HOLLYWOOD (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This is no joke: The Joker outfit Jack Nicholson wore in the 1989 Batman movie is going up for sale. The iconic multi- colored suit created by famed tailor Tommmy Nutter is expected to fetch at least $15,000 at a Bonhams memorabilia auction next month. Experts believe the highest bidder will be either a diehard Batman fan or a fashion-savvy Tommy Nutter collector.

SAN DIEGO – Filmmaker Eli Roth has a new project up his sleeve, but it isn’t a creepy horror flick this time. This past weekend at the Tron: Legacy party held near the San Diego Comic-Con, Roth told FlashNews that he’s helping Wu-Tang Clan frontman Rza “get a film off the ground.” He explains, “It’s gonna be a kung fu Spaghetti Western action film, and Rza is probably doing the soundtrack for it too.”

HOLLYWOOD – In the ultimate surprise twist, the unexpected ending of The Sixth Sense has been voted the most shocking movie moment of all time in a poll by E1 Entertainment. Other movie twists that made the cut include the scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho when Norman Bates reveals the real identity of his mother, Kevin Spacey’s unmasking at the end of The Usual Suspects, and the famous revelation about Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back.

LONDON – Anne Hathaway is a hit over in London. The actress is currently in England filming a new movie and she’s been spending a lot of time charming locals at the local Prince Arthur pub in East London. Hathaway recently took the mic and performed an impromptu cabaret number for patrons at her favorite bar, but she hasn’t let the hard partying get the best of her. Despite the late nights, insiders say Hathaway still shows up to set in the mornings “fresh as a daisy.”
