A couple of projects are definitely moving forward for Adam McKay and Will Ferrell's production company Gary Sanchez Productions. They're moving forward with "King Dork" as "Casa de mi Padre" director Matt Piedmont taking on the project.

"King Dork" has been simmering in development since 2006. D.V. DeVincentis wrote the script, adapted off of the novel written by Frank Portman. In addition to Piedmont directing, they project may have it's lead actor. "Project X" actor Thomas Mann is in final negotiations to join the cast which may include Keir Gilchrist and Nick Offerman ("Parks and Recreation").

The story is set in 1987 during the lead character's sophomore year in high school, where he not only copes with bullies and the pressure from authority figures, but also aims to make sense of his father's unexpected death and track down the mystery girl he fooled around with at a fateful party.

You can still see Thomas Mann wreak all sorts of party havoc in "Project X," out in AMC Theatres now.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
