FILM: Batman Sequel, Seyfried, Superman Sequel, Sherlock Holmes, and more

+ Russell Crowe is rumored to be in the running to play the Dr. Watson to Robert Downey Jr.'s Holmes or his nemesis Professor Moriarty in Guy Ritchie's upcoming Sherlock Holmes adaptation.

+ Mark Millar wants to create a trilogy, Lord of the Rings-esque Superman tale for the big screen, one installment per year.
Update: Kevin Spacey is going to return as Lex Luthor (which I think is a big mistake--start from scratch).

+ Steven King's Dark Tower novel will be getting a 7-film saga treatment by David Lindelof ("Lost").

+ Pussycat Dolls: The Musical, lol. Yes, the Pussycat Dolls plan to follow in the footsteps of the Spice Girls and S Club 7. They are reviewing scripts for their own autobiographical musical.

+ Idris Elba ("The Wire") wants to star and direct a Michael Jordan biopic.

+ Ghost Rider sequel: "The general idea was to take the character to Europe where he will work with the Catholic Church, deal with supernatural stuff on the continent and figureout a 'connection working with different religious figures.'"

+ Fanboys will finally be released in November 26.

+ Will Smith wants to star in The Last Pharaoh.

+ Michael Caine claims that Johnny Depp will play the Riddler and Phillip Seymour Hoffman will play Penguin.

+ Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia) has been cast as Channing Tatum's love interest in Nicholas Sparks' Dear John.
