Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, And Others Cast In Seth MacFarlane’s Next Movie

'A Million Ways To Die In The West'

It took me forever to finally get around to seeing Seth MacFarlane‘s directorial debut, Ted, but when I did it was sooo worth it! I thought it was such a ridiculously fun movie and I was excited to hear that the Family Guy creator was back at work on his next film. Seth had a big year with his hosting gig at the Oscars, and when Ted was released in 2012, it made huge waves at the box office. His next film boasts a star-studded cast (including Amanda Seyfried, Neil Patrick Harris, and Charlize Theron) and I’m thinking we can expect another big year from MacFarlane. Click inside for more!

First Look: Marion Cotillard, Mila Kunis, Clive Owen And More Star In ‘Blood Ties’

Marion's Co-Star From 'Rust & Bone' Is In It Too!!! Agh!!!

I can’t remember the last time I was so excited with a cast, but OMGeeee! Marion Cotillard (who’s also got that new flick with Joaquin Phoenix). Mila Kunis. Matthias Schoenaerts AKA Marion‘s boo from Rust and Bone. Zoe Saldana. Clive Owen. And more!!! Blood Ties is a new film from the French director Guillaume Canet who put me on to Marion Cotillard years ago when he directed her in Love Me If You Dare. New images have been released from the set and I’m psyched! Apparently the movie is a remake of the 2008 film Les Liens Du Sang (Rivals) and it tells the story of two brothers (played by Clive Owen and Billy Crudup) involved in a life of crime. But okay, do you get that Marion and Matthias are in another movie together?! PITNBr Natalea, is this not the dream?! Aghhh! Peep the gallery for more! Oh, and Mila‘s not in these photos but there are pics of her on Us Weekly; she had to put on some weight for this role, so I’m expecting good things.

Neither Alexander Skarsgård Nor Tom Hiddleston Will Star In ‘The Crow’ Redux

It now looks like Luke Evans will get the role

In recent weeks we’ve been hearing casting rumors for the lead role of Eric Draven/The Crow in the planned remake of the 1994 film The Crow. First we heard Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) was up for the part, then we heard Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) was likely to get the role. Today we hear that neither Tom nor Alexander will star in the redux because the project’s first choice actor has been put back into the mix. When plans to remake The Crow first got underway back in 2009, actor Luke Evans was reportedly the project’s first choice as The Crow. But, at the time, he was unavailable to play the part. Due to the many delays that have plagued the project, Evans‘s schedule has cleared up and it now seems very likely that the role will be his if he wants it … so says Deadline Hollywood. More »
