STARSHIP DAVE GETS CAST
Eddie Murphy has some actors to play with on his upcoming film Starship Dave. Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union and Daily Show contributor Ed Helms are the three announced supporting players who will be joining Murphy and director Brian Robbins (who brought you Norbit, shudder) on the set of the sci-fi comedy.
 
LONDON TO BRIGHTON TO THE COTTAGE
"Fargo meets The Texas Chain Saw Massacre," starring Reece Shearsmith, Jennifer Ellison and Andy Serkis. That's how writer / director Paul Andrew Williams described his next film, The Cottage when Empire interviewed him this week. Only his second movie, the horror comedy was originally intended to be his first, before he got distracted and made the excellent London To Brighton. More from that conversation will appear at Empire Online soon.
 
SUNSHINE'S ON THE BRUSSELS INTERNATIONAL FANTASY FILM FESTIVAL
Danny Boyle's solar-themed sci-fi Sunshine has been chosen to open this year's Belgian extranavaganza of all things spacey, sciencey, and fictiony. Other films making an appearance include Lloyd Kaufman's Poultrygeist (surely a contender for best title of the year), Shadow Puppets and Uwe Boll's long-delayed opus In The Name Of The King. The festival kicks off from April 5, and runs for twelve days.
 
HARD TO TRILL
And finally, check out this footage of Steven Seagal and his band rocking London recently here.
