Sony's Columbia Pictures has started production on "The Kitchen Sink," a movie starring Hudgens ("Sucker Punch" and "High School Musical") about teens who face an army of aliens with help from a group of vampires and zombies. The 37-day shoot already has included several nights at Van Nuys High School, a warehouse in the city of Bell, Temple City's City Hall building and an old armory in Santa Clarita that was converted into a "zombie town," location manager Wes Hagan said Tuesday.

The famous torch lady of Columbia Pictures Entertainment Co. got a new moniker Wednesday as the board unanimously voted to rename the company Sony Pictures Entertainment. The name change is designed to lessen confusion between the parent company and its two subsidiaries--Columbia Pictures and Tri-Star Pictures. It also raises the profile of Sony Inc., the Japanese electronics giant that acquired Columbia for $3.4 billion in 1989.
