Terry George, who wrote and directed Hotel Rwanda and Reservation Road and wrote In the Name of the Father, has roped in Brendan Fraser to star in the comedy heist film Whole Lotta Sole. The film is written by Mr. George and Thomas Gallagher, and follows “a young man robbing a fish shop in order to pay off a gambling debt; the heist goes terribly — and humorously — awry when it turns into a hostage situation.” Yep: robbing a fish shop.
Brendan Fraser is not the young man; he’s the shopkeeper. (But he is trying to elude his father in law, a gangster.) He can be a solid actor, when not being called upon to mug and grimace in family adventures. No idea how this one will turn out, but we’ll keep a lookout for the actors chosen to play the robber and gangster father in law. [Variety]
After the break, Clifton Collins, Jr. faces the supernatural and Hayley Atwell books an odd gig. Read More »

Joe Johnston is directing Captain America: The First Avenger right now in Manchester, and to say that the Manchester locations are not closed sets would be something of an understatement. Two days ago we saw a video walkthrough of the dressed streets, and there has been a steady stream of photos showing a car chase, explosions and more shooting.
Now we’ve got the first photos and video of Chris Evans at work (not in the Captain America costume, however) and of Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter. Read More »
