Julia RobertsOscars red carpet gets rerouted, Van Damme is making 'Bloodsport 2' and more ...

The Oscars red carpet may be getting a bit of a makeover this year, with the Academy asking presenters to skip their pre-show stroll so that more viewers will tune in during the actual ceremony telecast to see who's doling out the awards and what they're wearing. Though the list of presenters is being kept under wraps, this could mean that high-wattage stars such as Julia Roberts, Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks will be missing from the carpet.

In other news, Jean-Claude Van Damme wants to play a drug-addicted child abuser in a sequel to his first movie 'Bloodsport'; Adam Sandler is rounding up pretty much all of his pals for a star-studded high school reunion movie; and 'Chuck' star Zachary Levi has been tapped to co-star with a bevy of CGI rodents in 'Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel.'

Get the latest scoop on blockbuster deals, casting coups, hot scripts and news from the set of Hollywood's biggest projects.
