The Morning Roundup: New Coen Bros. Trailer, Zack and Miri Trailer, Clone Wars Pics

Written by: Big Ross, CC2K Staff Writer

ImageThis morning we've got trailers for the Coen Bros. Burn after Reading and Kevin Smith's Zack and Miri Make a Porno, some pics from Star Wars The Clone Wars, not to mention lots of film and TV news!

Looks like the rumors over who will play Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit have already begun, with James McAvoy being the first actor rumored to be in contention.

The Sun reports that Harrison Ford doesn’t want to return to the Hans Solo character.  That’s the most pointless bit of non-news I’ve seen in a long time, for two reasons.  One, it’s Han Solo, you jackasses.  Two, George Lucas has repeatedly said he has no intention of making any more Star Wars films set after Episode VI, so it wouldn’t matter if he did want to slip into the pilot’s seat of the Falcon.  Oh, but Ford said he would consider reprising his role as Jack Ryan.  Yawn. 

We’ve got the red band trailer for the new Coen Bros. film Burn After Reading.  Enjoy!

Brett Ratner has expressed interest in adapting God of War into a live-action film?  Is there any chance this could be good?  Given his track record, I think not. 

In TV news the creator of Deadwood and John from Cincinnati is developing a new police drama called The Last of the Nine for HBO.

Whoa, in other TV news it looks like Garbage front-woman Shirley Manson will be joining the cast of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles as a regular next season. 

Looks like those rumors about replacements for Tobey Maguire in the upcoming Spider-Man sequels were just that, baseless rumors.

The hype machine for the upcoming Mike Myers comedy The Love Guru is operating at full steam with sites devoted to Pitka's shampoo (for your pubes!?), instructional yoga poses, and virtual Pitka bobbleheads.  Even with all that, I'm still not sure I want to see this movie. 

We’ve also got the first teaser trailer for Kevin Smith’s upcoming comedy Zack and Miri Make a Porno,

Finally ENI has added more images to their gallery of pics from the upcoming Star Wars The Clone Wars, and you can check out a few of them below.
