Very few men could step into the very big shoes left by late actor Michael Clarke Duncan, who passed away earlier this year. In 2005, the actor best know for his work in The Green Mile and Armageddon played a bad-ass bodyguard in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller‘s film Sin City, which is currently shooting a sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. Duncan’s role, Manute, plays a part in the film and unfortunately, his passing has forced the director to recast. Their choice is a great one, though: the former TV President of the United States, insurance spokesman and power-hitting Indian, Dennis Haysbert. Read the official statement and what the role will entail after the jump. Read More »

UPDATE: Late Tuesday night, The Weinstein Company officially picked up The Details.

When the Sundance Film Festival first announced their out of competition films, one I was particularly excited for, based solely on its description, was The Details. Written and directed by Jacob Aaron Estes (Mean Creek), The Details stars Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney, Ray Liotta, Kerry Washington and Dennis Haysbert in a dark comedy about a snowball of suburban drama set off by worm-hungry raccoons. Surprisingly, the film actually lives up to that wild one-sentence description providing laughs, shocks and a very well-balanced film considering it makes light of death, infidelity and more.

Tobey Maguire is joining the cast of The Details, an indie black comedy which seeks to address the severe shortage of raccoon infestation movies that has plagued the cinema of late. According to Variety, he’ll be husband to Elizabeth Banks, with Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Anna Friel and Laura Linney also appearing. Directing is Jacob Estes, whose credit was last seen on 2004′s decent and (now) frequently forgotten Mean Creek. Also factoring into the film: a bunch of determined raccoons. Read More »
