The popular medieval role-playing game created in North America will have its story told in the popular Japanese form of Japanese animation, as BioWare, EA, and Funimation Entertainment have announced that a Dragon Age anime will be released next year.

While EA has expanded the universes of its IPs with animated movies before (Dead Space: Downfall served as a precursor to the original game) Dragon Age will be the first EA property to be re-imagined in anime form. Dragon Age will be the first movie to be created as part of FUNimation's initiative to co-produce movies with major media companies. The movie began production last month and should be coming out on DVD (and we'll assume, Blu-ray) in 2011.

The original Dragon Age released in November of last year, with its first major retail expansion (Awakenings) coming out back in March. Do you think EA will have another major Dragon Age release to coincide with the anime release?

You knew this was coming. Even if Dirk Benedict hadn't gotten the ball rolling last month on the A-Team movie bashing, a negative response was to be expected from Mr. T. Unlike Benedict (and Dwight Schultz), the mohawked '80s icon had already refused to appear in the film for a cameo role, claiming it wouldn't be right. But also unlike the first slam, this one comes from someone who has seen the movie. T's major complaint, quoted by WENN, is that "it's nothing like the show we turned out every week." How the adaptation is different especially bothers him:

"People die in the film and there's plenty of sex," he said. "But when we did it no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore."

Did you know the guy had such an issue with content like this? Despite always looking like a bad ass, Mr. T is a born-again Christian and has always represented good values and been a good influence on kids through TV appearances and cereal boxes. The increase of sex and violence should be more of a draw to others, though. Mr. T does acknowledge the movie will "do big business at the box office" but admitted that it was just too graphic for him. Unfortunately, he didn't use his trademark phrase and say that he pities the fool who'll go see it.

Mr. T starred on The A-Team series as Bosco "B.A." Baracus, a role being played on the big screen by UFC fighter Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. The movie adaptation opens this Friday. Are you any less likely to see it now that Mr. T does not endorse it?

Fans of writer JanetEvanovich have been wishing for ages that her best selling series about a bounty hunter named Stephanie Plum would be made into a movie. I am counted as one of those fans. Well now the wait is over!! One For The Money is in development as we speak and will be starring Katherine Heigl (Knocked Up, 27 Dresses, The Ugly Truth) as our heroine Stephanie Plum! Honestly I had hoped for Sandra Bullock but I think Heigl will do an equally great job! Personally I would love to see Betty White play Grandma Mazur!! She would be perfect!

No details have been made available as to the actual release date, but the fact that its being made by Lionsgate is enough to make me jump for joy! Well that and seeing it post on the Janet Evanovich Facebook page. (Thanks to my totally awesome wife for pointing it out to me!) Oh yeah. This is going to rock!

For some reason they have chosen to shoot the film in Pittsburgh instead of the books setting of Trenton, New Jersey, but hey I cant complain too much.

What??! You don't know who Stephanie Plum is? Where have you been? Janet Evanovich is on book 16 in the series which is titled Sizzling Sixteen and will be available on June 22, 2010. Information on the series and more can be found on her website. So what are you waiting for? Grandma Mazur does pack heat in her purse and you wouldnt want her coming to your House for a visit..Well I would but I am a fan of her granddaughter.

Ohio tornado kills 7, wrecks cop cars, graduation - Detroit News

Millbury, Ohio -- A mother and her young son and the father of the valedictorian from a high school now in ruins were among seven people killed in a weekend tornado that was Ohio's most powerful in eight years, authorities and relatives said Monday.

The tornado was part of a line of storms that tore through the Midwest over the weekend, destroying dozens of homes and ripping off a movie-theater roof in Illinois and siding at a Michigan nuclear plant, forcing a shutdown.

But the worst destruction was in northwest Ohio, where the tornado flattened an emergency services building and left a strip up to 300 yards wide and 10 miles long littered with wrecked vehicles, splintered wood and family possessions.

Crews were working Monday morning to put up power lines to restore service to an estimated 1,000 customers. But the most devastated neighborhoods were quiet compared with Sunday, when hundreds of volunteers cleaned up debris.

Jim Mazey, 35, spent about 16 hours Sunday searching for belongings from a friend's house that was destroyed. They found a baby blanket, birth certificates and a family cat that was still alive.

Six people were in the home's living room and trying to get to the basement when the tornado came through. Five were injured, two of them seriously.

"I look at this and can't believe they lived. The Lord was looking out for them," Mazey said Monday when he came back to search for more.

The tornado victims included Mary Walters, 36, and her 4-year-old son, Hayden, who were sleeping when the tornado struck late Saturday, said Mary's sister, Amy Sigler. Only the foundation remains where their home once stood.

Walters' death came a day after she took part in a youth sleepover at a church, said her sister, Sigler. More than anything, Walters was a Christian and a mother, Sigler said Monday.

"Her life revolved around her relationship with Jesus," she said.

Ted Kranz, 46, whose daughter was to address her high school class as valedictorian, also died, the Wood County coroner's office said Monday.

Bailey Bowman, 21, of Walbridge and Kathleen Hammitt, 56, of Wauseon also died, the coroner's office said. The circumstances of their deaths were not immediately available. The identities of the two others who died have yet to be released.

The tornado rated a 3 on a 0-5 scale for measuring tornadoes, with 5 being the most severe, according to preliminary information from the National Weather Service. Category 3 tornadoes have gusts of 136-165 mph.

It was Ohio's most powerful tornado since one with winds topping 200 mph that hit in 2002 about 75 miles northwest of Saturday's storm, said Kirk Lombardy, a meteorologist at the weather service office in Cleveland. The 2002 tornado was part of a storm system killed five people statewide.

At least 50 homes were destroyed over the weekend and another 50 severely damaged, as well as six commercial buildings. The storm fell over an area of farm fields and light industry, narrowly missing the heavily populated suburbs on the southern edge of Toledo. Damage could top $100 million, Wood County emergency management director Brad Gilbert said Monday.

The tornado turned a township police and emergency medical services building into a mishmash of 2-by-4 framing and pink insulation. At least six police vehicles -- half the township's fleet -- were destroyed, and one car was tossed into the spot where the building once stood.

"It's a war zone," Lake Township Police Chief Mark Hummer said.

The tornado ripped the roof and back wall off Lake High School's gymnasium hours before the graduation ceremony was supposed to begin there. The ceremony was rescheduled for Tuesday at a Toledo community college.

In southeastern Michigan, severe storms and high winds ripped siding off a building at the Fermi 2 nuclear plant, causing it to shut down automatically, said Dan Smith, the public information officer for Monroe County.

DTE Energy, which owns the plant on the shore of Lake Erie, is investigating the damage, and there's no estimate when the plant will operate again, spokesman Guy Cerullo said.

Eleven people with minor injuries were taken to hospitals from Dundee, Mich., where a tornado touched down with winds of about 130 mph.

Tornadoes also were reported in Illinois. More than a dozen people were injured in Dwight, where about 40 mobile homes and 10 other homes were destroyed, Illinois Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Patti Thompson said.

The roof of a movie theater collapsed in Elmwood, about 30 miles west of Peoria. About 200 people who had been inside were evacuated to the basement and no one was hurt, state Trooper Dustin Pierce said.

The storms left a trail of damaged homes in northern Indiana and three tornadoes touched down, but no one was injured. In eastern Iowa, buildings were damaged and one person was hurt when a tornado touched down in Maquoketa.

The storm front, weakened as it headed east, knocked down trees and power lines across New York and produced high winds in Pennsylvania. An Ohio man died after his camper overturned on him during a strong storm in northwestern Pennsylvania, state police said.
