full version here.

In 1982, Tron not only became one of the first movies to make extensive use of computer graphics, but the high-concept film also put those special effects front and center on the film’s costumes. The Dec. 17 release of Tron: Legacy — starring Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund and the return on Jeff Bridges as computer genius Kevin Flynn, who has mysteriously disappeared through a portal into another world — is hoping to accomplish the same thing.

But being slavish to the original wasn’t something costume designer Michael Wilkinson and co-costume designer Christine Bieselin Clark (who also worked together on 300 and Watchmen) thought made sense when starting this project more than two years ago.

“Tron was this cutting-edge film, and we wanted to be reverent to what the fans l…

Sally Field In Talks To Play Aunt May In Spider-Man Reboot

Sally Field In Talks To Play Aunt May
THR is reporting that Sally Field is in talks to star as Aunt May in the upcoming Marc Webb's Spider-Man reboot. The actress is in early talks to play Peter Parker’s beloved aunt in the new Spider-Man movie.

The news comes on the heels of Martin Sheen in final negotiations to play Uncle Ben in the relaunch of the movie franchise.

Aunt May is a key supporting character in Peter Parker/Spider-Man’s life, as she is the only family the young hero has.

In the early comics, she was portrayed as a frail lady who worried over her nephew, trying to set him up with the neighbor’s daughter, and frequently got sick, adding to Peter's personal woes.

In addition to Sheen, the new movie, which begins shooting in December, has Andrew Garfield as Peter, Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the movie’s unnamed villain.

Field’s last major studio role was in 2003’s Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde, although she did star in the 200…

Will Ferrell, Denzel Washington Hollywood's Overpayed Actors For 2010

Ferrell, Washington And Murphy On The List
For the second straight year, Will Ferrell is the most overpaid actor in the world, and not far behind are a slew of other male comedic actors.

According to Forbes magazine, Ferrell's movies earned only $3.35 for each $1 the star was paid. Shia LaBeouf, on the other hand, is paid $1 for every $81 his movies earned, so he's the actor determined by Forbes to give the most boxoffice bang for his salary buck.

In making its determination, Forbes looked at the three most recent movies of each actor on its Celebrity 100 list. It added up boxoffice, DVD and television revenue for the three films, factored in production budgets and came up with an operating income for each of them that it then compared to each star's compensation.

In Ferrell's case, Land of the Lost, Step Brothers and Semi-Pro were used, while The Other Guys, which performed better than the other three, was released after the June 1 cutoff date for this year's Forb…

Martin Sheen is in final negotiations to play Uncle Ben in Columbia’s new Spider-man movie.

In Spider-Man lore, Uncle Ben, along with Aunt May, is responsible for bringing up Peter Parker. His death at the hands of a burglar is the key event that turns Parker, who until then was using his newfound super-powers for personal gain, to step onto the path of heroism.

Sheen will join a cast that includes Andrew Garfield as Parker, Emma Stone as love interest Gwen Stacy and Rhys Ifans as the movie’s unnamed villain.

The movie, under the direction of Marc Webb, is heading for a December start.

Thundercats Animated Series Update

Thundercats Animated Series Update
Back in June, one of the biggest stories to hit the site didn't involve a movie starring Ryan Reynolds, Robert Downey Jr., or any characters from the Marvel or DC universes. It was a story about the Thundercats, believe it or not, and their upcoming return to television in a new animated series.

When we first brought you the news about the new "Thundercats" animated series debuting on Cartoon Network in 2011, details were scarce. All we we had was a promotional image of Lion-O and the promise of a "21st century reimagining" of the classic '80s cartoon.

That's why I made sure to pick the brain of "Thundercats" producer Michael Jelenic when he dropped by Splash Page HQ during New York Comic Con last month.

"It's funny because I've been working on a lot of Batman cartoons the last couple years, and I tell people I have a new Batman cartoon coming out and they're like, 'Cool...'" laug…

Under the Skin Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett Johansson To Play A Sexy Alien
Scarlett Johansson as the perfect woman? A perfect alien woman?

That is what FilmNation is selling at AFM, launching Under the Skin, a sci-fi drama from Sexy Beast writer-director Jonathan Glazer.

“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality.”
But, wait, there’s more. “She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”

Glazer co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell and is eying a production late spring 2011.

In a statement, FilmNation CEO Glen Basner said, “We’re so very excited to be working on t…

Jon Favreau Calls 2011 Box Office A Blood Bath

Jon Favreau Calls 2011 Box Office A Blood Bath
Jon Favreau has seen Hollywood’s future — at least as far as summer 2011 – and it looks a lot like “Saving Private Ryan.” “It’s Omaha Beach, it’s going to be a bloodbath,” the filmmaker said of next year’s crush of big special-effects films, remakes and sequels. “There’s never been a summer like this next summer. It’s going to be bloody [for filmmakers and the studios]. As we were sticking thumb tacks in a calendar we realized that this is going to be looked back upon as Omaha Beach.”

Favreau, the director of the “Iron Man“ films, is well known to moviegoers as an on-screen funny guy in movies like “Couples Retreat” or the sublime “Swingers“ (which he also wrote), but he wasn’t joking a bit when he said Hollywood is going to be in “a pit fight” next summer because of a glut of high-profile releases that will translate to some big-name disappointments just because of the numbers game. Favreau has a sci-fi horse in the race, of course, wi…

Ghost Rider 2 Budget Slashed

Why Even Make The Movie?
With a production deadline looming, Sony has partnered with Hyde Park Entertainment as a cofinancier on the 3D “Ghost Rider 2,” with Nicolas Cage in the lead - at a much leaner budget.

The first film in 2007 set up Cage as stunt motorcyclist Johnny Blaze, who gives up his soul to be come a vigilante. That film had an estimated budget of $110 million, and grossed $115 million domestically, and a total of $229 million worldwide.

This time Ashok Armitraj’s Hyde Park Entertainment has stepped in to cofinance the project because Sony has so much capital tied up in 'SpiderMan' and 'Men in Black 3' and 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.'

The budget has been cut from $135 million to a leaner $75 million, according to a knowledgeable insider.

(Even Nic Cage had to take a serious haircut to reprise Johnny Blaze, down from his $12 million fee to what one knowledgeable insider said was $7 million. )

Sony had no initial comment.

Michael Jackson's Thriller Movie

Michael Jackson's Thriller To Become A Film
Michael Jackson, who reportedly earned $275 million posthumously over the past year for his estate, isn't slowing down anytime soon.  GK Films is in active negotiations to acquire a package for a film that is being fashioned around his groundbreaking hit song Thriller. The film, which has been quietly shopped over the past several weeks by Real Effects Entertainment, has Kenny Ortega attached to direct, and The Hangover scribe Jeremy Garelick to write the screenplay.

While GK is in the driver's seat, I'm told that Fox 2000, Mandate/Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are all in the mix on what will shape up as a pricey rights deal, but which will turn out to be a film budgeted at under $50 million. Plot is being kept under wraps but I understand it has to do with the song's folklore, involving Vincent Price and the town he grew up in. All of this deal making is subject to a deal being completed with Jackson's estate, bu…
