Now, Mr. Spielberg is heading back further in time to bring us the tale of Abraham Lincoln. There will be no vampires in this version, and hopefully no crystal skulls, but we can assume there will be an astounding performance by Daniel Day-Lewis. (P.S. the header picture is a fake.)

From Entertainment Weekly, Paramount has confirmed the casting of Grey’s Anatomy actor, Patrick Dempsey, to be in Michael Bay’s Transformers 3. Demspey will be taking on the role of Mikaela Bane’s (Megan Fox) boss. His character also has alternative motives other than bossing around the brunette princess when he told BOL in an interview and translated, “Transformers 3, in which I’ll play a character who is much “darker” than the others.” Hopefully with their intentions of “keeping mythology,” Dempsey will play mad scientist Dr. Arkeville who will help the Decepticons with their plans to dominate the universe. Transformers 3 is set to be released in July, 2011 with Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand, Ken Jeong, and Kevin Dunn.
