Rumour: Grim Fandango Remastered In The Works?

 I found this post from pocketgamer this morning with this headline  
LucasArts assembling team for remastered iPhone and iPad version of Grim Fandango
Now don't get excited because as from the quote below there is no evidence.  Unfortunately.  Its only speculation.

Grim Fandango
There are a handful of adventure games that any self-respecting fan of the genre cherishes.

The Secret of Monkey Island and Broken Swordtop the list, and Grim Fandango is right there with them.

Calls for a remastered edition of Grim Fandango have been lodged with publisher LucasArts for years without avail, yet the company's success with the superb remakes of The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2 have piqued interest in another updated adventure.

While I can't confirm that development on an iPhone and iPad edition of Grim Fandango has started, there's a lot of talk.

It's easy to understand why: not only is it a great game, but it would feel right at home on iPad, in particular. The masterful work done on Monkey Island 2 Special Edition shows that LucasArts has a knack for remakes and there's no doubt the developer could do a bang up job with this title.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.

UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
