Moviehole caught up with Seth Green this week who let us in on a new project he’s working on.

“I’m gonna direct The Freshmen, which is a comic book that my friend Hugh Sterbakov and I created”, the “Sex Drive” star says.  “We have two graphic novels in the marketplace, and we conceived it as a feature.  But that’ll be the movie that I direct.”

The word “chainsaw” flickers onto the computer screen. A cartoonish figure unleashes a guttural scream as a whirring sound blares in the background. The metallic fighter buries a chainsaw into his adversary’s skull. All is black and white, other than the red blood that splashes from the virtual victim’s head.

To the state of California, Nintendo Wii’s “Mad World” video game, expected to be released in the spring, is just the sort of gore-filled virtual play that justifies a 2005 law barring the sale or rental of violent video games to minors. But in the courts, the efforts of California and other states to regulate violent video games have been carved up and tossed aside like one of those unfortunate video game characters.

Things You’ll Need:

* 24p video camera
* scale model
* laser range finder (optional)

Step1
Get Yourself a Scale Model.

It’s important that the model is to scale because you’re going to use it to do some measurements. In our example we’re going to pretend we have a 1/12 scale model that is 1 foot in length. That means our full sized tank is 12′ long from ass to barrel. You can also make up the scale if you want, but you’re not necessarily going to match up to the size of the real thing.

With Halloween upon us, it was a nice surprise when Neil Gaiman dropped by the MTV offices to discuss his latest project, “The Graveyard Book” — now number one on its respective New York Times list. Given the intense interest in Hollywood to adapt it before it ever came out, we had to ask: Will there be a movie version?
Yes, according to Gaiman.

“I don’t know if I can talk about this, but seeing that you’ve asked me, and seeing that I haven’t been told by anybody that I can’t talk about it,” Neil revealed, “but yes.”

It’s about that time again that we had another update from James Cameron on Avatar. Our last update from Cameron was dated August 9th, so I’m glad we’ve finally got some new quotes. This time he makes an appearance on the Canadian talk show “The Hour” for a brief interview (you can watch the video below) and obviously talks about how challenging the post-production work is on the film. By the time we get to the December 18th release date next year, he’ll have been working in post-production for over two years on Avatar. Not only is that an impressive feat on its own, but Cameron compares it to “trench warfare.”

Because of the worldwide economic slump being felt even harder in Europe and the Far East, two of Europe’s largest toon film houses, Sparx Studio and Bibo Films, have decided to stop production on two of their projects, the highly anticipated CGI animated flick “Bunyan & Babe” and “A Monster in Paris.”

On his production blog, director McG announced that Terminator Salvation has indeed wrapped principal photography and that it’s now well into its post-production work.

This is always a good sign that things are moving forward smoothly, you know, well-oiled machine and such. Now we just need to hope that not too many re-shoots have to be done; specifically for the ending.

McG said that a cut of the film was shown to stars Christian Bale and Sam Worthington who both seem to have liked where it was going.

If you’ve got a far-flung assortment of computers to manage, there are some great zero-config paid and install-a-client-first free options out there — including the cross-platform hosted approach of LogMeIn. The LogMeIn Free client runs fine on Mac OS X, and the web-based control UI is capable; but how delightful would it be to take that same capability and stick it in your pocket? Very delightful.

LogMeIn has begun accepting applications for the private beta of LogMeIn Ignition for iPhone/iPod touch, the mobile client version of the remote control platform. With a final release planned for the end of the year, the client will allow full remote control of any computer in your list, including screen blanking and zoom/pan options.

If you enjoy Tap Tap Revenge and you’re a fan of Nine Inch Nails, you’re in luck. Tapulous has released Tap Tap Revenge Nine Inch Nails Edition (iTunes link). Featuring 13 tracks picked by NIN frontman Trent Reznor, it’s the first game on the iPhone that had my wife playing through toothbrushing time with the kids. After getting the device back I discovered there’s a giveaway that you enter when you post scores of 150,000 or higher online. The prize? A signed Les Paul guitar and tickets to the NIN show of your choice.

On top of all this, the game feels more responsive and flows better than the original Tap Tap Revenge. Tracks from Ghost seem made for Tap Tap, adding to the gameplay instead of distracting from it. The app costs $4.99, and is worth it if you’re a fan of the later works of Nine Inch Nails or you love punching the screen with your index finger for hours.
