Briefly: I’m not sure that we’ve talked about Transit: it’s the After Dark Films thriller to be directed by Antonio Negret from a script by Michael Gilvary, with Joel Silver as exec producer. The story is ” about a band of thieves on the run from a bank robbery and the suburban family they come across during their escape. When the criminals stash their stolen money in the family’s SUV at a rest stop, the road trippers unwittingly draw the murderous band of outlaws on their trail.”
Boilerplate thriller stuff, but the cast is starting to get a bit interesting. Yesterday Elisabeth Rohm, Harold Perrineau and Diora Baird signed on, and today James Caviezel and James Frain are on board. Caviezel is, of course, the father of the family (would be better if he was cast against type as the criminal leader) and Rohm is his wife. Perrineau and Baird make up part of the thieving team. Still: Caviezel goes from working with Terrence Malick and being in one of the bigger movies of all time (that Mel Gibson thing) to this? Hurm. [THR]
Devin Faraci is, apparently, a keen subscriber of Diora Baird‘s tweets. Over at Chud he is making his case for why they make such worthwhile reading. “Funny, smart and raunchy” he says. I’m glad he’s paying attention, however, as he’s now seen a little shiny glimmer of movie news tucked away. Here’s a tweet from Ms. Baird:
Had an audition for the movie Thor today. Character description was ‘pretty, but sturdy with muscle’. Damn type casting.
Okay, that’s not unfunny or unsmart, is it? Maybe I might go digging for the raunchy later.

Paramount Pictures has released a batch of trading cards for Star Trek, which reveal some cool unseen sequences and characters. Most notable is Diora Baird as the Orion slave girl. You’ve seen her before kissing Kirk in the trailers, but this is the first time we get a real good look at the character. Other images include Old Spock (Leonard Nimoy) coming face to face with Young Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Scotty’s weird alien sidekick friend. Check those two photos out after the jump.
