Oh, And She'll Be Playing Christian Bale's Wife. So. Yeah.
A little while back we heard about an upcoming from from David O. Russell, critically-acclaimed director of the Oscar-nominated film Silver Linings Playbook. I was excited about the project because Louis C.K. was in talks for a role, which would be such a huge deal for him… and for us. And while his participation in the project has yet to be confirmed, we do have news about another cast member. Jennifer Lawrence is on board, y’all! This is a good thing. Click inside to learn more!
A while back we learned that one of my favorite movies of all time (yeah, I know… I have a lot) was coming to television. About A Boy, the 2002 Oscar-nominated film starring Hugh Grant and Toni Collette, is now officially in the works as a pilot. We have some casting news that I’m really excited about (mainly the Minnie Driver part), along with some more deets about the project. Click inside for more!
From The Creator Of 'Ally McBeal' And 'Boston Legal'
Between that Blue Ivy photo and this news, we are officially having the best Saturday ever! A little while back we heard whisperings of a new Fox comedy series that would reportedly star our girl Sarah Michelle Gellar, and that sounded awesome. But it’s now been confirmed that SMG is actually starring in a pilot episode of a CBS single-camera comedy called Crazy Ones. And Robin friggen Williams will co-star, so yeah. I’m psyched!

Han Solo Lives
Last week we learned that plans are reportedly in the works for a Star Wars spin-off movie centered on the character of Han Solo … and today we have a bit of NEW Han Solo news to ingest. It is being reported today that Harrison Ford is in talks to reprise the role of Han Solo in the upcoming sequel film Star Wars: Episode VII. At this point, there is no word on how big of a role Ford‘s Solo will play in the movie, Hell, we don’t even know if this casting rumor is even true but … it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Han Solo does make a cameo in the upcoming SW film.

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
So. Apparently. There’s a TLC biopic in the works, and I wasn’t even consulted about it; so there’s that to be confused about on a Thursday morning. Also, said TLC biopic has apparently cast Lil’ Mama (best known for her Lip Gloss single, judging America’s Best Dance Crew, and for embarrassing the hell out of her self at the 2009 MTV VMAs) as Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes. I am now, officially, confused. Click inside for more deets that will, hopefully, explain all of this.
Full Speed Ahead
Last July we learned that Disney/Pixar announced plans to move forward with a sequel to the hugely successful film Finding Nemo and a month later we learned that Ellen DeGeneres was being courted to reprise her role as Dory (she said yes). Today we learn that Albert Brooks, the actor who voiced Nemo‘s dad in the original film, has finally agreed to reprise his role for Finding Nemo 2. With Brooks on board, production of the sequel can move forward without hesitation. More »
Getting It Right This Time
Back in November, Lifetime TV aired a biopic film on the love affair of the late Elizabeth Taylor and her 56th husband Richard Burton which infamously starred Lindsay Lohan in the titular role of Taylor. As you may recall, Liz & Dick was hailed as a tragedy of the highest order. Later this year, BBC will release a biopic film of their own about Elizabeth and Richard, one that will star actress Helena Bonham Carter as Liz … because the world NEEDS a proper biopic tribute to the legendary Ms. Taylor.

Willow Smith Was Originally Slated For The Part
With the Academy Awards just a couple of weeks away, it’s a good time to be Quvenzhané Wallis. The youngest actor to be nominated for a Best Actress Oscar has been making her away around the pre-Oscar bashments, and many of us are hoping that she’s gearing up for a big win. Now that she’s starred in a Best Picture nominee (Beasts Of The Southern Wild), the inevitable questions is What’s next? Well, rumor has it that we might see her as the next little orphan Annie, in another adaptation of the classic story. The new Annie will be directed by the guy who brought us Easy A. Um, this could be awesome! Click inside for more!
Anna Faris Will Play Her Lead
We’ve been getting some pretty awesome movie news lately. Terrence Malick, Ryan Gosling, and Wes Anderson are all about to change our lives very soon (I hope), and oh– the Bored To Death movie has been confirmed! And here’s another fun fact– actress Ellen Page (who we all remember from films like Juno and Inception) is getting behind the camera for a change. She’ll be making her directoria debut with a movie called Miss Stevens, and I’m kinda psyched! Click inside for more!
This Movie Sounds Awesome
Y’all. We are going to have to start respecting Dakota Fanning‘s gangsta. The little girl (who I’ll always think of as the voice of Coraline, and Sean Penn‘s daughter in I Am Sam… even though she’s done hella stuff since then, including the Twilight sagas) is all growed up and making movies with the heavy hitters. I’d been hearing about this Sundance film Very Good Girls, and apparently she’s in it, and totally naked. Gotta love indie! And now we’re getting word that she’s starring in this crime drama with Elizabeth Banks and my girl Diane Lane (Unfaithful is still that ish). Dakota‘s playing an adolescent girl accused of murder. So yeah, respect her thespian gangsta, and click inside for more!
