HOLLYWOOD – Eddie Murphy tonight announced that filming would being in the Fall of The Adventures of Pluto Nash 2.
Comedy star of Beverly Hills Cop and Beverly Hills Cop 2 and Beverly Hills Cop 3, Eddie Murphy announced that he would begin filming the sequel to his hit 2002 science fiction comedy The Adventures of Pluto Nash, provisionally entitled The Adventures of Pluto Nash 2. The excited Trading Places star came by the Studio Exec bungalow to talk about his new venture:
After the Beverly Hills Cop TV show fell through I just didn’t know what to do. I mean I’d like to do another Shrek movie but no one can find Michael Myers and Antonio Banderas is doing art movies [last seen in Spongebob Squarepants: Sponge out of Water]. Then I had this idea, why not do Pluto Nash 2. The film everyone has been begging me to do.
Who has been begging you to do Pluto Nash?
Absolutely everyone I meet. I was talking to my cousin and he said ‘Have you heard the news about Pluto?’ I said, I’m not going to do a sequel. Then my barber said ‘Pluto’s a really…’ ‘Great movie, I know but enough,’ I said. It just went on and on. Pluto, Pluto, Pluto. My girlfriend said, ‘It’s New Horizon’ and that’s when I knew. ‘You’re right,’ I said. ‘It will be a new horizon. Okay. I’ll do it.’
How will the film be different?
Well, first of all, the original is set on the Moon and I think this one is going to be set on a moon of Pluto. If only we had a good image to get the art department started. Anyway, I want this film to be a total departure from the original Adventures of Pluto Nash.
So it’s going to be a comedy?
The Adventures of Pluto Nash 2: New Horizons will be released in 2016.

HOLLYWOOD – The bear who stars in the new movie Padington was dubbed by English actor Ben Wishaw, The Studio Exec can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
The news came as a shock to the British films millions of young fans.
‘It’s complete ruddy bullsh*t,’ said Carl (11).
I paid good money to watch Paddington and although I had lots of fun watching his pleasant buffonry and japes, as well as scoffing some top tucker and swilling it down with lashings of ginger beer, I was devilishly put out to discover that there was some actor johnny doing all his lines. Zooks! Let the bear speak, for the love of God’s green earth.
The film’s director, Paul King rushed to explain:
We did try with Paddington’s own voice but unfortunately being from Peru he had a very strong Peruvian accent and his English left a lot to be desired. First of all Colin Firth agreed to do it, but after half a day he threw a wobbly about there being too many green M&Ms in his M&Ms jar and walked off. We had to get Q (Ben Wishaw) from the James Bond films to come in and dub over the bear’s lines.
Although rare and consider dishonest, this is not the first time an actors lines have been overdubbed by people other than themselves. Humphrey Bogart in Beat the Devil was dubbed by Peter Sellers; Darth Vader’s voice was replaced by George Lucas and Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was dubbed by Antonio Banderas.
Paddington is on current release.

HOLLYWOOD – Desperado and Puss in Boots star Antonio Banderas has signed up to appear in Pedro Almodovar’s Julio Iglesias bipic Begin the Beguine.
The Evita actor said that he would be happy to be acting in Spanish once more:
All I’ve had recently are Italian biscuit adverts and although I’ve enjoyed talking to the comedy hen, I haven’t felt very stretched.
What is your relationship to Julio Iglesias?
I have always been a huge fan. Julio has had hit after hit and is one of the biggest selling artists of all time. He released over 80 albums and he had a lot of sex. I mean a lot.
Will that be in the film?
Yes, certainly. The first thing Pedro said to me before I even read the script was that Julio’s father was the youngest gynecologists in Spain. I don’t know what I should take from that, but then I read the script.
Have you met Julio and what does he think of the project?
He’s delighted but a little cautious. Naturally. He lives in Miami now, so I went down to see him and I watched him, trying to get the way he holds himself and walks. He gave me singing lessons and we even went to a brothel where they have those mirrors so that I could see how he… It was an inspiration.
Begin the Beguine will be released in 2015.
CANNES – ‘RAUUUUUUUUUL’ a voice shouts in the darkness. Followed by a smattering of applause and laughter.
This tradition has been with festival goers since 1974 when an unknown Spanish film critic in the Debussy Theatre, despairing of finding his friend as the lights of the room went down, cried out in horror ‘RAUL!’
Now as the lights go down it is common for a lone man to shout the name out. Some variations are allowed. When Harvey Weinstein is here, the lone voice shouts ‘HARVEY!’ for instance.
What people don’t know however is that the unknown Spanish journalist died that night. The lights were down and Raul hadn’t made his presence clear and as he continued his useless search in the darkness, he stumbled over the balcony and fell to his death, exploding across the cinema goers like a bag of paint filled water melons.

Robert Rodriguez has announced plans to use all money from his umpteenth action movie pastiche Machete Kills to build a retirement home for otherwise unemployable ‘actors’. If the tired irony of the first film wasn’t enough in giving a late career boost to the likes of Danny Trejo, Don Johnson and Steven Seagal, the latest chapter dishes career hall passes to Mel Gibson and Charlie Sheen, as well as ‘it doesn’t matter if they can act’ roles to Jessica Alba and Lady Gaga, and – most surprising of all – El Blocco of Woodo, Antonio Banderas.
The Predators director admitted that offering a service to actors he admired was all part of the rationale:
Look we have some tequila, boom boom, we black out and the next morning Kyle Ward comes round and gathers the napkins and types them up. So that’s the script.Then we pick up the National Enquirer and the casting process begins.
However, Lindsay Lohan revealed recently that Rodriguez’s motives aren’t as humanitarian as he makes out.
The fact of the matter is he preys on the carcasses of rotten fame. We get to do a role, we do the old wink-wink to our crimes and misdemeanours, we gain some credibility, but he pays us practically nothing. I did Machete for one choice of the Taco Bell lunch menu. I shit you not. I got cinnamon twists and a double decker taco. And I was billed for the twists.
The new Machete Kills Retirement Home for F*cked Up Actors will be built in Malibu entirely from recycled glossies. Rodriguez said, ‘It’s cheap and environmentally friendly’.
