For a while there it looked like Ariel Vromen‘s The Iceman was on the verge of falling apart, as James Franco dropped out of the project. But the hitman biopic is moving along with David Schwimmer and Chris Evans added to the cast in recent weeks, and now Winona Ryder has boarded the picture as well in a role once slated for Maggie Gyllenhaal.
Ryder will play the wife of mob contract killer Richard Kuklinski, a.k.a. The Iceman (Michael Shannon), who’s unaware of the true nature of her husband’s career. Ray Liotta and Ryan O’Nan will also star.
Based on interview footage and Anthony Bruno‘s book The Iceman: The True Story of a Cold-Blooded Killer, the picture is scheduled to begin production early next year in Louisiana. [Deadline]
After the jump, a former Everybody Loves Raymond star gets fired by a former The Office star, a Broadway adaptation casts a Broadway star, and a trio of rising Brit talents sign on for an artsy romance.

Four years have passed since The Sopranos cut to black and in that time, series creator David Chase has been laying low. He waited until last year to announce that he’d make his feature film writing and directing debut with an untitled coming-of-age, period rock drama and since then tiny bits of information have slowly formed a bigger picture. That picture is now as complete as it’s going to get as Paramount has announced the full cast for the film.
Once rumored to be called Twylight Zones, we recently learned that Sopranos star James Gandolfini and comedienne Lisa Lampanelli were part of the film, and Variety has now announced that the remaining cast includes Brad Garrett, Bella Heathcote, Christopher McDonald and Molly Price. Read who each actor is going to play, the full cast list and some quotes from Chase after the break. Read More »
Don’t call it a Sopranos reunion, but James Gandolfini is poised to work with Sopranos creator David Chase once more. The actor has taken a role in Mr Chase’s new project Twylight Zones, aka the film previously referred to as the Untitled David Chase Rock and Roll Movie. In addition, Mr. Gandolfini is circling roles in two other potentially big films: Andrew Dominik‘s Cogan’s Trade, and Stephen Daldry‘s Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Read More »
Disney’s next animated film is Tangled, which retells the classic Rapunzel story with a distinctly Pirates of the Caribbean, ‘maybe boys will see this’ vibe. We’ve seen a couple of teasers, some clips and plenty of art from the film. Now there’s a full trailer, which gives a much better idea of what the film might actually be like. Read More »
Walt Disney Animation Studios has released a new teaser trailer for their 50th full-length animated feature Tangled.
Directed by Byron Howard & Nathan Greno (the co-director and head of story on Bolt respectively), this new telling of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel (the original title of the film), will transport audiences “to a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses. Expect adventure, heart, humor, and hair, lots of hair.” The lead heroine is voiced by Mandy Moore while Chuck‘s Zachary Levi will play a “dashing bandit” named Flynn Ryder who hits the road with the “rebellious, teenage hair apparent.”
I’m definitely digging the watercolor/storybook-look they are employing with this new film. And the trailer is definitely playing up the prince’s character, likely in an effort to appeal to more boys. Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

The Making of WALL-E by Disney
The Pitch: Last month we posted the b-roll footage from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull to show you a bugs eye view of the behind the scenes production of a movie. Today I bring you the B-roll footage from the making of WALL-E. And while they are technically the same thing, the WALL-E footage is completely different because of the way the animation process works. It’s also fascinating to see the guys at Pixar making the magic. The first clip (above) shows concept art creation, environment design, Stanton directing the animators (a must watch), creating the music and sound design and Roger Deakins consulting the cinematography. The second clip (below) focuses on Stanton’s directing of the voice cast and the computer design work that went into creating some of the characters.
