Hot on the heels of his success with “Slumdog Millionaire,” what will British director Danny Boyle do next? One possibility is returning to direct the third installment of his “28 Days Later” zombie virus films. Boyle directed the original (which was a fantastic return to form after a few missteps), but only executive produced “28 Weeks Later.” Boyle says he has an idea for a third film which he’d love to do.

Kathryn Bigelow’s widely praised Iraq War film, “The Hurt Locker” was bought during the Toronto Int. Film Festival by Summit films.

Another “Paris, Not France” story about the Paris Hilton documentary without nary a word about the supposed drama revolving the film (Paris’ people were allegedly trying to shut down the film).

As if the “The Dark Knight” buzz needed anymore help. Warner Bros. is planning a re-release of Christopher Nolan’s Batman film in January at the height of Oscar season.

Anyone who thinks Aaron Eckhart is going to get a supporting nod is as stupid as those that didn’t realize that Harvey Dent was dead at the end of the film. [Reuters]
The new version of “At the Movies” began last weekend, and the new hosts, Ben Lyons and Ben Mankiewicz, deserve two thumbs down. [Chicago Tribune]
More ‘Liberace’ news. Apparently, Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg (two of the six cum stains that wrote “Scary Movie”) had written a biopic about the famous musician, so we guess this is good news that these guys have one less project coming our way.
