more news on MILES AWAY...

Madonna debuted the song Miles Away off her upcoming album on Japanese television this past weekend.

The singer lent the song to a TV chef for the theme song to his new show, and she even recorded a personalized greeting for him.

We really like the song, but….

Pharrell told us this past weekend that one of his tunes with her Madgesty, Give It To Me, is a banger and that song is expected to be the second single.

August 23, 2007 Kimura Takuya Tackles First All-English Role

With a major domestic film about to be released in a few weeks, SMAP's Kimura Takuya (34) had some other big news this week. In what will be his first appearance in an English-language movie, he has been named to an all-star international cast for the latest project by renowned Vietnamese-French director Anh Hung Tran (44). "I Come With the Rain", Tran's first movie in eight years, stars Josh Hartnett (29) as former L.A. cop turned private eye, Kline. Hired to find Shitao (Kimura), the son of a Chinese billionaire, he travels to Hong Kong where he teams up with an old friend and local cop (Shawn Yue). His search leads him to the gangster Su Dongpo (Korean star Lee Byung Hun) and his druggie mistress (Tran's wife, actress Tran Nu Yen Khe). But he is haunted by memories of the serial killer Hasford (Elias Koteas) whose crimes almost drove him insane and made him quit the LAPD. The movie is scheduled to open in the autumn of 2008, with a possible screening at next year's Cannes Film Festival. Director Tran is best known for 1993's Academy Award nominee "The Scent of Green Papaya". Meanwhile Kimura's "Hero", the movie version of Fuji TV's most successful ever drama, hits the big screens on September 8. He is joined by co-star Matsu Takako (30) and a host of major names.

Prowler attempts to break into Kimutaku's home
Thu, October 30, 2008 (12:34am EDT)
SMAP member Takuya Kimura recently had an attempted break-in at his home, it was revealed on Thursday. According to police in Tokyo's Meguro ward, the security alarm at Kimura's home was set off at around 7:30pm on October 19. Police arrived on the scene and discovered evidence of attempted trespass around a second-story window.

Kimura was not at home at the time. Police highly suspect that the culprit may be a thief, though nothing was stolen this time and no damages have been claimed. A similar incident occurred in the same vicinity this past May, when someone broke a glass window at the home of comedian Hitoshi Matsumoto.

Is there an update on this? Was the movie released in April? I was in the US in April (New York, Florida, San Francisco, New Jersey, but I seemed not to have noticed any publicity on the movie.
