News: Fred Durst is Josh Shwartz

To say Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst's true indie debut "Me, Fred Durst banging this faceless Abercrombie model from the back" was a runaway success would be an understatement. So I approach new film The Education of Charlie Banks, starring Jessie Eisenberg from The Squid & The Whale with no trepidation at all, especially considering it was finished in 2007 and only getting a release now. That and after The Longshots featuring Ice Cube did so well...
Charlie Banks looks like it might be the Talented Mr Ripley on the set of Gossip Girl when they all went to the Hamptons for the summer. But if I'm wrong that's cos the trailer and website doesn't tell you much other than emotional teens in New York - one of which looks like 80s Matt Dillon. The film is out in the US March 27.

In other news the sport-rocker has another two albums in the works. Coolio has been done for crack - so not really news. Rihanna will testify against Chris Brown if subpoenaed (that's a funny looking word), tickets for Pinkpop went on sale saturday - 140 euros for three days with Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Elbow, Depeche Mode, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and more. And Pitchfork Music Festival have announced their line-up that includes Yo la Tengo, Built to Spill, Jesus Lizard and Tortoise playing the songs you choose as well as The Walkmen, The National, Grizzly Bear and more. Lucky if you're in Chicago. Tix on sale March 13.
