Some news bites for you:
- Almost a year ago, Natalie Portman whipped up her own shingle and started to look into making Amos Oz's A Tale of Love and Darkness. She was hoping to get Jake and Maggie's mom, Naomi Foner, to pen it. Things have changed a bit since then, as Variety reports. The project is still in the works, but now Portman is planning to film it in the novel's original language -- Hebrew.
- If no one is making a documentary about your family, make it yourself! Variety reports that Ozzy's son, Jack Osbourne, is whipping up a documentary on his famous dad, with the help of mom Sharon. He says: "MTV couldn't show the darkness and so they used all the goofy things, but that's not really who he was at the time." He continues: "I want people to see John Osbourne as the guy I grew up with, the tormented, complex musician whose personal demons manifest themselves in so many crazy, unique ways."
- Ehren Kruger, who was the pen behind Transformers, is now looking to God, but in a more bloody and bad guy-filled way. Variety reports that he will adapt Boston Teran's God is a Bullet, which focuses on "the journey of a California lawman forced to go undercover to rescue his daughter from the ruthless gang of criminals who've abducted her." Let's hope big machines with bad dialogue don't enter the mix.
