It’s been several months since we saw the trailer for Snabba Cash II, but now comes the trailer for the first Snabba Cash. No, we’re not getting our numbers mixed up. While the first film was a huge smash in Sweden back in 2010, it’s only now getting around to a proper U.S. release, under the title Easy Money.

The Weinstein Co. have been waiting for the right moment to release it since they picked up the picture two years ago, and now that they’re finally ready to go, they’re giving it their best push. The new trailer comes with a “Martin Scorsese Presents” stamp of approval, name-checks Dragon Tattoo author Stieg Larsson, downplays the subtitles, and helpfully points out director Daniel Espinosa and star Joel Kinnaman‘s involvement in familiar American titles Safe House and The Killing, respectively. Watch it after the jump.

After eight seasons of playing the stubborn, selfish, and mean-spirited — but ultimately helpful — Dr. Gregory House on TV, Hugh Laurie is about to go full-on evil for the big screen.

Abbie Cornish in Talks for ‘Robocop’

Whatever doubts you may still have about MGM’s Robocop remake, at least director José Padilha is recruiting a strong cast to help him out. The Killing star Joel Kinnaman was confirmed as the title character earlier this year, and since then Padilha’s been filling out the supporting roles with stars like Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson – and now Abbie Cornish, who has been offered the female lead. More details after the jump.

In this current remake-happy cinematic climate, that Gone With the Wind is being eyed for a do-over isn’t much of a shocker — but the name behind it certainly is. In an interview with NextMovie, former Baywatch star David Hasselhoff expressed his desire to star in a remake of the classic romance from 1939, and even offered up one idea about the casting.

Hasselhoff told the site that his manager had been unhappy with him for signing on to the ultra-campy Piranha 3DD. “He wants me to do a Knight Rider film or Nick Fury, which I was supposed to do, or a remake of Gone With the Wind,” Hasselhoff said. Later in the conversation, he brought up the potential Gone With the Wind project again. “Hopefully the Gone With the Wind will come, hopefully something great will happen.”

Naturally, the conversation then turned to who could tackle the iconic Scarlett O’Hara role opposite Hasselhoff’s Rhett Butler. Hasselhoff suggested Rachel Weisz, though he initially referred to her as “Rachel Rice.” “I think she’s hot,” he said.

After the jump, WWE’s Leprechaun remake hires a writer and Robocop star Joel Kinnaman offers up new details.

Now that Joel Kinnaman is locked for the lead role in José Padilha‘s Robocop reboot, MGM has started looking to fill out the rest of its cast — which of course means the rumor mill has begun churning in earnest. A new story has surfaced claiming that Edward Norton, Gael García Bernal, and Rebecca Hall are circling the project, and that producers are looking to get Sean Penn on board as well. If it’s true, Robocop could be pulling together a very promising cast. More after the jump.

I’m tempted to put this down in the “actors are usually the last to know” column, but there is probably something to this, given that costume tests and so forth have evidently commenced: Joel Kinnaman, recently chosen to be the new RoboCop for director José Padilha, is talking about the new suit designs. We’ve heard suggestions from Padilha that his take on the film will be a little bit less exaggerated sci-fi cop movie than Paul Verhoeven’s original satire was. Now we’ve got one more detail: Kinnaman says this new version of the character “is going to be a lot more human.” Read More »

Briefly: Not a lot to report here, but a week ago we heard that MGM had offered the lead role in the new version of RoboCop to Joel Kinnaman, and now Deadline confirms that the actor will play the role, following in the steps of Peter Weller. (And following lesser-known RoboCops such as Robert Burke, too.) You might know Joel Kinnaman from the TV series The Killing, and he played the lead role in Snabba Cash, from Safe House director Daniel Espinosa. Read More »
