It’s a day of casting – Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Gary Oldman and Ian McShane are to star in Pretty, Baby, Machine adapted from the 2008 gangster comic book from Image Comics by Clark Westerman and Kody Chamberlain. The four play playing Pretty Boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson and Machine Gun Kelly and the common foe they unite against, Al Capone.

In other news, it looks like Natalie Portman has been cast as Jane Foster in Kenneth Branagh’s Thor alongside Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston and Brian Blessed.

Roger Langridge is coming to San Diego courtesy of his Muppet Show work, with something special available for him to sign. Apart from people’s cleavage, obviously.

mcombcard5My favourite San Diego-related press release so far:

Messiahcomplex.com will be releasing a new business card at San Diego Comic Con.  Featuring Stock art and Times New Roman Font.  Written By Ryan Richards and being printed by OverNightPrints.  Limited run of 250 cards are only available in bar patios and in front of hotels where you can smoke.  Each card is individually stamped with spilt drinks and California Pocket Sweat.
