Yesterday we saw the first images of sets for the new Total Recall sets, on them some white-suited troopers. Now we’ve got the first image of Colin Farrell in the lead role of Doug Quaid, a factory worker who learns, or thinks he learns, that he is really a spy for one of two nation states, Euromerica or New Shanghai. See the full image after the break. Read More »

As we’ve said in several pieces in the past, Rian Johnson‘s third film Looper (which follows Brick and The Brothers Bloom) is one of our most anticipated pictures in the next year or so. FilmDistrict and Tri-Star are releasing the film, and we’d hoped to see it sometime early next year. Sadly, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer than that. Tri-Star has set a date for the film: September 28, 2012. Read More »
Darren Aronofsky‘s original plan was to follow up Black Swan with The Wolverine. Instead, he chose Luscious Plumping Mascara. Aronofsky’s second directing gig (he did a Yves Saint Laurent commercial too) after the incredible success of Black Swan is this brand new Revlon commercial featuring Jessica Biel and rapper/producer Pharrell Williams. In classic Aronofsky fashion, there’s plenty of beauty going on in these frames. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
So does the new Total Recall go to Mars, or not? At first we assumed it did, then it seemed like perhaps it wouldn’t after all, then there was a suggestion that Mars was still part of the picture. But the latest trade break says that Mars is gone, period. Maybe that’s for the best, because while I like Colin Farrell and am ready to see his version of Quaid, the character made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Paul Verhoeven original, I’m not sure I need to see him tell himself “get your ass to Mars.”
This info comes by way of a minor casting report that actually reveals a cameo in the film. If you don’t want to know who the cameo is then stop reading here. (I don’t think it will end up being massively spoilerish, but you never know.) And no, it isn’t Arnold. Read More »
Zach Braff earned a big following with Scrubs and had one of the bigger breakout indie hits of the past decade when he wrote, directed and starred in Garden State. Now he’s starring in a smaller new film, The High Cost of Living, which is hitting VOD this week before getting a limited theatrical release. The movie has got some good notes, and as Zach Braff has promoted it one question naturally comes up: why hasn’t he directed anything since Garden State? (“That’s the question every reporter is asking me,” he said to Movieline.)
The answer to that question is pretty simple — he didn’t want to make a shitty movie — but it’s better to read it in his own words. Plus, the actor says he’s soon to make a film called The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, with Chloe Moretz and Jessica Biel. Read More »
For all you Gerard Butler fans hoping the star of 300 and RocknRolla had grown out of his Ugly Truth/Bounty Hunter romantic rut, we’re very sorry. He’s just signed on to star in Playing the Field, a “soccer comedy,” along with Uma Thurman and Jessica Biel. Butler will play a former soccer pro who agrees to coach his son’s team and finds himself fending off gorgeous soccer moms. Biel will play his ex-wife who is getting re-married and Thurman will be one of the soccer moms. Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds) will direct a script by Robbie Fox (So I Married An Axe Murdered, In the Army Now). Read more after the jump. Read More »
It’s that time again to present possible choices for a couple big roles in upcoming films. With Henry Cavill announced for Superman, naturally people are turning to speculation about other big roles in the film. Chief among them is Lois Lane, and there is a rumored shortlist of people who are in the running to play the intrepid reporter.
In addition, David O. Russell has mentioned a couple actresses that are of interest for the equally intrepid Elena in Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. 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.
