Yesterday, we reported that Bay apologized for Armageddon, saying that he didn't have enough time to do it right. But today the director has released a statement to the contrary:

Gus Van Sant is gunning to take a seat in the director's chair on the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

He's so eager to win the job, in fact, that he shot a test scene without even being asked to.

So who was his Christian Grey in the steamy sex scene? Alex Pettyfer.

Pettyfer was thrust onto the scene with last year's Magic Mike, and it appears as though the 23-year-old has already typecast himself as a hunk (poor him?).

Nearly 10 years after an underdog story for the ages, Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller are prepping for their long-awaited return to the Dodgeball court.

There's no release date set, but Fox and the production company run by Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld have begun work on a script for a Dodgeball sequel.

The original underdog story featured Vince Vaughn’s aptly-named Average Joes gym squad taking on Ben Stiller’s roid-raging Globo-Gym for the glory.

The Dodgeball sequel will not be a rematch.

Better yet, it will feature the adversaries teaming up to battle an even bigger opponent this time, making for endless sophomoric slapstick comedy potential.

Start practicing your wrench-dodging now!
