Rumors of a Princess Diaries 3 have been floating around for some time now, but in recent weeks they’ve grown ever-so-slightly more concrete. Garry Marshall, who directed both The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, confirms he’s actually had a meeting with stars Anne Hathaway and Julie Andrews — though he stops short of announcing the project outright, maybe because, according to him, Disney likes to do that stuff itself.

It’s almost time for another holiday centric comedy from director Garry Marshall. However, this time the cast of Mother’s Day doesn’t seem quite as packed to the gills with celebrities as its predecessors Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Instead, it’s Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Britt Robertson, Sarah Chalke, Shay Mitchell, Jon Lovitz, Aasif Mandvi, Timothy Olyphant and Margo Martindale starring in the movie, which follows multiple interconnected storylines.
Now a new trailer introduces some characters we haven’t met before, including Mitchell (who debuted the trailer across her social media channels) as Olyphant’s new girlfriend — which doesn’t really sit well with his ex-wife, played by Aniston. Watch the new Mother’s Day trailer with your mom or significant other after the jump. Read More »
It’s been 14 years since Anne Hathaway returned as Crown Princess of Genovia, Amelia “Mia” Thermopolis, in The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement. Since then, the actress has won an Oscar for her turn in Les Misérables, and she’s taken some pretty big roles in films such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Dark Knight Rises, Alice in Wonderland and more. But it sounds like she may be heading back to Disney princess territory again.
Director Garry Marshall says he and Anne Hathaway have talked about getting back together for The Princess Diaries 3. Find out what the filmmaker had to say about the sequel after the jump. Read More »

We’ll keep this one quick because, well, it’s another casting report about New Year’s Eve, the sorta-spinoff romcom from Valentine’s Day director Garry Marshall. The film already has Robert De Niro, Ashton Kutcher, Sofia Vergara, Halle Berry, Zac Efron, Jessica Biel, Michelle Pfeiffer, Abigail Breslin, Hilary Swank, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jon Bon Jovi, Seth Meyers, Til Schweiger and Sienna Miller set to appear.
Now The Wrap says that Josh Duhamel has signed on, but doesn’t specify his role. I know you’re on pins and needles. But wait! THR comes to the rescue, verifying that report and adding that he’ll be one of the leads, “a hopeless romantic who spends the day trying to get to New York in the hope of getting to a party in order to re-meet a mystery girl from the previous year.” Meanwhile Ice ‘Fuck tha Police’ Cube is in talks to play a NYPD cop who is working in some capacity with Hilary Swank’s character, the director of the Times Square celebration. And Ryan Seacrest has the best role of all: himself.
Most of us stop thinking about work as we enter the holiday season, but Hollywood actors and actresses are lining up their jobs for the new year. There is a whole bunch of casting news that’s recently been announced, much of it in the romantic comedy genre, and here’s the rundown.
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks and G4’s Olivia Munn will join Kelsey Grammer and Pierce Brosnan in the comedy I Don’t Know How She Does It, which stars Sarah Jessica Parker as a woman juggling her work on Wall Street with a family life. Parker herself is also joining the huge ensemble for Garry Marshall’s romantic comedy New Year’s Eve while Halle Berry is in negotiations for a role too. 30 Rock award winner Alec Baldwin is the latest actor circling a spot in the Broadway adaptation Rock of Ages. Everyone’s favorite Viper pilot, Battlestar Galactica‘s Katee Sackhoff will star in Sexy Evil Genius, which is about a girl who brings all her exes to the same bar. Rosario Dawson and Lynn Collins are now part of the high school reunion film Ten Year with Chris Pine and Channing Tatum and Ed Burns joins Megan Fox and Jon Hamm in Jennifer Westfeldt’s romantic comedy Friends With Kids.
A lot to digest, we know. There’s so much more info after the jump that you’d be crazy not to click. Read More »
