Michael Fassbender's penis is having a huge year and it seems like scheduling the actor is going to get even harder in the near future.
The star, who became a household name with his leading role as a tortured sex addict in Steve McQueen's 2011 drama "Shame," is starting 2012 with two big projects on the horizon.
UPDATE: Alcon Entertainment is denying the reports of Harrison Ford in talks for a "Blade Runner" sequel.
"It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in 'Blade Runner,'" Andrew Kosove from Alcon told Deadline. "To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we're going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment."
When Alcon Entertainment's plans to craft a new "Blade Runner" prequel/sequel/Replicant were announced nearly a year ago, it sent sci-fi fans abuzz with concern about how they could possibly recreate the 1982 masterpiece's heady mix of cyberpunk noir. Now a key puzzle piece may be falling into place: Harrison Ford. Get More »
There's an art to making a good teaser trailer; you have to provide just enough to the audience to get them excited without giving away the whole kit and kaboodle too early. You know, why pay for the movie milk when you've got the trailer cow for free? Or... something.
So, yeah, it's an art. But luckily for all of us, director Ridley Scott is an artist like no other, which helps explain why his one minute teaser clip for "Prometheus" is about the coolest damn thing you're ever likely to see.
And if the trailer is to be believed, maybe the last. Get More »

Ever since Ridley Scott announced his upcoming sci-fi epic "Prometheus," fans have been scrambling for scraps of information, trying to learn all they can about the movie that may or may not be a prequel to Scott's 1979 classic "Alien."
You can finally relax, because thanks to our brand-new guide, the whole world is about to be clued in on Everything We Know About "Prometheus" So Far. It may not quite be the gift of fire, but trust us: When it comes to movies, this is the next best thing.
Gerard Butler is dead-set on proving to the world he's more than just a pretty face with a great set of abs and an accent that makes our knees feel a little weak when we hear it.
It turns out he's also been doing this whole acting thing for a while now too.
Deadline reports that the Scottish star is teaming up with "Blade Runner" director Ridley Scott on a new project based on the life of former British army officer Simon Mann, who assembled a team of mercenaries to kill Equatorial Guinea's president Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo as part of a coup d'etat in 2004.

We've been huge fans of edit master Kees van Dijkhuizen's chops at summarizing a brilliant director's filmography in less than three minutes, including past outings with Wes Anderson, Michel Gondry, Guy Ritchie and Baz Luhrmann.
Now his "[the films of]" series is taking on a serious living legend, a filmmaker with a painter's eye and a commercial director's zeal to sell every single image as the most insanely beautiful thing you've ever seen: Sir. Ridley Scott. Get More »
It's Ridley Scott's world, and we're just living in it. His latest remake-my-own-movie project is "Blade Runner," the incredible sci-fi film that's inspired countless directors, artists, fashion designers, tattoos, and Halloween costumes.
There's not much info other than that, we're afraid. Maybe he got a little tipsy at a party and was like, "Hey! Maybe I'll remake 'Blade Runner.' That would be awesome," and someone overheard it. We don't know. Get More »
Get ready for the adventures of Nite Owl... in outer space!
The crew of Ridley Scott's top-secret sci-fi movie keeps getting bigger as Patrick Wilson is now officially on board the "Prometheus," according to The Playlist.
We know as much about Wilson's role as we do about the rest of the movie, which is somewhere around the amount of diddly-squat (or, "Ridley-squat," if you will). Get More »
