Cannes Roundup: Mixed Reviews for Wall Street 2, Crappy Tweets for Nakata’s Chatroom

• Reviews are mixed for Oliver Stone's Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. The Hollywood Reporter calls it "one of the better sequels in a long time." Jeffrey Wells likes most of it, but says it fails to stick the landing. Some were less kind.

Chatroom, the latest from Japanese horror master Hideo Nakata, is being raked over coals on Twitter this morning: "A disaster from nakata. Who thought that was a good idea?"; "What the f*ck did I just watch?! Chatroom was actually a British film that envisioned actual people in a room chatting. It was terrible!"; "Was just chatting with @DaveKarger and he goes one further: thinks "Chatroom" is one of the worst films he's ever seen. Good times!" [Twitter]

Robin Hood's Danny Huston says he's raising money to begin shooting a self-scripted movie adaptation of Kent Harrington’s 1997 book Day of the Dead. [Deadline]

• It was announced last night that Olivier Assayas’s three-part, five-hour Carlos the Jackal movie, Carlos (which screens at Cannes next week), will air on the Sundance Channel as a miniseries in October and be released by IFC in both its full version and an edited-down three-hour version.
