Photos from the event show the sexy inmates strutting down a makeshift runway, complete with sashes, evening gowns, and swimsuits. Hot! [Boing Boing]

Hugh Jackman Confirms Wolverine 2 is Heading to Japan

MTV caught up with Hugh Jackman over the weekend at the Teen Choice Awards and talked briefly about the sequel to Wolverine, confirming that the plot would be going to Japan. "Japan is where we're heading, [and] we're starting to work on it now. We're in the… first steps of developing that story." Even though it was confirmed back in May that Wolverine 2 was a go, this is the first official talk about where the plot would be focused. "I think the fans love that saga. It's my favorite saga of the Wolverine stories," Jackman says. "That's a movie I've longed to make from the beginning, so that's where we're heading." [MTV]

In an interview with The Believer magazine, Thom Yorke has revealed that fans will probably be waiting a long time for a new Radiohead LP. "None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again. Not straight off," Yorke said. "I mean, it's just become a real drag. It worked with In Rainbows because we had a real fixed idea about where we were going. But we've all said that we can't possibly dive into that again. It'll kill us." What a drag, indeed.

Michael Jackson Film Gets Green Light From Judge

After a judge approved a major deal to produce a film made from footage of Michal Jackson’s final rehearsals, fans will get to see the King of Pop perform one last time. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff approved a deal on Friday between Michael Jackson's estate, concert promoter AEG Live, and Columbia Pictures. The ruling was announced today during a hearing where a separate merchandising deal was being considered. A proposed contract states the movie will feature footage of Jackson's final rehearsals for his London comeback shows at the O2 arena. The film could also feature videos prepared for display during the This is It gigs. AEG Live has said it has more than 100 hours of footage of preparations and rehearsals for the shows. The final film is due by late October, but a release date has not been issued. [Billboard]

Playstation 3 "Slim" Coming, Along with a Price Cut?
PS3 Slim rumors continue to add fuel to the fire. French games site JVN got ahold of an "anonymous retailer" who has spilled the supposed beans of an impending PS3 Slim launch in Europe. Word is that the console is supposed to land next month over there for €300 Euro -- €100 Euro less than it currently retails, a real sight for sore, price-gouged eyes - and Gamescom seems to be the safest bet for a debut.

General Motors Using eBay to Auction Off Excess Inventory
When General Motors announced its post-bankruptcy turnaround plan, one of the more obscure items in its strategy was to sell vehicles through eBay Motors. That plan goes into action tomorrow, as 225 of GM's 250 California dealerships begin piloting the program. Under the program, GM will sell Chevrolet, Pontiac, GMC, and Buick models on the popular auction site, with the transaction being handled by a nearby dealership. Some of the auctions will be held with a bottom line "buy it now" price, while others will be bid-style sales.  So, is there a potential for crazy, awesome deals?  All signs point to "maybe."
