Bad Santa, the film starring Billy Bob Thornton, looks to have bagged itself a new writer director for the sequel in the shape of Entourage creator Doug Ellin.  At one point last year it looked as though Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink was going to bring Bad Santa back to the big screen but he seems to have been slung in a sack somewhere allowing Ellin to enter the fray.  Ellin might be a trifle busy himself at the moment with him working on bringing Entourage to the big screen but Billy Bob Thornton has apparently cleared a space in his schedule and is anxious to return to the role.  In the first film, Thornton played a drunk, rude con man who posed as a department store Santa in order to rob the place.  But when he made friends with a strange young boy the plans started to unravel.  Ellin is said to be currently re-drafting a script from Johnny Rosenthal in order to direct the film this autumn.  So, are you ready for more Bad Santa?  Source – Deadline

Alex Moss’ obsession with film began the moment he witnessed the Alien burst forth from John Hurt’s stomach. It was perhaps ill-advised to witness this aged 6 but much like the beast within Hurt, he became infected by a parasite called ‘Movies’. Rarely away from his computer or a big screen, as he muses on Cinematic Deities, Alex is “more machine now than man. His mind is twisted and evil”. Email:
