The Week in Geek: July 24-31

It's attributed to someone named "Pittacus Lore," but that's a pseudonym for infamous Million Little Pieces author James Frey. Of course, I can't really talk about it because if I do, Steven Spielberg will send Haley Joel Osment to kill me in my sleep. But if you're curious about the project, here's a little teaser from Comic-Con by the stars of the film explaining just what the heck the project is, since nobody has ever heard of it:
