According to a new report, Rachel McAdams is in the running for the same True Detective Season 2 part that Moss has been circling for the past few weeks. Meanwhile, the other three leads — Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, and Vince Vaughn — seem all but set. Get character details and more after the jump.

Neighbors 2

He’s definitely not Morgan Freeman, but soon Zac Efron will be Driving Dick Kelly. The Neighbors star has just signed on to star in the raunchy comedy with the legendary Robert De Niro. Formerly titled “Dirty Grandpa,” the film is about a recently widowed Army vet (De Niro) who convinces his lame grandson (Efron) to bring him to Spring Break.

Dan Mazer, a producer on Borat, Bruno, The Dictator and Ali G, will direct from a script by John Phillips. Jeff Daniels and Michael Douglas had been circling the lead role when the film was at Universal, but it’s now out on its own looking for funding and distribution. Read More »

Zero Dark Thirty Chastain header

Ridley Scott‘s The Martian is on the fast track. With a November 2015 release date fast approaching, it has to be. So we’ll surely be hearing more and more about the Cast Away meets Apollo 13 thriller in the coming weeks.

The director has already got Matt Damon to play the lead role of Mark Watney, a wisea-ss astronaut who is stranded on Mars. And now the trades are reporting Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig are circling “the female lead” of the film. However, the book most certainly doesn’t have a “female lead” so either the movie is radically different from the book or they’re just up for one of the several supporting, but equally awesome female characters in the film. Read more about The Martian casting below. Read More »
