"Yeah, actually, there's a real good part for her in the 'Arrested Development' movie," Bateman says in an interview with MTV Movie News. Despite his recommendation, Aniston would have to prove herself to get the part as the 41-year-old actor says, "There's no offers on this one. She's gonna have to sing for her supper."

Moreover, Bateman suggests that it will not be easy to get Aniston for "Arrested Development" since she is a busy woman. "I don't know, we'll see if she's available. She's busy. She's pretty famous; I don't know if you've heard of her. She's pretty backed up. Hopefully the guy who's in charge will like her for that part because I'm going to suggest her," he adds.

Asked about the progress of the movie adaptation of TV series with the same title, Bateman cannot say much since he claims there is no significant update. "The truth is that there's really no significant update beyond ... what [creator] Mitch Hurwitz said a couple weeks ago, which was he's got half the script written. He's gotta finish the second half and then the studio's gotta love it and the cast's gotta love it and we all have to ... have time to do it," he states, before affirming "It's happening."

Beside Jason Bateman, other cast members of "Arrested Development" TV series such as , and are expected to reprise their roles in the feature film. The comedy revolves around the members of Bluth family who delve in materialism, selfishness, and their manipulative natures.

'X-Men' director: Hollywood killing the superhero movie -

Posted: 08 Aug 2010 11:39 AM PDT

Los Angeles Times

The clock is ticking on the superhero craze in Hollywood, according to Matthew Vaughn, the director now filming "X-Men: First Class" for Fox in London.

"It's been mined to death and in some cases the quality control is not what it's supposed to be," Vaughn said. "People are just going to get bored of it."

Vaughn, who produced, directed and co-wrote "Kick-Ass," says he pounced on the chance to make a film about the uncanny mutants from Marvel Comics because he expects the current boom in superhero cinema to fizzle out in the near future.

"I've always wanted to do a big-budget superhero film and I think we've kind of crossed the Rubicon with superhero films," Vaughn said. "I think (the opportunity to do one), it's only going to be there two or three more times."

"Then," he added, "the genre is going to be dead for a while because the audience has just been pummeled too much."

Next summer, "X-Men: First Class" will join "Captain America: The First Avenger," ''Thor" and "Green Lantern" in a parade of costumed heroes in big-budget films at the cineplex.

Vaughn said audience fatigue is already starting to set in. The subject material can't sustain the Hollywood trample, he said, and the inevitable box-office duds and derivative projects will mark the end of the gold rush by studios.

"It is a crowded room," Vaughn said "It's too crowded."

The 39-year-old filmmaker (who is married to German model Claudia Schiffer) is known for a candor that is rare in Hollywood circles.

He had been in talks to direct the third "X-Men" film but that didn't work out (he instead went off to make the underrated "Stardust") and the superhero project went to Brett Ratner ("Rush Hour"), who delivered "X-Men: The Last Stand," the 2006 film that became the biggest money-maker in the franchise despite far more sour reviews than the two previous films.

Vaughn didn't shy away from slagging on Ratner's film: "As it happens, I could have made something a hundred times better than the film that was eventually made," Vaughn told the Daily Telegraph. "It sounds arrogant, but I could have done something with far more emotion and heart."

Vaughn made his mark in movies as the producer of three Guy Ritchie films — "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," ''Snatch" and "Swept Away." He made his directorial debut with "Layer Cake" in 2004. "X-Men: First Class," starring James McAvoy as Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) and Michael Fassbender as Erik Lehnsherr (aka Magneto) is due in theaters in June 2011.

'Legendary' movie trailer starring WWE's John Cena (Video) -

Posted: 03 Aug 2010 09:03 PM PDT

The latest WWE John Cena news - A new 'Legendary' movie trailer featuring WWE Superstar John Cena debuted during the August 2, 2010 episode of Monday Night Raw. No, it doesn't appear John Cena is leaving Raw to promote the movie, but that could depend on the next big Pay-Per-View. This will be Cena's third starring role and this time includes some of Hollywood's better actors as compared to Cena's two previous films. Cena has previously starred in '12 Rounds' and 'The Marine' which may have entertained his fans, but were box office flops hated on by most movie critics. The 'Legendary' John Cena movie will see the WWE Superstar trying to make a comeback after two previous films flopped.

John Cena will be heading into Summerslam 2010 PPV soon, less than a month ahead of this newest film's debut. The new movie is a more dramatic role for Cena who has already turned in two previous action hero performances. In the 'Legendary' film, Cena potrays a one-time glorified wrestling champ named Mike Chetley, who turned down the wrong path, ending up in prison. His younger brother, Cal (Devon Graye), is looking to become a state champion on the wrestling team despite his 'beanpole' stature. He asks for his brother Mike's help in getting to where he needs to be although his mother notes he'll just be disappointed. The new movie stars John Cena, Danny Glover and Academy Award nominee Patricia Clarkson.

This is another attempt from the WWE and John Cena to hit that first big hit movie at the box office. They're banking on Cena once again. While the critics are yet to weigh in, other wrestlers have tried and been somewhat successful. The best example is probably Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson who has starred in numerous roles and done well at the box office. Johnson seens to be easily-separated from his WWE character on screen too. The new movie looks like it has potential in the same vein as those "feel good root for the underdog" fight movies like 'Karate Kid' or 'Rocky'. Will Cena be able to finally achieve box office success with the newest dramatic film?

The new film from WWE Studios, Inc. will hit select theaters on September 10th. Check out the 'Legendary' trailer below featuring John Cena via YouTube video. See more info about this new John Cena movie 'Legendary' at the official movie microsite.
