RevolutionSF Newsblast is brought to you by Mr. T insisting you be good to your mother.

Ryan Phillipe Still Not Anakin Skywalker

Ryan Phillipe was not Anakin Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels. Well, that is just great. Now he tells us.

I Believe Childhood's End Is Our Future

Someone is trying to make Arthur C. Clarke's 1950s novel Childhood's End into a movie. Director Kimberly Peirce says it's her next movie.

It's about aliens who look like the devil, but they're good devils. Hopefully this means work for Jon Lovitz or the Charlie Daniels Band.

Papa Smurf Unelectable

Papa Smurf is barred from running for office in Juneau, Wisconsin. (thanks to Ubalstecha) .)

It's obviously because he's an illegal immigrant. Build up the border! Keep smurfs out!

We WILL Write The Dune Movie

So there's a new Dune movie, and the director says he's looking for writers for a screenplay more like the book.

They could just use the book, but take out the parts where it bogs down in political mumbo-jumbo. Except thhat's the whole book.

Cylons Make Killings

Here's a nifty chart about all the deaths since the beginning of Battlestar Galactica.

All bleak dramas should be put into charts.

Cobra Commander Survived Lame Sitcom

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was the kid on Third Rock From The Sun. Now he's Cobra By God Commander.

He tells MTV, "I've got a good mask." Damn right.

He's in Stop-Loss, a slightly less realistic look at the trials of war. No ninjas anywhere. Ridiculous.

Joe Crowe is la-LA la la la la, LA la-la la la.
