by Dan Koelsch

The Buzz is a feature in which we round up the biggest and most popular film and television stories of the week. Why go through pages of blogs just to find out what everyone is talking about? We’ve got it all right here. Check out all the stories after the break.


Top Stories

Marvel and Sony Pictures finally have their Peter Parker for the anticipated Spider-Man franchise reboot, and his name is Andrew Garfield. The relatively unknown 26 year old actor will be starring in the upcoming The Social Network. Sony announced the casting yesterday, and while the choice was a surprise, many are saying it was a good call.





Scream 4 has seen a lot of news this week, with the latest not being good. First, we found out that actresses Lake Bell and Lauren Graham are both leaving the project. Now, as of today, there are rumors that there are even more problems with the sequel. The script keeps changing, and series mastermind Kevin Williamson may be off the project.


Also: Once again proving he has no soul, Michael Bay has gone back on his “belief” that 3D is just a gimmick, and is filming Transformers 3 with 3D cameras. Final Destination 5 has a new title, and it really makes you wonder what the people at New Line were thinking. FD5 is now 5nal Destination, which translates to “Fivenal Destination” and looks like “Anal Destination”, which is great porno title if anyone is interested. If Sharon Stone keeps working, soon we’ll have “F8al Attraction”.
