Kevin's announcement follows the news that his hockey flick Hit Somebody will be turned into a six-part miniseries on an unannounced network.

Fans of the 2001 cult classic have been clamoring for a follow-up for a decade, and now Broken Lizard member Jay Chandrasekhar tells Movie Fanatic the comedy troupe is committed to making it happen.

First, however, the producers must end a legal tussle with Fox over revenue made on the original.

"We’re in a discussion with Fox and going to settle it for good," Chandrasekhar says, adding that the turn-around will be immediate once that hold-up is over:

Move over, Tom Cruise. Take a seat, Brad Pitt. Not so fast, Julia Roberts.

Forbes has come out with its list of "Hollywood's Best Actors for the Buck," a rundown of the stars who earn the most money for studios - and none of the usual A-listers are included.

  • Black Swan Poster
  • Kristen Stewart Breaking Dawn Poster

Instead, Natalie Portman sits in first place, as the Black Swan actress earns $42.70 for every dollar she's paid.

A close second? Kristen Stewart, who owes almost all of her success (which translates to $40.60 for every dollar she's paid) to The Twilight Saga.

So much for our terrible Les Miserables review.

The big screen version of this world famous musical banked $18.2 million yesterday, according to The Hollywood Reporter, setting a new benchmark for weekday Christmas Day openings.

Sherlock Holmes owns the overall Christmas record when it opened on a Friday and earned $24.6 million.

Django Unchained, meanwhile, didn't exactly disappoint, either. Despite Spike Lee's protest.

The Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo DiCaprio-driven drama shot past Ali to become the highest-grossing R-rated movie to open on December 25. It brought in a cool $15 million.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey raked in $11.3 million, with Parental Guidance and Jack Reacher rounding out the top five.

Tom Cruise hasn't been given much reason to celebrate this holiday season, as his latest action flick fizzled at the box office.

Jack Reacher, a movie based on a best-selling collection of Lee Child novels, garnered a mere $15.6 million on Friday and Saturday, a scant improvement over Cruise's previous vehicle, Rock of Ages.

So much for talk of a franchise.

The Hobbit, meanwhile, banked another $36.7 and its two-week haul has now pushed past $150 million domestically.

We've listed the top five movies from the weekend below:

Lindsay Lohan was absolutely destroyed in the original screenplay for Scary Movie 5, although it's anyone's guess what material makes the final cut.

The working script was obtained by TMZ and boy, are there a lot of jokes at Lindsay's expense ... even her buddy Charlie Sheen gets in on the act.

Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan

We start it off with them in bed making a sex tape, until she says, "Okay let's do this quick, I got a court hearing in the morning ... It's a driving mishap thing."

"Promise me you won't drive," he urges. "That's very sweet, worrying about me behind the wheel," she replies. "I'm worried about me. I'm a pedestrian," Sheen counters.

BAM! Oh, and it continues ...

Kristen Stewart has made it official: there will be a Snow White and the Huntsman sequel.

Now, Robert Pattinson must hope there won't be a sequel to Stewart's misguided love life, considering what happened the last time she was involved with this franchise.

Kristen Stewart in Thought

"It's gonna be f-ckin amazing. I'm so excited about it, it's crazy," she said of the sequel.

"The other day I said that there was a strong possibility that we're going to make a sequel, and that's very true, but everyone was like, 'Whoa, stop talking about it.'"

"So no, I'm totally not allowed to talk about it."

U.S. Sen. and former presidential candidate John McCain watched the movie Zero Dark Thirty and says it left him sick, because it’s misleading and just plan wrong.

The film suggests the CIA’s harsh interrogation techniques led the U.S. to Osama bin Laden. The 76-year-old veteran adamantly disputes this.

John Picture McCain

He says waterboarding al-Qaida’s No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, did not provide information that led to bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

Yet the movie, a copy of which McCain received Monday, indicates that’s what happened. Filmmakers fell for it hook, line and sinker, McCain said.
