by | December 22, 2006 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, we had a first glimpse of Keith Richards in the third "Pirates of the Caribbean" (only for the photo to be removed at the studio’s request), and the first official "Transformers" trailer appeared.

Also, James Franco discusses "Spider-Man 3," Doug Jones does likewise with "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," and a young Michael Myers has been cast for the next "Halloween." Read on.

This week’s most popular news:

First Pic of Keith Richards as Jack Sparrow Senior!

Johnny Depp used him as inspiration for "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." He was supposed to pop up in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest," but didn’t. And now he’s guaranteed to appear in "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End." We now have a picture to prove it! (Note: picture removed at studio’s request)

Trailer Bulletin: "Transformers," Honestly!

A few days back I teased my fellow movie freekz into thinking the brand-new "Transformers" teaser was available for viewing. It was a dirty trick, but I was in that kind of mood at the time. But in order to make it up to all you Tomato-patchers, I now offer you the real and true link. I swear. I just watched the trailer myself! Click here for the flipbook.

Franco Talks "Spidey 3" … and Probably Not "Spidey 4"

We’ve been hearing a lot of the same stuff from the "Spider-Man" principals about how they’d all been signed for three-picture deals, which is why you don’t hear much concrete buzz about a "Spider-Man 4," etc. etc. And now James Franco has chimed in…

Doug Jones Exposes Silver Surfer: No CGI?

Exhausted from doing a day of "Pan’s Labyrinth" press immediately following his last night shoot for "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer," Doug Jones was giddy to talk about his latest costumed character. Some thought Silver Surfer would be a CGI motion capture gig, but it is not.

The New Michael Myers Has Been Cast!

No, not the spooky "Halloween" stalker who wears a mask throughout the story … the kid! Yep, Rob Zombie has chosen a diminutive devil named Daeg Faerch to play the youthful version of the legendary babysitter killer.


Third and final?
