And now a quick rundown of all the movie news that's fit to print:

After Mel Gibson's sudden cancellation of his potentially career-salvaging cameo in "The Hangover 2," it's coming to light that maybe some of the film's stars weren't on board. Zach Galifianakis alluded to an issue in a recent interview. "A movie you're acting in," Galifianakis says, "you don't have a lot of control - you just show up and vomit your lines out. I mean, I'm not the boss. I'm in a deep protest right now with a movie I'm working on, up in arms about something. But I can't get the guys to ... I'm not making any leeway." Looks like he did.

Apparently a "Total Recall" remake is in the works, and producers are honing in on an actor to play the part originated by Arnold Schwarzennegar. Atop the list, which includes Tom Hardy and Michael Fassbender, is Colin Farrell. [ THR]
