This new Insurgent trailer — possibly the last before the film opens at the end of March — has a lot of new footage, and condenses the sales pitch for the film down to one minute. (My favorite edits!) We see some of the strife that consumes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and a bunch of big effects shots that dress up the proceedings. We also get shots of a lot of the rest of the cast, including Tris’ beau Theo James, and Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer. Read More »

Before you get all nervous, The Last Airbender: The Legend of Korra is a not a sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s multiple Razzie award winning (or is it losing) film The Last Airbender. It is, however, a sequel to the wildly popular and critically acclaimed animated television show Avatar: The Last Airbender on which that crappy film was based. Set 70 years in the future, The Legend of Korra follows a new Avatar named Korra whose attempts to master the final element, air, leads her to a brand new, steampunk influenced city. After the jump, check out two images from the show, a detailed description as well as the full cast list that includes Lost‘s Daniel Dae Kim, Aliens‘ Lance Henriksen and Spider-Man‘s J.K. Simmons.

Casting Notes: Paul Rudd in My Idiot Brother; Jason Patric in Tilda; Katia Winter in Deathgames; Kiefer Sutherland in Growl?

Paul Rudd will star in My Idiot Brother, an indie comedy that will have the actor as “an idealist, dealing with his overbearing mother, who crashes into the homes of his three ambitious sisters and, in succession, brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc.” Is it any wonder that producers of Little Miss Sunshine are behind this one?
Jesse Peretz directs from a script by Evgenia Peretz (his sister) and David Schisgall. The sisters aren’t yet cast, but we should hear those names soon, as the film shoots next month. [THR]
After the break, new cast for Tilda, Deathgames, and a ‘Fight Club meets werewolves’ movie. Read More »
Casting Notes: Daniel Dae Kim in Deathgames; Marisa Tomei in The Lincoln Lawyer; Matt Damon Possibly in Tender is the Night

Whether because of the Hawaiian location and sometimes unpredictable schedule of ABC’s Lost or because they’re so associated with their island characters, several of the show’s primary actors have yet to book sizable feature gigs outside of the series. Now that the show is about to wrap, however, expect to see Lost mainstays showing up in casting announcements left and right. First up is Daniel Dae Kim, who will appear with Samuel L. Jackson and Kellan Lutz in Deathgames, directed by former VFX guy Jonah Loop.
As we recently mentioned, the story is about a man (Lutz) who is kidnapped by a bizarre mastermind (Jackson) and forced to fight in a modern gladiatorial arena that broadcasts combat online. Kim will play a prisoner who is “an artist who happens to be a master of kendo, a skill that comes in handy when he competes for his life and his wife’s.” Kim will also briefly be seen (essentially a cameo appearance) in The Adjustment Bureau and is in the pilot for the new Hawaii Five-O.

After the break, a legal role for Marisa Tomei, and a possible spot in a remake for Matt Damon. Read More »
