David O. Tussle

Russell directed two of my favorite movies, Three Kings, the most under-appreciated movie of 1999, and Flirting with Disaster, which is absolutely hilarious.

Feeling The Burn

The early reports are in and it looks like Burn After Reading will be crowned King of the Weekend, raking in $19.4 million.

Steve Rogers Movie In The Works?

MTV is reporting that actor Derek Luke got a little loosed lipped in an interview about Miracle at St. Anna and mentioned he heard Will Smith was offered the lead in a new Captain America movie.
