Morning News Bulletin

Good morning all.

The Morning News Bulletin is a daily roundup of film news that happens usually in the US where all the "film-people" live.

Here are two of the bigger news items floating along the film seas.

The production problems on the Transformers 3 set do not seem to be subsiding.
Megan Fox, the film's human and not robotic eye-candy was kicked of the film and now Total Film has reported that the film is struggling to integrate 3D technology into the film.

However, director Michael Bay has attacked the rumours with a rather aggressive blog post.

“I read these morons on the internet who think they are in the know. ‘We have have problems with our 3D????’ Really?” he wrote.

“Come into my edit room and I will show you beautiful 3D. There has never been a live action show that has pushed the boundaries of 3D like Transformers 3. We shot the entire movie with 3D cameras. I actually loved shooting in 3D.”

Mr Bay promised to make all the critics eat lots of humble pie when the trailer for Transformers: Dark Side Of The Moon debuted at showings of Tron: Legacy and Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader later this year.

In other Total Film news, comedy acting legend Leslie Nielsen passed away this morning.

The Canadian actor died at 84 after suffering from pneumonia.
He had spent the past 12 days at the Ft. Lauderdale Hospital.

"With his friends and his wife, Barbaree, by his side, he fell asleep and passed away," Doug Nielsen, his nephew said.

Nielsen is famous for his roles in spoofs. He starred in Airplane! and Dracula Dead annd Loving It as well as Wrongfully Accused. His most beloved role may have been as detective Frank Drebin in the Naked Gun movies. And to think in the 1950s he was a serious actor, garnering praise for his role in The Poseidon Adventure.
