Tom Hanks As Walt Disney, Kid Cudi in TMNT Reboot and Tim Burton Returns with George Romero Spoof

The modern day everyman actor known as Tom Hanks may be set to step into some pretty famous shoes. Hanks is currently in talks to star as Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks, which offers a behind the scenes look at the making of Mary Poppins.

As the story goes, Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers refused to turn over the rights to her book to Disney, because they were partially based on her relationship with her late father. Of course, she eventually caved and the film went on to be a worldwide smash hit, but Travers hated the movie, especially the animated sequences.

While Emma Thompson is currently in talks to play Travers, what do you think of the prospects of Hanks playing Disney?

While it's still in the rumor stage, word has it that rapper/actor Kid Cudi might be starring in Michael Bay's rebooted Ninja Turtles film. While there's no word as to who he might play, he took to social media sites over the weekend, posting an odd cyborg-looking TMNT sketch (see below) on his Tumblr account. Then, in an effort to prevent another TMNT fan freak out, he hit up his Twitter account, saying, "To everyone with doubts & concerns about the new TMNT reboot, trust me, there is NOTHING to worry about. Trust. Everyone will be pleased!" and followed that with, "I was skeptical as well, but by no means is this movie gonna suck. Huge fans will be happy."

There's still a long way to go before this film hits theaters on Christmas 2013, but all this reassurance aside, who do you think Cudi is being sought to play? One of the Turtles, Splinter or maybe a villain?

Tim Burton is may be following his upcoming animated stop-motion feature Frankenweenie with another film using the same technique. He'll be teaming with a familiar face in writer Seth Grahame-Smith who wrote the script for Dark Shadows as well as penned the original book-turned-feature film, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which Burton produced.

The film is titled Night of the Living, a direct riff on George A. Romero's classic Night of the Living Dead, and continues a lineage of genre-bending spoofs which include Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and the aforementioned Vampire Hunter.

The plot is being kept under wraps, though in a recent interview with THR, Smith said, "… Night of the Living is an idea I have had around for years that I'm doing with Tim Burton. When we were shooting Dark Shadows last year I worked up the nerve to tell Tim about it because I always thought it would make a good movie. When I say what he had done with Frankenweenie and Corpse Bride, it always struck me as a great idea for that form. I'm writing it as Warner Bros. for him as a stop-motion monster movie."

But before Burton starts rolling cameras on Smith's script, he's loosely attached to direct a number of projects including an adaptation of board game Monsterpocalypse, a new adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and a Pinocchio adaptation that could potentially star Robert Downey Jr. as Gepetto.
