Chewbacca DogChewbacca Dog is Awesome

I was going to reserve this space for another movie news story, but then I discovered this awesome image of a Chewbacca Dog. The sash is a work of photoshop, unfortunately, but it totally makes the picture. Here’s hoping this dog is every bit as awesome as Chewbacca. (Oh, and whoever owns this dog needs to create a Chewbacca slash for him/her STAT!)
 
Kate Beckninsale Offered Total Recall Remake
 
Now that Colin Farrell is lined up to star in the Total Recall remake, it’s time to cast the lead females. The original 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi flick featured two feisty females. Lori (played by Sharon Stone) started out as Arnold’s happy housewife until it was revealed she wasn’t exactly playing for the home team. Deadline reports that role has been offered to Kate Beckinsale, who’s likely to sign on since her husband, Les Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard), is already directing.
 
Meanwhile, regarding the role of Melina (played by Rachel Ticotin), reports suggest actresses like Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson are interested. Are you looking forward to this remake?
 
Lindsay Lohan to Play Kim Gotti in ‘Gotti: Three Generations’
 
Though she’s still awaiting the outcome of her latest court battles, Lindsay Lohan has officially locked up her next role. She’s signed on to star opposite John Travolta in Gotti: Three Generations, which "centers on the relationship of a father who lived and died by the mob code and a son who chose to leave that world behind," according to Variety.
 
Lohan will play Kim Gotti, wife of John Gotti Jr. An actor hasn’t been chosen yet to play Gotti Jr. (Travolta will play Gotti senior). Meanwhile, the film’s director, Nick Cassavetes, recently dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, forcing the production to go in search of a new captain. In signing on for this film, Lohan also agreed to star in another movie called Mob Street, which is based on a screenplay from Chazz Palminteri. Looks like the girl’s Long Island roots are beginning to pay off for her, huh?
