Aidan Gillen Game of Thrones

Aidan Gillen, best known for playing Thomas Carcetti on The Wire, Littlefinger on Game of Thrones, and an early victim of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, has just signed for a brand new franchise. He’s been cast as Janson, the primary villain of The Scorch Trials, the sequel to the current hit The Maze Runner. Referred to as the characters as Rat-Man, he has an even bigger part in the third book, The Death Cure.

After The Maze Runner‘s big opening weekend, 20th Century Fox green-lit the sequel aimed at a release almost one year from right now, September 18, 2015. Now that the Scorch Trials cast is coming together, filming stars in October. Read More »

There’s been a lot of back and forth over whether David Fincher changed Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl ending, but maybe all this time we should have been fretting over a different auteur-driven literary adaptation. Paul Thomas Anderson has reportedly written an entirely new conclusion for Inherent Vice, based on Thomas Pynchon‘s novel.

Not that Pynchon seems all that upset about it. Indeed, the famously reclusive author even agreed to a cameo in the movie — though he’s so private it’s quite possible no one will even recognize him anyway. Hit the jump for tons more from Inherent Vice, including a new photo of Joaquin Phoenix and Benicio del Toro and details on how Police Squad! served as an inspiration for Anderson.

Y_The_Last_Man_1

The Y The Last Man movie adaptation is officially dead, once again. Almost-director Dan Trachtenberg was asked about the project on Twitter and said the following: “Not happening. But it’s in trusted hands (the creators).” Most people figured as much, considering Tranchtenberg is currently prepping his Bad Robot film Valencia, but this was the first public confirmation of Y‘s current status.

We took the opportunity to ask Trachtenberg about the project and, to our surprise, he was kind enough to oblige. He explained that his Y: The Last Man was based on the first two trades in Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra‘s amazing series, with some characters deleted and action scenes expanded. He talked about what films he looked to for inspiration and which were referenced in the script. And then confirmed the rights reverted back to Vaughan sometime ago and that the project’s future is totally up in the air.

Gone Girl clip

For fans of David Fincher and/or Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl became a must-see the second it was announced. But for those still on the fence — or, alternately, for those who are so eager they just need something to tide them over until the movie actually opens — Fox has tons of new marketing material to share.

Among them are the first Gone Girl clip, four new Gone Girl TV spots, and the full streaming Gone Girl soundtrack. Bury yourself in Nick and Amy’s twisted world after the jump.

Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice features some very colorful characters, and to fill them out he’s hired some immensely talented actors, including Joaquin Phoenix, Benicio del Toro, and Josh Brolin.

Tim Burton Wants Asa Butterfield for ‘Miss Peregrine’

Asa Butterfield in X plus Y

It was probably just a matter of time before Asa Butterfield caught Tim Burton‘s eye. The kid just looks like a Tim Burton character, with his pale skin, dark hair, skinny limbs, and big eyes. And now he may get to be one for real, as Burton is looking to cast him in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Should Butterfield close his deal, he’ll join Eva Green, who previously starred in Burton’s Dark Shadows. Hit the jump for more on Burton’s desire to get Asa Butterfield for Miss Peregrine.

Floors movie

Disney is pretty stacked when it comes to established franchises. The studio has Star Wars, Marvel Studios, Pirates of the Caribbean, Frozen, Cars, and a bunch of others. That’s their bread and butter. But they’re always looking for the next one and may have just found it.

Disney has acquired the rights to Patrick Carman‘s children’s series, Floors. It’s basically Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory set a hotel, and follows a young boy is forced to save a madcap business, with new surprises on every floor, when the owner goes missing. Jason Filardi (17 Again, Bringing Down the House) pitched the series to the studio and will write the script. Read more about the Floors movie and even watch some videos below. Read More »

Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

The Lannister clan has plenty to worry about already on HBO’s Game of Thrones, but now two of them are about to face a threat possibly even greater than Daenerys’ dragons or Melisandre’s shadow monsters: Regency-era zombies.

Charles Dance and Lena Headey, who play Tywin and Cersei respectively, are set for the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. As the title indicates, it’s an adaptation of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice… plus zombies. More on the Game of Thrones Pride and Prejudice and Zombies casting after the jump.
