Nerd News: 80s Firefly, Star Wars steampunk, Fast Five and more

 Vol. 1, Issue 8

I love this 80s intro for Firefly:

But, as you so rightly might be asking, where is Simon?
Everyone always knew he'd be the one to go solo.

In movie news:
Now, this is also movie news, but I love the franchise so much that I thought it deserved it's own line: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson set to join fifth Fast and Furious. (!!!)
You'll have to excuse the gratuitous shirtless Rock photo.

The rumor has been out for months and now it's confirmed, Dwayne Johnson has joined the cast of Fast Five, the obvious sequel to 2009's Fast and Furious. He'll be joining Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, the returning Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson who tweeted this news saying;
“Major shouts to Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, & Dewayne [sic] “Rock” Johnson!! “Fast & Furious Five” Let’s get em again!!”
The official news should come any day now but you heard it here first! Shooting begins this summer in Brazil, Rio, and Puerto Rico among other locations.
If you saw Johnson at the last awards show he has bulked back up so I guess he's ready for more action and less Disney!
Check out these photos of the real-life locations of Scott Pilgrim (the books).
    This Scott Pilgrim trailer remix is awesome.

    Also awesome? This casting for a "what-if?" female version of The Expendables. My fave: The Milla Jovovich/Jason Statham pick.

    I would most definitely like an entire set of these Star Wars steampunk illustrations. Please and thank you, Greg Peltz.



    On a similar note, did you know these 19 facts about Star Wars? It hurts me to picture Christopher Walken as Han Solo, regardless of how awesome the man is.

    Ooh.

    Finally, how good are your eyes at telling which hue goes where? Try this color iq test. I got a zero. (The lower the score, the better.) /brag
