Rumor Mill 8/30

Heroes and Scrubs
In the upcoming new season of the popular Heroes it rumored that one of last season's recurring and popular characters will die in the first two episodes. Also, one of the series regulars will not return well we will see the return of one we thought was died (which I assume they mean Sylar's obvious non-death last season). As for Scrubs, Dr. Kelso will be leaving Sacred Heart some time during the season and Elliot calls off the wedding.

Punisher: War Zone
The Punisher is getting a sequel and now it has a title, Punisher: War Zone. Unfortunately, Thomas Jane from the first movie decided to drop out of the sequel after issues with the filming. He will be replaced by Ray Stevenson, who's greatest acting achievement so far seems to be a part in the HBO series Rome.

'Witch Mountain' Remake with 'The Rock'
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is apparently going to play a Las Vegas Taxi Driver in the remake of the 1975 Disney movie "Escape to Witch Mountain." For those who don't know the first movie it revolved around two kids who had strange abilities that are found to be alien related. The "alien related" part is clearly the reason for the choice of story location due to it's proximity to Area 51 in the Nevada desert. The thought of this remake is quite disheartening though. The location makes sense story wise but Las Vegas isn't exactly the best place to set a family movie, and with "The Rock" in this movie there is a high probability of a senseless fight scene showing off Johnson's wrestling movies.
