Porsche Design Aluminum Sled

This was my trustworthy flexible flyer when I was a kid…


Now, even sleds have been redesigned for the new millennium. Introducing the Porsche Design Aluminum Sled ($425). This simple, gorgeous sled sports an aluminum frame with stainless steel runners, a durable waterproof seat made from black imitation leather and a Porsche logo on top. Horsepower, torque, and 0-60 time unknown.

Land Of The Lost Teaser Poster

Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world—a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost.

Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist (Danny McBride) named Will. Chased by T. rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally—a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone)—to navigate out of the hybrid dimension. Escape from this routine expedition gone awry and they’re heroes. Get stuck, and they’ll be permanent refugees in the Land of the Lost.

Based on the classic television series created by Sid & Marty Krofft, “Land of the Lost” is directed by Brad Silberling and produced by Jimmy Miller and Sid & Marty Krofft. The film is scheduled for release on June 5, 2009.

Fox Developing Female Werewolf Program

Talk about a hairy “Sex and the City.”

The Fox network is developing “Bitches,” a dramedy about a quartet of female friends in New York who are werewolves.

The project, which has received a script plus penalty commitment from the network, hails from feature writer Michael Dougherty and Warner Bros. TV.

TV writing duo Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts have come on board to supervise Dougherty. The two also will serve as executive producers alongside Dougherty if the project, described as a quirky urban fairy tale, goes to series.

“Bitches” continues the werewolf theme from Dougherty’s recent horror flick “Trick ‘r Treat.”

2009 is shaping up to be a big year for werewolves with the release of the Benicio del Toro-starring remake of “The Wolfman” and the “Twilight” sequel “New Moon.” (From The Hollywood Reporter)

Neil Patrick Harris Would Like To Do A Dr. Horrible Sequel

Neil Patrick Harris told SCI FI Wire that he’s eager to appear in a sequel to Joss Whedon’s hit Web musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog and would also jump at the chance to guest on Whedon’s upcoming Fox SF series Dollhouse. “Oh, God, I wish I could say there was going to be a Dr. Horrible sequel, but I know there’s so many people involved in the creation of it that have a lot of other stuff going on right now,” Harris said in an interview at the Video Game Awards last week. “Mainly, Joss [is doing] Dollhouse, and he has another movie, Cabin in the Woods, that he’s doing at the same time. So I don’t know that anything would happen soon. But everyone has been super-enthusiastic about it, and I think that means that hopefully something will come.” Having worked with Whedon on Dr. Horrible–in which Harris played the title character, a wannabe super villain–Harris now finds himself among the actors whom Whedon might cast in other projects. Whedon has previously cast actors from former shows on new ones: Amy Acker and Eliza Dushku of Angel and Buffy the Vampire Slayer are now on Dollhouse, and Buffy’s Felica Day and Serenity’s Nathan Fillion were Harris’ co-stars in Dr. Horrible. Asked about appearing in Dollhouse, Harris laughed. “Wow! Well, you know, I’m in CBS’ corner right now because of How I Met Your Mother, so I don’t know that I’d be able to, but I think it’s produced by 20th Century Fox, so, you know, they’re sort of cousins,” he said. “That would be fun! All right. I’ll ask Joss! I like being a cousin in the Whedon family, so whatever he wants me to do. Except porn.” No Joss porn? “Well, twice,” Harris said, with tongue in cheek. “It will drop next year. And, you know what I mean by ‘drop.'” Dollhouse debuts on Fox on Feb. 13; Dr. Horrible is now available on DVD. (From
