● Spike Lee is officially directing the remake of South Korean cult classic Old Boy for Mandate Pictures, a less than obvious choice, if you ask us. [THR] ● Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie declined their invite to Julian Assange’s 40th birthday party, because, well, it was Julian Assange’s 40th birthday party. [The Atlantic Wire] ● In an inspired bit of celebrity stalking, a TMZ cameraman managed to ask Michael C. Hall if his character Dexter would go after Casey Anthony once she was released. Suffice it to say, Michael C. Hall is not amused. [TMZ]

● It’s the last Harry Potter red carpet premiere ever, and Manhattan’s Upper West Side is currently overrun with fanatics because of it! [Observer] ● Speaking of Harry Potter and fantatics, we’re fanatically awaiting the first trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises, witch is attached to this Friday’s big Potter release [Superhero Hype] ● Poor Megan Fox. First of all, she’s really un-good looking and has like, no money. And second of all, she just can’t keep a gig. Rihanna has replaced her as the, er, face of Emporio Armani Underwear. Win win for us! [The Cut]
