Los Angeles didn't get chosen as the location for the latest "Fast & Furious" movie, but it did land the spoof version of the popular car chasing franchise. The actual "Fast & Furious 7" has been filming in Atlanta to tap into Georgia's 30% tax credit, though some filming is expected to occur in L.A. But "SuperFast," a parody of Universal's "Fast and Furious" films, began filming in Vernon, south of downtown, last week. The independently produced movie comes from writer-directors Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg, known for the "Scary Movie" films and for parodies of "Twilight" with their satiric "Vampires Suck" and the historical epic "300" with their comical "Meet the Spartans.

Perhaps they had a change of heart. Actors Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn have put a Pacific Palisades property they bought two years ago on the market at $6.5 million -- minus the house. The couple purchased the lot in early 2011 for $5.7 million, public records show, and razed the existing house and swimming pool. The graded lot of more than half an acre is level and has views of the Getty, Century City and the mountains. Russell, 61, starred in "Touchback" (2011) and will star in the upcoming films “The Fix” and “Bone Tomahawk.” Hawn, 67, gained recognition among television viewers in the late 1960s for her role as a regular and dancer on "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

KURT RUSSELL, the leading man in films as varied as "Escape From New York," "Silkwood" and "Dreamer," was in Austin last week for the Texas premiere of "Grindhouse." The 56-year-old stars in Quentin Tarantino's slasher half of the double feature, whose zombie half is directed by Robert Rodriguez. * You're getting ready for a premiere right now. What designer gown are you wearing? I'm just getting ready to go! As is often so, something Western. Uh, designer boots?

"GO, Moj. Go get him, Moj. Do your job." Kurt Russell is lounging outside the lush Malibu home he shares with longtime companion Goldie Hawn, watching his 3-year-old English bulldog, Mojo, bark as he runs after any birds that dare land near the beach property. It's hard to believe that Russell, a still-youthful 54, is a 45-year veteran of show business.
