ELIZABETH TAYLOR is gearing up for a return to the big screen and, if this week's rumours are to be believed, it's going to be a belter. She'll play Dorothy who, 50 years after she skipped down the yellow brick road, returns to Oz as a widowed pensioner. Rod Steiger, who broke the news in an interview, will play the Cowardly Lion, "now so tough he has become a gangster and scares everyone to death". Can't wait.
CATHERINE ZETA Jones isn't hanging round after her turn in The Mask of Zorro. Gossip has it has it that Jones is in the running to don the boots for a new Wonder Woman movie.
AH, SWEET justice. An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn - Joe Eszterhas's film about the production of the worst film ever -, this week looked poised for a victory in the Golden Raspberries. The Raspberries honour the year's turkeys and Eszterhas's horror has managed to scoop an epic nine nominations.
