There’s nothing earth-shattering in this edition of Sequel Bits, but hey, that’s why they’re Bits and not separate stories. At least it seems like mostly good news. After the jump:
- Jim Henson’s Labyrinth is getting a prequel — but not in movie form
- Now Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey says Wiig isn’t entirely out of the sequel after all
- Alice Eve talks about working with Benedict Cumberbatch and not disappointing Star Trek fans

Chris Sparling wrote the ‘man in a coffin’ thriller Buried, and he followed that script up with another tightly confined thriller, ATM. Sparling’s script was directed by first-timer David Brooks, and the resulting thriller finds three people (Brian Geraghty, Alice Eve and Josh Peck) trapped inside an ATM in the middle of a parking lot thanks to the menacing presence of a murderous figure just outside.
The first trailer has just been released, and while it doesn’t look like anything truly outstanding, ATM does look like the sort of movie I’d watch just to see where the story goes. Check it out below. Read More »
Not only might J.J. Abrams‘ 2013 3D Star Trek sequel be gaining a new cast member, word is the entire Star Trek universe is gaining one too. Alice Eve, best known for her lead role in She’s Out Of My League and pivotal performance in the final season of Entourage, has reportedly beat out several other young actresses for a lead role in the sequel playing a character that’s new to the canon. She’ll join Benicio Del Toro and one more, yet to be cast, older villain, as the latest additions to the cast of the hit 2009 film. Read more after the jump. Read More »

Emma Stone has been moving into more dramatic territory lately with parts in The Help and Gangster Squad, but she may be returning to her comedy roots soon. The actress has entered talks to star in He’s Fuckin’ Perfect, a comedy by first time feature writer Lauryn Kahn. The film is being produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay‘s Gary Sanchez Productions, where Kahn has worked for the past several years as McKay’s assistant.
He’s Fuckin’ Perfect revolves around a pessimistic woman who uses her social media know-how to research her friends’ dates and help them weed out the losers. But when she stumbles across the ideal man, she convinces her friend to dump him so that she can claim him for herself, using her Internet savvy to turn herself into his perfect match. [Deadline]
After the jump, Michelle Monaghan is a sex-addicted FBI agent, Alice Eve is a homewrecker, and Brian Cox gives Zach Galifianakis some serious daddy issues.

Literary adaptations can have a reputation for being stuffy, but James McTeigue‘s The Raven looks anything but. The story, which is not based on legendary writer Edgar Allan Poe‘s poem of the same title, revolves around Poe (John Cusack) as he gets pulled into a serial killer case when a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) realizes that the murderer has modeled his crimes after Poe’s works. (Like a 19th-century Castle, I guess.) McTeigue is the director behind such visually striking actioners as V for Vendetta and Ninja Assassin, and The Raven looks to be along those same lines. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Update: Two more images were released over the weekend, and you can see them in the gallery below.
We’ve seen another shot or two, semi-official and not at all official, of John Cusack in costume as Edgar Allan Poe in James McTeigue‘s film The Raven. Now this is the first for-real official shot of the character, and the only downside is that it looks like the other shots.
Still, The Raven has settled on a March 9, 2012 release date (and evidently decided to keep the title The Raven), and I’m very interested to see more from the movie in which Poe ends up looking for a killer whose methods seem tied to the author’s work. We’ll see some footage at Comic Con when Relativity presents the film in Hall H on Friday July 22, but for now you can see the full image after the break. Read More »

Men in Black III has been delayed once again, with the planned second half of the shoot bumped back at least a month to the end of March. (The film’s shoot was split into two halves, with the first half wrapping around Christmas, and script work delaying the second.)
While the production waits for Jeff Nathanson, Barry Sonnenfeld and the producers to work out whatever script issues are causing problems, a new cast member has been added. Alice Eve is now onboard, and she’ll play a young… well, let’s keep that after the break for the benefit of those who don’t want to know many details about the film. Read More »
After the intriguing news leaked that actresses Alice Eve, Diane Kruger and Rosamund Pike were contenders for a role in Zack Snyder‘s Superman, but that role wasn’t Lois Lane, the speculation began to run rampant. Who could these blond beauties play in Metropolis? Well, Latino Review is now exclusively reporting that those ladies are up for the role of a Kryptonian villainess named Ursa. As in General Zod’s right hand woman. Read more after the jump. Read More »
