Morning SpoilersIf there’s news about upcoming movies and television you’re not supposed to know, you’ll find it in here.

Marvel's silliest mutant will torment Wolverine in his solo movie. Deadpool is a hideously scarred assassin with a healing factor like Logan's, but he's mostly known for acting loony and being obsessed with Bea Arthur. His inclusion may actually help keep X-Men: Origins: Wolverine from trying too hard to be "grim 'n' gritty." There's also speculation (wishful thinking) that Gerard Butler may play Wolverine's enemy Sabretooth. [CHUD] More spoilers, including X-Files 2 casting, below:

The new X-Files movie will have a surprisingly high-wattage cast: Billy Connolly, Amanda Peet and rapper Xzibit will co-star. Chris Carter will start directing the script he co-wrote next month in Vancouver. The film will be a stand-alone story featuring Mulder and Scully, not a continuation of the TV show.

What's the target audience for Repo! The Genetic Musical? Even director Darren Lynn Bousman isn't sure, after finishing a first cut. It's not quite a horror movie, nor is it quite a comedy. He sort of hopes it'll become the new Rocky Horror Picture Show, which sounds like a pretty lowball aim.

The Sci Fi Channel's new reality TV show will make Who Wants To Be A Superhero? look like a masterpiece. Run For Money follows a group of contestants who compete for cash prizes as they try to escape from "hunters." Whoever "survives" until the end gets the most money. The sad thing is, I don't even think the writers' strike is to blame for this.
