William Shatner Sings 'F--k You' Before Gwyneth Paltrow Can (Video) :

A day after it was announced that Gwyneth Paltrow would sing a censored version of Cee Lo 'F--k You' on 'Glee', William Shatner took to the airwaves with his own rendition of the song.

Check out Shatner's fully bleeped-out version of 'F--k You' on 'Lopez Tonight':

Long-Delayed James Bond Film Set for November 2012

Is there a light at the end of MGM's tunnel? As part of the studio's bankruptcy filing, MGM has presented future plans for the James Bond franchise, and it seems the delayed-then-canceled Bond 23 is back on, with a hoped-for release date of November 2012. (The studio would then produce another Bond film every other year, with the intention of wholly owning those installments after going in halfsies on the next one.) Whether or not intended director Sam Mendes will return to helm a Peter Morgan script remains up in the air, however. [Bloomberg]

Spider-Man Musical Officially Delayed Until 2011

It's no longer speculation—the $60 million, unfinished musical's premiere will no longer be on December 21. It will be sometime in mid-January. (Previews were originally scheduled to begin on November 14, but the re-writing and re-doing of major scenes haven't helped.)

The economic logic of the world's most expensive musical is brutal:

The show’s advance ticket sales so far total about $8 million in hard cash with an additional $2 million to $3 million in unpaid group orders - amounts that would be healthy for the standard $10 million Broadway musical, but low against the $60 million capitalization and the likelihood that the show will cost upwards of $1 million to run each week.

Its price tag is more than double that of the previous budget record setter, the $25 million Broadway rendition of Shrek.

Industry Roundup: Ice Cube, Dirty Harry Wannabe?

Dirty Cube: Ice Cube — the same Ice Cube who was once known for writing a song titled "F**k the Police" — may be teaming up with director David O. Russell to create a franchise that is "an homage to those 70s pictures like Dirty Harry and Death Wish." Cube would "play a plainclothes detective who's quick on the trigger in an R-rated raw drama that's thematically a throwback." [Deadline]

Great Power, Responsibility: Sally Field and Martin Sheen are separately in talks to play Peter Parker's Aunt May and Uncle Ben in the 2012 movie reboot of Spider-Man. (Andrew Garfield has long been slated to play the lead.) Field is in early talks, while negotiations with Sheen are further along. [HR, HR]

Deadline Casting: The upcoming HBO show Tilda, which will star Diane Keaton as a Nikki Finke–like Hollywood reporter, added on three new executive producers after losing its show-runner, Cindy Mort, in August. The trio is anchored by Six Feet Under alum Alan Poul. Keaton will be joined on the show by Ellen Page and Jason Patric. [Deadline]

Hall Pass Trailer: Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis, Horny Dweebs

When was the last time you were truly psyched on a Farrelly Brothers movie? 2005's Fever Pitch has its fans, but you'd have to go back to 2001's Shallow Hal to find a movie that retained some of the screwball brilliance of their early hits (Dumb and Dumber and There's Something About Mary, of course, although Kingpin will forever have the biggest piece of our hearts). Will Hall Pass break the streak? Well, at least from the trailer, it seems like casting Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis as married, sexually frustrated nerds who get a “hall pass” — a one-week furlough from their relationships with attractive television actresses Jenna Fischer and Christina Appleagate — and then have no idea what to do with it was something of an inspired choice, even if Wilson is forced to wear nerdiness-connoting short-sleeve dress shirts the whole time. Bonus: Steven Merchant as their gawky pal, Richard Jenkins as a leathery skirt-chasing old-timer, and the immortal wisdom of Mrs. Joy Behar.
