There's a lot of little stuff scattered online today, so I'm combining it all into one post for your easy reading. And the art above? A Halloween treat that's tastier than a mini-Snickers, longer lasting, and a lot less damaging to your waistline. (Substitute the mini-Snickers for your trick-or-treat of choice -- oh, those were the days!)

The news of a third Ghostbusters film has many (including myself) a little nervous. You want to see them return, but you don't want to see the Ghostbusters nuke the fridge alongside Indiana Jones, the Skywalker clan, and John McClane. But there's one way to get a fix without seeing your childhood heroes abused onscreen -- and that's in a comic book. And the Ghostbusters have one, a mini series courtesy of IDW. It hits shelves today, and MTV's Splash Page has a six page preview. It looks like a hell of a lot of fun -- and I really hope my shop has a copy left for me. My childhood obsession (and crush on Venkman) is flooding back already.

Now on to the rest of the news:

Varietyreports that Warner Bros has optioned Alexis Nolent's French series Headshot (Du plomb dans la tête) This is the third book of Nolent's (who publishes under the name Matz) to be optioned -- James Mangold has Cyclops in development with Warners, and David Fincher has The Killer over at Paramount. Headshot tells the story of an unlikely alliance between a hitman and a cop, after both men see their partner die. Seeking revenge, they discover they share an enemy, and have more in common than they realized. I hope they both have similar dorky hobbies and problematic children rather than some dark and twisted background, but it's probably the latter. It hasn't been published stateside, but if you're fluent in French, there's a preview here.
