UPDATE, 7:52 PM: Reddit is looking a little red-faced today. After alleging Wednesday that someone at Warner Bros was trying to game comments and postings about the about-to-open driving thriller Getaway on the social news and entertainment site, Reddit is now changing its tune. The site said tonight that neither Warners nor anyone working for it actually had anything to do with the supposed under-handed marketing move. After looking into the matter more and likely fielding some calls from WB lawyers, Reddit updated its original post with the following statement late Thursday:
After further investigation, we have found that neither Warner Bros. nor any of their employees was involved in this activity. To be perfectly clear, the posts that we detected came from a third party who had no affiliation with Warner Bros. This third party was not part of the marketing efforts of Warner Bros for the film. We regret confusion about the source of these posts, and appreciate the cooperation and understanding of Warner Bros who has taken this as seriously as we do and has very strict policies on these matters.

NEW YORK (November 15, 2012) – The highly anticipated SPRING BREAKERS will receive a Spring 2013 nationwide theatrical release courtesy of A24 and Annapurna Pictures. The film stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine as four college coeds willing to do anything to have their dream Spring Break. Film also features rap star Gucci Mane, introduces the ATL Twins, and has an incredible scene-stealing turn by Academy-Award nominee, James Franco. The film is written and directed by acclaimed provocateur Harmony Korine (KIDS, GUMMO) and prominently features an original score by Cliff Martinez and Skrillex.
Selena Gomez will executive produce and star in Disney Channel‘s one-hour Wizards Of Waverly Place special set to premiere in early 2013. She’ll join Jake T. Austin, Jennifer Stone, Maria Canals-Barrera, David DeLuise and Gregg Sulkin, who’ll reprise their original roles.
The storyline takes the Russo family and friends to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long-lost relatives, but when Alex (Gomez) tries to prove she’s more than a seemingly carefree young wizard, she inadvertently conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. When Evil Alex gets roped into a foreboding plan to take over the world, Good Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a monumental battle between the two versions of herself — all atop the Tower of Pisa.

EXCLUSIVE: Multiple offers are on the table for Aftershock, an earthquake thriller scripted by Eli Roth, Nicolas Lopez & Guillermo Amoedo. It’s the next ‘Eli Roth Presents’ film, and it marks the English-language debut from director Nicolas Lopez. His last two films, Que Pena Tu Vida and Que Pena Tu Boda, were the highest-grossing Chilean films of 2010 and 2011. Roth most recently produced The Last Exorcism, a microbudget film that grossed $70 million worldwide. I’m told that several distributors are in talks, with the Weinstein Company and Relativity Media among them. The dealmaking will likely take place in Berlin, where, after the success of small-budget genre films like Chronicle and The Last Exorcism, these movies are becoming a license to print money. I’ve heard from potential buyers that the plot revolves around an insane asylum on an island, where the inmates escape during the quake.
