Michael Moore Will See the Weinsteins in Court, and 6 Other Stories You'll Be Talking About Today

michaelmoore_300.jpgAlso in this Monday edition of The Broadsheet: Charlie Sheen calls it a draw... Another Paul Greengrass project is no longer happening... Woody Allen returns to acting... and more ahead.

· According to Michael Moore, Harvey and Bob Weinstein "have been nothing but a force for good for indie filmmakers..." Butttt... he's still suing them for $2.7 million dollars he says he is owed for Farenheit 9/11, and also says that settling is out of the question. Moore insists that he blames only the accounting people and that the Weinsteins shouldn't take it personally, but we'll just see how that goes. [New York Post]

· You've probably heard that Charlie Sheen's first performance of his live Violent Torpedo of Truth tour in Detroit didn't go so well, with Sheen ending the show early after getting booed off the stage. But, he fared better in Chicago, where he ditched the whole variety act and instead just sat on stage alone answering softball questions from an interviewer. #Tying? [Deadline]

· Paul Greengrass just can't get a break. Universal has pulled the plug on his Martin Luther King Jr. biopic, Memphis. [Deadline]

· Woody Allen will return to acting for the first time since 2006's Scoop for French director Sophie Lellouche's Paris Manhattan. Here's the twist: In this film, he'll be playing himself. Yep, huge stretch. [Collider]

· Japan currently does not know where it's radioactive water is going. Hollywood! Cut all pre-production spending on that Godzilla remake! It looks like you might just be able to remake it as a documentary soon. [Yahoo!]

· And the latest Lindsay Lohan casting rumor has her playing... Sharon Tate? Really? This piece was published two full days after April 1st, but keep the grains of salt handy all the same. [TMZ]

· The release of The Darkest Hour, a 3-D alien invasion movie with Olivia Thirlby and Emile Hirsch, has been pushed back from August to December. With the total dearth of alien-themed movies coming out over the next few months, this seems like a pretty cruel move on Summit's part. Oh wait... [The Hollywood Reporter]
