Great, now World War Z can feature tons of stupid plot holes in technology and characters that die because they don't simply run in a different direction.

I need to see how Emma Watson does in that Sophia Coppola movie (AND in Perks) before really judging if she can act.

He's busy filming his own project and he's busy promoting the other projects he's involved in.
I love JGL and thought it would have been cool to see him do a Tarantino movie, but c'est la vie.

Dredd could actually be really cool. Karl Urban is a good choice.

Any new music coming from EITS is exciting.
