Tom Cruise Sued for a Billion Dollars Over ‘Ghost Protocol’

mission-impossible-ghost-protocol-teaser.jpg

As will happen when you climb to the top with special electro-stick gloves, everyone starts wanting a piece of what you got. Case in point: Tom Cruise, Paramount Pictures, J.J. Abrams, and others are being jointly sued for a billion dollars in a claim that says the plot of Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol was stolen. The plaintiff, Tim McLanahan, is representing himself and has prepared a ten-page lawsuit arguing that M:I4 was ripped off of Head On, a script he wrote in 1998, long before it was ever known as a topical headache remedy. The suit doesn’t go into specifics about exactly what elements were stolen, but it does contain a lot of spelling and grammatical errors. It also makes a claim that “age discrimination” comes into play; McLanahan’s age isn’t stated, but Cruise is of course perpetually 36, so their age rift grows every day.

Anyway, Suri can breathe easy about her inheritance, as this probably won’t go far. As Deadline notes, beyond its myriad errors, the suit also makes illogical connections that aren’t likely to hold up in court. For one: McLanahan argues that he gave his 1998 script to the agency William Morris, and “shortly afterwards, five top agents from William Morris broke away to form a new agency called ‘Creative Artist Agency’ (CAA) in 1975.” Whoops, time!

TV Stuff: Maya Rudolph’s Variety Show, ‘Ghost’ Becoming a Series, and More

Read on! Unless you don’t own a television, in which case shut up.

- Now that NBC has given up on their plans to remake Up All Night in the vision of something horrible, the network is reportedly finally giving Maya Rudolph that variety show she was developing. Time will tell if “variety” just means an assortment of impressions where diva songstresses act goofy.

- Paramount Television is reportedly teaming with utterly unremarkable Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman to develop a series based on the 1990 Patrick Swayze-Demi Moore film Ghost. Because every time you watch Ghost, you’re always thinking, “But what other pottery could they sensually create on a weekly basis!?”

- Undiscouraged by constant mockery, Syfy is developing yet another original project. Now the network is reportedly developing an adaptation of Beowulf in which, assumedly, Grendel is now some kind of carnivore-based weather formation.

- Man lives in the sunlit world of what he believes to be reality. But… there is, unseen by most, an underworld, a place that is reportedly remaking Tales from the Darkside for The CW.

Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance — $22M

Crank co-directors Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor helm this sequel to 2007′s Ghost Rider that finds Johnny Blaze (Nicolas Cage) summoning his infernal alter ego to help rescue a ten-year-old boy from the Devil incarnate. Tracked to a secluded area of Eastern Europe and approached by a clandestine sect of the church with word that the apocalypse is at hand, Johnny realizes that his only hope for breaking the curse of the Ghost Rider is to prevent the Devil (Ciaran Hinds) from taking possession of a young boy… [more]

Nicolas Cage Would Do ‘Wicker Man’ Sequel as Japanese Ghost in a Bear Costume

nicolas-cage-bear-suit-wicker-man.jpg

Perhaps hearing his own tortured cries echoing from the Hundred Acre Wood, perhaps responding to user philblakeman’s webchat question “is there any character you’d like to revisit?”, Nicolas Cage today spent a few moments reflecting back on 2006, thinking of that time his head was covered in bees during The Wicker Man remake. And you know what? Surprisingly, now that Nicolas Cage thinks about it, he actually wouldn’t mind putting the ol’ bear suit back on and punching a few more women in the face with a sequel to that movie. If the right Japanese director came around with the right idea for Nicolas Cage being a screaming ghost, that is.

Mused Cage:

I would like to hook up with one of the great Japanese filmmakers, like the master that made Ringu, and I would like to take The Wicker Man to Japan, except this time he’s a ghost.

Well, firstly, of course you would be a ghost, Nicolas Cage. Give us some credit here; we know what happens after Nicolas Cage’s spirit leaves his charred body. Secondly, nice spoiler, Nicolas Cage. Maybe not everyone knows that Nicolas Cage gets burned alive in a giant wicker sculpture, okay?

But back to the matter at hand, could Nicolas Cage be serious about being up for a spectral sequel to the critically-lambasted Wicker Man? My instinct says no, but my instinct also did not anticipate roles as a motorcyclist skeleton or John Travolta with Nicolas Cage’s face stitched on, so hey, maybe it could happen. I sure hope so. Maybe that will bring back our goddamn honey.
