Muppets on The Move
According to The Hollywood Reporter Disney has been shuffling its release schedules around and The Muppets Movie has moved from Christmas to Thanksgiving 2011. Now shooting in Los Angeles, Muppets was written by Segel and Nicholas Stoller and is directed by James Bobin.

Wonder Woman TV Show Not Imminent
It seems that Ally McBeal mastermind David E Kelley’s much reported TV revamp of Wonder Woman may be quite a while off, if it happens at all. The respected TV producer tells Zap2It , “There’s no real deal in place yet, but yeah, my intent is to take a stab at it. I’ve been working on it between scripts for Harry’s Law . It’s a very, very different genre for me, a very tricky beast. I won’t know whether I’ve cracked it or not until I’ve finished it, but it’s going… I’m at the point where I’m trying to figure out if I can make the franchise work for me… If I can’t, I don’t want to delude Warner Bros or anybody else that I should be doing it. The way I’ve always worked has been to write a script and discover, in the process of the writing, if it's a fertile and creative place where I want to live. If I feel I can make the characters my own and it's a world rich enough for me to revisit, that’s a good sign to me that it's a series worth doing.”

Fringe ’s Sly Nod To Joss Whedon?
It could be a coincidence, but somehow we doubt it. In the States Fringe , as you may well know, is moving to a Friday night time slot on Fox from January. This normally wouldn’t be newsworthy for us lot on this side of the Atlantic, but in this case it is. Because that time slot on Fox is known as the death slot; it’s the place ion the schedule that killed off Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Dollhouse . So, you’ll never guess what the first episode of Fringe going out in that new time slot is called: “ Firefly ”.
