Early buzz for The Dark Knight is extremely positive, with noted film critic Peter Travers calling Heath Ledger's performance as the Joker "mad-crazy-blazing brilliant" and "a Joker for the ages."

Robert Rodriguez (director of Sin City and Planet Terror) will produce a new version of Red Sonja to be directed by Douglas Aarniokoski (Highlander: Endgame) with Rose McGowan in the title role.

1981's Clash of the Titans is set to be remade by director Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2, The Incredible Hulk) from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark). The original film was most notable for Ray Harryhausen's stop motion visual effects, but no doubt the new film will rely on CGI, as it will be shot using the same digital backlot method as Sin City and 300.

Sticking with the themes of Greek mythology and digital backlots, Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) is attached to direct War of the Gods, a fantasy epic set in ancient Greece. There's reportedly a race on to see which of the two Greek mythological films will get made first.
